1 big city is fantastic. There'll be things to see and do around every corner. You won't get tired of this game.

 

And a bonus is that, given the fact that there will be lots of 'non-American characters', there's still a possibility of further sequels in Europe - LONDON, kthnx.

THEN WHAT HAPPENED?????

If you run a website and decide to copy and paste this, please at least thank me...my eyes hurt...and yes I know it is only partial:

 

 

The new Liberty City is a bustling metropolis that is dense on the streets and intimidating vertically.  Many of New York City's iconic sights find new homes here, and may look striklingly similar, but are twisted to fit into the Grand Theft Auto world.  The MetLife building now bears the name Getalife, the Statue of Liberty is now the Statue of Happiness, and DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) is called BOABO (Beneath the Offramp of the Algonquin Bridge Overpass).

 

"We live here," notes the game's vice president of creative Dan Houser.  "We've been here for a number of years.  Even the guys in Scotland spend lots of time here with us.  It was an environment we felt had never been done to the level we were envisioning it in a video game.  From looking at all of the locations, this was the one that really stood out to us, and really had that impact.  It has all of these iconic things that you couldn't put into a game before."

 

Within Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar North has recreated four of the five boroughs that make up New York City, as well as a section of New Jersey.  It's a smaller geographical mass than San Andreas, but not an inch of this world is wasted or dedicated to vast stretches of country or desert.  It's a tightly packed metropolis that captures the eye with its decades of world-class architecture, sun-blocking towers, and extraordinary walks of life.  In the GTA universe, Brooklyn has been transformed to Broker, Manhattan has mutated into Algonquin, Queens is now Dukes, The Bronx is Bohan, and New Jersey has become Alderney.

 

The city is brought to life with an amazing level of realism.  Sunlight glistens beautifully off of glasswork, illuminates the intricate detailing of century old brick, and even reveals just how realistic an ordinary bag of trash can look.  As the sun begins to set, the city takes on a whole different appearance.  Buildings that were once eye-popping attractions slowly become ominous obelisks.  As any New Yorker will tell you, there's a big difference between New York during the day and New York at night.  Liberty City will perfectly capture that quality.

 

Even the texturing of the Algonquin streets, which are filled with crater-like potholes and occasional glimpses of the brick used in a world gone by, are greatly vained in design and something that you can't tear your eye from.  The visula makeup of the city "was something we could capture real well and really understand the minute aspects of its personality," adds Houser.  "Trying to put that into a video game is something that we think is unique to the video game medium.  It was a way that, we could capture some aspects of the experience of living here that you couldn't put into a film, you couldn't put into a TV show, and you couldn't put into a book - because you are actually wandering about and meeting some of the freaks that you meet on the streets here.  And that's what it's all about - meeting the same kind of freaks you'd meet on the streets, the angry yuppies you'd met there.  A big part of New York life is walking around the streets and meeting lunatics.  That's something that we definitely tried to put into the game.  We are trying to give it that life and difference between the neighborhoods and the difference between the kinds of people.  We are trying to capture the Capital of the World aspect of New York. There are lots of non-American characters in the game."

 

One of these foreigners is Niko Bellic.  His home is in Eastern Europe, and he likely may never have traveled to Liberty City if it wasn't for his cousin Roman.  With ife not working out in the homeland, "Bellic turns up in Liberty City because he's been receiving e-mails from his cousin Roman, that read like: 'I live this amazing life, it's the American Dream come true.  I have two women.  I have four hot tubs.  I have fifteen sports cars," Houser elaborates.  "And [bellic] believes it."  His bid to flee his past for what he thought would be the greener pastures of America couldn't be any further from the truth.  Roman has been lying to him.  He isn't rich.  He isn't popular.  And he's actually in a load of trouble.  He lied to his cousin to hide his own failures in life.

 

While he may make you contemplate strangling your own flesh and blood, Roman is the only person that you know in America.  He serves as one of your main friends, motivations, and connections at the start of the game.  Unlike San Andreas, players won't get a chance to see Bellic in his homeland.  You will see his life unfold from the moment he steps into Liberty City.

 

All of the screenshots seen in the article were taken on an Xbox 360 debug unit, but are not representative of the final quality of the graphics.  In the coming months, the game will only look better.

He's probably showing his appreciation to his girlfriend. What a good sport she is! She must love him to do all this, I would have said no!
