Some time ago, there was a discussion if a computer game can be classified as a piece of art. Now, we can finally have an accurate answer because Grand Theft Auto IV is more than just a simple game. It is perfect both in terms of game-play and in regards to graphical elements. Grand Theft Auto IV is indeed a piece of art.
Grand Theft Auto IV offers new features for single player campaigns and upgrades to the multiplayer and community elements of the game. Now, the player can upload into a custom radio station his own music or he can create short videos and clips, edit them and share them with other members of the GTA IV community.
In the center of the GTA IV story is Nico Bellic, who comes to Liberty City as a Russian immigrant to meet his cousin Roman. Soon, Nico Bellic discovers an
entire network of illegal activities and he gets dragged into a world of organized crime. As the player progresses trough the game, Nico Bellic will gain new ranks in this world of crime; he will make new friends and new enemies.
The PC version of this game comes with an important feature: video capture and editing. For example, after you did something awesome, interesting or after you simple received some important award, press F2 within the first 30seconds of the special event. The game will capture these last 30 seconds. After, you can edit the video and share it with other GTA IV community members.
Graphically, GTA IV looks amazing, the PC version is even an improvement over the PS3 and Xbox version because it benefits from high definition graphic and improved character models. The entire city looks great, is full of details and colors, incredible textures and well designed vehicles and characters. However, due to some technical issues, the user may encounter some problems even on PCs with a top configuration. The game has some severe stability issues and you may encounter performance problems even on PCs that meet the system requirements. Rockstar has started to work towards clearing these problems and hopefully we will have a new patch as soon as possible.
Overall, GTA IV is a great game. Maybe one of the best games ever made and definitely a step forward in the "Grand Theft Auto history".
