Yea man i here you on that! The rock station is horrendous!

If they were going to make it that crappy they could have at least allowed us to use our own songs from the HDD or the media devices

there are only several good songs on the Rock Station (I listed only to the Rock Station because everything else sucks) like Smashing Pumpkins.

You obviously played it for the wrong reasons.

You say its an insanely awsome game like all the critics, but yet majority of the actuall gamers don't think so.
You're comparing a racing game to the GTA series. Once you can do half the stuff in Burnout that you can do in GTA and on the same scale, we can talk.

Also, everyone I know IRL seems to think the game is awesome so there goes that theory.

*sigh* Im not comparing the 2. Murlocke asked if there is a better looking open-world game out there. And I answered his question - now back off.

What theory? That the majority of people don't like GTA4 is all that great? Yeah, the game is awsome for the first week like Brawl was but once you realize that its all repetition like Assasin's Creed was, it aint that great of a game. Hell, majority of people Ive asked agreed. The ones who didn't are the ones who havent played the game for more then a couple of hours (other then Murlocke)

Other then the fact the game has the most content in a game Ive ever played, the game pretty much is boring, repetitious, and possibly the glitchiest game I've ever played (and that applies to both the 360 and PS3)

The music is mostly up and coming bands like Juliette and the licks and LCD soundsystem etc etc. Liberty City is New York, and New York is all about fresh and unheard music. To be honest, its nice to hear new music on the radio. Vice City was great with its classic rock ballads but I dont think itd work with GTAIV.

i like some of the features of the game the best being wen you drunk but still the game could have been alot better. the graphics on the XBOX could have been better.

ive heard that a few PS3's have cloncked out casue of the game as well. but thats just rumors. but still the game is a let down. well thats my opinion

Sure, the game is great. GTA IV's story and character development is probably the best one in the franchise. But the game is no where as revolutionary as from GTA II to III (quote from IGN reviews).
Meh, I think that it is extremely revolutionary. It perfects the story, the missions vary from easy to difficult with many in between.
Quote:
If there is any major update, its the addition of multiplayer. But again, the MP is far from perfect due to its simplicity and lack of balancing. The graphic is iincrementally better than the previous GTA title. But who doesn't expect this when the game is been release on a new console generation?
I don't understand how it is simple. There are 16 game modes, aren't there? And please read: Grand Theft Auto: IV Graphics Rant
The fact is, the graphics are extremely better because at the level of detail of the entire game. Just look around.

I know there are many refined features in GTA IV such as cellphone use, new aim, social activities, email and internet and public transportation. But there is a cost for these. Now we have less weapon choices, less side missions, less vehicles, less character customization, smaller city, no estate, and most of all~ less home save parking space!! I remember I could stuff up to 6 cars into GTA III's home garage but now I only get 2 vehicles parking space infront of every safe house. Not mention, your car gets jacked from your park spot occaionally. But I do welcome the taxi feature, which makes go around MUCH easier.
To quote Valve: "The thing to keep in mind here is "Quality over Quantity." Players would far prefer to have 10 unique, well balanced, and fun to use weapons than 40 unbalanced weapons, some of which are slightly tweaked versions of others."[quote] I would rather have this many individual weapons than a bunch of weapons that are simply variations of each other. And the reason that there is less Character Customization is because Niko is an "person." He acts in his own way. Not your way. It keeps him from looking stupid. And seriously, did you need 6 cars? Just go jack one.
Quote:
Regarding missions... they are almost exactly the same layout as previous GTA title except much easier. I remember you could remote control RC cars to bomb destinated targets and steal a fighter jet in the previous titles. This level of complexity is just not present in GTA IV. For this game, all you need to do is stack up tons of ammo from Little Jacob at a discount price and storm the target with a pair of heavy armed homies (Dawyne). I often finish most shoot out mission unharmed.
I think that RS was going towards REALISM. RC bombs? Are you kidding me? Fighter Jets? I would like to see anyone steal that!
Quote:
When compare with other GTA IV titles... the game is much narrower and there is less you can do after main story. In fact, this maybe the first GTA that I will be able to have 100% completion.
This game is one of the most comprehensive games I have played? What more could you ask for?
Quote:
Final word... It may not be fair to ask Rockstar to included all the extra features from previous title on top of new implenmentations and still selling it as one game. So I would definately give this game a 9.5.... but it doesn't deserve to be ranked higher than previous GTA titles.
I disagree...

I disagree...
have you played any other GTA titles than this one? Although most of the stuff I said regarding the game are subjective. But it appears Rocketstar spend no effort in improving game missions. With the new aiming and cover system, the missions offer no challenge at all. I only failed 5 times out of 60ish missions I did. They could at least upgrade AI in missions a little bit.

Here is what I did.

1. Stock up on ammo. Call Little Jacob. Spend all your $$, you can't buy nothing else except cloth anyways.
2. Call Dwayne for two backup firepowers when become available (20% into the game).
3. Use sniper to take out as many as you could from a distance. Too bad they don't running around or rush toward you.
4. If its a chasing mission, just chill and maintain distance, eventually AI will crash into enough things and their car won't start. Then take it out with easy.

^^ Your sig sucks.


I believe some people expect WAYYYYY too much from a game for some reason. It seems like these days you would need to get a personal servant and someone to play the game for you so you could drink Mhai Thai's in order to satisfy some folks (exaggeration).
