Games are usually only good if they have an 18 rating. None of this dancing around the edge s**t - just get stuck in. Did ya see the blood on the car's grill on the last bit of GTA news! I have to play this game....

By the way, speaking of the game being out on the 29th; Blockbuster (in my area - not sure about anywhere else) are saying that powers are trying to release the game earlier - lets hope this is true.

Game ratings is not a problem here in India, Even a ten year old kid can walk into a store and get a 18+ dvd. Although it may affect the sales for the company.

Nearly every GTA game is rated 18+, not a surprise. If I went to pick up the game on the release date, the guy would totally give it to me. In 2004, a few months after SA was released I just went to the shops and the guy didn't give a shit.

I can't really say im suprised to see the 18+ on the game cover, and it's normal with in the GTA games. I would actually be quite suprised if the game rate were lower.
