I'm not hating on this game I'm a big gta game fan, loving the story  but free roam just does not feel the same with you dying so easy and losing $5,000 every time i die just make me not want to fight the cops at all in this game unlike other gta games where that is all I did, also about the $5,000 if you die a lot, just having fun like last night for example I die about five times but that $25,000 I lost which is a lot, and cops are much harder this time to kill in gta 5 also where the health cheat and weapons cheat rockstar?

I hear ya, man. The risk of actually committing crimes, in a game called Grand Theft Auto, seems a bit too high to enjoy. With the stealth mechanics, and how cops just fade into existence right in front of you, looks like the best option of avoiding cops is to actually get out of a stolen car and hide... in a game called Grand Theft Auto.

Agreed, cops are way overpowered, takes an age to lose one and two star wanteds and you die way too quick, this is the most defensive GTA I have ever played and yeah, 5k each time you die is a kick in the teeth

I disagree, put your money in stock and you will not lose much money per death. I think the story is very good, but also enjoy roaming. Cops are certainly more of a challenge now. I also find myself a little more hesistant to do wrong, only issue I have is it takes awhile to lose that star. i think a good patch would reduce the time it takes to lose police depending on how many stars you have. Other then that, by far the best gta I have played. I expect online to be very good.

I don't understand how if I shoot a cop in the back of the head with a silenced weapon how it would automatically trigger a police response within the second, even if someone saw it and called 999 instantly it would still take at the least 2 minutes to dispatch a car

Having more fun free roaming then any previous gta. Played since Vice city. I have always wanted harder cops they were just too unrealistic in the previous gtas. This one did it right and ive had so many intense high speed chases, once you get cops down its not that hard. Just pop a u turn while being chased and make alot of quick cuts and you should get out of their cone, once you are its easy to stay out. Hopefully theres cheats for people like you that will make you invincible or no cop cheat.

No. I don't have any of the issues some people are having and I enjoy it very much, and much more than I did in 4. I totally enjoy the added difficulty and risk that others seem to be complaining about. I will concede that it could use a bit of minor tweaking, however. I guess I look at it this way: committing crimes while roaming around should be risky and make you think about possible consequences. I think the developers intended it that way.

My only gripe is that if you are on a roof with only one way up, and you're in a shoot out with the cops, they spawn right on the rooftop and come up behind you.  I can't stand that.

 

Other than that, I'm so used to GTAIV for PC (all modded up with LCPDFR, cars, peds, ENB, ect) that it's going to take a while to get use to the cop AI in a vanilla PS3 game.  

 

Love it though!  GTAV is no disappointment in my book...it's friggin awesome!

I don't like how everyone is shoot to kill. One thing I love doing in GTA IV/V is fighting, but in this one the gangs, like when I'm Franklin on Grove St. near my garage (really needs a new one I hate that place) I can't stand too close to a baller or the whole street gets trigger happy. Same with cops, you get a Star for fighting, and they shoot to kill, "resisting arrest" i.e. running away grants another star event though they never try to arrest you. I switched to Trevor once and he was running from the cops, about four squad cars and a 1 star wanted level.  I accidentally jumped out, and a couple swarmed me not with guns, but with fists. I thought "alright time to beat some pigs" but after beating up one the other four or five shot me dead.

I do have problems with the pointless silencers/stealth aspects of the game, but to expect it to actually take a 'real-life' 2 minutes for a response time is also a bit ridiculous (imagine how far you can get in GTA world in 2 minutes!), if you want that then do you also want it to take an age every time you break into a car, start it up, and then actually drive off in it, instead of the whole process taking about 3 seconds.

 

Some things just CAN'T be realistic or the game would be boring as f*ck and less people would play.

By making a lot of money via the Lester Assassination missions, I was able to buy all the property and split it between my players. 

