Grand Theft Auto IV for PC / Windows is an action game, which is the next installment of the best-selling and at the same time very controversial series, whose roots go back to 1997. This title was created in the tenth anniversary of the series, which traditionally tells stories of individual criminals, who start just as errand boys and guys who do the dirty work, but then climb higher and higher in the rank of the criminal world.

The game’s script was written by Dan Houser, who also worked on Canis Canem Edit (a.k.a. Bully), Manhunt and The Warriors, and of course put his hand to most of the previous GTA games. The plot revolves around a foreigner called Niko Bellic. Influenced by letters received from his cousin the protagonist decides to leave the Eastern Europe and comes to the United States. Unfortunately, the reality he faces is far from the one described in the e-mails. Roman had evidently lied about having two wives, a sizable collection of cars, and several-digit sum of money on his bank account. Moreover, it turns out that the unruly relative constantly gets into some new troubles, and his life is not so colorful.

The first jobs are given by Roman who slowly introduces the protagonist to the local criminal network. Of course, as you successively perform the missions, the list of potential employers increases. You can contact them both personally or via mobile phone (it is also used to launch the multiplayer mode). It is noteworthy that the story develops depending on your decisions and the order in which you do the missions. This allows the player to influence the current situation as well as creates a level of replayability.

While performing a specific mission you must travel across a maze of streets to reach the destination marked on the city map. You can cover that distance by walking, taking a famous yellow cab, or drive an acquired (read: stolen) vehicle, among which there are motorcycles, trucks, or cars. As always, while driving you can listen to a radio station of your choice playing licensed songs. One of the radio DJs is Lazlow, known from the previous installments of the series. When you reach the destination, you often have to deal with numerous opponents – to do this you can use the available weapons (including pistols and various types of rifles).

Grand Theft Auto IV for PC / Windows is set in Liberty City, which heavily resembles New York and even has buildings typical for that metropolis (including the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, and Empire State Building). The world was divided into five districts: Broker (Brooklyn), Algonquin (Manhattan), Dukes (Queens), Bohan (Bronx), and Alderney (New Jersey). The game’s environment is entirely urbanized. An extensive network of roads and the modern architecture, presented in a very realistic way, promote continuous exploration.

In order to prepare the richly detailed artwork the developers used RAGE technology (Rockstar Advanced Game Engine). Owing to this engine you can admire the amazing shading, reflections of light, smoke mixing with the air, and well-polished animations of characters, who walk around a hole in a sidewalk, carry shopping bags, or sit on benches. What is also impressive are sunrises and sunsets, which dramatically affect the appearance and color of the otherwise gray city.
