Gamer Limit: In Defence of Grand Theft Auto IV, Part One: My City Screams

Gamer Limit writes: "Grand Theft Auto IV's PS3 and Xbox 360 releases are, according to Gamerankings, the first and third best reviewed games of this console generation (with Super Mario Galaxy snuggled between their awkward percentage divide). The series has consistently rated well since the release of GTA III, which is often cited as one of the most successful transitions into 3-D any game franchise has ever made. GTA IV's leap wasn't as significant, but it was, the reviews argued, just as impressive."

there is no defense for gta iv, it will forever sit among the games that should not have been bought

This had to have been one of the most overrated, if not THE most overrated, game ever.

i don't know how many people i have said that exact thing to. i regreted it an hour after i bought it. lent it to my mate because i wasnt going to ever play it again and he gave it back the next day.

There is no other game that i can say that from the moment i installed it i was disappointed, i KNEW as soon as the game started that it was crap. I got it on pc, and not only was the installation a piece of $#!+, (you have to be online to play it with a third party program...a single player game), but the graphics were TERRIBLE, the character models were ps2 era, even with everything absolutely cranked it looked like a ps2 game, and as to why it ran badly even though i have a good must be the worst multiplat of all time. The gameplay was weak, driving reeeeeeeally sucked, and they took all the fun elements from the previous game out, no stat leveling up and no car customisation in the same way as the last. sequels should not be downgrades. GTAIV= my last rockstar game, i will cherish the memories of gta III, vice city and san andreas, that will have to do me

EDIT: i just trasnfered all my games to a new hard drive, and i even installed games that i had a 1% chance of even playing ever again....but GTAIV is the only one i didn't bother to install, if only i had gone back to big w and tricked them into taking it back ( i did it with LOTR conquest.....also ps2 graphics and crap gameplay...i've wisened up though, demo's help, and "torrent renting" before i buy games

I hated the game once I realised how lacking it was but I'm really pleased I bought it. Withought GTA4 I wouldn't of had enough cash for the trade-in I've just done to get Uncharted2. =)
