Everyone else who wants to join in on the hate, post here. Online problems? Gripe here! Glitches in the game? B1tc& here! Hate terrorists and think Niko is one? Complain here! My PS3 is now a George Foreman-esque grill because this game crashed my PS3 and is now worthless. And it's only $300 more than the original Foreman grill. ALL THANKS TO GTA4!!! Thank you, Rockstar!
(In case you don't get sarcasm, just like you don't get how to make a quality next-gen GTA game, I AM BEING SARCASTIC WHEN I SAY THANKS FOR THE CRUMMY RIP-OFF THAT YOU AND YOUR FANBOY FOLLOWERS CLAIM IS THE SAVIOR OF OPEN-WORLD AND NEXT-GEN TITLES)! Start your complaints now, folks!
Hate Terrorist's? What do you think GTA games are??? haha in every GTA game to date your are a terrorist! Inless ofcourse in your small little mind you think that someone from eastern europe looks like middle eastern "terrorist". The terrorist's that attacked us on 9/11 were afgany, not serbian(which is in eastern europe). So i would like to know what a terrorist looks like, have you met one? Do they all look alike? And let me guess all black people look the same too? retard. And because you PS3 is crap doesn't mean its rockstar's fault, that is something you need to take up with sony man... no go back and play GTA4 and try to play the missions without cheat and get to at least 11% completion and tell me the game sucks, you people are just made cause the game has change and you wont give it the time to take on the learning curve, and adjust. Cause if you did you wouldn't leave ignorant post such as these, im sure...
This is hilarious. This guy absolutely hates GTA4 fo some reason. Read his PS3 review he just left as well. Funny stuff. But you still are a tool, Bo Peep. If you got a jacked up copy, go return it and get a new one. And I don't believe for a second that it "fryed" your PS3. I've been through 2 Xbox 360's since I've had my PS3. No problems with my black beauty at all. Quit being a douchebag and racist and open your eyes for what GTA4 is-an absolutly joy to play and a great all-around gaming experience. But if it did somehow screw up your PS3, I'll take a hot dog and cheeseburger to go, please! HA HA HA! Tool...
The new patch doesn't fix it either. It was good for the first 2 matches online and then it froze up on my next 2 matches while waiting for the loading screen. I actually maintained my rank of "1" star after my first 2 battles online, but I also saw that it didn't track any of my stats that I had accumulated from the games before. I should have a 3-2 record, yet I'm still at 1-1 with the same amount of money as before. They need to fix this immediately. I'm bought ready to blow up R* HQ!!! Freakin' idiots!!!
Well, actually, I've had one particular game break my 360; something about how the graphics on it were "too good"; so one game can break a console. But even still, if your PS3 broke, get a new one, or get it replaced, unless you're the type of idiot that takes it apart to see what went wrong
For starters, the terrorist weren't even afghani... they were from yemen and saudi arabia. We were attack for ing Afghanistan to go after Bin Laden, who wasn't even there. Pretty much everything after 9/11 was pretty much a lie, and I just wanted to clear that up you.
I hate GTA4. I'm still amazed that people love it so much they defend it like it's their child. I wanted to start posting how much I disliked it two days after I got it, but I waited for two weeks because so many people were claiming to love it I thought I was missing something. At first I disliked it and now I hate it. I guess I am missing something. Strange though, I just put GTA3 in my PS3 the other day and I was having fun playing it. GTA4 is hollow and the core game-play elements aren't enjoyable to me. It looks good but that's it. I really expected the average user reviews to be between 2 and 2.5 stars on Amazon by now. Seriously, all you guys that love it so much: what the hell are we missing?
I love this game, but I am really frustrated with it right now.
I cant make any money because you lose 10 grand everytime you die. so if I do police missions the only money i make is what the criminals have on them. so if I kill a group a drug dealers I make $20, then the cops get mad at me for doing them a favor, shoot me to death, and I lose $10,000. I would make more money If I just went and got a job at cluckin bell. and why, when their is a gorup of drug dealers firing AKs do all the cops turn and shoot at me?
