Playing as Niko Bellic you are an immigrant to the fictional Liberty City (based off of New York City). Your cousin lured you here with tales of riches and mansions. None of it is true. You must protect your cousin from loan sharks, mobsters, and the mafia. You are able to do many jobs for them and earn lots of money. The plot involves over 100 missions for you to complete, from street races to robbing banks.
The gameplay itself is amazing. The graphics are pretty good and the fact that it is a sandbox makes it even better. You can do what you want, when you want. There is no linear pattern that says that you have to do the missions in order. There are also many things to do in Liberty City. You can go eat at a resturant, or drive a speedboat. Jacking a car is what I spend most of my time doing. In this game, you can do almost anything.
The multiplayer function is pretty good and something of its own. There is not much to say besides it is something that you should check out for sure.
Overall, this is one of the best game I have ever played in my entire life. The gameplay is fantastic and the single player is one of the best I have played. The multiplayer is something to definately check out if you play this game. The graphics are pretty good for this game, especially the shots of the city from the air. If you are allowed to play this game, I would definately buy this game.
