Gamespot finally reviews GTA IV for PC:
http://www.gamespot.com/pc/action/grand ... eview.html
... receiving a solid 9.0.

I'll still be waiting until ATI releases a new driver and Rockstar a patch for the game before attempting to download and install this on my laptop.

I tried the drivers in the link posted by Skyline_man, and ive noticed a 3-4fps increase in the most lagging situations.

Yep, that's the plan and I am fully aware of its size, which is why I am currently allocating resources to be able to do so. :P It's also why I'm waiting until everything is ironed out as much as possible as I don't end up with 14 gigs of useless data and have to download it again.

I missed Skyline_man's post with the link. After reading it, it's great to know ATI will release an updated driver tomorrow. I wasn't expecting it so soon. I just hope my laptop can handle the game.

I don't know why you are complaining so much.
I've got a AMD 5000+, 4GB RAM and a 512mb 8500 GT card. And I'm running it on medium with 40-45 fps. :-s
It isn't such a big resource hog...

When I first load up, it seems like the lighting seems screwed up in the apartment (beginning,) then when you go outside you can only see a few feet ahead of you, but you can see textures of fences and other things that would be on top of building roof's. If you alt+tab out then go back, those are all fixed, but a few things are missing... mainly the sky and map, along with other things such as water, smoke, etc...

Any ideas?
It looked fine on the 8600GT but ran like shiz due it the face it was DOA but my, uh... nvm. Long story short, I got screwed. I put the 7600GT in and it runs smooth as a baby's bum, but I have these errors... #-o


If you got these problems with your 7600, go to http://www.nzone.com/object/nzone_gtaiv_downloads.html and download the driver, it will be OK.

About the game... Umm I love it. It's just pure fun.

Because I don't have a desktop anymore, I have only a laptop. I gave up with always buying parts and upgrading my computer, so now I use a laptop for both school and gaming.

EDIT: So after some horrendous day, I finally installed GTA IV on my laptop and I must say I was disappointed. My laptop met the minimum requirements but even when I turned everything to the bare minimum, I was getting 20 fps and the game looked horrible, almost as bad as previous GTA games.

Now, I know my laptop has a mainstream videocard not meant for intense gaming but when Crysis runs and looks better at minimum settings, there's some cause for concern. Even Call of Duty: World at War, which is also running on low settings looks and runs better.

Either way, that was a complete waste of 14 gigs and I immediately uninstalled it, not like I don't have other game to enjoy. On a side note, the new Prince of Persia game is a blast to play!

Another patch?...Wow these guys are really trying to fix things :|

@2furio : LOL :lol: ....tbh the game has its reasons for being a resource hog. There is a huge amount of unneeded scenery being rendered, and almost every object is detailed beyond need...

Move left to right. Basically a Zigzag pattern. Then when you get hit, you'll get hit close to where you need to get hit and land into a cutscene showing Pegorino trying to take off. Then you finish your job.

Simply the best GTA so much. It's about damn time they got serious with multiplayer. This game is completely outstanding. GTA 4 is a sound game yes it has its flaws but for PC the modding is pretty cool. If you've already played it on other console you could see how you could play the game diversely.

Most laptops don't run games too well, mainly due to their onboard graphics cards, which are not dedicated like you see on a desktop. Unless you have a gaming laptop, which isn't the case.

I would say no, you can't run GTA IV on that laptop. Even if you do, it will be pretty slow with everything on minimum.
