    I see most of the AEH 'This will run my life!' fan boys stopped playing it after about 2 weeks. I did similarly.

    Technically it's probably one of the best next gen games to be released thus far. I don't think there's any debating that. There's so much going on, so smoothly, you simply have to appreciate it. It also offers great depth in a pixel adaptation of 'real life'.


    The story was boring. I liked the side missions that motivated you to explore the islands and offer a purpose to doing so. Also, the story was pretty nice until the HEAT bank scene. After that it trailed off and I felt I was only playing it to say I completed it. If it wasn't for the achhievements, I doubt I'd have completed it.

    I played Multiplayer a few times, but it got old quick. Waste of disc space in my opinion.


    Overall I'd say it was worth playing, but it's didn't recapture that longevity that 3 and VC had, nor the story lines either. Alot of nice additions, but it's become a case of playing it for the storyline, which wasn't good enough. I'll get the DLC. Never say never. I'd give it a 7/10 and most of that is technical merit.

    i finished it.. the best mission = the bank job.. felt that the game needed more missions like that though... but overall, i liked the whole game, just hated the ending.. shit was so quick...

    I wanted more shit to do like in San Andreas...

    But I still play it sometimes... MGS4 & GTA4 are 2 of the best games I've ever played...

    Hopefully Saints Row 2 tries to outdo GTA4...

    You don't describe a 'great' story line by 'it served it's purpose'. I don't see why people feel like they have to fucking go along with shit. It aint like the majority of people thought the story (post HEAT) was that good.

    Normally I wouldn't, but given it was billed to be a 'whole new GTA experience', I think it's fair for me to expect more. However, I did get sucked into the hype.

    Ratiko is right, they billed it as an entirely new experience, and it was anything but. It was the same old shit.

    I made it up to where you first play darts with your fat cousin. Got bored and really tried to get into it but just couldnt. Huge waste of money.

    I'm only still playing because I love NYC and I'm still fascinated by how much they reproduced it. That's until my N64 gets shipped in this week. Broker and Duke mission were the only enjoyable ones in my opinion.

    I'm still 30% in..lol...i went back to mass effect so i'm gonna beat that before i start playing gta again......

    but i kinda hate the micro management shit.....having to maintain friendships is kinda lame after a while......the storyline is good keeps you interested.......GTA allways has great characters so no difference here.....

    it's a good game
