Well, it's fair to say that Grand Theft Auto Online hasn't been the smoothest online launch in history. Frankly it was borderline disastrous.
Perfect Score? Or will the horrible iffy launch lower the score? Kind of think it should to be honest, you can't give it a perfect score like the single player when it has flaws or had flaws
It's GTA people will say "had flaws BUT when your lucky to get in its fun!". Imagine how the reviews would have came out if the online was available since day one.
Yeah, no way this Online portion should receive a 10/10 because of the magnitude of the flaws upon launch. A couple problems for a big title? Okay, most will accept it, but this is getting ridiculous. And this grandparent thing that creates your character was a horrible waste of my time. They clearly wanted to go for something different, but this is silly. Oh well..maybe in a couple more days I will enjoy it, but for now I will just go back to the 10/10 Singleplayer :)
"you can't give it a perfect score like the single player when it has flaws" The single player stuff has flaws also.
But I can PLAY the single player
I agree. The person I quoted was implying the single player mode is flawless and deserves a perfect score, but it's not and it doesn't.
They actually aren't going to give it a # score. They are just going to give their opinion on it. At least that is what they stated in this video: http://www.ign.com/videos/2...
8/10 would be the perfect score if they get it up and running 100 percent next week
What's the problem? CAN'T GET ON!?
Didn't go "smoothly"? One of the worst mp launches period. It is now then second day and me and my friends still can't get online. I can go up to the race but then session never starts. 2 weeks extra to get things in order and more than a billion dollars and Rockstar can't get the best servers for rt heir game? Embarrassing and ridiculous. These bozos don't get no free pass from me. Read dead mp and max Payne mp was make anyway.
I still haven't managed to get on at all. I knwo that perhaps if I try solo I might but what is the point in that. I'm away this weekend so hopefully when I get back it will be fixed to an extent. This is worse than the Rome 2 launch although at least R* got the singleplayer right I guess.
I didn't try to get online yet because I was too busy trying to fix bf4 beta on the pc. But I bet I would of had a sucessful time messing with gta 5 online then bf4 beta. The bf4 beta is so bad right now I might get cataracts from all the video graphic changing. In the end its a beta and they better fix this or I'm not buying this game
I'm running it on a laptop. 780m on ultra gives me 40-60fps with beta drivers. SLI setups are not factored in yet etc. It's a beta. When it runs smooth it runs amazing and is what bf3 SHOULD have been. It's definitely a major improvement. Guns feel deadly etc. Check your drivers. It wouldn't launch for me until I installed beta drivers Console owners don't be all "that's why PC gaming sucks" video cards are vast on PC and atleast the companies make test drivers to try out for BETTER PERFORMANCE before the game even launches. Either way I'm enjoying it very much. I was iffy but it seems to run great and play better than BC2
Disappoint this has been. It sucks when you have friends playing online and you still can't get on. Never expected it to be this bad.
The online issues should have no bearing on the actual review. GTA Online was advertised as a separate entity having nothing to do with single player.
No one told R* to add multiplayer. What baffles me is that how wasn't none of this expected? I'm no analyst but it's common sense. If it's with the game then the WHOLE game should be judged not just a portion. You don't see COD just being judge on multiplayer.
@Mac I disagree. It's all part of the GTAV I paid for. You can't just buy the single player portion, or just buy the online portion. My trophy list concurs, with all the MP trophies i now know I'll never get. It's a flawed MP, tech issues notwithstanding. The amount of $$$ you lose for dieing in free roam/missions/survival is horrendous. You even lose banked bucks. Almost seems like a ploy for the microtransactions. They shouldn't get a free pass.
I've never seen in my 30yrs of gaming a launch so poorly executed. Its insulting to fans and ludicrous with the sheer money made, that this online was allowed to launch.
Rockstar should have given Bungie a call for lessons on how to do an online game right. I have never had problems with any Bungie game at launch.
Can I resell property after I purchased it? Please tell me I dont want to buy property if I cant sell it
I finally got on about an hour ago. Had about six people running around. My heart was pumping so freakin hard! A guy rode up on a bicycle and shot me. Minutes later I found him a in a clothing store. So hugged against the wall around the corner.... I clocked my wait at about fifteen minutes... He waltzed out and got two shots in the back of the noggin. I had even shot out the tires to his car in case he got away. After I killed him I promptly deposited his one hundred dollars, then promptly quit. ^_^
I read this in Walter whites voice
I couldn't just roll over. Nobody messes with a blowfish...
Am i the only one still stuck at the intro of gta online? Ive been stuck at waiting for other players. I have yet been able to join any online -_-
Nope I'm there with you... launching session... The only times I was able to play were twice in solo mode when it glitched, skipped the race, and made me spawn in random places. I could roam around and do stuff but my progress wasn't saved either time.
I've given up with GTA Online. I won't touch it for another few weeks. I keep losing my character and I keep getting stuck at the first race. I managed to complete the race and do the first mission a couple of times, but today it's gone back to being unplayable. Besides, Beyond comes out next week and the BF4 open beta is out tomorrow so those will keep me occupied until Rockstar sorts this mess out.
My online experience has been nothing short of horrible. Lost morning I won't get back. I'd seriously dock a review point for this. Horrible charachter creation based on tiny grandparent pics, weird +/- stat point assigning system. Musta watched the intro 5 times as it wouldn't load my skin, plus unskippable cutscenes. Was joining empty maps, no one was doing co-op, a flawed money system when you die (where are the ATMs for deposits?), then it deleted my charachter profile entirely when I re-started!!! Lost ALL progress. Froze again. They were overambitious. Load screens boast all this micromanagement, but I'll never see it. Moving on to Beyond: Two Souls after I finish the campaign in GTA. Time waits for no one.
