Computerbild-Spiele preview with new screens

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 02:02 PM MDT | By Slim Trashman
Computerbild-Spiele, a German gaming magazine, in their latest issue contained a preview on GTA IV, and for the first time, a "hands on" preview, as opposed to viewing a demo. Below are some key points of the preview:
• The game is set in 2008.
• From what their experiences, Niko always wears a helmet while riding a motorcycle, influencing that this may be a mandatory thing.
• Now there are two buttons, as opposed to the previous one, to enter a car and drive away (one to enter/exit, one to start the engine).
• Niko may come across useful items in the cars he steals (weapons, money, etc).
• The wasted! system appears generally the same. Respawn at the hospital and loss of all your weapons.
• Bullet holes will remain visible and will not immediately disappear

The preview also contained 11 new screenshots and a nice new artwork of Niko involved in a police chase. Unfortunately, we only have scans at this time, but I'm sure it won't be long until digital versions are released.

For a full scan of 5 page preview and the rest of the new screenshots, check out the forum topic.
