    To start off, I thought the game takes too long to install and load up.

    Once you finally manage to get past the loading, the game starts to take off. The controls are more or less the same as the previous GTA's. The driving controls however, I thought left a little more to be desired. To me ... Read Full Review

    This is a good game and when they fix it it will be great, but Certainly not a ten. How can a reviewer say in one breath its "not without its flaws", and then give it a 10. I thought 10 meant perfect. I have only played... Read Full Review

    Great game, not the best game ever. If you like the series, get it. If you don't, your mind won't change.

    I bought this and want to write a quick review for those on the fence. Graphics: 8 They are okay; the face and character models are decent at best. The story flows off the characters and I find it disappointing the... Read Full Review

    It's more then you can dream about in some ways

    the freedom you have to do is simply amazing the features they have added are just totally redicuous (in a good way) the AI is megatons better. The only improvement they needed is. They should not have lied on the back o... Read Full Review
