Fair criticism of gta5 tbh
was quite excited to play it but in the first two hours i found the experience slightly frustrating. Ive had missions fail to trigger the hud/gps to show the route to the next location... ive found the contextual controls quite unresponsive (5 attempts to open a garage door because i wasnt in quite the right position)..and the third person view is still a pain with the characters running in arcs to get round obstacles and generally its still pretty buggy feeling ('oh you want me to take cover behind THAT crate... not any of these other perfectly safe hiding places)
basically its an 'arcade' version of gta using the hud from rdr and the shooting mechanics from max payne 3. Ive yet to see anything to convince me this gta is more less linear during missions. Compared to a recent 'open world' title like far cry 3 its a disappointment.
Even the 'adult' strip club sections are pretty tame...amounting to a 'press O to touch the semi naked stripper... if you do it when the bouncer is visible he will throw you out.
