i got this game on the release day, the special edition is worth the money, the items are actually better than the game itself. This games graphics are terrible and very blurry and jaggy. i dnt see one single bit of hi-def at all. the gameplay is quite good but u spend most of the time driving about in cars which are rubbish to handle. it is too overly hyped. sorry guys but this is the truth

First off what a lot of people have been saying about the dark graphics is true, it is a little bit hard to see sometimes but that definitely doesn't ruin anything, in-fact thats about the only fault i have found, the driving is fine people are making a fuss about it but its good, it's Grand Theft Auto not Gran Turismo. trust me if u like the previous GTA's then no question whether to get this. And if u just fancy beating people up and nicking cars this is class... In a league of it's own as far as I'm concerned :) Cheerz Play

  BEST GAME EVER!

I was so looking forward to playing GTA 4 and I wasn't let down when it came. The gameplay and options seem endless! The amount of missions and the storry line are fantastic, certainly am not gonna get tired of it. I would highly recomend the special endition too as the goodies are awesome!

  Absolutely Amazing!!!!

  The Greatest Game Of All Time

| | See all MJSMUFC99's reviews (18)

In This Edition of Grand Theft Auto IV We play as Niko Bellic a Russian exile who is lured to Liberty City by His Cousin Roman..... This is where it starts! The Gameplay of this game is amazing.
With the euphoria engine anything is possible! When shooting someone through a window in the car their body clamps forward which then starts the horn!
Amazing! this is just one of the great things the euphoria engine can do!also the realism of the driving, the characters and the public makes this game one of the greates games of all time! not just this the city spawns miles and shows much realism to NYC! Rockstar games have given the gamer everything they wanted but they have giving us much much more with this game.
There is only 1 question left! Can Grand Theft Auto get any better?

  Legendry - oh yes!

  Worth the money?

| | See all PrettyxLush's reviews (18)

absolutely. £40 for the game is pretty good, but for an extra 30 you can have the safety deposit box (pretty decent size aswell) the fantastic art book, to which i was only expecting a few half decent pictures, a keyring, a C.D containing some great tracks (probably worth at least 6 or 7 quid by itself, and the duffel bag which is pretty smart if you ask me. Definately one for the die hards, but a great collectors item for anyone. It even comes togethor in a nice box. Would definately recommend to anyone. Will also write a review on the game as it deserves a 5 star rating by itself

  One of the best special edition releases ever.

This is a review for the special edition extras, check the game on its own for my review in a few days.

My copy just arrived at work this morning and I was eager to open the parcel to get to the box inside.
First off, the package is all held inside a card box with a large peice of official art over it, but its whats inside thats important.

The first thing you will see is the metal safe-deposit box, with the games logo embossed on the lid. The keys to lock it are inside the box, though the keys dont fit in properly, you only have to stick the tip in to turn the lock. That aside, the metal box is very sturdy, and will do a good job of protecting whatever you put inside.

Putting the game aside, you'll find a card envelope with 'The music of Grand Theft Auto VI', which holds a selection of the songs used in the game. It has a nice seceltion, but I was surprised it wasnt put into an actual CD-case.

Next is 'The art of Grand Theft Auto VI' which has a mix of things. Along with including various in-games shots, promotional art and images from the development of the game, it also contains a few sections of text, talking about what the creators experienced when preparing to make the game and what they had to face when bringing the series to the new console generation. Probably the best part of the extras.

Along with this, you'll find the keychain with the Rockstar logo, its a fairly chunky piece and is nicely made, very nice to hang your keys from.

Finally, the duffel bag, when you pull it out of the box, it may see a little small, but once you unfold it and open it up fully, its actually a rather nice size. Its made from some decent material and comes with a shoulder-strap that you can clip-on, wear it with pride!

In all, this package is quite fantastic, and is well worth the extra £30. Theres no other special edition like it, so get it while you can!
