Anyone get it? Comments? Looks cool, but I want to know if they added enough cool stuff to make it different than the others.

Definitely worth picking up. Far and away the best GTA game out of the entire franchise. The story is actually entertaining, the voice acting is brilliant, the dialog is hilarious, and the missions are fun and vary one after the other. I've heard some reports that the single player is 50-60 and after putting 5 hours in doing single player and only being at 8.7% completion I can believe it. If you don't care at all about playing multi-player the single player is definitely worth buying but multi-player adds another whole dimension. 16 player free roam, 12 vs 4 cops and robbers, death match, team death match, etc.

There is a reason this game is averaged 99.6 out of 100 from reviewers.

Wait so the multi player version has to be purchased seperatly from the single player version? I was under the impression both came on the same disc.

ok cool...something about the way HookEm worded it made me think they were seperate.

Yeah it was worded poorly. I was just trying to say that the single player is so good that if you never planned on playing multi-player at all it would still be worth the $60 just for the regular single player.

I just saw a commercial for this game and made me want to steal a car and run over a cop...:rolleyes:

i say it's good entertainment. Have fun.

I don't think I'm going to buy it for my house, but i understand why everyone likes it so much.

In the early 90's when the new madden would come out or the NCAA football, I almost felt like it was my birthday!:D

You actually "become" the main character in the game. You play in a massive cyber world that allows you to do pretty much anything. It's always operating 24/7 just like a real city is too. You're given missions which you must complete (theres hundreds) to finish the game, but you can also just mess around the entire time. There isn't any losing unless you fail a mission

If you enjoy single player games only then the ps3 is the way to go multiplayer on the other hand is a way different story I have owned both and I could not stand the lag in call of duty 4 on ps3 i can only imagine how it is in gta4 :puke....im just the type of person that if I buy a game i want to get the most out of it...after i beat a single player im going to want to play online and with the :Censor: server PS3 has I was not able to do that. Sold it within a month and played cod4 about a week ago on Ps3 and they have done nothing to fix it....another thing to think of is new content for games comes out way sooner on xbox live cod4 maps came out 3 weeks before on x box than thy did on ps3

Dont listen to this guy...hes what you call a "fanboy".


fanboy
1. A person who is completely loyal to a game or company reguardless of if they suck or not.
i played call of duty for months and only experienced problems once......and its the the "call of duty server" not the ps3 server and the whole content thing is a call of duty thing....not true with all games.

lol, i understand...you were just showing the symptoms of a xbox fanboy.

you picked a bad time to get rid of your ps3, lots of good games will be coming out this year. xbox definitely had the advantage in years prior but no longer, :D

The line up of games does look good and I do wish xbox would come out with external blu-ray like I said for single player games PS3 is better just because of the better graphics alone

thats only xbox's problem (other than the RRod) but that is not really xbox's fault that the hd dvd lost the battle between Blu ray and hd dvd...

HD DVD lost horribly against Blu-Ray. It actually takes a while to say they should've named it something else.

Original Socom is where it is at. What was the level on the rig out in the ocean or whatever? That one was the best. Seals had such an advantage.

Which level is that? It has been a while since I've played, lots of fun though. We moved to Boston the summer before my sophomore year, and besides football, I had nothing else to do. Me and my brother used to play that game for hours and hours on end online.

desert glory is the one with the hostages in the building and the seals have to go get them and bring them back to the truck. there is a big 3 story building in the middle and a garage and some destroyed buildings on the right

The Xbox 360 has EXCLUSIVE rights to future downloadable content and expansions to GTA IV. I can see arguments for a PS3 but if you are buying a console just to play GTA IV you are making a mistake not getting it on the 360. I bought a 360 because I like the game lineup WAY more than the PS3 lineup. I bought my PS3 so I could play BD movies and haven't purchased a single game for it, yet.

This is great, I finished all of my final papers and exams before finals week even began, and now I've been sitting in my room playing GTA 4 all day since I bought it on Thursday while everyone else is studying! Already at 46%, so far it's really good.
