Well the time has finally come, on tuesday GTA: IV will finally be released.

IGN has already given the game a 10 out of 10.

GTA series has always been one of my favs. just for the massive free roam world, there is so much to do even after you finish the missions. The included multiplayer should add to replay value also.

Just thought I would open up a discussion thread since I know most gamers will be picking it up.

With that being said I ordered my copy online a while back with overnight shipping so I should get it around noon on tuesday without having to fight the crowds.

i've played all of them except London: 1969 and LC Stories (own the first two games), and while they haven't exactly been at the top of my list, playing a free-roaming vigilante was always fun. glad they didnt screw it up like some other games do when there's been a long-running series.

1up: A+
Gamespot: 9.9 (I don't trust them, they gave COD4 a 10... It was good, not a 10)
Team Xbox: 10
IGN: 10 (they used team xbox's review)
Official Xbox Magazine: 10

I have it reserved.

No, it released simultaneously on PS3 and Xbox 360, PC will have to wait a bit though.

I've almost got it beaten. I shouldn't have ****ed around in the beginning of the game, it's looking like I'll end up at about 32-35 hours when I beat the game rather than the 30 that you get points for. (this isn't for 100%, that's supposed to take nearly 100 hours, I'm just trying to get the main story). I'm at like 24 hours now, I've done 4 jobs on alderney (last island) and I'm at 41% completion.

Rushing through games is never fun... imo...

In every game I play I rush through it once to get the achievements then go through it again to find anything I missed.

It's not rushing, I'm just not doing the side missions until the end. I just have to be efficient. I don't think I was. I think I screwed around playing pool and bowling too much.

I'm new school

Finally came today, and I'm so impressed. I haven't gotten the driving down yet. That's the hardest thing for me is to chase people and turning alot. I just spin out.

Yeah driving is super hard in this one. The best thing about driving in this one is the fact that if you slam head first into something you get tossed from the car...thought that was hillarious the first time i did it. Adds alot of realism to the game.

Driving takes awhile to learn. After awhile, your pro

Don't hit the breaks at all when turning the car, you will drive alot better. Like hit them before the corner then turn.

I hated the handling at first now I love it.

I break a little before the turn in most cars and hand brake mid way through the turn right before acceleration. For the sentinel specifically, I handbrake at full speed and slam into stuff to turn.
