Summary: This game is nowhere near as good as the hype it got. The single player story is simply ok. The main heist missions weren't much fun. The story isn't as long as IV and there's very little to do after you finish it. It's also not good enough to want to play again for a while. The online was the most looked to feature but unfortunately the online mode is pretty bad. The leveling system is terrible. Cops are a part of every online session and they ruin the fun.
Excerpt: Got the game for my grandson,luckily he knew how to download the game to a flash drive to play it,it wont play on some game consoles-alot of people dont know this,but he is enjoying playing with the flash drive download.
Cons: Single player is very short. A central point to the game is doing "heists" where you put a crew together to do big jobs. There is a lot of emphasis put on gathering crew members you encounter in the world and building their skills, but ultimately there are only a handful of heists and very few that actually pay the character money. Because most of the story is leading up to the next heist, the game felt very short and anticlimatic. Very little outside the main story w...
Summary: Lacking in detail from past titles. worth part of the game are the bare knuckle, never ending stream of police pursuits that are unavoidable. the cheats are not really cheats. lack of shear effort put forth into the game overall.
Summary: Honestly, the game was fun, graphics and maps really cool, excellent missions, but the online really sucked. I completed the missions on story mode, then traded it in. The online got really repetitious quick, and if you're playing honestly, big money wasn't easy to come by, and the in-game prices were ridiculous. The online experience was marred by wanna-be gangstas just rampaging for the heck of it, and not adding anything to the experience.
Summary: Now before you all thumbs down my review, Im not saying this is a bad game. The game itself was incredible and clearly will introduce the next generation of gaming. The game has an incredible open world to explore with new side quests and activities to do. However, the game was not to my personal liking. I couldn't follow the story because of the characters swapping so constantly. I did enjoy the new car customization and new weapons and more free roam fun.
