Does anybody think the reviews will go lower and lower like they do for most games (start out at 10/10 with uk reviews first)? Because UK OXM overrates many games.

OXM give a lot of 10s though don't they? Kind of devalues it.

Yeh but put it in perspective of similar games, they gave San Andreas 9.5 I heard. :)

1. You mean Rockstar

dont agree with 10 out of 10 reviews, that says that a game is perfect and can not be improved on in anyway.

im sure gta4 is gonna be great but there will be bits that all of us will think can be improved upon

that said though im still pants wettingly excited for this game

It is bound to get 10/10. It looks amazing and it is one step closer to real life. I heard you can even upgrade your mobile phone and I am sure there are a few flaws, what game doesn't have them? GTA IV will be the best thing ever to come to a game console!

everyone knew GTA was going to come out with nearly all 10/10 review's.. But lately i never really listen to the reviews anyway, as i've passed games that mag's, sites didn't reccomend, bought it later on down the line and cae to love it..

Yeah, seriously, do you think it's a pity 10?

a 10 out of 10 means different things. It shouldn't be devalued for CoD 4 and bioshock, which were good games, just well polished revisions on older ideas. GTA 4 both is and isn't a fresh idea, and while nothing is perfect, a 10 should show you something you haven't seen before and set the bar for all of gaming. I don't think a 10 should be some unattainable ideal though.
But it better be a 10 after they delayed it for 7 months.

I often wonder if you'll ever stop producing threads as often as I pee.
And not even inputing your own answer and/or thoughts.

I think GTA4 will get a high review, but no where near a 10/10. Maybe 8.5/10 the most.

Don't get me wrong, this game looks great but I think OXM gives 10/10 out like its nothing. I don't think Halo 3 should have gotten a 10/10, but it is still a great game. 10/10 means there is not one thing wrong with the game and nowadays, that is almost possible but not quite yet.

I don't even listen to reviews anymore. If it is something I think I would like, I rent first. Then if it's something I think I would play over and over I buy it.

Same. I don't usually go by reviews anymore either. Especially OXM. I used to go by X-Play religiously then their reviews turned to shit for the most part as well.

OXM give out bullshit reviews they gave Oblivion 10/10 which is crap (my opinion). I like the magazine and all but they give it 10/10 when they've played it 40+ hours and admitted they had to rush through the story and skip cut scenes.
