After reading some other reviews I agree with the wanted level on a 2 star the AI cops chase relentlessly smashing and cornering your car. This should be reserved for a 4-5. Playing story mode is frustrating at times you are just minding your own business when it starts a cut scene that you cannot stop. The Yoga mission is one such. You should be able to stop or cancel. I am most frustrated by the flight controls especially in on line playing with friends. Air races I will slam into the ground continuously and get a DNF Parachutes are bad too I never finish. Luckly the friends that I play with all all gamer geezer buddies who do not laugh too much at my mistakes. The open sandbox world is amazing, no wonder the game has to be loaded to your HDD
I have to say I respect all the work that Rockstar put into this game. If you bought this game you shouldn't feel cheated at all for your money. The problem I have however is that they don't push the limits of the sandbox genre of games.
For example My fave sandbox game Red Faction Guerrillas. I haven't played a sandbox like it. Not only can you enter all the buildings you can knock them all down. Which made for incredibly gameplay. If not for the weak story of Red Faction it would have been a premier game.
Pro of GTA 5:
1.The map is massive and beautiful
2.The characters are awesome
3.Story is good
1.You can't enter buildings- This wrecks the illusion of being in an open world. Running from cops seems pointless when there is nowhere to go. And because you can't buy more safe houses it really just takes away from the experience.
2. Alot of glitches- glitches everywhere!
3. Helicopter controls are awful!
4. Stealth kills still add wanted level- This upset me the most. Even if your gun is silenced,and your wearing a mask,and no one seen you commit the crime your wanted level is raised.
5. You cant set up your own heist- the game adds this cool feature that you can't implicate outside of missions.
Final verdict this game could have been a home run with just a little more attention to details. As the consumer I demand better if you want us to hand over 60 bucks or more for these titles start with a more solid foundation.
