Fortunately, the first item is free but you can still completely overhaul Niko’s wardrobe if you wish. You can choose to go on the date or help Roman out. Objective: Find something to throw through the shop window.After the task is complete, Michelle will ring on the cell phone. You knock on the door and try to reason with the fellow but he’s having none of it.Take the opportunity to save your game with a power nap on the bed before heading out to meet with Roman; he’s marked on the mini-map at his cab depot, the Express Car Service. The hardware store is actually a front for an underground gambling ring.
We’ve put together a comprehensive guide to get you through every facet of Grand Theft Auto IV and every corner of Liberty City.
You’ll find a complete walk-through of the story mode, details on all friends, girlfriends, and random characters, solutions to side missions, multiplayer tips, and cheat codes.
You may have two or three story missions available at a time and can complete any one before moving to the next (although you will eventually complete them all).
This walk-through attempts to stick with a particular contact until the mission set is exhausted.
This Gamespot game guide to Grand Theft Auto IV features: This section provides walk-throughs for all of the single-player story missions.
Note that many of these missions can be completed in a different order than the one presented below.
Don’t toss the brick into the double doorway—it just bounces off (and you’ll probably have to go get another brick). You hand over the money and complete the mission, earning for your efforts. Get back into your car and drive the route to the laundromat. Push into the side of the van and attempt to ram it off of the road. You’re given a choice here: complete Vlad’s task and knock Ivan off of the building and let him fall to his death or save Ivan’s life and tell him to get out of Liberty City. If you do choose to save Ivan’s life, you can meet him later in the game for some side tasks. He wants to take drive but you’ll need to get behind the wheel because Little Jacob is just a tad under the influence. Objective: Take Jacob to the apartment block in Willis.
Toss the brick through the windows on the left side. Vlad has another non-paying customer—a guy who owns a laundromat on Masterson Street. Get out of the car and approach the marked entrance. It may not happen the first, second, or even third time. If the van makes a left or right turn, take the opportunity to ram straight into the side, which could topple the van and end the mission quickly. As you pursue across a catwalk, he’ll slip and hang precariously off the edge. You’re driving Jacob to a deal…but Jacob is a little paranoid.
If he’s not going to pay then, well, he’s going to have to pay. Walk over and pick up a brick from the debris pile and then return to the shop window. Steal one found on the right side and pursue the fleeing van, which is marked as red on your mini-map.
