Horny Melon: PS3 GTA IV Review

GTA IV is the first installment of the GTA franchise on the current gen platforms. It was released simultaneously on both the Xbox 360 and PS3. The game couldn't have been more hyped, living in LA we have seen everything from banners on buildings, to billboards, to posters in the crappiest sections of town. GTA articles were taking over blogs and websites for the whole week leading up to, and most likely following, the release.

Let's see a website thats called hornymelon dosen't like this game. Well I'm convinced must be garbage lol. You knew we would eventually get a website giving a bad score so they can get hits.

Horny Melon3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

in that short of a time. The only reason you think 75/100 is bad is because your used to seeing games like Assassins creed get 9.8 out of 10 because someone spent a billion in advertising. We don't fall into the "OH MY GOD! I SAW A MILLION BILLBOARDS, COMMERCIALS, ETC,. THAT AUTOMATICLY MEANS IT'S FLAWLESS IN EVERY WAY" Crowd.

Relcom3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

Just awful, your sh*tty review doesn't deserve a spot on this site!

Nice try with the lets do a bad reviews for website hits, everyone do yourself a favor and don't click on the link.

Played and beat GTA 4, definately not a 3 out of 4

Drekken3508d ago

Horny Melon, This game has its flaws... but your review is junk. If you werent such a noob you wouldnt have auto aim on. You are going to be pissed that "auto-play-the-game-for-m e" doesnt work properly? Please go back to playing the wii.

wolfehound223508d ago

Dude I read it. You start of saying you weren't even going to get it. Ya that makes me take your review serious. You went in thinking it was going to be garbage. Now I'm not saying it's the second coming but come on just a little to harsh.

Some of the points are valid, but they are drowned out by the quality of the writing.

Dark General3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

I'm sorry but this review is laughable. I really hope you don't call yourself a journalist. Let me just say this off the bat i RESPECT your opinion. But when you doct the score of the game because it didn't have "turf wars" or battling for ground from the previous games it just doesn't make sense in the contextual use. Seriously it doesn't. How would it have worked going in with the more mature story vibe of GTA4? This isn't just about rising to the top of the chain or whatever but actually have some substance to the plot, as well as the driving not being that bad (though could use refinement).

Let me not even get started, 9/10 for graphics? Are you kidding me? All the characters have a strange yellow mist sprayed on their skin that makes it seem like they are glowing, the npc's isn't as detailed as the npc's in assassins creed. Now i'm not saying the graphics are horrible but a 9 out of 10? It's THAT close to perfection in your eyes? And who the hell makes a category for extra content?

Oh yeah looking around your site i see this is YOUR FIRST VIDEO GAME REVIEW EVER ON YOUR SITE. Like i said i respect your opinion and even agree with you on some aspects (still bad aiming etc). But when you grade the content of the game a 6 out of 10 then go on to say "There is just an outrageous amount of stuff to do in this game. I put maybe 8+ hours into this game for 5 days and have still not beat it. I haven’t even touched any of the side quests yet." it just reeks of bullshit. I'm sorry Horny Melon but this review is plain horrible.

mayby he was drunk while playing,cause gta is all about gameplay not graphics or anything else,that's why we play it,then how mr.horny melon give this 75 out of 100 while gameplay is 4 out of 10,crazy I think.

Horny Melon3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

5 titles across multiple platforms over 8 years, and I'm still targeting civilians in a "Heat" style fire fight?

Go here kill this person, go here grab that still = fetch

All the cool missions that were not fetch based. E.g. gang wars, criminal empire building, etc were the most raved about and most controversial in previous titles. Gone, most likely for fear of lawsuit.

HighDefinition3508d ago

You are very desperate.

Some people (like you) just like to be "the guy" who doesn`t like something everyone else does.

Horny Melon3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

So I don't know where you get that from. It's not that I don't like it because everyone else does. It's that a lot of people can't count.

50 out of 100 is middle of the road, not 85 out of 100.

HighDefinition3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

Honestly, you should check yourself for BRAIN DAMAGE.

What other game have you given a 8/10 too? I`m just curious, and i`m NOT looking @ your website, so just tell me.

