Is this game new and different enough?

Seems like most reviewers had a good time with it. And this is *without* considering/playing GTA Online. Crazy.

I feel like such an outsider today for not being a GTA fan.

Sadie21001768d ago

Funny that "falls short" still equates to a 95/100 score.

Hicken1768d ago

That's what I was gonna say. Doesn't seem like it fell very short, if it's that close to 100.

I'm wondering if this isn't another situation like GTAIV, where it's getting these scores BECAUSE it's GTA.

JeffGrubb1768d ago

I think it's possible that, like GTA IV, the game also deserves positive reviews.

Hicken1768d ago

I didn't say it doesn't deserve POSITIVE reviews. A game can deserve positive scores and still be overrated.

Call of Duty is a perfect example: the games generally deserve positive reviews, but they definitely don't deserve the high level of accolades they've been garnering for years now.

better than the 70 score from the escapist for sure.
