Now that’s some fun stuff :) Some of the “storyline” ones are a little weak — the “hangman’s noose” is real hard till you work out how to survive the first couple of wave of cops.
After Ramp logged I played a few 4-player unranked games with some cool guys, the PvP ones are actually a pretty good blast – the cops and robbers was pretty hillarious, my favorite part being Frenchy and myself trying to catch the robbers who had reached a boat, by swimming/climbing down the broken down jetty and then desperately and vainly trying to swim out to the boat while the robbers slowly nudged the boat a step at a time out of range :)
I was really hoping Free mode would let you do missions and stunt jumps and stuff – but it’s just “hang out in Liberty City” which isn’t quite so much fun. I can imagine a lot of GTA freaks using it to make movies maybe.
The multiplayer session stuff is kinda bug prone, we had to keep restarting games and stuff, and the UI is a little unusual but you get the hang of it slowly. Probably be playing some more of that this week. We’re gonna be playing Conan next week, although I still need a good BE fix :)
