The new Liberty City is an awfully big place, filled with diverse architecture, dense traffic and all sorts of unpredictable hazards that could leap out at any time to harm mass-murdering immigrant sociopaths. And after having plenty of time to explore it fully, we decided it was time to see how fast we could make it from one end to the other, while at the same time giving anyone who still hasn't played Grand Theft Auto IV a (very) quick tour of the city.
Starting at Liberty City's westernmost point - a cliff overlooking the ocean in Alderney - we hopped in a SuperGT and jammed it nonstop all the way to the runways of Francis International Airport in Broker. Wall-driving, crash-happy craziness ensued - and you can watch it all, unedited, right here:
As you can see, our best time - from the point where Niko walks away from the cliff to his splash by the airport - is about four minutes, 18 seconds. But we're willing to bet you can do better, so we invite you to shove your awesomeness in our faces by recording your own runs, uploading them to YouTube and posting them to our forum. Good luck - it's dangerous out there.
