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.

Most people are familiar with the GTA franchise. GTA 4 is a major reason why. It has a brilliant story, one better than GTA 5 or San Andreas, and a brilliant setting – Liberty City is one of the best open worlds ever created. The setting is made better by mods, and so is the gameplay. There are mods which make this game look like a 2014 release too. However, it is let down by the gameplay mechanics. The cars don’t feel good to drive and the aiming system is mediocre. You can tell it was made before 2010. Those who dislike DRM will be disappointed as it requires GFWL. I personally am not bothered as I am always connected to the internet when I play anyway, but players have to sign in to an Xbox account if they want to save the game. If you want to play GTA 5 but haven’t played any other GTA games, buy this first and save yourself some money.

I have personally played most of the previous installments like Vice city and San Andreas and all of those were fun and exciting, but I simply cannot say that about this game. It is so generic. Sure, you can have fun for a couple of hours, but that's about it. After that it simply gets repetitive. There is only so long that driving a virtual car can keep you entertained for. If you really need a great GTA game, try out the past versions or GTA V. They are definitely worth more than this piece of overrated garbage.
Awesome, Fun Game!GeoffAussieSpy | Aug. 26, 2015 | See all GeoffAussieSpy's reviews »
These games, these open-world games are amazing. They're filled with a ton of content. So many fun things to do. The possibilities are almost endless! The story will drag you in and have you feel with the emotion and the action! I absolutely love this game and everything in it from the gameplay to exploring, and the little, tiny details in-between! The characters and very interesting and likable. The multi-player is also very cool and the games modes are awesome! I want to play through this game again and have tons of fun doing it. Not a repetitive game at all, it's very enjoyable and fun for anybody that is a fan of open-world games! It definitely still lives up to today! I very much recommend it!

As far as story goes, this may be the greatest GTA games made thus far. The New York City vibe was a great addition to the Grand Theft Auto world and allowed for a lot of fun roaming the city with a rocket launcher out blowing up everything in sight. It was also the first GTA game that allowed for multiplayer. It has multiple different kinds of game modes to play with friends, along with Free Roam where you can wonder the city and cause chaos with friends. I would highly recommend this game.

This time Rockstar took a slightly more serious approach. Niko Bellic being the first character falling into a life of crime due to the circumstances. Some players did not appreciate this but I think that it was a great way to go since the game still holds many fun side activities and free roaming. The graphics and physics engine is great even now many years after it's release. The level of detail but into this world is impressive and the story is very compelling. All in all GTA 4 is a great game for a great price.
