    Angry?...

    I just take reviews at face value. Especially with Rockstar, who seems to pay companies to give them positive reviews- or mere hype does the work for them.

    How can you say best rockstar game yet when you haven't played it? That's the type of thing that kills me. At least play it first...

    To be fair, I haven't read a review persay. Just what people who have the game on a forum (proven with pictures, so they aren't just shills/fanboys) have said.

    Guy said the investigative stuff was the meat of the game and was awesome, and the shooting segments are the least fun. But that's why I'm personally interested in this game - I want something different that utilizes its technology (in this case Motion Scan) to actually be part of the game.

    If I wanted a crime third person sandbox game, I'd just go buy Mafia 2 on discount.

    That's what it looks like to me. A slower Mafia 2.

    Now, if only that game had a longer campaign... it was great for the 1 day it lasted.

    I said MAYBE R* best game yet.
    Friend worked on the game(he works for R*) and been following the development for several years PLUS like I said it mixes Shenmue with Hotel dusk. Maybe even a little ace attorney mechanics. :D

    It's nice you know someone who works on it, but doesn't mean your thoughts on it are more correct than anyone else.

    And don't get me wrong, I can't wait for this.

    Then perhabs you should you should know it's technically not a Rockstar game. I'm not sure if they actually call it one, but Team Bondi designed and did alot of the development, R* just helped with some of the development and is publishing it for them.

    I don't think you can call it their greatest game when all they really did is help a smaller company get it out.

    R* helped them with some programming and what not. But you're right, this is Team Bondi's baby, not R*. It's not supposed to be similar at all to GTA IV or RDR.
