Grand Theft Auto IV is the latest installment of the popular series by Rockstar for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. All big media outleds like IGN have been cleared to release their video reviews of the early copies of the finished game they received. We, however, have to wait like you to buy the game in stores on April 29th, so expect VGB’s review once Stuart had his fun with the game.
The action-adventure game features improved graphics, new features, and new gameplay. Players take on the role of Niko Bellic, a rough-around-the-edge chap from Eastern Europe. Niko has arrived in America, in Liberty City — a land full of promise and opportunity. His cousin convinced him to emigrate, to join him in his mansion and life of luxury, but as soon as he steps off the boat, Niko discovers the truth about the American way. Still, the wealth, the comfort, the bliss of the good life, it all really is here… and it’s all for the taking.
Warning: Titles rated M (Mature) have content that may be suitable for persons ages 17 and older. Titles in this category may contain intense violence, blood and gore, sexual content and/or strong language.
As the second video review (by 1UP) will show, GTA IV reinvents the series with a renewed version of Liberty City detailed to the last pothole and rooftop vent. There are now four boroughs to explore plus extra area outside of Liberty City proper. With the ability to climb obstacles, drive cars, steer boats and pilot helicopters, the world of GTA is more accessible than ever before.
