Helicopters fly stupidly and are no fun at all

Planes take off in 10 feet

Can't fart like in GTA 1

No mafia types

No drug dealing

 

**I could add many more, but I won't. Was this the GTA to rule them all? f*ck no it is not. The things that shoulda been in this game are missing in action, and it's just too many to be able to live in that GTA world for years like past GTA's. The game is beautiful considering, but it just has poor design choices plaugued by too many problems that don't meet the quality and standards of previous GTA titles. I just don't see V being held in high regards like past titles. Nothing really memorable about this game. It's easy forgettable. A very big disappointment. Now I'm sure we'll be bombarded with Bully, Max Gayne 22, and other titles that will keep us many years away from a next-gen GTA, whci I won't buy until I see that R* has stepped up their game/being innovative like in the first few GTA games cause if not, it'll just be a rent for me.

You are 100% right, they can simply add many of these features to the game, but they didn't. Why? Because of money. For me GTA V is biggest disappointment ever. They promised us a lot more. We all think that GTA V was in production for 5 years. No. It was in production for 3 years. And in the same time R* North worked on Agent. That's why GTA V sucks. Seriously, GTA HD are not true GTA games. Do you want play true GTA? Buy San Andreas, Vice City, or III. And maybe IV because it had atleast good story. V is completely broken, from f*cked silencers, through f*cked police AI, to f*cked story. Why they don't listen to their fans. We wanted more vehicles? "Let's make more vehicles with f*cked up handling". We wanted fun cheats? "Let's make god mode time limit and skyfall". We wanted buying properties? "Let's make buisnesses with boring missions, almost 0 profits, and without interiors!". We wanted car mods? "Let's make 80 colors instead of color palette, and few mods without sense".

 

Why R* why?!

add to that the game size! 8420? I don't blame R* for that. if they add all these and dump all the money, the game will be AT LEAST 100000k! what PS3 can stand that? unlimited install time+ infinite lag= GTA V with all what you wanted! :rampage:

I had to uninstall GTA IV and Spyro: dawn of the dragon so I can install the game and it worth it. the game is jumping. I only hate abut when you fall from a helicopter (example), when I land on the water, I die. and when I jumped from a cliff on my dirt bike (sanchez) I landed perfectly safe, but when I did the same with a LOWER cliff on the ati 801, I died :wtf:

Please tell me how the hell features like drivable train, jetpack, fun cheats, gang wars or drug dealing can make game unstable on consoles? They already do that before - San Andreas. On PS2. PlayStation 2! Previous generation!! Almost 10 YEARS AGO!! And now they give us GTA IV with new map, story, weapons and cars. Because what can you do in freeroam after story? Nothing. Oh sorry, you can drive around and kill people.

Are you serious? Driveable train? What more are you going to do? Rotate camera view around the cabin area? Drive it off road? If the train was driveable, you couldn't really do any more with it.

A jetpack may be missing, but you still have various helis, jets, various planes and can swim and dive.

Gang wars get old after awhile. Remember when you were just trying to get from A to B, only to die from some random gang bullets? Or you just found a nice car, only to get it jacked by a gang (which still happens anyway). Redefending territory could become tedious too.

Personally, I don't believe GTA V is that bad. At all.

The only real edge San Andreas has concerns the side activities. Which largely consists of dancing in big, sparsely-detailed cardboard boxes mashing button sequences, going on "romance trips" which is almost the exact same thing as hanging out with friends included in V, playing cops and shooting certain people (which is basically the same as free roam mayhem) and going in restaurants and gyms to get fat/fit.

so lets count here:

animals+ "drivable train"+ "gang wars"+ "jetpack"+ insta-large map+ customisable cars+ customisable weapons+ tons of vehicles+ HD graphics+ A.l system+ Police-wanted level system+ driving system+ switching system+ swimming underwater+ need I say more?

Exactly. In fact I think in many ways the HD games are superior.

GTA;V is a legit 7/10 in terms of single player.

 

This game is so ridiculously over-hyped, its really unbelievable.  

 

1.Broken Stealth (Suppressors useless in free roam ie. shooting in secluded area still gets you 1 star ) 

 

2.No Nightclubs (Had them in IV,VC and San Andreas WTF R*? no excuse for tha.t)

 

3.Over-Aggressive Pedestrian AI ( Peds punching you / calling the police on you for standing in one place and facing them.It makes no sense) 

 

4. Still can not commit acts of self defense (Punching a ped back will result in 1 star, which subsequently transitions to 2 stars in a matter of seconds. Also shooting a gang member back will result in the same outcome, ie 1-2 star instant transition )

 

5.Police- AI this time around is really retarded, no other word for it.  ( Psychic cops "accidentally always know where you are and they spawn in front of you.)

