No Clock!!!!

I have just got GTA IV in the last few days and one big disadvantage I've noticed is that there isn't a clock anymore in the corner of the screen so you don't know how long it's gonna be by the time it's night or day etc

Plus when you're driving you can't look to your sides easily anymore to do a drive by, instead you have to drag the camear view around while you're driving which is hard to do at the same time!!

Oh and by the way how do you get into the subway with a car on the first island?

The clock is on your cell phone.

Being able to control the crosshair when your driving gives you far more accuracy when shooting. Way better than just having one angle to shoot at form either side.
It will be even more accurate when we get to control the shooting with a mouse too.

The Clock on the Cell Phone also gives you the date too, and is eaily accessed by just up Up on the D-Pad to check the time. Also keep in mind Time moves slower in GTA IV, instead of the past method of 1 Second Real Time = 1 Minute Game Time, it's now 2 Seconds Real Time = 1 Minute Game Time, so the days last longer.

Thanks for explaining that! I noticed it didn't move quite the same! They could even slow it down a little more. 5 secs RT = 1 minute GT would be nice. I know it would take longer if you were waiting for something tho..

Dragging the camera is only limited to a few angles when driving at high speeds. You can, though, aim freely at high speeds by just holding the LB (dunno for the ps3), the game will respond to your aiming and the speed effect will be cancelled... you know what I'm sayin'?? So just hold the LB button to aim and shoot and the camera will rotate as you like it to.

I have now just made it to the second island!!

Can someone tell me where I can find a helicopter to fly? my first instinct was to try the Police station but there's a few and the 3 I checked didn't have any roof access, so where can I find a chopper?

I don't know if there are any at the airport because as soon as I go there the cops are on my back.

South of Algonquin, you should find an icon saying Helitour. Go there and steal one of the choppers.

Helitours, it will appear on your radar after that, easy to find, only place with like 4 Helicopters lined up, sticking out of the south of Algonquin in a kind of T-Shape, great view of Broker Bridge if you look north from it.

I avoid the airport due to the Instant 4-Star Wanted Level, but I think a Helicopter spawns there when the story is finished, or when you get 200 Pigeons. As for the Police chopper, no spawn point has been found, but a few people have managed to jack one during a fight, though it was somewhat difficult.
