So I beat this game yesterday. Is the only way to get a fighter jet by breakin into the military base and stealing one? Pretty disappointed you can buy tanks and army helicopters for private use, but not a jet. Speaking of helicopters, they feel like they handle wayyyyy worse than in GTA 4.
As far as story goes: SPOILER ALERT!
Did anyone pick anything other than "deathwish" on last mission? Seems pretty stupid to kill either of the other 2 and I can't see what benefit there would have been doing that. I was glad to see whoever tried to spoil the game by posting that Trevor kills Franklin was wrong.
Overall, I felt the single player campaign was really short compared to even GTA 4. Not sure if there is any point in playing after the story is over, or if it will have any effect on GTA online, but there is still a lot of stuff to collect I suppose.
I always go back to a GTA game after finishing the story to just mess around, play with the physics, etc. I played GTASA waaaay more than I did GTA4 tho. Would you guys say this one is as good as GTASA? Or at least way better than GTA4 was?
Hmm. Overall I would probably rate San Andreas better as I think it has way more content than GTA 5. GTA 5 doesn't really have a main antagonist, the story I think is much shorter, the music is kinda bleh, I believe there is more variety in vehicles in San Andreas and you can't even hijack the trains in GTA 5. Also the airplane speed in this game seems really slow for some reason.
Overall GTA 5 will probably end up superior for me just because of the online aspect that they seem to be putting most of their effort towards, but from a single player perspective - I don't think its as good as San Andreas. I would say San Andreas's world is probably bigger as well but I'm not sure if you count GTA 5's total area where you can swim underwater which doesn't really interest me.
The fact you lose so much money and ammo when you die because they want to sell fake money for real money kills a lot of the enjoyment for me. It's like, you want to make a lot of money so you can buy stuff, but that means you can't have any fun because dying ruins your entire progress. I lost over 15K of money last night just because of the same guy with an assault rifle shooting me over and over. Doesn't help the game spawns you right back where you died without any option to choose a different spot.
It's fun sure, but I feel hesitant to do anything I could do in the older games because I wll probably die. This should be a free for all run and gun game, but really it ends up being a play by yourself and don't piss off the cops or any of the NPCs because your ass will be grass and you will be wasting your time.
The emphasis they keep putting on trying to force you into buying fake money with real money completely ruins my motivation to play this game online. I don't think I've played in like a week or more? Doesn't matter really anyways, because everyday I see people have more problems with the servers with either not be able to connect or still losing save progress. I was way too overhyped for the online part I guess.
