- Disconnecting issues (Prominently 'Timed Out' error messages)
- Jobs not downloading
- Kicking everybody from Freeroam when you come near them
- Constant resetting of character's
- Being stuck on loading screens for 10-20 minutes and most of the time it not launching the session
- Mandatory Tutorials (Of which you're forced to playthrough everytime you lose a character)
- XP resetting randomly throughout a game.
All these problems that the online is plagued with make it intolerable to play online. Hardly anything can be done, all aspects of the online are broken. The updates have improved it somewhat with the features and stability but it's still a disjointed, unfocused heap of a mess. Please sort this out Rockstar! For now, I'm giving this a 0 for unplayability but for effort it'd be an 8 or 9.… Expand

It's just the same exact gameThis game is severely overrated. I can't believe how highly the critics are rating this game. Are you insane? It's just the same exact game each year with changes so minuscule there's no point in bothering. It just gets worse and worse as EA continually strips away more features in favour of micro-transactions or DLC. It's disgusting! Put some actual effort into your games, EA! Stop screwing over your consumers. Please stop supporting an evil, antagonistic corporation that only seeks to monopolise and corrupt the game's industry. They don't care about you, all they care about is releasing the game as fast as possible so they can get as much money as possible. Also, please work on your games for 4-5 years and stop shutting down the servers after only 6 months 1 year. What's the point in having servers if you're just going to shut them down? Actually have substantial updates in your games and have good DLC that is not just a character locked out of the game. It's ridiculous! Conclusion: Screw EA! After I buy Mirror's Edge 2 (Which EA should have no involvement in, only Dice.) I will never buy another game that EA has made or published ever again.… Expand

It's so incompetently made. Another rushed movie-tie in game that defines the words 'God', and 'Awful'. The story, which is basically non-existent is poorly acted and the lip movements don't match up to what the characters are saying. EVER! Not even once! Besides that, the choice system that you get is entirely pointless since you always end up with the same outcome in the story. The characters are extremely annoying when they're conversing in battles and the jokes are in such poor taste. Every mechanic of the game is broken! The item pick-up requires you to aim your crosshair to get that item but it only picks up at a very precise moment. The enemies are bland, cutter-cutter pasted enemies over stretched out levels which are a bore to playthrough. Hell, just aim and shoot the screen and you'll kill everything in sight 95% of the time. Where you can move your crosshair is constrictive aswell, since there are mandatory stealth sections where you sometimes have to shoot an alien or object that is just out of sight. Though that isn't frustrating at all since the game is so easy. The aiming is so sensitive aswell which means you will try to aim at something and then the crosshair will shift slightly to the left or right. You have no option to turn this off, so if constant positioning of the screen annoys you, you can't do anything about it. The graphics are absolutely abysmal, but atleast they aren't so bad the game is unplayable. It's playable but just barely. Only positive thing I can say about it, even though it's a crap game atleast it has the decency to be easy and there are hardly any glitches. To conclude, it's just another shameful movie-tie game which the developers should be ashamed of. Absolutely no effort went into this game; so please, spare yourself the effort of playing it.

Instead what we got was a series of lame jokes, repetitive gameplay and design, cheap boss fights and unfunny jabs at other popular games. All of the games referenced, ironically are better than this game! You might aswell play the old Duke Nukem games. Did I also mention, all of the mini-games suck? The multiplayer is mediocre too. There is some fun to be had in this game, don't get me wrong. I loved all the titillation enforced by the sexist portrayals of women in the game and some of the shooting segments were fun. I'm not surprised that this game has an abundance of deficiencies in the gameplay. Most of the development time most of been spent on animating the poo and writing out 'forced' jokes.… Expand

It is just fun to speed around and watch buildings tear apart and race against other enemies. However, two things that need to be improved: The multiplayer, where you can get disconnected regularly. It also takes quite a long time to level up so by then you will likely be bored of as it doesn't have much variety. Collectables: Collectables in a god-damn racing game!? That's a terrible idea, especially when it is executed so poorly here. They are even placed in eliminator matches where you don't have time to search for them, otherwise you will just be eliminated. That stuff is incredibly annoying! And no backtracking is allowed to get these, you have to get them in one fell swoop. Luckily, it does save the ones you've previously got so you don't need to focus on them again. Overall, a good game but multiplayer needs improvement and the collectables are just a stupid idea for a game like this; where all you want to do is race around, not collect things.… Expand

