5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back GTA!, 3 May 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto IV (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I have only had GTA IV for a day and I must say so far I think it great!

The graphics are good quality, from shadows to human faces. Stealing cars is alot more realistic, as now it is possible to break ito cars even if locked, and some old cars dont start first time.

As usual there are plenty of things to do whilst roaming including going to strip clubs, going drinking, having tours of Liberty City by taxi and helicopters, going bowling, and much more (I havn't played enough to discover all attractions and such. You can go on dates with your girlfriend, or call one of your friends for a night out or even to arrange a mission.

The first few missions, as with previous Grand Theft Auto games and quite basic and designed to get you used to the controls of weaponary and cars. These missions remain fun as they get harder and more intense.

Alot of people are criticising the handling of vehicles. I agree with the fact they are trickier to handle than cars in previous editions of GTA, however once you get used the controls you will value how realistic the driving feels.

A few other minor improvements from the previous GTA editions, are things like being hit by cars and flying through the windscreen when hitting an object at high speed, also there is a huge variety of pedestrians on the streets and you rarely see the same person twice!. Just small things give a more realistic feel to the game.

Overall, this is a great game which in my opinion has lived up to the hype. I havnt tried the multiplayer mode yet, which I know is a huge part of GTA IV, however from what I have seen, heard and played, Grand Theft Auto IV is a must have!
