GTA 4 was a complete and utter let down... it got rid of all the fantastic things such as planes, bmxs, countryside, ect. ect. pretty much everything was gone... but however THIS game has it all! planes, bmxs, a MASSIVE map including countryside, a desert and even a mountain! there is sooo much to do on it, there are literally hundreds of vehicles including cars, motorbikes, pedal bikes, a monster truck, helicopters, planes, a JET! and of course all your favourite guns to use, this games has soo many things to keep you entertained and is by FAR the best GTA games to get.
