this game looks and feels like a movie but you know it s a game its by rockstar which is good its open world which is good and you get to be a detective what else could be better only thing is if you had a choice to be good or bad cop but other then that you make choices and the choices you make reflect how the story plays out and this game is so good youll forget its a game at all

The first thing I noticed when I start this game is the great inclusion of AI conversation. I know not many people mention this, but your character (Primarily Cole Phelps) will talk to people on the scene while your playing, which is rarily done in games unless it is vital to the story. The next thing I saw was the great motion of Cole Phelps. The AI, however, was not as good because they would still walk on a mine cart line or follow directly behind you. The cars are accurate, the city immersive, and the interrogations oh-so realistic. There are many features in this game that are amazing, such as using your notebook to review clues, suspects, victims, and locations. The story is fantastic, and the ending was one of the few where I kept thinking over it and how it related to the story, even when I shipped the game back. All in all, it has a few flaws, but this game is GREAT for renting, but not as much for purchase.

I just want this game to END now. Its sooooooooo boring. It does the same thing over and over and over. Im on VICE now, and I just want this game to end. Theres nothing really hooking me to the main character or the story. Somebody dies, find clues, chase bad guys on rooftops, boooooooooooooooo! Gimme a break.
It was a good game until it started repeating itself.
