Trivia

The character Niko Bellic is based on Vladimir Mashkov's character from Behind Enemy Lines (2001). Mashkov was offered the role (voice), but turned it down because he didn't take it seriously at the time, as he explains in the talk-show interview Pozner: Vladimir Mashkov (2010). See more »

Goofs

In the mission 'Hating the Haters' Bernie says he has been getting attacked at the park and needs the help of a good fighter like Niko, but if you get into a fight with someone before you reach the park during the mission, Bernie will also start to fight the pedestrian and he fights just as well as Niko. While fighting, he will also speak with a different style of voice. See more »

So good it makes San Andreas look like GTA 2.
29 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

Seriously: BUY. THIS. GAME!! I've been running around all over the city trying to buy it today but they were all sold out everywhere. I finally find a copy at a kiosk where I usually buy movies. I think I bought their last copy, haha.

Anyway, so I get home and install it (it takes only a couple of minutes to install on PS3) and I start to play and the first thing that strikes me is the unbelievable freedom of movement in this game. I start driving around and speed up and hitting the brakes and running over people and so on and it's the most intense experience I have ever had playing a GTA game.

And just you wait till you get out on the street, there's no walking through other people on the street in this game, no, in this game you actually run into people, knock them over, and make the very angry with you. Hehe, I got a lot of people running after me my first time on the street. I know how that sounds, that sounds like bad AI right? Wrong! It actually felt extremely real being chased.

So go out and get this game, but the people who live in my town has to wait a week cos I bought the last copy in the entire city.

Peace out!
