I have played the other GTAs before and while the gameplay itself is entertaining, I found it more of the same old same old from GTA3 except you play a gangster. The game was really slow and boring to get into, the load times between scenes took way too long. I feel the GTA series has run its course unless they can add something new and different to the gameplay. I'm sorry but they are going to need to do more than just update some graphics and get some celebs to do some voice overs.
This in my opinion is the worst GTA ever. Why cant they make another GTA like GTA:3. THe downfall of this game was it simplicity i got bored really fast. I give this game a seven because i love the cars and the weapons. Overall i do not recommend this game. -bostonfan
