    • Between 3 to 4 (Don't like it and I have no taste)

7/10

Good game i love the ragdoll physics,car physics and glitches etc

I play this game occasionally when im bored with GTA 5 but i dont like the missions structure they lack variety.

I just play it for few minutes for fun and freeroam but i wont ever play the story again from start till the end.

About a 8,5. I really love the story mode, best in GTA if you ask me. The technological advancements at the time (graphics and physics) were also jaw dropping, I will never forget the first day I popped it in on release. What keeps it from a 9+ for me is that it isn't as fun to freeroam in. The city is a bit cramped and the more 'arcadey/unrealistic' way of playing of the older GTA's make it a bit more fun to pick up and create havoc in after completing the story mode. Which is why I'd only play GTA IV to relive that great story mode.

Obviously 10/10, best GTA by far with the most compelling story, protagonist and characters. The atmosphere is also the best, the missions are more grounded which I prefer + the LC is still my favourite in any open world game.


Overall one of my favourite games of all time. Damm shame it wasn't better received, GTA V would be a much better game if it was. I doubt Rockstar will ever go serious with GTA again but at least we will always have GTA IV. Unlike many 3D era fans, for me the game delivered (have been a fan since VC) and I really liked the more mature gritty direction

10/10

Best GTA in terms of story-telling.

And in terms of physics.
Atmosphere is really great, only GTA III can be considered better imho.

Graphics was beast at the time of release.

Only optimization on PC is bad (glithes, performance, lack of AA), but if you have decent PC and 4K monitor, and you installed patch 1.0.0.4 version, then you good to go ))

69/10.

Best story... (so deep yet funny, those side activities rock...)

Best physics... (you could crash your vehicle til making it look like a beaten-up cheap toy)

Best atmosphere (feels like some sort of v2 of III's)

One of the best soundtrack choices (almost in pair with VC's, Electro-Choc used to be my drug back then)

 

GTA IV is perfect, absolutely no flaws. Period.

GTA IV is the video game equivalent of The Sopranos for me. New stuff come all the time and while some of them are great I always keep coming back to this game. Absolute masterpiece 10/10

An absolute masterpiece ... 10/10

If any game since the HD/PS3, Xbox 360 era deserved a 10/10, it'd be GTA IV for sure.

It really felt like the step from GTA 2 to GTA 3.

I've always said GTA IV was about 90-95% perfect.

The only things I would have changed were;

Needy friends: Stop them calling you. Instead they text when they want to hang out and you don't receive a penalty for ignoring them.

Add rewards: There were no in-game rewards for shooting all pigeons or completing all the vigilante/most wanted missions.You could have at least earned an outfit that gives you limited immunity from a wanted level and some free armour at your safe house.

That was one of the few points I considered weaknesses of the game. Doesn't give the player enough motivation to %100 complete the game, because the only rewards he'll get after the time and effort he puts are a parked helicopter, and unlimited ammo, which reverts back to the default highest limit each time the game is loaded anyway.

 

Still wasn't a big deal for me, but I'm glad they refined that with The Lost and Damned anyway. For taking the Seagulls out, you'll unlock Innovation chopper in Clay's bike list. For completing the bike theft missions for Angus, you'll get the sport bike Bati 800 spawning outside your safehouses. For winning twelve bike races, you'll have the sport bike Hakuchou spawning outside your safehouses. And for each ten Gang War missions you complete, you'll get a weapon spawning inside your safehouses, but that also depends on your progress in the storyline.

9.25 or 9.375/10 I persosnally would NEVER rate anything a 10/10 as there is always ways to improve anything

Spoiler

My main grope with this game is that it is not really all that great of a playground to use and be creative with. Remember the Dodo in GTA 3? That piece of couldn't fly if it's life depended on it. In fact is so bad that if it died, then it would probably grow wings and fly better as a dead dodo, but it was always fun to fly it because it was an Easter egg and the only flyable vehicle. It has no purpose to the story (ignoring that one mission ok!) but it was still added in as a easter egg. Why couldn't GTA IV do that? Why couldn't GTA IV have purchasable houses or just garages in general? Surely this could have been involved with the story such as choosing to buy a place to stay out of 20+ options to hide out after Three Leaf Clover or steal a car then choose a garage to hide the car in a purchasable garage. This would introduce you to the idea of buying property. You also couldn't let us apply to work at fast food restaurants or add pizza places in the Liberty City OF ALL PLACES? Overall I just don't like how GTA 4 only added in stuff that HAD to have a purpose in the story. You just couldn't do stuff that it DOESN'T tell you about. This is quite possibly the only thing the 2D universe does best. What I mean is... well... for example. Take the idea off having hidden weapon all across the map. The game doesn't tell you there are, you just end up finding them. This is cool as hell as it feels rewarding when you know where each weapon is and you get them. This is even cooler when Rockstar puts them in hard to reach places such as the pistol at the entrance to the to the Callahan Bridge. You had to find a way to it as the ledge wasn't climbable so you had to get creative. Also the ak47 and molotov at Portland was put in such a way that you had to actually plan how to get it. (I'm just using GTA III as an example but this also applies to every other non-HD gta game as well) While GTA 4 did this as well it was quite tone down then before. Whole point is moments like  those are awesome and they didn't just apply to guns. Remember the hobos from the abandon tunnel? You could run them over to get free molotovs. Remember trying to enter the car crusher to see what happened? Very skilled players were actually able to fly the dodo and land in it. Remember the banshee and internet cafe stowed away behind glass? At first glance you may think its just for display and the glass is indestructible but to your surprise you can very much destroy it to get in. In GTA 5 you can plan out how exactly you were going to steal a jet/tank/buzzard from Fort Zancudo without dying to see if it will work. Nobody told you to do that, you just did it on your own. same applies to underwater packages, climbing up Mount Chilliad, going to the abandon mine shaft, and probably more. Now GTA IV does have its share for of interiors to explore that you are surprise to see exist, the surprising amount of details you'll probably never notice till 10+ years later, and the map is to some extent built of GTA IV climbing system so can reach some seemingly impossible to reach places on foot which is really cool and the Sulton RS all the way in Alderney was a really cool Easter egg but there really was just too little amount of these things, but the main difference between GTA III/SA/LCS/VCS/5 and GTA IV is that they DIDN'T rely on euphoria and glitches to have fun in the game. GTA IV is fun as hell when playing with the ragdoll such as jumping out of a vehicle (especially helicopters) going 100+ miles per hour to go flying and pushing people off places or down stairs is halirous, or trying to jump of building or out helicopters to try to survive by hitting the side of surfaces. Still it's my favorite GTA game because it was my first and really invested lot of my childhood into it. But my favorite surprisingly isn't the most fun to me. I also prefer it to the older GTA games for the realistic atmosphere, animations, more buttons being able to do more things, having a great story and characters, weapons, characters, and vehicles having an actual feel to them when using/controlling them compared to the 3D universe and more. Also a lot of people say graphics and draw distance doesn't matter and well... I don't know about you, but I could NEVER look at GTA IV the same again with GTA III's graphics. That would ruin the whole atmosphere for me. These are the same reason why I prefer the HD universe over the 3D universe, as the just feel a lot more... authentic to me.  (I find it pretty odd how the main two GTA games that suffer the most from these problems are GTA IV and GTA VC as these two are American Venom's favorite GTA games)

The fact GTA IV and Vice City are my two favourite GTA games pretty much indicates my tastes are top shelf.😉
