      Grand Theft Auto IV is a good game, but it fails to match up with the previous Grand Theft Auto Game, San Andreas. I have the game for the Xbox 360.

      The graphics in Grand Theft Auto are better than the graphics in any of the previous games in this successful franchise. For the first time, the world looks very realistic and less cartoony. The animations in the game are very realistic and the lighting and shadows helps create a visually pleasing gaming experience.

      The story line is a strong point for the game. Grand Theft Auto has always been recognized for having very deep storylines which will attract attention and cause controversy, and Grand Theft Auto IV follows suite. The voice acting and the visual animations in the storyline helps keep you glued to the Xbox for many hours to see what will happen next.

      The city is very detailed, but it fails to have that complete city feel that San Andreas had. Liberty city is much smaller in size compared to San Andreas, but it is


      more congested. It would have been good to see a country side and mountain region in Liberty City, but oh well; I guess that we will have to wait until the next Grand Theft Auto for that to happen.

      A lot of detail was put into the pedestrians in Liberty City. The pedestrians go on about their every business such as grocery shopping, and going to work. At one point I saw a woman look both ways before crossing the street, and then she proceeded to cross and quickly backed up when another individual drove past a red light. Other things I’ve seen include of people looking in their rear view mirror prior to moving through traffic and people having conversations on cell phones.

      The music is good, but since you can use your own music, I barely listen to the radio. One problem with the radio stations is that they always seem to start at the beginning anytime you die/get busted. The radio stations on the Xbox 360 are not continuous, which means that you will ...


      • always hear that Swizz Beatz song everytime.

        The transportation in Grand Theft Auto IV is not as good as the transportation in Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. The game does not have helicopters, Airplanes or bikes, which is quite a letdown. The transportation from Grand Theft Auto San Andreas was realistic and fun. It was cool to hijack an airplane from one city and fly your entourage to another city to cause some havoc, but this is not present in Grand Theft Auto IV. Performing drive by’s on a bicycle and then pedalling off ferociously is also something else that I miss from GTA San Andreas, but although there are fewer types of transportations, there are more types of cars, and the cars handle better in GTA IV than in the other series.

        Another problem with Grand Theft Auto IV is the lack of customization. The only way to customization Niko, the main character, is by buying him new clothes. Unlike San Andreas, you cannot learn new fighting styles, you cannot workout in the gym and you

        cannot starve yourself to become skinny or you cannot eat a lot to become fat. The customization aspect of the game is what made San Andreas such a success, and the fact that this was taken out of the game makes GTA IV somewhat boring in terms of customization.

        The online game play in Grand Theft Auto IV is amazing! Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch are present and are both very fun to play. There are plenty of online options to help you play the exact type of match that you would like to. The customization in the game is a definite plus as well. You can customize your player, and the better you perform online, the more clothing and customization options that become available. The only problem with online play is that there is frequent disconnects from the server and that there is sometimes a lag, even when you are using a cable modem.

        Overall, Grand Theft Auto IV is a great game, but it is not as good as Grand Theft Auto San Andreas for a couple of reasons.
