Liberty City vs. New York

So I know I promised a review of GTA IV, but I haven't finished it yet or even done any multiplayer, though I'm probably two thirds through the main plot guessing from the completion percentage... all I can say is that if you hated the other GTA games (for whatever reason) then you'll hate this one 100x more since it's like all the other ones only squared or times eleventy million or something. I, on the other hand, really enjoyed the other GTA's so I really like it... though I will have a few nits to pick at a future date.

Regardless, Gawker (sheepish= yes, sometimes I read Gawker /sheepish) pointed me to flickr user Mathew Johnston's project comparing the actual pictures of New York City to Liberty City scenes. Pretty cool. Here's a couple:
