I've primarily always done software deployments through script driven
installations because there is so much more flexibility.

You should check out a product called WPKG, which is a script driven
deployment system that you can very easily use with Group Policy. It's
very neat.

I was deploying software via Group Policy for a time, but found that
with each package in sysvol, I started having concerns about the size of
sysvol, and the amount of time for replication with over 800 DC to
replicate too.
