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.

Expanded multiplayer will require even more strategy and skill to come out on top
Custom Match allows you to pick your favorite multiplayer options and then instantly find online matches that fit
Optimized for PC controls and Xbox 360 controller

For as much as I've played this game, certainly over 100 hours, I've never completed the main storyline. This game is so packed with quests that- hahahaha. There are lots of guns and 100% freedom to run around getting the city rekt. You don't need to care about the story or the random quests. I'll tell you, those are fun too, but really you don't need to worry about any of that.
Good as always.Furrek | Aug. 2, 2014 | See all Furrek's reviews »
So GTA 4 was the first game in series that I managed to complete. Don't have wrong idea, I spent many hours in every GTA game but this one for some reason was more interesting for me. Starting from a great characters, even more great graphics and good music! As for now, it's most "realistic" Grand Theft Auto game on PC - the way people are hitted by car, how they are moving, how you fight etc. it's just something amazing. These simply things, like running at people when they are on stars and watch them falling, shows how much work develeper put in this game. Rockstar once proves that they know what they are doing and with every next GTA game they do even better and more amazing stuff. Does a game like that need any recommendation? It's a game that should be played when out, because for so many years Rockstar showed us that we can trust them. 99/100 from me because of GFWL.
You have to try it outYoman282 | July 30, 2014 | See all Yoman282's reviews »
I spent countless hours having fun in this awesome sandbox world and I must say that it's quite nice. But there are problems since this is a bad console port i'd say and it lags/stutters on a lot of configuration but with a little bit of tweaking/commands/mods you can make it better, just don't expect too much with a low-end system. So, yeah the game is nice but to be honest it could be way better. I liked good ol' GTA:SA more.
Best plot in the franchise.reginleifx | July 14, 2014 | See all reginleifx's reviews »
Though most people say it's the worst game in the franchise, I think it is the second best entry in it. Yeah, gameplay might not be as good as in previous entries if you're used to playing just to cause mayhem, but, I think it actually is a great thing, since it makes the whole experience a lot more realistic. So, no more jetpack, no more ridiculously big weapons I won't talk much about the soundtrack, but I'm going to say most radios are excellent, and they feature almost every genre you can think of. There's Latin-American music, Jazz, classic Rock, whichever genre you feel like listening to, you're likely to find it here. Now, the plot is where this game shines. At first, it feels like your regular Grand Theft Auto plot, guy comes from another city or country, gets picked up by family or friend, yadda yadda. But after a few plot twists you'll find out it's not as regular as you might think, and these plot twists and the fact that you have to make some decisions at some points of the game are, in my opinion, the best thing this franchise has introduced to any of its games. Graphics are good, but sadly, the game is terribly optimized.
An acceptable game, but does not live up to the GTA franchiseKalmado07 | June 26, 2014 | See all Kalmado07's reviews »
After playing this game for a bit I kept finding myself wanting to play San Andreas instead. I felt like this was a diamond covered in bird poop that needed to huge cleaning. Modding community has done wonders for it. I personally would rather play Sleeping Dogs.
