Rockstar has given us what we’d expect of a PC version of the game, but only just and there are several improvements that should have been made but weren’t. That, combined with the other problems, is enough to get us riled up.
Grand Theft Auto IV is a great game once you get into it, of course. The open-world, the awesome soundtrack and the total free-reign to cause carnage and experiment with the game world make this a really impressive game. The PC version also brings across and opens up the chance for players to create their own stories and thrilling police chases, which is something we love.
That said, while the game itself is great, the PC version of GTA IV isn’t the definitive one that players should be looking to get intimate with. It’s playable and fun and just what you would want from a Grand Theft Auto game, but it doesn’t outperform the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions and frankly feels like more of a token gesture than a sincere effort to make the most of what the PC could bring to the game.
