  • Excerpt: Grand Theft Auto, no longer just the american wording for stealing cars. GTA has become one of the most successful gaming series in history despite all the negative press that is guaranteed to come with every new launch. So why all the hype? What makes this new edition to the GTA universe one of the most in depth and immersive games currently available? Attention to detail? Knowing what mature gamers want? Tons of hidden extras? Well told storyline?

  • Excerpt: As our alter ego Niko Bellic sails across the Atlantic towards the unknown promised land of America, you can’t help but draw parallels with Rockstar’s own journey. Having conquered the last generation of consoles, they now face an uncertain transition to the Xbox 360 and PS3, where the pressure to exceed the already high standards is enormous. With such a burden, this is perhaps the most important game in the series since Grand Theft Auto III .

Grand Theft Auto IV Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
30 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Those expecting a radical overhaul will likely be let down by the latest game in the money making Grand Theft Auto series. Things have been changed for the better and others for the worse, although the misleadingly titled fourth game in the series is still the equivalent of a very familiar face in a massive crowd. This time you take control of an Eastern European immigrant who sets his foot on American soil at the start of the game.

  • Conclusion: The animation was well thought out and developed. Occasionally a close-up scene was weak enough that you could see the rendering in the animation, but those didn’t occur too often. The musical scores are used to good dramatic effect, alternating at times between ominous and intense classical tracks to edgy modern riffs, and definitely provide additional foreshadowing.
  • Pros: Sudden plot twists will keep you coming back for more.
  • Cons: None worth mentioning.

Grand Theft Auto IV Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Going back to the phone for a minute, this is your seamless entry into the multiplayer modes of the game. GTA IV features fifteen modes that you’ve probably already heard about, including standard Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch types, as well as racing and the more GTA-centric Cops ’n Crooks mode.
