Does anyone else fell that GTA4 has not lived up to the hype, it feels like an updated GTA3, and does not feel as good as GTA:VC or GTA:SA. The story was OK after i thought about it after awhile, it felt worse then VC and SA, the radio is better then 3 and SA but its lacking compared to VC. There is no FBI after 5 stars anymore, there is no army after 6 stars either. There are no police bribes and you can't enter paint spray shops when cops are around either.
The camera and controls are not as good as they were in SA. There are hardly any weapons compared to the other games. There is no Tank and there is no Hunter from what i have seen so far. Trying to exit one car and enter another one during a car chase with the cops is suicide. After 2-3 stars all the cops have shotguns, and they just plow into any car you are near and it kills you.
You are also forced to use cheats to get anough ammo or weapons to engage the cops for extended amounts of time. You have almost no cash aswell. Each time you die you lose over 10k cash, i have lost over 250k from dieing in this game so far, and spent about 150k on weapons and only have 600k or so left.
