Hint: Health recovery:
If you have been getting damaged badly by enemies and are close to dying, walk up next to a wall. Your character will lean up against it in order to recover. With each breath your character takes, part of his bullet holes disappear until he is fully recovered. This may take a minute -- make sure that no enemies are attacking you.
Richard Webster.

If you are very badly, find a car and get into it. Drive around a little bit. Get out and your character should be feeling slightly better. If he is still hurting, drive around some more.

Hint: Small boost:
On certain cars you can get a small boost of acceleration. When you are stopped, hold the handbrake (R1) and hold X. Keep holding it until the car starts to move forward, even though you are still pressing the brake. Once it starts to move forward, release R1. The car should rocket forward. On some cars, the wheels will just keep spinning and your car will slowly accelerate. This works well with the station wagon and the Saab.

Hint: Lose pursuing vehicles:
When driving in a police or a gang chase, when you see the police car rubbing your car on the side, immediately break. The car will go forward and slide. Then, continue on your mission. Although it will not help that much, you will still lose the car sometimes. You can also ram the police car when it swerves into a stop.

Hint: Hidden vehicles:
You can find some hidden vehicles in the parks of London, such as a sooty van (Little Suzuki van with grass in the back) and a very fun golf cart parked behind huts and bushes around the parks.

Select Free Roam mode once it is unlocked and make your way onto Oxford Street from the start point. Head west past the marble arch and onto Bayswater Road (use the map supplied with the game for road names). Follow Bayswater Road westward as far as the game will allow you to go, then turn left at the blockade onto the Hyde Park Inner Road. The Hyde Park Inner Road U-bends back around to travel through the center of Hyde Park at this point. At the back of this U-bend is an open gate. Go through it, and parked outside a mansion is a Nissan Skyline GTR and a TVR. In the garage opposite the mansion is a Lotus and a go-cart.
Richard Webster.

To get the Saab 9X concept car and a Triad Gang Car (souped-up Honda) in Free Roam mode, in the mission where Carter infiltrates Jolson's warehouse, go to Chinatown (located in Soho). Go down into the underground garage (the same car park where the Triads and Yardies have a gang war). The position of the cars varies on each floor.
Darren Holden.

To find a Tank in Free Roam mode, travel east along Birdcage Walk (near Buckingham Palace). There are some open gates on your right about half way along (just after the big white building on the same side). There is a small one-man tank on a plinth just inside the gates. You can shoot from the turret by pressing L3 (horn). It catches cars and people on fire.

To find a Lotus Esprit in Free Roam mode, drive west along Marylebone Road (above where it says Marylebone in red letters on the map). About half way along you will see a green dome on your right. Just after this is a small road on your right, which runs parallel to this road (it has Burger King and Vodafone shops on it). At the end of this small road is a subway entrance. Behind and to the right of this there is an alley next to the HSBC bank. The car is in this alley.

Another Nissan Skyline can be found in an alley behind some boxes in Bermondsey Street, near the Tower Bridge.

To find a Mk II (the car that you start in when you enter Free Roaming mode), can be found in the left hand side of a car park in St. Thomas Street, near the Tower Bridge.

In the "Speakers Corner" of Hyde Park (the corner closest to the Marble Arch) a Golf Cart can be found behind some bushes in an open grassy area. In car park of the building nearby is a Royal Parks gardeners pickup van, with grass and plant cuttings in the back.

To get a modified Peugeot 306, drive west along Horseferry Road (near the Lambeth Bridge). You will see a blue colored alley blocked off with some boxes on your right. Follow the alley and go down into the abandoned multi-story car park. At the bottom is a boy racer Peugeot 306 behind a large container. It has a bodykit, neon lights and a huge sound system in the back.

To get a Ford Transit, find one of the jumps around the city (for example, St. James's Street, near Green Park). There are Ford Transit vans parked in front of them.

Use the following trick to find the Go-Kart, Lotus, M250, Skyline, and TVR. The cars can only be found in free roam mode. Start by making a complete U-turn. Drive straight until you get to the T-intersection, then make a right turn. Go forward until you reach a four way intersection. Once again, go to the left. Drive perfectly straight until you see a large opening with a strange building with bars on it. Turn left, then take the first right turn. Next, drive perfectly forward. Go until the road splits (straight or right). Go straight. Soon, there will be a island with grass. Go over it and into an opening in the wall. Note: The Go-Kart and the Lotus is in the garage.

