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

Similar to the radio advert in Grand Theft Auto 3 (2001) for 'PetsOvernight.com', there is an advert for 'BabiesOvernight.com', some of the wording in this advert strongly resembles the Pets Overnight advert, including the quote 'Delivered, in a box, directly to your door'. See more »

Goofs

In one of the boating activities you go on with Brucie, he tells you to go to the "Statue of Freedom" and the subtitles read "Statue of Happiness", which is what it is actually called in the game. See more »

This is unlike anything you can believe
6 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Perfection, or the closest thing possible is achieved with GTA IV. This may sound weird but it's hard to not think that this is a real breathing city. If one word could sum up the game I think it would be 'detail'. Every aspect of the game is as detailed as possible and it is easily the best game ever made respective of the technological possibility. For instance, the AI of the people walking down the street is almost creepy, it seems like these are living people. The dialogue is truly impressive, I believe that this game could compete with some of the best films around. Some people say that the cut-scenes have errors and other minuscule details are slightly askew, but truthfully if they are looking that close for errors they are missing the grand picture. Fantastic acting, worthy of film awards, breathtaking graphics, beyond realistic physics, and just enthralling game-play make this the first truly next-gen game that goes beyond just better graphics, pushing the limits of what I thought was possible. It's one hell of a deal for only $60, it's easily worth hundreds. Rockstar is genius for a making a game so immersive, so realistic, but yet manages to keep that funny, satiric GTA feel. Congrats Rockstar, you deserve your success.

P.S. screw off anyone that believes that video games cause people to do crimes. That's just being lazy.
