It's been a while since I've gotten the inclination to crunch out a guide, but 
that feeling strikes again. It's possible that GTAIV will kill my drive to 
write a guide for a long time, but we'll see how things go.

This guide was originally going to be a joint project with video walkthroughs 
for tougher missions and locations of the Flying Rats and Unique Stunt Jumps, 
but I'm still unclear on Take Two's policy with uploading gameplay videos. If 
this issue happens to be resolved at any point, I will upload all the freakin' 
videos that I got ready as supplements to the guide.

As for the PayPal donation plug... It's just a simple request. If you like what 
I've presented here, and are feeling generous, I welcome any donations. 

Also, please email me if you have any concerns with the guide, find any 
mistakes (spelling, grammatical, or otherwise), or have a great strategy that 
you feel works better / just as good / faster / more interesting than mine.

The way I wrote this walkthrough was in a more linear fashion than the game 
actually requires you to play through. I decided to do it this way simply 
because this is what I would be looking for in a guide if I needed to find one 
myself.

That being said, you can actually just skip around to whatever mission you want 
to by reading the contents. There are a few missions I'll have written 
strategies for that will assume that you've done some things before the mission,
but for the most part, you can use the walkthrough as a case-by-case mission 
reference as well.

Each mission description has three parts: The basics, an overview of the 
different stages of the mission, and a detailed walkthrough. Later in the guide,
if it's ever possible to upload gameplay videos without fear of copyright 
issues, there will be YouTube links as well.

| 1. THE COUSINS BELLIC                                                [M001] |
'============================================================================='

Chain:   Roman
Prereq:  Start the game!
Starts:  East Hook, by the ship
Ends:    Hove Beach, Roman's Place
Rewards: Safe House (Roman's Place)
         $25
         Off The Boat - 5G (X360 Achievement)
Unlocks: It's Your Call

Overview:

1. Follow the GPS to Roman's Place while learning about the game's controls 
   (and well endowed women). Just don't blow the car up or kill Roman!

This intro mission starts as soon as the opening cutscenes end. Your cousin 
Roman is a bit too much over the line to drive, and so Niko takes the wheel.
There are a lot of things going on at first (drunken chatter, the game's 
control tutorial), but you can take some time while you're not on the roads to 
practice driving. When you're ready, follow the yellow GPS line on the mini-map 
(in the bottom left corner) to reach Roman's Place.

When you get inside, you'll be introduced to the game's saving and auto-save 
features. Take a moment to peruse the menus and familiarize yourself with 
everything. When you exit the house, you'll also be taught about the game's 
"garage" system (similar to the garage system for saving cars in the previous 
GTA games, minus the actual garages) and how to heal by eating food from a 
stand.

And guess what? A lot of the game has already opened up to you, so go ahead and 
run around if you want. Roman can wait, and there's plenty to do around the 
city.

If you're playing the XBox360 version of the game, you'll have gotten the "Off 
The Boat" Achievement (5G).

When you are ready though, head to the R icon on the map. You can either sweat 
it out on foot, or just nab a car and head over. Look around first if you 
decide to jack a car though, since there are sometimes police milling around. 
This will be good practice for later.


.=============================================================================.
| 2. IT'S YOUR CALL                                                    [M002] |
'============================================================================='

Chain:   Roman
Prereq:  The Cousins Bellic
Starts:  Hove Beach, Cab Office
Ends:    Hove Beach, Cab Office
Rewards: Cell Phone
         Roman as a cell phone contact
         $30
Unlocks: Brian (Friend)
         Three's a Crowd

Overview:

1. Drive Roman to the hardware store.

2. Roman gives you a cell phone and heads in. After a while, loan sharks pull 
   up and start to head into the building (don't attack or scare them!). Use
   your phone to call Roman before they get into the building.

3. They begin to chase you. Quickly follow the GPS back to the Cab office to 
   lose them.

The mission begins similar to the first one; you're in Roman's taxi driving him 
somewhere. This time, it's to a hardware store, but this mission has nothing to 
do with tools. Instead, Roman is gambling and trying to make up some lost money.
So just head to the hardware store.

