ThemeGrand Theft Auto IV: London
throws the gamer back to the 1980s, a world away from the glitz and glamour of Vice City in a violent depiction of Britains transitional underworld. Introducing Raymond Caine, an infamous gangland murderer since disregarded to the depths of murky East End folklore.
The 40-year-old Caine cuts a strong, calculating demeanour, one of a hardened, habitual criminal. Raymond returns to London after serving an eight year sentence in high security prison fixated with propelling his character back into the only life he has ever known, ruthlessly determined to carve out a piece of the lucrative action for his own. Ray soon finds himself an unwelcome presence, appeased by former associates only out of fear for reprisal. Dispatched to the countryside to oversee a business transaction, Raymond is set up by an ambitious third party and finds himself raided of merchandise. Indebted to his bosses and target of retribution in a changing world of seedy vices and underhand deals, at what lengths will Raymond Caine go to reaffirm his reputation?
Once an amateur boxer of local fame, representing Great Britain in bouts, Ray grew out of impoverished youth to pursue an initial career in the Royal Air Force. Stationed in Gibraltar, here he would learn the basics of aircraft and weaponry while his capacity as a natural leader of men would be encouraged by the military. With an army of skills belying his lack of any formal education, Ray returned a highly sought asset by figures waiting with open arms to welcome him back to London.
For what he would become notorious, Raymond operated throughout the sixties an East End torture unit. In this role he would spread across London a wave of terror, one defying all attempts of police to stop him. At his eventual capture in 1973, those at court of the much publicised torture trials heard tale of the former serviceman rigging a decommissioned army generator to the genitalia of a victim as to deliver numerous violent shocks of electricity. Also popular were disfigurement, the removal of teeth with pliers and their crucifying of antagonists by means of nailing them to the floor. The police also uncovered the operation of an underground monarchy, the twisted ruling panel victims would first be paraded before subsequent to a ruling of desired punishment. While others escaped punishment, strong evidence condemned Raymond to an eight year stretch in Category A. With the duration of his sentence served in a Northern prison, the rise of former associates would relegate the legend of Raymond Caine to only infamy.
An unstable, sociopathic personality, Ray cares little for relationships out of his exclusive circle. Intensely disliked by a progressive underworld who deem his character too dangerous to be accepted, Raymond projects an aura of constant power in that he appears a savage force free of constraints, acting as an individual force dictated only by his own megalomanic motives. • Credits: This post has been edited by Tyla on Sunday, Mar 11 2012, 14:06

On behalf of the British Government, Ray must eliminate a series of targets that pose risks to national security. His role is to dismember links between London and groups such as the Provisional IRA, and to ensure figures from the Soviet do not get too involved
in British affairs.• Bouncer/Doorman
Ray takes on the authority of running a door. Admit those worthy of entrance and deny troublemakers. On occasions Ray may deviate from his post and take charge of the crowd inside, weeding out aggressors, drunks, and depending on club policy: dealers. Rewards: Bouncer Tuxedo, Additional Combat Skills, Backup• Burglary
With the assistance of Dave and his Luton
, Ray can scout the map in search of targets to burgle. Property can be broken into with the use of a Crowbar, with rewards varying depending on the scale of property choosen. Hitting storage warehouses will allow Ray to steal directly from the supplier, and with the added risks, heisting a warehouse will form the greatest produce of profitable goods: Alcohol, Electronics and Tobacco.• Debt Collecting
Working for Lyons & McCann Debt Recovery
, Ray must sway those in debt into repaying their creditors, through means of either violence, intimidation, or repossession. Once Ray is assigned a job, their address appears automatically on the map and their phone number is added to his directory. It is then up to Ray to make his approach and collect the cash in question.Rewards: Ability to Loan Shark• Favours
The currency of the London underworld, Ray will occasionally be called upon by a contact and asked to do them a favour. The favour in question will depend on the interests of the contact, and Ray can call on the favour to be returned at any time by selecting the unlocked perk under his associates name within the telephone directory.Rewards: Armed Backup, Discount Weapons, Free Asset Protection• Football Hooligan
