Xbox world 360 review

Recommended Posts

Couldn't find any topics on this so thought i'd share. Got the mag this morning and they've got a very positive review. Reading it, i dont even think they were including multiplayer as their reviewing it next issue. Anywayz, they gave it 98%, their highest ever rating.

 

+ oscar worthy dialogue

+ unfeasibly rich gameworld

+ inspired mission design

 

Conclusion : Everything we were entitled to expect, and yet somehow impossibly more.

 

"Rockstar have surpassed themselves, delivering unquestionably the definitive GTA and perhaps the greatest videogame of all time. Take your bow fellas."

 

Now i'm even more hyped for this game, which i didn't think was possible. Gonna be a long six days...

The only reason the OB got 97 aswell is because of the value.

 

GTA 4 Pwns everything in the world. biggrin.gif

Yeah, the ratings they gave those games is pretty fair. I do agree that OB got a higher rating because of how many games you get, but honestly, I'd take Bioshock over HL2.

 

But a 98 for gta is awesome. The anticipation is taking years off my life wink.gif

scans plz

Wtf, He can't post scans f*ckwit.

I'm actually quite pleased that he didn't post scans, saved me the effort to remove them.

 

That, and the topic has little chance of being locked and people can actually discuss it.

i only like the neutral reviews, but one hting i know is:

 

Wii is for poor people, 360 for middle range, and the PS3 is for the snobs (or rich people).

WTF??

 

I have a PS3 and a Wii, what does that say about me?

 

I'll tell you, i like to play games online with my mates (PS3) and also play with my family (Wii)

 

Don’t generalize, it is insulting.

 

ps Chris Moyles (the fat one from Radio1) has a XBOX and he is worth mega bucks!

That's not fair ratings. I had the Orange Box for several months. I would give it an 81%, 20% comes from having 5 games in one. Portal and Team Fortress 2 weren't very good. The single player games weren't worth playing several times through, and TF2 was unbalanced (even for a class based game) and not very fun. Huge spawn times made it very boring and on LIVE it had HORRIBLE latency. 10 years of development and we still get an unfinished game.

 

BioShock. It sucked. I played for 45 minutes then got bored. Way overrated.

 

Gears of War was OK, but definitely not worthy of a 94%. Story was confusing, even for the 3rd time through. Online was terrible, lagg and the only way to win was to abuse the cover system.

 

The only one in the top 5 I can say (in that group) should be there, and with a proper rating is Vegas.

 

These are my opinions and my opinions only, unless you agree with me then be free to defend viciously by all means.

 

I think GTAIV should be a rating like 98%, but I'll have to wait and see. But because you can only play multiplayer on LIVE or PSN, no LAN, I'm quite pissed at that. That is a big thing that Rockstar should have included. I am VERY pissed off at that.

Well OK, the main reason why I'm so extremely pissed off that there is no LAN is because, while they say is has been confirmed that it is online only, I don't fully know if that is the case. I just hope that they are wrong. I'm the only one in my area that has LIVE that is going to get GTAIV, but I have to play online, which as we all know is full of sh*t and frustration etc. and I can't play LAN with my true mates with no horsesh*t and lag and unplayable servers.

Can someone who read the review kindly do a simple bullet point list of new things mentioned - but NO spoiler version?
