GTA IV wasn't that bad, not good compared to Vice City or San Andreas, San Andreas should be redone with better graphics for the PS3.
Can't wait for the two new games!!!

The only problem with this game like so many others is the tagged on the end multiplayer. Not only this but the trophy patch came far too late after most people had completed and become bored of the game.

Game play was terrible, especially the physics engine your character can trip over just about anything and fall to the ground, not to mention who's idea was it to implement a mobile phone and have other characters call you to ask if you'd like to do something with them.

The GTA series is far from dead, I just think the implementation of GTA IV was terrible, GTA IV showed promise but didn't deliver graphics, story line, side missions, "Realism" (FAIL), all sucked. The whole point of GTA is to do stuff in a city that you wouldn't / shouldn't do in real life, all of the GTA's up until now have been arcadey and that's what made them fun Rockstar went overboard trying to make IV "Realistic".


Good thing thats your opinion not what most think about GTA IV sorry to hear that, sell your copy and let the other have some fun

GTA4 was one of the best games I've ever played, memorable, great gameplay and good graphics. GTA4 did so many things good that most of us are ready to drive through liberty city again, because its just super fun!! Dont forget GTA4 was a 10 out of 10 for most reviewers and this DLC printed on a disk is based of that great game.