Some people hate this game and someDue to the nature of this relatively new concept this game seems to have mixed reviews across the board. Some people hate this game and some people like it, both being in a subjective way. While I generally liked this game, it still has some flaws but that doesn't it stop from being one of the funnest games I've ever played. The responsiveness of the controls seems to be a bit of a problem, to get through certain trials the tricks you have to pull have to be so specific it's more luck-based than skill. The story isn't going to blow you away either, it's your typical "Ah, people in government positions have gone corrupt and you have to fix that." Yeah, I just couldn't care for it and you'll get detached from the story pretty early on. Overall, I liked the innovative first person-camera that made you feel like you were a real-person manoeuvring around buildings, which for the most part works well. I liked this kind of style that sets it apart from other games, it makes for some adrenaline-induced gameplay in terms of running. The speedruns were a nice addition, which focused on the Parkour elements of the game and made you think of how to reach your destination. The time trials for the levels I feel they should of just added in the main missions and made them as an additional objective. The combat though really slows the game down and makes the game feel clunky. Seriously, less of that and places in the game where you have to stop, more jumping around and finding ways to go through levels. What's dissapointing is that you can't race with other friends online. They had a missed opportunity there, with a game that focused some much on the mechanics of free-running it would of been better to share that experience with friends. The paths you used can sometimes be a bit too constricting, I feel they could of added a few more paths on how to go about doing things, instead of going down the same route. The collectables are nothing note-worthy and the game does get a little repetitive at the end but overall, it's a good game despite its flaws.… Expand

The user createdThis game relinquishes all my worries and just lets my imagination take control again. Seriously, this game is addictive. The user created levels using the tools MM has given you is the selling point of the game. Unlimited levels across the world from people who are incredibly talented at this never ceases to amaze me. You don't go into LittleBigPlanet expecting a superb story, you just want to have some mindless fun with your friends! And the connection is pretty stable. Needless to say, I've looked tons of hours socialising with other players, playing levels with them, creating levels with them and then screwing them over by b****slapping them. :p The levels are unique and the interface is concise and helpful so you can find exactly what you're looking for. The story missions are pretty creative aswell, I especially like the prizes you get for not dying and the prizes you get for collecting prizes bubbles. Did I mention this is one of the few games that gets collectables right? For one they're actually useful in designing your own levels and they are located in places you'de have to think to look. Adding a degree of challenge to the game. The only critiscm I can give is that it can be a bit laggy online, especially on the last level of the story mode. With everything else the game does right it's easily rectified though.
BTW: The narrator (Stephen Fry) is awesome. He also guides you through mechanics of the game (Such as prize bubbles or level creating.)… Expand

