Every crime story is a story of a search for success. The player will become Niko Bellic, immigrant arriving at the Liberty City to reunite with his cousin Roman and find the man that betrayed him and his army unit fifteen years prior to the events of the game. While protecting his cousin, Niko has to deal with loan sharks, Russian mobsters, and other gangs. After the third game, GTA brought more realism to the player, in order to make the city and its people look more believable. Street vendors on every corner will sell food that replenishes health, bars with playable dart boards, bowling alleys and even comedy clubs and movie theatres. Open world will allow players not only hang out with important NPC in order to receive bonuses and unlocks but taking girls on the dates as well, to help Niko settle. Multiplayer mode allows up to 32 players to explore the copy of the single-player city and initiate multiplayer activities, like races or Deathmatches.

So... Grand Theft Auto 4 is a big Game in itself, but what bothers me extremely about it is Windows Live! Why? Why was Windows built live with it I start GTA 4 going away (on Clo or Kitchen ...) come back from usual I expect that I am already in the Main Menu, but what is? "Please log in to the Social Club" and when I Then start game clicking comes the error Message "Social Club registration failed, Please try again." I entered password and E-mail correctly but it doesn't work! No matter GTA 4 is awesome but the Windows Live and Sacial Club thing is real schei * e! But do not recommend it. I'd rather save Money until you've had enough for GTA 5.

When I read that the Game on Windows 8.1 is not supposed to work, I got stubborn when I Bought it. It was actually the case that the Game was not running at The start and I was forced to search the Internet for Solutions. An Estimated 2 Days it cost me to make the Game run, as I did exactly, I don't know exactly myself, because I am not a computer freak and therefore only do what different Forums have advised:D The Game itself is a Lot of Fun and you can hide with it for half an Eternity. Of Course, you can't compare the Graphics with that OF GTA 5 and the Game world is also rather measly in Contrast to the one of the "latest" part, but that's not supposed to diminish the Fun of The Game. Therefore, I can't complain and am absolutely happy with it for a Price of 4 (!!!) To have got euros in an Offer ^^

In Short: Absolute Mis-buying for me. Without the external Help of IT-Spezis, it is almost impossible for ordinary Users to walk. Support for laptop/notebook and its Gaming Graphics Cards: FEHLANZEIGE. Graphics cards with more than 2GB Of VRam are not recognized, but they can find Help in many Forums. Yes, even today you still need a GfWL account for the Game next to Steam (Now called the Microsoft account), an Account on XBox-Live (you also want to be able to save your Game?) and a Membership of Rockstar Socialclub (Prerequisite for online MPlayer). So from because of it just buy fast, download and get started. Wishful Thinking, at least at the laptop. Anyone who tells you something else is lying to you ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ brazenly. Why Rockstar still doesn't shrug and take a Port of the Game on Steam, just as the other Studios left the GfWL have done, remains speculative to me. Why is there no Patch for the Game that is optimized with the new Generations of mobile Graphics Cards? Well, at The end of January 2015, I don't think anyone asks the Question anymore. P.S. My negative Criticism is due solely to lousy technical implementation/Portierung/Support. The Game Content itself remains unaffected by it. Cheerz
The game has a great story, great and well-built characters, a badass protagonist, game mechanics are really good besides some bad things here and there (well, even GTA V have its).

I finally revisited the series since I played San Andreas ten years ago! GTA IV is a good game, and it's definitely worth your time even if you are a Japanese indie-strategy lover or worse. I won't touch upon the subjects that was discussed through and through such as the gameplay (you kill and steal, duh) or the soundtrack (brilliant and authentic as always) or anything like that.

My personal experince was that in this GTA I really loved shooting. Never before assaults in the series have felt so good. Which is probably why there are lots of missions involving assaults in some form. The weapons felt different and guns make you change the playing style. This was the first game where I loved to shoot the pistol, the weapon that is usually regarded as the lamest one. Mastering the pistol is very rewarding in some sense, because when you finish storming the building full of gangsters wielding AK47s or M16s, you feel like a bad ass antihero that Niko really is.

In some sense, the game is truer-to-life than San Andreas, since there are no jetpacks or easily-stealable tanks or spy-planes. In some sense, it is not, since you can't work out to fight or run more effectively and you can't put on weight either.

As for the story, I demote the overall score from Exceptional to Recommended because of it. The story is sometimes not logical and sometimes too predictive (something like a bad action B-movie), some really interesting characters that you meet don't develop at all and die quickly. In this sense GTA IV really make you revisit Liberty City, since GTA III also suffered from the bad story (but it was kinda the first game in the series, so it was justifiable back then).
