Naughty stuff dalam GTA IV
“GRAND THEFT AUTO IV is an open world action adventure game in which the player character is an Eastern European immigrant working for organised crime gangs in a fictitious city in the USA. The game has been rated ’18’ for strong violence, very strong language, very strong sex references and drugs use.
“Violence is a central theme of the game, with the character able to engage on missions which invariably involving killing in return for money and other in-game rewards. The character can gain use of a variety of weapons including machine guns, Molotov cocktails, a serrated knife and a rocket propelled grenade launcher.
“Injuries and death are shown with blood including blood projected onto nearby walls, windscreens and the camera lens. The character is able to attack and kill any other character in the game, including ‘innocent’ non player characters, although this carries a strong risk of being pursued by the police providing a negative consequence for such action.
“The game includes several uses of very strong language and frequent use of strong language. The very strong language occurs within ‘cut scenes’ in which the story and character development take place, in spoof television episodes and during a stand up comedy routine.
“Sex references also occur during cut scenes, including references to strong sexual behaviour. During gameplay the character can pick up prostitutes and pay for three different levels of service. What follows is an un-detailed portrayal of masturbation, fellatio and intercourse. The character can also visit lap dancing clubs and request a private dance. While the game contains sexualised dancing and the portrayal of sex, there is no sexualised nudity.
“Reference is made to drugs trafficking and several cut scenes portray cocaine snorting. There is also a satirical reference to the domestic production of a hard drug, but it does not contain the detail necessary to reproduce this in the real world.
“GRAND THEFT AUTO IV has been classified at ’18’ and is appropriate for adults aged 18 and above only.”Xbox 360

Project Gotham Racing 4
* Challenge Pack – FREE
* Premium Challenge Pack – 400 points (GBP 3.40 / EUR 4.80)
And what of the new cars? The free download offers just one – the hydrogen-powered 2007 Peugeot Flux, taken from the podium of the 2007 Peugeot International Design Competition. Those with 400 Points to spare also get a 2008 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible Concept, 2007 Volkswagen Golf GTI W12-650, 1987 BMW M3 E30 DTM, 2007 Ferrari 430 Scuderia, 2008 Honda S2000 CR, and the 2008 Callaway C16 Speedster. Bike fans can choose from the 2007 Yamaha YZF-R1, 1995 Aprilia RS 250 and the 1998 Aprilia RSV 1000 Tuono R. It’s a nice varied line-up, covering sexy new sports cars and in-demand classics, and considering the price of additional vehicles for rival racing franchises, 400 Points represents excellent value.
Forza Motorsport 2
* – March Car Pack – 400 Points (GBP 3.40 / EUR 4.80)
Also jostling for garage space within the 55MB download are the 2008 Audi S5, 2007 Audi TT Coupe S-Line, 1971 BMW 3.0 CSL E09, 2008 BMW E92 M3, 1989 Ferrari F40 Competizione, 1996 Ferrari F50 GT, 2007 Ferrari 430 Scuderia, 2007 Lamborghini Murcielago LP640, 2006 Maserati MC12 Corsa, 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X GSR and the very tasty 2008 Porsche 911 GT2 (997).

Test Drive Unlimited
* – Test Drive Collection Volume 6 – 350 Points (GBP 2.98 / EUR 4.20)
This latest pack offers six cars for your 350 Points, all of which must then be purchased from the dealers using your in-game money. For fans of cut-and-pasted lists, the cars are: Nissan 350Z Roadster 2004, Audi A4 Touring Car, Cadillac Sixteen, Dino 246 GTS, Triumph Dayton 995i, Pontiac Solstice and – ooooh – the Lamborghini Diablo GT. The Nissan Roadster is also available as a separate freebie download, for the financially challenged.
* – Turbo Boost expansion pack – 350 Points (GBP 2.98 / EUR 4.20)
Additional downloads for Live Arcade titles can struggle to offer genuine value, considering the low cost of the original games, but with this grab-bag of new content Gripshift has set a pretty high bar for others to match.
Eight new race tracks and eight new multiplayer arenas are available, which already justifies the 350 Point price tag as far as I’m concerned. However, on top of that you also get a new online mode – Reverse Tag, in which the person who is “it” must keep away from the other players – and three new mini-games. Penguin Bowling is pretty much how it sounds. You hurl your car into penguins, who stand there like monochrome bowling pins awaiting your onslaught. It’s a little bit Yeti Sports, but amusing all the same. Playground provides a stunt-flavoured bowl of ramps, secrets and stars to rampage around, but it’s Snaker that I can see becoming a new personal favourite. It’s the light-cycles from Tron given a Gripshift makeover, a winning combination that is predictably hard to put down.
You also get 18 new music tracks, rounding out a very generously proportioned download for an extremely low price.
