first off, let me just say that this game is not for the younger crowd. i am not just referring to the swearing and violence either (which it actually does not have that much of overall). i'm actually referring to the story line and the pace of the game. if u rent it, do not expect a fast action mindless belligerent game like grand theft auto 5 (which i happened to love also). instead, expect something incredibly slow paced but at the same time very deep and thought provoking. it is true that u have to a mindless amount of stealing and beating up people, but i think that mixes in very well within the story. it does a very good job of building up the suspense that the story needs to be able to appropriately explain the back story of the main character, and the trials and tribulations that the main character not only goes through in this game, but also in past ones as well. personally, i have no problems with the graphics. sure, they are not award winning, but they are good enough that it does not slow down the progress of the game in any way. the only reason i would give it a 9 is because of the loose controls. they do make it difficult when u are trying to jump from one ledge to the other, or sneak up on a guard, but like with any game, once u get used to it, it's no problem. so for u older gamers out there, i highly recommend at least renting the game, and then buy it!