Aside from the novelty of being Family Guy the game isThis game is incredibly short and will only appeal to hardcore Family Guy fans. Aside from the novelty of being Family Guy the game is barebones for content. The jokes are recycled and overused which just makes them annoying rather than hilarious. The levels are ridiculously easy and short, just blasting your way to get to the next level. It's a rather fun game, I admit it but it just sticks way too close to its comfort zone. Atleast they tried to be creative with the design and convey the crudity and obscene humour of the show. Hell, that "Chicken Fight" level would be hilarious if I hadn't seen it before but I have. The game is only a couple of hours long which is disappointing because at that point the only content left is multiplayer which is kind of lacklustre with the modifications you'de expect, just tailored to the show's humour. Multiverse Madness I don't see the point in either. They didn't even try to be original there, just ripped off a mode that a lot of other games had and do it poorly with frustrating glitches and aiming. Overall, nothing in this game will make you mad but nothing will make you particularly happy either. Just take it for what it is, which is a decent game that you should rent if you're a huge Family Guy fan.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.5Apr 6, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Before I start this out, I have to say: Vaas is a mother******* badass! He is the most menacing and psychopathic villain I've ever come across, he's deranged and creepy, yet still unpredictable because of his calm attitude. But then.... BAM! He backlashes while Jason Brody is soiling himself. He is so good and so developed that you'll wish he was in more of the game. It was a total disappointment when I had to kill him half-way through the game and we encounter the other villain: Hoyt, who I totally forgot about and is not as memorable as Vaas. There are also genuine moments in this game where I was like "OMG! I did not expect that to happen!" It's also interesting with all the subtle details of the story: The character's bickering over how they're going to get off the island and then Jason's build-up as a character when he gradually starts to like killing people. He even begins to enjoy this so much that instead of leaving with the others, he chooses to stay on the island just to kill Hoyt. A testament to how motivated he has become. Despite all this I didn't know what to make of the ending option where you kill your friends and have sex with Citra. What's the point of that? You already had sex with her earlier in the game anyway. I'd rather he escaped off the island with his friends. Both options leave hardly anything of an impact on me.
The gameplay is diversified, allowing you to select your own options of whether you want to go in stealthily or guns-blazing. This adds variety to the game and allows you to play how you want to play. Vehicles have this free-flowing feel to them, while also reacting to uneven terrain which gives them a realistic feel. The whole island is vibrant and enriched with detail, it is interesting to explore, especially with the gliders and air-wings at your disposal. Wildlife further solidifies it as a living, breathing island and they're not too many of them so they never become an annoyance. Skinning animals to sell in shops in exchange for resources like superior guns and equipment is well worth doing, especially when going on a rampage. You earn experience points by doing side-missions, getting collectables, outposts, main missions etc. These help upgrade your skills and there are some pretty unique things to unlock here. The side missions are fun aswell, some keeping with the theme of massacring everybody that's near you, traversing the island in an efficient time by vehicle, stealth takedowns, helping random strangers out. The last is clearly the worst as I had no reason to care about the inexplicable dilemmas they got themselves into, whereas the rest focused on what the game was about and I loved it for that. The mini-games are a fun diversion but they could of implemented them better. Poker was just mediocre. See "Red Dead Redemption" to know how to make a real poker mini-game.
The co-op is nothing special as it just feels like a severely watered-down version of singleplayer. Needless to say, I didn't care for it much. The multiplayer is nothing note-worthy either, it's essentially a COD clone but atleast it's functional which is more than I can say for a lot of other games. The Collectables have detail surrounding them, from what the guy who wrote it was doing in a past life or what it is about. It adds more depth to them but they're still not all that interesting and a chore to collect, I may add. Last final gripe I have is with the over-usage of quick-time events for boss battles. It's extremely lazy, they already a cool concept with the all drugs thing but it wasn't really expanded that much and they missed a massive opportunity for some incredibly creative battles. Overall, Far Cry 3 despite its flaws is an unforgettable experience and should not be overlooked.… Expand

This game has supremely high-production values, especially when it comes to the story or the graphical fidelity. In the sense of gameplay, not so much. See the developers stuck so heavily to the script most of what gameplay consists of is mundane story missions where you tail a fixed target. It's repetitive and boring, providing no innovation at all. The combat is still fluid, albeit easy but it's nice to see how inventive they were with some of the ways you can kill your enemies. The animations and the game world is breathtaking, with the mountain regions being implemented in the game for a new, dynamic free-running system. This for the most part, works very well but it's a shame you're discouraged to explore the rooftops so heavily with the amount of guards that are conveniently up there. The side-missions and other activities lack any real engagement or reason to care about them, they just feel tacked-on. The naval missions though are a welcome addition to the series and fit the era the game is depicted in. The story and voice-acting are good but the new protagonist lacks any personality, he just feels like some guy. Oh, and don't even get me started on that s***** ass ending which is obviously intended as sequel bait. Lastly, the 100% synchronization is supposed to be a set of additional objectives in a mission but the missions are so linear and centred around the story anyway that you probably won't notice or care about it. Overall, it's a good game but I feel like the series is spiralling downward more and more, going onto the path of the endless Call of Duty sequels.… Expand
