Niko Bellic, a European immigrant, arrives at Liberty City at the invitation of his cousin Roman, who advertised a fictitious lifestyle in America that included a mansion, exotic sport cars and beautiful promiscuous women. Upon his arrival Niko finds out that everything Roman told him via the Internet was a mere lie. In reality, his cousin runs a slummy taxi depot, thrives in a small one bedroom apartment and is constantly hindered by the presences of greedy debt collectors; and in this case scenario, Niko is Roman's guardian angel. Niko mercilessly hoards away the loan-sharks while the evils of Liberty City begin to surround both of the Bellics, and ugly figures from Niko's past begin to catch up with him. In a city where there is no such thing as peace and sincerity is rare and indistinguishable, Niko Bellic truly ponders the deeper meaning of the American Dream. Written by

In the game, Alderney is based on New Jersey. Being that it would involve a different state than Liberty City this area would not be patrolled by the LCPD. However, while the appearance of the police cars remains the same when you attract a wanted level in Alderney, the police uniforms do in fact change and differ from the other areas in the game and resemble the uniforms of the New Jersey State Police.

In "She's A Keeper", while Gordon is moving Grace Ancelotti from the safe house to the trunk of the car, he yells out that Grace bit him. How could Grace bite Gordon when her mouth is gagged, her hands are tied behind her back (so she can't grab him to bite him), his hands are on her waist and he's behind her the whole time? See more
