Great review and expected nothing less now to read the extras. I do like this new format.

Personally, I didn't like the review. It felt like a summary and seemed to finish just as it got going. Some games suit 300 word reviews, others feel as if the review is constrained by the limit.

Yes, there are extra things to read, but I really don't see a need to limit every single review to the same format. But then I guess I've never felt the need to line all my books up via the Dewey decimal system or organise my Blurays by title, director and genre either.

I spat my water out laughing at the last paragraph.

This review does what good reviews do: tells you in no uncertain terms if the game is worth your time. Big fan of the way Videogamer does it nowadays.

10/10 I think i always expected as much but its great to see it confirmed.
I seriously can't wait till morning, i'm off to game for 8am back home for half past and then i'm spending all day with this beast, oh and plenty of strong coffee.

What's the worst thing about GTA V?

Kudos with this 300 word review, I thought that the format for this game would be abysmal, but you seem to have pulled it off, well done!

Edit: Oh, and is it better than The Last of Us?

Not sure the two can be compared, i obviously have not played GTA V yet but i'm sure there will be a lot more fun to be had with it. At the end of the day i think it will come down to personal preference with games such as these TLOU and GTA V are just two very different breeds and equally great.

    Is it really? GTA 4 had the same critic hype going for it, 10/10 EVERYWHERE.. But when i got it i hardly felt it even deserved to go above 9 and i know tons of people who got bored with it half way through..

    That doesn't seem like the mark of a 10/10 game... So the question is, are you absolutely SURE you aren't overhyping this?
