    I didn't read it because of apparently spoilers but that score is ridiculous (both versions are the same).

    10/10 for graphics? There is no way know this is the best graphical game going around.

    I've seen the gameplay in motion, even on a grainy youtube screen, the animation looks very sick. And I think the graphics get a boost when the game is such a huge endeavor size wise.

    i know on a screenshot I saw the trees looked water-color painted. Pretty bad. But I guess you cant expect great, when the maps are so big.

    I have no doubt at all the game is good/great whatever. But it is not perfect and isn't a 10.

    IGN have always been a GTA leg humper though.

    waiting to see what Gamespot has to say
    OXM gave it a 10 too

    personally, I just can't see any game getting a "PERFECT" rating
    IGN gave it to Zelda too, and it was extraordinary, but not perfect either

    It basically implies no game will ever be better than it.

    I hope they have a demo of it for the PS3.

    Plus, its a game that bases a lot of sales on hype. A demo would kill the anticipation.

    it would also take FOREVER to download, being such a big map and everything.
