I don't know if the game was easy or if I'm just a good gamer... but the story mode presented no real challenge at all. Yeah, I had to have a couple of gos on some of the missions but generally speaking it was really no trouble.

 

In comparison to Grand Theft Auto IV (which I found a bitch to complete) this one was a doozy! 

 

Anyone else?

As much as I love the game, it was stupidly easy. I heard people saying that the final mission was so difficult (Ending C) but it was a walk in the park, and pretty short.

I think what makes this game a bit too easy are the checkpoints and the fact you can skip sequences after 3 failed attempts.

My hardest mission was getting the Police Van with Stingers in. Must've redone that about five-six times.

Could've done with that bloody information sooner! LMAO!!! Seriously though, I didn't go on the internet once during the game, save for the time(s) when I had to do it for a mission.

I played through on free aim and it was still a little too easy for my liking. I also tried a few missions with assisted aim to see how much easier it was and it was just ridiculiosly easy with that option. So IMO best bet is to use free aim to make it that little bit more difficult but still is a easy game to beat.

I'm almost completed, I'm trying to do everything else first besides the main story missions, i'm like 75% of the 100% ( if you even count that as a 100%, there's more then 100% in the game) but i got like 10 main missions left i think. But yes it seems very easy compared to IV. And i didn't use any cheats.

yeah its way too easy.... Especially the Big Score mission... when you aim at the mercs they rarely hit you. When you're in cover that is, when your out of cover thats a different story. Its like the cover system completely protects us even when we're leaning out to aim. The merryweather mercs dont have any good tactics and just shoot at the pillar it was disappointingly easy. Its just shooting after shooting after shooting some dumb AI that cant even hit you. I really hate games like that.

Yeah, I can't help but compare it to IV. I did complete IV, but it was NO walk in the park. As for cheats, I never use them. What's the point?

Did you play "24: The Game" on PS2? You want to see a game with very bad AI in gunfights, check that one out!

Agreed. I have about 10 missions left as well, and haven't really struggled. With IV there were times where I would try a mission over and over again. The biggest issue, which someone else also mentioned, is the checkpoint element to it. In IV you could be 10 minutes into a mission, die, and you would have to start all over again. It took me about 2 years to complete that game as I routinely left it for a couple of months or more when I struggled.

Yes to be honest I found this the easiest gta game in a long time, but the story and missions were great. Id say it was easier than III and vice city. San Andreas was median in difficulty, and gtaIV was a hard game in places. Still, I enjoyed the story.

Yea I was thinking the same thing. I don't think I died once during any of the big missions. Game was a breeze. Can't wait to do more in Online.

I liked the fact that you didn't have to do the whole mission again if you died. With previous games I always felt like I was being beaten over the head for making mistakes. I'd certainly say this one was more gamer friendly in that respect.

I guess they're supposed to be easy so everyone can play them hence being able to go for gold. If you find it too easy, turn free-aim on and go for gold on every mission.

Yep it is easy, that's why I use free aim to give myself more of a challenge, the last heist was disappointingly easy as well, I thought it was going to take more effort and be a little longer.

Agreed, but I guess this way it is always going to mean completing the game a bit quicker. Perhaps that was Rockstar's design though, give us two weeks to complete it and then get ready for GTAO.

It's called accessibility.

 

Accessibility means more cash.

The game is pretty easy as far as the story goes, and yeah you're prob a good gamer too. Made up missions (ie: stunt jumping in the base to steal military hardware, 4/5 star cops, etc) are pretty tough imo.

Like others have said, the checkpoints help a bunch.

I just wen to the police station, knocked a calling cop out and took it without a problem, I didn't even get a wanted level. And if you think GTAIV was difficult you're not really that good of a gamer I think, cause that game was allready way too easy. GTAV was just a joke, it's more an interactive movie then a game. They trying to get as much money as possible by trying to get in as much casuals as possible. The passive mode and "badrep pool" in online is really one of the most ridiculous things ever to be implemented into a game Imo, it would've been ok in other games, sure, but this is GTA, not some simulator.

 

edit: the final missions I didn't even have a single problem, so that just nor normal for a game like this.
