I picked the special edition version up at Midnight with my best friend and then I called in sick to work the next day. This game has the best story line that truly makes feel for the main character Niko. The dialogue is amazingly realistic and the missions are unique and allow you to beat them at your own pace. (very few timed missions are a plus). Bottom line on single player... detailed, humorous, engaging and dramatic.
Now to the part of the game that puts it over the top of EVERY next-gen console... Online Multiplayer! You can play with up to 16 people in a wide range of scenarios. From team deathmatch to racing, this game has it all. Its like COD4 collides with Forza 2. The graphics and city area do not change when playing online, so you have more freedom than any game out there. The multiplayer also allows you to change settings such as traffic, police, and weapons of course. (I know what you're thinking... Rocket Launcher!).
I have to stop this review now and get back into the game. If you own a next-gen console or are thinking of getting either an Xbox 360 or PS3, this needs to be at the top of your list when picking out your next game. Thank you for reading.
