Been a long time since I played a GTA game (were talking the London add-on for the original here) mainly because I quickly bored of the mindless driving around and I didn't think the transition to 3D would have made it any more interesting.
GTA has been 3D for a few games now, but for some reason, maybe because of the lack of any good PS3 fare, I was intrigued by the look of GTA:IV and took the plunge.
It's beautifully executed, very immersive and I am absolutely hooked. The characters are fleshed out quite nicely, the visuals are great. The city itself is huge, and there is nothing better than stealing a fast car and pelting around the streets at full speed.
