IGN always gives any Rockstar title at least an 8 out of 10, even if it doesn't deserve it, so this isn't surprising.
Not saying this game doesn't deserve it though, just saying that IGN is pretty irrelevant. --- I am a dedicated member of the "Walter Sullivan Is Bad-Ass" group!!! I am the true originator of the Cookie Demon theory on the SH2 and 3 boards.
^Agreed. IGN really needs to stick with reviewing movies, tv shows and comics because the video game review are so lame nowadays. But I think there review of MP3 is probably spot-on. Can't wait to get my copy TONIGHT! --- And now there's this guy.
i might have to take this review with a grain of salt. most of the article just rambles about obvious things like persons, places, and story. in the end the lowest score they gave was in gameplay itself so that doesnt truly reflect the 9/10 score they give it IMHO (especially since only one score was given a 9 and that was in presentation.
to be fair though none of it is a deal breaker though. whether its a 7,8,9, or even 10 it is a negligible difference in most games. the number system for reviews never made sense to me. this isnt the Olympics.
I could personally give a **** if they gave it 0's across the board and revealed that the game makes your PS3 self destruct as soon as you beat it. I'd still be in line at midnight lol. --- "This, is my bro. This is his party. He's the guest of honor. Today, is his birthday..."
I agree with taking IGN reviews with a pinch of salt, but as i have been looking forward to this game for ages it's nice to see a good score. I think that no matter how much someone doesn't pay attention to reviews, if it is negative it will always put a bit of doubt there! --- psn-normskisan
