Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3)
Advantages: Good online, amazing single player, great car physics and graphics
Disadvantages: Can't do proper private matches
Well the GTA series is well known for its large free-roam areas, and generally the mindless violence that usually ensues.
This game is no different. Now however there are extremely realistic car driving physics, more weapons, incredible graphics, and a massive free roam area to drive in. Plus the addition of online multiplayer.
First off i'll start with the single player side.
There are ALOT of missions, im talking about 70 or so, it'll take you days to complete most likely, on the Xbox 360 / PS3 there is an achievement/trophy for beating the games story mode in under 30 hours. Unfortunately that timer counts up even as your just free roaming around, so its a good idea to not save after you've just driven around for 5 hours, unless you don't want to get the trophy. Despite the missions there is a fair amount you can do in GTAIV offline, mainly stealing cars/helicopters/boats and being a general pain in the butt for everyone else in the city.
The online side of things isn't much different, you are placed in the free-roam mode, but now there can be up to 11 other players in the game with you. Usually people will attack you on-sight rather than work together against the police, as many frequently do if they know each other. However occasionally you will find someone who won't open fire, and instead prefer that you get into their car and work as a second gun for them. These are common in vehicles such as helicopters, often you will get 2 or 3 players in one helicopter.
Aside from the free-roam, there are several game modes to enjoy, such as deathmatch, racing and more.
Really this game is as good as it gets, good online play, despite being constantly under fire, and an amazing single player experience.
My only gripe is that you can't have private online matches, or rather you can, but cops will be automatically turned off, with just you, your friends and the traffic/pedestrians in a game, it's not all that fun.
Summary: A great game, just what you expect from the series, but i prefer playing offline rather than online.
