Haven't read a single review, took a quick glance 10 from CVG, 10 from Edge, a couple more 10s. Great great. All that matters now is the game itself. Bring it home Rockstar!

As I mentioned, crashing any cars or other vehicles takes the wind out of the sails, and there's plenty of inactivity in such a big map, contradicting at least one comment from Rockstar about addressing those concerns.

 

Not to say it's entirely unexpected, but many buildings are as before too, just pretty obstacles to dot the landscape, when the map is this big, it's hard to avoid just putting things around it.

 

I'd knock the score off a 10/10 as well, but still put in the 9 range, it's got enough impressive additions for this generation to warrant it!
