While story mode and online mode are both within the same package of GTA5 GS have reviwed the Online section of the game and gave it a 7/10 while single player mode as everyone know gets a 9/10

The Good
Wonderful variety of missions and activities
Gorgeous, diverse world serves as a backdrop to your adventures
Plenty of opportunity to have memorable adventures with friends
The Bad
Plagued with bugs and performance problems
Most of the early content is bland

Thoughts system wars?

Does that mean the entire game is actually an 8/10 on GS? :o .. some math 7/10+9/10= 16/20.. 16/20= .80 :o

Seems appropriate based on user-feedback. I don't really know if I even want to try it anymore

#3 Posted by n00bkid (4161 posts) -

Will try once they fix some of the major issues.

I've been playing this a lot lately. Cruising around the city and screwing with other people is just fun. Should be even better once heists are added.

My only complaint is that you have to grind to get the good shit.

#5 Edited by Pray_to_me (2834 posts) -

All those years to prepare and it was still broken. Pretty shitty gotta say.

#6 Posted by foxhound_fox (87663 posts) -

The entire game wasn't reviewed. The SP and MP portions were reviewed separately, and scored 9/10 and 7/10 separately.

I'm not sure what people's obsession with averages/aggregating is.

#7 Posted by lundy86_4 (43009 posts) -

I'm waiting until it's fully fixed. Or, at least a little fixed.

#8 Posted by freedomfreak (39162 posts) -

Sounds fair. It's very smooth now, but the first week was terrible.

#9 Posted by Joedgabe (5110 posts) -

Thanks for beta testing it for the PC version consolites :)

#10 Posted by Bigboi500 (29328 posts) -

It's really boring tbh.

#11 Posted by anab0lic (271 posts) -

Yeah its kinda meh.... i think this will be good for Rockstar though, they will learn alot from the short comings of GTA V's online multiplayer and we will see much better from them in future games........maybe there is potential for some kind of multi player only gta game idk.

#12 Edited by The_Last_Ride (70659 posts) -

Just wait until they have fixed all issues and then play it. I am sure it's going to be a stellar experience then

#13 Posted by The_Rick_14 (9937 posts) -

My biggest complaint is that there aren't enough things to do solo in the world. Most of the jobs require two players even if they could easily be done by one person.

#14 Posted by Sushiglutton (5225 posts) -

Playing with friends is fun. Playing solo with random people or vs people is pure garbage. To call the early content generic is an understatment. It's like: go to point A, kill a group of enemies, pick up a package, go to point B.

#15 Posted by freedomfreak (39162 posts) -

And yeah, play with friends.

If you're not playing with friends, you're legitimately doing it wrong.

Agreed. Preferably with 3+ friends.

#17 Posted by Pittfan666 (8532 posts) -

Can't finish the single player due to issues with freezing in the main story so chances are I'll never get around to trying the online mode that seems like an even bigger headache.

Losing what? Shitty RTS games? LMAO, do one.

#22 Posted by siLVURcross (26103 posts) -

Online is pretty solid, sure a few hiccups but seems to be stabilizing so far. Good fun with friends that's for sure.

PC factually won 3 gens in a row.

You can cry about how certain AAA and AA games don't count, I would totally do that with racers, yearly sports rehashes, and movie-games....but Its no use.

Accept your defeat like a man. Accept that almost every multiplat is better on PC. Accept inferiority.

lol, superior on PC? Yeah, more crashes, and bugs. Get over it... Consoles rule.

#25 Posted by princeofshapeir (13758 posts) -

Probably well-deserved considering it was a shitfest for a week plus. Thankfully the single-player is the major attraction and what I'm still playing.

#26 Posted by ManInFlames-77 (291 posts) -

lol finalstar still sore over the trashing Animal Mother gave him

Why aren't you using your regular account, AM?

#28 Posted by Jankarcop (8976 posts) -

lmao 7/10, losers

#29 Posted by Netret0120 (2032 posts) -

Will the review change because R* will constantly be adding new stuff to it and eventually get it right?

#30 Edited by kipsta77 (939 posts) -

1. All issues aren't fixed yet.

2. Still heaps of content to come.

Impossible to give it a final verdict this early. But it is so fun!

#31 Posted by DocSanchez (1564 posts) -

I have to say I'm having a blast with it.

#32 Posted by x-2tha-z (8896 posts) -

I tried it last night for the first time. I played without any problems for about half an hour, then I got kicked from XBL. Not sure if it was the game or my internet connection. Might try it later and see if it happens again. I liked what I managed to play, though.

I agree, this is by far the best game Rockstar has made as of this moment.

Vice City still has the better story, but everything from the world to the characters goes in favor of GTA V. This is basically the sequel to San Andreas that i always wanted.

God, Trevor and Michael were so well written and memorable. I liked Franklin aswell, but that chemistry between Trevor and Michael is priceless.

And that C choice song that pops up at the end? Right in my playlist, listening to it right now.

If that mean getting more games i like to play and get multiplats much earlier im glad my platform of choice "losing" to PC.

#35 Posted by ShepardCommandr (2409 posts) -

It sucks.

GTA should be strictly an sp game.

He's so easy to set off Hahahaha

So sp+mp = 8/10

hyped for 10/10 and gets 8/10 = HUGE FLOP!!!

#38 Posted by drinkerofjuice (3169 posts) -

As someone who usually prefers playing single player, GTA Online is the superior component. Also, I can't really say I've dealt with any bugs or performance issues over the past week or so.

They shouldnt have reviewed the multiplayer portion separately because now the whole package is 8/10 on GS

I can't really see why anyone would care at this point, to be honest. For example, i played the game, finished the story, it's a 10/10 as far as i'm concerned and it's the best GTA game to date.

It means getting less games and getting the worst version of multiplats. Oh and you sure got crysis, witcher2, and diablo3 earlier.

#42 Posted by foxhound_fox (87663 posts) -

Link to MP hype thread?

Under the new GS review method, the metagame, and scores, have become largely irrelevant. But keep trying finalstar.

#43 Posted by aroxx_ab (9272 posts) -

I cant even play because this shit crash every time i start Online so 1/10

#44 Edited by toast_burner (21428 posts) -

How does the addition of more content make it worse?

SW is full of some of the most stupid people on the internet. Even simple numbers confuse them.

#45 Posted by TheEroica (13306 posts) -

@Blabadon: meh, this online will have legs... it's worth investing in. They seem pretty focused on supporting the game with consistent content and the possibilities are just to good to deny. They just need to make the damn thing inviting... right now its a roll of the dice as the whether you're gonna even get a session going.

Its pretty simple not rocket science, online is part of the full game.. the game is shipped with both single player and online mode so if it gets reviewed in two parts then the entire package is an 8/10.

whether its an 8, 9 or 10 GTA5 is a good game that is being enjoyed by a lot of people, not trying anything here :/

Why is online part of the full game? It shipped with the singleplayer, and the multiplayer was unlocked weeks later. Gamespot reviewed them as separate pieces, so we consider them as separate pieces for what metagame is left.

And you calling it a "flop" would suggest to me you are trying something.

#48 Posted by chessmaster1989 (29103 posts) -

GTA V didn't even deserve the 9. No real interest in the online.

Nope wasnt trying anything i only added "flop?" hoping for some interesting discussion but in the end people would just come in and talk about the TC like what you did there so changed it again as there was no point.

Again GTA5 is an excellent game and seeing what they were able to do with current gen systems imagine what they can do with next gen technology when they start working on GTA6

#50 Posted by chessmaster1989 (29103 posts) -

Also SP and MP should always be evaluated separately as they have no bearing on the quality of the other.
