I didn't make it!
At first, I thought it was pretty neat how many people go down after being shot, but without dying. However, sometimes it seems a bit..much. One instance, on the run from the police, I turned and shot one twice in the chest with the Carbine rifle. He struggled back to his feet, and was rewarded with another two rounds, putting him back down. He writhed around for a bit, and then got back up, grabbing his shotgun and firing at me. Annoyed, put *another* burst into his chest and head, and then ran off. Only to have him start hobbling after me!
What do they make these people out of?!
Pretty cool isnt it. I like how they made it so they struggle after being shot, makes the game more fun.
I share your frustration. But, think of it this way: you're shooting at a cop and what do cops usually wear? bullet proof jackets. Now, when Nikko dons a bp jacket, he can take a lot of hits himself. So, it's not like the game is unbalanced, however unrealistic it may be for someone to take 10 rifle shots to the chest and live through it to hobble after you.

Head shots in this game are about as easy as breathing.... Instant Kill

It's pretty cool that people can be taken down without killing them. I never noticed injured people attacking me again though, even if they limped off.
When a cop goes down you will hear yelling "Call the emergency services and tell them an officer went down" and such. Not sure if you can actually do that, I don't think so. I walked away a bit to kill some more russian criminals, when I turned around the cop and other downed people were all gone... :(

Indeed. It's especially easy when the person you're shooting at is hiding behind a crate, etc; their head still shows LOL
