5.0 out of 5 stars Rockstar's Rashomon August 28, 2012
By korova
Long time fans of Grand Theft Auto know that each of the games in the post-PS1 era is thematically linked to a particular genre of movie. GTA III is heavily indebted to Mafia movies such as Goodfellas and The Godfather, as well as to the cable television series The Sopranos. Vice City is clearly influenced by Miami Vice and Scarface, while San Andreas draws a great deal of inspiration from Colors and Boyz N the Hood.

GTA IV-The Complete Edition carries on this tradition by transforming Grand Theft Auto IV into an homage to Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon. As in Kurosawa's film, a set of events is seen from multiple points of view, leaving the player to decide which perspective he or she believes is the most credible. Niko Bellic, Johnny Klebitz, and Luis Lopez, the main characters, each bring a different experience and interpretation to GTA IV's story line. Niko is an immigrant, forced to assimilate and adapt rapidly to a world completely new to him. Johnny is caught in a classic master versus apprentice situation. Luis, who is the only character with any kind of insider status, must choose between building his future and honoring his past.

These are all familiar character situations in videogames, of course, but Rockstar creates deeper and richer stories and characters than most other game developers. The majority of games stick to the bare rudiments of character motivation and development. Rockstar has given us THREE strong stories in the GTA IV series, each with a complex and compelling main character. It was ambitious of Rockstar to release Niko's view of the story first, in isolation, without any indication of what was to come later. Many of the events in the Niko version of the story, in fact, aren't fully explained until the Luis and Johnny episodes.

3.0 out of 5 stars eh, wait for GTA 5 PC edition September 16, 2014
By KioNife
Verified Purchase
The Code for this is on steam. I have this game on both my PS3 and PC, but I don't really like the controls for it on PC so I hooked up my PS3 controller. The game format is a bit glitchy on the PC too, because it is ported really poorly. If you're thinking about getting this game now I would just wait until GTA 5 comes out for the PC, it should be coming out pretty soon so I hear. Over all not really something I would get for the PC.

When I purchased this code it was at a deep discount but still wanted to return it for refund.
The game is unplayable on many PCs - read some of these reviews. I spent about two hours googling for fixes before I realized I didn't care enough about what the game may contain to actually go to that much effort.
Mine is definitely a modest to outright old PC but this is running like leftover garbage. It's not that it's JUST ugly, either - it's jerky and slow and only by dropping settings to absolute minimum (you will be SHOCKED how ugly this game can be) is it smooth at all. Even that is temperamental.

If you're willing to dig around config files and dredge forums for fixes to terrible PC ports of Console games (That is, made for Console and then shoddily refit to run on a computer) AND this is on another deep, deep discount it might be worth it.
If you've been waiting for the last installment of GTA to reach affordable prices so you can finally check it out without any hassle then don't bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing game, bad port June 23, 2014
Verified Purchase
Few things that I feel need to get out of the way.
-Yes, you can play this on any Windows 7 or 8 if you have any idea about computer or can use google.
-Yes, most low end gaming computers can play this. If your computer is gaming in any sense and you have a decent processor and 256mb graphics card, you can play it on the lowest settings.
-Yes, the game is a bad port. If your computer isn't an absolute monster then you can't play it on it's highest settings.

Other than that, this game is amazing and a must have if you enjoy shooting and exploding and car crashes. I would recommend it. If nothing else, go watch DanzNewz play it on youtube. That should answer any questions of if you want it or not. I've had a lot of fun on my own and playing with my friends.