Horny Melon3508d ago

you have to understand that no game is capable of 100. 100 is flawless no game reaches that. Only fan boys think they can. Even the best games will likely get a 10 in only one or two categories. For instance. Spore, Second life, and Unreal 3 for PS3 would get 10s in content. Why? Because they allow user generated content...meaning the sky is potentially limitless. For graphics a ten would be running at max resolution capable for platform at 60 fps...GT5, Cyris..are examples. A good review is realistic.

HighDefinition3508d ago

When did I say it was PERFECT, you and PSWii60 seem to think I said that, i didn`t. I said it`s NOT a 7.5/10.

Saying it`s a 7.5/10 is just a ridiculous as saying it PERFECT and has no FLAWS.

to me, 10/10 mean system seller/must play.

Coheno3508d ago

Why are you mentioning SPORE?! That game isn't even out yet?!!!

Fruit Loops3508d ago

Your conclusion sucks. GTA IV clearly broke bounderies no game has ever passed before, and a game can still not be perfect. Deserves 9ish

Amanosenpai3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

5 titles across multiple platforms over 8 years, and I'm still targeting civilians in a "Heat" style fire fight?

Anything else bro? Maybe an autoaim "headshot" style... that just target cops and bad guys. ¬_¬

4/10 in gameplay... absurd, its not perfect but its not Lair...

Edit: about"For graphics a ten would be running at max resolution capable for platform at 60 fps...GT5, Cyris..are examples. A good review is realistic."

REALISTIC??? u considered the fact that actual consoles simply do not support a colossus sandbox like GTA4 with that specs???

U really have a problem with STANDARDS

how is writing an honest review desperate? Maybe you are desperate at saying this game is near perfection when any common sense tells you otherwise. 75 is still an awesome score so give it a rest.

HighDefinition3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

7.5/10 for GTAIV is desperate, It NOT like I haven`t played it. It NOT perfect but it`s NOT a 7.5/10, some site are just attention whores like the guy who gave BIOSHOCK a 6/10.

It`s JUST RUDE!!!!! Reviewers DON`T review games for theirself, they review them for the PUBLIC.

Name a better game this gen so far.

When the F**k did I say it was PERFECT?

PS360WII3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

you gave the inclination that it was perfect by saying he should of just reviewed it like everyone else. That's saying no one should have an opinion just give it the score the first guy gave it which was a 10. You guys are ridiculous at trying to stop a review from going up on a website. You probably wouldn't even care that it's 75/100 but seeing that this is a PS3 review god forbid! Oh and sure Bioshock, Prey, Mario, Ratchet, CoD4, Halo 3, Pixel Junk Monsters, Professor Layton, Crisis Core, Ninja Gaiden DS, Resistance, No More Heroes are all games I feel are better off then what GTA IV will give us just to name a few.

Horny Melon3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

I'll name 5

Uncharted
Bioshock
Mass Effect
Oblivion
Orange Box

3 origional IP beats 6 time sequel any time
1 massively huge game with huge mod community
5 games for $60 nough said.

I would have given it the same score on a 360 but I couldn't sit through it twice.

What good is a review if it's just telling you what the last guy said? That makes no sense what so ever.

Wow, your just a GTAIV HATER, you a republican or what?

Prey, huh? OK.

PS360WII3508d ago

ha love it! You ask me for better games and I give them to you so now I'm a hater. Yeah sure you are something else. Well done on showing us that you are just desperate at saying GTA is the second coming of christ. Good job at showing you are nothing but a hater on an honest review. Bias you are. you get a clap from me /clap

HighDefinition3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

My comment below explains how i think your a HATER.

again, below.

See your still saying i`m refering to it as the "2nd coming".

i told you, your blinded by hate.

PS360WII3508d ago

Yeah sorry I'm not the hater here. You are the one trying so ever hard to point out how only someone who thinks for themselves is the bad guy.

HighDefinition3508d ago

Is one of the MOST "buggy" do the same thing for a 100hrs game out there.

Prey and Oblivion are your guys "name drops"? LoL.

@PSwii60

No, i never gave the impression it was perfect, all your very apparent hate for GTA made you think I said that. See I told you some people just like to be "the guy" who doesn`t like it, to make theirself feel cool. You guys both just proved my point, by telling me i said it was perfect, when i didn`t.

