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.
I love the GTA series and this one certainly didn't let me down . Took me a few mins to remember all the controls but with the help of the on screen tutorials i was back in action in no time. The newly added cellphone and gps while riding in your whip is pretty tite. Highly Recommend !! Overall Rating: 10
