Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox360 - Page 5

post #121 of 267
Okay is this mostly for the non slim 360s? My slims are not loud with the disc but the install to USB is still beneficial than running from disc on the slims?

Someone would have to test it to be sure, but it'll prob be a really minor difference in favor of USB.

Anyone read a good review that focuses more on the gameplay, the technical side, how the two platforms match up, and so on instead of trying to make GTA out to be something it isn't?

You're going to have to wait for BD's AVS review there. Not much objectivity out there...

I can tell you for sure that even though they might send me one copy, they're def not sending me both.

I hope you're not all holding out for me to trash the game, cause I'm not buying into the idea that anyone is being paid off to score it so high. It looks pretty impressive on a technical and production level, and I've always liked GTA, I thought IV deserved all the 10s. I'm not super duper excited for it, but if it improves on GTA IV in most ways I'm gonna be pretty happy with it and score it accordingly.

Not at all, I actually am getting the feeling it's a pretty darn good game on all levels that has gone a ways to fixing my issues I had with GTAIV / RDR. But having played every GTA since Grand Theft Auto, I find it hard to believe that there's nothing to criticize/point out though.

My problem is most of the reviewers out there feel like they're not grounded, and are basking in the hype themselves which leads them to say terribly funny things.

A lot of times I'll find that I have plenty to criticize and point out, but I still really love the game despite all of it. Then I end up writing a review pointing all of that out, and the fact that none of that hindered my enjoyment gets lost. It's really hard to find that balance sometimes, and settling on a score is usually the hardest part of all, because people take it as some sort of objective measure of quality.

There's a game that recently came out, that I never bothered to write a full review for, because I just had no idea how to score it. What number do you put on something that you know is good game, but it's just not for you? What about something that's otherwise high quality, with the occasional thing that really, really rubs you the wrong way? What about something that's really dumb, but every other game does the same thing? Or if there's something very poorly done, but it's easily ignorable?

It's impossible to sum that up with a number.

I'll need to remember to pick this up from BestBuy this evening. Although I'm still waiting to hear back from them to make sure i get my $20 in reward zone dollars for my pre-order. When I ordered it in June that is what the offer was. But I noticed recently the offer was changed to only $10. And if they are only giving me $10 I might as well pick up up from from somewhere else.

I'm sure there are small things that you can criticize in this game, but a lot of reviews I read pointed out some issues with AI on The Last of US and still gave it a 10.

About the only difference I could see was the ps3 version looks to have a bit more texture detail on the ground. Something I'll never notice in game.

Thanks. Was looking for comparison like that just to make sure there was not some obvious reason to get the PS3 version over the 360. Really didnt see much difference except with some slightly better textures (ground) and far away (mountains, etc).

Just arrived! biggrin.gif Now to dust off the 360, download updates and install the game. tongue.gif

Probably won't have feedback 'till tonight, but in the meantime, here's a couple good spoiler-free videos of driving and gunplay. It looks -awesome-.

EDIT: strange, the first disc automatically asks for the location of install, and gives the options of hard drive or cloud. confused.gif

That's the install disc. It says it on the bottom. I picked it up at lunch and will get a few hours with it tonight and will post my feedback. It may be a little bias, just a heads up. I am a pretty big fan of the series.

Yep - everything that was good about GTA is in this game, and the bad stuff isn't. As far as I can tell at this early stage, the hype is true - they really got everything right this time.

And it's been said before, but it's bares repeating - it looks and feels next-gen. Looking forward to it running at @ 1080p/60fps on a PC someday, but this is good enough for now. smile.gif

Has anyone confirmed that the HD+memory stick install will work without a performance hit?

I 100% agree with everything you said. I played for 5 hours last night, and while accomplishing nothing in the story line I did open up a lot of the city. I am amazed at how beautiful R* was able to make this game. Tonight I plan to do a little more of the story and little less driving around and exploring.

