I've found all the GTA games after 3 to be boring. There's just too much repetition, especially in Vice City & San Andreas.

True.. it's the same ol shooting killing jacking running slanging racing routine.. but not only do I want to experience that area, I want to see how Liberty City upgraded plus how the visual effects have enhanced compared to the previous ones!

Haven't hit a glitch yet on my Xbox copy. Great game, have put too many hours into it already and only about 30% of the way through.

haha you are right man.. some games I have a tendency to wait first and monitor any flaws other users have with the game.. but some games like this one.. just couldn't be waited. Damn.. they're making this game more and more realistic! Graphics galore.. I saw the PS3 version of GTA4 but the PC is slightly more detailed.. the visuals are one of the reasons why I come home as soon as I'm finished with work and play it.. so damn ADDICTING. I just downloaded a driver update and most of the glitches/bugs are noticeably gone. Whoever has NVIDIA graphic cards, update your driver here:

What graphics card do you have? I have the Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTX and I STILL had choppiness/bad fps before the update driver was installed. Right now I have absolutely NO choppiness. Very smooth now love this game even more!

i got a GeForce 7900 gtx atm. i was worried about buying gta4 when i heard about those bad stories of choppiness/bad fps but if the update driver fixed it for u, it might fix it for me

Cool, maybe I'll download that as well.. but so far everything is running smooth now! No lags/crashes. Honestly, this game was a disaster the first week it was released.

Found a comparo article at Gamespot!

http://www.gamespot.com/features/6202552/p-4.html

Here's the article:

Grand Theft Auto IV finally made it to the PC; unfortunately, it arrived with its fair share of performance problems. At times we experienced massive texture issues that caused the game to render nothing but water with our lonely car sitting on top of the waves. The game's lighting and shadowing also rendered incorrectly, creating nasty shadow bands over the buildings and streets. We didn't include images of the graphical artifacts because we didn't see them frequently enough warrant documenting. Generally GTAIV runs fine, and RockStar has released a patch since our testing that should clear up most of these visual oddities.


GTAIV is the one game we tested for this comparison that didn't let us max out the image-quality settings on the PC. At the moment, no video card has enough RAM to load up high-quality textures with high resolutions at maximum-quality settings. We could, however, load up medium textures with very high-quality rendering and mostly maxed-out sliders. Surprisingly, GTAIV does not support antialiasing in any form, which heavily detracts from the game because the city environment has a lot of hard edges, wires, and random foliage. Even with all the problems, GTAIV looks better on the PC by a wide margin. The PC's high resolution and draw-distance levels keep higher-quality textures, lighting, and transparency effects visible farther into the distance.

As you can see from the comparison, the textures look much more smoother compared to the other consoles, and this is only set at a "medium" detail setting!!!