Rockstar has made this game a little too real(eg. $10G medical bill when you die, cops get on you for EVERYTHING). part of the fun of GTA is that it is a little absurd and cartoonish. If I wanted something that was completely realistic I wouldnt play video games. And I am the only one who finds the cops really F'ing annoying in this game?
there, I just had to vent, but all that being said, this game is still amazing
Ha! Maybe if this guy learned some English, and how to type it correctly I MIGHT pay some attention to what he says. But then again, that assumes this guy knows what he's talking about, which I seriously doubt after re-reading his post a few times over just to understand what he's talking about. It's called grammar dude, maybe if you learn to write correctly then people MIGHT take what you say seriously.
GTA IV just plain wasn't fun. How anyone can say that it is better than Saint's Row is beyond me.
Here's why I don't like GTA IV, in terms of pluses and negatives of percentages:
First, I give the game an overall initial rating of 75%, or 7.5 for Gamespot people.
I was expecting more exploration - (-1%) Niko is an illegal - (-2%) The story is a slow crime drama - (-2%) The character, Niko's, movements are floaty and the aiming/combat system is very slow - (-6%) The presence of sex clubs and the requirement of partaking in sexual acts - (-7%) WKTT radio station is blatant hate speech against conservatives and doesn't tell you that these are the very things that liberal talk show hosts talk about (Google Bernie Ward and you'll see what I mean) - (-8%)
At 75% initial score, deduct 26% from everything I didn't like.
My final score for GTA IV is 4.9, or 49%.
Feel free to debate me, but now I am convinced that Saint's Row 2 is my free roaming game of the year.
You know, I've gone back to GTA4 again and again trying to find a reason to like it (which you shouldn't have to do in a game worth owning) and I just can't. I thought that maybe the police chases were enough to keep it but after provoking the police about 40 times in a row and getting 5 stars, I didn't escape once. There's just no fun in it. I played it enough to get good at the driving and shooting too but there is just little joy in those chases. My favorite things about San Andreas are terribly executed in GTA4. I'm selling my copy this week while it still has some value. I'm with you Adam, Saint's Row 2 it is.
1) Where, exactly, was your exploration limited in this game? The city is larger than that of every GTA game except San Andreas and larger than that of Saints Row.
2) What does this have to do with how fun the game is? In every GTA game, you play a nearly psychotic, drug running, cold-hearted murderer, and you have a problem with Niko being an illegal immigrant? It just doesn't make sense, dude, especially considering that Niko's illegal status has no functional impact on the gameplay *at all*. It's not even important to the story--all that matters is he's from somewhere else, really. The legality or illegality of the move to America is irrelevant.
3) Every GTA's story is a crime drama of some sorts. Indeed, Saint's Row is a crime story as well, so this point can't logically be a reason for Saint's Row being better given that it is shared by both games.
4) There are some problems with the combat system, but I don't see how "slow" describes them.
5) There are strip clubs (not "sex clubs") in every GTA game, but there is absolutely no requirement to partake in sex acts (although it is possible; nothing is shown at all). You clearly didn't play the game very much. If you're offended by the presence of strip clubs, then frankly I don't know how you weren't constantly putting a pillow over your head throughout the whole game. There's much worse here than a mere strip club. You think stealing a car and mowing down tons of people on the sidewalk and killing the chasing police officers is okay but a little strip club (with limited nudity anyway) crosses the line?
6) Every political statement I found in this game has been about the Bush administration, not about conservatism in general.
Furthermore, your final score is obviously extremely biased toward the negative points. I honestly do not believe that you found absolutely nothing positive in this game (you listed only negatives for adjusting the initial, generic score of 7.5).
Now listen, I understand that plenty of people don't like the game and don't find it fun, and obviously I have no problem with that. But since this is a site where what you say will influence people on purchasing the game, I felt obliged to post this as your points were factually inaccurate.
Unless you already got 100% in the game, your post doesn't make sense. Why would you get 5 stars 40 times over and over when there other actual activities to do in the game? There's a whole lot more than the story missions. And if you have gotten 100%, then you've obviously played this game a whole lot, and I think it's unfair to expect it to last any more than that.
"Why would you get 5 stars 40 times over and over when there other actual activities to do in the game?"
The "actual activities" aren't actually very fun. One of my favorite things about a GTA game are the police chases. GTA4 takes almost all of the fun out of them. I sold my copy last week and there are quite a few people with me when I say that I won't buy another GTA. I'm well aware they'll do just fine without us. I was amazed how bad GTA4 is and because of it, I won't buy another game without it establishing a review base first. Not that it would have made much difference with GTA4 with all the blindly glowing reviews. At $60 a pop, it's too big a chance to take for many of us.
