GTA IV review thread! - Page 4

post #91 of 270
Why is everyone so hung up on the numerical score? So many reviewers have stated that 10/10 doesn't mean the game is perfect. It just means they believe the game is representative of the very best of gaming at the time of review. So many people have attached perfection to the highest scores and I don't get it. I certainly don't interpret 5 star film reviews do mean the movie is flawless. I interpret it to mean said film is a VERY fine film.

10/10 is big. I have never heard of that before and I have been paying attention to ratings for years.
post #93 of 270
Why do people always freak out about a rating when they haven't played the game yet.

Ocarina of time was a 10.
Perfect Dark was a 10

Those games were 10s because they were so far ahead of the rest of the field. Games will never be perfect. By some peoples logic a College professor should never give a 100 on a test. No one knows everything about a subject.

Please get over the whole 10 score problem. For 9 out of 1o purchasers this game will be worth every penny. It will advance the general idea of what a game should be. It will take the industry a long time to reach this level. Still 1 out of ten will hate it because it isn't their type of game. That is ok.

Hopefully we have another 10 with Metal Gear Sold 4 this June.

Are u sure they were 10's I never saw that? What are you talking about I just checked. Perfect dark wasnt even a 9. It is a big deal. Im not saying they're not full of it but nothing has ever been a 10

Sure if they base it only on the single player. The way this beta is going and the game is supposed to ship in less than 2 months, then I wouldn't expect it to be. The beta has been a huge dissapointment. Clunky and slow.

Unless everyone is referring to a different review site, this is from IGN:

Perfect Dark actually received a 9.8.

OOT did, in fact, receive a perfect 10.

wow, just saw this: 10/10 from IGN.....that's crazy! I mean I played Vice City for a little while and it was fun and all, but wow 10/10 for GTA IV huh? I'll be checking this out but you know what? there's other games I like better or are anticipating much more than the new GTA. We'll see if it really is so much better than anything elso out there. I will admit however that that graphic they're using of the chick licking the lollipop gives me wood lol j/k
post #100 of 270
no, you're note J/K, and neither am i; we all want to get with them cartoons. and they know it

Been playing for several hours now and it is fun. I would also agree with most of IGN's review except for graphics. NO WAY does GTA4 deserve a 10 for graphics, NO WAY!!!!!. I would rate it an 8 or 9 at the most. Most on this forum will find out for themselves on Tuesday and I would be shocked if anyone else thinks it deserves a 10. Pics below to prove I have and am playing it.

Nothing is wrong with it, it just doesn't deserve a 10 in terms of graphics. Call of Duty 4 deserves a 10, GTA4 is nowhere near that level. My opinion is that GTA4 is one level better than your average Xbox 360 game. It's still great fun but not what I had hoped in the graphics department.

Call of Duty 4's graphics aren't that great. The textures are all low resolution. The shadows are pretty low resolution, as well. And it is only running at 1024x600. They had to cut a lot of stuff down in order to get the frame rate running at 60fps.

It was the right call for the game, because the 60fps frame rate really works in it. But I definitely wouldn't call the graphics in it a perfect 10.

Regardless, you can't really compare the graphics in COD4 with GTA4. One game is a game with small contained maps, and the other is a game with an expansive city with a ton of AI. Open world games are always more demanding on the hardware than other types of games. So when they grade the graphics, they have to take the genre into account.

There was a Zelda game that scored a perfect 10.

HAHAHAHAHAHHA an 8!!!! I have to disagree with you on that. People stop being concerned about the graphics score. I rented CoD4 yesterday and to me I like GTA4 better in the graphics department.

Like I said earlier graphics are only PART of the equation. You can not sit here and say the game is not awesome.

Please do not try to judge the graphics off of this stream

If I hadn't already played the game I would be suspect looking at the quality of that stream.

Don't forget to mention it is a live cam feed and no one should suspect it to run at 30fps.
post #111 of 270
Well I'm going to judge it and it looks pretty sweet. The draw distance is great and I couldn't see any real framerate problems even in a heli with a what appears to be drunk pilot or he dropped his roach.
post #112 of 270
Unless Ign changed their rating of perfect dark cause if you look now its 8.4. Weird
post #113 of 270
Here's what I want to know: did they fix the goofy enemy spawn distance that plagued all previous GTA games? (Where you had a reasonable spawn field in front, but almost nothing behind you, and a mafioso for example could magically appear on your back and blow you away before you could see him).

They're referring to the original Perfect Dark on N64, not the inferior Perfect Dark Zero on 360.
post #115 of 270
For those of you who haven't played the game and think it doesn't deserve a 10.....wait until you play the game. I've put in 13 hours and I'm 24% through the game and it deserves a 10 in every aspect....especially the graphics, why? For the scope and size of this game, I don't see how the graphics could be much better and still have the depth that this game does. Of course a Call of Duty and Gears of War are more detailed, but those games are essentially on rails. For a sandbox game like GTA, the level of detail over such a massive area is ridiculous. I can put money on this being the game of the year, hands down, it's THAT good.

I never reserved this game. Do you guys think there will be lots of copies everywhere?

YES. I didn't reserve/pre-order Halo 3 and got it at Wally World at midnight of all places.
post #118 of 270
OK for those of you who have played the game.
From the Gametrailers review (http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/NewsCom-139798.aspx?CT=1 ) it kind of seems like maybe you are playing a sympathetic anti-hero type (focusing his aggression on other bad guys, like the Punisher, Riddick and such). Is this true or does your character have to be just a loser scumbag who goes around shaking down/murdering innocent people in order to progress in the game?
post #119 of 270
Gametrailers gave it a 9.8.

Click Here for the HD Review. I'll be honest, I was so caught in with schoolwork over the past month I haven't had time to game, GTA IV is going to change that.
post #120 of 270
I've now seen the game being played (and played a little myself) for about 8 hours. When you see the city, and experience the environment, you will agree that the graphics are a 10.
