Mini Review

Graphics/Physics - 10/10
The graphics are amazing. You shoot someone through their windshield and you can see blood on it. Sure there are pop ins and such, but really, it is one of the most beautiful games today. You must fly a helicopter through the city, its amazing, and then jump out and try to land on a car... those physics are incredible.

Control - 8.5/10
The controls are tough, especially those used to the PS versions of GTA. It takes a while to get used to the controls for driving especially, its very tricky to learn how fast/slow to take corners. They could be touched up, but the gameplay its self makes up for this.

Overall - 10/10
A must have for everyone, end of story. Its fun just walking down the street and punching someone, or going to the bowling alley and punching someone trying to bowl. The smallest things are just incredibly fun here!!

That sucks. I've done a few Vlad missions with no problems (knocks on wood.) I predict a dead console in your future. GTA seems to really push the hardware so if a unit is getting ready to die it could push it over the edge.

I wouldn't doubt it, I have had it since September/October-ish, and has recently been acting up a little bit. I was talking to one of my friends, and she said her X Box made this beeping sound, then it died not to long after, well I was playing GTA yesterday and it did the beeping sound (kinda like if you push to many keys at once on a normal comp) but nothing happened, but I am nervous now, but I think I'm due from how much Halo and Rock Band I have played from it.

But that has been the only time it has frozen though, other then that it is running perfect.

Yep, this game teaches you how to kill.... unlike half of the other mainstream games that are won by killing others :rolleyes:

GTA 4 is awesome. I have only played Halo 3 for like 20 minutes since GTA 4 came out and that is amazing because I have been playing Halo for like 6 months straight.

BTW, hey Oof, is Honda still hiring?
