I doubt anyone has been able to play it yet. I started my download right at 12 midnight. Got a few hours to go.

Most private trackers/Usenet groups can max out even FiOS connections. ;)

Can't personally wait to get my copy, hope the performance is decent, early reports indicate GTA IV is a very poor port when it comes to being efficient with hardware. :(

Nice explosions form a contrast to the flickering vegetation that reminds of Far Cry 2.

GTA 4 PC: High visibility range, but a texture from GTA 3.

GTA 4 PC: Doesn't this picture remind you of Remedy's Bullet-Time Shooter from 2001?

http://www.pcgameshardware.com/scree...ax_Payne_2.jpg


GTA 4 PC: With Post Processing Blur and Bloom effects are cast over the scene.

The engine delivers nice particle effects (smoke, shards, fire), but you should look to close at the pixeled shadows and branches in the background.

With the rocket launcher you can blow up several cars at once. The particle effects are worth seeing but are quite challenging for the graphics hardware

GTA 4 PC: Moving objects are furnished with extensive Motion Blur.

GTA 4 PC meets Stranglehold: Niko shoots himself through Chinatown. Several objects (like the hand rails) can be destroyed.

GTA 4 PC meets Need for Speed: Which part of the NfS series spontaneously comes to your mind if you see this picture? Wet streets, Motion Blur and railway tracks...

http://www.pcgameshardware.com/scree...nderground.jpg


GTA 4 PC: The shadow filtering possible on the PC is missing. Here almost nothing changed compared to the console version.

http://www.pcgameshardware.com/scree...0_Schatten.jpg


GTA 4 PC: An example for poor content: The textures are low detailed and of low resolution, the windows aren't transparent at all and the misplaced vegetation is frayed.

http://www.pcgameshardware.com/scree...1_Texturen.jpg


GTA 4 PC: Characters cast pixeled- - shadows on themselves, the number of polygons is acceptable. But especially the texture of Niko's jacket is low-res.

GTA 4 PC: The video options offer many possible settings that's good.
