4. 60 FPS is not confirmed.

Shocked? You shouldn't be. GTA 4 is an open world, go anywhere do anything game and because of that keeping a consistent Devil May Cry 4-style 60FPS is nigh on impossible. I'm told Rockstar North is aiming to make the game as smooth as possible, which is good enough for me. From what I've played of the game I suspect the final release will fluctuate around 30FPS, depending on what's going on. In the build I played the cutscenes have a degree of pop-up, too, but expect a more polished final product. I'm not sure about the character models though. As I've said before GTA 4 looks amazing when viewed as a whole, but less impressive on closer inspection of its parts.

3. Rockstar has got rid of all the fantasy vehicles from previous GTA games.

Everyone will have their own view on the rights and wrongs of this move, but at least it's consistent with Rockstar's move towards a more realistic GTA. So out go the aeroplanes, tanks, jetpacks and bicycles. Still in are motorbikes (they control exactly the same as cars except you can do a wheelie by pulling back on the left stick, meaning you can fire weapons while driving them), speed boats, helicopters and, as you'd expect, plenty of cars. There won't be any base-jumping with parachutes either, which we think is a crying shame.

I have loads of cheats and walkthroughs:


When Given The Option To Kill Either Playboy "X" Or Dwayne..Kill Playboy X , You Get His PentHouse :)

Head To An ATM Anywhere In The City, Create A Traffic Jam, Using Buses , Helicopters (Spawn Them)l and Cars(You Can Also Shoot A Gun Or Drop A Molotov Cocktail, This Will Frighten All Drivers Causing Them To Abandon Their Vehicles. Once You Have Created A Satisfactory Traffic Jam, Wait For Somebody To Retrieve Cash From The ATM, Then Obviously Kill Them... I have Recently Gained 250,000 Dollars From This.

If Your Car Gets Proper ****ed IE Refusing To Start Etc, Call 911 And Hang Up The Moment The Operator Answers... Your Car SHOULD Be As Good As New, And Can Be Repeated Many Times AS LONG AS YOUR VEHICLE DOESNT CATCH FIRE..THEN YOU ARE ****ED.

If You Get The Friendship Level Between Niko Bellic And Brucie Up To 70%, He Will Dispatch A Helicopter To Your Location, Allowing You To Do As You Wish.

Dwayne - - - 60% - - - Send A Car Full Of Gang Members Who Will Fight To The Death For You .

Little Jacob - - - 70% - - - Drive A Car To Your Location, Full Of Weapons That Are Available For Purchase.

Packie - - - 75% - - - Make You A Car Bomb That You Can Use Wherever, Whenever, And For Whatever Reason :)

Roman - - - 60% - - - Roman Will Dispatch A Taxi Free Of Charge To Your Location, Taking You Anywhere In The City.

-----------------------

When Out And About, You Will See Phone Numbers Written In Graffiti, Call Them As Niko Tends To Prank Them...

Grand Theft Auto 4 is the best gta ever..well of coarse it is..although san andreas has a bigger map n all, the graphics are in deed insane!!! And a great thing is, is that GTA IV still has there little tricks and glitches like everyone expect..and to me personally i love them..Rockstar has yet again made another awesome Grand Theft Auto!! Great Job!!!
