Quick off the mark once again, Eurogamer has posted the first full review of the PC version of GTA IV. It mostly ignores what we've already seen of GTA IV from the console versions and instead focuses on what you can expect from the new features, such as the replay editor, 32-player multiplayer and much more.

A short summary for you tl;dr's:

"...a genuinely ground-breaking blockbuster in videogame history. There were moments playing GTA IV that I thought back to my initial experiences with games, and realised exactly how far we've come. There's never been anything quite like GTA IV in the world. That there makes me genuinely happy to be a gamer."

Good read. The reviewer has a very good point with this:
QUOTE
One of the general criticisms of GTA IV is that it's abandoned the dumb-but-fun ground to the dizzily stooopid Saint's Row while chasing other priorities. If you consider that true, 32-player chaos totally puts that idiocy back in. Any time I played, I honestly didn't care whether I won or lost. By playing, I'd totally won.
This is very underappreciated and misunderstood among most people. It is one of GTA4's best selling points, if not the best.
