Check it out, Kikizo's GTAIV review.
The Final Word: Yes, it's worth all the hype and more. I absolutely love this game, and I can't WAIT for the episodic updates. Just make sure you get both of those endings! And don't even think about using cheats until you've done it properly.
Thanks for the email. No need to worry about people circumventing the leaderboards on the R* Social Club, we are taking care of it.
[Grand Theft Auto IV is] in production and in trucks en route to retailers.
This is my first PS3 theme and it replaces the xmb icons on your PS3 with screenshot icons from the game. It also changes the background.
Any icons not changed are due to the PS3 theme builder made by Sony not allowing users to change them.

You can now pre-register for the Rockstar Social Club using your Xbox Live gamertag and/or PlayStation Network ID. The Social Club will fully open once GTA IV is released, and will provide all kinds of statistics on your game progress. There are even prizes for those who complete the game the fastest. See our original news story for all the details.
The Rockstar Social Club website now displays an image saying, “Pre-Registration Begins 4.17.08,” two days later than what we were told on March 27 (registration was officially set to start on April 15). We are unaware of exactly what caused the sudden, short delay, but we’ll keep you posted!

In terms of the time it takes to finish, how does it compare with others in the series?
That's a hard question to answer really. I finished the story mode in 24 hours, without skipping cut scenes, but I literally blitzed through and hardly took on any side missions. If I was to play it again (which I will be, right on launch day!) I'd say to wrap up the story will take at least 40 hours at a normal pace, plus another – say, 25? – to wrap up the remainder of the missions. In truth though, you could be paving the streets of Liberty City in a year's time and still not have discovered everything. Plus, if you're a 360 owner, there's the promise of downloadable content to come...My advice is: just kick back, take your time and breathe every fresh sight and sound in, don't simply rush through just to finish it before your mates. I wish I'd had that option!
