Nice to see Rockstar trying to mix it up, but it just doesn't seem to quite work - perhaps we needed Jack to be more visible in the earlier cases.
That is exactly it. I think it could have worked out if they had made Jack more visible (other than the newspaper clips) and maybe they could have done the switcheroo where in the earlier cases you see Jack as terrible and a bad character and then by the end you are loving Jack (which you still do).
I really hate Cole the more that I think about it. I still don't think it makes sense that he cheats on his wife..
