Summary: I should have listened to the reviewers. I am running a pretty good system: i5-2500k overclocked to 4.5 ghz CrossfireX HD 6950's, shader unlocked, and overclocked to 930/1375. I have the settings on the best possible, with the viewing distance down to 10, and while the game is beautful, any time I move the camera, I get insane choppiness and my FPS drops to the teens. Don't buy this game.
Summary: I love GTA IV on the Xbox- so I thought it would be fun to play on the PC. It took the 13GB several hours to download; so much for my impulse purchase !-) Then I went to install it and was informed that installation of the game requires the installation of Sony DADC SecuROM- which is a notorious virus/DRM system that will be very hard to remove from the system. I found removal instructions that went on for 5 pages!

Pros: It is fun to play but not earth shattering
Cons: One word, SecuROM. I would never recommend buying a game where an insidious DRM program that can damage your computers performance, is put on without your knowledge and can not be easily removed even when you remove the game.
Summary: Great game, much better graphically than the console versions plus you don't
have to use those horrible controllers! mouse and keyboard is where its at!!
My only complaint is that it was a real mission to get working at first, but
Rockstar have ironed those bugs out now.
Love the new movie making tool and online is heaps of fun too.
Summary: I was so looking forward to this game, but having now spent hundreds of
dollars on a new graphics card, and literally hours working through the install,
registration, windows live signup, social club skipping, then finally starting
the game, it's as stable as an east european county, and crashed 5 minutes
into the game. Did rockstar fire all their play testers after GTA3 ?
Summary: I have to agree will all the negative feedback. I would definitely advise
everyone thinking of purchasing this game to browse the reviews, and then think
very carefully before stumping up a hundred bucks for this game. Firstly, I feel absolutely insulted that I am not allowed to determine the
graphical settings for a game that I paid for. To have a game insist that
I play it on lower specs than I know can run it on is totally infuriating.
Conclusion: As the subject says. The game itself is great fun and has lots of content and things to do. Top marks for that. However, it's let down severely by the design of the PC port and the restrictions and requirements placed on it.
Summary: Jag köpte det här spelet för några månader sedan, jag hade systemkraven som krävdes för detta spel men det \"laggade\" lite ändå... Så jag råder er att se över er dators prestanda, och ni ska ha över de rekommenderade systemkraven för att spelet ska fungera som det borde! För mitt GTA 4 ligger bara i bokhyllan och samlar på sig damm...
Summary: Hatar Steam och internetkopplingen. Spelet i sig är tungt och segt. Iofs riktigt snyggt och med bra ljud - men på tok för tungrott. Dessutom börjar det bli lite \"same same\" över GTA. Tröttnade på storyn efter bara 10\%.
Summary: Det tråkiga är att man inte kan spela om man inte har internät Själv får jag upp en skärm som det står fatalt error och sen slocknar datorn och startas om mycket dåligt Jag hinner bara till det först safehouse sen är det slut
