GTA 3 - http://faqsmedia.ign.com/faqs/image/mdean76_gta3map_20060102.jpg
GTA:VC - http://www.gouranga.com/images/gtavice/ViceCityMap.jpg
GTA:SA - http://www.thegtaplace.com/images/sanandreas/maps/sanandreas_map.jpg
GTA 4 - http://www.rockstargames.com/IV/#?page=recreation

As you can see GTA4 map is about 10-15% bigger then GTA3 map.

GTA4 map on the other hand is about 30% smaller then SA. Then again about 30% of SA map was a waste of space if you ask me.

VC has the smallest map of all the GTA games.

Nice links, but it's too soon to tell with GTAIV

We don't know any of the streets mapped out yet...

San andreas was huge and realistic... but about half of the Map was unused...

what're you talking about? there hasn't been any info about the size of IV's liberty city other than vague statements.

and vice city is bigger than III's liberty city, so you're wrong there as well.

topic fails.

I have my own opinion and you have no right to argue with that. - metalgear-solid, irony at it's best.

I played both 3 & VC & 3 took me longer to explore. In VC you go straight up & down. Make a left to bridge & then you on a really small island & then on 2nd part of map which again is just straight up & down.

3 has more turn,hills,tunnels & overall much better layout. VC was just a flat ass map.

I find it hard to judge, I have no idea on how long the roads will be of gta iv just from looking at the map layout parimeter.

exactly. You have no point of reference to determine the size.

According to a GTA information site, the area of San Andreas is four times larger than the size of Vice City, and five times the size of Liberty City. So therefore, Vice City is larger than Liberty City. But for the GTA IV Liberty City, I don't know if it's about the size of San Andreas, or bigger or smaller. I got a feeling it's the same size when I measured/compared the two maps.
