Excerpt: Aside from the formula for Coca-Cola, no pop culture secret has been more difficult to replicate than Grand Theft Auto's recipe for open-ended videogaming thuggery.

Pros: Some incredibly fun activities, Equals GTA on many fronts, Impressive realistic lighting
Cons: Commuting to missions gets dull, Multiplayer isn't open-world, No bikes, planes, etc.
