Long time lurker, first time poster. Howdy.

Yikes, they didn't pull their punches, and I've got to be brutally honest, I agree with them. There's that awkward point where real excitement gets hit with the harsh reality of disappointment, which is exactly how I feel with this game. I won't go over the top, but I almost feel insulted at how watered down some parts are. Anyway, here's the review:

Ah well, from what I'm reading this game isn't as good as I thought it would be.

Still I'll judge for myself I think.

The review fails to mention ANY of the game`s improvements to previous entries..

Hell, these guys gave GTA IV 10/10..

Any review that gave that game a 10/10 and AC III a 7 (How the hell ?) deserves no legitimate "take into consideration" in my opinion

Not too shabby - some slightly lower ones than expected though.. but over all not too bad?

Like Mr_Shade said it's not geting many bad reviews.

Er, I think that's the point; they don't feel it improves but actually is weaker in many regards. Comparing it to other games they have reviewed is moot, too. I happen to agree with their sentiment, i.e. the pacing is poor at many point, the AI is entry level, and the general structure is messy.

I guess all the other sites that gave it 9s and 10s are all blind then ?? or maybe this reviewer just couldnt play the game..

In the end, reviews are opinions. I`ll reserve judgement till I play it myself, because do not tell me that there happens to be no improvements.. Seriously none ?? None at all ?? BS..

And, why exactly is comparing this review to others they`v done is moot ? Maybe because it does not support your opinion..

GTA:IV was deserving of a 10 IMO, need to play AC 3 first before I decide on that I guess.

GTA IV ? 10 ? Look at San andreas.. did GTA IV improve on any of it ?? Hell.. it had less missions and a shorter story and waaaay less things to do out side of the story, and the bugs, my god don't get me started..

I guess 10s are only reserved for rockstar games

At least I can go back and play GTA:IV SA has terrible targeting and health and everything even down to driving and the level of detail was improved in IV.

Oh yeah and it actually had a decent story with good characters.

Hold up, mate..

San Andreas actually got 10s and now you`re arguing differences in hardware Generation of Consoles...

Argue with concepts, mate... a sequel should improve on aspects of the previous installments. Does GTA IV have a longer, or at least comparable, story ? No.. Does it have the level of customization ? No... is it of comparable size in terms of playable area ? No... does it have Bugs ? YES...

San Andreas was critically acclaimed as a master pice. I don't see how GTA IV is a master piece too..

I just said above how it improved the franchise, but whatever I doubt we're going to change each others minds.

It's okay though opinions can be wrong =D

No Opinion is wrong..

Merely disagreeable, but I believe we can agree that I`ll enjoy AC III just as much as i`v enjoyed every AC game..

Yeah, currently reviewers complaints are there is too much in the game when if there was less it would have all been perfect.

Not an issue in my book.

You really can't discuss things with fanboys. I should have known better. Sigh.