PS360WII3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

heh obviously you are trying to talk yourself into believing you are in the 'right' but it's all failing because now you are just saying the same thing over. Surely you can see you are blinded by the fact you want GTA to be the greatest ever. You are complaining about .5 of a score. You say it could be 8 but 7.5 is just wrong and you are only trying to get attetion? Maybe you are just trying to get attention at being the GTA protector. The only one trying to be cool is the guy trying to block a review of a game

Horny Melon3508d ago

On the PC the fixed 90% of the bugs with patches the rest were covered by unofficial patches. Prey....I didn't say that. Like I said before you call me a hater but I give rockstar tons of credit all through the review except for a few key areas.

Have you played all the GTAs or is this your first one? If it's your first I can see why you would want it to have a higher score. There is a bunch to do in the game no doubt but 70% of it was in the first 5.

HighDefinition3508d ago (Edited 3508d ago )

We disagree. THAT`s A FACT!!!! LOL.

bubbles for us.

BTW i think it deserves a 10/10 for being that best out right now.
10/10 doesn`t mean perfect, Ocarina of Time isn`t PERFECT, i played it last week. But for the time it was a 10/10. That how I see it.

Ace Ventura3508d ago

hahahahhahaha desperate Xbox 360 fanboys. Xbox 36th0 is going to lose.

Qbanboi3508d ago

No no, man. People are hating on him, because the title says: "GTAIV Ps3". He's not hating on the Ps3, he just review the Ps3 version because maybe, that's the one he has or the best version out there, idk.

Please don't be blind fans. The 360 version was going to get the same score if he reviewed it. I think.

alexM3508d ago

PS3 GTA 4 is SUPERIOR

Swedish gaming mag Gamereactor said that there are MAJOR DIFFERENCES between the 2 version

http://www.gamereactor.se/r...
Swedish Gamereactor mentioned in their 10/10 review that they were pretty surprised regarding the difference between the PS3 and 360-versions. The PS3-version features better colours, contrast, load times and what looks to be better resolution textures. The game also looks sharper and has a more stable fps.

IGN

http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-...

"For those wanting to know which version looks better, the edge goes to the PS3. The textures and framerate are comparable, but the PS3 has far less pop-in. The 360 has richer colors, but the PS3 has better anti-aliasing making it look a little cleaner. Because GTA IV can preload onto the PS3 hard drive, the in-game loads are faster. Don't worry Xbox owners, the load times are rarely more than 30 seconds and don't occur very often. The slight visual edge goes to PS3, but the 360 is no slouch. Either version will do you proud".

X360 version has FR dips too . more frequent than the PS3 version
"Past GTA titles have had mild-to-serious framerate issues and technical glitches, because the games were trying to do far more than the PlayStation 2 could handle. While GTA IV is pushing the PS3 and 360 to the limit, it also runs amazingly well. Sure, there are framerate hitches here and there and (particularly on 360) there is some texture pop-in, but it actually runs better than I expected. That a game with great AI, an awesome physics engine and a detailed open world runs so well and with such short load times is a technical marvel. For that, I can forgive framerate issues and some noticeable aliasing. "

http://www.n4g.com/NewsPend...

"PS3 version looks slightly more vibrant and sharp "

GAMESRADAR

http://www.gamesradar.com/x...

"Occasional pop-up".........ONLY IN X360 version of GTA4

http://xs226.xs.to/xs226/08...

So happy that i own a PS3

GAMESRADAR also confirms that PS3 version is SUPERIOR

"While the PS3 and 360 versions of the game are functionally identical, the PS3's visuals sport noticeably smoother edges, along with a warmer color palette that makes everything look slightly more realistic. If you're looking to compare Accomplishments with your Achievement-hoarding friends, though, forget it - GTA IV ignores these half-assed consolation prizes altogether. PS3 owners also have to put up with a nearly eight-minute installation the first time they start the game, which puts the normally slower Blu-ray load times on par with the Xbox 360 version. (That is, unless it's running on a 360 with no hard drive, which we're told will face much longer loads.)"

Others here u go
