8.5 is a little too generous dont you think? This game is mediocre at best. I literally played 4 hours and sold my copy.

I just didn't understand the storyline, it was more confusing than MGS4. I don't understand the love for this game to be honest.

Are you serious? You seriously couldn't understand a story of an undercover cop working with a gang and building a bond with them?

8.5 isn't to generous at all the game has an interesting story good gameplay and a well crafted open world. You've only played 4 hours so I guess it isn't really your thing and thats just how you feel but the majority of the people have enjoyed the game, claiming it to be the sleeper hit of 2012.

In terms of story it's quite rare to find this style of cop drama narrative work in an open world environment but UFG managed to make it work. You might not understand the game has but obviously a lot of people can and every one has a different opinion of what makes a good game.
