Content review for this game:
Pertaining to the ESRB rating.

Intro - Missions - Blood/Intense violence - Strong language - Partial nudity/Strong sexual content - Use of drugs and alcohol - Closing comment

Content sum up: First of all, if you are here to see if Grand Theft Auto IV is at all appropriate for kids -17, it isn't in the least; if you wish to know why it isn't, you've come to the right place. And although I can't document everything, since this is such a huge, non-linear game, I will give a very good idea of its content, starting with a sum up of all its missions, listed under the category "Missions," above. If you don't feel like reading through all this, don't worry, as I have the standout content explained in the remaining categories.

My Stats:
Below is a list of just some of my stats after completing Grand Theft Auto IV's campaign; it'll give you an idea on how much you will be killing/stealing: After my 29:54:02 hours in Liberty City, I killed 772 enemies, (accidentally) ran over 158 pedestrians, fired 15291 bullets, and stole 171 cars. So, in other words, if you're thinking of getting this game, you really can't make the excuse that you could be careful and play without killing or stealing, or at least, too much; this isn't the case. There's simply no way to play Grand Theft Auto like a good guy; you have to have the intent to be bad, period.
