OXM US review
 
9.5
+ Wounderful environment with gajillions of great things to do.
+ Multiplayer is a deep, terrific addition to the series.
- Would be even better with a little editing: it starts slowly, has a few too many "filler" missions.
? Whats in the DLC episodes?

Online

Party Mode - Invite up to 7 friends & play different online modes without ever losing them & having to send invite again.


11 Subdivisions to spawn in city
11 online ranks
Nearly 3 dozen race tracks
Call other team(s) on cell phone(even on Ranked matches)


Offline

Over 90 main story missions
Many stunt jumps are now goal oriented -Example- 1 stunt you have to land your car in the tunnel
50-100hrs long if you do all the main missions,side mission,stunt jumps, etc

Pretty good score. Hoping the beginning filler missions don't become too much of a drag.

Party mode sounds good.

3 dozen race tracks sounds great

GTA IV.... sounds awesome :D

claud3 04-21-2008 03:57 PM

What do they mean with "Too many Filler missions"?

Missions which don't really progress the story - possibly running errands etc.

Doesn't bother me, it's all gameplay :lick:

Yea I'm telling ya! The filler missions won'tt make me want to play the game less, which is stupid to mark it against the game.

Thundercracker 04-21-2008 04:18 PM

Stupid to mark against? Everything should be taken into consideration when rating a game. I'm happy they didn't give it a perfect 10.

JJagoff 04-21-2008 04:23 PM

I frankly don't see the problem, in the fact that not every mission progresses the story. Why should it? But yeah 9,5 is fine although I have a feeling it's gonna be an 11 for me.

Well, it's alittle more realistic. People will have things that'll need to be done for them before they help you or something.

this is a good read

They gave Halo 3 a better rating than GTA IV. That is like giving Police Academy a 10 and Lord of the Rings a 9.5.

Police Academy is amazing.

Worse comparison. Ever.

I'd rather watch shit dissolve than Lord of the Rings.

Olin,I'm getting about to that point with your postings.
