Grand Theft Auto IV


Ah yes its that time again Grand Theft Auto perhaps one of the most controversial gaming series as of this Tuesday has been released to the general populace I got my copy [and thats why this hasn’t been done earlier] and i have to say it is sublime.

I am no where near the only person that thinks so either Metacritic which takes the review score of many many reviews and gives an average has at time of writing the Playstation 3 version with the max 100 out of 100 from 19 reviews [Here] and the Xbox 360 at 99 out of 100 from 31 reviews [Here].

The story so far has been very interesting don’t worry I’m not going to give any spoilers. It looks amazing even if you like me are stuck with a standard def TV, and even with the upgraded graphics it still looks like GTA. I have played now for around 8 hours and have still not made it off the first island there is so much to do and see even on the first island. I spent around 40 mins just watching the in game tv in my apartment and that was only one channel. There as always is a wide selection of radio stations and anyone should be able to find something that they like. If you have an xbox or ps3 and don’t have this game and of course are over 18 you need it now!

As I said before the GTA Series has come a long long way in six years. Who would have thought that they would be where they are today, I came across an old BBC video from 1996 that the BBC have put on there website. Its of what was to become Rockstar North working on there very first GTA game. Its pretty Interesting and does go to show how far they really have come.
