From WikiGTA - The Complete Grand Theft Auto Walkthrough
The box art of Grand Theft Auto IV
continuous the trend of previous artwork on the cover of GTA
. Since Grand Theft Auto III
, the cover of the games have been decorated with several small panels (nine, in the case of GTA IV). As usual, a helicopter
is pictured in the top left corner of the cover. Next to this, we see a close up of Niko Bellic
, which is the first time a protagonist is featured on the cover of GTA. Top right, we see a motorcycle called 'NRG 900 RR
' and the subway of Liberty City
in the background. The three images in the middle of the cover, those of Lola
, a sniper
and a man with a cellphone and pistol
, are slightly altered versions of the artwork previously used for the dummy covers. In the three images at the bottom we see the cable car next to the Algonquin Bridge, Niko in the middle of a police chase and a gangster with sunglasses, holding a pistol. Note that the image bottom right has been mirrored: Rockstar Games
forgot to correct the license plate of the red car.
