Storyline

Niko Bellic, a European immigrant, arrives at Liberty City at the invitation of his cousin Roman, who advertised a fictitious lifestyle in America that included a mansion, exotic sport cars and beautiful promiscuous women. Upon his arrival Niko finds out that everything Roman told him via the Internet was a mere lie. In reality, his cousin runs a slummy taxi depot, thrives in a small one bedroom apartment and is constantly hindered by the presences of greedy debt collectors; and in this case scenario, Niko is Roman's guardian angel. Niko mercilessly hoards away the loan-sharks while the evils of Liberty City begin to surround both of the Bellics, and ugly figures from Niko's past begin to catch up with him. In a city where there is no such thing as peace and sincerity is rare and indistinguishable, Niko Bellic truly ponders the deeper meaning of the American Dream. Written by commanderblue

Trivia

Chinese signboards are seen throughout the islands. Many of them are Homophones associated with slangs and dirty jokes in Hong Kong culture. For examples, "Bill Sze Accounting" can be read as "Poop-your-pants Accounting" in Cantonese. While "167" in Cantonese is known as "A piece of dick," a dirty way to say "dumb." "Mr. Mo Driving" can be translated ironically as "Manless-driving" or "Autopilot." There are also sarcastic jokes about the names, such as "Loan-shark-king Financial Loans," "Alopecia Hair Salon" and "Super Real Jewewllery," et cetera. See more »

Goofs

In the mission "Flatline", a character is on a life support machine, as is stated when you attempt to turn it off. However, the character is well able to speak, something which would be highly unlikely if his condition necessitated the machine. See more »

the best game ever
29 April 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

i just bought this game today, and its awesome! the script is very well written and the voice acting is great. the gameplay is very nice and the targeting from previous GTA's has improved.

The game features a great cover system similar to that from Uncharted and Gears of War.

The graphics are very realistic and detailed sometimes it looks just like real life.

The online mode is really fun. you're with 16 guys in Liberty City and you can kill, each other, help each other and do missions together

I recommend this game to all PS3 and X360 owners this is really the best game for those consoles until the moment
