I normally start with the story of what the game is about, but if you saw
the opening cinema, then you know what it's about.  Before tackling any
missions, I suggest that you learn the island that the missions are on
before you begin them, that way you will do better in the game.  When
I give directions I will use North, South, East, and West.  It will also
be easier if you go and get as many hidden packages as you can as early as
you can.  The reason for that is that you make very many enemies very
quickly in this game.  Okay enough rambling let's play.  By the way, I 
will have everything in this game divided up by the island that it is on.


"Give Me Liberty"
After the opening cinema, you are on the now blown up Callahan Bridge with
8-Ball.  He will tell you of a safe house he knows.  Just follow the map
to get there.  Get in the car and take 8-Ball to the hideout.  He will also
introduce you to your first "business associate."


"Luigi's Girls"  $1,500
Your first mission so to speak.  What you need to do is get a car (you
already have one), and go to the green dot on your map.  Pick up Misty
and bring her back to the club.

Note:  After this mission I suggest that you do the off road mission for
Portland Island and then go after some of the hidden packages.

"Don't Spank Ma Bitch Up!"  $4,000
First go get the bat in front of Luigi's place.  Then drive to the green
dot on the map.  After he's dead, get in the car and go to the Pay 'N'
Spray, it's shown onSpray, it's shown onSpray, it's shown onSpray, it'sls"  $2,000 
to $6,000
Get a car and get Luigi's ladies to the Old School Hall.  The ladies are
on the map.  Get at least 4 of them there, but the more you get there, the
more money you get.


"Mike Lips' Last Lunch"  $10,000
Drive to the red dot on your radar and get the car with the arrow.  Next
go to 8-Ball's Bomb Shop.  You'll see it on the map.  Then park the car
where you found it, and arm the bomb then get out of the car and run.

"Farewell 'Chunky' Lee Chong"  $10,000
Get a piece and go to the dot on your map.  Kill the henchmen that attack
you and then take out Chunky.  Just try to get him before he gets to his
car.  If he gets to his car, then you have to chase him down.  Very hard.

"Van Heist"  $20,000
Go to Greasy Joe's Cafe and get the Linerunner, then go to the red dot on
your map.  Keep ramming the van until the drivers bail then get in and 
drive it to the docks.  This sounds pretty easy, but the cops get

"Cipriani's Chauffeur"  $30,000
Take Tony to the laundry in Chinatown like he wants.  When he comes
running back to the car, floor it and take him to Momma's Restaurant.

"Dead Skunk In the Trunk"  $10,000
From the description this sounds pretty easy right?  Wrong!  Go to Greasy
Joe's Cafe and get the car and drive as fast as you can to the crusher by
8-Ball's.  Oh yeah, and the Ferrelli Brothers are out to kill you too.

"The Getaway"  $30,000
Go get a good car preferably a Mafia Sentinel.  Now go to the dot on your
map and pick up Joey's guys.  Take them to the pink dot on the map.  After 
you leave the bank, head through the alley dead ahead to the north and
then go to the Pay 'N' Spray.  Then drop the guys off.  Easy mission.


"Taking Out the Laundry"  $20,000
Yep.  You guessed it.  Tony is going to be sending you after the Triads.
You can do this the game's way, or the easy way.  Easy way is to go and
Jack the laundry vans (red dots on map) and take them to the crusher.

"The Pick-Up"  $10,000
Get a car and go to the blue dot on the map.  As soon as you touch the
money, the Triads attack you.  Once you have killed all of the Triads
take the money back to Tony's.

"Salvatore's Called A Meeting"  $15,000
Go get the Limo at Joey's place and get Joey there too.  Then go pick up
Luigi at his place, and then get Tony at his place.  After you have Tony,
the Triads will attack.  Just dodge them and go to Salvatore's place.

"Triads and Tribulations"  $30,000
Take the suits and get a car.  Now go to the 3 green dots on the map and
kill the guys with the arrows over them.  End of mission.  If your suits
get wasted, who cares.

"Blow Fish"  $30,000
Drive to 8-Ball's place and pick up the Trashmaster.  Then CAREFULLY drive
to the Triad Fish Factory on the south side of Portlato the Triad Fish Factory on 
the south side of Portlato the Triad Fish Factory on the south side of Portlato 
the Triad Fish Factory on the south side of Portlato the Triad Fish Factory on the 
south side of PoER JOBS
