Review of GTA 5 Story Mode Mission: Father/Son
In this video, we take a closer look at one of the earliest but most action-packed missions of GTA 5 story mode, Father/Son. As players control Franklin, they set out on a mission to rescue Jimmy, who has been kidnapped by some thugs.
Overview of the Mission
The mission begins with Franklin driving to save Jimmy. Although Franklin is a skilled driver, this time he is more emotional than ever, making the driving experience more difficult. To make things challenging, Jimmy is on a yacht, and Franklin needs to drive to the seashore to intercept him.
After reaching the shore, the player needs to navigate a series of hills and narrow streets to find the yacht. The initial effort seems to be pretty easy and straightforward, but as one progresses, it becomes increasingly tough. One key takeaway from this mission is that the yacht is fast and stays quite far away from the shore, which makes it harder to catch up.
After finally catching up with the yacht, the player must fight off Jimmy’s kidnappers to rescue him. The kidnappers are well-armed, and they will stop at nothing to escape. As gunshots ring out, the yacht starts to explode, and chaos ensues. The player needs to act fast, rescue Jimmy, and escape on a dinghy as the yacht explodes.
One interesting observation during the Father/Son mission is how rockstar has used tactics that seem to be unnoticed by players, especially inexperienced ones. For example, in this mission, as Franklin starts yelling, the boat slows down, and when he stops, the yacht speeds up again.
Also, players need to pay attention to the yacht’s position relative to the shoreline during the chase, as it is easy to lose track of it. Another exciting aspect of the mission is its openness, allowing players to explore the surroundings and come up with their rescue strategies.
Overall, the Father/Son mission is an excellent introduction to the GTA 5 story mode, giving players a chance to experience the high-octane action and adrenaline-fueled driving. Although challenging, the mission is quite fulfilling, with multiple ways to complete it, making it one of the best in the game.
