Grand Theft Auto IV Achievements

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 07:20 AM MDT | By Neil
A few weeks ago a number of gaming websites posted stories with content claiming to be the full Grand Theft Auto IV achievement list for Xbox 360. GTAGaming has now seen enough evidence to believe that these were indeed legitimate, and we've created a new page detailing every achievement's name, value and description.

Check out the new achievements page!

GTA IV gets a perfect 10 from OXM

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 04:27 AM MDT | By Asif + Neil
The latest issue of the UK's Official Xbox Magazine has reached subscribers today and it includes the world's first review of Grand Theft Auto IV. The impression given by the magazine is overwhelmingly positive, with a perfect 10/10 score.
"It says something that even at the end of a three-day session, with every island and a substantial chunk of the sidequests unlocked, I was still ploughing on because I wanted to see how the story ended. And I was still finding new stuff: the way a police klaxon goes strangled and gargley if you dent the light bar, the pedestrian who had the original GTA theme as their phone ringtone, the way that headshot drivers can fall on the horn and accelerator so you're run over by a dead man...This sets the standard for what you should expect from a truly next-gen game. You owe it to yourself to play it."

View the rest of the new shots in our gallery!

New information disclosed in this article:
  • Skipping a trip in a taxi costs more than simply sitting back and enjoying the view of the driver's head.
  • The Statue of Happiness is clutching a coffee cup rather than the torch her real life counterpart has.
  • Some celebrity voice actors play themselves in the game.
  • Like Crackdown's Orbs, the collectable (hidden packages?) in GTA IV make a soft sound as you get close to them, aiding you in finding them all.
  • Your in-game email account will get the odd piece of spam.
  • Driving through flames will set a car's tires on fire, causing them to burst after a while.
  • One mission involves traveling across town with two bodies in the trunk - if you hit a bump and it opens, you'll have to scramble to close it again before any passers-by notice.
  • The mobile phone you receive at the start of the game is an old, second hand model capable only of calling and texting. You'll need to wait for an upgrade later in the story to unlock the full functionality that people get from more modern models.
  • Downloadable episodes are confirmed to contain at least 10 hours of gameplay.
The magazine also mentions the Assassin's Greed achievement, which we listed on the site yesterday, leaving no doubt in our mind that those are indeed legitimate. If you missed them, find out about all 1000G on the achievements page.
