what would make it better?

i have been playing this over the past few nights and its actually alot of fun.. the problem with it for me is that even though there are so many game modes to play i think they actually made to many modes and IMO should increase the amount of players per map to 32 vs 32 or even 64 vs 64...

Yeah more players would be cool but then that would take dedicated servers. Normally games with 32+ players require a server.

I think its total shit.

The shooting mechanics in this game breaks down completely when you are playing against live people.

Spawn > sprint to nearest target on radar > hold left trigger > hold right trigger > repeat

The games without auto aim are even worse.

If you're playing against crappy players.

You gotta think. The install base includes a lot of trailer trash, so the skill level won't be that great across the board. People who know how to use the roll mechanic and the cover (like me) do pretty well.

Nah, regardless of who I'm playing against, I just do not enjoy the shooting mechanics of that game. Its fun against the enemy AI, but I don't enjoy it as an MP game.

Games like COD and Halo are entirely based around their shooting mechanics, therefore MP games based entirely on that work. But GTA's shooting mechanics are tertiary, and they aren't so great when its all you do. (in my opinion, of course)

Absolutely.

I made the decision to go to the midnight launch at my local BB and three or four of the people in line had hoods pulled up with baggy pants.

One holding a kid in their arm that looked like it was about ready to fall on the floor like a rag doll. Both white trash and black trash were present.
