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.

you will need atleast 4GB of ram, a quad core and a 2gb graphics card to max it out but you should play it smooth on high with shadows off and detail distance on low

Grbicdragan : Max = Ultra settings with full AA and Vsync on.


Nilmar : Try at Ultra, but don't hope u will get a stable FPS. remember turn off AA and Vsync.
