"As you've no doubt read, Rockstar has been doing the rounds recently with an impressive new hour plus long tour of the latest build of GTA IV. Our U.S. and U.K. compatriots have already taken extensive looks at the new demo, but there's so much to talk about in the game - whether it's the missions, the moment-to-moment action, the controls, the dynamic city, the technology, the graphics, or any of countless other aspects, that we're also chipping in with a little commentary of our own. A few days ago Patch posted his examination of the use of Euphoria middleware in GTA IV, and today I'm going to take a look at just how different the action and combat mechanics are from previous games in the series."
