I really liked this game for what it has to offer and all of the new items, weapons, customization, skills, and missions it has. Although I give it a 6 for one small, yet big problem. If you buy or rent this you will not be able to play online, they did a patch where you will automatically get lost connection to the host, so it's very rare you will play with psn friends, or just anybody in normal you might aswell play offline or payday: the heist. You have been warned.
First up, the main menu was baffling, there was no choice for "new game", "play game" or "join game" or anything. I don't play multiplayer games so maybe this is normal. Eventually I figured out you need to "Log In" to some kind of network, But I didn't know if this was the real online network, or just part of the game.
Then you spend 30 minutes getting familiar with your safe house. Are these graphics, design and controls really this horrible, or is it just me?
Finally, I figure out how to choose a mission and go, I chose what seemed like the easiest mission to get me started. Go to a mall and smash up the place. Do $50k of damage and leave. I went in. Wow, the graphics, design and lighting are truly horrid! I start shooting up the place, windows, cash registers, display cases, equipment, nothing... no "damage" yet. Um... Ok. It seems that you have to shoot specific things to do damage. So I found a CAR and emptied all my clips into it. Nothing... no "damage" registered. Finally I figure out I have to snipe wine bottles one by one while the swat team is swarming you. Ugh... this sucks.