Joining Dave and his hooligans, Ray will play his part in dominating the terraces of London through ambushing rivals, destroying fan haunts and causing absolute chaos in the name of the beloved local football team. For this side mission, Ray is restricted to fists and melee combat only.Rewards: Melee Backup• Hijacking
To hijack a goods truck, Ray first must either earn a tip off or bribe an official to gain the route of a vehicle bringing in merchandise from abroad. While the validity of these can vary, hitting these trucks will allow Ray to gain control of unparalleled amounts of items that can be sold on for profit, ranging from clothing to meat to vehicles. Once Ray has control of a haul, he can deliver it to Alan at a storage warehouse for a cash-in-hand payment or to be held (at the risk of confiscation) for sale at a later date, in which he may profit more as demand increases. • Hired Muscle
Once his reputation has been solidified, Ray will be contacted by bosses met through the storyline with further opportunities to work for them. Constructed around the specific interests of the organization, each will have five unique tasks available to Ray. The more his Criminal Rating grows, the further his name will extend and the more weight it will carry. Characters on the street in predicaments, and gangs aside from those met through missions will approach Ray to take care of business, with this becoming all the more frequent as his reputation extends.Rewards: Selected gangs unlocked as contacts for use in Black Market and Drugs• Ice Cream Man
After purchasing a majority stake in the local ice cream company, Ray begins to convert the use for the fleet of vans into outlets for drugs. When roaming the streets, he will differentiate between parents looking to buy soft treats for their children and junkies looking for a fix and take up residence at the side of the road to push gear. Competition will be rife and avoiding the police is paramount.Rewards: Ability to add to the fleet of vans and purchase dealers to shift product.• Kidnapping
Working in clubland within close proximity to the rich and famous will allow Ray to gather a good understanding of those who hold wealth. He will case a list of potential targets and their routines, and with his gang, will hold them for ransom. The target must be held in a safehouse until the fee is delivered - the swiftness, of which, depends on the threats Ray issues and contact being maintained with negotiators.• Paramedic
Assisting his doctor, a back street practitioner, Ray will be required to collect wounded clients and spare them from mortality by delivering them to safety before they succumb to their injuries. In other instances, Ray will be sent out to collect harvested 'black market' organs and transport them to the doctor's office within a time limit, while he may also be required to dispose of the bodies of patients who have not been so lucky as to survive surgery. Reward: Free Treatment• Robberies
Ray, at any time, is able to hold up a business and demand the contents of the cash register. Aside from petty money robberies, with his gang Ray can plot to more bigger, ambitious scores:
• Cash Transit Van
• Money Train
Ray will be required to assemble a crew for each job, and will need to equip the skills of various personnel in order to get the job done right.
• Street Fighting
Expanded on from The Ballad of Gay Tony
, Ray has several types of illegitimate bouts that he can compete in. The fights are brutal, but the profits are worth it.
Reputation represents Rays fighting history and details how many fights he has fought, how many he has won, lost, and how many knockouts he has to his name. When starting out, Ray will need to build a reputation from scratch. Each time he challenges (and beat) an opponent, he gains the defeated's reputation added to his own. The greater Ray's reputation, greater will be the stakes when it comes to straighteners and greater will be the frequency Ray is challenged. Should Ray be beat in a fight, his entire reputation is lost, and gained by the man who fells him.
• Bareknuckle Boxing
First seen in and unlocked after ...Worth Your Weight
, Ray can compete in bare-fisted bouts by placing a £500 wager at Mack McCanns traveller site. Your opponent will meet the wager and await you in a boxing ring. The fight lasts until one man drops, with health being replenished between rounds.
• Cage Fighting
Unlocked as your reputation progresses on the bareknuckle circuit, these organized fights will be uprooted from the usual boxing ring to a steel cage. Wagers are now increased from £500 to £3,000 and Rays opponents will frequently be mean and disciplined foreign bred fighters, with biting and headbutting the weapons of choice.
