AMAZING GAME... Almost Perfect

First off, let me start by saying this is by far the best game of 2008 so far, and possibly the best 360 game period. It is extremely fun classic GTA mayhem that you can play for hours on end and still not be bored. Instead of going on and on about the awesomeness of this, I'll explain why this isn't a perfect 10 for me. The first reason is ladders. Although simple instructions would tell you to press Y to climb a ladder, you'll spend a long time trying to get centered JUST right to get on it, it can get frustrating. Another thing is the online play, although amazing gameplay wise, is still a little flawed when it comes to pregame and finding a game. It tends to favor booting people over splitting up parties, which can be VERY annoying. Also, if you want to go back to the pregame room and stop playing online with your party, you all have to exit out and start a new game, which is slightly annoying. Besides those little issues, this game is amazing. I just gave it a 9 because to get a 10 to me, a game has to be PERFECT. All the problems are fixable though, so I'm hoping for a patch to make this game perfect soon. Oh, another thing, I've played for 10 hours and have yet too see a bicycle? Did they take them out of this game? That's a shame...

Great game, a real step up

Everything about this game is great graphics, AI, driving...

I only dislike some of the controls. Most are fine, but, for example, I would much rather have jump be A, not X, and running be (L) pushed down.

Overall, a great game to buy/rent.

Good, but not great.

First off yes the game delivers the fun that only GTA can so it is worth playing. The reason I say "good not great" is that it lacks in a few key areas. The graphics are not that spectacular and the city has a "fuzzy" look to it and there are lots of pop ups which are really anoying if your driving a fast car. Speaking of cars, the handling of them feels like you are driving a boat or are on ice. Lots of people are raving about how alive the city is and I will say that it is but lets face it you spend more time driving and running around that listening to the city. There are improvements that were needed and there but to sum it up yes the game is alot of fun and for the most part solid but I think that Rockstar in there quest to one up themselves lost focus on a few key areas that prevent this game from being a solid 10.