 

Since each time you get wasted, time passes, I actually make more money by being constantly killed as I get a weekly income per player of hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

 

To begin with though being killed was a pain.

you do realize the helicopters drop police onto the roof right? ive witnessed 2 out of the 4 helicopters that arrived dropping off cops then flying away only to come back bringing more cops to the roof

 

not all of the helicopters that arrive attack you.. some just transport cops/swat or whatever then leave

I don't know if I don't find the free-roaming that fun, but I enjoy walking/bicycling around Los Santos at evening and night. It's just so cool place.

  it's different, a bit more challenging at times but overall i like it. I do agree the police can be a bit over aggressive responding to something "minor" like knocking a few people out but you just have to adapt and actually ditch the scene, it can be fun.

  I realise now that im gonna have to play on another account just to use cheats(and to get my money "right") for those times when i wanna just shoot everybody up.

 

i know alot of people have problems with this or that in the game but ive been playing it every spare second i have since it came out 90% free roaming

couple things.

 

what happened to a cop telling you to freeze like in GTA3. then if you decide to run they open fire.

 

also if you wanna go on a rampage invest all your money in stock first. they will take a couple hundred instead of a couple 1000.

 

punching someone once should not kill them. i wish fist fights would last longer. i feel like if i want to get into a fist fight it is over in 2 seconds then im in a fat police chase.

Its a real shame;

 

We have easily attainable stars that take forever to lose.

 

Omnipresent cops that shoot almost immediately.

 

Nearly NO options to rejuvenate health.

 

Fewer enterable buildings.

 

Exhorbitant hospital fees.

 

Negligible income throughout.

 

Fewer activities.

 

Smaller, emptier map.

 

Clunky controls.

Im having a ball, mostly dicking around in a cargobob. Too much fun snatching cars off a highway and dropping them, or sticky bombing a fuel tanker dropping then detonating.

  well im able to lose the cops on 3 stars easier if i duck off thru alleyways, use your  minimap to avoid them, its harder to lose them on highways but not impossible (easier if you have a faster car you can outrange them then get off the road) once you get used to how that react 3 stars and under its really not a probllem. even on foot just be evasive when you run pay attention to the dots

  also if you're gonna shoot it out with the cops its possible but you just gotta be aware of whats going on around you. i have killed several cops in a standoff behind a building and got away on foot, i had to run for awhile but its doable. also another thing ive done is driven into the ocean ditch the car and swim out (dive deep under) until eventually their "cone of vision" cant reach you, but they do have boats so that might not work everytime though. (its fun to let them think you drowned in the crash)

You definitely aren't.  I've never gotten so bored of a game so quick.  It's very disappointing that they took all the fun out of free roaming.  If the invincibility cheat doesn't get discovered soon, this may be the first GTA I end up returning after I'm done with the story.  The game just isn't fun like the others.

It's always been like that. Automatic 2 stars for killing a cop.

Personally I love the free roam. Although I wasn't sure about the driving at first, I'm loving driving at high speeds, chases on the freeway are intense. The $5k per death is a bit of a bitch (when you guys say invest to bring it down, do you mean in a certain stock, or invest it all so you have only a small cash reserve?), playing with Trevor after coming home from the pub a little drunk, I burned through about $150k just tearing up sh*t.

I thought it was three stars for killing a cop? It just defeats the whole point of a silencer, for example the military base as-well they seem to have x-ray vision. Don't put in a silencer if it only works in certain cases

cop fighting is what trevor is for. I used him and got a 4 star wanted level, escaped on foot and evaded capture by hiding behind a bin deep down some ally.

 

I suggest using vehicles you can control.

 

Trevor had to

Spoiler
. so I done the first one in with a sticky bomb in the road. Rode up a hill so far away. turned and ended them all with a sniper rifle. Then got the vehicle.

 

That heist is AWESOME btw.

 

With franklin I used a silencer for the whole mission where you

Spoiler
and didn't get shot once until the top. :D

 

So I was off topic. I just wanted to chat about it.
