GTA IV – The first review is in

1 min read

Fresh of the boat

IGN has posted what appears to be the first review of Grand Theft Auto IV and it appears that this game is not going to be letting us down.

Hilary Goldstein’s review spans 6 pages and gives us a great insight into the game that us mere mortals will only be getting tomorrow night. IGN has given it a clean sheet of 10’s but did back it up by saying that the game isn’t perfect.

It got the 10’s because it is a groundbreaking game that has pushed everything we know and love about GTA into a whole new arena… It really sounds fantastic and I highly recommend following the link and reading the review…

But hey I know why you’re here… you want to know which version wins out, did the 360 beat out the PS3 in a cross platform port again or has the power of the PS3 started to make it’s mark…

Well you will be happy to know that both versions are brilliant but the PS3 seems to have won this round. With less loading times, less pop in and better overall graphics it seems quite unanimous….

But I am pretty sure people will find ways to keep this argument going for a while.

What really interested me however was the multi player details, this title may possibly keep COD4, Halo 3 and Gears of the top of the Live scoreboard for a long time to come..

It will easily trump anything currently available on the PSN as well as I honestly feel this is the game that is going to move millions of PS3’s and they are all going to be getting online to give it a bash…. what an awesome time to be a gamer…

    I loved the part where they say it is a great game to play with your friends while drunk.

    well thank god that someone made the ps3 version better.
    But i can imagine that it will have that install bs and such, but I don’t care, I just wanna play the god dam game! I might be taking out a R500 load from the bank just to get this bad boy :P. lol since I got like R200 spare.

    this is just one of those games that if you don’t have, your life as a gamer just isn’t complete! lol πŸ˜€

  • Interesting the PS3 version seems to offer the better experience. The multiplayer options will definitely make this one of the top titles on Xbox Live though, no doubt.

    Loved the part where they say the ps3 version looks and performs better , so where to now for the ps3 bashers?
    Still not worth the money?

  • Lupus

    Yeah well you need something for paying twice the price hey πŸ˜€

  • Definitely still not worth the money for a games console πŸ˜‰ “a bit less pop-in” is really meaningless. On the other hand Kotaku has the PS3 with an erratic framerate and typical muddiness.

    So it just looks like each version is flawed in its own special way.

  • CHase

    Yep i knew it was gonna happen. The PS3 finally beats the Xbox
    in a unanimous decision. And in probably the best game of the next gen race.

    You xboxers are gonna have to wait till august to brag about your copies.

    Sorry about the flame but its PS3’s 1st victory over xbox πŸ™‚
