I've waited for this game for over a year. Having preordered it from gamestop, I was excited about the special edition of the game. The special edition came with the game, which Ill review in a second, a big lock box, a dufflebag, keychain, soundtrack sampler cd, and artbook. The lockbox is very well made and huge. The bag is medium size, very well made though too. The keychain is very nice and heavy duty. The soundtrack sampler cd is the only bad thing of the set, as its random tracks from the game. The artbook is very well put together too.
As far as the game though, this is the most expansive and the amout of detail they have in this game is massive. The effects and detail to liberty city makes it really feel like you are in new york. The story line is very captivating too. You are Niko Bellic, an immigrant looking to make his way in Liberty City with the help of his cousin Roman. You are soon sucked into the life of crime when you get there though, and the world opens up for you. Though the game is violent, anyone that enjoys a good crime story should try this out. The amount of cars and missions is huge in this one too, and you can even explore online on this game as well with computers. If you are a fan, you will not be disappointed, and if you are new to the series this is is a great one to try out. Highly recommended.