When you arrive, you can just park in the spot out front, but to make things 
easier later on, head PAST the parking spot, turn around, and park facing the 
other way (assuming you were following the GPS). Roman gives you his old cell 
phone before heading inside.

As you're waiting, use the right analog stick to look around. Roman will call 
you after a bit, and you can answer if you'd like. Soon after that, the 
Albanian loan sharks will pull up on the other side of the street (Niko will 
spot them, even if you don't, and drop an audio clue). At this point, press up 
on the d-pad to pull up the cell phone menu. Press A to enter the phone book 
and call Roman before the loan sharks enter the building (or else the mission 
will end). 

Roman books it out of the building and hops in the car. If you parked facing 
the other way like I mentioned, you can just drive straight and follow the 
yellow line. Otherwise, you can either drive past the loan sharks and double 
back to the GPS route, or spin the car around quickly. Either way it's not 
really that hard, although they will begin shooting at you if you get too close.

When you reach the cab office, the mission will end.

Roman will have a new mission for you, but not immediately. You can just run 
around the block a few times until the R appears though.


.=============================================================================.
| 3. THREE'S A CROWD                                                   [M003] |
'============================================================================='

Chain:   Roman
Prereq:  It's Your Call
Starts:  Hove Beach, Cab Office
Ends:    Hove Beach, Russian Shop
Rewards: Michelle as a cell phone contact and potential girlfriend
         Some free clothes
Unlocks: First Date
         Bleed Out

Overview:

1. Drive to the subway station to pick up Mallorie and Michelle (use your horn 
   to get their attention).

2. Drive to Michelle's apartment to drop them off.

3. Roman suggests buying some new clothes to better impress the ladies. Drive 
   there and buy at least one article of clothing (the first one will be free).

Another simple mission. Head over to the subway station to pick up Mallorie and 
her friend Michelle. Mallorie will more or less set you up with Michelle, and 
she gets added to your contacts list on your phone when you drive them back to 
Michelle's apartment. 

Niko now speaks to Roman on the cell phone, and Roman suggests getting some new 
clothes at a Russian Shop in Hove Beach. Head there now, and head inside. You 
can try on most of the clothes and accessories that you see here, and you'll 
need to buy at least one article of clothing to complete the mission. Find 
something you like, and purchase it. This first piece will be on the house, but 
any additional clothes you want will have to come out of your own funds. This 
ends the mission.

There's a tiny branch in missions now. You can call Michelle and ask her out on 
a date, or wait for her to call you. Either way, the phone call will end in a 
date for Niko, and an M/Heart icon will appear on the mini-map.

Before we do that, however, there's someone new we can meet. If you open up 
your map and look about a block east from the Platypus (the ship Niko shipped 
in on), you should see a blue "person" icon. Basically, he's right near Roman's 
Cab Office. This is Brian, and he appeared when we finished Mission 2. Head 
there now.


.=============================================================================.
| 4. BRIAN: ENCOUNTER #1                                               [M004] |
'============================================================================='

Chain:   Brian
Prereq:  It's Your Call
Starts:  Hove Beach, Cab Office
Ends:    Hove Beach, Cab Office
Rewards: $100
Unlocks: Brian: Encounter #2

Approach Brian to trigger an exchange. You'll make a quick $100. It's a shame 
there aren't more rich young cokeheads around, eh?

Before you start the next mission, I suggest you arm yourself (a baseball bat 
will do fine), so let's go find one. First, head back to your safehouse and 
save if you want. When you exit the house, head straight across the street, 
into the alley, and straight into the alcove in the building in front of you. 
There should be a baseball bat sitting in the tall grass. 

To continue, head north towards Michelle's icon. When you get near her house, 
Roman will call you and ask for help. You can ignore him and go on your date 
with Michelle, but Roman will be sent to the hospital, and you'll have to pick 
him up and drive him home before attempting his mission. If you want to skip 
this step, snub Michelle for now and rush to Roman's aid.


