Grand Theft Auto IV
The smash hit that made free-roaming, open world games popular is back for a ninth installment in the form of Grand Theft Auto IV. For the first time ever, experience the series in stunning High Definition on your Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3!
The Story So Far…
GTA IV takes you to a vastly upgraded Liberty City where you will follow European immigrant Nikolai "Niko" Bellic in his pursuit of the “American Dream.” Lured to the States by his shady cousin Roman, he quickly finds that things are not as he expected. As it turns out, Roman is heavily in debt to the wrong people, and Niko is now left to bail him out of trouble – by any means necessary.
Traditionally, the GTA series has required the completion of fixed missions before advancing in the game. However, GTA IV adopts a format where the line between main and side missions is blurred. Niko is now armed with a cell phone and his phone could ring at any time. Who knows who or what will be on the other end?
Details, Details, Details
A fully customizable Niko means you will be able to pull up to a boutique, enter the shop, choose out your clothes, and purchase them – just like in real life. Also, remember when carjacking was made easy? Well not anymore. In Grand Theft Auto IV, you will be asked to hotwire cars, meaning time is of the essence. One slip up could land you a night in the slammer. These are just some of the detailed improvements in gameplay for the latest installment of the game.
What Else Ya Got
Similar to Gears of War, a cover system has been added. The targeting system has been vastly improved over previous versions. Individual relationships are now dynamic, meaning your actions will greatly affected you relationships throughout the game. These are just a few of the ways this series will forever change how you feel about Grand Theft Auto.
