Shortlist game for the GAME Award of 2008
In 1997 Scottish games developer DMA Design released the first Grand Theft Auto on PC and PlayStation. A top-down, free-roaming crime-‘em up, GTA gained controversy and acclaim in equal amounts for its violent gangster gameplay, car-jacking focus and superbly risqué soundtrack.
A decade later, the now renamed Rockstar Games is responsible for changing the face of gaming. PS2 Grand Theft Auto III gave gamers a fully 3D playground in which to explore, play, and affect utter mayhem, and each new GTA on PS2, Xbox and PSP has upped the size, scale, style and sheer attitude, cementing the series as one of the iconic gaming brands of its time.
Now Rockstar return with the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto IV on PC. Experience a new story, fresh missions and gaze upon Liberty City in high definition glory in Grand Theft Auto IV, all set to be one of the year’s biggest and best releases.
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 Grand Theft Auto IV's Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity.
As they slip into debt and are dragged into a criminal underworld by Grand Theft Auto IV's 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.
Welcome back to Liberty City. Welcome to Grand Theft Auto IV .
With Duke Nukem Forever finally getting a 6th May release date, it's only fitting that another long-awaited game should be touching down around the same time. A leaked trailer for the amazing LA Noire has suggested Rockstar's latest will be showing up in stores around 17th May.
According to Eurogamer, it's not clear at the moment whether this date refers to a global launch or is purely when Americans can expect to play the game. Either way, it's hard to see a European launch tagging a long too far behind it.
LA Noire was first unveiled way back in 2005, so we've waited long enough to get our hands on this intriguing game. Set in the 1940s, Rockstar's game sees you signing up with the Los Angeles Police Department and tackling crimes, via shooting and racing around in cars, of course, but also through interrogating suspects - a system that depends upon the game's amazing motion-capture that records every nuance of an actor's performance and processes it into the game.
With a huge script and a brilliant setting, this should be just the ticket for anyone who's finished Red Dead Redemption and is itching for a bit more Rockstar brilliance. LA Noire will be available for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
From GTA to Red Dead Redemption and now L.A. Noire, super-publisher Rockstar has specialised in games so cinematic that they should come with popcorn. Now it seems that the company might be eyeing a future on the big screen.
Details have surfaced that the company has registered a trademark for a spin-off called Rockstar Films, and also owns two internet domains under the same title.
The Rockstar Films trademark covers re-recorded video discs and other pre-recorded digital and electronic media in the field of live action programs, motion pictures, or animation featuring entertainment, namely, action, adventure, dramatic, comedic, children's and documentary themes./p>
It has long been suggested that the publisher would make a move into movies, but in 2008 Rockstar quashed rumours that it was preparing a Grand Theft Auto movie. However, the publisher has dabbled in Hollywood, hiring director John Hillcoat (The Road) to put together a short film called The Man from Blackwater using footage from Red Dead Redemption.
