Grand Theft Auto IV

Post by Guest on Thu May 29, 2008 7:43 pm

PLATFORM: XBOX 360










PERFECTION
now know how film critics felt after screening The Godfather. Itís been days since Grand Theft Auto IVís credits rolled, yet I canít seem to construct a coherent thought without my mind wandering off into a daydream about the game. I just want to drop everything in my life so I can play it again. Experience it again. Live it again. No matter what I do, I canít stop thinking about the choices I made throughout the course of the game. Those people didnít have to die. I could have saved them. I wasnít thinking straight. My judgment was clouded. Next time, things will be different.
If you thought that the previous Grand Theft Auto titles offered an amazing level of freedom, you havenít seen anything yet. In Grand Theft Auto IV, you really feel like you have ownership over the entire experience. You build relationships, approach missions the way you want to, and even dictate the flow of the story. In true GTA style, you do the dictating with your gun. Some of the choices you make will have a dramatic ďI canít believe that just happenedĒ effect on Niko Bellicís life. This isnít like Fable or Mass Effect where you can clearly see how your input is affecting the story. You just have to live with it, swallow hard, and hope you made the right choices. Itís an amazing story that ends up having a soul and isnít afraid to poke fun at societyís hot topics.
As much as the game makes you sweat bullets through its choices, it no longer makes you dread firing them. The new targeting system is a remarkable contraption that, strangely enough, also offers choice. By applying a hard or soft click to the aim trigger, you can switch between free aim and lock-on, a combo that sings on the battlefield, and makes you feel like a skilled assassin. With intelligent foes putting a bead on you, the gunplay is a far more visceral affair, requiring pop-and-shoot tactics, ammo conservation, and some serious skill. Thankfully, with the gameplay firing direct hits, you no longer feel like a death was something you had no control over. The gunplay is extremely polished, and is one of the gameís strongest points.
Vehicular mayhem continues to play a huge role in the series, and is enhanced with an array of new jacking animations and realistic physics for both the vehicles and people you hit. The new Pac-Man-like police evasions, and scripted chase scenes are incredible additions as well.
When you arenít raising your wanted level with a pistol or a runaway car, the game offers mountains of incredible content where you would least expect it. GTA IV has a Sims quality to it, as it starts to feel like real life. You can sit back and watch hilarious fictional TV shows (even cartoons), go to a comedy show, lose hours of your life surfing fictional internet sites, and even play full games of bowling, darts, and pool. Of course, this is GTA so you can always spend your time at a strip club or a bar. I know this is going to sound lame, but one of my favorite parts of the game is people watching. There hasnít been a world of people in a game that has felt this alive. Youíll see cabbies throwing coffee cups out the window, people on cell phones not paying attention as they cross the street, and umbrellas going up when the rain starts.
Itís unbelievable how much there is to see and do. All of it is captured with stunning realism, and that trademark GTA satire. The single-player game alone is immense, and easily deserving of the perfect score, but thereís something else this breakthrough product does just as well; it blows the doors off of what you expect from a multiplayer game. Just think of the way you play single player (with cops always in pursuit) then multiply that by 16. Itís insanity Ė wonderful insanity Ė with rockets and helicopters soaring through the air, and players doing everything they can to win or thwart you. The game offers a slew of game modes, too, including my favorites GTA Race (think Cannonball Run with backstabbing death), and Cops Ďn Crooks. The multiplayer runs just as smoothly as the single-player game, and offers an insane level of customization.
On top of the standout experiences mentioned, there so much more to appreciate about this game. Its dynamic mission structuring, remarkable sound design, wealth of side content, amazing animation, the list goes on and on. Long story short, I never thought I would see this much content in a game.
Grand Theft Auto IV doesnít just raise the bar for the storied franchise; it completely changes the landscape of gaming. Once you play it, you wonít look at video games the same way again. -ANDREW REINER






MATT BERTZ 10
There are epic gaming experiences, and then there is Grand Theft Auto IV. The latest installment of Rockstarís flagship surpasses the benchmark set by San Andreas in every possible way. With the aid of an impressive graphics engine, improved gunplay mechanics, the phenomenal Natural Motion Euphoria animation technology, and a deep story that, unlike other GTAs, features a heart underneath its myriad double-crosses and stick-ups, GTA IV is the most action-packed open world ever created. Liberty Cityís great array of characters, radio stations, television channels, and websites offer searing satires of modern American life; youíd have a hard time finding a more comprehensive lambasting of our culture in any other media form. But the star of the show is Niko Bellic; the Eastern European anti-hero is my favorite criminal since Deadwoodís Al Swearengen. On top of the phenomenal story of Bellic, Rockstar also offers an addictive multiplayer that will have players jonesing for a free-for-all match well into the summer. Damn, it feels good to be a gangster.

CONCEPT:
This smartly penned crime story puts player freedom on a pedestal, and backs it up with outstanding gunplay and the next big multiplayer experience


GRAPHICS:
Youíll lose yourself in your surroundings ó the striking environment details, variety of people on the streets, the physics-based showering of bodies after a car explodes. On top of this, the framerate never skips a beat


SOUND:
The soundtrack is fantastic, but the true master stroke here is the voice work


PLAYABILITY:
Simply put, it plays the way you always wanted Grand Theft Auto to play


ENTERTAINMENT:
In terms of content, this may even be a better deal than The Orange Box. It just gives and gives and gives


REPLAY:
High

Those games are really good but if you like sandbox style games like gta VI that have good gameplay value and you want a change from shooters and sports games you should get Oblivion: game of the year edition. This game has all the updates and downloadable content on it already and has a massive amount of ameplay time. I think it has over 100 hours, and a very good combat system for a game of its type though.

Grand theft Auto 4 is truly the second best platform game out at the time. Following Halo 3, you can truly do anything you want. I got it the day it came out. I was skeptical on the multiplayer, but now it is all i do. The game is epic win. 9/10...for the fact no airplanes and weapons could be improved. The radio makes the game awesome, and the graphix you cant beat.

so what about them dont you like? Things have changes ALOT since the first games. I will agree GTA San Andreas was horrible game, but there is a big jump between 4 and SA
