Fun in Liberty City

10 things you probably still haven't done in the latest Grand Theft Auto

Ever played those bonus rounds in the Street Fighter games where you get to dismantle a truck with punching? Well, guess what you can do in Liberty City Stories?

Sure, you already knew that you could crash vehicles, shoot them with rockets or drop them off cliffs to destroy them. But if you want to make them explode like a real man, there's only one way to go: pounding them into scrap with your bare hands.

You might have noticed that punching a car can eventually dent the door or break a window. But if you keep beating on it, you'll find that everything else comes off, too. With enough persistence, you can even punch a giant garbage truck to death, just like your grandpa did in the Big One.

So don't take out your frustrations on the hapless prostitutes who wander the streets. Real men beat up cars.


After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
