Thanks "Mr Jim" for taking the time and making the effort on this game.  Yes, I am one who liked the first game and like this second game as well.  All games seem to have some kind of glitch or shortcoming and to be honest this one does too. People complain mostly about stuttering graphics which mainly, as you said, equates to either Ram or CPU short commings.

 On the other hand I am over 250 hours into the game.  Around ten times as much played as you.  I played thru the story on Normal setting the first time, then hard the second time and then Realistic the third time.   Some side missions are pretty good, others meh. 

What shines for me is the PVP play.  I loved it in the first game and the same in the second.  I like climbing the leader boards, yes, but I like cashing in other players even more.  What is your game name?  I will look for you.  Then I will kill you.

I think I'm GuestJim on every gaming platform (not many places allow Guest_Jim_* because of the special characters) including UPlay, but I still have online components disabled currently. Haven't gotten back in the game since I finished the review actually, and then I had some computer problems that it has not completely recovered from yet. (I've made all the fixes I could think of and am nearly back to full performance, but not quite there and Watch_Dogs 2 is one game that could suffer because of the CPU load.)

I liked the review you gave, it was honest.  Online, is a great way to break up the game and put your skills up against live players.  Its good energy.  A car chase with a live players can be thrilling.  The pace is insane.   Hope you give it a shot when you have time.  See you down the road.
