Ok, I just saw the IGN review and was like "WHAT?!" I've never actually played a GTA. It just doesn't look interesting. I haven't seen any videos for it yet (I'm in class right now and will watch some when I go home) but a perfect 10 from IGN. The story and everything. And Hil (big Ninja Gaiden fan) reviewed it. I have mixed feelings about getting this game. Are you guys excited for it?

Aparantly thats whats going on, its getting perfects left and right, everything that was wrong with the perfect andreas was fixed, and it is the first true next gen game.


But seeing as I never liked any of them, I doubt much has really changed with this one. Rockstar just sends checks I'm sure.


Good for them, its still probably repetitive, broken, and glitched to all hell.


Woooo...

Yeah, I saw it today and couldn't believe they gave it a 10 ! :/

I know it's great and all .. But 10?!

I don't know if I'll get it or not, depends on the price I guess (it's different story here).

i told myself that if it got over 9.5 from ign that i would buy it. the reason i kinda hoped it wasn't gonna be that great is b/c gta games you play forever and NG2 will be upon us in just about a month. i only like to focus on one game at a time, so i wanted to finish ng2 then go through gta but it looks like it'll probably be vice versa now.

best thing about open ended sandbox games like gta 4 is that it's so much fun to just drive around and cause havok. even after you finish the single player story game there's still so much to do. i played vice city for months driving around on a motorcycle looking for huge jumps (you get rewarded when you find them) and just seeing how much trouble i can cause before getting arrested.

the way the trouble system works is fun, if the the cops see you doing something bad then they come after you, if you kill a cop they'll send the swat team after you! if you survive long enough evading the swat team the FBI will eventually get into the fray (along with dark colored suv's and suits). the final straw is the army will come and be super pissed off...good times ahead.

Gametrailers awarded it a 9.8.

Seems GTA4 is living up to the hype after all.

You tell me about it , gamespot gave it a 9.9 .....


Either Rockstar throws bribe-checks around like crazy or this is indeed the best game of the decade.

Yeah, Gamespot gave it a 10. I was very surprised by that because they've only given around 10 ten's so far. Needless to say, this game is a must buy, and I'm getting it today after an orthodontist appointment, even though I feel like crap. Also, did anybody see the video where Niko is meeting with the Russian Mafia? It's hilairious.

I bought because of all the good reviews it got. But the truth is that no game is as overrated as GTA4, I really regret that I bought it instead of NG2. I played it for a week, got bored, then went back to halo 3. I really fail to see what's so great about it.

GTA multiplayer is awful but I like the single player game. It's like of like playing a crime movie complete with bank robberies etc. I have about 35% done so far. Its a slow start but picks up later. But I won't finish for awhile now the at NGII is out. I'll just use it for breaks from other games. It's not a perfect 10 out of 10 either just a reg game. Not as much innovation as I thought there would be.

I like these last two posts ^


I played it when my buddy brought it over. After two hours I couldn't have fun with it.



Over hyped and rated in my book


*plays NGII*

Really!? I loved this game from start to finish. One of the best stories in game history. Multiplayer was mediocre, but a step in the right direction. Single player was unbelievable.

I have the game but I plan to trade it.


GTA games have never been very thought out and I like games that are.


By far the best edition to the game is the increased graphics, it needed those bad.

But the only problem with the game is when you've finished it once, you don't have a reason to play it from start again. I agree the game is overrated, it seems that a lot of reviewers gave a score based on their very early impressions. Maybe Saint's Row 2 will bring something fresh and competitive, who knows...
