Grand Theft Auto IV: PSM3 Hands-on Preview

- The first hands-on minutes of the game are enough to understand how the game is gonna kick ass
- The city have a lot of streets of any genre
- You cannot enter in all the buildings, but you can interact with most of them
- No property gestion, neither gang gestion nor trade gestion
- Instead of that, we'll have bowling, dart games, drinking spree in pub, strip-club and night club
- The core of GTA IV is the human relationship
- Sometimes, your contacts may call you during hard mission to ask you a service, you choose between the mission or your contact.
- If you do sh*t with your contact, you may assume the consequences
- The impression of a breathing city is, again, absolutely stunning
- The density of the population (peds) change between the place/borough you are
- If you walk around the street with a gun in your hand, peds who have a cellphone can call the police
- While we tried to high-jack a car, the scared bastard go so fast that he hit 2 cars
- During the first mission, we tried to high jack a car without gun, then the driver beat up niko, who finished at the hospital
- Peds react in a very realistic way, like they lead their own life
- We played seven missions during four hours, the devs tell us that it's a very very small portion of the game
- 15 minutes necessary to go through 2/3 of manhattan with a boat, and 10 minutes by car to do brooklyn/central park.
- The cars can be destroyed very realisticly, every parts can fold, it's stunning !
- More variety of missions, and hard
- The game is done, clipping has gone, and the game is super smooth.
- Oublier tous les gta like qui tente de concurencer GTA IV qui met une gilfe!
- Forget about every other gta-like that tried to compete GTA IV, that game kick ass


- If you press the jump bouton, niko can climb everywhere, you can also move straft left or right while you're hung at something (assassin's creed style).
- There is swimming club.
- If you have 5 stars, it's very difficult to escape from the cops, they are everywhere and they don't joke with you and this time, they are really clever.
- While boast trip, the sfx are awsome, you can hear the sound of the waves that beat the cockle of the boat, wonderful !
- With powerful weapons, you can shoot through the walls.
- The weather : we've seen fog, rain, sun, clouds, variety of colours depend of what time it is, soo beautiful.
- This time around, for the first time in a gta, if you die you go to the hospital and you paye $100, but you keep all of your weapons.
- But if we go to jail, we must pay a lot more and we no more have our weapons .
- While you are drunk, it's very difficult to control niko, the drunk sensation is perfectly done.
- When we steal a car to a ped, he can hung his car and they are gliding on the road (like a sh*t lol).
- When we make a crime, choppers arrive with searchlights to follow you through the city.
- We've seen some strip tease in a prositute club, by paying the chicks.
- after a big crash on the freeway, niko get ejected through the window and he lost some health.
- Depend on wich bourogh you are, peds speak different language if they are italian, chinese, or bronx dude.
- Healthkits are available only in the buildings.
- Grenades and cocktail molotov's sfx and effects are really stunning!

Gestion means to controll something, that means you cannot controll gangs in GTA IV.

Gestion = Management (the way to manage things) more precisely