.=============================================================================.
| 5. BLEED OUT                                                         [M005] |
'============================================================================='

Chain:   Roman
Prereq:  Three's a Crowd
Starts:  Firefly Projects, Basketball Court
Ends:    Hove Beach, Cab Office
Rewards: $50
Unlocks: Easy Fare (1 of 2 mission prerequisites)

Overview:

Conditional: If you are doing this mission after First Date, you'll have to 
drive Roman home from the hospital first.

1. Drive to the basketball court in the Firefly Projects.

2. Beat up Bledar and Kalem. Darden is here too and takes off in his car. Hop 
   in Roman's car and give chase.

3. Darden will jump out of his car at some point and proceed on foot. Chase him
   and finish him off.

4. Drive Roman back to the cab office.

When you reach the basketball court, head over towards the vicinity of Roman to 
trigger a cutscene. Afterwards, the game will give you a tutorial while Bledar 
attempts to fight. You can follow the tutorial if you'd like, but it's actually 
kind of dangerous to get low on health before the mission is over. If you 
picked up the bat, as I suggested, just beat Bledar a few times to drop him, 
and then focus your efforts on Kalem.

When they're down, Roman will spot Darden, who jets off when he's spotted. 
Follow Roman out of the court to his waiting cab and give chase. By the time 
you make it out of the court and Roman gets in the car, Darden will have had 
quite a head start. Follow him on the radar (use down on the d-pad to zoom out 
if you'd like), and you should catch up with him shortly. 

He'll speed up the moment you draw close to him, and it's very difficult to 
catch up to him. Concentrate on driving at a speed that isn't too fast, but 
don't lose sight of Darden. It is worse to drive too fast and hit tons of stuff 
than driving a bit slower.

There are a few scripted cars and trucks that will be in your way during the 
chase. Specifically, watch out for the garbage truck. When you see it, get 
ready to take a quick left turn to follow Darden. Soon after this, he will hop 
out of his car. Run after him up all the flights of stairs, where you will 
corner him in a room. 

Darden wields a knife, and so it's important that you either have a bit of 
health remaining or brought the baseball bat. The bat will make short work of 
him, and you can pick up the knife after if you want. If you don't have the bat,
your best bet is to remain on the defensive, tap A to dodge his attack when he 
strikes, and tap one of the other melee buttons to disarm him.

After he's down, hop in Roman's car and head back to the cab depot to end the 
mission.

Now head to Michelle's icon for the next mission.


.=============================================================================.
| 6. FIRST DATE                                                        [M006] |
'============================================================================='

Chain:   Michelle
Prereq:  Three's a Crowd
Starts:  Rotterdam Hill, Michelle's Apartment
Ends:    Rotterdam Hill, Michelle's Apartment
Rewards: Gobble Gobble - 10G (X360 Achievement) - 3 strikes in a row (Turkey)
Unlocks: Easy Fare (1 of 2 mission prerequisites)

Overview:

1. Watch the tutorial on girlfriends and friends.

2. Watch the slightly awkward conversation between Niko and Michelle.

3. Drive to the carnival and take Michelle bowling.

4. Drive Michelle home.

Michelle will hop in the car with you after you go and get her. Depending on 
whether you're doing this mission before or after Bleed Out, you'll have a 
different conversation with Michelle on the drive over to the boardwalk.

When you get there, get out of the car, head up the steps in front of you to 
the actual boardwalk, and head left. You'll see the rather suggestive bowling 
alley sign off in the distance, so walk there with Michelle (or run, she 
doesn't mind). 

You'll get a free game when you're inside, so pick a lane to begin playing. Pay 
attention to the controls, since you can't just wave the controller around like 
a madman like on other consoles (even though Wii bowling is a lot of fun).

If you bowl three strikes in a row, you can earn the "Gobble Gobble" 
Achievement (10G), but it's definitely not necessary to do this now. Practice 
for now, and if you don't get the Achievement, you can always just try later. 
As of now, I don't have any really good tips, since I haven't gotten the 
Achievement myself.

