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

The character of Brian Meech, one on the random characters that Niko can meet on the street, tells Niko on their third meeting that he resorted to performing oral sex on people to support his heroin habit. This is close to the same story as Rick Shapiro, who features on the PLR radio station within the game. See more »

Quotes

Patrick 'Packie' McReary: Fuck, fuck, fuck. All that trouble for nothing. Kidnapping the bitch, holding onto her, fighting through them damn Russians... all of that for jack shit.
Niko Bellic: Look on the bright side, at least you got to meet Gracie.
Patrick 'Packie' McReary: Screw that. I got close to knocking her teeth out. That was about it. We ain't got shit now. Maybe we was going to have to give up them diamonds to fucking Ray Boccino but we woulda got a payday. Now we ain't getting shit.
Niko Bellic: Yeah, but there is no guarantee we woulda made any money out of ...

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
