I am fully convinced that Rockstar paid off IGN, and every other game reviewer that gave this frustrating angry bee’s nest a perfect score. It is not 10 worthy. Not even close.
Yes there is a lot of attention paid to detail. The voice acting is good and yes the story is very um… long. None of that changes the fact that the game’s controls are infuriating and that the majority of the missions are basically repetitive.
I’m on what I am assuming is the last mission right now and just trying to lock onto someone that I’m actually aiming at is like trying shove a glass of water through 400 pound opera singer. It’s frustratingly impossible and smelly. Up to this point I’ve played the same mission at least 3o times. Chase this car, kill this guy, go on a date etc etc etc… This game reminds me of Spider-man 2. It’s a ton of fun to wander the city and the level of detail is impressive but that doesn’t stop the missions from getting boring.
I think I’d have given this game an 8.5. If you ask me Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is a heck of a lot more fun and the story’s 10 times better.
