If anyone else gets this game...let me know how you like it please.
I've played this game on PS3, and bored the hell out of me. And I love platformers.

Same. I was thinking it was going to be a lot better....deleted it. Glad it was free from PS+!

To reduce the impact of guns on violent crime, you need a far more aggressive ban-and-confiscate law that would never in a million years fly with the American people or with the SCOTUS.

Yup, and few people would hand over their guns if somehow the 2nd amendment was nullified, and then who's going to go confiscate them? The police?

Nope.

I'm having a really really hard time with this one. While I want to preorder to get the whole game, I know I will stop after a few hours if the kb/m controls are even close to what people have been talking about in here and other threads. Then again they can fix controls pretty easy with patches... but they won't fix it because well most of the time other then DLC bugs just stay in release games.

You only get an hour of extra "game time" with the DLC. The outfits can probably be purchased in game, and the upgrades to your abilites are all things that can be obtained early on.

That being said, GMG still has he 25% off, you can get the vanilla game for about $40.00. Just be aware your copy will reside at UPlay. So it is more expensive to go to Steam or box copy, but.....I dunno...pick your poison.

Quite a few of them are user error (charging their card rather than using coins) or sheer stupidity

Yes, but therein lies the genius of the scam. Why else wouldn't they continue to use a world currency like the U.S. dollar? Because there's money to be had from the confusion that arises with this conversion nonsense.

Even if everyone understood the rules, Amazon would be ahead. Why? Because you can't use two currencies for one purchase--you either buy more Amazon Coins, or you pay for the order with world currency. Either way, Amazon makes out. It's the same for every business who has gone with their own proprietary currency. You lose one dollar here, one dollar there... multiply that by millions.

You have a few options when buying something, one is a huge box that says USE AMAZON COINS.

I have NEVER paid for coins, they show up in my account all the time for other things that I do. Free shit as far as I am concerned.

Have 3-4 hours in the game - there is no way the PC was lead platform - it just isn't possible.

As stated, the menu and UI is direct console version. Large text and boxes, terrible mouse input, weird mouse movement, etc.

Weapon wheel is really f-d up. Hold tab then go around, but then there are multiple selections for each item, and it isn't easy to switch. Just a mess.

Because the mouse stuff is so jacked up, gun fights are a nightmare - I guess I could turn on auto aim.

If the PC was lead platform, none of the UI stuff would be this bad. It is absolutely unacceptable in 2014 for this stuff to be like this.

It honestly feels like an arcade driving game with running elements put in afterwards. It lacks polish. Remember the last few Driver games? Where you could get out of the car and run around - yea, it feels THAT bad.

I agree with everything you have written here. It's a shame too, because it resides near the border of great game territory, while crippling itself enough to exist on the side of frustrating deficiency.

The sluggish controls continually pull me out of a sense of immersion, which amplifies the annoyance of a console oriented UI. They got close, but it isn't likely a game I will be going back to after a week, or so.


That's some really disappointing feedback. The lack of reviews so close to release has me equally worried at this point. Comparing it to driver 2/3 on playstation 1/2? WOW.

no! The newest ones that you could get out of your car.

Sounds like a bunch of things got nerfed, so if you weren't in early getting past it all you are too late.

The only thing I can figure that you could be talking about is the difficulty increase in VR level questing with the last patch that was confirmed as being a bug and unintended. There isn't anything that became impassible because of any nerfs.

Yea, only other comments I have heard is that they fixed some of the drops for Motifs and corrected the market. Appears to be all good fixes so far.

Anyone playing yet? It is everywhere.....

Hrm...apparently YOU are. Let us know how it is

First impressions: I will avoid spoilers - just what I have noticed so far.

At first hacking was annoying - gets better.
Controls are....sloppy...not as tight as GTA or SR, almost like there is a very slight lag.
Using kb/m and also controller, takes some tweaking, almost feels like it is mouse acceleration but it isn't - just odd.
Haven't even played a campaign mission yet, spending all my time on side stuff, lots to do.
I said the map isn't that big, I haven't left the first "area" and have a ton to do and messing around with.
Some of the digitizing stuff is annoying.
Although walking is 3rd person, you can have multiple driving angles. FOV is a little off.
Didn't take long to find duplicate people and duplicate conversations in the game.
Cop chases are done better than GTA, they "search" for you and there isn't always a defined "get away" area.
Ran off a 2 story building and died.
Cars are terrible as expected.
Motorcycle is wayyyy to touchy, as others had stated from watching videos.
Progressions of skill trees is done pretty well.
Side games also have skill trees - I am spending a LOT of time in side games - also has leaderboards, looks like it will include friends, so we have to have uPlay friends lists now? sux.

That is after an hour or so of play.
Very impressed.
Is it GTA or SR? No. Is it everything we thought it would be? Undecided. It is a very nice product, and I suggest getting it, especially at the GMG price. Is it worth full price @ $59.99? eh, if you have nothing else to play I guess it is. I am glad I did the GMG route.

Retail stores are breaking the date all over the place.

oh, PC stuff:
Lots of detail and options for maxing out your PC settings. I had them all maxed, and noticed some audio to mouth movement lag, so I backed a few things off and FPS went up big time. It looks pretty damn good, with most settings maxed, AA backed off to 2x. No tearing that I have noticed and minimal pop in. I have not crashed because of pop in, the view distance is an adjustable item, and I have it maxed.

oh, I know this is a killer for some, while driving, you can adjust where the angle of the camera is, and it stays for a while, it isn't like (GTA4?) where you have to HOLD it there while you drive. So it isn't super annoying, but not the best.....there is a very cool in car driving mode that shows your arm and blurred hud.

Gun fights are a challenge early on. I have died 3 times. 1x by cops, 2x by falling off of buildings.

This is utter bullshit. They need to put the time in to fix Metro....FOV sucks, textures are terrible, it doesn't have polish. So instead of fixing the game - they re-release it and charge 25.00!!! F THAT!

The original game has a default FOV of 45!!!!!! WTF!?

Yup. Running 6 characters. Each specializes in a craft, but will probably move my Alchemy to my Provisioning character. The update changed a hell of a lot.

7 minutes to drive across the map...(includes video)

It does look like a nice map, but their "7 minutes to drive across" is bogus, as they're constantly turning around and essentially double-backing. It looks like had they driven in a straight line, they'd have crossed the map in maybe 2-3 minutes. Still, the city itself looks nice and big, and well-detailed.

It's a shame the 'country side', so to speak, is so small. I'd have liked to have seen that be bigger. Not necessarily GTA5 big, but bigger than the two streets and a traffic light that it is in WD.

Also, is it me, or does everything seem a bit... empty? This is one of the largest cities in the US, and every street has like 1 pedestrian and 2 or 3 cars on it and that's it?



wow.....map looks pretty damn small!

Hopefully someone does a GTA overlay soon.

I want it to be good! I really do. But they haven't showed SHIT in game! That is a huge red flag. There is no where NEAR the amount of info/screens/video/etc that GTA5 put out - and they are going for that market.
