Ok, while sitting in a boat I have noticed that I cannot look to the rear of the boat. This is odd and it really disrupts my immersion. The reason is that I am sitting, facing the side of the boat so all it would take to see behind the boat would be a quick twist of the neck.

This is not the only immersion breaking flaw in the game either. There are hills that a five year old child could walk up that are inaccessable to me in the game...WTF.

In addition to those flaws I have noticed a real game wrecker, if an npc is in a vehicle turret and also in a fiery area or being flamed with a flame thrower he is not affected by the flames until/unless he moves out of the turret position.

I have more and I've only really been playing for about a week but those are my top three peeves here.

Oh-yeah, one more big one. If a buddy rescues you and you have a secondary weapon equipped you are not only forced to take a pistol, but you also drop your secondary weapon and are moved away from it. That one has caused me to reload the game everytime I've been rescued.

Hold down both left and right mouse button at the same time and you will look behind.

As an aside, and this is not a personal attack at all, but I see a lot of posts on this board that assume something is broken or flawed when really, it isn't.

Right you are Rickidoo. BTW, you can also do the same thing to see behind whilst driving any vehicle as well. I can't say ive tried it while flying a glider tho.

As for the buddy giving you a pistol and causing your secondary to drop, I hate it when that happens but if I can get back to the exact spot I went down I can often find my uzi or grenade launcher and recover it.

Be aware that it will be a discarded or used weapon as any other picked up weapon is and degrade really fast.
