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.
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.
