Good game, but I'd still rate GTA higher. Personally feel like GTA V will blow this one away in comparison.
I wouldn't be so sure. To be honest, GTA 4 (aka like GTA 8 really), wasn't that great or outstanding imo. It felt just like all the other GTAs, only with nothing really making it stand out. I got bored after a handful of hous and literally put it away for months before going back to play it. Never happened with the previous 5 GTAs I have played.
I expected a lot more from GTA 4 and was disappointed. So GTA 5 better be like the video game equivelant to getting a bj, because they didn't impress that much with GTA 4 imo.
Re: GTA has been dethroned - Sleeping Dogs is the champ now
I've never particularly enjoyed the GTA games. I really enjoyed True Crime and this is no exception. One of my favourite sandbox-style games in a genre that I don't generally enjoy. I'd definitely recommend it.
