If you want to run Windows games on Mac OS X, its easiest to use a wrapper made to run it. You can make these yourself, or use ones other people have made. The Forums over at Portingteam.com is all about doing this, and I know there are some GTA4 wrappers over there so you can get an unofficial Mac port... no Windows needed.

most of the time when you try to do a work around for an os x client the gameplay is poor.

Yes but Crossover doesn't work with GTAIV. If you don't want to install windows your best bet is to do what doh123 suggested and find a wrapper.
