- The game was designed to run at 60 FPS and has problems of varying severity at framerates higher or lower than 60. Below 60 the player may clip into cars, which can pose an issue in many destruction missions.
- Above 60 FPS both player car physics are negatively effected, causing cars to fly off edges at uncontrollable speeds and the player character being able to jump higher than originally intended. In some cases at excessively high frame rates, the game can blue screen playing loud static sounds.