The last form of Street Fight to be unlocked, once Rays reputation in the ring is solidified, rival fighters will contact him with a view to a bout over reputation. While Ray does not put down a wager himself, investors will put together a pot of which the eventual winner will take home. The greater your reputation, the greater the stakes. Straighteners can take place in any number of locations, from car parks and scrap yards to rings formed out of parked vehicles and council flats.• Taxi
Available once the Taxi Company has been purchased, Ray will be able to take the wheel himself and collect fares. Initially restricted to the London Cab
, with the extending of the business to running executive cars after 25 fares, a Schafter
will become available for use. Reward: Free Taxi Rides for the boss. This post has been edited by Tyla on Thursday, May 16 2013, 00:49

The primary setting of this game is London, recreated in four distinctive divisions of North, East, South and West. Though not depicted entirely true to life each area would have its own distinctive aura and instil different feelings inside of you every time you pass through a neighbourhood. The City and landmarks such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament are accurately parodied in game.
A main difference in this depiction of London is that it is not modern day and it is set in a period where Canary Wharf was still the shut down docklands. The Docklands are closed and non functioning but serve as one of the major areas of the game due to conflicts over their redevelopment being a main plot point and the player subsequently having to seize control of the land as a part of building their empire.
The map of London is backed to the North by countryside in the form of a mainly rural depiction of Essex. The countryside will host several villages and large, luxury estates where the rich East End gangsters go to live when theyve made it. This is a stark contrast to London, where instead of barrelling down crowded, gridlocked streets you can bomb through scenic B Roads at speed. Motorways also serve as connecting points, as do rail lines.
The depiction of Southend serves as the tackier, cheesy parody of 1980s Essex. The pier, amusement arcades and casinos are backed up by a strip of nightclubs that the player will eventually fight for control of. Also featured is the Cliffs Pavilion, where the protagonist will find themselves profiting from security arrangements. In the game, it is generally considered a shadier, third world Las Venturas.
A smaller area of countryside borders London to the south, along with coastal areas. A high security psychiatric hospital based on Broadmoor will be prominently featured in game.Update 04/12/2010
As suggested by brownbear and Max.
, sometimes known as London-by-the-sea, is along with Southend
one of two seaside resorts that feature in the game, both in different ends of the map. It serves as a relatively tranquil area devoid of much visible crime with the only gangs operating here being small timers or organized figures that operate in the shadows. It is however full of holidaymakers and Brighton's beaches are often packed out with day trippers even during the variable Spring-Summer setting that the game takes place in. Brighton is a favourite destination of Mod Revivalists whom along with Skinheads often clash with rival Rocker and Teddy Boy revivalists.
Brighton will become prominent during the latter stages of the game when the player has control of an empire. Being one of England's premier party spots, Ray will have an involvement in competing for control of much of the lucrative security aspects involved in this trade that are provided to Concert Venues, Nightclubs and early beach/rave parties. Those that have control of these contracts will not be in a hurry to give them up.
Leisure activities include the Speed Trials
, of which the player can race in, the race track where the player can stake bets on greyhounds/horses and rig races, boating activities at the Marina
and the Pier
, which has an Electric Railway
running the length of it for easy scaling.Why 1982?
Unlike the glitz and glamour of Vice City we saw in 1984 and 1986, this setting showcases the more dark and gritty side to the early 1980s. In Britain especially, the collapse of big industries such as coal mining formed the back bone of chronic unemployment and a general feeling of oppression by the government amongst the working classes. To contrast this, those who had money had unprecedented opportunities.
Racial tensions were also a big thing in this period with several large scale riots (London, Liverpool, Birmingham) taking place. The Metropolitan Police came under great scrutiny (see the Scarman Report) due to their methods and general brutality, and seemingly totally failing the new influx of ethnic minorities. Riots and protest will be featured in the game, and tensions will be visibly present.
A number of subcultures were present during this era, with revivals of the days of Mods & Rockers. The sheer variety of these would make for great parody and it would be commonplace for the player to witness conflicts between these groups or to find themselves amongst them at a nightclub or venue.
