Overall Review: Let me start off by saying I am by no means a "Tech Wiz", or a "Hardcore Gamer" so take this review with a pinch of salt and take it for what it's worth. I was a bit skeptic of buying this game on Newegg because some of the reviews had stated that some people had problems with their downloads. Some people had also stated on other sites that it's better to just buy it off of Steam, and to be honest I don't know what the difference is, gameplay wise, between getting it on Newegg and getting it on Steam (besides the achievements you get on Steam). But anyways, as a cheapskate, there was no way I was turning down a promo code on top of a discount ( $33.99 at the time of purchase). So I decided to take a chance and purchased the game. A few minutes later I get the email from Newegg with the activation code, went online to activate it, and I was able to start the download right away without any problems! I don't know maybe, I just got lucky? Well after the super long wait of the 62 GB for the game (3 Hours!), I started the game and everything was as smooth as butter! I don't have the best gaming rig out there, mind you. But this game is just very well optimized, from my experience anyways, I just left the settings on default so it has some settings on Normal, High and Very High and I'm able to maintain between 47-55 fps in the city and a solid 60 fps (V-Sync enabled to prevent screen tear) in the country and other areas! I'm sure if I was to tweak some settings I would get some better fps in the cities but ehh, I'm happy with what I'm getting already. Slapping a "money making woman on a corner" has never looked so beautiful. I guess if I had to say something "negative" about this game, it's that the stinkin download time was 3 hours long!...3 ....hours. And the fact that there are hackers on Online mode. But, that is not Newegg's fault, it's Rockstar's. I'm completely satisfied with my business with Newegg and the reason I wanted to write this review is because I wanted to let other's, that are kind of skeptical about buying this game because of the ratings and some of the other reviews, know that this was not the case with me. It sucks to see that others had problems with their download and I hope they got it resolved but my experience was the complete opposite. I see that this promo is good until tomorrow, so if you are trying to decide whether or not you should get it, I say "For $33.99 Heck Yes You Should!" ...or you could wait for the Steam sales coming up soon, might be cheaper. I'm a cheapskate but not a patient one Lol.Happy gaming!
