Excerpt: I am completely dumbfounded. For once in my life, I can’t find a single good thing about a game, and I’ve played some horrible games. I’ve always been able to find some good in them, whether it was a good concept, or the sheer absurdness. But the only way I managed to sit through this title was because halfway through I discovered some rather bizarre cheats.
Excerpt: In the ongoing discussions of what the United States should do with the Mexican border, I can’t help but notice that a vast number of people actually believe that walls cannot keep unwanted people out in any circumstance. While the closest thing to a castle which I’ve personally seen would probably be some military fortification or maybe a prison, those walls seem to be more than effective.

Conclusion: Grand Theft Auto IV kan beschouwd worden als een heuse upgrade voor de serie; een meer volwassen versie, zeg maar. Hoewel we enkele kenmerkende elementen van vorige versies zien verdwijnen, is Rockstar erin geslaagd om een stevig verhaal te brengen, doorspekt met een pak humor en karikaturen en een handvol nieuwe en verbeterde mogelijkheden die ons zelfs doen vergeten wat we missen. Bravo!
