IGN UK writes: "After the colossal success of GTA IV earlier this year comes yet another epic freeform game from those masters of open world gaming at Rockstar. This fourth chapter of the series sees the franchise making its debut on next gen.
For those of you new to the franchise, the concept is simple. Ride around a sprawling open world city (in this case the lovingly recreated streets of the City of Angels) looking for races against likeminded opponents, in order to earn cash and spend it on upgrades and new vehicles. You start your racing career in a clapped-out rust bucket, which you must drive around LA looking to make a name for yourself. Before long, you've met up with a wise-cracking associate who sets you up with your first race and within minutes, you're battling for supremacy of the freeways and streets."