Michelle will ask you to drive her home after, so do so.

| 7. EASY FARE                                                         [M007] |
'============================================================================='

Chain:   Roman
Prereqs: Bleed Out
         First Date
Starts:  Hove Beach, Cab Office
Ends:    Outlook, Pay 'n' Spray
Rewards: $100
Unlocks: Jamaican Heat
         
Overview:

1. Pick up Jermaine. 

2. Drive him to his garage.

3. Outrun the cops. First drive away from them to escape the flashing circle on
   the radar. Then stay out of the circle and out of trouble until your stars 
   go away.

4. Drive to Gibson Street.

The mission starts out simple enough. Pick up Jermaine and drive him to his 
garage. He notices that the garage is open, which means that something isn't 
right. Indeed, the police arrive soon after, and you'll have to make a quick 
getaway.

Immediately start driving away from the cops and try to find a nice open 
straightaway. Remember that driving carefully is probably better than being a 
speed demon but hitting a lot of stuff, especially if the cops run up and grab 
you out of the car while you're stopped. You can look on the mini-map for roads 
that are wider than others and head to those. Your best bet is to head more or 
less north, since it's difficult to escape the police circle by heading east or 
west. 

When you've escaped the circle, hold tight a moment while your wanted level 
fades. When the heat is gone, you'll be cued to drive Jermaine to the Pay 'n' 
Spray on Gibson Street. 

If you aren't familiar with Pay 'n' Sprays, you'll learn what they do here.

Head back to the cab office for another mission.

| 8. JAMAICAN HEAT                                                     [M008] |
'============================================================================='

Chain:   Roman
Prereqs: Easy Fare
Starts:  Hove Beach, Cab Office
Ends:    Beechwood City, Homebrew Cafe
Rewards: Pistol
         Little Jacob as a cell phone contact
         $150
Unlocks: Bull in a China Shop
         Concrete Jungle

Overview: 

1. Pick up Little Jacob.

2. Drive him to his meeting.

3. Protect Little Jacob during the exchange. Make sure to pick up the ammo 
   afterwards.

4. Drive Little Jacob to the Homebrew Cafe.

Pick up Little Jacob and drive him to the meeting place (I'm not going to waste 
time or space with details about these easy beginning parts of the missions 
anymore, as the GPS will take care of that work for you). During the drive, 
Little Jacob will give you a pistol.

Head up the steps that Little Jacob indicates, and crouch in the marker for a 
good lookout position. During the exchange, three thugs will appear and open 
fire on Little Jacob. Use the pistol's auto aim feature to target and shoot 
them before they gun down Little Jacob. Make sure you remain crouched, as this 
will increase your accuracy.

Don't immediately jump down when you're done gunning down the first three guys, 
as someone will emerge onto a second story landing and start shooting. Gun him 
down, and hop down yourself. Take some time to pick up the various weapons that 
the thugs dropped, and head back to the car with Little Jacob in tow.

Drop him off at the Homebrew Cafe to end the mission.

No new missions make themselves apparent at the moment, so drive around until 
you get a phone call from an unknown caller. Answer it. It's Vlad, and he wants 
you to come visit him.

You should also get a call from Little Jacob. If you answer, he asks you to 
swing by, and an LJ icon will appear on the map.

Finally, if you call Roman, he will tell you that he has some Taxi missions for 
you to do. These are similar to previous taxi missions, wherein you drive the 
customer to their desired location and get money based on how fast and well you 
do it, but the difference is that the Taxi missions don't add to your final % 
score. Basically, you can do them for some extra cash when you need it.

| 9. BULL IN A CHINA SHOP                                              [M009] |
'============================================================================='

Chain:   Vlad
Prereqs: Jamaican Heat
Starts:  Hove Beach, near Jizzy Jims
Ends:    Hove Beach, near Jizzy Jims
Rewards: $50
Unlocks: Hung Out to Dry

Overview: 

1. Either take a cab or walk or drive or whatever to the china shop.

2. Talk to the owner.

3. Find a brick.

4. Throw it through the window.

5. Get the money and return it to Vlad.

The game introduces you to the fact that you can hail cabs and use them to get 
to your destination. Do this if you wish, but either way, head to the china 
shop.

