Is GTA IV worth buying?

Recommended Posts

tronheisenberg

I was a COD fan boy until I played GTA V online, and now I'm hooked. However I've seen a lot of posts saying GTA IV is a modded abomination. Is this game still worth buying and playing online legitimately? Or should I just stick to GTA V?

GTA IV is a very unique experience definitely worth buying, SP and MP wise. Surely not every lobby is modded and f*cked. Racing, coop, mafiya work/cops n crooks can be really really fun.

GTA IV on the PC is not heavily modded, but numbers are dwindling. It has some excellent modes though - Cop 'n Crooks (if played with people who know what they are doing) blows anything from V Online out of the water for me.

 

I'd say it's worth getting it just for the single player campaign though. Graphics may look a bit out dated on the consoles, but maxed out on the PC it's matured quite well.

On the PC version, you only get placed into modded lobbies if you have a mod installed. It could range from a Trainer (which I love using btw), ICE enhancer, to a car mod. The story is easily the best out of most games of any genre. TLAD adds to that story as a very exciting and gritty compliment. TBOGT is more like SA, very over the top and the missions are great fun, albeit with a bad story line. So, yes it's very worth buying.

Even though the game has many problems and isn't the best (vice city is the king), the game holds up incredibly well and I'd definatley recommend both IV and it's DLC's. The game is extremely cheap nowadays :)

if your PC can handle it, I would recommend you to install (afterwards) the Icehancer mod. The work that the guys did is mindblowing.

You won't believe the graphics after you got that mod.

 

Beside of that, I still love the atmosphere of IV. And the rest is that what the other buddies told you ^

 

edit: maybe your PC will bitching around at the installation, I had this problem and it was the only mindblowing negatively thing.

You got me there.

 

All the jokes aside, GTA IV is literally $20 on Steam (and it isn't even on sale, I bought it for 5 bucks). I think you should wait for Steam Sale and buy GTA IV Complete Edition.