A Maserati Coupe can be found, only in the North American version of the game. In the same garage that you found the Modified Pugoet 206 is another sports car with stripes on next to it. This car looks closest to a Maserati, but its front resembles a Ford Mustang. Its performance characteristics are close to the other sports cars in the game such as the TVR.

To find a TVR Cerbera, go in the gas station near the warehouse (the one near the top of the map). It is behind the pay station. This is the car you get from Jolson's garage.

In free roam mode, you can find a Mercedes Brabus between Eros and Trafalgar Square. You will find a couple of triads driving in it. Kill them both, pick up the AK and rag it to the ground.
david schofield.

To find a Go-Cart in free roam mode, go to the garage that has the Lotus Esprite. You will find a racing Go-Cart behind there. If it is not there, go somewhere else and return.
Ryan Powell.

In free roam mode, go to the underground car park in the China Town area. Proceed down to the bottom level to find a new Mini Cooper.

To get the TVR, Skyline, GoKart, and Lotus, start in free roam mode. After starting, take the first left, then the next left and follow the road for a long time. At the end of the road are red and white concrete barriers. Follow the barriers to the end then take a right. In the blue wall will be a opening with a narrow dirt road. Follow the road to find the Skyline, TVR, GoKart (in the garage) and the Lotus (also in the garage).

Hint: Catch cars on fire:
When attempting to catch a car on fire, aim the front with the pistol. Aim as low as you can while still hitting the car. It will smoke after about ten shots. After another few, the car will catch fire. Note: When using AK47, the car will sometimes jump a few feet in the air while erupting in flame.
Michael Laufman.

Hint: Car repair:
Damage to your car will be repaired after an intermission sequence is triggered.

Hint: Big air:
Obtain an MKII (the car you start with in free ride mode) and go very fast along the Hyde Park inner road. While speeding, hit one of the cement dividers in the middle of the road and your car should fly up in the air. This also works if you hit one of the poles in the dividers at high speed on some of the other roads.

Go to the old appearing reddish-brown building at St. Pancreas Station (along Maryborle Road). You will see a type of loop or drop off circle in front of it. At the point where it turns back around is a staircase. Drive over the staircase. Drive up the sidewalk a few blocks, turn around, and drive back up the staircase at full speed. Your car will go flying through the air, and perhaps hit the other buildings if done fast enough.

Hint: Bounce car in air:
Steal the old 60's looking sedan or coupe and drive to the stairway at the reddish-brown building at St. Pancreas Station. Drive off the top of the staircase at full speed. When you hit the ground, your car will bounce back up into the air about 20 feet.

This should work in any part of the game that has the little medians with the small green, yellow, and white barrels on them. Get a car and accelerate using the Right Analog-stick instead of X. This allows you to accelerate faster. Hit those medians dead center and watch the car lift about 20 feet in the air, then hit the ground and bounce back up again. Also, on some streets you will see a tow truck parked on the side of the road with a ramp-like flatbed on the back. Try going up it very fast in certain cars. It may make it up the ramp. Other cars will just crash into the back of the flatbed Note: You have to hit it more to the right side of the ramp.

Hint: Flip car over:
If you have a fast car, look for a sort of statue in the Chinatown Soho area. It is small and in the middle of a sidewalk next to a one way road and has some steps around it. Gain some speed and hit the steps at an angle without hitting the statue itself. Your car should flip through the air.

Hint: Donuts:
In most rear wheel drive cars, for example the Lotus Esprit, you can get the car to donut in circles by applying full lock on the steering and accelerate with the Right Analog-stick as hard as possible. Then, hold R3. Use this to make clouds of smoke.

Hint: Aboard The Sol Vita mission:
A way of getting past all the gang members on deck is to go to the steps. Do not go up them. To the left, you will see a tall crane. Attached to the crane is a platform of tanks (oil drums). Go around the back of them and you will see a gap you can get into. Once you are in it, an intermission sequence will start. You will be lifted past all of the gang members. By the time you are put down, they will mostly be dead. The crane will drop you where you need to be. Go up the little steps to get into the ship.
Alex Dayneswood.

Hint: Do The World A Favour mission: Kill patient:
After you stop talking to the man laying in the bed, when out of the room kill the men in he hallway. Then, walk next door to the room you walked out of. There will be a man laying in bed. You can shoot him. Aim at his chest and shoot, then you will hear a long beep.

Hint: Land Of Hope And Glory mission:
When you are escaping the Sol Vita and come down the stairs at the start, on the left hand side there is an explosion which brings down a staircase blocking your way through. However, first kill the men in front of you, then the man on the walkway above the wreckage. Then, instead of having to go through the package room, where you fight Harry for Hammond, go up to the wreckage. There will be a part where the floorway meets the hand rails. If you roll in the correct location, Carter will roll straight through the wreckage, avoiding the package room area and saving time and health.

