IMHO I think that the review was paid off, no game EVER deserves a 10/10, that would mean perfection and means it can't be improved.

Do you know how to read?

A "10" is not a score we give out very often. In fact, the last time we gave a 10 to a console game was Soul Calibur in 1999. A 10 doesn't mean a game is perfect -- it means a game is pushing boundaries, expanding a genre, and doing many things to a level so far above and beyond its competitors that they overshadows any flaws. Certainly, GTA IV has some issues, the most noticeable being the occasional flaw in the cover system, but there are many more pieces of GTA IV that are better than anything I've seen from a game in the past decade. We don't give 10s often -- just to games that merit the score.
I have to agree with ElMike... you can't rate a game(whether it's graphics, gameplay, etc...) until you've played it yourself.

The game has its good points. Everyone once in a GREAT while its fun to get 5 stars and see how long you can last but thats about all its good for and realistically thats all people really play it for. I have yet to know anyone who got into the watery plot and actually finish one.

It seems mostly its teens who get their unknowing parents to buy it for them because its a "cool" game because every other word is n*&^er, whitey, cracker and pig. Its kinda like one of those "Scary Movies". They are funny when you are 14 but you grow out of that stage quickly

Anyone who wants top notch game play mechanics, plot, decent story telling, or graphics usually look elsewhere.

GTA in my eyes is a godly game, it revolutionized that genre. The ai in GTA3 was impressive when it first was released and the details in all of the GTA's since 3 were impressive right down to the phony phone numbers that actually worked when u dialed them lol.

Yes I know how to read ......

My point is that 10/10 means perfection. If its not perfection then its not 10/10. Their rating system is flawed.

Have you ever actually PLAYED a GTA game? Seems to me you have been heavily biased by ignorant critics and are willing to regurgitate their views willy-nilly without paying the slightest heed to any counter arguments. 90% of the review (if you bothered to read it) talks about ways in which the game has been GREATLY IMPROVED from previous versions. Namely in storyline, character development, and mechanics. I agree this is not a game for children but you can't blame rockstar for that. The fact that most of the demographic for this game will be pubescent teens is more a critique of our society not of the game itself. Go get a clue and stop ragging on things you clearly have no idea about.

I have GTAIII and GTA SA(unfortunately) on my games HD right now
I am not ragging. I even said it had a couple good points. Take a chill pill

Its for pubescent teens in the fact that they are the only ones who can stand to hear cliche racial remarks in every sentence of the game. Its a classless, tasteless game in which buying h0s is cool. If I am ragging on it then I am ragging on the whole series not just this one, (which i doubt is much different from the first few regardless of what this review says).

It does have some FUN points but it just isn't for everyone.(A once a month 5 star run is kinda fun) If its your cup of tea then thats awesome. I prefer a game a little higher up the "food chain" so to speak.
