Yeah, groupsex seems to be the way to go
So, I played a bit more, drove some other cars, and... it's not good. There are some cars that respond better than others, but I found that all of them react pretty slow when driving at high speeds. You know, what you're gonna do if you have to drive for a few KM, before making a sudden sharp right. The amount of times I've hit the sidewalk is high. Even still, it's nothing compared to GTAV.Great review! How's the driving?
Other than that... The combat is good. My earlier concern about me getting slaughtered in a combat situation was due to both my guns being underleveled, my armor being low, and me taking on a high level mission. When taking on the "moderate" missions, OHK headshots are very doable, if you have a high powered gun.
That said, once you get the Nakamoto sniper rifle, the game just rolls over. It's a sniper rifle that you can upgrade to your current level, so it does great damage. Headshots kill in all but a few cases. On top of that, it has the ability to charge your shot, for a more powerful hit - and it can shoot through walls. You just, take cover, take aim, blast the enemies who are hiding, and it just kills them outright. I wiped an entire gang attack with this thing, it's insane.
