    Grand Theft Auto IV

    It's here. I don't have a 360 so I can't play it. But I'm curious for those of you who did pick it up, does it deserve the incredible reviews it has gotten? IGN USA and IGN UK both gave it a 10 - something I've almost never seen them do. It's received nearly perfect scores at every review site I've seen.

    In fact, the reviews are so high that I'm tempted to buy a 360 just for this game.

    So, is it as awesome as everyone says?

    Alot of reviews are giving it perfect/near perfect scores.

    I just sent my xbox away to get fixed today, so i'll be playing in 2 weeks hopefully.

    I just looked at the physics/animation engine used, it is incredible the work that went into that engine. Characters stumble and keep their balance like a real person and even react to 'pain'.

    GTA4 is supposed to be coming in the mail today, so I'll see how good it really is.

    I wish my local newspaper was right... because it isn't a computer game :sad2:

    And it's the sixth installment in the game, not fourth :rant:

    Perhaps : but then again I like games that you probably dont like.
    So perhaps we are even then :)

    edit : I like games that are based on dices, but played on a PC. That should make everything clear

    I've never seen why the game is so adored by so many people.

    Personally I got tired of stealing cars, doing hit jobs, running from the cops and dealing drugs half way into GTA2.

    Re: Grand Theft Auto IV

    I really liked GTA: Vice City... but was completely NOT interested in the "gangsta" version that came after it... in fact, it made me lose interest in the game.

    However, I might be interested in this game eventually - particularly if it's as good as people seem to be making it. ATM though, I put more time into WoW and don't play the xbox360 often enough to make it worth it for me to rush out there and get a copy. Hell, I haven't fully played The Simpsons (which I had fun with) or even Gears of War (not that impressed with that game thus far).

    To continue buying games you don't like makes you either stupid or retarded.

    You're supposed to kill the cops, not run from them. :evil:

    But only in the game.

    Re: Grand Theft Auto IV

    How could that ever become tiring?

    The game looks amazing, and my roommate is on his way to pick up a pre-ordered copy now. Which sucks because I have two tests tomorrow. Anyway, the real treat this game seems to promise is the multiplayer mode. I've always wanted to play GTA with others, and finally I'll be able to. And not just with others, but with 15 others. That's a lot of others.

    Re: Grand Theft Auto IV

    My brother and I were planning on picking it up for the 360 when it was in stock but we've since decided to wait until June so we can pick it up for the PS3.

    Concerning the reviews, just remember to read or watch them, don't rely too heavily on the score. There is no such thing as a perfect game, so why is there a perfect score?



    *Waits for someone to list a game they believe is perfect in every possible way*

    Just got it an hour ago. Wow. The graphics are incredible. It's only a plus that you get to be a Russian dude (since I'm part Russian).

    Anyone know if it's going to come out on PC? If not I might just have to buy a gaming console other than my PC.