When you get there, the owner doesn't seem to intimidated, and the game prompts 
you to find something to throw through the window. The green dot on your mini-
map clues you in to where you can find a bunch of bricks. Head over there and 
grab one, and then run back to the china shop (red dot). Hurl the brick through 
the window (pay attention to the throwing controls too!) and you'll finally 
scare the owner. He pays up.

The mission ends when you return the money to Vlad. 

Drive around until you get a text message from Vlad. He has another mission for 
you.


.=============================================================================.
| 10. HUNG OUT TO DRY                                                  [M010] |
'============================================================================='

Chain:   Vlad
Prereqs: Bull in a China Shop
Starts:  Hove Beach, near Jizzy Jims
Ends:    Wherever you manage to corner the shop owner
Rewards: $100
Unlocks: Clean Getaway

Overview: 

1. Drive to the laundromat and speak with the owner.

2. Chase him out the back, and grab a car.

3. Ram him off the road and collect the money.

Grab a car and drive over to the laundromat. The owner is inside, and he jets 
as soon as you mention Vlad. Run out the back after him, and break into one of 
the vehicles (you'll have to wait through the breaking in animation after 
pressing Y to let Niko break into the car). Use the mini-map (or the menu map) 
to find where the owner went, and start chasing him.

When you reach him, follow him until you have a good chance to start ramming 
his car. If you can make him fishtail into a wall, all the better. This gives 
you a few free hits. When you've rammed him enough, a cutscene will play where 
we get a first look at Niko's more brutal side, and the mission will end.

| 11. FREEFORM FUN                                                     [M011] |
'============================================================================='

If you've been following this guide, you probably haven't done too much on your 
own. Drive around for a bit, and if Roman hasn't called you to hang out by now, 
he should at this point. Any activities you do with him will change his 
attitude towards you for the worse or better, and can be tracked in the menu. 
Try taking him out drinking; it costs $50, but ensuing madness trying to walk 
and drive him home drunk is pretty fun.

Roman should call you sometime after, offering to let you use his Taxis for 
free anytime you call him. If you are playing on the XBox 360, you will get an 
Achievement for this: Driving Mr. Bellic (10G).

If you want to make back that $50, you could try some Taxi missions!

Also, if you've been ignoring Michelle, maybe it's time to take her on another 
date.

You can start hunting for flying rats too. Check the section at the end for 
more details.

Hunt around for weapons and body armor. It can never hurt to be armed and 
protected.

Most of all, just explore and have fun, create havoc, visit different venues, 
games, events, strip clubs, whatever!

Now is also a good time to look for Brian again. Check out the map of the 
island. In the bottom left, look at the main (brighter white) streets. There's 
a main road that curves to the north and east. From the curve, head east until 
you see the blue "person" marker. In short, he's along the southernmost street 
in Hove Beach. This is Brian again.

| 12. BRIAN: ENCOUNTER #2                                              [M012] |
'============================================================================='

Chain:   Brian
Prereq:  Brian: Encounter #1
Starts:  Hove Beach, southwesternish corner, near hardware store
Ends:    Hove Beach, Brian's "Place"
Rewards: $200
Unlocks: Brian: Encounter #3

Overview:

1. Pick up Brian.

2. Drive him to the deal.

3. Drive him "home".

Brain is tweaking out pretty bad when you approach him, but he offers you a 
chance to make a quick buck. Find a car (you probably have one) and pick him up.
All you need to do for this mission is drive him to the Deal, and then bring 
him home. Afterwards, you'll get quite a nice reward.

I've started to write up strategies on finding these little guys, but it would 
be worlds easier if I had some sort of map to reference. I'm assuming someone 
will eventually work on one for GameFAQs, so perhaps someone could get in touch 
with me and collaborate? I don't have a scanner and/or the necessary Photoshop 
skills (MS Paint skills, rather) to make a nice looking one.
