Alright, so I was at the midnight release on the 29th, and like almost 200 people showed up we were exchanging gamer tags and PSN names, was very cool. I was one of the very first people in the world to legitly own a copy, because it was released on midnight and here Newfoundland is ahead of everyone by a hour and a half, except Atlantic Canada we are ahead by a half a hour...and I was 3rd in line.
So I got home at around 1am and played till 3am the game looks as good as it plays, plays unlike any other game ever, its so fun to do anything or what ever you want and so far missions are very, very detailed in storyline the physics in this game make it now my top fav game ever, people don't just die, they can live and be unconscious they can bleed out, I have even seen people 'pretend' to be dead and when I'm not looking they attempt to crawl/wobble get away.
You can go into almost any building that you would want to go in, and if there are people and you have a gun you can 'hold up' the joint and cops will come and surround the building I have even had swat teams with shields waiting with snipers on the buildings across the street, as hostages tried running I killed them and even one time a cop was like "Fuck this!" and ran through the door shooting at me so the hostage could crawl out after I shot his legs a few times, then after I murdered that dumb cop and started to shoot people they stormed and killed me almost instantly, fully organized.
So all in all this game, is my top and will be my top most likely for the rest of the year!
Also while I was there pre ordering the game yesterday hehe got one of the last copies that were there for the midnight release...anyway I also picked up World in Conflict, a very, very fun RTS game for the PC and not only is it very fun also it is the most realistic looking and playing RTS game, I love it so now I found two great gmaes for zero cost because I traded in 4 crappy games XD
In conclusion I believe that anyone that has a PS3/Xbox 3600 BUY GTA:IV if you have a 360 get my gamertag because this baby is online now, full city online fun! muhahaha!
