The main character of this game taught me to never forget a friend. He taught me, if your friend is dead, avenge him.

Grand Theft Auto is great. No doubt. But the port they made of this game to PC was nothing to be proud of. They require you to log into some sort of windows live account to play online, and the modding community had to make a fix just so players could boot up the game. I would link people to youtube video I found for the startup crashing fix... but the link is in my other computers internet history. I do recommend visiting gta4-mods.com if you intend on playing this after completing the main story line as modding this game gives it soo much more replay value.

Rockstar you make good games but for godsake... a billion dollar company... And you can't fix your game making indenpendant users do it for you. And then you wonder why you get complaints by those who don't know how to use google to find the fixes...

Hey You
Yeah You
This Game Can Be Heavily Modified
Story is incredibly dramatic and action packed
Side Missions Are Alot of Fun For Some Extra Cash
If you have a GFWL I Recommend Buying this :D

playtime is only 0.8h because of games for windows live...

Talking strictly single player, it always finds a new way to p.iss you off... The characters do not feel like in other gta games, they are this time rather uninteresting and lack humor.. I think the whole realism approach fails in gta4 and only makes it feel less like a GTA game.. I played liberty city, vice city and san andreas which all were great in my opinion but this one has nothing compared to them except for better graphics... You cannot even play taxi and enjoy music, you need mods for that...

Finally, I tried three times to finish this game but everytime something with this game managed to p.iss me that much off that I simply had to uninstall it... The first time, it was because the story was soo boring that I couldn't stand it anymore while it wasn't even possible to drive taxi... The second time, I made it further into the game but again stopped playing coz story was boring again only that this time I had so much money which I apparently couldn't even spent like buying a new home or car that I wasn't willing to continue... The third time, the game wasn't saving my keyboard controls, so I didn't even bother starting...

Besides all things said, games for windows live always gets in the way...

I played over 1000 hours in non-steam version

Epic crime drama set in fictional version of New York (Liberty City), tells a story about Niko Bellic who just came in from Serbia seeking for the american dream that his cousin Roman told him about, apparently it's all lies crime depicted in this game is dark and gritty forget hollywood-action movie styled gangster personalities. The gameplay might not even action packed as GTA V or San Andreas but the story quality surpasses these games every character has it own unique personalities every sins happened throughout the event of the game isnt black and white, every criminals has their own life goal and principle. Niko itself might doing a lot of dirty jobs from the gangsters but he did it because he had no other choice. The game itself also filled with present day pop-culture, political satires and parodies you could laugh to yourself while listening to the radio or watching the TV show and the ingame internet. In other way this game is great if you like crime dramas and gangster movies.

Pros:
+Great story
+One of the best voice acting in video game
+Good Soundtrack
+Great "dark" vibe
+Realism physics, still better than Watch Dogs
+Modding of course

Cons:
-Games For Windows Live (no explanation needed its pure ♥♥♥♥)
-Console port, need a good pc to run in good settings
-(For some audience)Slow paced gameplay, dont expect Michael Bay-esque gameplay
-Clumsy controls great animation though

Enjoyable game overall if you got it on the consoles. That's not my point though.

HORRIBLE DRM ALERT, if you use Games For Windows Live you risk not being able to access your save files at some point in the future. PC version is terribly optimized, most good computers will still have trouble running this, even though it's 8 years old.

Only good thing about the PC version is mods, which can give hours of entertainment, if you ignore the DRM and low framerates. As for multiplayer, just wait for GTA V Online.

Even though you can mostly avoid the sometimes forced dating mechanics, they're so baked in to the story that it generally comes off sounding like a coming-of-age puberty fanfic.

The final mission is bugged. I had to lock my framerate at 30fps with Fraps to complete it. What a joke.

I never even got to drive a tank.

But usually it was fun driving helicopters and cars and stuff anyway.

P.S. Have fun dealing with windows live.

Before I start this review I just want to say I highly recommend this game if you buy it for the console, but for the pc/ desktop it is one of the worse games I have ever had. With the pc version there are just way too many bugs and issues with the game that make it unplayable. Here are just a few that I can name off the top of my head.

1) When I started playing I could not access the phone Roman gives you on the second mission, which resulted in me having to restart the game and try the mission several times just to get the phone to pop up.

2) Also on the second mission the car that has the loan sharks that is supposed to pull up after Roman calls you doesnt show up half the time, which again resulted in me restarting the game/ mission.

3) The map itself would just randomly dissapear and Niko would be walking/ driving on air. I figured out this was because of the game not being able to keep up and load everything. This was partly due to my computer, which should not be a problem at all considering I have an Asus Republic of gamers laptop with a intel core i7 and NVIDIA Geforce GTX 765. I have been able to play every other game I have without map rendering issues at all.

4) Missions wouldn't activate when I walked into the marker.

5) Crashes. The game would crash on me randomly without any warning or anything and I could never figure out what it was that caused it to crash.

Again if you really want to play this game I recommend getting it for a console because this really is a good game, it just sucks for the pc. You can try it if you have one bad ♥♥♥ pc or desktop, but I wouldn't. Hopefully this helped you make your decision.
