Have you been playing any multiplayer Julie? If you're just itching to get into the majority of the city if you go online the whole city opens up and lets you play around.
I've been trying to do that for a while now, and even though I keep getting killed, I must admit it's a lot of fun!

That's Algonquin, not Manhattan...totally different Wink

You're actually a good point in the game to get a big achievement if you have a 360. Get onto one of the walking paths of the bridges and cross the "Terror line" to get 6 stars, then hang back for about 5 minutes and you get like 40 or 50 gamer points.
I just started it. I can't even get into Manhattan yet!
PS3 here, so no achievements (yet). I'm workin on Half-Life 2 on the Orange Box. Oh, and if you haven't played Portal yet, KILL YOURSELF.

Or just play it.







Either way works.
I'm having a break and playing Lego Indiana Jones, then might have a go at all 5 Metal Gears.
Anyone still playing the game after finishing the story? I've been attempting some of the achievement points now that there's time. That 5 barrel roll achievement was damn near impossible. I spent hours on it before I got it.
Oh man... maybe I should have killed Derrick then. w/e, he was a douche neways.

If you kill Derrick instead of Francis you get to call Francis(the cop) and get your wanted level reduced I think, same thing as with Kiki.

I finished the game last night, really enjoyed it. Its nice you can keep playing even when the story is complete. Might try the game again and do things differently.

You get a load of cash for killing Dwayne, but if you spare him you can go out with him and get backup aswell when your friendship builds up.
Nothing, you just go to his funeral which ends in a shoot out and you have to drive the hearse to the graveyard without the coffin falling out...which is hilarious Happy

What happens when you kill Francis and Dwayne?
What happens when you kill Derrick? I killed X and Francis (hate crooked cops.... ironic, I know).
I killed X and got his crib and then Francis I think (the cop). Not to spoil anything, but the final mission is a split decision too.
Not yet.
Who did you kill?
Playboy X or Dwyane
Francis or Derrick?
(I killed X and derrick)
Anyone finish the game yet? I thought the final mission was a little weak, but otherwise the game was VERY entertaining.
GTA IV is a good way to relieve stress. Well, IMO anyway.

Nick a helicopter instead, they go waaaay  higher than the buildings then when you jump out you get the satisfaction of destroying the chopper while falling hundreds of feet.

Climbing to the top of a crane and sniping cops is fun, specially when i snipe the pilot in the cop copter

This game is so addicting.


I just stole a bus for the first time yesterday. I was going the "Snow Storm" mission and I wanted to ram into the 2 guys outside the hospital instead of sniping them. That bus RAVAGED them. Tough mission too.

I also like going on top of the Manhattan skysc**pers and jumping off. I gotta multiplayer that like I saw in that one video where 2 people would jump off the building into the blades of a helicopter. My girlfriend complains to me when i senselessly kill myself and others just to mess around, and yet she gets a kick out of picking up hookers....

...I better watch out about that...

single player is great, but I don't really like the multiplayer
The BBFC must have had a tough time with this game and there was the usual Daily Mail outcry.
PS3 has had an updated released to fix the bugs.
Saying that though I had my first play online last night and it crashed after I made my first kill. How rude.
I'm playing the 360 version and it's bloody amazing! No problems with the 360 version.
Got it for the 360 and so far its crazy amazing. I'm very impressed with the multiplayer, I've never had so much fun with a game. Although, don't think you're the only one with problems Mal. My disc cuts out occasionally too or it gets recognized as a DVD video disc and not a game. I think Rockstar Messed up in the manufacturing phase.
And Lego Indiana Jones, and FFXIII, and Star Wars - Force unleashed...and Killzone 2 if it ever gets released. Woo
The PS3 SE from Amazon was shipped - still not here yet though, although I've got so much work now, I'll take a week off just to play this game lol

and already can't wait for MGS4 this July as well!
Mine judders from time to time, but I'm not sending it back yet.

Why don't you just tek it back?

It's not going so well for me, got a new 40GB PS3 with GTA bundled and after an error that occured just before GTA loaded, the system no longer recognises discs. Sad

Going through the various options to try to fix it at the moment. Up until then I thought the game was pretty good.
PS3 special edition for me.
Only difference between the 360 and PS3 is the install time on ps3, and the DLC for the 360..which you have to pay for.
How do I get into a cab after hailing it?
I got the PS3 version. I haven't had too much of a chance to play it, but it's really fun so far. Graphics are decent, but you can forgive it just because of how massive and realistic the city is. I can't wait until I can drive into Jersey.
Is there a difference between the PS3 & the Xbox version?
Word to the wise---never drive drunk--it's close to impossible if you have any sort of distance you have to travel and you'll be closely scrutinized by the police after leaving a drinking establishment. Try it once just for the effect, but call a cab after that.

Of course, in real life you should never try it once for the effect--always call a cab no matter how far the distance. Wink
Shouldn't this be in the general forum? Wink
