+ good graphics
+ new features
+ dlc
+ new physics motion
+ well scaled city
+ some cars are spot on
+ boats are fantastic
---------------------------------
- same old sh*t
- piss poor frame fluctuation
- crap server options
- lag lag and a bit more lag in laggy mp servers ok some can be ok with a bit of extra lagtastical dust over the top
- cars and just lights when looking down from high building
- empty city... is this based on i am legend
- pop up ville
- physics more or less follows the same pattens
- niko runs like a spanner
- climb buildings huh what when a sticky hand mod comes out
- cut scenes are poor looking
- hand combat is a messy affair

Just a few light comments that spring to mind but the game can have its quality moments for sure.
After playing about 20% and skipping cut scenes i find myself looking at a revamped gta instead of a mind blowing new game.
it's just lacking the special something like when III came along and blow us crazy with a outstandingly brand new twist to gaming.

All of your +'s are right.

The -'s are questionnable.

The hand to hand combat is excellent
Euphoria is great
The new climbing system is great

Youre a possible moron

Dude, I'm sorry to disagree, but the cut-scenes are amazingly well put together. Absolutely classic voice acting. I haven't skipped one yet.

My only digs so far is the inability to mod cars, tweak under/over steering and the lack of a Custom Music option, but even those don't really bother me that much anymore.

MP could have done with a localised text chat option for those who don't have mic's though.

You can't expect IV to be as revolutionary as III. III took us from 2D to 3D, a totally new type of game in the 'sandbox' genre and it was amazing. I'll comment on your comments now...

+ good graphics - agree
+ new features - yep
+ dlc - we have none yet, we don't know if its good or not
+ new physics motion - great!
+ well scaled city - duh
+ some cars are spot on - I think the cars are amazing! great detail
+ boats are fantastic - need to ride on one, not at my home so I have to wait to do that
---------------------------------
- same old sh*t - no it isn't, but I guess I know what you mean
- piss poor frame fluctuation - ??? frame rates are fine for me
- crap server options - I hate the server options
- lag lag and a bit more lag in laggy mp servers ok some can be ok with a bit of extra lagtastical dust over the top - Its no COD4 that is for sure
- cars and just lights when looking down from high building - ok, no comment
- empty city... is this based on i am legend - sometimes its empty, sometimes its wonderful - check the time of day when its empty and its probably 4:00 in the morning
- pop up ville - nope, it doesn't bother me, its very minimal
- physics more or less follows the same pattens - yeah, thats because physics don't change, its physics, a set of rules that govern motion
- niko runs like a spanner - don't know what a spanner is
- climb buildings huh what when a sticky hand mod comes out - whatever
- cut scenes are poor looking - WHAT?!?!?! especially close up to people, the cutscenes are AWESOME!
- hand combat is a messy affair - agree, it sucks but that doesn't bother me... i like dodging and comboing someone to the ground

No offense, but it doesn't really matter. Why are you on the forum if you don't like the game?

Because he likes to talk about the game, get other people's opinions, and maybe find out people share his opinions... don't expect everyone on these forums to like the game, I would think that would be rather boring...

Yeah, but he is starting this post to rile people up, especially when he said "After playing about 20% and skipping cut scenes", hardly into the game and you hardly have unlocked most of the better missions, and you skip the cut scenes? How can you complain about the cut scenes if you skip them? And everyone complains about empty city, but I have had the roads jammed at certain times that make some missions more difficult.

You clearly haven't played enough yet, empty city? Try driving around star junction, its 4 lanes each way packed with cars, how is that empty.

+ good graphics Yes. But, my SDTV makes jaggies eat car edges.
+ new features Yay, brick throwing!
+ dlc I'm a PS3'er.
+ new physics motion Perty.
+ well scaled city It is.
+ some cars are spot on Yes, they are.
+ boats are fantastic I have yet to experience boats.
---------------------------------
- same old sh*t It is in some aspects. That's why it's called a franchise.
- piss poor frame fluctuation That's only in MP for me.
- crap server options True.
- lag lag and a bit more lag in laggy mp servers ok some can be ok with a bit of extra lagtastical dust over the top Sometimes, yes.
- cars and just lights when looking down from high building ..Huh?
- empty city... is this based on i am legend ...No. I think it's perfect.
- pop up ville I've seen about two pop-ups so far.
- physics more or less follows the same pattens Maybe you're hitting a person the same way every time.
- niko runs like a spanner What's a spanner?
- climb buildings huh what when a sticky hand mod comes out ..More confusion. I do hate that fire escape ladders are non-climbable. But, really...I have no idea what you wrote.
- cut scenes are poor looking Sometimes...but, as stated above, look at my TV.
- hand combat is a messy affair I agree. I don't use it much, though. SA was probably better...

My main complaint in this game is that there are hardly any enterable interiors. It's pathetic. R* lied to us.

If I know my British English, a spanner is a wrench. No idea if "running like a wrench" is a British idiom I've never encountered or, more likely, the OP is an idiot.

No, a spanner is a retarded person. You can take the definition of spanner as "wrench" and twist it slightly to become "tool." You get the idea.

Ah. Well, I think Niko runs great.

The OP really just doesn't realize that that's how people naturally run.
