GTA Police

Well, I haven't gotten GTA IV yet, but I'm planning to get it for the PS3 sometime this weekend. In all GTA's, I liked to go around as a police officer or drive their vehicles. I've seen videos of the police in GTA IV, but can anyone please tell me how it really is like? Is it more realistic now, better sirens, better communication, or what? I heard that you can summon a police car to a scene and look up criminals.

 

Thanks.

The cars are closely modeled after the NYPD. They even have the C.P.R. acronym on the back doors. They have the Crown Vic cruiser variant and the Impala variant. They look cool and you can use the police computer now to look up thugs, view crimes and respond to them (vigilante missions), and also track down the most wanted criminals on each island.

 

It's cool, needless to say.

How would you compare the police of other GTAs to GTA IV?

Yes, I've noticed the NYPD idea, which is pretty cool because it makes the game more realistic. I understand all that you have said, but are the police more realistic than the other GTAs? Will the police will chase you without crashing often, arrest you more realistically (when they open the door to your car), and of that kind?

That's really awesome. Three different sirens makes the police in GTA IV more improved than before. Also, I like the fact that if someone shoots one of your lights it will create a broken siren sound.

they will arrest you when you stop,you can decide to jet or get arrested.cops also take cover behind walls and cars so their more careful.it's not like vice cty,where every cop was doing a kamakazee lol.

Overall I'd say it is more realistic, yes.

realistic ?

 

XD, more like brats that won't leave you alone.

 

Shoot a gun once and you will get a star...even* when cops are not there, some ped will whip out their cell phone and snitch in a matter of seconds.

 

Just letting you know tho...so you won't be ranting sayin "WHAT THE f*ck THESE COPS WON'T LEAVE ME ALONE!" like I did in that Snow Storm mission.

they never seem to bust you properly now.

 

I have completed the whole game and never been busted.

in previous GTAs I used to get busted quite often because the cop would pull you out of the car. now they just shoot you.

Yeah, olny up to 4 stars then the heat starts to come down on you very hard.

 

Cops are on every block waiting for you to show up so they can re-located you over and over again.

 

Just because you left the circle don't mean you gotten away just yet...there are still cops on each block lookin for you...you have to slow down and wait 1 min untill your stars blink-out like in the other games as if you would do if you went into PayNSpray or change into new out-fit.

 

That's pretty much it.

They give you chances now.

 

Think of the TV show "Cops" when a cop pulls the person over and they stand there for a while acttin like they are goin to let the cop take them in then out of no where the person takes off runnin.

 

If you run from a cop on foot after they try to take you in, they give you 2 stars

Thanks for the all the help everyone. Now I really undestand the LCPD cops in GTA IV. I think that is really has improved. The fact that there is a circle instead of just PayNSpray is neat, and as someone said, they approach you like the TV show "Cops" that I frequently watch.

I'll keep that in mind.

That's good (as in improved) because if it was just the circle then that would put a bad name on police. They never (atleast shouldn't) quit.

For those who want more realism, or think the cops are too hard on Niko, it could be worse. You can get away with damn near ANYTHING before a cop will bust you. Speeding, driving on the wrong side of the road, running red lights, slamming into cars (not LCPD cars tho), knocking down light poles, etc. They leave you alone. Unlike some other game I know.

 

In some ways I miss that. I kinda liked the realism of having to keep my speed and driving in check around cops.

When you have one star and a cop tries to arrest you, I've heard if you press L3(duck) you can get away without the 2 stars(if you press A you get 2 stars).

 

The phone thing is annoying, though. I was hitting a car in a alley with a firetruck and the cops came.. Pretty irritating.
