Second GTA IV trailer hits!

Although Grand Theft Auto IV is less than four months from release as of this writing, the flow of information so far has been little more than a frustrating trickle. Will the action still be as crazy? Will accepting realism mean giving up crazy stunts? Is Niko Bellic really even the main character? Some of these questions are laid to rest, more or less, in the new trailer, which offers our first real look at the game in action. We're still not sure about a lot of the answers, but hey - we love the music, and Niko dangling off trucks and choppers looks badass.

By the time you've read this far, the internet has probably already exploded in a flurry of speculation, so we won't keep you. Once you've watched it, you can check out our detailed analysis (opens in new tab) of the trailer, but in the meantime, watch and enjoy:

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
