I've never come close to losing a race, but I don't really go all out or take it slow. I just make sure I hit every corner and go as fast as I dare in between. The AI is normally really far behind.

I always use the Comet.

Are you guys talking about the final mission?


I got the game, but I dislike a few things like when I drive the car, it's kind of hard to control it & the graphics look rubbish sometimes. Still It's a good game anyways.


Did any one of you use the cheats? I used one. Some people said they affect the missions somehow, I'm unsure.

Driving does take a while to get used to. I thought I had got the hang of it, but I just got to a mission where you have to take a car and escape from people chasing you. High speeds + me driving = FAIL.

I haven't used cheats yet, and don't plan to (yet xD. I used them in previous GTA games, though. Anyway, I'm not sure about them effecting missions, but I did read somewhere that it affects the achievements in the 360 version. I have the PS3 version so I can't confirm this.

Well aren't you special.


I've also had some trouble with escaping the cops this time since my old sure fire trick of simply staying in a car and getting to a pay and spray doesn't work too well now since the cops can't see you. Are there any other ways to get your stars down without that when they are at 3 stars or over?

Press start, and set a way point for the opposit edge of the city. And try to find a long strecth of road you can just pelt it down to get out of the circle!! There's no particularly easy solution I'm afraid, but speed is good.if you can go in a straight line through d=fences and stuff that's even better as it makes it tough to follow you.

Thanks for the help. biggrin.gif

Also, I got past the racing mission that I was stuck on by not being too aggressive. Good advice.

I wasn't being cocky joesmith123, I was just pointing out that whatever I was doing was working. I'm not a skilled driver in GTA4, I've failed plenty of driving missions. The race missions just seemed to fit my style or something.

I've gotten away from four stars by swapping into another vehicle when they weren't looking, looking at the map and picking the direction with the least police, then driving away calmly. The easiest way I've found to lose eyesight with them is to run on foot through an alleyway or two. Luck is also very helpful.

I use stunt jumps to get away a lot as well. On three stars it isn't too hard to swim away.

^I was just kidding.

Watch out with the swimming with 3 stars, I tried that once and a police speedboat drove up to me and killed me.

You can even evade 5 stars pretty efficiently with just some good driving through alleyways. I remember I was on the GTA internet once and went to some child beauty pageant website, and suddenly a message came up on the screen that the FIB was watching and I had 5 stars. laugh.gif

^Isn't that about average for what all the others were with just doing the story missions? How long were you hoping it'd be?

No, I just meant I'm completely addicted to this game, and pretty obsessed with getting 100% completion. Seriously, 40 hours? Most games take like 10 these days.

^Oh ok, I mistakingly took the "what the fuck Rockstar" as a negative comment.

Without any spoilers being given about when can I get a friggin rocket launcher? I feel like I'm already over 2/3 through the story missions and I still can't get one.

^I was thinking that too, but I'm only 25% of the way through. I spend most of my time making things up as I go along.

Has anybody managed to crash into another helicopter and take it down? I just want to know its possible.

You get them on a few missions. Also, have you checked the gun shops? Little Jacob never keeps RPGs in stock. Oh yeah, and they're expensive as hell. $15000 for the launcher, $5000 per rocket.

^No, I haven't checked the gun stores in a while. I'll have to do that, although I haven't had a mission that gave me one yet. And damn they are really expensive, fortunately I have a little over $400,000. I guess I'll have to decide what I'd rather have, the rpg or $500,000 achievement.

I have accidentally hit another helicopter in the air, but it did not crash. I just bounced off of it and it went on its way.

Don't dip below $250K and you'll get the $500,000. The last mission is a massive payoff.

If you want to get all the weapons, then use some cheats, easy.

Yup I did. I got rocket launcher with the cheat I used, I pointed at the Helicopter and destroyed it. Very simple.
