<h2>Why GTA IV is not-so-great #3: Less is more? </h2> <br> One of the criticisms levelled at the previous GTA game was that it was too sprawling and open-ended for its own good. The development team has attempted to rectify this in GTA IV by scaling back the size of the game world &#8212; but they’ve arguably gone too far in the wrong direction. As far as we can tell, there are no ambulance, fire brigade or pizza delivery side-missions in GTA IV, which have been popular mainstays since GTA III. Likewise, the flyable aeroplanes and rideable bicycles are nowhere to be found. Some of the role-playing elements in GTA: San Andreas &#8212; such as pumping iron to get your character into shape &#8212; have also been removed. While these omissions will not hugely affect your enjoyment of the game, you are left with a niggling feeling that something is missing.
