Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto IV, also known as GTA 4, is a sandbox-style video game developed by Scotland’s Rockstar North Ltd. This action-adventure video game was published by Rockstar Games and it was released for both the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360 on April 29, 2008.

Setting

The game is set in a fictional city called Liberty City whose landscape and style is based heavily on New York City.

Gameplay

Players of Grand Theft Auto IV takes on the role of an Eastern European war veteran named Niko Bellic. Bellic moved to Liberty City in hope of achieving the American Dream. However, he quickly becomes involved in Liberty City’s world of crime, corruption, and gangs. There, players must pursue a number of missions in order to progress in the game.

In this primarily third-person shooter and driving game, players can move around on foot by walking, running, climbing, and jumping. The characters are also capable of swimming. Players can also make use of weapons as well as engage in hand-to-hand combat. Apart from these, players can drive a number of vehicles including automobiles, motorcycles, boats, and helicopters. The same set of vehicles can be stolen by the players.

Online Multiplayer

Although it does not feature split screen or LAN multiplayer modes, Grand Theft Auto IV offers 15 online multiplayer modes that support up to 16 players. Among the available modes are Team Deathmatch, Team Mafiya Work, Team Car Jack City, Cops n’ Crooks, and Turf War. Other modes include Race, GTA Race, Hangman's N.O.O.S.E., Deal Breaker, and Bomb da Base II. The game also features a Free Mode where players are free to explore the city without having to complete a mission.

Review Summary

Before its release the game Grand Theft Auto IV (GTA IV) has already been generating great reviews. According to a certain user who was disappointed by the fact the game is based in the Liberty City rather than in New York. Whether it is about the missions, the moment-to-moment action, the controls, the dynamic city, the technology, the graphics, or any of countless other aspects, all these are being talked about by reviewers as well as gamers who are excited about the game. Though some reviewers feel when it comes to combat, GTA IV has a lot in common to the game, Gears of War. Gamers as well as reviewers are happy to notice that GTA IV has all the expected inside features that they would want. Like the smooth and accurate control for targeting, intuitive cover mechanics and non-restrictive agility. Thanks to the way the targeting mechanics have been created, players who have never play any game in the GTA series, would be able to start out with this one easily and at the same time having lots of fun playing it. A certain reviewer quoted that the trigger-based lock-on system looks very intuitive, enabling the player to quickly move from target to target, as well as making minor movements while focusing on one target. This game has a brand new level and it is for multiple systems.
