        I love this game but I have one major issue as to why I never stay on it more than 5 minutes. The stupidly over powered sniper rifle. Why!? Its not big and its not clever! And that my friends is the reason this game will stay in its box.

                  Honestly, Rockstar brought a decade old game back to life in a new location. How many develops can say they've done this properly? Glitches might be plaguing the online gameplay but this was generally a single player experience, to what degree must a developer satisfy its customers? A majority of small gameplay tweaks have been added at our urging, if anyone should be to blame for the glitches, it's us, we wanted these changes. Now we have to deal with unexpected ones that come with it and act like adult for which the game is intended. I have interests that occupy the schedule s of entire weeks but I can still come together with friends online and slow mo to my hearts desire. Thank you R* I thought I had given up on games... Then you announced max Payne 3... Gta 5...

                    Wow playing Max Payne is wearing me out.In my last post i wrote that i had just finished an 8 hr session with not one single technical problem and i thought they had fixed it but then played the next night (was excited to see arrival of payne thresholds) and found it to be unplayable again,as bad as its ever been.Played again last night to see they had removed payne threholds AGAIN and it diddnt play to badly.R* seem to have got rid of the bugs (teleporting/falling thru floor)etc etc but the connection issues still plague this game.My excitement at thinking they had found a fix was obviously misplaced.Just dont know what to do really anymore except just keep playing and trust that R* will finaly get to the source of the problems because i love this damn game so much when it is running properly.Just hope the game runs well enough to make it playable from here on in up to the final fix in the next full update because the new dlc is out and the social club event is tonight and it really would be a disaster if the game is messing up badly with the influx of new playas...

                    @rockstargames : could you please add a penalty of 3 levels down
                    when you voluntarily play a guerrilla war but not when it has connection problems. abandon these volunteers often cause a block of my ps3 and I have to force restart .. happens also in the death match to 16 players. I hate these cowards who drop out just because they are undergoing many killings .. thanks in advance and sorry if my English is not perfect.

                    Hey Rockstar Games, have you ever heard of the concept of if it ain't broke don't fix it, well your stupid unnecessary update just broke this game. First I'm disappointed on how you screwed over everyone including myself who bought the Rockstar Pass but now after this stupid update it glitches all the time during Gang Wars. Thanks for not caring about us gamers who buy your products.

                    Really like some of the new features in the title update... I like the labels on the weapons showing their current rankings much easier than clicking on the weapon itself to see it's rank... save time when updating loadouts. also like the player card although there are some problems with it... for example mine says in single player I have 0/65 clues... this is wrong. I have them all.

                    On the negative side I've been experiencing some really weird glitches... like randomly respawning without dying. I could be firing a weapon at someone and suddenly I respawn on an entirely different part of the map. I seems to happen the most when I am using an RPG. Also I've died without going to the death screen and instead was still in the game as a corpse. Could not do anything except watch the clock count down until that round of Gang Wars was over. Also once was frozen in place on the map. I could still fire my weapon or melee kill anyone that came up to me but I was not taking any damage from from firearms or melee kills myself. Was finally killed by an explosive but then my screen got weird... it froze on my death scene in black and white as it would if it went to the death screen but did not show the kill shots and who killed me. Froze like that for like 30 sec then the mini map popped up in the corner but my screen still showed me dead and could not do anything but then I got auto-kicked for being idle.

                      @ Hi The Update is great and all but there is a bug where it says i didnt find any of the single player clues when i found all of them and even have both achievements *an echo of the past* and *sure know how to pick a place* the golden guns one is fine though

                    I'm having trouble unlocking trophies since the patch. Payne Bringer, Grave Robber, and Dearest of All Friends won't unlock for me.

                      well have just finished a 8 hr session and am so pleased to say had zero technical problems diddnt get disconnected once.Cant say how happy i am about this always said even when things were at the worst i had faith R* would get on top of the issues.People should now take the time to let their friends know things are fixed and get the player numbers right back up and every one can now get on with enjoying this brilliant game.R* if you are reading this thank you for sorting things out and if ppl get upset in their posts it is only because they care about this game...Cant wait for tomorrows dlc and hopefuly should bring in plenty of new playas and attract old playas back as well and all those with the season pass can be happy again as well...

                          R*, i love what you do, but this title update has made the online multiplayer virtually unplayable. Lag, teleporting and connection problems everywhere, please do what you can to fix it.
