Think this is a very good and fair article, a lot of the flaws highlighted have long had me dumbfounded as to how IV got so many flawless scores, never in a million for me, but i digress.
Only thing i'd add is something about the controls. The car handling is as divisive as i've seen with a game - i don't like them/it but learnt to tolerate it, but is that ok for a game that prominently features driving? On foot was even worse, slow, clunky, ball-achingly tedious, made the repeated shootouts all the worse, especially when you die trying to run up/down stairs or get stuck behind a wall
Sure they can't please everyone, but they can definitely make it better. I'm told by the Hairy B that RDR's controls weren't much different, maybe because the world was so much bigger it wasn't quite as noticeable? The dead-eye bullet-time thingy helped with gun fights too.
