How can this game be rated so high ?

With the mess the online mode is in how can this website justify their 100 rating on this game ? I have seen games get ripped to shreds because of little glitches but because this is GTA people are being biased.

Because it's awesome, the end. Seriously though, I believe the review is based only on the single player. When it was published the online was two weeks away from being released and no-one could have foreseen the glitches.

The review is solely on the singleplayer end. I thought they should've done a separate review for the online but I don't think this site does that.

Yeah the review was on single player so I agree with that high mark but personally I would give GTA online 60 out 100 it really is lacking in most departments and personally won't keep me busy. They are adding content through out the months but still don't see it improving massively.

The game is rated high, because people like it!

OPINIONS, FOR THE WIN!

Don't like that people rate it so highly? Start your own website/blog and give it a lower review score...

Because a lot of people think it's awesome.

Just because you don't like it, doesn't mean others don't.

Personally I can't understand why everyone loves Halo, Bioshock, Gears of War, Final Fantasy etc etc. But I know and accept that that's just my opinion. As they are obviously massively popular/highly scored games.

All of the reviews of the game (at the time of release) only had the single-player to go by. Had the online been available at the time, I'm sure that it would still have scored highly, but between 80-90% bracket.

The fact that the multi-player is still broken means that it would be unfair to review it even at this stage IMO.

Magazines/websites and all other types of media have a certain blackout time before they are allowed to review games (specially the big releases) which is set by the publishers (I think). But at the same time after the blackout these people have the opportunity to decide when to publish their review so if they choose to do the review before the online has been released then that's up to them.

If you think that the review scores are unfair I suggest that you contact each and every reviewer and persuade them (GTA style) to change it appropriately.

Personally I feel that the majority of the scores are right - based on the single-player alone.

Kidding me? It was broken, plain and simple. So why should they get a grace period for reviews on that? If they can't deliver a finished working product, they should've delayed it by a few more weeks.
