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.
