  • Right away when the game is opened, the player starts in Niko’s appartment, ready to explore the open world. There’s no menu the player is bothered with. GTA IV is a game which can be played in different ways. There’s no need to be concerned with the story mode and do missions if you don’t want to, it’s also possible to just steal cars, blow things up and create chaos on the streets. So the game is easily playable by people with a mental/cognitive impairment, although there’s a lot of violence and abusive language so the game can be considered traumatising by some people. The difficulty can’t be changed.

    The menu is very clear and easy to use. The font is clear but a little small. There isn’t much of a tutorial, only the first time you start the game you get instructions like how to open a car and drive away etc. But you can find the button layout in the menu. If you bought a hard copy of the game it also comes with a map of Liberty City which also includes the button layout. The button’s can’t be freely remapped, there are only 2 different layout’s to chose from. The sensitivity can be adjusted. The game is impossible to play with one hand on a regular controller since all the buttons are used for multiple actions. But if you have your own one handed controller it would be possible to play this game on your console using Titan One: http://game-accessibility.com/2015/10/22/titan-one/

    Visual impairment:
    Grand Theft Auto IV is possible to play being colourblind or with bad vision, but the player might have some trouble to distinguish things on the minimap. The contrast and brightness can be changed in the settings.

    Hearing impairment:
    There are subtitles when someone is talking in the game, except when it’s on the radio while driving a car. The subtitles are a bit small. The player might miss some information like police sirens when being followed, but nothing too drastic.
