First of all i remember the feeling of GTA IV multiplayer playing that first game of cops n crooks blown away, a whole city to roam in and hunt down the opposite team, that game type pretty much made GTA IV last years to me, hiding the boss in buildings, the strategy's people would come up with, Cops n crooks is pretty much the best and most fun gametype of any game. besides that IV had a few fun and creative gametypes chopper vs chopper, turf war etc. i can honestly say i had no complaints about the multiplayer.
Now onto GTA online.
Leaving aside the performance issues of the first few days and glitches, GTA online is terrible. everything is based on them wanting you to buy a cash card. wanna mess around in free roam? if a random kills you -2000$ wanna do anything without getting a wanted level? if you enjoy spending 5-10 minutes hiding in alleyways waiting for your wanted level to go down GTA online is for you. the bad sport thing is terrible. yea i would love to buy a tank for over a million so i can pretty much get put in a bad sport lobby right away for blowing up others cars, if i die in game instead of my car staying where i respawn 2 feet away i would love to break it out of the car lockup EVERY time then escape a three star wanted level, what where R* thinking? gametypes, they slap in boring old DM and TDM and expect people to be happy. with disappearing player blips on the radar so it pretty much takes no skill just hide and shoot players in the back of the head. and the lobby system is trash. every gametype lobby is literally empty all times of the day you have to sit there and invite people hoping they join, unlike GTA IV where it was an instant lobby of players. so they even f*cked up the lobby system. now onto the missions. same repetitive BS every time go here get that, and the AI with there 100% accuracy its clear they obviously catered towards auto aim players. 500 missions my arse. and hows that replay button glitch? rockstar just flat out lied because they would rather people buy cash cards than replay missions and get money. overall this game has no creativity. no great gametype like cops n crooks. nothing that would keep players on for years or even months. i'm bored of this game already. as for the DLC i would love to create my own death matches, i'm sure people will join even know its nearly impossible to find people in regular death match's right now. -.- anyway if i wanna play a good multiplayer game ill go play GTA IV's multiplayer, GTA online is the biggest failure ever.
