Official PlayStation Magazine UK is the latest magazine to review Grand Theft Auto IV. The review includes a selection of screenshots, mostly the same as the OXM preview, but there are a couple of new ones as well. Like OXM, they awarded GTA IV a perfect 10 out of 10.

Below is a summary of new/interesting points in the article, some of which you may consider spoilers, although nothing major is revealed:
  • One of the reasons Niko goes to Liberty City is to track down the man who betrayed his old army unit.
  • Cars don't catch fire after a bit of damage any more.
  • There are several points at which you need to make life or death decisions between prominent characters.
  • Comedy clubs feature real comedians.
  • "Michelle" is the first girl that Niko hooks up with.
  • Dimitiri Rascalov is Mikhail Faustin's right hand man.
  • Another use of the phone include "calling a target to make him come to the window and into Niko's sniper sight."
  • There is a museum called the Libertonian museum, which features dinosaur fossils and exploding vases. Environments such as these have been created specifically for shootouts.
  • The name of every radio station is revealed:
  • Electro Choc (dance)
  • Fusion FM
  • IF99 - International Funk (funk)
  • Integrity 2.0 (speech, hosted by Lazlow)
  • Jazz Nation Radio 108.5 (jazz)
  • K109 The Studio (disco)
  • Liberty City Hardcore (punk/hardcore)
  • Liberty Rock Radio 97.8 (classic rock)
  • Massive B Soundsystem 96.9 (dance hall)
  • PLR - Public Liberty Radio (call-in speech)
  • Radio Broker (rock)
  • San Juan Sounds (latin)
  • The Beat 102.7 (contemporary hip-hop)
  • The Classics 104.1 (old-skool hip-hop)
  • The Journey (Ambient)
  • The Vibe 98.8 (soul)
  • Tuff Gong Radio (reggae/dub)
  • Vladivostok FM (eastern european)
  • WKTT - We Know The Truth (right wing talk radio)
Thanks to GTA4.net for the heads-up.

At least now we know a bit more about that "special someone"... Also, i keep hearing about dogs being in Liberty City...

PETA might have something to say about that...

EDIT:

You can download the scans here. Also, why is there 19 radio stations? I thought there was only 18.

It was kinda obvious that both official magazines were going to give GTA IV the "perfect" score. Building more hype and besides if one magazine gave a lower score then lolz. That's practically just saying the other console version is better.

[*]The Classics 104.1 (old-skool hip-hop)


I think these will be my favorite radio stations, and the public radio is always full of crazy people so I'm waiting for that. :) The magazine also says that if you let Niko by himself he will scratch his balls. :D

Integrity 2.0 (speech, hosted by Lazlow)


Awesome, Lazlow gets another chat station! :D He's one of my favourite GTA characters. I'll pick this mag up tomorrow. BTW, what demos come with the mag?

Bahaha... I love a bit of random pointless humour... they sure did make the realistic enough... its what men do when they just stand there.

Liberty Rock Radio 97.8 (classic rock) will be my favourite station. Its good that the cars won't be exploding!

Cool, 3 talk radio stations. I hope they are up to Chatterbox, VCPR, and KCHATS standards. The ones from SA weren't that great. Looks like the only real problem is the wait. ~sigh~

It's weird cuz 97.8 which is the classic rock is pretty much the same where I live here it's Z98 or 97.9
Just go to msn search and type in Z-98 you should get the website.

You posted in the wrong section, you should post it in GTA San Andreas-Gameplay&Help and make a new topic. Don't post in the GTA IV news section
