    Is the online part basically the whole world map with scaled back npcs and traffic?

    Yeah, multiplayer missions can either be launched by a quick menu on the phone or triggered by walking over star icons. There's also jobs, which tend to be predominantly single-player and progress story.

    No. That would be shit. I've just unlocked free roam gang wars, player bounties, merryweather attack chopper support, security vans are now in the city. Brucies testosterone deliveries. Free roam just gets better the more you rank up.

    @darkmorgado Does the world feel a bit empty with those things scaled back?

    Don;t know if I can be fucked to get that far. Just spent 40 minutes doing jobs, then got bummed by some free roamers and lost all of that money.

    The game is 100% absolutely designed to funnel you into the currency purchases and that is sad.

    I swear there is something fruity going on, I started the session with 34k in the bank and 900 in my hand from selling a car. Do a few missions (die a few times) and come back out into the world, get murdered by some free roamers and suddenly have 29k in the bank and nothing in my hand.

    @captbirdseye hmmm, it can do, but most of the timeI'm having so much fun I hardly notice.

    The inevitable PC and/or next gen versions probably won't scale it down at all.

    There's a hospital fee f you get wasted in free roam.

    Is there an EG PS3 crew I can join?
    ...I have 0 friends with the game on PS3, and I hate playing with complete randoms :-(

    As Morgado said, each time you in FR there's a fee. It's up to $2k, apparently. But you never see it being deducted, which gives you a false sense of freedom.

    I think you even lose cash if you die in races.

    How do the bounties work? Someone put a 3k bounty on me but I wasn't sure how long it lasted or what I was supposed to do to get rid of it, if anything.

    Oh, and I didn't realise destroying peoples personal vehicles makes you a bit sport. I did find out that the cannons on the jet are quite lethal though.

    I know this is probably going to get shot down pretty quick but I wanted to see if anyone else shared my view..

    After playing quite a bit of this with no problems, I've actually decided it's pretty crap. It has some real funny moments online but that's mixed with a lot of hugely frustrating moments that just end up Pissing me off. It's seems very basic when it gets down to jobs/missions though free roam is a good laugh for a while.

    It's bummed me out our a bit for gta which I'm gutted about as I now have no urge to play it at all. Maybe I just need to leave it a few days..

    Well more opens up as you rank up, and there's stuff like the User-Generated Content tools which are being released soon, and they've confirmed expansions. So it will continue to grow and evolve over time.

    Plus there seem to be some things that hint at the player cap being increased at some point, but probably only in the PC/next-gen release.

    I think this when it works is quite amazing, I reckon once the mission editor is live you could create some spectacular missions, I like the story missions and think they are the best so far but I'm quite good at the parachuting

    Also you really should be able to specify no Rally races when you're joining races from the quick jobs list. Utterly pointless.

    It is good when it gets going, so I reckon a few weeks down the line this will be one hell of a game. I had a pretty good time just now with random jobs before it spluttered out on me.

    Even won a game by virtue of everyone else being disconnected and leaving me the sole person left : D

    How do you go about joining the EG crew?

    Played for a couple of hours, finished a mission and the game froze on the birds-eye-view thing. Reset to find my character gone.

    What's the point?

    God no, it would end up being hack central.
