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.

And tomorrow in this web, a complete bench - is a very good web , maybe the best today about PC gaming and 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.

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



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.

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


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

http://www.pcgameshardware.com/scree...5_Partikel.jpg


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

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


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

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


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

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


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.


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

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

Thereby street canyons or other big objects are always displayed at far distances.
