Wow. I know a lot of people seem to be complaining, but I am just blown away by this game, I love it.
I did a mission last night (potential spoiler, continue at your own risk) where Trevor and Franklin rolled with Lamar for a drug deal. Of course, it went south and a huge gunfight erupted. Switching between Trevor and Franklin, I made our way up the street, blowing up gang members cars and dropping them in the street.
When I finally whittled down the bad guys and it looked over, the cops showed up, and a whole new gunfight erupted. As night fell, we ran down into the canal area and stole some group's Jetskis, and ran from the cops. We split up (I was Franklin) and made my way ashore. I ended up stealing one of the cop cars and a huge chase ensued all over the freaking city. At one point, I literally drove off an elevated freeway in an attempt to get away, but to no avail, as cop cars plummeted down after me! It was awesome.
I continued to evade but just could not get away. I had a 3-star Wanted level and they were pursuing me with menace. I wasn't paying attention to where I was driving, and the next thing I knew, I was on the freakin' airport tarmac!! With cops in tow, I used Franklin's Special Ability to stretch my lead a bit, then stole a small Lear Jet. I got it up in the air, but took some damage from the cops shooting at me.
As I flew north, my severely damaged plane was dipping and rocking and smoking - I knew I couldn't keep it up in the air long. I turned East and headed to the ocean, and was *just* able to make it there as I was going down. I wrestled with it as best I could and made an artful soft crash landing. As the plane sunk beneath the waves, I was struck by the beauty of the underwater scene, it was incredible. Then I realized, this is DEEP!!! I swam free and went up as fast as I could, and just broke the surface before I ran out of air. As I sat there bobbing in the waves, my 3-star wanted level went away, and the Sun started to rise.
It was freaking epic. One of my all-time great gaming memories.
