I'm going back and trying to play it but find the same things wrong with it that i did before. The open world itself is great to look at but there is nothing to do outside of the main story. I just do the main story missions and move on which kind of ruins the aspect of free roam and doing things outside of the main story. At least in assassin's creed i feel like i want to do the extra content because there are rewards for doing so. The game is funny but the characters are unlikeable imo. Outside of shooting someone in the face and starting a ridiculous police chase there isn't much to do.
Kind of disapointing is all when this game gets 10's everywhere and is heralded as the greatest game ever made. I don't find it that fun or addictive for whatever reason.
I really like open world games too, and have grown tired of the same old linear games and 1st person shooters. Seems like there would be so much developers could do with an open world but it's just not here?
Fallout and Skyrim are too rpg and just too much to do imo. AC at least has some puzzle solving and collection of items that get you better armor and equipment and a decent story.
Should i just give up on GTA and play Assassin's creed? Disapointing because i like the driving aspect of GTA and the modern game. Mafia 2 was no better and had even less to do then GTA. Sleeping dogs was better i thought but wasn't without it's flaws either. They are all overhyped and not that great.
