I got mine on the second island, actually, at the very southeastern tip there's a few choppers for the helitours of Liberty City.

Should those be there from the start? If so I want to grab one.

I'm not entirely sure. I zoomed down there the first time I saw the Helitour icon on my map. I took the tour, came back and promptly jacked the chopper

I haven't seen the icon yet....23% done. I'm actually onto the third island by now. I did go to the airport and no helicopters were there.

What do I have to play the game on monitor-wise to get it to look like those screenshots in the review? My HD TV looks no where that good. I always see screenshots of XBOX 360 games that look amazing then I come to find my experience looks nothing like that.

So, could the red community converse about GTA IV before this review went live? Or was there a boycott on that kind of discussion until the review went up?

None that I was aware of, I think most of us just wanted to hold out until what we already said was out there. As I recall I've seen a few red opinions out there on the wild streets of the GTA IV forum.

But 3 minutes in they always seem to smarten up and come in from every direction on me (most likely because the first one to find me, that I shoot, triggers the rest of them to know my exact location). Any tips?
The tunnel is a good start, but instead of going all the way down into the tunnel, jump up on the tracks. Apparently cops are afraid of trains.

It was cheesy as hell, and I've survived a LONG time fighting things out the proper way by holding up in buildings with good cover (though I already had the achievement... so I'm not sure how long I made it). Kinda wished I'd done it the "real" way to begin with really, but oh well.

I heard the 360 version is 4 Apples with honey and the PS3 version is 8 Oranges.

I love the game... I don't think it's best game ever material... but shit I am getting my $60

I can tell you this: the score employs the fibonacci sequence and must be input into a computer every 108 minutes

I just played a few minutes of it. I didn't find it that awesome. Except the graphics. They are awesome.

And requires the Large Hadron Collider to process the results.

You pansies! Man up like me and grab a helitour chopper, fly over Aldernay, and lead the ensuing Black Hawks and ground patrols all over Liberty City in pursuit. The helicopters can't catch you, the ground cops can't shoot you...just keep moving and you'll get it.

Nice write ups. I wish you had included more memorable moments from the game, such as the "shoot cabbie in the face, and got runover" story. That was great.

I've been nagging my friend to pick it up by telling him some of the memorable moments from my playing. Honestly, there are enough of them to make a fairly thick coffee table book of GTA IV stories.

Also the fact that my goofy niko wearing a russian hat is sitting in a cop car (or getting into a cop car after a mission for the cops) right in front of cops and they don't seem to care...? Granted it makes it easier, etc. but it's pretty ridiculous.

In other aspects, the detail they put into the internet browser i found HILARIOUS and awesome. I checked out all the sites.
