How does it control? Towering above all else, is it fun enough to pull you away from the assuredly awesome single-player story?
We're going to take a slightly different tack with our look at GTA IV's multiplayer; with a number of solid arguments for and against some of the game's decisions, we thought it might be cool to do a 'Good Cop, Bad Cop' discussion, with Cam taking the sour, embittered Bad Cop role and yours-truly taking the glowingly affirmative stance.
Who's right? Who's wrong? Honestly – you won't know until you play it.
But at least you won't have long to wait…"
