VIDEO REVIEW: Grand Theft Auto IV. Does it live up to the gargantuan levels of hype?


Well, GTA IV’s out today. It actually happened. They made a new Grand Theft Auto game, for Xbox 360 and PlayStation3, then put it in the shops. Good god, they actually went and did it. It’s here! Men all over the country are scouring branches of Currys for the few remaining unsold copies so they have something to do tonight.

So here’s a review of GTA IV in video form. Sorry it’s not very informative. And sorry it doesn’t show you very much of the game. And sorry about the attempted East European accent. But you do at least get to see Niko standing motionless beside a car for nearly four minutes. No other web site will be offering you that today.

In case you literally can’t stand to watch more than the first 15 seconds of that nonsense, here’s a brief summary – GTA IV is awesome. It delivers. It delivers what it promised and more. It’s huge, funny, great to look at and will satisfy your GTA urges for months to come. Nothing’s going to get close to this for years.