 

6. Money is once again useless. 

 

7. Instant stars (Killing a LONE ped while in the bushes using a suppressor will result in a Insta-Star, it's like its almost scripted)

 

8. Takes too long for wanted level to go away which in turn makes the game more annoying than it is fun IMHO.( Feels tedious to get into major shootouts or go on rampages like in the previous GTA games,when you have to worry about a 1-2 minute chase afterwards.)

 

9. Cheats suck so bad its not even funny, Manual cheats really R*? IV had cell phone cheats which worked perfectly and didn't need to be changed. And the 5 Minute time limit on God-Mode was just dick-move by R*, plain and simple.

 

10. East Los Santos is so neglected its not even funny. 

 

11. Gangs once again are boring/lifeless(no random drive-bys or general gang warfare going on in the city unless you start it yourself like in IV. It couldn't have been hard to script this in the 5 years of production, i'm sure but idk i'm no programmer.)

 

12. Radio is complete sh*t. Not even close to being on SA's level, or even IV. 

 

13. Locked interiors (ie. Casino)

 

14. Cant buy food to refill health 

 

15. Cant crouch

 

16. Very bland storyline

 

17. Protags are forgettable IMHO

 

18. sh*tty Mini-Games. 

 

So much more but don't feel like typing it all. 

 

I don't know what it is about GTA;V SP , but it just feels so soulless..

 

This game does not deserve a 10/10.

Yep. They could easily download a San Andreas conversion mod for GTA IV or even a mod for San Andreas where the textures are improved.

Explain this to me. I have been seeing a lot of comments about this lately. How did Grand Theft Auto 5 go from being the best game ever made a few weeks ago to sucking really bad? All of the sudden people are starting to say it sucks? What happened? Is it only because of all the bugs? Like the millions of people that lost millions of dollars worth of cars in their garage and stuff online? Because if that's the reason, that doesn't make it a bad game. Every game has it's problems. It happened to me. I lost all my cars. I got mad, I almost stopped playing it, but I still respect, and will probably always respect this game as being a masterpiece and a standard of games, nothing compares to this game, no game does. This game is the new standard of gaming. When someone things of video games, Grand Theft Auto 5 is what they will think of. So, if you think this game sucks, I want to here your reasons. Better make them good because I will be judging your reasons. All you haters are the same, you never give anything a chance. Just like with Grand Theft Auto 4. So I'm interested, give me your reasons.

I do love the game alot, but not everyone is going to think it's a masterpiece, just saying. Different people have different opinions, though I do admit there's too much negativity here.

Just felt that this needed to be revisited. Maybe things need to be simplified. GTA Mario Cart. 

 

It's amazing, the only thing that slightly annoys me is that the cabbies are still stupid. On that note I am much better when I take a fare to a stop, and not a bad haul either, over $200.00 a fair, depending but that's about right. 

WHAT taxi missions? Yes that's right, you can take a taxi and do fares.

I agree with you @AtomicPunk, I waited for this game since the first trailer, what a big let down...
BTW, what's up with the fall animation when you jump from a plane/heli, it's the same boring animation with their back facing the ground everytime, IV's falling animation was way better...

My biggest issue is that some of my personal disappointments seemed like no brainers to me. But somehow they decided to leave these things out.

 

Yep, I felt the same way. It really beggars belief. 

 

 

The most enjoyable part of GTA V for me are the cars, not the driving, cause the driving is a f*cking abomination, no the cars itself. Unfortunately this is enjoyment is short lived due to the overall half-assed nature of the game.

 

 

@ Raavi

 

I totally agree. One of my most favorite features of GTA V was it's cars. The cars in this game look supreme, you really felt like owning the stuff in real life. What a wonder that Rockstar can get something as simple as this so right, but other simple stuff just gets left out or with no real improvement.

 

Gang wars get old after awhile. Remember when you were just trying to get from A to B, only to die from some random gang bullets? Or you just found a nice car, only to get it jacked by a gang (which still happens anyway). Redefending territory could become tedious too.

 

 
@ hflgk
 
I'd certainly rather stuff like gang wars over yoga, tennis, triathlon and those weak Strangers And Freaks missions any day. It does not take a genius or Einstein to work out that many people would find gang wars fun as a side activity.

