What does the American dream mean today? For Niko Bellic fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape from his past. For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity. As they slip into debt and get dragged into a criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't.
Great game but Needs A good computer for sufficient Graphical detail.
a stupid concrete city
where no place to go
san andrease better
One of the best GTA's so far.
I was playing the missions more than messing about, as I felt there was not too much do in between them, but exploring the city was fun, evading the police and doing the police jobs etc from time to time after accessing the different parts of the city.
Money, like the previous games, seemed too easy to acquire. I had thousands and nothing to really spend on very early in the game or throughout.
Dislike the dating and constant nagging from people calling to go out, while they do have benefits eventually, be better if they did not call you quite as often, the responsibility would ideally been yours.
The missions were not too difficult, though the finale in the air was somewhat difficult with the mouse control.
The atmosphere is much more immersive, and the physics and interaction of vehicles was very enjoyable, it made crashing not so bad, and even quite enjoyable at times for really big pile ups.
It only leaves little to do after you complete the game, as pretty much you only earn money it does not really offer much drive to do any odd-jobs. Whereas previous GTA games you could earn the best cars or weapon pick-ups at your safe houses.
I will have load it up again and replay through with some major mods.
The best game of the GTA-Series!!
Grand Theft Auto 4. I was completely amazed with this game. The gameplay was fun and addicting, the graphics were stunning, and the story was amazing. I feel that this is the best game in the series, mostly because the amazing story. I felt that the story showed more emotion then in the other games. Not saying that the other games are bad, I love the original GTAs, but GTA IV is just downright awesome. And the Multi-Player was a blast, just me and a couple of people roaming around the vast city that is Liberty City, doing whatever we want. This game is a must have if you're a fan of the Grand Theft Auto series.
One of the worst ports ever made to PC (it would rival with Saint Rows 2). Thanks to this game, Rockstar had to change policies and with GTA V they learned from mistakes. There is no exact way to play this game because the hardware that works for some does not work for others and so on. The story is very boring and full of Russian stereotypes with mafias. Nico is a bad character for not having personality and the cousin is a submissive idiot.
Only because I think 8.8 is a little too generous, I want to tip the balance in my favor.
Best Game Ever
to me this game really defines a true Grand Theft Auto experience. from a small time crook slowly climbing up to the top into a successful criminal and terminate anyone who get's in your way, and there was a lot of conflict and surprising events throughout the whole story.
besides the story of the game, this is the first GTA game on the HD universe so this is a rather special one because of it's revolutionary leap from GTA:SA to this, like GTA III first appear on the 3D universe. The Graphics are not bad compare to any other games but what we get instead is the brilliant gameplay that GTA:IV delivers also the character Niko Bellic is a very unusual compare to any other GTA protagonist. Through out the whole game i have a feel for Niko, little by little pieces of the puzzle started to come together and revealed a lot to tell about the character's background.
and nowadays GTA:IV can even look better than GTA V with the ENB mod community providing different presets according to your liking/taste and graphic card capabilities and tons of vehicle mods and scripts to complete your GTA experience whether to make it more realistic or more fun to play. overall it's a brilliant game sadly Niko Bellic wouldn't be appearing in any other Grand Theft Auto series until Rockstar have found a new replacement for the voice acting of Niko Bellic
Niko Bellic is faar way my favourite character after Carl Johnson appears on GTA:SA
