Sam Leith takes an exclusive test-drive of this year's most hotly tipped video game.
In his review he writes:
"It is, I know, bad taxi etiquette to punch my elbow out and smash the offside window. The taxi-driver thinks so too. We screech to a halt in the middle of the traffic, and he gets out to give me a piece of his mind".
Grand Theft Auto 4 is an important game for Rockstar, not least because it was the first title in the franchise to use the newly created RAGE engine.
There’s never a bad time to relive its magic, and with rumours of a potential Grand Theft Auto IV remaster making the rounds, why wouldn’t you?
