Amazing so far!,
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto V - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
Although I cannot review this game in its entirety, I can still tell you about some of the things ive noticed right away. I have not finished the game yet, but I am a good deal into it.
Before you even put in the playable disk you must install the first disk. Yes there are two disks, but do not install the second! (As in load it to your hard drive) Rockstar made an announcement about this, i just wanted to warn everyone aswell.
First off, as most gta games have been, you must complete a short mission before you can do whatever you like. No spoilers there.
Once you do get to free roam, it is amazing. The map is beautiful, and there is so much to do. This game is so far, amazing!
There was alot of debate about the driving engine in this game, I find it to be much better than gta 4.
-Tons of stuff to do
-Driving is awesome
-You can say goodbye to your social life for a while!
-But on a serious note, there is no app for android to customize cars etc.
-Also there are some bugs. (Cars randomly flipping over, wrong clothes on character)
-no big glitches, but small things that make it not perfect.
Overall, Just buy it already! You're missing out!!
Update September 18th 2013.
-Loading (Or lack of loading) is flawless! You transition from cutscene to playing soo smoothly.
-The missions are extremely fun and have great variety!
-Ive played for about 8 hours (Focusing on missions) and im only 20% into the total missions.
-Switching weapons takes time to get used to, but is a great system overall
-Ive never been more into a story in a video game before!

It is amazing, as stated, but there is no app for android to customize vehicles and such. Also there are a few glitches. I probably should make it a 5 star review, but for right now it is not 100% perfect. Thanks!

They are actually working on a Android version so don't worry! Just read an article pertaining to that! Scroll all the way to the bottom, btw the PC version is always an option if you just want the manual: http://www.rockstargames.com/V/downloads

It is said that by installing the second disk rendering becomes glitchy and the overall performance of the game goes down. If you did it and it is working fine, that good. I just wanted to relay what rockstar had stated on their site.

The clothing glitch is supposed to happen if you switch to another character for a certain amount of time they will change their outfit I do kind of wish you could disable it sometimes they look ok other times its bad hair always remains the same though.

I have some problems with clothing sometimes. As in, I am picking out shoes and the pants i am wearing change to other pants. Small things like that.

Rockstar recommend against installing the 2nd disc on the HDD, as it loads from both HDD and disc simultaneously so if it's forced to load from only HDD it creates a bottleneck for the game. But you can get around this by installing the 2nd disc on an USB external device.
