-"Though the entire city is open from theoutset, you can't freely travel everywhere. If you head into a borough that you're not ready for, you'll instantly get five stars, sending all manner of police after you.(The fiction behind this is that you don't have natrualization papers and are considered a terrorist threat.)"
-Article from Playstation The Official Magazize
- Bikes, boats, and a helicopter are among the vehicles available to commandeer"
- "You can take cover behind objects during combat. Be careful, though, as shots can penetrate some walls. If you want to prioritize personal safety, you can still blind-fire from behind coveror lean out to target your enemy more accurataly"
- "As expected, the radio stations provide a vast range of music for all listening tastes, but the signature chatter of the radio talk show hosts is also incredibly funny. We hailed a cab, got in, but instead of skipping ahead to the destination, we decided to enjoy the ride and actually listen tothe high quality comedic dialouge."
- "Wearing a seatbelt doesn't appear to be an option as we we hit a wall a speed, saw Nico hurl through the windshield, and land about 50 feet down the street. Ouch."
-"Access the map and you can set waypoints to your destination. An onscreen minni-map then provides handy GPS directions to guide you to the location. Amusingly, more expensive cars have voice-driven GPS systems that politely inform you of the turns to make before 'dinging' at you destination"
-"This should'nt be funny. but a poor motorist staggered from his burning car, engulfed in flames. After a few seconds the flames on him subside. Seemingly safe, he stood up, only for the car to explode, propelling him many feet away. Just watching that dynamic event illustrated the fascinating depth of options and creativity at work in this uttrly convincing game world."
"Call the Cops"
"We nabbed a police car in the middle of a huge firefight, and discovered access tothe police computer. Like the internet cafes dotted around the city that let you get messages and cheack websites, this connected world extends to the police department. You can get missions from finding information on the computer, get details on criminals, upload photos, and more. A simple interface lets you navigate through th options, and bring up all manner of information. It made us wonder what we'd find just by exploring the city and trying out every vehicle."
"We got to try out several of the game's available weapons:
Fist: Classic street pugilism is pretty effective against random street thugs. By locking on to a target, you can aim punches at the head and body.
Knife: One slash across the face was enough to drop a bad guy.
Pistol: Fromthe lock-on targeting you can adjust the exact aim with the right trigger. Getting a head shot is s one-shot kill, but obviously requires a bit more skill.
Uzi: Never gets old. spraying bullets with this one-handed auto.
Assult rifle: The classic rife will get pedestrians running for cover if you walk around the streets with this in hand.
Sniper rifle: One mission involved us following a buddy(Paulie) to the docks where we climbed on the roof of a warehouseand zoomed in on enemies to pick them off. (Our first real indication of the veryicality of the game world, where tall building will peovide great oppertunities to throw bad guy to their deaths!)
Rocket launcher: Pesky police helicopters don't expect guys on the ground to weild rocket launchers. Send a rocket spiraling into the skyand down comes the chopper in a glowing orange ball of flame. When the chopper lands and explodes it can set off a cahin reaction of fireballs from other vehicals it may hit.
Molotov cocktails: For fun, we lobbed one under a car, which duly exoplode, and caused more explosions. We then dialed 911 on the cell phone and called the fire department. When they arrived, we stole the fire truck... and drove down the street shooting the water cannon perched on top at whoever looked like they needed a shower."
These are the side notes in the article and there is more info in th article. Full article coming soon.
