Game Almighty: GTA IV review

A single player review of GTA4 where Game Almighty seem to be a bit over fussy, seems that they are trying too hard to have a review that stands out from the others by being controversial,not sure it really works due to their picking being too petty

so the trend was broken days ago

However since the PS3 version is graphically and technically superior (less pop ins, stable FR) i think this is an anomaly

I think Sammy Mantra is employed by MS...too further ruin there credibility.

sammy_mantra5932d ago (Edited 5932d ago )

you seem to be directly financed by MS

However nothing might not be able to save your beloved console this time

Not being fanboyish but the PS3 might very well sweep the competition with GTA4.

It was always on cards . Now it will happen because of GTA4 x360 fiasco


when you gain momentum it is hard to peg you back. thats console war for YOU . You dont fall till the completion of your QUEST

@ Bill

I always liked game almighty. They have some vicious reviews at times. Still though this should help the people who think "No game is perfect" ehrn reviewers aren't reviewing it for everything. They are reviewing it for GTA....

only reviews the single player mode?

its one package.....multiplayer+singe player.

this is f***** up.

TheIneffableBob5932d ago

Lots of sites actually reviewed the single-player campaign of Halo 3 first, then did the multiplayer.

Not every game is perfect to everyone.

calis5932d ago

That is because the game is NOT perfect.

TheExecutive5932d ago

10/10 has never meant perfection anyway...

+they didnt even review the MP mode, which is retarded since you know, it comes with the game

PS3 is the only true next-gen system the Wii and 360 shouldn't even be considered next-gen consoles. First off the Wii and 360 still use an old format called DVD which only holds 4.7 gbs of data or 9gb on dual layer disc, the PS3 uses Blu-ray which holds 25gb of data or 50gb on dual layer disc. The Wii has no hdmi port which is necessary for the future while the 360 has an hdmi port 1.2 and the PS3 has an hdmi port that supports 1.3a. The differences first off 1.2 supports 16.7 million colors while 1.3a supports over 1 billion colors. 1.2 cant use Dolby True HD or DTS HD Master Audio and it cant support 7.1 surround sound, while on the other hand hdmi 1.3a supports all that plus more. hdmi 1.2 can only support 1920x1080p60fps maxed out while 1.3a supports 2560x1600p60fps maxed out. An added bonus about 1.3a also supports x.y.Color and Deep Color which 1.2 dosent. 1.3a also has a way higher transfer rate and bit rate compared to 1.2. Also the 360 has 3 core processors which is old news considering Intel makes Quad Core Processors while the PS3 has the revoluntionary Cell processor which has 8 and the Wii has a weak processor we dont even nedd to talk about.You cant even upgrade the 360 HD unless u pay for an overpriced 120 piece of crap HD on th PS3 u can upgrade your HD limitleesly. The 360 or the Wii doesnt even have an HD movie playback drive the PS3 does. The PS3 is built stronger than both the Wii and 360 it can handle more heat and cold and still not break down. Also the PS3 firmware constantly upgrades the system and by far has the most multimedia compatibilities compared to the Wii and 360. The RSX GPU can handle DirectX 10 level details and graphics the 360 GPU can't. The PS3 is truly the only system worthy of being called next gen and is the most future proof console that ever existed.

hahaha troll this podcast disagreees with yopu btw its the same ppl that wrote that review and they say the 360 version look sbetter http://uk.ps3.ign.com/artic...

"PS3 version of GTA4 is confirmed to be superior

i repeat CONFIRMED


"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. "


"PS3 version looks slightly more vibrant and sharp "

It is over for MS and X3FIX me

nbsmatambo5932d ago (Edited 5932d ago )

i could have sworn u wrote the exact same thing on another post


Edit: Y did i get a disagree lol, i just said he wrote the same thing on another post, i didnt say it wasnt true <(-.-)>

End Of war 25932d ago

this proves the 360 actually has better graphics and the ps3 has less pop in due to hard drive pre-install and we all know pop ups aren't a major issue http://uk.ps3.ign.com/artic... so what do fanboys have to say about this link ? .
