  excellent game

| | See all megadanield's reviews (36)

GTA is the best game i have played on ps3, cool visuals, varied characters, and a storyline full of twists and turns. I found the game to be very immersive you play as Niko new to america who is thrust into a world of crime. Extra moves can now be performed such as ducking behind car doors to shield from enemies, using environments as cover. Injuries that you can inflict are also alot more varied and realistic than in previous gta games. The in game
music is cool and chat show radio stations such as WKTT are funny and also have the trademark dark humour style of the gta games. The sat nav system in cars makes getting your way around the huge in game map easier and more fun. You can also go on nights out with in game characters bowling, snooker, bars gameplay is fun and immersive combat and targeting vastly improved and i reccomend this game to ps3 owners.

To start of with this game is very addictive and you will find it hard to put down the controller. This is the first GTA game I have played and I was very amazed at now much effort has gone in to the city the posters on the wall the people walking around even plaines going over the sky now and then The music is also great and sometimes its nice to just cruise around just so you can listen to the radio lol anything from Queen to Smashing pumpkins.
The missions are short and varied but some are harder than others obviously. most of which consist of getting in a car (stolen or otherwise) drive to pick up a friend or collegue (usually another gangster) and then take him or her to the mission destination and then you shoot-out
The only things I can say about this game that lets it down somewhat is that if you die during the mission you would expect to re-load just before the mission starts like a check point but you do not. Instead you re-load at a hospital forecourt and then you have to start all over again drive to pick someone up then drive all the way back to the mission location etc this can delay you by 10 minutes just to get back to the point where you the previous time. But to make up for it you can walk away from that particular mission at any time and start a new one and come back to the un-succsessful one later. The second thing that lets it down is that the combat has a somewhat mechanical feel to it.
if you want to creep up on an enemy and you hit the Hide behind something button the camera angle swings all over the place and the next thing you know your facing away from the enemy or worse directly in his line of fire but you get used to these things pretty quickly and overall this game is freakin great fun. Its a must have but Id say its more of an experience than an actual game in that you really enjoy it but you dont really have to take the missions too seriously just have fun with it. Id give this 8/10. definite must experience.
Ps the game is HUGE

Even though no GTA can match up to vice city with its amazing sound track and story line but GTA IV really does give you something to talk about.

  the best

| | See all KeithJamesMiles's reviews (15)

this is by the best and biggest grand theft auto game yet, on all the others the first island is usually the most expansive and the rest are small, but with this one it's just keeps getting better with each island. so if your a fan then buy this now, if your not then buy it anyway and join in because this set a standard when it first came out and sure that standard has been passed now, but when this came out there was nothing that came even close to matching the quality this game has.

  Amazing Game

| | See all PurPleFlame's reviews (3)

This game is a must for all PS3 Owners. It offers a great experience and total freedom.

Driving in GTA IV is considerably improved from previous games. although its not perfect but would suffice in quick getaways.

I Bought this Platinum Version in 6 days it was shipped to my country :) inside the box is a detailed map of liberty city and a small guidebook (which is very vague compared to other manuals and game guides in other games)

Conclusion: BUY BUY BUY!!!!
