First off online is very different than any other rockstar game made. Finally you can fully customize your character. There's a lot of shirts, pants, faces, hair style, head gear, shoes, armour and lots more. It even gets better, most of the gear have special upgrades. There's so many upgrades I can't really remember them. One that I do know is if you have a helmet on head damage is reduced by 50%.
You can also customize your weapon load out. Lots of guns and grenades. Can also add attachments like silencers, scopes, extended mags, gas systems, and a few more.
A few flaws are I don't like how you run, it's just strange.
Also guns are very inconsistent. It can take 3 shots one time, 10 shots another, a whole clip another to kill someone.
Melee is clunky.when your within 10 feet from someone you push Y and it's a instant kill.
I'm not a fan of bullet time. Shouldn't be in multiplayer. It's not as bad as dead eye in red dead but close.
Also pistols are very over powered. Iv been killed by the worst pistol in the game from across the map in 1-3 shots.
There's also a lot of spawn killing. If you play gang wars you will be spawn killed for half your deaths. They just spawn you in a fire fight.
Not a lot of maps. I think around 5.
The graphics are great, but not much better than gta4 which is 4years old. A lot more detail tho.
If you want a good 3rd person shooter with online and a deep campaign mode give this a try but people who loved gta4 and reddead may be very disappointed.
