this game is pretty freaking amazing. the story is just awesome, even though I lost track of it towards the end, but the clever script keeps you intrigued throughout. the music --oh, the music! They have awesome hip hop songs during these amazing battle scenes that just combine so well. I would absolutely give this game a 10, the only reason why I gave it a 9 is because there were some glitches. One being where when I would hide behind a wall, I would get stuck in that position, thus prompting me to roll away, then get some bullet shots to my dude. that annoyed the living daylights out of me. But disregarding that, I would have given this game a 10. Trust me, I wanna keep it because it's so good.

This game is a great new installment in the series. Rockstar has put together a game with great gameplay and a compelling story.
The story is told to us through flashy cutscenes and in-game narration that make the player feel as though they are watching a movie rather than playing a game. This isn't bad at all though. It gives the game a nice feel to it and a style all its own. The story is solid, spanning through years of Max's later years and although it is a bit confusing, it can be fully understood in one playthrough.
The gameplay is much like an average Rockstar game. Shooting is simple and the cover mechanic works well. The game remains challenging no matter what difficulty you play on, but never too frustrating, which is a plus. Painkillers for health aren't very hard to find as well, seeing as they are highlighted with a green glow, so health isn't completely scarce, but you do have to look around for it. If you're having too much difficulty and dying a lot, the game will recognize this, and give you extra painkillers to heal yourself.
Overall, the game was amazing. I found a few bugs where the audio would cut off during a cutscene, or your gun would disappear, but these are minor bugs, and can be worked around. Although the game is amazing, it is not perfect, due to the lack of replayability in story and a few minor bugs.
