Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto IV concerns the experiences of Nikolai "Niko" Bellic, a new immigrant from an undisclosed eastern European country whose troubled past and the persuasion of his cousin Roman have brought him to the fictional Liberty City. Unfortunately, Niko's search for the American Dream and a much needed fresh start, hits an immediate snag when the rags to riches story Roman spun to pique Niko's interest is exposed as not only a complete fabrication, but a ploy to enlist Niko's well-known skills as a tough guy against the ample list of enemies clamoring for Roman's debt-ridden blood. Yet, because Roman is the only person Niko knows in Liberty City he begrudgingly accepts his role as Roman's protector despite the deception. But as time goes on Niko comes into his own and his experience on the wrong side of the tracks proves more valuable than he could have ever imagined as he fights for survival and later supremacy on the crime ridden streets of Liberty City.

Historically GTA games have focused heavily on mission-based play, requiring successful completion of fixed tasks in order for players to progress through the game, but this has changed to a great extent in GTA IV. Players will experience an entirely new and exciting emphasis centered on the blending of on-mission and off-mission play, resulting not only in an increased sense of realism, but more interesting and unrestricted gameplay.

Game Environments

Based on several of the boroughs of New York City and parts of New Jersey, Liberty City, familiar to players of previous games in the series, has been entirely redesigned for GTA IV. Players can expect visible detail down to the weeds growing in the cracks in the sidewalk, cars and buildings of visibly different ages and a much greater level if verticality in the buildings and bridges that they are able to explore as Niko moves through the city streets. In addition, pedestrians in GTA IV are much more realistic. No longer simply moving cardboard cutouts, these NPCs are intelligent, modern, human representations that laugh, cry, eat, drink, use cell phones and ATMs, and talking amongst themselves regardless of Niko's interaction with them.

Multiplayer

View larger.

Give Niko a rest and create your own multiplayer "hero." GTA IV has added multiplayer modes allowing you to take your creation out to play online in competitive, co-op, and free form modes. Competitive mode has you fighting against the cops, jacking cars, or racing to finish odd jobs. Co-op challenges you and your friends with various tasks including Hangman's Noose where you are responsible for escorting a wanted kingpin to a safe extraction point. Freeform lets you and 15 others lose on Liberty City. Use this mode to hit up the bar and play virtual darts versus each other or head out to the streets and set up your own drag races. If you can dream it, you can do it in Freeform mode.

Key Game Features
  • Improved Combat System - Now you can use cover and also a target lock system, which allows you to take out targets with greater ease and accuracy. Plus, you can engage in some hand-to-hand combat if you can't get your hands on a piece quick enough.
  • Cell Phone - Not just for basic phone calls anymore, use your in-game cell phone to receive missions via SMS, snap photos, and Zit (tag) songs that can be downloaded exclusively on Amazon.com/mp3.
  • Free Time - In between missions you can take advantage of "me" time. There are gentleman's clubs, comedy clubs, bowling alleys, and bars, which all house unique activities.
  • Take a break From the Story - A variety of side missions allow you to help run a car service, "borrow" cop cars, assassinate targets, help solve problems for those on the street, or take to the air with stunt jumps that are scattered all over the city.
  • Control Your Own Fate - Throughout the game choice moments will arrive causing you to make a decision that will affect relationships and money.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Complete Package December 19, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a convenient way to have 3 great games on one blu-ray disc. I traded in both the GTA IV disc and the Episodes disc and got enough money to buy this disc on a Lightning deal.

When the disc loads up, you are presented with a choice of which game you want to play.

This product *IS* compatible with any game saves you may have if you've played either of the other stand-alone discs.

If you are playing GTA IV, and want to play TBOGT, you need to exit the game and restart it and choose TBOGT. There is no way to "fast switch" between the 3 games.

Summary: If you have yet to purchase GTA IV and the Episodes, this product is all you need and the price is right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rockstar's Rashomon November 1, 2010
By korova
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars GTA IV Complete Version October 28, 2010
By Jaquio
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Nice to see that some game developers listen to the gamers every now and then when it comes to the GOTY or complete version's of the game. Unlike other GOTY version's sets you get all 3 games on 1 disk. (2 disk's if your playing the Xbox 360 Verison) Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned, The Ballard of Gay Tony no download vouchers at all for around $40 a great deal unless you already own the three games since it is at least 2 year's old but if you rather have all 3 games on 1 disk then your hard drive or if you never tried them before this is a great way to have all 3 in one complete package.

4.0 out of 5 stars WELL worth the money! A few things I did note. March 15, 2011
By Jon
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I finally got a PS3 a few months ago and knew from the hype this was a game to get - no disappointments here. And with the other two games included in the pack (you load the game and the first menu you get to is which game you want to play) it's well worth the money.

The game is obviously good enough (just look at the reviews - like GTA: SA, it's an open world where you can drive around and do what you want) that I figure I'll put down a few minor things that were of note for me personally (may be different for others).

I did set my controls (as is an easy option to do) to the "classic" setting, where 'X' is accelerate, square is break, circle is e-brake, etc., since I found immediately I just could not get down using the top R and L buttons to drive.

For me, the camera view gets frankly really irritating at times when you're driving - it doesn't quickly center itself, and you have to double-tap I think select or some other button to get it to do so. So when you're, say, in the middle of a mission and a guy you're chasing hangs a hard right, sometimes it's hard to have the proper depth perception to be able to follow him properly until you're able to get around the corner. You may end up hitting a parked car, for instance.

I did miss the "car customization" shops GTA: SA had. Also there are three different clothing shops total, and the area comparable to Manhattan and Times Square pretty much just looked nice but there wasn't much you could do other than drive around it. I mean San Andreas had little hidden spots where you could play basketball, more obvious spots where you could gamble in casinos, and was massive enough you had to fly to get places faster, for better or worse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great game April 8, 2011
By mel
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition comes with the 2008 release Grand Theft Auto IV, as well as the originally download content from 2009 The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.
For under $40, you cannot go wrong with this purchase. With three games in one, you will get a lot of playime that makes it worth every buck spent on it.
If you have both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, I recommend getting the PS3 version simply because all three games come in one disc, unlike the X360 version which comes with two discs; One for GTA IV and the other for TLaD and BoGT. It is not a deal breaker if you only own an X360 however. So either way, this game is simply worth the purchase!

Now as for the fun factor, compared to all other previous Grand Theft Auto releases, I found GTA IV and TLaD to be rather lacking. Don't get it wrong, all of these games are very polished and worth playing, but compared to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and San Andreas, they are simply not as fun. The graphics are much better here, but there is also less stuff to do and it gives you less incentive to keep playing after you beat the main storyline. However, Ballad of Gay Tony was a step forward from the other two GTA IV iterations, as I found every mission to be very fun in this one. But again, once you finish the main storyline, there is not much to do.

Overall, despise these three games not being as good as VC or SA (in my opinion!), I recommend all of you GTA fans to get this release. They are all still very fun and for the price, you can't refuse!
