GTA V - x360a Review

Drum roll please.....

Will GTA V live up to it's hype? Can it match the perfect score of Irrational Games' BioShock Infinite??

It's safe to say: YES!

I thought Bioshock Infinite was a 8.0 at best. Hope this is a worthy score for GTAV.

The score x360a gave is still too low, but a 100 will do for now. Ha!

I thought reviews were allowed only after the embargo had been lifted, ie, tomorrow.

Frankly I'm not surprised at all, it's kinda obvious that x360a gives a 100 rating!

What's really impressive is that these reviews are in some ways only half the game as GTA Online isn't up till October.

I don't mean to dog it, I'm just confused as to how 460/500 total points = a score of 100, unless the achievements are just a separate rating that don't fit into the game's ranking? Either way, this is good news.

The achievements never factor into the overall score.

Thanks for that, I figured as much. Interesting to see all of these near perfect scores, but there's that one (The Escapist) who isn't as happy.

Yea, the achievements is sort of for the achievement hunters, but in the end the final score is the experience of the game without concentrating on the whore score aspect

I guess achievements don't really affect the gameplay but it should still be somewhat important. Nonetheless, I'm sure GTA V will live up to the hype it's been getting. I'll see tomorrow.

Either way, I'm not focusing on achievements in this game from the start. I just want to soak up everything Los Santos has to offer without worry of grinding an achievement or doing this instead of that to unlock an achievement. I'm going to play the game, enjoy myself, and when the time comes that I complete it, then I'll go back and unlock them.

Not long now, gents.

Nope. Some of the legitimate copies floating around are review copies - copies sent out by the publishers to sites such as this so a review can be posted. Posting it a day before release makes sense, because if the review is good it may pull in extra sales.

Thank you, he who reviewed Grand Theft Auto 5 for this website, for making my regret EVEN heavier than what is was, due to me cancelling my pre-order. All because of my want for the Xbox One.

I didn't think it was possible to regret my decision any more, but you made that possible.

I don't know whether to hate you, or thank you.

I shall go cry some more now.

An embargo is a date set by the company. Rockstar chose today.

shit, 24 hours and i can finally play this game

it really is amazing though that the reviews are out already and the online portion doesn't even drop until oct. 1

is the online portion being viewed as it's own entity?

Can't believe some of those other reviews are low. I thin the guys from The Escapist didn't quite get it and should be fired.

The only thing I don't agree with (and it doesn't actually take anything away from the game) was the soundtrack. Not that great IMO. ingame audio is awesome and scripted audio tracks, voices, etc are awesome..... just the soundtrack is MEH to me personally.

That's disappointing, they've basically reviewed half of the game. Then again it seems nearly anything you can do in the singleplayer has been implemented into Online!