Well to Rockstar's credit, they did bring back alot of stuff that was missing in GTA IV like tanks, planes, bigger map, customization, buying property (though it's poorly implimented in GTA V imo), better mission variety, smoother controls e.g. However, there's still stuff it could have had like more interiors, purchasable safehouses in single-player, (even Chinatown Wars and Red Dead had them) drivable trains, gang warfare, more rewards for doing stuff e.g. Maybe eve. new features like kidnappings and such. Why they can't let you put people in car trunks at any time when there's even instances and references to it by Trevor in missions, is just beyond me. Even RDR and Sleeping Dogs let you kidnap that. I don't see the point in Yoga either, it's just a boring version of the dancing minigame from TBOGT. Maybe I'm hoping for way too much, but I don't know. I really don't wish to sound whiny and unappreciative. There clearly was effort shown with this game, but maybe it wasn't quite the game it could have been.

 

While I don't think it's as bad as some people say, I also don't think it deserves so many perfect scores. The game is still a great amount of fun for me (even after the story), but it is not without flaws, and doesn't quite feel like the "big and ambitious" game that it was made out to be. I felt RDR was more like that, because of it's perfected setting, memorable characters and superb western open-world gameplay.

 

As compared to other GTA games, I do like it just as much as I like San Andreas, but not Vice City.

My favorite GTA ever is Vice City, but I will tell you now, I think San Andreas was and still is better than GTA V.

People don't look at the features that the game has, and instead looks at features that it doesn't have. FORGET ABOUT SAN ANDREAS, IT'S BEEN 9 YEARS, DROP THE NOSTALGIA!

Here's my thought's and I strongly believe this...

 

The GTA's people mainly quote as their favourite are the ones with strong themes and strong direction - namely San Andreas and Vice City. By strong themes, I mean, Vice City is so easily identifiable. It sold you a slice of Miami in the 80's and San Andreas - Los Angeles in the 90's. No other gaming companies give you the experience to go back in time (not far but to times alot of GTA's original fanbase might remember as a kid or would at least be framiliar with through films they grew up on - like Scarface was to Vice City as Boyz In Da Hood is to San Andreas).

 

IV is up their on people's favourites but I would have set IV in a time in New York where crime was much bigger. A time we would be familiar with through some of our favourite films Taxi Driver, The Warriors, Ghostbusters, Saturday Night Fever, Donnie Brasco and many more. Basically, would have set it in the 70's or 80's again. The city becomes more of a character that way. Why?

 

Well, 2 modern GTA's in a row. Some of the cars didn't even change at all really in V. There's not so much contrast between games in terms of styles and fashions in the game. I personally loved the wardrobe in San Andreas and the 90's haircuts. It all added a sense of humour, a sense of strong direction and stronger sense of a more prominent theme, visually speaking. 

 

For me, an 70's, 80's or 90's setting has a stronger visual theme than a modern day setting. We all live in the modern day so many designs aren't "new" to us or "curious" to us as a gamer because we live it as we speak. But... having a flat top haircut and and old skool OG outfits or wearing a Hawaiian shirt like Vercetti was more visually engaging to me and it was more of a gaming experience and escapism that I enjoy about gaming. I liked being sucked in to a world in a time gone by. Why are future sci-fi games so popular and games like Red Dead and Skyrim? They take you to a place you'll never get to experience in your lifetime. You see how people lived then, what clothes they wore, how they spoke and acted - the worries and fears and revelations that have since came to light. 

 

V is great and I love Rockstars efforts. There is so much attention to detail in many parts of the game and other things just seem a little neglected. 

 

Hopefully Rockstar can "go back to their roots" and set a game in the recent past and really bass it off films their original fans loved with a classic empire building theme. Maybe one where you don't seem like you are working for others for free all the time. 

 

I've always mused over the thought of a GTA set in Las Venturas in the late 70's/early 80's. The main inspiration for the film would be Casino. You start off with nothing and end up becoming the King of Las Venturas. A sense of achievement will be the overall feeling when completing the game. 

 

Don't get me wrong, I like modern day too.. but I live here in the modern day. I want my next GTA to take me somewhere "new."

Everybody who's talking about the jetpack not being in the game, don't rule it out until somebody figures out that Mt.chilliad puzzle.

Haven't read a lot of the thread but i agree with some of what i have read but picture this, if a different publisher just popped up with this actual GTA V game out of the blue without all the hype and R* copyrights and stuff, people would be wanking their grandads off over it.

