Editorial: The disappointment of GTA V

With Grand Theft Auto V’s release behind it, Marcus Mac Dhonnagáin reflects on why he wasn’t enamored with it (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

I liked gta 5 better then 4 but I do agree 4 story is a little more polished

Only disappointment was mp - how it was and is handled. The entire dunce cap bs destroyed the game online. If you want co-op rainbow happiness - design your game for it!

Micro-steering is also so obvious and game breaking it sucks all desire to play it.

The lazy ending was a massive F* you to fans. What a joke.

Felt a little rushed, and the whole "kill Michael" or "kill Trevor" option had no polished necessity, personally. Ending C ("Death wish") felt satisfying as an ending, and was a long mission count (about 30 minutes long).

I do wish the ending was more dramatic, like GTA IV's was. And the game didn't focus on one predominant villain like Officer Tenpenny from San Andreas, or Dimitri Rascolav from GTA IV, instead, we get Steve Haines and Devon Weston, whom didn't foster much character villain development in the first place.

Unfortunately, I have to disagree. The Multiplayer was the only thing significantly wrong. Otherwise, I'm glad the police can be evaded SO MUCH easier in Single Player.

GTA IV however has the best online so far, if you get around the incessant tyranny of modders spawning buildings over your player-character...

Ah, another archetypal useless post. What's the need for an article bashing GTA V. Is it rebellious to whoever wrote this, and does that person attain self-pride like that? Then that's pathetic.

It's always on this site too, N4G, "News 4 Gamers", not "Useless Posts 4 Gamers".

I bet if GTA V was Sony/PS3 exclusive, everyone on this site would praise it more. Lets not forget a lot of N4G users are Sony riders.

What nonsense. You clearly don't value any kind of criticism.

There's a reason critics are called critics, and they've been around for an incredibly long time.

It's a shame to see someone be so cynical, especially when it's rather positive on the GTA franchise as a whole but merely has some qualms with how V was written.
