GTA IV - The realistic game that includes a huge beating heart in the statue of liberty,
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto IV (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Sorry people, but I was awaiting this as much as most game lovers and this was quite a kick in the balls after playing it for 10 hours, I suddenly realised, the following was missing:
Many, many weapons including, Smoke Bombs, Chainsaws, lock on Rocket Launchers's, katanas etc etc
The ability to ride trains
The RPG feeling (no more getting fat, working out etc)
The lack of clothes/changing apprenance
The 6 star rating being the Army
The ability of being able to purchase hardware, such as hammers etc
No more going into police stations
This is very very disappointing and in my opinion a huge step backwards.
Instead you are given
A mobile phone, its not really that good, you sort of get them on san andreas and vice city but on GTA 4 you get to ring people to go out and stuff, this is pretty cool, the only thing bad about this is once you have arranged to go out with someone you have about 2 minutes (a games hour) to get to them, and they can be at several places on the map so they usually end up hating you more for going out with them.
Car damage is amazing now.
The best bit is the multiplayer which is fun for a few hours, chill out and free roam with your mates, or go on online missions.
After completing the game, and it does take a long time you will be feeling depressed by either or the two endings of the storyline, lets just say you don't own the biggest mansion in the game.
Overall the game is worse than San Andreas, the graphics are better, but the game is smaller and has alot less to do, except multiplayer. Rockstars excuse of taking away the majority was that it was too unrealistic, and what, a beating heart in the statue of liberty (happiness) is not? Get out.

Planes ...still get helicopters...(planes flying dangerously low in New York would have been a bit sensitive-capische?)
Bicycles ...you wanna push bike?
Burlgary ...sure, but there is drug dealing instead
The ability to ride trains --err...you can ride tains.
The lack of clothes/changing apprenance --you can change your suit/tacksuit/trainers etc
No more going into police stations ---theres a shed load of walk-in locations
as for dates...get a cab!
sorry you were disappointed...

are you a rockstar man? if not, you shouldn't really be sorry. I'm sure it wasn't your fault.
You can't actually drive them though like san andreas, the whole plane thing I can sort of see where you are coming from...
Burglary* was a laugh, you can change your clothes and shizzle but it was limited like loads compared to SA.
Police stations were the best walk in locations in the past in my opinion, nothing was more fun about doing a terminator and minigunning my way through the police station (even though I have nothing against cops....)
and the dates thing I agree with you aswell kind of, but it would be cooler if you had a great car to be able to get to the date in that rather than abandon that cause of the impossible journey you would have to make in less than 2 minutes..
And hell yeah I wanna push bike. The cheat to bunny hop like 50 feet in the air was one of the coolest things in SA.
sorry you were offended ;)
