I played for about 4 hours last night. Let's get the easy dumb questions out of the way first:


Is it awesome? Yes.

Is it fun? Yes.

Can you still (insert your favorite GTA action here)? Yes, but you can't fly planes.

Now let's try to be more comprehensive.

Graphics

GTA4 is a pretty game. It's not a spectacular looking game, it's just good looking. The textures are ok at best. But that's ok considering the scale of the game. It seems to run at a smooth 30FPS until a lot of carnage is on screen then it'll chug a little. No big deal. No worse than Saints Row does. One thing is for sure, the game looks great... But not as great as the screen shots in magazines lead you to believe. All of the cut-scenes are done in better detail but still in-game (like Halo3). Over all, the game looks great. When in the helicopter looking down on the city, you can see every thing. Totally awesome. It also does not load between the islands.

The details is what makes it shine. All of the cracks on the street. The junk on the floor. The crumbling bricks. The broken glass. Lots of details make the world look real and alive.

Control

Finally, gun play is actually possible in a GTA game. But it still falls short of Saints Rows scheme. Saints plays like a TPS (basically FPS controls with the guy on screen). In GTA, you need to have a weapon equipped (no biggie) but to bring up the targeting reticule you need to hold the left trigger. It's not a terrible control scheme, but you can't really shoot with out pulling out the reticule. And when it's out, you move sluggy and the camera pans close to an over the shoulder view. Again, better than previous GTA's, but still behind Saints.

They've also added this generations favorite new feature. A cover system. Pressing LB while behind something allows Niko to cover Gears of War style. Pressing LT will bring him out of cover to fire. Helpful, but not perfect. A welcome addition if you ask me.

Car controls had a major overhaul. Major. No more flying around town doing spectacular stunts in your stolen taxi. Sedans (especially old ones) drive like F'n family cars and sports cars drive like sports cars. Patriots (GTA's Hummer line) drive like sluggish heavy buses, and they all feel great. When you first play this, you will crash a lot before you realize that the driving is a LOT more sim-like then ever before. Feels great though. Once you master the new driving style (it will not feel at home to veteran GTA players), you will enjoy it ten fold.

All of your basic GTA control are there. Niko can swim and change clothes, and all of the other side stuff. Controls are solid.

Sound

This is where GTA (all of them) would get a 10/10. They put so much detail into everything, it's amazing. The car engines all sound unique. The pedestrians seem to have a HUGE library of vocals. there's a ton of radio stations packed to the top with great songs and awesome commercials. The production on this stuff is second to nothing. I won't elaborate on it, because you'll see soon.

Lazlo is back.

Story

You know the deal here. You're Niko Belic. You came from abroad, yadda yadda yadda. It's a very engaging story line. No complaints here. I just don't want to accidentally spoil stuff.

Multiplayer

Haven't done too much multiplayer. Mostly did party mode. This allows you and friends to roam around the same city causing rampages. There's nothing to do, no missions, and no cops to chase you. Just you guys and a city... This is surprisingly fun. Suck that cops weren't there.

I also tried Death Match. This allows the host to select a piece of the city (he picks anything from a few block to the whole city) and you guys fight to the death in it. It's ok, but the broken gun mechanic makes it tough.

The Game

Read this very carefully... Grand Theft Auto IV does nothing new. It doesn't do anything you haven't seen before. I would actually say that it does quite a bit less than San Andreas. They've removed planes (good reason, there just isn't room) and character customization (loved this about Saints). I do not think this will be game of the year. It's just more GTA. That is not a bad thing. But game of the year need to innovate and do something. This does not (or not yet from what I've played) try anything new. It's just good old proven GTA formula with fixed gun play and next gen graphics. I don't think this will be the do-all end-all game of games people are looking for.

It is a phenomenal game. It just isn't new.

One note on the Free for All MP mode. The host can turn cops on.


As with the other MP modes, the host has plenty of options to customize the experience, from setting the level of traffic, to turning cops on or off, to the time of day, to weapons available and so much more. This also includes setting a time limit if you don't want Free Mode to last forever.

I've been thinking of actualy canceling my pre-order. I was never big into the GTA series anyways because it is literally the same thing over and over. Jack cars, run around, shoot cars, blow stuff up, and keep doing that for 30 hours. I think I'm going to wait and see how the multiplayer turns out before buying it. There should be a lot of new and engaging stuff for a game that takes years to make. Sounds like GTA and Madden are in the same boat when it comes to creativity. The game I'm looking forward to is Force Unleashed.

I decided that I am going to trade my XBOX 360 Arcade for an Elite because the 2 year replacement plan will not cover the hard drive if I buy it separate. I couldn't have had better timing too. I can use that card for CoD4 for 360 or something else. :D

Assuming it's visually identical (it looks like it: http://www.joystiq.com/2008/04/29/gta-iv-comparison-video-between-xbox-360-ps3/ ), I would go with the 360 simply because of the DLC. Not sure how significant it is yet, but the prospect of downloading a new island or 10 new characters all with missions is too interesting to sit on.

A lot of people have had their game freeze at the beginning. I am pretty far in the game (working for Dimitri) and had it happen to me. There were two freezes that only lasted for about ten seconds before the game started up again. I now save often.

In spite of this, the game is growing on me. The combat system is so much better this time around.

A few comments about the game.

