    Dunno why anyone would be desperate enough to go and buy this at midnight! Isn't it just vice city with a bit more freedom and eye candy?

    Didn't think about this at all. As I am working nightshift I'll try my local tescos then come back and start playing it at work. I'll be playing this and getting paid at the same time :D

    Im getting mine with a shiny new PStwo at about 10am, shop opens at 7am but im not that desperate for it.

    Its going to be my first GTA experience, hope it lives up to all the hype.

    I thought of the Tesco idea earlier but just read in another thread that a guy rung Asda to see if they would sell it at midnight but they replied they will be selling the game at 8am not midnight.
    Will Tesco be selling the game at midnight for definate? I have to be up at 5 20 am tomorow so dont really want to go to tesco and find they wont be selling it untill 8.

    I stuck it on for a bit the other day but GTA games aren't really my thing. If you like the others then you'll like this it's more of the same really - nice graphics although the fuzzy effect is a bit weird!

    Kinda hard to define as the whole experience is so huge.. you have to work yourself through the mafia underworld in general terms but the game is so much more than that.. it brings all genre's like driving, shooting etc in one package. I kinda see it as a whole 'virtual world' where you can do almost anything you choose! :clap:

    Yeah I must say i'm a sports & driving games man myself and whilst this is a good game that will appeal no doubt to quite a few people, I can't really be arsed with it. I enjoyed driving around and smashing up the bikes & cars that i'd nicked but couldn't be bothered with the missions. I'll probably give it another bash sometime but I find that these games take up too much time and that's precious time that could be spent playing PES4! :thumbsup:
