Besides the main missions provides a number of additional tasks. They can be obtained, for example, if you sit in a certain car or to get to a specific point on the map. As additional and basic tasks sometimes not devoid of subtle humor (parody).
The main character can control ground and air transport, run, walk, jump. Unfortunately, many users, the character can't swim. For "showdown" provides an Arsenal, however, it is possible to "defer" to the side and go in the melee.
The character can freely move around the city, to fight, to wreak havoc, steal cars and perform other actions. There is only one caveat — to unlock new areas and challenges, you will have to go according to the script and to perform multiple missions.
Criminal activity character inevitably attracts the attention of the police. Depending on the "severity" of the acts in pursuit may be sent as a single patrol and an army with tanks, helicopters.
