love it...Pure fun...Classic GTA with a good storyline....My main quarrel is the requisite character switching- I am sure it adds some depth to the game, and they as a group have some interesting interpersonal interactions, but I like identifying with the protagonist in the story throughout the story- not having to switch regularly.
Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a former street gangster, now looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.
Grand Theft Auto V is the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar Games has yet created and takes full advantage of every ounce of processing power available in the current generation of consoles. In order to provide the best possible experience for such a massive and detailed world, the game will have installation requirements on the Xbox 360. Grand Theft Auto V will ship on two discs; Disc 1 will be used for a one-time mandatory install and Disc 2 will be used to play the game. After the install, players will be able to enjoy both Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online without any need to switch discs. This initial install will require an Xbox 360 hard drive or an external 16GB USB flash drive (sold separately) with at least 8GB of free space. If using a USB flash drive, it must be at least USB 2.0 with a minimum 15mb/s read speed and formatted for Xbox 360 use. A new USB flash drive is recommended to ensure optimal performance.
5 star...Not Bad...Immersive storyline yet fairly fast paced....I love what they have done to the game such as a new aray of weapons,gernades,and maps.(this is to say the bare minimum remember it was only a demo) In a wrap up I would say get one while you can because it is projected to be the biggest game release of all-time!
The Covenant rules the Earth — the Flood has been unleashed — and the fate of life everywhere hangs in the balance.

Hopelessly outnumbered, his outlook is bleak. But when you are bred for battle, you fight past the breaking point and bow to no one. It's all been building to this — a desperate, final war that leads to a soul-shattering climax of epic proportions. Help this incredible hero stop the Covenant, destroy the Flood and save the lives of every person on the planet.

Red Dead Redemption Game of the Year Edition also features Undead Nightmare, the companion single-player story that turns the stunning world of Red Dead Redemption upside down as a mysterious plague transforms the West into an apocalyptic fight for survival against the zombie horde.
GOOD GAME...Great rpg...The story is great overall....This could just be because of the massive dissapointment they offered up in San Andreas (what a stinker!!!) + 3.) The Minimal, but sufficient customization - I want to start by saying that I'm a character customization "NUTZOID", but I found all the different systems that were offered in San Andreas to be neat, but for the most part dead-end wastes of time.
Return to Liberty City and the cruel streets in this second take of Grand Theft Auto IV. Customizable cars let you design Niko Bellic's ride as he travels the city in search of his fortune and an escape from his past. Intricate maps and the hottest music available on the stereo make Grand Theft Auto IV a wild adventure.
Classic RPG...Awesome WRPG...Amazing game with good plot!...The Graphics are good, but we are quickly approaching saturation with current Gen Consoles...Would love to see this Game on a High End Gaming PC, I am sure it's breathtaking!

Cool game...It's OK...The story in this game is captivating....My overall rating is 4 stars instead of 5 because though it has updated content and game play with high tech weapons and gear, the game overall didn't WOW me.

Love it...Good filler...Good story line, several new weapons and characters....The multiplayer is fun to a certain extent, and it was actually better than the main campaign, which disappoints me because I consider multiplayer to be an added bonus not something to outshine the single player experience.

Love it....Good story....The story is amazing....This game is fun with friends on Multipayer but the Single player story line could have used more work, though the story line is good for getting the point across it doesn't put you deep in the story.

Your family, your friends — even your very life is taken from you in one fell swoop that leaves your soul desolate and filled with an eternal rage. Resurrected by an unforgiving spirit, you have one purpose to your life, one thing that keeps your heart pumping and your mind from giving in to the relentless grief — vengeance.

This epic tale of revenge and redemption transforms you into the most feared force in the land — the
Shadow of Mordor.

As Talion's personal vendetta unfolds, players uncover the mystery of the Spirit that compels him, discover the origin of the Rings of Power and confront the ultimate nemesis.
Great fps...cool game...it looks realistic and the story line rocks!...Almost a Halo killer, well perhaps it is, I am a Halo fanboy tho :P, anyway the only issue with this game, I have anyway, is the linear campaign, overall fantastic!
Great game...I love it!...Good game and storyline...A little too much like Dragon Age 2 and not enough like Dragon Age Origins, in my opinion... But still solid.
