never touched GTA 4 this gen. tried it for about an hour at launch, didnt like the car controls and graphics and played nothing like GTA SA so never bought it. Now im looking to escape the FPS fad and the complete edition is only $20. Yay or Nay?

If you think your computer will handle it, i say yay. I honestly really liked GTA4, sure it isnt 10 out of 10 worthy but it was damn good fun. I would give it a solid 8.

Yeah, go for it.

A really great gangster adventure in its SP mode, and very hectic and fun racing moments in its MP.

Sure. I thought it was a great game. By no means perfect, but it will keep you busy for a long time.

My primary form of transportation was taxis. Gets you through the entire game. If you don't want to drive, take a cab.

I saw GTA4 in bargain bins. In that case it would be totally worth it. At closer to full price.... it's probably still worth it too :P

on PS3.

I purchased a used ps3 yesterday and started playing through uncharted. I completely forgot just how lousy the dualshock was... get everything you can minus fighters on 360.

It was VERY poorly made for PC. But on console it is good. I own it for PC and hate it. So damn buggy.

You are a rare case. It's well known that it runs like crap on PC. I beat it, but it ran like crap the whole time.

Its an amazing game, but if you go in expecting a big giant state with a variety of boring escort missions, its not like SA. The mechanics are great, the world is alive and polished and the story is fantastic, but if you don't care for those things at all and expect another crazy game with jet packs and gangsters then you should look elsewhere.

Its probably one of the best games this generation, but it is a slow starter.

I heard the game ran better on Nvidia cards, which I hope is true since I just got the GTA collection on Steam and I have an Nvidia card. It ran great on my PS3, so I hope I don't see too many issues here.

GTAIV is masterful. One of my favourite games this generation. The amount of detail and things you can do is impeccable. Buy it!

if you have the rig, get it for PC. it's one of my favorite games this gen just due to story, driving, voice acting, and the massive and lively recreation of NYC.

I have an NVIDIA card in my PC, so I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you.

At $20, sure, go for it.
