ae86touge's review of GTA 4

★★☆☆☆

“Where do I begin! First of all, never ever buy this...”

Written on: 21/10/2008 by ae86touge (4 reviews written)

Good Points
The graphics really are amazing! The gameplay and physics are incredible. The story is like something from a film. Its all such an improvement over GTA san andreas graphics wise. The cover system can really help in gun fights and the melee combat rocks. An innovation in gaming graphics.

General Comments
Where do I begin! First of all, never ever buy this game. Rent it, complete it, get the achievments then take it back. Seriously, after the 5 day rental time you'll be BORED on this game anyway in my opinion. The complete lack of content gives this game one of the shortest life span of any game I have ever played. After the missions, there is nothing to do but watch tv in a game your watching on tv or go to the comedy club and watch ricky gervais (Why?). The blurr between story lines and free roam is more like a towering wall I feel. It is still the strict mission based structure of all the previous games. The missions are repetitive and require you mainly to drive/fly/boat somewhere and kill/deliver/scare/rat out someone/drugs/guns for another game character. That is seriously the formulae for the missions. Gone were the days in san andreas when you could do anything. Here is a small section of missing content: planes, more than 2 helicopters, more guns, jet pack, ability to buy houses, modifying ca4s, gambling, ability to change nikos HAIR, the general feeling of freedom you get with the GTA franchise of games. This has killed off in my opinion the traditional over-the-top fun, adictive and never-ending freeplay of well structured missions and side missons. No longer can you recruit 'homies' and tear up the streets. There are NO sidemissions or fun games AT ALL. You get no feeling what so ever for the characters at all, not like previous games. The city is more like a cardboard box city I feel. Ok so times square is smart at night with all the logo lights and neons - but that isn't gonna make me want to buy the game! I personally think its boring, bog standard run of the mill 2 week MAX game, unlike the immortality of san andreas, vice city and gta 3. I could name the amount of guns on ONE hand. Therefore do not recommend GTA 4.
