2657canes is an unknown quantity at this point
I finished it tonight. It seems shorter than TLAD for some reason, maybe because I blasted through it, but whatever.

I really liked the characters in this one, a LOT more than the dirtbag bikers, but I also feel that the writers dropped the ball in this one in some places as there are quite a few loose ends and extraneous crap. I also think that the final mission of TBOGT may be the most anticlimactic one in history. It doesnt feel like a game ender. During the final cutscene, I kept waiting to be attacked.

Yusuf is f'in awesome.

Before the last quarter of the game, I was leaning towards this being stronger than TLAD, but now that its over, I cant say that. The chopper missions get annoying + there are wayyy too many loose ends IMO.

I loved it. To me it brought back more of the classic crazyness GTA's had previously. The missions are intense in this one with the new additions.

Played it. Finished it. Liked it.

Compared to Niko and Johnny I liked Niko best, but Johnny and Luis have interesting personalities.
The game does seem a bit short though - but that's just because after the story missions, there aren't that much quality things to do left in the game.

I'd like to see more variation. Not that there isn't any variation in BOGT. There's a lot. Just more, really. Go bonkers with it.

I liked it. However, it felt very short, even shorter than TLAD. The story could have been a bit better and there could have been more character development with Luis. The ending did not feel intense enough.

I just finished it, and I have to say that I really liked it. I think the DLCs were tests as to what could be done with the new platforms and engine. Which can only mean that the next release is going to be great.

It was great. I think most people are going to disagree with me, but the Buzzard has to be one of the best GTA vehicles ever. So agile and shit.

Last night I went into a club and won 2 champagne drink offs and then went downstairs and had a couple shots. After the second shot, Luis started throwing up and passed out, with a prompt telling me I had drank too much. The screen faded to black and I ended up laying down in some dumpster in the middle of Star Junction. Has anyone else experienced this? I don't know if it was in the original game, but it's a great touch.

marcus129 can only hope to improve
I think it's a great game. Only downside really is that you can't ask girls out on dates and you only have two friends. I think they should have upgraded the physics a bit in the multiplayer becuase i often get killed when I'm going about 10 MPH on a bike and fall off then loose half my health,also the the bullet recognition in multiplyer NEEDs to be upgraded big time...it takes ages for a bullet to register and even then if your running and your target is dead on,you often find that you bullets dissappear...this also happens wioth the Buzzard's Missiles sometimes.

But apart from that it's an exelent game...i like the Club Management most of all i think. It's the little things that made this game for me.

Choppers as in Bikes? If so that's TLAD not TBOGT.
