Summary: I gave it three stars because of the hassle I had to go through in order for it to work. I purchased the code, and downloaded the game. During the installation process it kept saying catastrophic error or it couldn't recognize something. I just deleted the game ,and used Amazon's game installer. It started working, but the game was really....really slow. I heard game booster speeds it up, so i downloaded that and it did the job.
Summary: Came with some Bug that you can't uninstall, doesn't run, crashes, the download complained of one file missing (not sure if that's anything to do with the problems) will try to download it again as soon as I have 48 hours to do so. Expected a much better experience from GTA. Unable to critique the game as it crashes almost immediately. Had to Uninstall the whole thing due to the "Creature" (Bug) that came with it and installed itself in startup.
Summary: We now have a section devoted entirely to The Ballad of Gay Tony, the final episodic expansion for Grand Theft Auto IV. Here you can find everything you need to know about the episode, including achievements, cheat codes, plot details and official media
Summary: I wouldn't recommend buying this unless you have a good gaming PC or laptop.I got it and I can't play it because both my pc and laptop are too slow.So don't buy it unless you have a fast gaming computer.I would recommend getting a different game if you have a slow computer. Although if you do have a fast computer GTA 4 is a great game for adults.
Graphics are amazing, however, graphics doesn't make the game perfect.

Summary: Just to let you guys know this game must have 64bit computer to work. Sadly, I haven't been able to play this because my computer is only 32bit. Still, I have played this game on a friend's pc and it's actually a blast. Graphics are pretty good but I do see alot of bugs, which makes me think this game was rushed like the other ones. The only flaw is that it takes a LONG time to install and SO so many updates, installations.
Poor optimization leads to a very frustrating, ugly experience

Summary: So let's get this out of the way: GTA IV is a fantastic game! It's well-rounded, thoroughly carnage-inducing while retaining an interesting level of realism and grit, a couple of characters that you can identify with (though, for the most part, a series of lunatics and sycophants that you'll hopefully have nothing in common with), well written dialogue with plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor, an excellent control system, beautiful graphics (even four years after the fact!
Summary: I have a GTX 670 with 2gb VRAM, 8gb ram, intel 500 solid state drive, i7-2600 and all the latest drivers. Despite all this, GTA IV has significant draw distance, rendering, texture and other problems on the PC. The port of the title is surprisingly poor and I spent the equivalent of a term paper's of time trying to get the title to work in writing support, reading forums and trying every workaround imaginable.
