^ Mitä noita gamespot kommentteja luin, niin tälläisiä jollakin ollut:
SLI gtx280 (1st PC) & game runs like on 8800GTX (2nd PC), pathetic. Some achivement can't be unlock online (playing without codes), like Chain Reaction, king of CUB3D, but on my sec.

Game is OK
Ja sitten vielä...
in a bid to stop piracy they have gone windows live ... i.e you can only save ur progress if you have 'live'
lets break it down shall we -
windows live = internet connection
no internet connection = no saves
no saves = unplayable

I see a lot of people complaining about the performance. Well, it runs smoothly on my PC (Radeon HD 4850, Intel E7200) with High details (an average of 35 FPS). Since I have no reason to be frustrated by technical issues, I will not insist on this.
The game looks awesome, except for the creepy shadow filtering. R* worked a lot to make the game look that good even on medium/low details (since everyone agreed that GTA 3 series did not have top graphics). The rain, fog and lighting effects (especially at night) are quite outstanding and unexpected. The game physics are far beyond any other game on the market (that's why the CPU performance is crucial in this game), and the graphics does the job to illustrate it.
Excellent for the previous GTA titles, the soundtrack remains quite impressive in GTA 4. The voice acting is superb (and the facial animation too) - like expected. The various radio stations are great and for all tastes. The talk-shows are funny and ironic, and the commercials are almost insane. The new TV addition is also an interesting thing to spend your game time with.
The city looks more authentic than ever. Everything contributes to the town atmosphere, the people, the cars, the police, the traffic conflicts, the fights, everything is designed so credible and with high respect for details. There is so much to do in this town.
Well, this is where the game looks more serious than other GTA Games. There are no more TheSims-like statistics, which some people (not me) may miss. The mobile phone is an excellent addition and keeps you in touch with every friend. The leisure activities are fun, but not as diversified as expected. Anyway, the virtual Internet is great, much fun and holds much irony against this century's virtual strange habits. The big question mark is why the planes are not available anymore? It is a terrible lack of gameplay from my point of view. Maybe a future add-on for this?
The action is quite good quality. The characters are very well individualized and memorable. The story is immersing, but some missions tend to repeat themselves and to become boring. San Andreas was much more interesting from this point of view. Unfortunately, the story is the only thing that keeps you connected to the game. You have the freedom to explore the city, but well, there is not much to do except for the police fights. The city looks greater than ever, but too bad there is not so much content as I expected. In the previous GTA games, there was plenty to do after finishing the main story.
I'm not a fan of online gaming so I was not tempted to test this feature yet.
GTA 4 is a big step forward for the series. The physical and graphic engines are quite brilliant, the town looks excellent. Most of the childish features of the past have been removed and that makes the game more serious, more mature (and for some people less fun). My only regrets are the lack of post-ending content and the lack of the airplanes. Anyway, R* did a great job with GTA 4 and, apart from some technical issues people complain about, I have to congratulate them for a great PC title.
