Worth playing.

*This review started on 8/18/2008 and took a few entries.*

Yup, I'm that one person who hasn't played this game. True, I did try it way back in May but I had other games on my mind then. It didn't help that I hated how the textures would load slowly or the draw distance was messed up. That and I didn't care for the car physics. I know they did one update for MP but maybe they did another to the textures because I rarely see it now and the draw distance is fine. I had to get use to the cars but it's not much of a issue now. I also decided to play this game now because I have two weeks before Mercs 2 comes out so I needed a long game.

Still playing and I'm enjoying it much more after unlocking the 2nd big island. The 3rd island is a bit of a let down if you ask me. There is a couple things I wish would be fixed but the game is still a solid 9.0. I would raise it to 9.5 if they fixed those issues. I have about 15-20 missions left and have done most of the side missions like get cars, be a delievery guy, assasin, ect ect. I doubt the game will last me till Mercs 2 comes out but I'm looking forward to just messing around after the story is done.

Finished it up and was pretty much disappointed in the last few missions. I plan on going back and getting those 30 cars and just messing around but thats not a high priority right now. I do plan on busting it out later this month when we have our monthly 360 LAN party.

    Grand Theft Auto in my eyes is one of the best game series of all time and is destined to be a classic remembered twenty years down the road and beyond. It was to my great joy that Grand Theft Auto IV was hinted at some three years ago and what a journey has it been. Thankfully on Tuesday, April 29th 2008 the game I waited oh so long for finally came out after a couple of mind numbingly annoying delays. I had huge expectations from this game as it garnered the first 10 from Gamespot and IGN in a...

    Fantastic game with only a few minor problems. 0

    Very good game. Many people have already explored what's good about it, I'll try and pick apart the things that I didn't like as much. The only problems I really had were with the targeting system. On occassion, the auto-lock would lock onto somebody far away, or a pedestrian, while there was somebody right next to me attacking me. Kind of annoying, but easily fixed by letting the trigger a bit looser and using the manual aim. Still, it's a bit frustrating dying this way. Another problem was w...
