GTA Online impressions: Hit-and-miss mayhem, if you can even log in | ARS

ARS: When Grand Theft Auto V launched three weeks ago, its heavily touted online mode was hidden behind a giant “coming soon” sign, like a parent shooing kids away from the kitchen while the cookies are baking. "Go on, leave us alone for two weeks; we're making something. When you come back, we'll have a giant spread of online tomfoolery ready for you."

That didn't work out. GTA Online promised to deliver the storied series' first truly multiplayer experience, letting players form gangs and raise collective street-crime mayhem. Unfortunately, persistent connectivity woes throughout its first week—the very trouble you'd expect to be softened by a two-week delay—have gotten in the way of so much petty online crime.

These connectivity issues are still being worked out over a week later, and they have prevented us from being able to play enough to get a decent feel for the game up until now. When we have been lucky enough to log in, though, we've found that GTA Online is beginning to live up to its name and reveal itself for what it is: a giant crime playland that ignores some of its solo sibling's advances. And it's a terrible place for a lone wolf. (Grand Theft Auto Online, PS3, Xbox 360)
