A GTA IV review by Jeux Vidéos Magazine

On this french website, there is a Grand Theft Auto IV review.

- There is no loading (excepting on the launching of the game).
- The other characters will be very natural.
- Graphics aren't amazing, but they are very good (some flutters)
- The spirit of this GTA IV is based on : originality, realism, coherence, references, violence, provocation, sex, but less fun than in the previous versions.
- General atmosphere of this game is excellent (production, noises, etc.)
- In the dialogues, there are lot of unforgettable retorts, always so tasty.
- Multi-player is very good, but cooperation is medium.
- The content (size of the town, vehicles, weapons, minigames, etc) is rich and various.
- The gameplay is not so easy at the beginning.

Do you want to set a new record for most disagrees?
Because you are obviously asking for trouble.
I think i'll translate this completely
and post it somewhere.

ok look the reason i hate this game so much. u wanna know. al tell u anyway

i dont hate it because it doesnt have "Final Fantasy" in its name. or because it isnt an rpg game. though it probably has some rpg elements it stole.

*the reason i hate it*

is because of its content and history.

Jack Thompson is that idiot who has been bad mouthing GTA sicne vice city . But he only did it to give it publicity. It was revealed proably around the time when he was banned from submiting cases to the court, that he OWNS SHARES in TAKE 2. I hate its roots and how it became big

Yes he was only bad motuhing to give it more publicity and make it sell well. good thing he was banned from court. he needs a lawyer with him now.

i also hate it because it promotes gangsters. and i dont like its racist content. people use it to kill white people, black people in the game e.t.c when they cant in real life. soem use it as simualtion. well i know its not excatly the games fault

but the game is so messed up and so evil. it is making people sinister and makign it look like gangsters are cool. This is a problem since a chikd upbring efefct a lot. and this game is making them messed up

I don't hate GTA but i can't say i am a fan. I would rate my excitement level for the game a 4/10. If today it got delayed till next yr it would have absolutely no impact on me whatsoever. With this review i am quite happy though.

- There is no loading (excepting on the launching of the game). Very important to me. One of the best things of GOW3 was no loading so the action never stopped. Loading essentially killed DMC4 for me.

- The spirit of this GTA IV is based on : originality, realism, coherence, references, violence, provocation, sex, but less fun than in the previous versions.
This i completely expected.

BeaArthur3835d ago

sephiroths_revenge...that is a pretty stupid reason to hate it. So he may have experimented with a new way of promoting the game; good for him. I really can't take you seriously though since you don't know how to use the spell check feature.

Drekken3835d ago

sephiroths_revenge, I tried to pick up the point you were putting down... but seriously man, you owe me 2 advils... you gave me a headache.

fox023835d ago

i think by the end of the day, you'll have 0 bubbles; in fact, i'm pretty sure of it, so prepare your new account right now

hamburgerhill3835d ago

I see where your coming from but until games can make us feel emotionally connected everything else is pure fantasy! In ten years from now your points will make since but now this is nothing more then a game and thats it!

Jack Meahoffer3835d ago (Edited 3835d ago )

So you must not like any game with violence and/or gang activity in it right? Godfather, Saints Row, Crackdown and The Getaway to name a few. Do you HATE those games as well?

Sounds to me like you don't like any non Final Fantasy game getting attention, especially the massive attention GTA IV gets.

You make an extremely weak argument. You might as well just say "I LOVE CENSORSHIP".

BulletBtweenUrEyes3835d ago

Its all clear to me now. So your saying the reason i wanna slap the sh*t out of you for making such a retarded comment is cuz GTA makes me wanna do it. That is major BS son. If you really live and die by those words that would mean you have missed out on all the great action/thriller/drama/suspense movies,games,tv shows, etc etc. Its amazing how when you put those things together it equals to you not having a life. My advice for you is to get one, they're actually going on sale sometime around midnight April 28-29, they retail at Wal-mart or GameStop for about $59.99 P.S. make sure you get inline early there are going to be a sh*tload of people also trying to Get-A-Life

The Closing3835d ago

I understand your distaste for the wanna be vide game thug aspect of the game, which is really why I'd like to hate it as well, but on the other hand the sheer amount you can do in this game has me wanting to play it.

Jinxstar3835d ago (Edited 3835d ago )


Pick this up and read it.


After you educate yourself on a subject you know absolutely nothing about come back and talk.

From their review there's problems with the AI, but according to all the previews the AI was really good.
I'll wait til' next week to judge for myself.

THC CELL3835d ago

Cant wait
Game of the year i wish they would tell us what console they review it from
would be a bit better

Cant wait for the X flop vs Ps3 Vids and comps

RealTimeWeaponChange3835d ago

I can't wait for those either. Then you droids can shut up once and for all.

Surfman3835d ago (Edited 3835d ago )

sephiroths_revenge3835d ago

see what i mean

this game messes people up...

BeaArthur3835d ago

sephiroths_revenge...I'm sure he was an idiot long before GTA came out.

poopsack3835d ago

so you dress to look feminine right? cause that is what your saying people's lives are influenced by the games they play, and you play rpgs. That was lame, saying people use GTA as a simulation to kill people. Its so accurate right? If people use GTA to do that than GTA doesn't do that to people, they were already psycho.
