UK magazine GamesTM has the world's first hands on preview of GTA IV's new gameplay. There are many new screenshots in the article, as well as a fair amount of new information.
  • Times Square is called "Star Junction"
  • Few people were on the streets in the demo that GamesTM played (this could be attributed to early code)
  • Niko can use his cell phone to call for weapons - GamesTM say that Niko calls his associate Little Jacob, a Caribbean arms dealer, the conversation ends with Jacob telling Niko to meet him in an alleyway in Rotterdam Hill.
  • The player can call a taxi cab to go to a destination and view the ride in first-person or use trip-skip to speed the experience along
  • Niko received a call in the demo, which concerned a "shady lawyer" by the name of Goldberg, of Goldberg, Ligner & Shyster.
  • The "TW@" internet café from GTA3 is present but this time you can surf the web (which is "huge" and "very important," according to Rockstar)
  • One mission involves uploading your resume to a law firm, getting an interview, and killing a lawyer
  • Any crime committed will give you a wanted level
  • The star rating will create a visible search area on the radar, which, if escaped, will dissipate the wanted level
  • The police radio returns and you can hear the police talking about where you were last spotted as in previous games.
  • There is a clothing store called "Perseus" where suits can be purchased
  • The draw distance is "unreal"

This is certainly exciting, as never before have players been able to "surf the web" in a GTA game. The police also seem to be much more vigilant and realistic in the game, as in the missions GamesTM played, killing a single person warranted a 3-star wanted level on both occasions.

EDIT*
Also, I was reading up on some of the cell phone features:
Call a cab for transportation (In which you can view the ride in FIRST PERSON or tripskip option :P)
Call contacts for reasons as missions, or meeting up with them.
Take photos of your in-game stuff (The chaos you've caused :D)
Txt Msg people.

And if they make the game more interactive with weapons (like storing em in the trunk and in bags) then it will be awesome, I hate how if you were to hit R2 and boom u have a rocket launcher, hit R2 again then you have a chainsaw so unrealistic lol.

So is getting shot 10 times before you die. Do you want 1 shot kills too?

That sounds exactly like the way the Godfather does it. I think it's better than the previous GTAs, but we will see.

That internet cafe sounds interesting too. I can't wait for this game to come out!

DO you think that when you kill a random civillian, that youll never see the same person everyagian in the game.
