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

If the player goes to a certain level of the Statue of Happiness, there will be a non-solid door with a plaque next to it reading "No Hidden Content this way". If the player goes through the door, there is a ladder leading up to a gigantic beating heart with chains attached to it. It can be shot and blood will shoot out of it. See more »

The closest thing to live in a parallel world.
24 July 2009 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

Oh, finally a real gaming experience that allows you to be a mafia member. The setting, music, situations, and even graphics really make you a part of the whole experience.

You get to explore the sandbox world of the game while getting into dangerous missions that include mobsters, criminal missions, and you even have time for your personal life.

This is a great experience that demonstrates that new millennium systems capacity to recreate a parallel universe that will transport you in a parallel life to say something...

Maybe I'm over praising this video game but believe me, until you play it, you will understand the whole experience...
