Well this could be your second life. It's very good and has so much hard work in it. Although when your done with the story you should go to multiplayer, but the problem is that when you play multiplayer and your level 1 your gun does not have much power, but if your level 10 your gun is the bomb. The story is long so its worth it but you should wait for GTA5 or get GTA SA. If you don't have online (PSN or XBOX LIVE) you should really rent it. You will love this game, it has two DLC (downloadable contents) and they're both $15. Graphics are good, PS3 graphics are lighter than the XBOX 360. I played around 130 hours and i still have no idea how! (had it since 2008). Soundtrack is good and funny, talks about sex too much though. If you LOVE the GTA series get Grand Theft Auto IV Complete Edition. Out for PC, PS3, and XBOX 360. ENJOY but when your done with singleplayer you will start getting bored of this game. Sell it would be my option.
