    Yeah everybody I know is playing the damm game, even Bill. lol He’s got it for his PS3 though (so he won’t be hogging the 360 all damn day). A friend said it’s the top selling game so far. I see you play it a lot too. Maybe I’ll watch you play next week and maybe you can show how to do the wheelies…he he he

    I’ll wait for your review before I decide to buy it. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved the past GTA’s and have beat all of them; however, I’ve also sold them back to stores for credit on other stuff. After beating the game, there’s really no use for them no more. I guess I could have went back and beat all the little non-important sub missions, but it’s really boring when there is no more purpose. I’d really like your opinion on the online game play. That might be a reason to keep the game longer. Just like Madden, 2k, live, and other sports games, I’ve gotten rid of when the new versions come out. Only games I’ve kept are Socom games. Socom really is under-rated and I believe Socom Confrontation and Socom 4 will top GTAIV online gaming. Just my opinion… Maybe the reason why they don’t hit the charts too high is because they don’t get as much publicity…

    Trust me on this one, the online play ALONE is enough reason to buy this game. GTA IV is one of the few games that live up to the hype.

    Hey Ree, great review. I’ve never really gave GTA a try, but this year may be a little different. Seems like everyone you have interviewed are really into this years release. The fact that you can actually go online and play with a bunch of other people with the mindset to blow one another one up is awesome! Rather than doing this kind of violence on the streets, they can do it right at home in their personal space but that’s another story. All in all, maybe I will give GTA a try, but I need to get my ps3 fixed don’t ya think? Well anyways, I think this is one of my favorite reviews you have posted on your show. Keep up the good work Ree. Love your show bro. PEACE!
