Not true, I was following the game after they published the anime that came with 1.6 and the game is very much playable, there are no game breaking bugs. A few bugs here and there and that's it, nothing crazy, nothing to be crying about. Yes they should work on It but it does not affect the gameplay much.
The police system is absolute trash, and should be reworked, that's for sure, and the driving without a mod It's a pain in the ass, that's also true. But besides that, the game is in a good condition right now, and mods improve It greatly. I'm loving It personally.
