How Rockstar May Have Affected GTA Reviews >
2008/05/28 15:30:38: Posted by DM
According to one of the Gamasutra writers, Rockstar knew exactly what they were doing by holding all reviewers to a one or two day pre-release review schedule. By doing so, most of us reviewers only had a day or two at most to get our reviews out, thus affecting the score positively. At least, that's the claim. Check it out.

What a load of crap, there are very few games that deserve the scores that GTA 4 did, but in this case I truly believe this is one game that manages to exceed the hype and be a valid 10 score. I read a magazine called EDGE and they gave it a 10 which is the 9th in 13 yrs.

It joins the very best games -

* Super Mario 64, Nintendo 64

* Gran Turismo, Sony PlayStation

* The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Nintendo 64

* Halo: Combat Evolved, Microsoft Xbox (E105)

* Half-Life 2, Windows PC (E143)

* Halo 3, Microsoft Xbox 360, (E181)

* The Orange Box, Windows PC,

* Super Mario Galaxy, Wii (E183)

* Grand Theft Auto IV, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360

I'm sure there needs to be a balance about what game publishers reveal to the press and the risk of spoilers appearing on the websites and magazines to try and lure readers.

It could be true, if so Take-Two was very smart in doing so.

I still dont see how GTA 4 get 10 !, its nothing but bigger !

The storyline is still not strong... but thats just imo !

Halo 3 is not a 10 i read that MS payed Edge to give it a 10, they also did the same for Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball they gave thats a 10 cos of microsofts's bribery.

Wait a minute Nemesis, if they did that, then dont you think the reviewers are fake ?

because they are not actually enjoying the game themself...

Nemesis, wtf are you talking about, the only games they gave a 10 to are above. Beach Volley Ball......Edge has been about the most consistent reviewer I have found, very few games even score a 9.