Criminally speaking, the 1980s were the era of foreign gangs becoming prominent in London and taking footholds for themselves. This allows for a diverse storyline and crime groups from a wealth of backgrounds. It was also during these times that drugs became big amongst British criminals and the rise of this phenomenon will be witnessed from the eyes of an old school gangster who must adapt.• Assets and Businesses
As an experienced racketeer, Ray's first steps in a position of power are to set himself up with fronts and rackets. These businesses, once purchased, can be upgraded with further assets, in turn earning Ray more money from his exploits. Completing the mission strands for each business will unlock new side missions and provide Ray with a number of rewards.• Black Market
Functioning parallel to traditional means of acquiring possessions in the game, the allure of the Black Market allows Ray to purchase goods he would not otherwise find or encounter in his location, whilst also allowing for him to profit by participating in the trade of illegal merchandise that has somehow found its way into his hands.Items that can be bought on the Black Market: Clothes, Electronics, Vehicles, Weapons• Car Modification
Upon completion of the Chop Shop asset, Ray is able to modify his current vehicle. In addition to the standard colour change, Ray can upgrade the performance of his vehicle, install a car phone, have the sound system rewired and replace rims.• Clothing
Several clothing stores are available across the map, ranging in cheap clothes to designer suits.• Clobber - The favoured label of London's bouncers, Clobber specialise in bulky double breasted suits, trenchcoats and bomber jackets.• Didier Sachs - A trusted name through generations, Didier Sachs manufacture quality blazers, shirts and suit jackets at reasonable prices.
• Looney's of London - Founded in 1960, Looney's were at the forefront of cool during the swinging sixties and continue to tailor the finest formal wear to this day. Their bold, elaborate designs, coupled with expert knowledge, place Looney's as London's most trusted and respected tailors.
• Molineux - Worn by Boxers and sportsmen alike, Molineux have catered to the athletically inclined since the 1950s and supply a wide range of muscle shirts, t-shirts and tracksuits.
• Tatt - Tatt, the cheapest of all clothing stores, sell denim and woollen jackets. While an object of distaste to most, many a clothing gem can be found in their pound sales, from the odd tropical shirt to a battered brown leather coat.
• Van Hugendong's - Dutch designers Van Hugendong's set up shop on Savile Row more than twenty five years ago, providing the people of London - and as their girth for rich, contentential tailoring grew - Europe - with exquisite ballroom and upper class party dress. Van Hugendong's specialise in bow-tie suits and tuxedos, all with the signature price sting.• Drug Dealing
Ray will arrange deals with various drug barons and distribute the product through his assets and dealers on the streets. Dealers have statistics that can be viewed from Ray's headquarters, detailing how much gear they are able to push, the heat they are attracting from police and rival gangs, and will show the area Ray has assigned them to work. The more dealing a pusher does, the more experience they gain and the more proficient they become.• Extortion
To extort a shop owner, Ray must first entice the need for protection by smashing an item to pieces, attacking a customer or brandishing a weapon. Once Ray has the full attention of the man in charge, he can set forth his demands for a weekly piece of the earnings with a well-timed threat or through a greater display of aggression. Ray must then protect that business from rivals who will attack it. As well as extorting stores through flexing his own muscles, Ray can track and jump his rivals as they collect from their own protection rackets. Collection routes will appear tabbed on a menu in the gang HQ, and by mesmerizing the day a gang makes their collections on, Ray can attack them and steal their earnings for himself. • Fighting
As a street conditioned fighter with an amateur boxing background, Ray takes a quick and vicious approach to his own personal safety. His hand-to-hand arsenal includes the use of his elbows, headbutts, knock-out blows and mauling his enemies with his teeth, while favouring ducking and weaving as a means of countering enemy attacks. When it comes to intimidating and leaving an impression, Ray will pin and shake a victim until they give in to his demands.A full list of fighting controls, counters and moves can be found here• Girlfriends
