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

"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 »

So good.
30 April 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ach, what can I say? Immense, completely immense. Didn't think Niko was going to be such a likable character at first, but he's brilliant (not as good as CJ, though :P). Brucie's got to be the best character ever in the series.

The missions are great, the taxi service is brilliant, finally the tedium of driving cross-city is over, and there's nothing better than running into a guy, making him retaliate and having HIM arrested. Brilliant!

The funniest thing about GTA:SA was fat CJ, so it's a shame you can't get fat Niko. But hey, when you can play online against 7 friends, all in helicopters, fighting police copters, you tend to forgive the little things. :D
