i need to ask, does this review spoil anything? coz then im not watching it, i dont want any surprises/story elements ruined for me lol.

to me, GTA4 is the best game i've ever played. as said before, it's like watching a movie, only you get to play out the main role. and theres WAY more to do then just 'stealing cars and doing missions'.
no he only give background info on the game nothing bad.

Rockstar doesn't want to make enemies with the environmentalists. They can be a lot worse than the feminists.

lol he makes such a good point about having to make friends..it becomes the biggest chore.

but this game is still 10/10 for me..i wonder if he'll change his mind the more he plays it. at first i thought it was a bit slow, then it picks right up. especially if you try do all the side missions, including extras from Little Jacob, Roman, Brucie etc. thats as far as i am anyway
