Exlcusive IV Review


Boy (The)

Recommended Posts

Just recieved this email:

 

 

Dear Subscriber,

 

We're sending you this email just to let you know that you'll be receiving your next issue of Official PlayStation Magazine on or around 22 April. The slight delay is a result of securing the exclusive review of Grand Theft Auto IV - meaning you'll be getting the verdict on this year's biggest game before any other magazine.

 

In this issue you'll also find a hands-on feature with the amazing Mirror's Edge, comprehensive analysis of how Blu-ray won the HD war (and how to tweak your home cinema kit), plus first looks at Tom Clancy's Hawx, Alpha Protocol and Sonic Unleashed. Oh, and we've got the latest on Timesplitters 4. Yes, really. So mark the date in your diary, and look forward to what we're confident is the best issue yet.

 

Cheers,

 

Team OPM

 

I'm guessing websites may have their reviews up before this, don't really know how it all works to be quite honest.

 

Also, Timesplitters 4. Awesome.

I think it is quite possible that any subscribers to the magazine could receive this issue with the Grand Theft Auto IV review perhaps sometime next week if we're lucky. Subscribers often get their copy a week in advance before the magazine goes on general sale in retail.

 

Fingers crossed smile.gif

Didn't you read my original post? That was from OPM to its subscribers. 22nd will be the earliest subscribers will recieve it in the post according to them (and they should know).

Opinion time ~ Who here would rather read a review, possible giving away a whole bunch of stuff that might be fun to discover yourself, or, who would rather wait so that it's a surprise?

If you look on the MyFavouriteMagazines website when you ask when your issue should get sent out, its always the wrong date and we always get it earlier than that.

 

I'd expect to see the mag on my doorstep sometime next week.

As cmacca4 said, the Official Xbox Magazine comes out April 18th, with an exclusive review then. I doubt any online reviews will be up before then, but you can probably expect them after that date. Kikizo says around 20th, so it would make sense. colgate.gif

Im not going to read any reviews. Previews are different since the people really dont know what is in the game, but with reviews most things are known and I dont even want impressions of the real stuff.

To be honest, I don't think any reviewers will spoil the game for you. It doesn't really happen with any games - most Assassins creed reviews, for example, didn't tell you the 'big spoiler' even though you found it out in the first five minutes. All the GTA reviews so far have just told you how good they are, without telling you too much. I mean, the San Andreas review never told you about the jetpak for example, so that was a suprise.

 

I just don't think the reviewers will tell you everything, instead going for the whole 'find out for yourself come April 29th' thing.

biggrin.gif Yes there is. There's also a dildo called the 'Rampaging Thomson'. Its design has many similarities to the face of the person it represents!! mercie_blink.gif

 

Anyways back on topic: im in two minds about reading reviews, really dont want to ruin anything but I am curious.

i prefer to find all the stuff by myself. much more exciting.

 

then reading: in X mission everything looks great but then cops surrond X place! And then ill be in game like: ok this is where the cops show now....

 

i mean takes the fun out of it.

Doubt very much there'll be gameplay footage on it. The discs are always pretty lame.

I just realized something and this is why I was confused it's the Official XBOX Magazine UK which has a review sooner, the magazine goes on general sale April 19th. So I am thinking we could see that review this week perhaps? monocle.gif
