I havnt beaten the game yet but that doesn't mean I cant criticize it. So all you gta rockstar paid forum trolls and gta fan boys that wont let people criticize, move on somewhere else with your stupid one liners and listen to a die hard fan of the series who cares about it. Im not some 15 yr old who whines at everything, I am 27 with commitments and obligations so i dont have much time to game anymore.
The game is pretty on the eyes, I like the graphics alot, very good job.The lighting, colors and tiny detail does catch my eye and is pretty much the only reason I play it. I like the way the peds interact with you for looking at them and how people get out of cars randomly and comment on your car stuff like that is cool. But after 5 years this is what these millionaires have to offer? Its a nail in the coffin for the gta series and they know it.
I dont know what they were going for realism or an arcade game(every game anymore gets better graphics but worse gameplay). The vehicle handling is not realistic.The mass of the vehicles makes it feel like gta 3 again rounding turns at like 50 mph. Flying a chopper or even a jet gets owned by a little wind and gets blown around like its in a tornado. Helicopters can catch up to a jet etc. but yet you die realistically from a few bullets or when you get ejected from the car.
I like the challegening police, it really makes you have to use cover and get creative to avoid them. But whats with 2 stars automatically? Cops want to kill you for resisting or defending yourself? Their aim is too perfect they dont miss.
I hook up a car and walk half a block down the street turn around for a second and its gone-terrible ram issues. I bring the police to the hood for a shootout, i turn around the cops disapear and all the gangs go inside.
Respawning helicopters are too fast making a shootout impossible.
The radio stations are boring and lame, no up to date new music but a few.
The game was rushed obviously they took and recycled so many sounds from gta 4 such as the horns,police horn, bus sounds, and kept too many cars from gta 4 in the game with just rebuffed graphics. Kinda almost just looks like a mod. When the game doesnt want to load new cars all you see are just suv's and jeeps on the streets. A few bus stops are backwards they just scrolled through the city drag and dropping things when they edited it fast.
Why in the world would you take away the death camera so fast so we cant see what happens when we die? And the cop mode? Gta is mainly about running from the cops and yet we cant be one and get a star if we help out a victim. Eh lets play darts instead. They say get creative since there nothing else to do in the game beside play tennis? yoga, really?(racistly only the white people can do yoga) Golf? Really? SO many activities to do thanks guys. Where are the heists, recruitment of gang members for robberies, car jack lists, etc. Who cars about gettin a stupid tatoo or haircut or playing dressup when its guys that play this game mostly.
The game is pretty racist depending on how far racism goes for you personally before you say something. The blacks in the hood saying comments like white boy stuff like that. The way they make franklin sound and droppin the n1gg4 word so many times. And whats with GTa games, that are about gangs criminals and killing robbing etc, and homosexuality. They have to force gayness in these games like its their first priority. The ballad of gay tony where the gay guy is of course white. Now they make you play as a bisexual white trevor but the black franklin gets all the calls from the white girls.
The missions are very sweet so far, i like them but it still isnt interactive at all to where you could change the outcome of something. Its just prescripted and they guide you through. The dialougue responds way too quicly like they are in the studio room reading off the paper and whoever is faster wins. Good voice acting though I like the emotion put into it. Yeah thats all I have so far so my rant ends here. I have more when I think of it ill respond. Thanks for reading. 6.5/10
