The game is great but they really took a lot of the GTA sandbox out of GTA V.
I mean that's the whole idea of a sandbox yeah? Give you all the tools and let you play? A series with the history of GTA should have a mammoth array of things to do at this point, but for everything they have given us, they have taken stuff away.
I haven't completed the game yet, but things I would like returning...
Ambulance Missions, Vigilante Missions, Fire Truck Missions, Proper Rampages (hidden package types), RC Missions, Sports Arenas you could take part in special events (track racing), Motorbike Assault Courses (Vice City style), MUCH more interiors like Shopping Malls, Cluckin' Bell and Burger Shot, Hot Dog Vendors you can actually interact with, Random Parked Vans with special event missions, Auto Car Retrieval Missions (where they just give you a picture of a car and you have to find it), Territory Warfare (Gang or otherwise), Driving Trains, Basketball....I could probably go on.
Instead we get Casinos and racetracks and arenas which you cant enter, or nothing to do. Because they have sold us a MP game with a feature stripped SP game around it.
Again, dont get me wrong, Im enjoying it, I think they have done great strides with the missions, which are MUCH better than IV's, and a far more interesting narrative with the 3 characters.
It's just I spend most of my time in free roam thinking "I wish I could do this...."
