I usually read reviews before buying a game but never have I read one before buying an R* game since GTA 3.

But will you read reviews before buying this game or will you buy it without reading one, expecting it to be great as with all R* games?

If you need a review for a GTA then you shouldn't buy it at all (to those who will read it, not OP)

I don't read reviews. I can tell what I like from all of the pre-release material available.

As far as I know, at least with GTA IV, they only release reviews after the game's out don't they?
I enjoy going back and watching reviews after I've completed a game, so that I can just sort of.... enjoy the opinions regardless of how I felt about it.

Most games I do watch at least Gamespot and IGN's video reviews before thinking about buying.

This reminds me of a game called "Haze"

Everyone expected it to one of the greatest games ever before it released but look what happened to it. It sucked

I'm really surprised at the number of people who have voted no, I won't let reviews dictate what I think of the game but reviews for me get me super hyped that's why I read them, gives me something to do in the last week in waiting for a game. I'm actually looking forward to reading reviews providing they're spoiler free biggrin.gif

Chances are reviews won't go live until release day and by that time I'd already have the game. If however Gametrailers post there video reviews before I get the game I'll watch it. I'll possibly read any other reviews to but avoid spoilers. After I've got the game I'll be more than happy to read/watch any reviews just to see there opinion. Reviews don't decide if I buy a game or not though. Least of all a R* game. I've already made a pre order and paid for GTA V so.

pre-ordered as soon as i heard it was coming out, guess i'm a GTA fanboy heh.

i could care less what a review says, i'll buy every GTA. if it's shiite it just goes into the collection.

I will read some reviews if they are released before. I don't always agree with everything they say, I just find it interesting to read. It doesn't spoil gameplay for me because nothing compares to when I first start playing myself.

Technically you haven't as they can't charge you until the item ships. If you/they cancel then you get your money back

I always read reviews and meta-score, and count mostly on Game Informer,
as they seem to have the same scores I give to games when I finish them.

Not only won't I read it, I don't even want to look at the scores they give the game.

I think that reading the reviews will be risky, since they may go into too much detail about certain missions, or reveal story elements I want to experience myself (no matter how small of a spoiler they may seem). And, as for the score, I don't want other people's opinions influencing my experience with the game one way or the other.

Yeah I will. I just want to be sure it won't be the pain in the ass GTA IV was on a technical level on PC. I know it most probably won't but I have to be cautious until I get me one of those money-growing trees.
If it happens to be the same as GTA IV though(which I highly doubt), I'll just wait until I get my hands on a console. It's just not worth the trouble.

Yes I will be reading the reviews but only for entertainment, I know this game will be great and no review will make me think otherwise!

GameStop already has my $160+... Just gotta walk in and grab it. Usually I wait for it to come in the mail(which, yes, you can't pay until it ships) but I want this game ASAP.

I will just to see what them reviewers think about the game. There ought to be a COD reviewer *cough*IGN*cough* who will give it a lower score than everyone else, and it's worth laughing at their reasons.

On topic, I don't like reading reviews before buying and playing a game, because this could impact and reflect on my personal judgement.
