I feel the same way on most of those points. Things is, races have always been hard in the series so I just don't bother doing them really. I also just unlocked the third character and hate him. I just don't like the dirty, meth using/making/selling crazy type that he is. The first two were cleaner and somewhat normal but now have to play as a near psycho just isn't to my liking. As for cheevos, I care but not as kuch since I love the game for the story and gameplay.I hate the driving mechanics of the game. Some vehicles aren't terrible, but the one race I've failed repeatedly is infuriating. Especially since I get a good car, go to start the race and the car disappears and I have to go find a different car.
Played a fair amount yesterday, unlocked the third main character, and he is definitely the epitome of GTA. Gotta love running a meth lab. Flying the planes was ok, but the thing suffers terribly from the lack of any worth while tutorial. Did I mention I once spent ten minute trying to figure out how to get a car on a tow truck and it never bothered to tell me? The second tow mission they made sure to note how though...
Anyway, just cruising around is fun enough, most missions are kind of fun. Planning out the first jewelry heist and enacting the setup and the job was pretty fun as well. The progression of the game feels slow at times, I think mostly though this is that it doesn't hand achievements out like candy to support my cheevo addiction
Yeah must be me getting older and being a parent now but some of the things in the game kind of make me uneasy and think about it more then in the past. As for the meth, I don't know if you make and sell it. It may just be what his character's story is.Seriously you have to make and sell meth? Bad part is so many young kids play this. Parents should really pay attention to the "M" in a game like this.
Well, I don't know if you actually make meth, as in you don't have to press X,RB,Y,LT or something to make it, but the one guy does own and distribute it and you do have to defend his meth lab at one point. You also run guns to sell to Mexico and so forth. Either way, a lot of the content is definitely something no kid should be seeing or taking part in if you ask me.I'm sure they are trying to just cash in on the Breaking Bad craze.
