So far I can't say I'm that impressed with GTA V, the controls are horrible and the graphics they claimed were the PS3/360 were clearly not. I've already had enough of 'homey' 'nigga' and the constant cursing which makes up the main script so thought I'd hop into a cop car to do some vigilante missions but doesn't look like there are any.
Kinda feeling the same, controls are ok, shooting mechanics are better than 4, but driving still seems crap. That whole early section with Franklin really annoyed me with the street talk, and far to much swearing. The Michael/Franklin section is slightly better, but what the hell is with the grading of missions?
Need to play more to get a better feel for it, but the opening couple of hours of SR4 had me hooked and wanting to play more, the first couple of hours of GTA V have left me cold.
My annoyance with the controls is that the auto aim seems really strong but goes the wrong way so I'm in cover and aim at a guy then swing out, the auto aim takes over and swings me towards another target completely but misses. So I end up swinging all over place and missing because the auto aim keeps taking control but doesn't target properly although I'm hoping it gets better as shooting skills improved. The car controls seem a bit wonky as the car doesn't steer instead it rotates and the rotation is particularly quick with faster cars although again it perhaps gets better with an increase in driving skills. Michael is a welcome relief from the constant homey/nigga talk (which I assume they think is funny to have nigger in every single sentence with some conversations) although I was hoping I could do side missions with him instead of Franklin but it seems they're fixed to a character.
I think it may well get better in time as it's kind of drip feeding everything at the moment and the missions are very dull but as you say it's not very appealing, it's just boring to play. I fancy giving Saint's Row 4 a go now though as it's down to £25 and it does look like it's a lot more fun.