Ray does not keep a girlfriend, and as such does not go on dates. Instead, women are approached in bars and clubs with Ray sweet talking his way into their knickers for no-frills sex. Alternatively, encounters of the red-blooded kind can be found with women wanting access to Ray's nightclubs, by attending car-key "swingers" parties in Essex, and through lonely hearts ad's placed in newsagents, though the legitimacy of the latter can be questionable.• Health
As a means of regaining health, Ray will visit various back street doctors who will fix him up for a fee. In addition to the spawn of health packs, these practitioners can be met across the map, and will replace the use of hospitals for treatment. Wounds, such as black eyes, stitched up gashes and re-set noses, will fade away over the course of two game days.• Hookers
In addition to picking up a tom from a street corner, Ray can pay a visit to one of various call girls in the seedy brothels of Soho, fronting up £200 for an hour alone. Such a session will restore his health to full.• Looting
After knocking down a pedestrian, Ray can opt to steal a distinctive item from the demobilized NPC as a means of taking a trophy for boosting his own reputation. This is done by simply keeping locked on to the downed ped and pressing LB/L1 - Ray will swipe an item such as jewellery or clothing and immediately wear it as his own. It will also be stored in his wardrobe for a later date.• Property & Safehouses
Safehouses can be purchased all over the map, varying in degrees of size, style and reclusiveness. Ray may want to purchase a small, grotty terrace in the East End for criminal activity, or a high-rise flat for storing his vast profits, while he may want to keep a luxury boat on the Thames with excellent views of the city or an exclusive penthouse suite as his personal home. Property must now be kitted out with furniture once purchased: Ray can purchase a variety of electronics from Feltz, Panoramic
outlets, or can alternatively pick up goods on the black market. Elaborate, tacky items for show, only serving to boost his ego and show his reputation, can also be bought by Ray - they will automatically spawn in the safehouse placed in an assigned location.• Rampages
Triggering a rampage, Ray will explode into an uncontrollable rage. Given a chaos meter, he will either be supplied with a weapon or be left to mount his own attack through melees and obtaining weapons from targets. The screen will darken around the edges, blocking out all but for that directly in front of you, and will more so fade inward as Ray locks onto a target. When a victim is killed, the darkness will explode into a momentary red hue, only fading when blackness once again centres on the target.Reward: Rage unlocked after twenty five rampages, making Ray temporarily immune to gunfire after the murder of several targets.
Having completed his National Service with the RAF, Ray is capable of piloting Planes and Helicopters.• Grey Market Imports
To further supplement his image, Ray can import vehicles to drive on the streets of Britain. Some of these vehicles may be left hand drive, while others will remain RHD. Some may be grey market specification, unlike their counterparts that appear in traffic having increased performance and better handling. Cars can be bought in from a variety of places, from Asia to Europe and the USA.
Vehicles available to import from abroad are signalled with an * next to their name.
Weapons marked with an * are available to purchase from Screw It DIY outlets located all over the map.

The game features three stand alone television stations, based on BBC1, ITV and Channel 4 respectively.
- Earbenders: (One)
Set in the fictional, chronically miserable East End suburb of Dulford, Earbenders revolves around the extremely dubious habits of it's residents, chiefly the proliferate family who run the local pub, the Bust & Shovel. No less than eight spawn of this family are present in the small span of area the show takes place around, six of which manage to somehow cram themselves into the small living area above their pub. Each episode ends with the traditional running gag of an extremely unfortunate Hit & Run.
The members of the clan are introduced individually; the family matriarch, an extremely diminutive, manipulative old crow with a comically high-pitched voice, her two sons, both suffers of chronic baldness and unusually close to their mother - one of whom harbours feelings for the other brother - two freely promiscuous sisters, scantily clad & tremendously unlucky and an outcast cousin that nobody likes, owing to his tendency to tapdance and speak only in Oliver Twist quotes. The entire episode consists of no more than two murders, three affairs and five shocking plot twists, concluding with the reveal that the two sisters infact aren't that at all but in reality mother and daughter. The daughter runs out of the pub sobbing and straight into the middle of the road, only to promptly be bowled over by an Hawaiian shirt wearing megalomaniac in a sports car.
