Nice Review, Vaughn.

I agree with most of your bigger points, except for the multiplayer. I'm happy to see them not trying to shoehorn an experience that I feel is not needed.

Dead Space 2 anyone?

On the other hand, Rockstar and Team Bondi blow me away with the MotionScan technology. In some ways I feel that this game was more of a showcase of the technology more than it was a creation of a new franchise. I saw some issues with facial textures (especially around the mouth), and a fuzzy ring around the character models. The tech is obviously spectacular, and I'm more excited to see the game that comes out with it next.

I completely agree with the sound of the game. The acting is amazing and the music is fun.

The biggest issue I have is with the interrogations. I can't seem to get the hang of it, and I feel like the game doesn't do a very good job of explaining how and when to choose certain options. Sometimes the game seems to break its own rules for sensing when a person is lying or telling the truth.

(If you know a secret, please tell me :) )

Great review, Vaughn!
