Well written review. My only counter-argument would be your comment on the confusing story structure; it was confusing just because the narrative didn't proceed chronologically? I can name several movies that had similar progression. It worked in Beyond's fashion as we're given experiences in different parts of Jodie's life before everything comes together harmoniously.

Regarding the choices not directly affecting the ending; none of the choices you'd make... #1

What a rubbish "comparison." There is no proper evidence here while the lighting is vastly different. #21

In essence. It's there, you just have to pay attention. It doesn't come right out and tell you what they were looking to imply; the theme is there and the actions and situations presented with dialogue is up for your determination.

Not going to lie, it's chilling. #3.1.1

I don't expect people to think highly of my reviews; I expect people to read them and take my opinions at face value and experience the video game for themselves. The change of score was not completely based on the online component, but based on my 100% completion of the game with the multiplayer feature obviously inspiring the overall score. It was bound to change because the initial review was for the main game itself, as GTAO was not yet available.

As for my reviews be... #11.1

I didn't even notice I put an 8.5, I intended to change it to 9.5. After I had more experience with the game and finished everything completely, as well as having a taste of GTAO, the overall score did change indeed. #10.1

Actually, I thought the combat gameplay was dramatically improved over Grand Theft Auto IV; aiming is less of a hassle and the reticle is a lot more free and responsive. Weapons all have a fair amount of accuracy, recoil and different feels to them.

Driving was an improvement; vehicles no longer manoeuvre like boats, but trucks still have a considerable mass.

As for the stereotypes, that was the point. Grand Theft Auto V is all about stereotypes; the lifestyl... #7.1.2

Game of the Year contender for sure. No questions asked. I'm not sure which I enjoyed more: GTA V or The Last of Us. #3.1

Hmm. Good question, my friend. I would have to say yes, Grand Theft Auto V is the best in the series so far. Sure, there were aspects about the other games that I've preferred, but GTA V is definitely the best.

Think of it like this: we all know that San Andreas back on the PS2 was the most epic GTA of them all. Grand Theft Auto V is basically San Andreas x100 with brilliant graphics. #1.1

The problem isn't that Rockstar included uncensored sex. The problem is underage children being allowed access to the game. It's rated M/17+ for a reason. #42

Thanks, WitWolfy.

Like I said, I didn't intentionally use the date of the leak in the title to reflect the terrorist attack. That's disrespectful and distasteful.

I feel bad for the user, socks, since he or she must be horribly bored to patronise me for a slice of irony.

Socks, if I might recommend getting a day job? It might help ease the anxiety of being home, harassing people all the time. #3.2.1

Wow. That is deliciously impressive and it really looks like Rockstar Games has pulled every string of power inside the Xbox 360 and PS3 to properly utilise their abilities. Simply wonderful! #11

I didn't write the title to reflect the terrorist attack twelve years ago; I would have used the same title if the date was 9/10 or 9/12. It's called irony, friend. #3.1

I think you've misunderstood. I'm completely aware that you're able to complete missions whilst mastering the Ghost playstyle overall; I listed 'Forcing the Assault playstyle' as a downside because I wasn't a fan of being forced into Assault methodologies for the sake of the story, yet still being rated as not being seen, non-lethal, etc. #2.1

I'm not too sure; I haven't been able to remain undetected when Paladin falls under attack in the hangar. Leaving the plane and taking cover always results in being spotted. #1.1.2

I'm struggling to understand the point that this blog was trying to make. I mean, raise a hand if you can name an instalment in a series that was completely "new" and "original." Especially when it comes to Call of Duty or any other critically successful franchise; when you have a formula that works, the company is never going to deviate from that formula. They're only going to add onto it, remove what was not popular or liked and continue forward.

There's no "right" or "wrong" way to do open world games. There's plenty of open-world games that don't revolve around "senseless" killing. You need to get out more and do your research.

Minecraft
Elder Scrolls
Fable
Driver
Harvest Moon
Legend of Zelda
Dragon Age
Need for Speed (MW, HP, Carbon)

To name a few. #1.3

Yes, I'm aware of that. The question is, how much better? Significantly or a mere 1% better? #7.5.1

Perhaps I'm mistaken, but didn't Rockstar already announce that GTA V was not going to next-gen consoles? I know they haven't confirmed or denied a PC release, but I'm pretty sure they denied a next-gen release.

It would make sense too, since they're working on an original, open-world IP for the Xbox One and PS4. #1.13

Have you considered that perhaps not everyone is upgrading to the Xbox One or PS4 on day one? Some people still want to experience Watch Dogs and not have to pay $400/$500 to do it, and they shouldn't be penalised with horrid visuals because of this. #7.2.1

A much better trailer, but I still want to know:

• Was the Honoured trailer gameplay, and if so, what console?
• Was the Aisha Tyler trailer gameplay, and if so, what console?

I'm not going to buy the game if the Xbox 360/PS3 versions look like the Aisha Tyler trailer. I have the CE preordered for Xbox 360 and if it looks like the AT trailer, I'll cancel it and wait until I have the Xbox One or PS4 before I buy the game. #7
