I appreciate the amount of content and value Rockstar puts in the title and I can bear with the sub-par storytelling, but it's very important that the core mechanics are fun and well executed.
I love the driving in GTA 4, I think they absolutely nailed it. The physics and driving mechanics are so much more realistic in GTA 4 than any other sandbox game I have ever played. It should be difficult to weave in and out of traffic while firing a machine gun out your window.
I would agree that the shooting mechanics were garbage, but driving is my favorite part about GTA 4.
