Great 100%

Greatest game i've played in my entire life. This was the first video game that i've played for more than 8 hours and is still addicting to me in 2020, even more addicting with Mods that improve the gameplay of Grand Theft Auto IV. It is still interesting if you played it a lot of times.

Positive points
- Lots of realism inside the game and it's engine. Many examples include: Car Physics, Handling, Euphoria Movement, AI Behavior and etc. - Huge graphics improvement from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City St... Read More
Negative points
- Car handling can sometimes be very weird and awkward when going at very high speeds (about more than 100+ km/h), some include having a chance of crashing and going sideways. - Lots of beta features ... Read More

Alright 80%

GTA 4 is somewhat different from its predecessors. A big graphical jump from the previous versions of GTA is visible and shows how much hardware changed over the years. The creators decided to go with a more realistic approach (for instance, if you crash driving with very high speed, you will literally fly from the vehicle). This makes the game feel less arcade-y, however, it is not as much fun anymore (getting into the car animation takes foreve... Read More

Alright 80%

Played the PC Windows version on Steam. GTA IV is a good game overall, aside from the horrendous optimization problems this game has over the years I've tried to make this game run with different setups. You play as Niko Bellic who just landed in the lands of opportunity by boat, bringing with him his troubled past and a reason to go somewhere else to make a living. The game is pretty straightforward if you have played any other GTA games. Wha... Read More

Positive points
- Story is good and a bit different compared to previous games with more focus on characters. - Activities and side-missions that made it from the previous games improved and not as monotonous. - Frie... Read More
Negative points
- Runs like garbage or unstable if you don't have the right hardware setup (too high-end).
- Too little activities outside of story missions.
- Friends are needy.
- Poor optimization.

Storyline

Grand Theft Auto IV follows the story of Niko Bellic, a veteran of an unnamed war in Eastern Europe, who is haunted by the betrayal of his 15 man army unit. Ten years later, after a smuggling run goes bad due to a betrayal from a partner, Niko leaves Eastern Europe[23] to escape the anger of his employer, Ray Bulgarin. After six months in the merchant navy (serving aboard the cargo ship the Platypus), and believing the stories of his cousin Roman, Niko comes to Liberty City to pursue the American Dream as well as searching for the traitor of his unit. After his arrival, however, Niko quickly learns that Roman's tales of riches and luxury were lies concealing struggles with gambling debts and loansharks, and that Roman lives in a dirty apartment rather than a mansion.
