Grand Theft Auto IV is Out and Breaking Records

We'll have to wait and see if GTAIV breaks Halo 3's record for the biggest entertainment release ever, but for the time being Grand Theft Auto is setting Review records. It's scoring quite high with nearly every magazine. The Xbox 360 Version sits at an average of 99/100 (based on 25 reviews) whereas the Playstation 3 version is at an average of 100/100 (based on 15)! Is GTA IV gaming perfection? I doubt it, but it does at least to appear to live up to the hype. I am actually shocked it is scoring so well because Grand Theft Auto was always fun, but never that gripping gameplay wise. The Stories were good, but the gameplay was always just ok for me. It appears that GTA IV is the best yet and the best game to hit the next gen consoles so far. I haven't played it yet, but it's definitely on my list now. Look for a review in the coming weeks.

Picking up my copy after work.. I've never been crazy about the past games, but this one I just have to play to see if it blows me away...

It does look pretty entertaining.. Be back tomorrow to post some thoughts...

Definitely let me know. I wasn't impressed with trailers or the hype and wasn't even going to buy it, but now I'm strongly reconsidering. I plan to rent it for the time being.

So far I'm having a blast with it... The city is done very well and how the people act is amazing!

I have only played a few hours worth, and finished around 5 or six quest.. Most of the time just seeing the sights for now.. Will dig deeper into it tonight.

You ask "Is GTA IV gaming perfection?"...I'd love to hear what you and your readers consider "gaming perfection" to be.

I started playing last night and am about 2 hours into it. I'm really impressed with the immersion of the game. The city definitely feels real and dense. The aiming system is vastly improved along with other gameplay aspects. I really like the phone. I'll review it in another week or so after I have put in a considerable amount of time.
