Reviews for Grand Theft Auto IV

Its just.... OK

I actually like the gameplay and storymode but this one has a lot lesser things to do once you completed all the missions and gets boring on the open world compared to GTA San Andreas and GTA V. But it is enjoyable and had lots of fun times playing it along with the jokes they did. I'd say the graphic is nice and the physics isnt that bad. Worth a buy.

A classic title

Well, I'm a man who was raised with GTA games (GTA 1 and 2). I liked Vice City and San Andreas and GTA IV was a piece of innovation for the series. For the first time GTA had superb graphics and they are so even today. The story of immigrants is very good and it connects to nowadays problems. I loved that you could enter buildings and I loved the new system of running away from police The game is extremely long as for a XXI - century game, it takes about 20 hours to finish it so it's a must play I recommend it to everyone!


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!

Underrated masterpiece

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.

Best story in the series

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.
