The new issue of the UK edition of the Official Xbox Magazine has a full review of Grand Theft Auto IV, crammed with plenty of new information you probably didn't know. Much of this information features small details, but those small details are what makes the game's Liberty City the realistic living breathing world that it is. You'll see pedestrians washing windows, or hear the various ringtones on their phones. Shoot a driver in the head and he could fall on the horn, or even on the gas pedal and run you over... Driving through a burnt out car's debris could overheat your tires and cause them to burst... There's just so many tiny details that will come together making GTA4 one of, if not the greatest game ever made.

The review also features a number of brand new screenshots showing the full HUD, including the radar, and ammo/score counter.

Most importantly though, the review gives GTA4 a perfect 10/10.
  • Amazingly realistic world
  • Stunning action set pieces
  • Genuinely engrossing storyline
  • Hugely entertaining multiplayer
  • Vast in every respect
"Stunning in every respect"

If you're in the UK, look out for this magazine in stores now. You won't be disappointed with the review and new information.

Information thanks to RAWRferal.

Perfect 10 out of 10? Awesome. Tires react to heat! Some molotov tire meltage perhaps?

We don't like to post scans on the website due to the copyright issues, however GTAGaming have never worried about morality or legality issues... So they've got some scans on their forums which you might wanna look at. http://www.gtagaming.com/forums/showthread.php?t=101930

To be fair nothing is perfect in every respect, I would much rather have a review that said a few issues with it as that would actually be believable.

Whoa! Changing phone's ring and theme! Buy rings and themes from the net! Woooo!

EDIT: OXM's review scores are alway a little higher than average [other sites/mags] IMO.

The review does say there were a few minor problems, but they could be fixed by the time the game ships. It's not going to be 100% perfect, but everything else in the game will make it a 10/10 game, I reckon.

Awesome, thanks Psy.

Never realised you were a Liverpool supporter, good on ya! Did you watch the match yesterday?

Without fishing back through previous articles, how long gameplay did they say it would be if you took it at a normal "have fun, do a mission, blow up stuff" kinda pace?

Edit:
I can't get to the link due to work filtering, any chance of someone doing the same to me as they (hopefully are) doing for Soliex (above)?

I was at the game yesterday, so yeah. Was alright. First half was a bit boring but the second half was much better.

From previous articles, they reckon about 100 hours to finish the game if you're not rushing through it.

Brilliant, should last me a while biggrin.gif

I couldn't get tickets to Blackburn, but hopefully up there for Man City. I thought the ref was a bit of a tosser to be honest.

Could you possibly PM me with the image links because my stupid work filter has blocked it?

I've been to about 30 games this season, but the Blackburn game was the last one for me. Was going to go to the Chelsea semi final, but I'm busy that week, and it's my birthday around the Man City game so I'll be staying in Newcastle with my mates. The ref was pretty shite though. Could have had 2 or 3 penalties. Then again Skrtel could have been sent off too. Well, one last game might be in Moscow... But I'll see smile.gif.

I'll send you the links.

Thanks for the links mate, catch you later smile.gif

Yeah read the scans a few hours ago. Good stuff. I can say I'm pretty much totally hyped now for this shit. Metal Gear Online beta coming soon, that'll keep me busy for abit. Also new CoD 4 maps. Also Burnout patch.

All of which I won't be playing at all once GTA 4 comes out, kind of a shame but...well that's how it is.
