If you haven’t been living in a cave then you know that Grand Theft Auto IV is the fourth installment of Rockstar Games popular series. GTA IV has you playing the role of Niko Bellic, an immigrant straight off the boat from Eastern Europe. Niko is convinced by his cousin to cross the pond and join him in his cushy mansion and life of luxury. Of course that wouldn’t be any fun… you as Niko soon find out that achieve the true ‘American Dream’, you have to hustle to make that paper.
GTA IV brings you to Liberty City, a land of opportunity if you’re willing to crack some heads. Rockstar has gone all out with new revamped graphics and supurb attention to detail. Liberty City now consists of four new boroughs, plus an extra area outside of Liberty City. You’ll have the opportunity to climb around and an array of vehicles at your disposal.

New to this series will be the introduction of an online multiplayer mode. Not much has been disclosed about the details, since only a few select people have actually been able to play the game. Word on the streets is, that if you and a couple of cohorts are riding in the same vehicle you’ll be able to change the radio station independently of everyone in the car, so music selection will not be left to those pulling shotgun duty.
What this means to you: You can finally get rid of your older systems when you feel like getting ‘Wayne Brady’ on some ho’s. Blowing things up and reaping havoc will be brought to a new level when you’re rolling with your online cronies.
