    iksolokosA little info that might be worth adding. If you start a new game, your rank carries over. As does collected badges, cars, landmarks, etc.

    jSquared 099yea you don't get additional experience for replaying cases. Once you finish the story you need to get the rest of your needed experience through other means

    Railer wKaYeah, and by starting a new game you cannot do street crimes again for quick XP, either. Just found out :-(

    HeyMrBassmanNice guide, thanks. Is there a way to see how much actual XP you've earned?

    (btw, rank 13 is called the Outsider outfit, not "outside")

    what other means? so... i finished the game and now i am replaying to get 5 stars on each case and just now, at the end of homicide desk i noticed that i didn't get any XP... do i need to start a new game because i am wasting my time, or is there any other way to get XP after the game was finished?

    Phoenix C64i'll answer myself, you get XP from doing street cases and dicovering locations in free roam just fine.

    DaLeprechaunManGLITCHED: So I had gotten this along with all non-dlc achievements. When I next get on, no achievements for this game on profile. I loaded last game and most re-popped, including the 100% completion and most of stat related achievements However The Brass, the collectible achievements(ex. auto fanatic, hollywoodland) and single action specific achievements,(ex. the moose, puplic menace) did not. Not sure how to procede but guess I'll just have to delete/transfer save files and start from scratch

    TotyToeIt also seems there's a limit on XP for asking the right questions. Even when there are 4 or 5 questions in one interrogation I only ever seem to get 15XP for getting them all right...
