So I'm sure you've all seen the final trailer. Here's a analysis video of the trailer, breaking it down and showing some of the new features to the series in action:

I'm copying this from another forum, but this is the first official GTA4 review I've seen. It comes from Official Xbox Magazine UK, so obviously some of this info is specific to the 360 version. Apparently the whole review is 10 pages long, but they copied in the summary at the end of the review (they usually give + and -'s for various aspects of the game):



+ Amazingly realistic world
+ Stunning action set-pieces
+ Genuinely engrossing storyline
+ Hugely entertaining multiplayer
+ Vast in every respect

Utterly stunning in every respect: 10/10

A few bits of new (to me) info:

Your stats will be uploaded to the "Rockstar Games Social Club" website, so everyone can check out your achievements. They say that they'll be competitions held (the first being who can get 100% completion of the game).

Soundtrack includes Elton John, Stevie Nicks, Smashing Pumpkins and Lazlow. Queen's One Vision is also in there.

Lots of celebrity voice talent - and the celebrities themselves. Apparently there's a very familiar name on the streets of Alonquin...

They're not allowed to reveal the collectibles, but apparently they're a nod to Crackdown's orbs, but "far more satisfying" to collect.

360-exclusive DLC availiable in August. They'll probably be extra storylines in the game. You'll have to pay for them, but they'll apparently be at least ten hours long.

Hijacking cars isn't easy as you've got to hotwire them. Looks for cars with their keys still in, like people filling up at petrol stations or unloading at the airport.

You'll find carjacking much easier with a gun in your hand, as Nico will just order them out at gunpoint. However, sometimes they will try to nail it and escape.

Because I have massive amounts of accumulated PTO, I may have to work something out as well as a treat to myself....

If you haven't seen it, IGN (one of the most respected video game review sites, I realize that sounds like a double negative ) gave GTA4 a perfect 10/10 (something they haven't done for almost a decade).

Sounds pretty sweet. Can't believe Kat Williams is in the game.

did you get any cool promotional swag along with the game?


ps: I hear the PS3 version is slightly better looking than the Xbox 360 version
