It's an excellent review - very well written.

Can't agree with you on the "R3" missions from the previous games being missing or lacking in GTA4. The side missions are the best part about it. The car text theft missions, assasination missions and most wanted/current crimes are the high point of the game. The rest? You hit the nail on the head.

Oh god the last sentence of the review was such a mess-up in terms of flow and word use. Gah. Jam man is updating it as we speak.

I thought it was a bit of a self indulgent wankathon of a review, I didnt get past about the fourth paragraph because of it.

I wouldnt normally mention but everywhere I have turned in the last 15 mins on this forum I have seen you begging for feedback on it, so there you go.

What can I say, I love to indulge, and I did have a wank in the middle of writing it, so I guess it makes sense.

Pretty dull opening page, skipped to the end, completely agree with the last paragraph.

If I were to review it myself, I'd say it's probably too long and not funny enough. And it lacks poetry. 6/10. My first draft was worse, too negative and horribly written.

But for a first review ever, I'm fairly happy. Next time I'm gonna go for a slightly more Biffo/Charlie Brookerish approach. The good people at GamingVerdict are sending me a PS3 game to review next, so watch this space. I'm going to be the biggest thing since anal sex.

Nope. Saw his tv show a while back though, it was a bit duff.

He needs to get a proper TV Digitiser going. A sort of gaming version of Screenwipe, even.

Pretty good review. Not as edgy as I was expecting from you Chase, but it reads well and I agree with your opinions on the game.

[BTW on your site, I clicked on the cover with the GTA4 lady on the front, but it linked me to a different cover with Sims on it.]

The site has been neglected mate. Working on another project at the moment, so I'll be going back to recode this at some point.

That YouTube review is piss.

Chase your review is brilliant. If anything, not quite negative enough but I agree with what you've said and it was quite eloquently written.

Chase: I agree with every word you wrote in that review.

And to think I gave this a personal 10 after a few hours of play. That'll teach me.
