Its good and I have had lots of fun but after awhile it got really repetitive even online and its taking them way to long to release online content that should have been there the day of release. The games been out long enough and were still waiting for heist.
To be honest this game gets old fast. After the initial awe of the gorgeous LA visuals and first few missions you get the gist of what you will be doing the rest of the game. Go here, kill person A, grab loot, leave. You can obviously jack around and just kill cops and create general mayhem but it gets old fast...iit might have been fun when San Andreas came out but this is 2k13.
That's where the online comes in. If im going to be running around shooting at stuff it might as well be at other players and with friends. The one thing I will say is the apartment/vehicle element to online is the ONLY saving grace. I legitimately enjoyed collecting vehicles and customizing them (partially because I used the LSC glitch and had enough to buy the Adder, etc.).
unfortunately online is ridiculously boring when it comes to gameplay, missions, and racing. You know...the actual GAME. You can only run around and gun so many people down and go so many repetitive online missions which involve monotonous tasks like drive here, collect loot, kill ambush. The missions now don't pay all that well considering how boring they are.
Overall this game is pretty overrated. Has great graphics but the gameplay and online mode are supremely boring.
