    An ambitious project that delivers one of the most compelling and enjoyable online experiences ever. GTA Online is an amusement park at your disposal where the player decides what to do and how to do it. Amazing.

    Grand Theft Auto Online is very entertaining and it has a lot of variation. Perhaps more than any online action game before. The player collecting routines could be better, though. [Nov 2013]

    Despite the terrible servers, grand theft auto online is basically just a terrible online game. It's like World of Warcraft and Diablo in the sense that you have to grind money to buy things with no actual goals. The game modes jobs, missions or whatever the f*** they are, they are pretty badly made up.

    I'm really disappointed because I was really looking forward to the online. They should of stuck to GTA IV way of doing it. Oh well, rockstar are now with EA in my game developers rank list, that's how low they are.

    Sorry Rockstar even Cod and Activision games servers work on day one and you don't lose your character details and progression after a few hours with those games.

    Also the character creations a joke as well, what did you research for inspiration when you made that? The Sims?

    So far GTA Online is a disappointment. It's far from the open world MMO style crime game I was hoping it would be. The content isn't particularly impressive and it is filled with glitches and server issues. It can still be fun, especially if you're playing with friends, but the uninspired and somewhat bland content brings the whole experience down. If Rockstar Games cleans up the bugs and server issues, and adds some new content that will actually excite people, then they will have a truly great online game for people to play. As it stands right now GTA Online is fun, but sadly disappointing and hardly impressive at all. Full Review »
