Another Disappointment Thread

Don't get me wrong, I love this game. But like any game it's got it's flaws, and lets face it, GTA is always a little bit overhyped. I figure this thread will prevent any further, since noone likes to see them, which means this will probably fail miserably.

My biggest beef is just with the missions. It seems like all it is is "go kill that guy, go kill this guy." That and the fact that none of the elevators work in MP so you have to climb all those damn stairs.

well what else do you do in the criminal underworld (in a real one similar to GTA IV's) ? hijack an airliner and fly it to another city to assassinate someone?

I really wish you could take pics on your camera and save them, and it would be cool to upload them to the internet like Halo or Forza.

I wouldn't say disappointed, I had some issues with the game myself most notably the absence of classic GTA weapons such as the chainsaw, mini-gun and the flamethrower. The mission structure mid-game was irratating as well, chase missions are fine in small doses but in my opinion they were greatly overdone in IV.

I still think it is the best game I've played this decade though.

There are flaws, sure, nothing major though. Let's see how expansion packs/DLC impacts on the game. Hopefully in a positive way. :p
I wonder if they're going to do like they did previously, GTA3->Vice City->San Andreas, or if they just keep building on this one for quite some time..

I really wanted this game to be offline multiplayer, so that I can play with a friend on the same console and not have to ask him to go home and turn his ps3 on every time we want to play the game together

Basically Rockstar have a new template to work on and now they have endless possibilities. They just need stay friends with NaturalMotion and this beautiful Euphoria engine.

I'm just happy I haven't had any glitches or problems people have been complaining about. I do get frustrated at the missions ... but who doesn't just love the feeling that one gets when they pass a mission?

This is the best game I've played in this generation, and maybe halfway through last generation.

Profound logic, I come in to flame him due to me not caring what so ever about his opinion and his need to post it.

I just simply love how people bash others who speak their mind.
Deep inside we ALL know GTA 4 misses something.
But on the other hand it's so much better than the other GTA's as well.

It's a great game, probably one of the best around (for now).
But it doesn't deserv all the 10/10 scores.
Because there ARE some minor mistakes/let downs.

And no I'm not talking bout the driving cause I absolutely love the driving (although it spins a bit to fast)!
It's really repetive, even more than older gta's BUT the fact HOW they are repetive makes things fantastic.
Just look at the bank heist.
It's just another go steal that money mission.
But HOW it's set up is great!

Alot of the dissapointments are because of the hype.
Lots of things were left out.

There are extremist in both ways.
Some bash the game constantly, and some praise it like it's their god.
In my honestly opinion people should find the golden way.
Which means: Love the game to it's extent but don't deny the few mistakes/let downs.

Anyway I'm glad it doesn't live up to the hype, because now there's room for improvement.

CynicalBastard and MrXakaRebel: I would appreciate you respecting the opinions of other forum users. Just because you don't agree with someone's opinion doesn't mean it's less valid. This is a discussion forum as you might have noticed, and if you can't handle other people having different opinions than you or if you can't properly express why you disagree with someone you really have no business here.

The same goes for the rest of you.

It's a game, not a simulator.