Yup, can't get it to work. Hopefully it gets fixed soon. On another note my buddy just sent me this link and said it is good for getting discounts at stores in GTA V.

Got the game yesterday and here are my thoughts so far:

1. Gorgeous. Hard to believe that this is running on the same console as GTA-IV
2. Harder to evade police than before. When your car runs into another car, they tend to "stick" a little, which makes it harder to keep moving.
3. Character seems to be a poor fighter (at least to start), I got my ass kicked by the security guard at the movie studio.
4. The fun is back. I decided to try to find the edge of the map by swimming, and got eaten by a shark.
5. Also got killed by a cougar and a junkyard dog, both of which were pretty funny.
6. Strippers have much hotter bodies, but damn, they have cold, dead eyes.
7. Had Trevor riding around on a golf cart, and rode it into a gun store where the owner immediately shot and killed me.

So far I am loving the game, and I haven't really gotten into the story mode yet.

I picked it up and just played around an hour of early missions. So really just intro stuff still. Then...it happened. The same thing that always happens to me in R* games. I steal a car and go off on a mad rampage of mayhem and destruction. Sigh. And then I end up doing that for an hour and not progressing any story at all, ha.

Early thoughts:
- Graphics are amazing. Especially the city and background. People still look funky to me with that weird slouch and robotic movement. The slight disconnect in the voices vs. the mouth movements pulls me out of the game a bit just like old R* games.
- Voice acting is great. Lamar was cracking me up.
- Driving seems vastly improved. The cars don't slide around like they are greased. And throw in Franklin's special ability and it really comes in handy.
- Don't care for the control on switching guns. Maybe it's just early. And shooting from a car seems impossible to aim and hit anything.
- They did another amazing job on the radio stations. I was jamming to NWA and DJ Quick which were interspersed with hilarious commericals. 3

Favorite moment so far...speeding away in a stolen car when I hit an incoming Taxi. Franklin shoots out the windshield and smashes into a telephone pole. Barely alive he mumbles about how much it hurts and stumbles onto his feet...only to get slammed into by a Semi and killed instantly.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Especially the early mission in the big tow truck! I think I got my controller buttons confused and accidentally shot someone instead of changing the radio station. I hate when that happens IRL! biggrin.gif

Anyway, in that slow moving tow truck the police were on my tail the entire time. At one point I tried to hide in a parking garage and wait them out, but for some reason they were blocking me in as I was trying to leave. Damn cops.

I've found that evading Police is too easy. All I have to do is go on the railroad tracks and I'm free and clear.

I've only played a few hours but they watched me go into a tunnel and then just stopped trying to get me.

I played about 4-5 missions last night and still don't have trevor, so how do you have him if you haven't gotten into the story?
post #147 of 267
Robbed an armored truck today. The blue dot appeared showing something was happening around me. Little over 4K in the heist. Really cool thing that Just popped up.

I installed Disc 2 to the Hard drive and Disc 1 to a 16GB USB drive.

It actually runs faster and looks slightly better than playing from the Disc.

I installed it to a 16GB USB drive as well, seems to be running just fine. I can't comment on how the game runs from just the disc because I didn't even try it. I really hope the Xbox One/PS4 drives don't sound like jet engines this time around. My original phat PS3 was louder then my 360 but, both gave our Dyson vacuum a run for its money.


I played for about 2 1/2 hours last night and didn't even do a mission (except the first that you have to do at the start of the game). I just drove around exploring, found and climbed the Vinewood sign, found the big Land Act Dam and I left my character out in the desert somewhere trying to do a jump over a building and into an empty pool. I don't even have a gun yet. I think I'm going to have fun just driving around for awhile, this map is beautiful and full of surprises, it's a lot of fun to explore. I also tried stealing a jumbo jet but I could never get it off the ground before it blew up, maybe the cops started shooting missiles at it or something.

I'm just really impressed with the size and detail of the map. It is a huge jump when compared to GTA IV and even RDR.
