There seems to be a lot of reviews for GTA4 which seem to concentrate on the reviewers PC's poor performances. So I guess the first thing to say is before you buy read the recommended system requirements to run the game and if your PC doesn't meet them go and buy a faster PC, don't right a review which bitches about short comings of the game which are actually short comings of of your PC. Also don't complain about having to install Windows Live. If you don't want to install windows live don't buy the game, says in big letters on the front of the game 'gaming for windows live' to me that's a small clue that it might need to be installed.
Right the game.... I've played all the other GTA games going right back to the original. This is by far the best. The first 3D GTA promoted me to buy a PS2 and I was almost ready to buy a Xbox360 or PS3 to play GTA4 on but then it was released for windows no need to buy another console :) The game is Great a perfect follow on to San Andreas. The graphics are superb and the interaction between NPC and you as a player is great (it seems that when you bump into someone on the street they all have something different to say to you). the story line is well written and the missions are really good. the only thing I haven't tried yet is multiplayer as I don't thing I'm good enough to try that yet but I'm sure that will be a great experience too.
So on the whole this is a really excellent game and I'd recommend any GTA fan to go and buy it.
