Well, well, it has finally dawned upon us. If anyone was wondering what it would be like to play GTA4 as the love child between Altair (Assasins Creed) and that guy from Star wars:Force Unleashed this is the best chance you're gonna get.
Yes, it's an original idea for a game and it has many enjoyable moments throughout such as seeing the multitude and depth that went into developing Cole's powers and other abilities.
However, it also has it's flaws. Firstly the fact that most of your enemies seem to be living on the rooftops is quite irritating. Because not only does it either require time to climb up but it takes effort to aim at them from such a distance. To make matters worse it seems as if your enemies somehow have the most precise aiming skills, which is strange considering they are just supposed to be a bunch of hoodlums. Also I don't like the fact that you can't walk slowly just allowing yourself to stroll through central park. You're only able to run and sprint, now I don't know about you but I like to walk in style. It provides a sense of realism. But that's just me.
All in all, an exceptionally entertaining game, satisfying graphics, oh yeah and another thing the attitides and reactions of the citizens (in-game of course) can be a bit dull, tedious and repetitive at times so I wouldn't expect much from the AI. Very few games out there are worth paying £40 for but this just about cuts it.
All the best readers, I hope this helped. I just try and pick up on the things that other reviewers don't mention so excuse the pessimistic nature of the review. It really is a very good game...
