Oh, my GOD! Grand Theft Auto 3
is a trip! There's 73 missions to keep you busy - but you can choose to do your missions when - and if - you get around to them. While you're between missions, you can entertain yourself by jacking cars, mugging people, searching for the valuable packages hidden throughout the game (100 of them in all), racing around the city and running over people, crushing cars, finding hidden cars, going on a 'Rampage' (basically a timed killing spree), destroying helicopters, pulling off 'INSANE' stunts, and just committing general thuggery. Wanna go for a joyride? Steal yourself a taxi and start making money by picking up fares and getting there. Wanna do your part to help clean up Liberty City? Grab yourself a police car and find a criminal... then waste him! Too violent? No problem, carjack an ambulance and seek out the injured and rush them to the hospital to make some bank. ...Then run over them on your way to your next injured Liberite... I mean, hey! - You got YOUR money, right?
And of course, you'll have to worry about the Liberty City Police Department. In fact, if you cause enough havok, you'll get S.W.A.T teams and even the FBI after you. So you might want to find some ways to lie low and shake the heat a bit. Oh - and if you're low on health but not on cash, you can pick up a dame in the red light district by honking your horn; take her to a remote area and she'll give you some, ah, 'therapy'... with enough cash you'll see that your health level comes higher than it originally started. Then she leaves. Okay, now don't forget to say 'Thank you' as you watch that nice lady walk away... that nice lady on foot ... with all that cash . . .
