"•You can buy property too; houses, garages and businesses can all be purchased for extra revenue sources."

They never said there wouldn't be property buying...they said "there wouldn't be property buying like it was in the past, that spending your money would mean more this time".

"Each character has a 'Special': Franklin is an adrenalin junkie and can slow down time while driving; Trevor has a frenzy mode, where he's does double damage, takes half damage, and has a unique melee attack; Michael has his own version of bullet time"

Not liking the sound of that...I don't want silly gimmicks for characters which make the game easier, plus it doesn't suit this type of game.

If a character needs to be stronger then make me go to a gym, make me buy body armor, make me upgrad my guns, but don't give the character a special power like he's a superhero

I dunno, they seem fine to me. Enhance the game, not completely change it or make it "OP". Other than Trevor's, but it seems fine. And looks like Rockstar is bringing the bullet time system to GTA, which seems like a blend of assets.

please buy this game and play it and dont even buy cod untill you get tired of this game which should be never. also the specials are good so you can see what the guy you are controlings is good at. i hope they have rampages and such like the past gtas and you get slow mo type powers in vice city when you take them drugs so this is a good edition that make since because a trained driver gonna be better then a not trained driver so they need to show the difference in your skills when you going all out ride or die style.

ok, could this.... could this.. is there a chance that this could be.. could, be the best game of this generation?

is this the perfect goodbye and how of power to a gen that is finally coming to a close.

it sounds too good to be true. I am loving everything i have heard to far and the best bit is R* have a very bad habbit of actually delivering on what they show and the thing is even if they only deliver on 90%, 80% of what has been talked about, it could still be the very best game.

i don't know, its scaring me just thinking about it. roll on sept
