Let me begin by saying this game is eerily realistic. As a previous moderator of GrandTheftAuto forums . com, I have played and loved all of the previous GTAs. This is by far the most realistic game I have ever played. The ragdoll effects and graphics are amazing. Cars - the cars are very realistic. The driving, the skidmarks on the ground from your tires, the spinning of the car, you can tell they took weight and handling into effect. Objects - you can tell when you run over a metal barrel compared to an orange plastic one, very cool. The ragdoll effects - when hitting people in your car, it matters when you hit them (example: leg, arm) it sweeps them off of the ground, sends them rolling over your car. When I tried to jack a car and the guy drove off, I was still holding onto the handle and he was dragging me on the ground! AMAZING! This New York city based game is all that gamers have asked for. I don't want to go into too much detail about the game because I don't want to spoil it for possible future players. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this game. 9.8, 5 Stars

No this game is far from perfect and has allot of glitches but this is by far the best Grand Theft Auto yet. and yes i'm aware Grand Theft Auto V has better score from everyone else but IV will stand out as the best so far frome

Stop reading this and go buy the game! The graphics are astounding, the city is absolutely ALIVE with possibilities! My favorite feature of the game has to be the new and improved cell-phone interface. As in San Andreas, you will be contacted for jobs and missions via your cell phone. This time around however, they added the option to call any of your contacts for information, missions, dates, assistance, etc... But the best feature they added is the ability to switch your cell to Sleep mode, effectively disabling any incoming calls/texts and pretty much putting the storyline on pause while you enjoy the Ultimate Sandbox that is GTA:IV. What, you're still reading instead of playing?! The game's Stats screen even tracks your addiction level/longest consecutive playtime! It's that bad! You'll check it and wonder what has become of your life. The answer is simple, of course... Another GTA has graced the face of the earth and taken the world by storm! STILL reading...? One word, my friend... MULTIPLAYER!!!!
