    GTA IV is a long and overall highly entertaining sequel and reinvention of a series many thought had grown stale prior

    Rated on August 17, 2009 by loopy_101

    With a concept as simple as GTA's, it is a real wonder how Rockstar North are still capable of wowing gamers with each sequel. It has revolutionised the action adventure genre and innovated gaming its...
