Grand Theft Auto IV is probably one of my favorites from the GTA Franchise, besides Vice City and San Andreas.
I was stunned the first time I played it back in April of 2008 for the Xbox 360. Being the first next gen GTA to release
with its beautiful visuals and awesome physics engine.
But, how does it hold up now 6 years later? Very well, espeacilly on PC.
With the PC Version, you have access to mods and oh boy, you are in for a treat with mods.
I'm not going to get into mods, cause that's not what this review is going to be about.
Grand Theft Auto IV is a outstanding game on it's own. I have completed it around 3-4 times now, and still have fun with it every time that I play it. I would also recommend getting the Episodes of Liberty City DLC if you plan on picking up this title.
Story(This subject will lack due to the game description giving you most of what the story/game is about and that I don't want to spoil anything):
The story is abo♥♥♥♥ely amazing and pretty depressing at the same time. It has had me laughing, yet cry on some moments. You develope a bound amongst most characters, good or bad and the story hardly ever has a dull moment.
Gameplay is pretty solid and stays pretty much the same with most of the GTA series.
However, it'll feel weird at first with the new engine that Grand Theft Auto IV uses. From driving, running and combat feels different, but in a good way.
Controls feel nice with the keyboard and mouse and you have the option to use a controller, but I had issues getting my Steel Series gamepad to work properly and ended up just using keyboard/mouse.
Missions are fun for a while. I soon figured out that there is a pattern to how the missions play out.
Drive to a destination, shoot 'badies', get back in the car and run from police. Or, drive around dropping off/picking up said items.
Some of the missions become quite competitive and frustrating to some points where I had to take a break from the game a few times, but with the story, I couldn't completely stop playing the game.
But that's how most Rock Star games tend to play out.
With Grand Theft Auto IV, they added a 'buddy system'. With the other characters that you meet through out the game, you can call them from your contacts on you phone and you can invite them out to dinner, drink at the bar, a game of darts or pool and bowling. Also, you can take girls that you meet on dates from either missions or Eyefind to all said places previously said.
Minor downside to this, is that it can be quite annoying at times. Example, Roman can call you wanting to go out to eat, or bowling. If you like to role play, then this might not bother you too much and you have the option to turn off your phone.

Rating from 1-5: 4.8/5
I find this game to be good, I know some others didn't really care for the story and saw it as a dumb down version since they took out a lot of content that Grand Theft Auto San Andreas had. Which to some degree I agree, but I found the story to be out standing. Same with gameplay. I did miss the customization of vehicles, but on PC, I have mods for that.
Honestly, if you are a Grand Theft Auto fan, like myself, then I'm sure you've already played this game and made your verdict, but if not. Don't miss out on this one, it's not bad. There are better Grand Theft Auto games, but this one just gave me something different that I can't really explain.
All in all, this is a must buy. If you can, pick up the bundle that includes Grand Theft Auto IV, Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and Damned. I don't think you'll regret it!
