GameSpot: Grand Theft Auto IV Review

Grand Theft Auto IV is a game that, in spite of its technical shortcomings on the PC, you simply have to play. The single-player game, which you can still play long after you complete the story, is the series' best by far, and the multiplayer features are good enough that you'll likely have no problem finding people to play with for many months to come.

The minor flaws that you'll experience are no more difficult to overlook than those in previous GTA games, and they're greatly outnumbered by the features that will impress and surprise you anytime you think you've already seen everything that the game has to offer. There's lots to see in Liberty City, so you'd best get started.

How did this seriously get 9/10 on the PC. Oh wait its CorruptSpot.

you should get lower or higher? for me, 9/10 is a fair score for GTAIV. it never deserve all the 10s. never was, never will be! the scale is amazing but it lacks FUN!

you must be kidding me to high of settings you kidding me.
GameSpot saying its to high because they got a computer that can't max it out so that's why they are saying this. they suck.

The performance in this game is REALLY terrible. There is nothing wrong with GameSpot saying what they are saying about the requirements. GTA IV is one of the worst performing games I've ever played. It's more demanding than Crysis despite looking rather average. (GTA IV is aliasing heaven).

To those living in a cave and still think Gamespot ain't fanboys

true that the game plays better with a controller?

You could always plug in a PS3 or 360 controller if you have the necessary cables and drivers anyway.

Pebz3629d ago

Perhaps whoever reviewed the game only previously played it on 360 or he just prefers that controller, but it's all merely speculation anyway.

What really makes the comment bad is the fact that you can actually use 360 (and PS3) controllers on a PC.

TrevorPhillips3629d ago

now thats an even score not 10, 10 was overrated for GTA IV on 360 and ps3 but a 9.0 for PC is a fair score

9 is the new 10 for Gamespot.
