Tips to Avoid Frustration with GTA IV

Ok, so you've been reading the hype and GTA is supposedly the best game of all time now. IGN, 1UP and Gamespot have given their highest marks possible. You've been waiting for this game for months…maybe even years. Then, you get home from the store, pop it in, and the excitement reaches climax as the opening scene sets the tone for what will be an awesome story filled with interesting and dynamic characters. Great. Everything is going well.

Then, you start to play the game. You hop in a car, and instantly speed headlong into a dump trunk and are ejected through the front windshield. Or, you embark on a mission to take out some thugs, only to find that you are gunned down by a bunch of posers. Hmm.

Or the get the cop car one and chase buddy all over gods green earth for Brucie. Perseverance and patients and a lot of cussing will get you through.

really pissed me off. There have been a few others, but that one wasn't fun at all. If I had only known that all you need to do was follow him to end of his chase pattern.
