| 1 star-Police will chase you by foot and will try to beat you down and arrest you|
2 Star-Police will use there guns and arrest you if possible
3 star-Helicopter and swat team,K-9 Unit Come after you
4 star-The FIB Come after you and
5 star-The Military comes after you
That's how I picture the wanted system to be like
Pretty much this. My guess is that Rockstar completely reworked the wanted level with different counties, improved police AI, snipers, line-of-sight/stealth and the existence of the Military. Once they did this they simply thought that a sixth star was not needed so they scrapped it.
Personally, I didn't really care for the sixth star in GTA IV. During it, I felt like the police's AI just stopped trying and just rammed me non-stop with NOOSE cars. It just felt too gamey for me. Quality > quantity.