 

You bought into the hype and now it's Rockstars fault?

 

I'm not a fanboy but it's their job to hype it up lol

The cops in this game are annoying. You can be in the middle of nowhere, fire an RPG and get like an instant wanted level. Way too overpowered as well.

Second, the NPC and pedestrians. The PEDs in this game are the WORST. None of them are funny. They have no personalities. It absolutely disgusts me. Zero creativity went into these f*cking robots.

Period.

I like V, at first I didn't, my first impression was particularly bad, I wasn't enjoying it at all, however it's grown on me and i'm really liking it now, the online is a little too complex at times, but I am also enjoying that, funnily enough, for reasons which are complaints for ArcaneKnight.

R* should've stayed true to their roots. GTA online is a disappointment. I honestly don't even really play it, it's just not that fun. And with how much they inflated the pricing on car mods, takes way too long to get anything to even be able to enjoy the game. And they did it on purpose, there's no reason for it other than to get people to buy cash cards. With how much they were docking people for dying and charging for gun attachments and car mods, it was blatantly obvious what they were doing with online.

 

I think that having expensive items makes it more fun, obviously it is a cash grab, but It makes it great for me because I really need to work at it to be able to save up and get the things I want, I hate games where after a couple days you have way too much cash and nothing to spend it on *Cough IV cough.* Having to save for a long time makes it more fun in my opinion. Besides which, if you don't wanna save up you can still play the game modes like you usually would in GTA IV MP.
 

 

 

Atleast in GTA 4 I could choose Race.. Not get thrown into GTA races and have to continue backing in and out of games via GPS constantly wasting time. I liked how easy it was to pick your game mode, and back out of lobbies you didn't like and find a new one with relative ease. If you wanted free roam, then you had that option. Now you have to access everything via free roam. Yeah there's the quick game through your phone, but you still get thrown back into free roams where you then have to worry about depositing your race earnings before someone tries to come and kill you for it.

Well in GTAIV you had to access everything from offline, which was just as annoying when you end up in an empty lobby or kicked or whatever, you had to go all the way back to offline, then back online again, it took longer than going free-roam to race. A valid complaint about not being able to just continure doing races though, unless the people in your lobby want them. However complaining about getting robbed for money is a bit silly considering you can deposit via mobile quite easily, or within 5 seconds turn on passive mode so you can't be killedh

 

 


I won't be buying another R* game on day 1 again. I bought MP3 day 1 and less than 6 months later that game was like 14 bucks, I think it even sold on XBL one weekend for less than 10. R* lost a lot of respect, and this half million dollar front isn't about "paying fans back for their patience" it's about trying to lure people back to a game they effectively destroyed to the point nobody gives a sh*t about it anymore.

Good going R*.

I am not really understanding this, your other points carry some weight, but this, it's not even related to V at all, you're upset that the game didn't sell well and ended up in a bargain bin, well big whoop, everyone makes mistakes sometimes, hating on a company for making something that didn't sell that well is a bit ridiculous, and Max Payne just wasn't the game people were looking for, even if they did keep it the same as it was before it still wouldn't have sold well, the originals weren't exactly hits either, very much a niche market meant for PC where most of its sales came from.

 

 

Dumbed-down vehicle damage

Shorter story than previous GTA's

Idiotic ped AI

Super cops

No good cheats

Cannot spawn vehicles anywhere you want

Uninspired vehicle mods

Nothing much to do after beating the game

Tanks blow up too easy

Big rock truck blows up too easy

Cars blow up from jumping

Yeah that makes sense, you complain that vehicle damage was watered down, and then you complain that vehicle blow up too easily...? What? That's the complete opposite of each other.

**I could add many more, but I won't. Was this the GTA to rule them all? f*ck no it is not. The things that shoulda been in this game are missing in action, and it's just too many to be able to live in that GTA world for years like past GTA's. The game is beautiful considering, but it just has poor design choices plaugued by too many problems that don't meet the quality and standards of previous GTA titles. I just don't see V being held in high regards like past titles. Nothing really memorable about this game. It's easy forgettable. A very big disappointment. Now I'm sure we'll be bombarded with Bully, Max Gayne 22, and other titles that will keep us many years away from a next-gen GTA, whci I won't buy until I see that R* has stepped up their game/being innovative like in the first few GTA games cause if not, it'll just be a rent for me.

GTA HD are not true GTA games.
