* DevelopersForesight: In an early mission, you need to save one of your allies during a protection money run. Normally, you get ambushed while saving him, and have to gun down the guys who steal your money during said ambush. That said, if you find the guy who steals from you and kill him before saving Sam, the mission ends then and there.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading: The PS2 port is the primary offender of this trope - it takes around 30 seconds - 1 minute for a mission, Freeride, or race to load. Add additional time to load up the New Ark/Hoboken district when crossing the Guiliano Bridge, entering the countryside, or going inside a building. Expect to clock half your game time waiting for the damn game to load. Averted with the PC version though - the time it takes is about 10 seconds and the game doesn't have to load when crossing the Guiliano Bridge.
