What I want from a GTA V review

How does the driving feel?

Has combat (shooting) been refined? Does shooting someone in the game carry some weight, or is it as satisfying as landing a well placed block in Tetris?

Would the core gameplay hold up as a AAA title on its own? Imagine playing the game without all of the extra features, such as sky diving and other mini-games. Is playing the game from beginning to end without the fluff nearly as enjoyable as "The Last of Us" or "Assassins Creed 3"?

The story... is it excellent? I felt that GTAIV had an OK story, but not spectacular. Is it as interesting as "Red Dead Redemption"? How much am I going to care about the characters by the time the game is through?

Is this a watershed game or just an improvement on the GTA series? Is this a game that redefines the genre?
Listen... I love the Halo series. I'm addicted to multiplayer Halo, can't get enough of it. But I'm willing to admit that there hasn't been a truly important game since Halo 2. The rest have been little more than expansion packs. Is that the case with GTA V? Or is it something more?

Am I asking a lot? Damn straight. GTA V is being released just before a new generation of consoles is released. It better be damn excellent to keep me from pawning my consoles now when I could get the most for them. If it ends up being little more than GTA IV with a bigger map, more cars, and more mini-games I'll be pissed. If it's one of the greatest games I've ever played I'll be satisfied.

Here's to hoping that I have less in common with Mick Jagger than I thought.

This website will implode if McShea reviews it and doesn't give it a 10/10.

I probably won't even read any reviews honestly. I want to find out if the game is good by playing it. I don't feel the need to wait for reviews/scores for this one. I'm not going to be bothered by what GameSpot gives it, which I have almost no doubt will be a 9 or 10.

The lack of female protagonists would make her give it a 0/10

From what I can tell, reviews will be posted a day before the game comes out.
