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.
New high resolution technology brings Liberty City to life with even more stunning graphical detail
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

GTA 4 is a new version of gta 3 which is all based on NEW YORK type game play. Everyone wants to get into NY asap. For those guys this game is like a god xd. Excellent vehicle handling...completely changed form san andreas...marvellous multiplayer gameplay to hang out with your buddies. One of the freaking thing is watching statue of liberty beat up to its heights lol..it got one amazing heart (beating alive) in it. Interesting features !!

GTA IV has the most personality, the most likeable characters, and easily the most engrossing story of any game in the series. It still looks amazing, it's a massive world, and at least in singleplayer, there seems to be more to do than even in GTA V. Between the internet cafe, dating, pool, bowling, etc. It controls freat, the story is stellar, the writing is excellent, I adore side characters like Roman and Brucie, and the quests are more varied and fun that the rest of thenseries. Plus, mods are a thing

Even with the release of GTA V, GTA IV still has be regarded as an amazing game, from the story that was the first to introduce mission decisions (such as who lives or dies) to the realistic driving phyics to the multiplayer that I stuck over 200 hours into, GTA IV is nothing short of amazing and will go down as yet another gaming milestone that R* can claim.
Not as bad as you might believe!Ho0pz4sho | May 2, 2015 | See all Ho0pz4sho's reviews »
For me, GTA IV was a minor step-down from GTA:SA. Mostly because the open world that the game takes place is simply smaller than that of the previous game. Of course, the graphics and the story are absolutely astonishing, but I just couldn't get over the fact that the whole game had to take place in a gloomier and more constricted world than the vast open-world that I was used to. Nevertheless, GTA IV is an amazing game, offering hundreds and hundreds of hours of gameplay, both through the main story and side stories. Action-wise it's more complex than the other games, and that's a big plus.

There's not much to tell about it you probably don't know. The game got released in 2008 first for the consoles and a few months later for the PC. Gamers all over the world have complained about how bad the PC port was. And it really was. However, the developers kept updating the game and it got slightly better and finally, thanks to the modders, you can get much realism in GTA4. The story much differs from San Andreas' one and is not "that dark". However, people seem to like the protagonist - Niko. I do, too. He's a cool character and R* did put passion and work on the model (not only on Niko, but all models are much more detailed than in GTA:SA). What I'd love to mention are the graphic mods which can make your game look similar to GTA5. Let's see what future will bring us.
