Not to add fuel to the fire, but I'm embarrassed at the quality of this game overall and that Rockstar felt comfortable letting it out in the shape it is in, at least the xbox360 version. The crashing is at the level of a bad pc mod or an over-reaching indie title, but there's no excuse for the fact I can't play for more than 30~ minutes at a time before the game completely locks up my xbox. I want to finish the game, much like the OP, but I'm having a hard time justifying my purchase of the game, let alone the time it will take me to finish it thanks to the many issues. Also, since I'm venting in a public place, I think this game is average at best, I can't connect with the shooting or feel of it all (admittedly, it's hard to get into a groove when you know you're on a strict time limit trying to reach a checkpoint before the game implodes) and I absolutely hate Rockstar's engine when it is forced to be a "shooter." Why can't I shoot that guy right in front of me over cover? Because for some reason, my gun is sticking straight in the air thanks to the Euphoria physics goodness. What a fucking disappointment, I have such fond memories of loving the first two, and now I'm have to chug through this broken turd.
