What does the American Dream mean today?
For Niko Bellic, fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape his past.
For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity.
As they slip into debt and are dragged into a criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't.

no way man :/ sorry to hear that, only if you play on lowest settings..but why do you want 60 fps..you can play on medium-high and get decent fps (around 30-40) and human eye doesnt even see the difference from 30 to 60 :P

confused here…


Apparently I could easily run this game on my new laptop. I don't believe it as it isn't the best optimized game.


APU: AMD A10-4655M @2.3Ghz


GPU: AMD RADEON HD 8670M 2Gb


RAM: 8Gb

I'm not susprise, you have a good laptop for this game, and Radeon HD 8670M will be able to run this game at Medium settings.


But you'll face some FPS drops, hard to get stable FPS in this game … :D

I can't believe how bad this game's optimization is. I can't even hold 60 fps with the auto settings, which is basically tweaked medium with 21 draw distance and 31 detail distance. How can my PC not max the game out?

Is there a chance i can run GTA IV on my pc ?
I really cannot afford a new pc or a mass upgrade(that's what my pc needs) for my pc right now, so just tell me if i could get maybe 40-50 FPS at LOW settings?

friend, you cannot get 40 fps….. but at low settings you may be able to get playable fps.
Game developers are playing game with us.. they badly optimize to force us buy new hardware… This is just a business my friend. Happy Gaming

Man the optimization is way too poor… Perhaps it is the worst optimized game i ever seen… My system runs crysis 3 on 40+ fps on high settings… Even I can only manage 20 fps on low & a lot of sluttering in GTA IV…

Man, I think High Settings no aa at 1280x720 with that rig[Pentium G2030 ,GT 640 and 8gb ram] This game has very bad optimization, So, If you get low fps,Then Medium Settings no aa at 1280x720.
