    Just started playing this tonight. I'm pretty terrible at it. First heist (jewellery store) ended in a huge firefight and I wasn't even close to retrieving the bags from the safe. I was playing with the AI though.

    Any newbie tips?

    If playing solo, you're going to have a hard time until you level up. Especially where stealth is involved (you just plain won't have the skills to do stuff quickly and quietly). The game isn't very good at explaining itself, either. If you want info on one particular aspect, I can probably help though.

    The most important thing is to get into the mindset that this isn't left for dead with banks: it's time crisis with drills. If you're not shooting something in the face, you should be in cover.

    The AI is pretty awful, unless you're doing something like Mallsmasher where they can keep the cops off your back while you do the breaking they're almost useless.

    It's a game where you need to be playing with other people, preferably people who use comms to keep everyone informed of current events, the game transforms completely then.

    This space left intentionally blank.

    Cool, ta. I'm a bit cautious about jumping online. I reckon I'm going to get yelled at for being rubbish. :(

    Picked this up on 360 a few days ago. Really enjoying it, and managed to claw my way to level 25. I'm a bit rubbish, still, but up for some games. GT is madtheswine.

    Well, I know I like games with a bit of jank, but this has kept me off GTA since I picked it up. Really enjoying it. Level forty one now and I'm still finding little tips and tricks... Had no idea you could shoot open wooden doors until last night. Working on ghost/tech and inching towards shaped charges. Hope we get the updates that buff the game soon.

    I'm guessing more dlc heists are in the offing?

    Any EG folk playing this? Just picked it up for cheap. Looks quite amusing.

    Got it for my birthday. Only played a few solo games so far. Would be up for some multiplayer if anyone fancies it.

    It really is quite brilliant. Rough as hell but very enjoyable.

    Looks like there will be chunks of DLC in 2014 too.

    My GT is Wunty Phyve feel free to add me for some co-op high jinks.

    This is still parked in front of the TV. Would be good to get some team games going again. Needs a bit of dlc now.
