I still have to beg to differ.

Here is the April Issue:

It says "GRAND THEFT AUTO IV: Hands on with the game that will rule 2008" There is NO review, and none of those pictures appear in the magazine.




Here is the May Issue:

It says "GRAND THEFT AUTO: 10+ Multiplayer Modes? Co-op? HOLY $#&!" IT is just a Multiplayer Hands on. there is no review, no score, and none of the pictures show up in the Mag again.

All of you are morons who don't have the time or patience to read what you criticize.

THERE WAS NOTHING NEGATIVE WRITTEN ABOUT DLC.

There is a "?" next to it. Not a negative. Read closer.

Also the reviewer felt that there were too many "FILLER" missions... and he felt that it hurt the game more then it helped it... hence... he felt it was negative.

NONE of you have played the game... he has. Maybe there really is too many "FILLER" missions.

And to be arguing over .5 is ridiculous. A 9.5/10 is AMAZING by any standard.

Grow up. The games not perfect. Buy it or don't. Just don't complain about a 9.5 review score. Really.

I bought Halo 3 - played for two weeks and never picked it up again.
I bought Bioshock. Beat the 1st level and haven't touched it since.

*Mostly due to Call of Duty 4 being the best FPS of our time. Although the DLC was too little -  too late for my taste.

Stop bitchin' kids.

Hey mommy. Why don't you stop telling us we can't have an opinion?


Everyones entitled to an opinion. But it's when people make half assed assumptions that void said opinion.

Everyones bashing the reviewer for the wrong reasons claiming that he thought that GTA IV had "too many missions".

What he actually said was that the game had "too many FILLER missions".

Kids don't read very well on these forums and love jumping to conclusions.


I'm GLAD it got a 9.5

I do have to say it's sketchy how this is apparently the only person in the entire world with the OXM US issue. Every link for this review from everywhere else links to this guy.

They took off .5 because the story starts slow? And that there are too many "filler" missions? Sounds a little weak, and just an excuse to take something off.

I say its officially been deemed fake now. The May issue of OXM says nothing about REVIEW on the cover. Its fake.

Added: http://www.oxmonline.com/current_issue Read the cover. It is not a review.

Everybody got on OXM's case last year for giving out too many 10/10's. So they are going to be tougher this year.

Bioshock, Halo 3, Mass Effect and CoD4 all got 10's. And none of them deserved it, to be honest. CoD4 was the best of that bunch, I would have given it a 9.5/10.

Great job posting 2 old issues. That proves a lot.

I usually get new OXM's between the 20-25 of the month. So I should be getting the June issue any day now. This guy obviously got it a day or two before me.

I highly doubt that very much seeing as I've never seen nor gotten an issue over a month before the actual month comes around.

This guy and nobody else? Usually when a new GTA4 review pops up in a mag, several different sources come out with scans in a short span of time. That's what happened with the OXM UK and OPM UK reviews.

I'm not saying this isn't real, but I am saying it's very odd how not only is he literally the only person providing scans this time around, but they're all the size of a thumbnail. Coincidence?

So I'm lying and making sh*t up? Or am I just crazy?

Please. I don't have time nor the desire to sit here and make up blatant lies. I'll leave that to the kids.

I've had the May issue that A Kitten posted for a month already, magazines always reach subscribers at least a week before they hit newstands.

The scans from the May issue were posted on March 26th. It's right there on GTA4.net's front page. So there goes your little theory about issues not coming out over a month in advance.

So the May issue first reached people on the 26th of March. Why are you people finding it so hard to believe the June Issue has reached people April 21st?

Okay, it's real, that helps nobody. How about some details from the review? Do they give an examples of the so-called "filler" missions? Do they elaborate on why they feel the game starts off "too slowly"? A score of 9.5 and a very vague summary doesn't help anyone.

The majority of you people blowing the score and authenticity of the issue out of vast proportions can't be serious. Honestly, who actually gives a damn on whether or not the game receives a 9.5 while Halo 3 receives a ten? It's not going to matter when you're actually playing the game.

Halo 3 is the most bloated, overrated piece of sh*t ever created. The SP is OK and the MP is easily surpassed by CoD4. The only GREAT thing about the game is the customization features i.e. Forge.
