    I was leaving for work this morning, when the courier arrived with a big brown box containing my new PS3 and GTA4 bundle, then I had to leave, cant wait to get home and rip the box open.

    Me too now. Both feature 'actors' and 'stuff happening'. Must be that.

    It's moments like that when one develops a chronic onset of <insert your ailment of choice here> and you have to phone in sick...

    What 'place'? Seeing as I'm in Lancashire, going to have a search of Blackburn and surrounding area tomorrow dinner time to see if I can find a copy. Man, I feel like Steve Irwin, only more likely to enjoy gta if I found it.

    so whats the opinion on this then. I'm going to hang back for a few weeks, got a stack of games 6ft high that i've not even touched. Is it more of the same, or does it actually bring anything new to the table?

    Have a quick shufty through this review. Sounds pant-moisteningly good.

    Some quotes from it:
    Watch the people and you'll witness some amazing things. At one point, I saw a woman stopped at a light, looking in the rearview mirror right before she was rear-ended by a man ogling a girl on the street. The man got out of his car and went to the woman, checking to see if she was okay. This had nothing to do with Niko or a single action I took. These were the citizens of Liberty City going about their day. And it was just one moment in a day full of incidents.
    As an added twist, GTA IV gives you occasional morality choices. There are people that you don't have to kill in a mission and you can decide whether or not to waste a bullet. These events don't change the plot or open new missions later on. Occasionally it affects dialogue, but more often it is simply the game asking what kind of person you are. And there are some gut-wrenching decisions you make at points that create an emotional response I never imagined I would get from a Grand Theft Auto title.
    I should mention that the driving has also seen an upgrade from past Grand Theft Autos. Rockstar's RAGE engine coupled with NaturalMotion's Euphoria engine creates a game world with some stunning physics. Each brand of car handles differently (you can actually see the suspension in action as you make sharp turns). What will really surprise people is that these physics work with characters while in cars. So Niko's weight shifts to one side as he makes a turn and his head snaps forward when he slams the brakes. There is also a full neurological system built into Niko so that his body knows how to react to other objects. At one point I drove an ambulance off a high stunt jump. The cinematic camera swung around to show Niko taking his hands off the wheel and covering his face before impact.
    Did i mention they gave it straight 10s?

    If you are going to get the game and then pull a sickie make sure you get the game delivered to home otherwise your boss might do this.
