Hello everyone, today the unexpected happened to me. Woke up this morning, went downstairs to grab some breakfast and what I saw... felt like christmas. The brown packaging, with amazon written on the bottom, size of a cd case was on the floor infront of the door. I slowly unwrapped it, and to my surprise it was GTA V from amazon. 3 DAYS EARLY!
Forget breakfast, I went straight up to my room popped the disc and waiting for about 15 mins for the installation. I tell you this 15 minutes felt like an hour.
Now I had read a lot of negative topics here regarding textures, driving, and other junk. After playing for 2 hours, i can assure you all this is the best game that I have ever played in my life.
First of all, the driving. It is is no way arcadey, in fact it is better way better than GTA IV. Of course handling differs between vehicles but I tell you it is a beauty. The city, holy mother of god, is hugeeeeeeeeeee, the map leak just didn't do it justice. Its vibrant, living breathing city will just speak for itself when u play it. The AI is also amazing. Regarding the textures, the city is beautiful but the textures around the mountain area aren't the best, or bad like it is portrayed in some threads but you wont even notice this when you are playing.
The intro is also very fitting, sets up straight up for the game and paves the path for a good story line, of course as of now I am just driving around and taking everything in.
Finally, like some of you people, reading those negative threads made me worried, it felt like I was going to be disappointed. But when you play the actual game yourself, trust me you will be blown away. This just makes me more excited for GTA online, now that is also gonna be another step up.
Well thats all for now, I had to release the excitement I had inside.
