Excellent game :)

I installed this game (absolutely no errors, no warnings, no crc errors etc). It got installed like a piece of cake. I just entered the serial key and played the game.

In a pirated game, you can't update game patches, no multi player, no social activities, no video upload and so on. So, you will miss many fixes and that sucks. Today when I tried this real version, I could see many improvements in performance and quality vice too.

Around 10 years back, I bought (game chip) mario game for 150 rupees and now I bought this licensed GTA IV for 450. I think this is dead cheap when compared to that unlicensed mario chip 10 years back .

Things inside this pack :
1. Two game DVDs.
2. A game guide.
3. Survival guide to liberty city.
4. A big poster (lolly pop girl in-front and GTA IV map in the back)

If you really love this game and if you want to play with latest patches, you need to get this one for 374 (no extra charge) :)

Tips for better performance.

Hi All,

I have been playing this game for quite a while now few things i have noticed why the game lags performance and some tips to boost the performance.

My current laptop config is

Sony vaio:- with i3 2nd gen @ 2.26 GHz*1 (Overclocked @ 2.46 GHz)

Graphics Accelerator:- ATI Mobility Radeon??? HD 5145 Graphics

Ram 6 GB DDR3 Tanscend @ 1066 MHz(Planning to push further with 8 gigs :D )

Windows 7 ULTIMATE SP1

HD display @720 p and 1080 p via HDMI on Bravia

Now here is the crack for the lag:-

Lets first clear the basics

1) While playing the game disable ANITVIRUS as it is always running in the background and consuming memory.
2) Run disk defragmentaion specially where the game is installed.
3) Stop unneeded background services and process from task manager.
4) Before playing the game set up the computer for best performance (Disable all the fancy stuff and themes)
5) Increase the page memory.
6) Clear temp files.
7) Remove memory bugging wallpaper( Set as basic 'PLAIN wallpaper' )
8) Download an application "Game Booster" this WORKS!! and is awesome + its Free on the internet.
9) Update display drivers.
10) Update RAM(check if your machine allows you to do that with reference to processor and motherboard.)
11) Play the game on external power.
12) Create an image of DVD and mount it rather playing it on the drive.

Now, let's move to Advanced level computer tuning.
NOTE:- If you dont know about computer Abcd do not try the below steps, try at your risk.

1) Overclocking :- Overclocking is best done in the computer???s BIOS (Basic Input/Output System or Binary Integrated Operating System). There are also some motherboards that let you do a basic increase in power by setting a jumper, but this is dangerous and you have no real stability control. There are some software programs available which allow you to overclock inside the operating system, but the best results are achieved by changing BIOS settings. Usually you can get into your BIOS by pressing DEL (some systems may use F2, F10, or Ctrl-Enter) as soon as your computer begins the POST (Power On Self Test - when it shows the RAM size, processor speed, etc.). Here, you can change your FSB (front side bus), memory timings, and your CPU multiplier (also referred to as CPU Clock Ratio)

2) Rockstar games has provided fixe for the memory leak issues in GTA IV. To use them create a notepad document called commandline.txt in your GTA IV folder and include one of the following commands

-memrestrict 188743680 LOW TEXTURES (256M Video Cards)
-memrestrict 209715200
-memrestrict 230686720
-memrestrict 262144000 MED TEXTURES (512M Video Cards)
-memrestrict 293601280
-memrestrict 314572800
-memrestrict 629145600 HIGH TEXTURES (1Gig+ Video Cards)
-memrestrict 650117120
-memrestrict 681574400

Start with the lowest for your current texture settings and figure out what works best.

3) Play around with the settings, but when running benchmarks take note of CPU usage because GTA IV is a highly CPU intensive game, do anything you can to reduce CPU usage if you wish to increase performance.

With above and few more changes i have been playing this game and it works well.
There is no performance lag.

But make sure WHEN OVECLOCKING GRAPHIC CARD/RAM/PROCESSOR get a cooloing pad(for laptop) as it produces heat and when i say heat i mean "HEAT"(gets pretty hot)

Overall, GTA 4 is a nice game completed gta4 EFLC an year back.
now got time to play again and this time its plain gta4 @ 350-400 Rs (Cheap)
All thanks to flipkart.

Detail description about this game

I'm giving a detailed description for those who still missed this deal.

What I got?

- Well packed DVD set from flipkart. You will get 2 DVDs, one big MAP of Liberty City (On back side of that a lolypop girl poster), On Liberty guide book and a Survival Guide to Liberty City.

What system I have?

- I'm playing it in my Dell Laptop.
Core i5 2nd gen
4gb RAM
Nvidia GT 525M
Win 7 64bit

Running with lags as this graphics card is not enough.

How to install this game?