Centred around the outcast cousin, the concluding episode follows his transformation into the bi-monthly neighbourhood serial killer. Unmasked only when he haunts his grieving cousin by means of donning a Tufty suit, he reveals his desire to dress up in her skimpy undergarments, murder her and have sex with her corpse. Accordingly, she makes a desperate reach for a dubiously formed bust of Prince Albert and crashes it down on his head, killing him. Hysterical, she flees the scene, straight into the speeding path of a Taxi being driven by a familiar Balkan cab driver.
- The Sound Check (One)
Hosted by a bumbling New Romantic, The Sound Check is a topical music broadcast that follows the exploits of popular bands, namely LOVEFIST, a premier NWOBHM group from Scotland. The first portion of the show is centred around an interview feature with LOVEFIST manager James McFarlane, a scheming, mob handed man comparable to the infamous Don Arden. McFarlane at first promotes the huge Beast Fist tour, beginning with a sell out gig in Southend and concluding with a US leg aimed at cracking the States, but later walks off set when rumours of axe-man Dick being a psychotic, drug-addled mess, allegations of connections to the London underworld and underhanded business tactics, and links between the band & zoophilia in the light of their latest release Beast Fist are presented to him. Despite this, the band take to the stage and perform the song, also performing their early classic Dangerous Man, Dead Family.
- The Plod (Two)
Cop show in the vain of The Bill, The Professionals and The Sweeney. Each episode introduces new characters and depicts life within three different levels of the Metropolitan Police Force. The Plod has a very distinctive theme tune - preluded by the sound of a falling door & a scream of "Shut up, slag!" - which Ray likes to hum when taken into custody by the police.
We join a rookie officer on his first day on the job. Shy and timid, he finds himself assigned to a notorious Sergeant, a huge, drunken, northern slab of a man who will take him through the motions of being a copper. Throughout his first day, his mentor introduces him to (in chronological order): extorting sexual favours from prostitutes, the art of police brutality (and how this increases ones credentials for promotion to the much idolised SPG) and bribe taking from the local wide boys. Over a pint in the local, the episode ends with the young rookie breaking the forth wall and addressing the camera directly, talking up the joys of being a police officer and how you too can join the force and make a difference.
The episode revolves around the exploits of London's elite Flying Squad. Lots of car chases, bank robberies and one liners.
The concluding show takes place around two members of the secretive C69 unit, an allegedly leading task force that are an arm of the police force. The two officers in question are extremely cocky and love to brag about their supposedly dangerous lifestyles, especially how they get to drive around London all day in a flash sports car, chatting up tourists... doing absolutely f*ck all. While one officer wears Italian suits, has a cocaine addiction and suffers from insomnia, which often leads to him falling asleep at the wheel of his sports car and mowing down a pedestrian or two, the other fancies himself as a ladies man and loves to brag about his sexual conquests.
- Up North (Three)
Grossly exaggerated depiction of the North/South divide in which the cast members are shown as though they are creatures from an alien world, a perception highlighted by the presence of subtitles. The program highlights the daily exploits of families living in two fictional northern locations, based on Merseyside and Yorkshire respectively. Displayed are remarkable changes in attitudes compared with shows like Earbenders, such as only breeding with close family and livestock opposed to sleeping around town. Both casts often attempt to out-do each other, battling to see who can steal the most cars or down the most pints after hard days graft at t'pit.
- Lookalikes (Three)
Satirical program that features prominent public figures depicted by puppets. Based on Spitting Image.

| It would be cool if you make the gangs like today's gangs in London. |
But it's set in the 80s, gangs were different then.
No, they weren't. London was the same as it is now with the black gangs with the post code sh*t. There was even black gang riots in London in the 80s. There was rarely any biker gangs.
They were completely different.
And the riots weren't gangs, it was just members of the black community in general.
They were gangs. Dark purple bandela in the Broadwater Farm riots and black bandana in the Brixton riots.
There were Turkish gangs, Asian gangs, Black gangs and Albanian gangs but there were NO biker gangs at all (not proper at least!)
