GamesRadar have been busy posting a few articles on their website regarding the trailer for Grand Theft Auto IV and the subsequent speculation and rumour spreading that has been going on in forums since then.

The first article of interest is about the level of realism Rockstar seem to be aiming for. In the article GR compare seven stills from the trailer with their real life counterparts. It's quite interesting especially if you don't know much about New York, and it will give you a good idea of what you can expect to see from New York replicated in the game.
The second article has GamesRadar's thoughts on 9 different rumours which they've spotted around the web. While many speculative things are also being posted and commented on in our own forums, it's interesting to read their take on them. Rumours include multiplayer, destructible buildings, additional cities, the main character and more. Let us know your own thoughts, opinions and speculation about GTA 4 in our own forum.

Awesome! Thanks for putting this up for us to know about it! I only knew a little about New York from True Crime and some movies. I always thought that the Chrysler building was the Empire State Building, and I was confused about other stuff. This has really helped me a lot!

Nice articles, thanks for posting them up Chris. Some rumours almost look look like a definite such as online multiplayer, more destructable environment and much more. The resemblance of the redesigned Liberty City and real life New York are great too and I gotta say, it looks really accurate!

The ped's and the vehicles look very realisic. But the only thing that im already alittle mad about is that the same car (looks like crystler 300C) passed on the same street 10 times just in different colors.

It did? :huh: I didn't notice but don't worry about it. It's just a beta and I'm sure by the final release R* will fix the bug. Everything else is super realistic though. Like that water. :o

Yeah it does, if your not familiar with English that much it means something that makes you scream/shout/yell I guess. Go to the first article that Chris posted up and find the Conney Island Rollercoaster part. Or never mind just click this.
:) The lighting and smoke effects are great too.

I'm hating the realism. That might be the downfall of GTA. Surely good graphics and physics are nice. But it's shouldn't be to realistic.

To look at it another way: are we looking at the first 'serious' GTA?

GTA is NOT suppossed to be serious. If everything would be serious driving a bike will become a bitch, stunting will be about impossible for most and lot's of fun will be lost. GTA is not suppossed to be exiting like a FPS, but fun.

People trafficking will become an in-game side mission

What does that mean? Trafficking?

Edit: ow, I get it I think. Taking illigal immegrants in a van and stuff to another country, right.
