We have been embraced with another review of the title by British Magazine Empire, which shows us that a wide variety of countries are getting reviews such as America, France, Germany and Britain. The review gives it a perfect 5/5 score, telling us that the game is pretty much perfect and spot on with everything, whilst also very innovative.

Review
Lets get straight to the point: GTA IV doesnt reinvent the wheel. It sticks with the same mission-based structure as its predecessors, is crammed with challenges that inspire a nagging sense of dj vu, and if youre looking for a game that retools the freeform, sandbox adventure from the ground up, this isnt it.

However, what GTA IV does do is polish every facet of the franchise to within an inch of its life from the bustling streets and cinematic presentation, to the brutal gunplay and dizzying car chases in turn creating the ultimate GTA, a game that will delight the hardcore and newbies alike, and a title virtually guaranteed to be 2008s biggest videogame.

Ditching the series over-the-top badasses in favour of a realistic, downtrodden anti-hero, GTA IV adopts a more mature and less frivolous approach to its murderous plot, a move that will be welcomed by fans wholl see how the series is growing with them. But while this restrained take allows for a grittier, more believable atmosphere, its the little things that make GTA IV an unfettered joy.


You can read the rest of the review here - it certainly looks like we're in for a real treat on April 29th!

Thanks to TROD for the heads up.

Either you have to be a member to see it or it was taken down.

Did a search of the site: nothing. Even looked in the PS3 and Xbox360 sections: nothing.