Hint: The Prodigal Son mission: Steal TVR:
Get to Charlie's manor. After you go up the first set of stairs and are outside, shoot the two gang members and turn right as soon as you get up the stairs. Then in the hall, turn left to find a TVR in a garage. Complete the mission, then return into the manor (which will now be empty of all gang members). Get in the TVR with Yasmin. The garage will open, and you can drive away with it. Note: There is one woman in the manor just when you walk in who is unarmed and says "Hammond, I've been wanting to talk to you".

Hint: Free roam mode: Get to Mansion:
Make a full 180 degree turn, then go straight. Take the first left at the fork. Go straight and make a right turn at the four way intersection. Drive straight, but keep to the left. You will eventually see a large empty space with a strange gate with bars on it. Take a left turn at the gate, then right, then stay to the left. There will there will be a hole in the wall. Enter the hole to find the mansion.
The Pupster.

Hint: Free roam mode: Gravel driveway:
Go forward, take the first left, and go to the end of that street. Then, take another left and drive until you see the forest part of town. Take the first left then your first right. Drive forward and there will be a turn. However, on the wall there is a gate. Go inside and follow the road. You will find a Nissan Skilyne (white), TVR Cerebra (bluish purple), Lotus Elise (white), and Go-Cart (blue). Note: When you go to driveway take a right turn when you see the Nissan. There will be a wall with an opening. The Lotus and Go-Cart are inside.

Hint: Turn signals:
In free roam mode, for added realism you can use your indicators (turn signals). Press L1 to indicate right and L2 to indicate left.
Darren Holden.

Note: The turn signals will turn off automatically after you make your turn. If you try the turn signals and they are not signaling for an intentional turn, you can always turn them off by pressing R1 again for your right signal or R2 again for the left.
Andrew Doerrer.

Hint: Tires:
Shoot tires out on any car. If you drive hard enough on the tires, they will fall off and you will be riding on rims with flying sparks.
Steven Wright.

Hint: Drive with no tires:
When walking around in free roam mode, stop a car and shoot the hood. After a few seconds it will catch fire and the person in it will run out screaming in flames. When the fire dies out, you can get in the burnt car and drive. Since the fire destroys the tires, sparks will appear when you move.

Hint: Overturn vehicle:
This works best with the Daihatsu Van, the Ford Transit or the Hiace people carrier. It also works with police cars, but is rare. In free roam mode, go to St. Pancras station (Kings Cross) and go to the area where the stairs are located. Go all the way to the gas station, and drive towards the steps at full throttle. When you get to the top of the steps, swerve left then turn right when you get to the elevated stair-looking area. When you get to the top of them, turn left again so that the car spins the opposite way. It should either flip over or hit the station wall. If you manage to get it over, shoot the radiator on the car until it catches on fire; you will get better effects of the flames.

Hint: Gas tank kills:
Shoot a gas tank when an enemy is nearby to easily kill them by burning.

Hint: Pistol whip:
If you have a gun, are close enough to somebody, and press Square to shoot at them, your character may whip them with the gun instead. Other people such as gang members or cops also do this to you.

Hint: Better weapon accuracy:
Use this trick with inaccurate weapons at a longer such, as the AK. Instead of auto-aiming for an enemy. use manual aim. Manual is perfectly accurate. Use this technique when shooting an enemy at medium range, or when an enemy is hiding behind an object.
Jay Geldenhuys.

Hint: Steal spike strip:
Get to a police roadblock and press R1 + Square to pick up the spike strip. You can use it against the police or gang cars. This can be put in as many times as needed to get multiple spike strips.

Hint: Watch Layla dance:
In the level where you have to find Layla, do not shoot at or near her. Do not walk too close or she will be shot in the crossfire.

Hint: Undercover police:
Undercover police drive around in white Lexus cars. The are difficult to find because the car is unmarked and they wear ordinary clothes. if they see you getting up to anything you should not be doing, they will get out of their car and start shooting you. One of them has a pistol and the other an AK47.

Hint: Police roadblock:
Commit a crime until the police chase you. Then, badly damage their car or shoot them. They will soon set up a roadblock with two police vans, a few cars, cones, and a spike strip.

Hint: Police van:
Get the police to chase after you until they set up a roadblock. At the road block will be two police vans. Quickly get out of your car and get in the van. Note: The police will shoot at you and your car. To activate the siren, press L3.

