I agree with the OP..

 

Has anyone noticed that there are NO roaming police, unless in pursuit of someone else?

I see no patrolling squad cars unless near the police station, and even then they're stationary.

 

Kinda bumming me out, these police got that Sam Fisher gear.

I still don't get this complaint. I see plenty of patrolling cops, a realistic number that is. In their cars, I mean. I've seen SOME walking around. Very sparse. But they do patrol.

 

I love this game, but I MASSIVELY agree with this complaint. Hell, I can't even quietly punch someone off the mountain without a damn wanted level. COME ON.

 

Lol seriously im actually curious of what the programming looked like for it.

 

IF player damage civilian THEN any officers within 20 mile radius make player wanted

 

Lol some srs programming sh*t up in here!

 

Btw does the game get more insane? Im at mission 19/69. like do the mission length increase and the story picks up abit more? Not complaining but so far the story is abit childish / fun / chaotic. Does the story get more serious later?

It gets a little bit mature but nothing like what you might think it is.

 

I rate the story ( NOT MISSIONS ) a 7/10. It could of been a lot better if you ask me.

cameras are everywhere these days mate.

 

 

If cameras/magic police are everywhere and that's how they see your foul deeds on top of a mountain or in any other hiding place, then how come we can eventually lose the cops? It's a PARADOX!

You got a while to you complete the game. The game gets a bit better near the end when Michael and Trevor have a conflict.

 

You just meet Michael from Trevor's view?

 

You have

5

heists left.

For f*ck sake this is the main problem I am beginning to have with the game and tbh its only (I wouldnt say game breaking) insanely irritating flaw, I shoot a hiker WITH A SILENCED f*ckING WEAPON ontop of Mount Chilliad (where the trail is) and BOOM f*cking wanted and cops start driving up the mountain? Wtf is this BS? I kill people in the desert and BOOM wanted? f*ck that it is beginning to annoy the sh*t out of me and imo ruined GTA IV and I was hoping they would fix it with this one but nope. Also its annoying how the cops just spawn infront of you when your wanted,,,,

 

I agree to some extent. I think the way they chase you and what not is fine, I don't have a problem getting away from 3 stars in downtown LS. but it takes way too long to get rid of the *blinking* wanted stars, that's annoying at times.

That's not the worst part. I actually got a wanted level while buying the hen house as trevor because some woman thought I looked a bit weird. Seriously, rockstar? That's justification now? It also happens when any of my aircraft I bail out of crash, which is fine if they don't magically f*cking know I did it.

 

And then there's the spawning. The god damn spawning. Every single f*cking time I'm about to get away, some f*cking cop spawns ahead of me two streets away. Often, they spawn in a pattern that completely surrounds me so I can't get away and have to get out of sight again, not that that matters because they simply spawn again.

 

Is the dispatcher using both psychic powers and a god damn star trek transporter? I'm glad rockstar didn't go in an entirely realistic direction, but in some cases, it is actually nicer, guys.

You ever deal with a d-pad that often interprets one d-pad button as two and summons up the phone in the middle of cheats just to ruin them?

Yeah, the cops are very annoying. I had 5 cops all over me at only 2 star wanted level. There were 3 behind me and another 2 magically mirroring my direction from the front. It was on a dirt bike and had to do some crazy offroad. That is certainly overkill.

 

It would make sense at 3 or 4 level, but not at 2 star.

 

Mostly I use the Dewbauchee Rapid GT if I am going to rob a store. Give it a go. The car can blow the cops away in a straight line. Changing vehicles seems to be the next best way that I have found.

You also get stars for doing anything now. And even if it's 1 star it takes like a minute for it to go away.

No, they're not. They just magically spawn in right the f*ck ahead of you whenever you're about to get away. It's worse than it was in IV. Sure, they use line of sight now, but they suck at actually chasing.

I've only been arrested once and killed by the police a few times. I think the "we know where you are at all times" system sucks though.

Yeah, I thought that being outside the line of sight meant they couldn't see me. Guess I thought wrong. Maybe they used their scouters to sense my power level.

You got the complaint quite much, actually.

Let me have your game, then. I literally have a ghost town when it comes to police until I do something, or I see someone running from the pigs in a pursuit.

 

Also,

 

I find it funny we can get police called on us for standing around peds,

but no police are called when I shoot the would-be robbers for taking store money, and keeping it for myself...............

 

 

I have a fun time getting away from the police with the new system, it just needs some work. I f*cks with you R* but yo 5-0 is somey-timey as hell. I'd take the density of the police presence from GTA IV and the AI from V and be happy (in my case)

what is the liklihood that R* is going to fix the police to make them less superhuman? I feel like there are some real flaws like many people have been pointing out, that could be easily fixed.

you're stupid as hell.. the cops dont f*cking spawn in front of you it took a minute for them to get to me in the desert.. One of the amazing things about gta v is that evading the police is like a minigame on its own. When I get a wanted star I run out of the "crime scene" area so the stars blink. Then you can see all the cops/cop cars marked on your mini map and their line of vision.. Its so fun trying to evade them, its like playing a minigame in the minimap trying to evade the cops by checking which roads are open etc, then hiding in a building or behind bushes etc...

I agree with the OP, the cops can be quite annoying.

You shoot someone with a silenced pistol, or blow a plane with a sticky bomb from a distance, and the cops somehow know that You are the one who did it.

The line of sight is nice and all, but the cops need to lose their Omniscience, especially when there are no witnesses in the area.

 

Also a health upgrade system like in GTA IV would be nice, I'm rather sick of the fact that you can die quickly.

Technically everything you see in game spawns in front of you.

You can really see the police working their detective senses by hiding in the subway system, preferrably in a point where a street goes right above you. Somehow a few police cruisers decide to dismount exactly on top of you to investigate the area every single time. Another great example of Los Santos's finest is their amazing capability to analyze forensic evidence with such effect they can retrace the steps of a perp who has killed a low level gang banger in the ghetto, in the middle of the night AND dispatch 3-5 squad cars for active search AND somehow always end up in the same general area where the suspect is hiding even after he has driven to other part of the city. They also have some superhuman level capabilities of reading people, since they can spot the suspect from a group of males with same age, skin color, build and type of clothing and give chase only to this one suspect. There is no need to question everyone and there will be no wrong turns or searching from wrong area when detective Dick McSuperman is on the f*cking case.

Oh, what if you have hit someone or done some other minor crime and want to just f*cking surrender because you have so much money you just rather pay a few grand instead of a 15 minute Michael Bay-chase that spans from Vinewood to Paleto Bay? Tough sh*t, for some reason you can't surrender anymore like in IV. At least I Couldn't, for me the police just stood there aiming at me for a few seconds before opening fire. Because I punched someone.

There are no police officers in Los Santos. I know they are f*cking T-800's. That is the only explanation for their capabilities and the intensity of their actions.

That's where they spawn out of nowhere though, in LOS refind the suspect mode. Nearly every time, a cop appears right on the road I'm driving on several paces ahead so I have to keep making big turns everywhere because the dispatcher is a witch.

Another thing that they downgraded for V. They could've at least used the witness system from RDR, but no. What's the point of the stealth skill outside of missions if the cops always know where you are when you shoot someone, even if you're hiding with a silenced sniper?

 

Then theres' this bullsh*t: if I'm driving through LS and I simply bump into someone with my car, I get a wanted level STRAIGHT AWAY. Seriously. Literally less than 1 second for me to get a wanted, even if there's no cops around, and no witnesses around. Try it yourself. Even in IV you could hit at least 5 people with your car before you got a wanted.