-Insert Disc 1 - First install Rockstar Social club then the game (Automatic) - Insert Dics 2 in the middle of installation - It will take almost 45mins to install the game - After completing game installation again it will ask for disc 1 for installing softwares and directx - You need internet connection to check whether the game release dae is past or not - then with product key activate the game.

Graphics Issue?

- Make sure you download the latest ATI or Nvidia driver in order to play the game. Also not to forget to download the patch for this game from rockstar website. Latest version in 1.0.7 Isntall it then enjoy the game

About Saving the game?

- Yes you can save it offline also. No need of internet. When window live prompt comes, click to create new account then scroll down to the texts and click "Local Profile". Then you will be able to save it in offline.

Final verdict

Awesome game with real life effects. Make sure you have enough resources to run this game as it is a memory hungry game. Flipkart deal is awesome.

Worst game I bought from flipkart

The game hangs on even good configuration computer. I have an I7 Quad-core computer with 8 GB RAM and a dedicated 1GB graphic card. But still it hangs often and often the game will be slow responsive when you continually play the game. At the game properties it says that it only consumes 350MB of my dedicated graphic card but still it is very slow. So buyers beware. Do google about GTA 4 slowness and then buy it. Hope it helps.

The game's graphics are quite impressive for a 2008 game, but one of the first noticeable differences from older GTA titles is the slower gameplay all-round. Can get quite irritating at times.
The story line isn't as immersive as older titles either. Being a huge fan of San Andreas, this story line and the characters failed to involve me in the game. GTA: San Andreas developed a sense of attachment and loyalty to the character and his friends, and a love for the city. GTA IV has lacked in all these respects.
GTA IV is only an improvement over older titles due to the time that has passed since previous releases and the general improvement in video games in those five years. But it isn't a truly better game than previous GTA titles. Good to play once, but wouldn't leave you sad once you finish it.

Awesome dialogue! great music! crazy story!

I've been a grand theft auto veteran ever since the 2d gta 1. i've gone through gta 3, vice city and san andreas.
although the world in gta 4 is slightly smaller than in san andreas, this is a hugely entertaining game. every console / gaming pc owner should know what its like to play a grand theft auto game.

GTA4 brings with it a life like liberty city with extreme , vivid detail. the citizens have names, and every face is different. random characters on the street speak out the funniest monologues.

the voice acting on niko bellic is top notch. you will burst out laughing when he's talking to other characters like brucie or manny.

the multiplayer component is hugely entertaining. but i prefer long drives throughout liberty city.

PS: you can take a cab, play pool/bowling/darts, get drunk, watch tv, go online and get dates, be a cop, a car stealer, a taxi driver and loads of other stuff i havent yet discovered.

do not flinch , gta4 is an amazing experience. even after four years. its the best game there is.

A whole lot better than San Andreas

This is a whole lot better than SA. Here's why:
1) No Shitty rap forced down your throat.
2) Gameplay Mechanics and Overall quality of missions is just better.
4) Protagonist is a badass ex mercenary as opposed to some butthurt black guy whose mom and brother got shot
5) HD graphics, Accurate damage modelling, Ragdoll Physics, greatly applied cover system which minimizes health loss if you're careful enough, weather actually has an effect on dynamics (reduces friction on roads - a pain in the neck)
6) A HUGE variety of in-game music
7) redesigned wanted system
9) Mobile phone plays a pivotal role

1) As always, driving is a pain in the neck - cars handle as if the roads are greased up
2) Mayhem Causing is greatly discouraged
3) A lot less cheats than previous GTAs

And if you guys want san andreas so badly, there's a total conversion mod called GTA IV San Andreas: Basically a better version of san andreas.

Great Game! Not as fun as San andreas but graphics are awesome!

About service, it took three days to deliver the package. so perfectly happy about it. the game box conatains the map of liberty city and some booklets like survival guide etc.

About game- In graphics, the game wins the first prize. I have Geforce GT 610 with 2 GB DDR 3 with Intel Core i3 with 4GB DDR3 RAM so it runs smooth in High details.

The only thing I didn't like about this game is that it takes 15 gb of our hdd space still we have to save our games online. Why? Not everyone is inerested in playing online right? and because of this I give 4 out of 5 stars.

Excellent graphics,
Good cars,
Realistic damages,
Millions of civilians,
Real feel of living in a city,
New things like cellphone and in-game internet, tv etc,
Low price.

Requires internet connection,
It takes almost 1 or 2 hours to install everything and be done with all processes.
Everytime we have to log in to save our progress. It's total stupid.
city is not as beautiful as San andreas,
Fun factors are less compared to San andreas,
VOice actors have done good job but not as attractive as San ANdreas.
There are new things to explore, the city is same everywhere.
It's fun when you play once, you wouldn't play it twice. You won't remember the missions.

But otherwise, Go for it. It's absolutely worth 374 bucks.
