"Too much hype"4.0 starson by swiggins
Pros: looks pretty enough-huge open world gameplay will give many hours of play
Cons: PS3 version is pretty much a dog-too may issues compared to the 360 version
Summary: Ya know, I wanted to like this game, I really did, but I think from now on I am going to go for a little bit less reality in my video games. I really don't mind shooting up aliens or vampires and monsters, but when I am playing as a scum-bag, and committing crimes, that's where I have to stop.
Next time, if they want to inject a little bit more reality into the game, how about having Roman get arrested and getting abused in prison for 5 to 10, oh and how about doing it in real time to really show these kids just how glamorous crime really is. . . .I don't know when I became such a prude, but having kids under 18 playing this game is just unacceptable. . . Unfortunately, a majority of people playing are under 18, and heavily influenced by this nonsense........The game for me moves too slow, and the dark look is outright depressing. The score I am giving it is for the 360 version which pretty much runs without a hitch. The PS3 version not only is visually choppy, but is prone to freezing and the online, (when you can get online) is not as good as it's 360 cousin. I would give the PS3 version a 7, . due to the issues that come with it. I am beginning to think however that this is a PS3 problem with the freezing, not a GTA problem because a week earlier I experienced the same kind of freeze ups with the MGO beta. If you like killing innocent people and committing crime, this game is for you, personally, I'll stick with a less real game.
