    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Incredibly detailed linear and nonlinear gaming experience; massive potential for strategy and tactics
    Cons: Game undoubtedly not for everyone; some minor control issues (though generally improved); occasional graphical glitches

    Summary: The Grand Theft Auto series seems to be even more controversial than the near-hysteria surrounding Mortal Kombat I remember from my 1990s youth.  I can certainly understand wanting to keep GTA games away from children, and also ... read more

    Pros: Radio X soundtrack. "Killing in the Name Of". 'nuff said.
    Cons: By now you would think they would have a "Nuke Paris" mission.

    Summary: I have to be honest with you. I'm not much of a gamer. I've played around some with Vice City after J.P finished the story line. I am still overwhelmed by the lawlessness of these games. The idea that I can approach a cop on the street and pound his ... read more
