So after playing the game for 5 hours straight... *Spoilers*

I have come to the conclusion that it is BETTER than the hype....from the little things like people swaying side to side in your car when you turn sharply, or niko actually pushing the horn when you beep, this game is amazing, the graphics are top notch, to the big things, the moment i went on top of a crane and looked across the river/sea thingy over to the friggin main skyscraper city ( i forget it's name) whilst the sun was setting, it was simply amazing.

A few notes, pay and sprays DO affect your wanted level, when the police lose site of you, but you are still in the radius, you can go in, it fast forwards time 3 hours and then you come out good as new....cars get dirty, the car wash cleans them....noticeably dirty....Executions moves with the pistol, they are purdy nice.

Online - I had a quick go of freeplay with my mate, there was a tiny bit of lag, like cars would disappear then appear somewhere else but it was fine.

That's probably the least i can say about the game....10/10 EASILY...this game is worth it.

Online was a bit of a silly move but the servers aren't officially live yet so there will be mad lag. I really can't understand how some people get disappointed with this game saying the graphics and driving suck. Truth is they don't know a good graphics engine when they see one and they're shit at driving.

Let us know if M$ ban you lol

Let me tell you from me, the driving is fantastic, you just have to brake, the graphics maybe THE best i've seen on the 360.

Sometimes you just get the urge to go inside the fire station and just blow all the firemen away with a shot, then run out and get hit by a car...getting hit by a car has never EVER been so great.

Also, do you still get the stats like other games in the Pause Menu? Like how many miles you've travelled, bullets fired etc.
