Enjoyable at first
on 27 January 2014
The pure amount of things to do in this game at first became quickly overwhelming and extremely enjoyable.
At first, the amount of character customization you can use is inspiring. The creation tool to make a character of your own is powerful and precise and you can practically have a character completely suited to your personality, which makes a nice change from the monotony of a specific character that was created by someone else (it was nice not being stuck playing a male driver).
But the novelty wore off when the character you play only basically has the personality you gave it and there isn't much interesting in the way of back story or anything that you can really learn.
Then I was blown away with the amount of side missions and activities I could partake in...however, the novelty of this wore off also as soon as I figured out that I was basically just repeating the same thing over and over. I got to the end of a mission line and basically found it had started all over again without reason or rhyme, I became increasingly frustrated by this and just gave up on even completing the game after this as it seemed to give no indication if it made any difference to any kind of "completion".
There's a lot of silliness and reasons to laugh in the game, but...they wear off and get overdone fast. I also have to say as far as Radio stations and music available to listen to in the game...this had very poor choices available, there was very little that suited my taste (then again, it was that way with GTA V too).
So...Is the game worth the money? Absolutely, but does it get boring? Yes.
It simply isn't quite as epic (in my opinion) as the Grand Theft Auto games, it seems more epic at first with it's flashy cut scenes and similar humour, but in essence, it's just not as riveting and engrossing. It gets repetitive and in my opinion that can be a bad thing.
