ummm....yes and no.

 

You can now play online but party mode is still very temperamental (for me altleast) and stats/ranks are not being recorded/updated.

Yeah, it has improved quite a bit, I'm able to connect straight away and can keep my connection throughout matches now (well 3/4 anyway), so it's getting there.

I played online for a bit on Saturday night but there weren't very many people. I was just in the party (?) mode i think. Seems pretty good from what I saw. I'm going to finish the story before I really get back into it. I'm taking my time - I don't want it to be over too quickly.

GTA IV is so dead online. I am hoping it's because either people cant tear themselves away from the single player yet or people are waiting for it to work better. It seems like it could be a great online game but there just isn't anyone playing, lucky to get 2 or 3 players in a death match.

Im usually the opposite from you, i will play online extensively before single player but not this time! I am hooked on single player and id imagine many other folk are too, only played a wee bit of multiplayer with friends and never went online on it on my own looking for a game. I suspect many people will do single player first purely because GTA used to be just a single player experience.

Im exactly the same. Burnout Paradise and GTA IV are the only games that also have online multiplayer that I have completed more than one mission/level of. :(

I seem to experience alot of lag, not in that people are stuttering while moving but in terms of health. For example one second i have full life and the next i am dead or i could be shooting at someone for ages and they shoot me a few times and i die. Can get very fustrating to the point where i quit the game in a state of rage.

Was really really getting annoyed by it all, right up until last night when it all started working again.

When it does work (which, hopefully, it will from now on) Multiplayer GTA4 is well worth investing some time in. I'm only starting out and would say I'm not all that good at the moment, but the games are fun and there are always people of your level around.

Glad it's all sorted though, I was about to give in and get the 360 version instead!