Hint: Escape from police quickly:
Drive fast along the road, then do a 180. The police will also do a 180. As soon as they drive over to your car, do another 180 and speed off down the road.

Hint: Driving through police road blocks:
When the police have set up a roadblock to stop you, it will appear as follows. police van (left side), police cars (middle left), spike strip (middle right), police van (right side). When approaching the road block, slam the brakes then quickly get in one of the vehicles blocking the road. Turn it around and speed off. The police car chasing you will crash into the roadblock. Note: When in a police vehicle blocking the road, be careful not to drive over the spike strips. Also, when you stop your vehicle or get out at the roadblock, the police will start shooting you.

Hint: Avoid getting arrested or shot by the police:
When being chased by police on foot, get in any vehicle. The police will not be able to shoot or arrest. Note: The police will only shoot at your vehicle if you have committed a lot of crime. Beware of undercover police, as one of them has an AK47 which will put your car up in smoke.

When you attract a lot of police attention and cannot find a quick way of escape, grab a civilian. The police will stop shooting and look as if they try to plead with you. They will not fire at all, even if you start killing people. Note: This only works if you are facing the police or are within 35 to 50 feet away from them. This trick does not work against gangs.

To get police to stop shooting at you, take a hostage and face the cops. They will immediately surrender.
Dylan Greene.

Hint: Shooting around corners:
Put your back against a wall. When you are at an edge of a doorway press Square to shoot around the corner without getting shot.

Hint: DC Carter moves:

Knock out hostage: With a gun, press X to get a hostage then press Square.
Kick hostage: While unarmed, X to get a hostage then press Square.
Kick, arrest, and leave them on the floor: Press X or Square.
Jamie Hinchlliff.

Hint: Mark Hammond moves:

Shoot hostage: With a gun, press X to get a hostage, then press Square.
Break hostage's neck: While unarmed, press X to get a hostage, then press Square.

Hint: Pedestrian commentary:
Walk down the sidewalk and listen carefully. You can sometimes hear people saying "Its that guy, Mark Hammond!" or "Its the guy who killed his wife!". If you are in a shootout with the police, you can sometimes hear them say "Stop this now Hammond!"

Hit the railings alongside the road and someone will say "I've just polished that"
charlie jolson.

Glitch: Game crash:
There are two versions of the game. The new version is edited for content and is missing the Snowhill level from the original release. If you try to use a memory card with saved information from the original version and try to load it with the new version, the game will crash repeatedly.

Glitch: Stuck in cargo hole:
When you are playing as Mark Hammond and are on the Boat Sol Vita, kill all the gang members on the deck and go around the back way. You will find a forklift on that side. Along the deck is a railing with a large cargo hole on the other side. Repeatedly jump and dive against the railing. It will catapult you onto the cargo hole. You will not be able to get off or over unless you restart the level.
Eric Williams.

Glitch: Walk around the world:
Hit the barrier at the end of Wesminister Street and Buckingham Palace Road at the correct angle and you can get through and walk for miles. It is full of clouds, and you will suddenly reappear at another end of the game. It may take a lot of attempts to get through, as getting the correct angle can be quite difficult.
Kobirul Ali.

During the intermission sequence in The Land of Hope and Glory mission where Charlie goes nuts, hold X and press Left Analog-stick Forward. After the level loads, Frank will be walking on clouds. Note: Do not try to roll while there or the game may freeze. Also, this may require several attempts.

Glitch: Floating and invisible people:
Drive down any street in free roam mode. Look up at the sky a little closer, and you will see people walking in mid-air while you are in your vehicle. While driving on the sidewalk, in some places you might see a person just appear when you hit them, who was not there before.
Collin Beishir.

Look up when you out and in a vehicle. You will see floating people moving very quickly.

Glitch: Instant death:
Walk down any street that has cars. Do not go in front of the car, but go to the side of it. When the car is almost by you, press Circle. Your character will automatically fall over and die.

Glitch: Fireproof drivers:
In free-aim mode, shoot the hood of a car to catch it on fire from a long distance. When it catches fire, wait until it dies out. Wait until the black smoke floats out then go next to the car. The car will be totally burned, but the driver is not. The driver will continue driving on invisible tires. However if you get in the car, you will be riding on rims with sparks.

Glitch: Sink through ground:
When at the tank location, make a right. Keep driving straight until you reach some water. Turn left down the first alley with a black post. Then make a right turn, then a left turn. Keep driving until you see an overpass. Get on the left sidewalk and drive towards the wanted sign. You should sink into the sidewalk.
