Grand Theft Auto IV Review: Apparently GTA IV is pretty good. This is worth reading at length.
I won’t beat around the bush: Grand Theft Auto IV is the greatest game to come out for the Xbox 360 so far. I say that without reservation and without consideration for the planned downloadable content slated for later this year that will hopefully only add to its awesomeness. It is a true evolution for the critically and commercially successful GTA series, not just a “next-gen” polish job of the same old game. But maybe even more importantly, it’s a new high water mark for video-game storytelling in general. This may sound like hyperbole, but it is deserved: GTA IV signals a moment in video-game history where it can no longer be denied that the medium can be as significant of an entertainment vehicle as the best that movies or television have to offer. GTA IV is sublime.