This is my first exposure to the GTA series. I am glad I decided to try it out.
Granted, the graphics do not have the "wow" factor that Gears of War or Uncharted: Drakes Fortune provide, but they are still beautiful. Liberty city looks gorgeous, especially looking from a distance. I love the comic book-like concept drawing. One of my favorite aspects of the graphics is the weather. I drove through foggy conditions, and the fog looks so realistic. Looking at the car lights through the fog made me think "wow". The rain looks great too. I love how the road really feels slippery when it rains.
The controls are great. The car driving gameplay reminds me so much of Burnout Paradise. Controls are intuitive and easy to learn with the tips that the game provides.
Another one of my favorite aspects of the game is its attention to detail. The depth of this game is fantastic. For example, if I run past people on the sidewalk they will say something. If I slam into someone with my car, either Nicol or his passenger will make a comment. There are so many side jobs and minigames that you will be playing this game for a while. The cell phone adds quite a bit to the game.
Finally, the dialogue is hilarious. Nicol is a very likable person.

All-in-all, an awesome game.

I'm about to take a $25 hit on GTA 4, and I don't care.

I was struggling with which version to buy for weeks leading up to the launch date of gta, and conventional wisdom said to go with the 360 for various reasons. So on the day it came out I call those little turds at Gamestop. "o yes we have 5 of the 360 versions, come on down no problem..."

so i was all excited, and get down there and they tell me they sold all 5 within the last 20 minutes...so i asked if they had ps3 versions by chance, and of course they had a thousand of those....so i contemplated and the dude told me he had it for ps3 etc etc etc...so i got it for ps3

now, its not BAD on ps3, aside from the freezing, and inability to connect to multiplayer, if the ps3 was my only console i would be happy with it....but its been bugging the **** out of me for days that i screwed up and shoulda got the 360 version....

so now im gonna bite the bullet, and take it back, trade it in for the 360 version....is that stupid? probably....do i care? no

I just rented the game as of now, but when it gets to start a new game screen it just keeps going on and on. (Ps3 Version.) I let it go for 30 minutes and it just kept going and I just turned it off, anyone else have this problem? And know how to fix it? Or is it just defective?

I bought the game..I like it. I don't think it deserved a 10 but I'm only at "Shadow"..so we'll see. I personally think the best part of the game is the dialogue. I keep calling Little Jacob hoping he has something for me to do because so far the rastas are hilarious. I played the MP last night. It's..fun. I don't know how long it will hold my attention though. I bet Cops n' Crooks though is really fun if you have good teamwork. I just don't know the maps well enough so when people ask me "where are they" I have no clue. I still wish you could customize your character (face, etc) and am hoping there are different clothing stores because this russian shop has some awful clothing. I look like a pervert if I wear glasses.

The game would be so much better on the PC just as all of the other GTA titles have been. All of the mod capabilities give the game a ton of life beyond what the game already gives. Now R* is being mum on when it's coming out. *******s need to get on it.

The clothes dont get much better. Its sad how much they've dropped the customizable characters and buyable property. Those were the two biggest changes to Vice City and San Andreas.

The mods are the best for multi player, not single player. This is also why Rockstar went all out on the MP modes, so that they could hold the fans at bay. MP modifications were extremely popular in GTA SA, and will surely be even more popular when this game hits PC. Modders always come up with the best MP ideas.

Not episodic content, which is the only reason to play the game again. Whatever the PS3 has wont be able to compete with what the 360 is going to have. Cars, clothes, guns, maps are all fine and dandy but if theres nothing to actually do with them (IE: episodes) then whats the point?

And again, considering the money M$ shelled out to get that exclusive episodic content, i'm guessing it'll be pretty good. Maybe not 'entire cities' like they said, but still enough to merit owning the 360 version over the ps3 version.

Im fairly certain the PS3 color issue is the one I've read about being quite common. Some PS3 owners have said theres an easy fix for it but Im not sure if it's the same issue you are having or not. May want to look into it if you haven't already.

sadly there's only 4 shops and since like every 5 missions or so you're forced to wear a suit, there's no point in NOT wearing a suit the whole time.

I didn't like SA so much.

Vice City is my favorite closely followed by GTA4.

The clothes shops open up as you unlock them. Only one is on the first island and then there are more on the other islands.

As for cheat codes, hit up on the dpad to bring up your phone, then hit up once more so you cand ial numbers. then hit the green call button.

you could alter the appearance, make him buff or fat, change the hair, actually decent clothes to buy, etc etc. The user modification nature of SA was great, and why Rockstar just abandoned it was weird.

Also, the bikes, the jetpack, the planes, this was new stuff.

And then the sheer mass of that game was and still is unparalleled.


GTA4 is fantastic, but i totally understand the argument for SA.

I'm somewhere in the 20% in progress and I'm finding the game to be very monotnous. I'll probably just trade it in soon and pick up Bad Company. I don't know if it's the settings or what but the aiming and movement of the character just feels clunky..like Niko is heavier then he seems..it's hard to explain. Is there also any point in going to do darts with Jacob or go take that Roman to the strip club? It seems like it's there for fluff (done it a few times) was hoping it would maybe open up some missions or something.

I have to agree with that, in fact that is my major gripe with the game. GTA:VC and GTA:SA had superb radio stations packed with tons of great songs. I find my self listening to Jazz more than anything on IV and that's bad especially since I figured Liberty Rock Radio would be stellar.
