"GTA isn't in thrall to the movies any more, it's creating its own culture.
Utterly brilliant multiplayer aside, this is still very much the core formula that people fell in love with back on GTA III, but draw a line from then to now, from nameless, silent antihero to the amoral but conflicted Niko and the achievement is clear.
GTA IV is richer, deeper and more involving than its predecessors.
By the time the story threads start to tie up, the mission trees finally shaken out, you're totally invested in the characters and their world."
"Grand Theft Auto III was a revolutionary title, one that inspired a whole new generation of 3D action games.
Grand Theft Auto IV is just as big a leap forward, though perhaps in subtler ways, and sets a new benchmark for open-world games.
Everything in GTA IV works in harmony.
The story would be nothing without the city; the city gains realism from the physics engine; the physics compliment the improved AI; the AI would make no sense without the new cover system.
And on and on.
There is no one major weak aspect."
