The characters! The storytelling! The atmosphere of the ugly city! The criticism of the "american dream"! It all works great and makes a masterpiece in the GTA series. If you manage to get over the problems with Games for Windows LIVE, Rockstar Social Club and the fact it is poorly optimized for PC in general, then I am sure, you will LOVE it!
I can understand those complaining about Grand Theft Auto IV, I can see that there is way less stuff to do if you compare it to Grand Theft Auto San Andreas -and GTA V, of course-, but GTA IV is a step further into the series. My favourite GTA until GTA V was released. The game is obviously fun, you just have to know how to have fun with all the "toys" you got there. This is not a game to go crazy and destroy everything you see with your rocket launcher (but you could do that), this is a game with a different pace focused on the story, which is just brilliant. Niko Bellic is an extraordinary main character, and all the others in screen make it look like a movie (outstanding facial animation helps). It might not be the craziest GTA ever, but it was the most necessary one to get the series to a new level.
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.
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!
