I love Rockstar. I love GTA. But the guys above were right; for fans of what makes GTA GTA, 4 was a little bit disappointing.
the graphics for 4 were jaw-dropping, the story and characters some of the best in industry history and the gameplay mechanics were solid as a rock.
GTA4 WAS a great game.
That being said, it was NOT a GTA game. The city felt empty, like driving around a movie set. There just wasn't anything to do besides the main story
and going to the bar with your idiot cousin.
The first or second commenter said something about striking a balance between Vice City and San Andreas and I think that is the perfect direction for
the series. The story and character caliber of Vice City or 4 coupled with San Andreas' massive game world and depth of side missions, mini-games and
time-sinks would TAKE OVER MY LIFE. 4 was a rental for me personally.
