GTA IV, at the time of its release, was able to become the world's finest game of history, and its abundant freerolls and highly graphics helped it a lot. If you're one of people who have not yet managed to play GTA IV, you are advised to run this as soon as possible. Of course, the fifth version of the title was released several years ago, with even dramatic improvements. Compared to the fifth edition, the fourth edition still has its own charm, so making Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition a blessing.
Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition is the best experience to travel and meet Liberty City in this amazing game developed by Rockstar. The first experience we got of Liberty City was in Grand Theft Auto III, now back in GTA IV, we are Niko, who just arrived and moved into his cousin's apartment to discover that the American Dream, was not true. Now he has to fight to gain his way and leave his mark in the city in the best way that made Rockstar a great game developer. This edition comes with Liberty City Stories: The Lost and Damned & The Ballad of Gay Tony. Those two are 2 completely but amazing stories that everyone should try. Recommended.
I've played GTA IV briefly, and I have to say, this game packs a punch with its content like a rocket launcher packs a punch through 3 police cars. It's big, flashy, and on fire. GTA IV had (at the time it was released, and in the time before GTA V was released) what might have been at the top of the list of "cool open world locations". Of course, GTA IV wasn't truly open world, restricting you in subtler ways like having you complete part of the story to eventually unlock better weapons and different areas of the map. You aren't really supposed to get into the airstrip. I mean, you can, but it'd be a lot easier and will require less effort to allow the story to allow you to enter anyway. The missions and side-missions of GTA IV add tons of content, and one intensely large advantage of purchasing this particular version of the game is that the Standard Edition will NOT have the Liberty City episodes that were eventually also released. It's like getting 2 whole games for the price of one (with one game being significantly larger and more completely fleshed out). Add to this the fact that GTA IV is a heavily modded game, and you also get TONS and TONS of user created content. Do you want to fly around in Iron Man's armor? Have you ever wondered what it's like to drive a boat on water? Why can't you play this game as a T-Rex? Well now you can! This game is hours of fun, compounded with hours of content worth hours more of fun. I'm sure you won't run out of things to do with this game any time soon from when you buy it. I give this game a solid 80% rating.
This is another *must play* Rockstar game. In my opinion, it is my second favourite GTA (narrowly being beaten by Vice City) and Niko Bellic is one of the standout protagonist's in the series history right up there with Tommy Vercetti. I want to add that this game can struggle to run well but if you stick to your recommended settings under the graphics menu you should be fine. If you find your FPS is low, tweak/decrease some of the options there to help out. Mine dipped here and there but for the most part it runs quite smooth and my PC is a pretty good but by no means an amazing gaming rig. You might need a Games for Windows account to play this. I see some are giving negative reviews for that but for me it was no hassle whatsoever. I just linked my XBL and Rockstar Club account and I was away. Just as a heads up, there is a well known bug on the final mission without spoiling anything. I fixed it by going into the graphics menu and making everything the highest it could possibly go and this fixed the problem. I then switched it all back when I got pass that segment of the mission. Hope this helps anyone out there!
While Grand Theft Auto 4 might be considered one of the weakest in the series as far as the plot goes, the gameplay was actually pretty solid and nothing to complain about, but it felt like it was missing something with characters. Both DLC, Liberty City Stories The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony make this game worth it - great characters, making great use of the city, at times it almost feels like worthy successor to Vice City! It adds easily another 20 hours to the main game, so if you're wondering if you should get vanilla 4 or complete pack, go for complete, because both DLC are real high quality.
