In general, the appearance of New York is nicely done. The buildings seem realistic enough, as do the textures used, giving the city a nice, lived-in look from the tops of the skyscrapers. When you get down to street level, however, you begin to see that the complexity that is a metropolitan area such as New York is not really done justice by simple car movement patterns and people wandering aimlessly along the sidewalks. It serves its purpose, I suppose, but it makes it difficult to maintain suspension of disbelief... especially when the civilians stand in the street for no reason."
