I've liked all the GTA's and I like this one. I think this has the best story threads by far.
But for me the some of the most fun has been taken out of this game.
The point of being a gangster on the rise is buying bigger and bigger cribs and collecting crap like cars and bikes and placing them in said cribs. Taking this out was a big mistake. Sorry if this doesn't fit with what other people think about this game.
Otherwise how do you measure the amount of money you make and that your taking over the city.
The lack of this feature is totally lame and a major muck up of a great title IMO.
i just think the controls are to slow and it makes the game play slow.......
on the positive the visuals are awsome they have done a great job at making the game look impressive. I think i just expected alot more, if you compare it to previous GTA's and leave graphics out of the question.... how much better is it?
I loved San Andreas.... i still kinda like this one but i just wanted something WOW in game play.
really this kid is 13-14 max
SHUT THE HELL up a lot of people love this game i love it we DONT CARE IF YOU DO OR NOT YOU ATTENTION punk god damn.
Um... just comparing the posts above, you look like the immature one. Sanitarium is leagues smarter and more respectable than you.
Ok i waited months for this game.....
oh so disapointed.... realise this is where everyone just loves gta and i will be flamed but come off it who els feels ripped off??
my reasons.... its just a new version of many many old gta's....
SSSSLLLLLOOOOOWWWWWW reactions to vehicle and player actions.... come on you press a button and feels like an age before anything happens!
Overrated online content..... now honestly... its just for fun you cant play it remotely competitively! its pointless!!!!
maybe i'm just used to faster paced more action packed games but i feel really let down and like what have they been doing that took so long???????????
what did you expect? A game full of flowers and sing and dance? If they made a game like that, they wouldn't give it the name Grand Theft Auto IV. There's a reason they have names for these games, and its obviously a series, being "IV" and all, so obviously its gonna have the same basic idea of a game, just new scenarios, features and updated stuff.
this is why there are many many games that are different than GTA, so you can look at the cover, look at the back, read the back... or if you cant read, take a look at the pictures, cuz those definately help you figure out what kind of game it is.
So if you wanted a game that is full of bright colors that can keep your attention, maybe pick up a Dora the Explorer game, or maybe one of the million pokemon games
Is it a good game? Yes. Is it the most critically acclaimed game of all time, like many say? No way. In my opinion, San Andreas is better than this game. I enjoyed the missions from GTAA more than IV, but there's still hope for GTA IV Missions, since I haven't complete them all. The thing I really liked about SA, is the three cities. All three cities were something different and unique. Liberty City has more detail, but it's very similar all around.
Though, GTA IV online is pretty sick. That's the thing that really saved this game for me. Now only if It would work more.......
