Grand Theft Auto IV

Grand Theft Auto IV Achievements

Driving Mr. Bellic

Unlock the special ability of taxi.   

Throughout the course of the game, you will have the opportunity to make up to five friends. Each friend has certain activities that they favor over others, and through doing social activities with them, they will begin to like you. Once they like you enough, they will offer their unique services to you. To access their special abilities, press --> to open the cell phone menu, to open the phone book, scroll down to your friend's name, press , scroll to their special ability, and press again to ask them for it. If they are available to help you, they will tell you, though sometimes they may be busy, as they have their own lives as well.

Now, there is no rhyme or reason to when your friend will offer their services. Once you have reached the necessary "Like" level, sometime in the future, your friend will give you a call to offer their ability to you, so once you have the correct stats, just be patient.

This particular achievement is unlocked through befriending Roman. He is awake 24 hours a day, and when you have reached a 60% "Like" level from Roman, and will go away if you drop below 15%. See "Liberty City (5)" for advice on what activities will help raise his "Like" level the best.

You can check your progress:
Start--> Stats--> General--> Roman Like

Roman's special ability is that you can call him up and he will send a taxi to pick you up and take you anywhere, free of charge.

**Can be done after completing story mode**

For some reason, this one seems to be glitched, Ive had Roman at 100% like for a while, and have unlocked his taxi ability, and have never received an achievement.

Glitched for me too, since Roman is now "dead" is it actually still possible to get this achievement? I was using his special ability thoughout the game, when I recieved it, but never got the achievement?

Simple. Just take your cousin to a strip club, get a private dance, to him you want to leave, take him back to the cab company, and you should get a call from him later on saying that he would like you to take advantage of the family business.

Difficulty: Easy

This is not possible after "mr and mrs bellic". If u slected to take the deal before. The recommended last chance would be After "diamonds are a girls bestfriend". As always with this game multible saves are recomended. After gettting Romans Likeness to the required likeness. I surggest you wait for his call took around 3-4 minites.

I got this after finishing the main game (going with revenge). I went out with Roman till he reached 100% Like. Then awhile later he called me, unlocking the achievement.

I wasn't even 100% with Roman. All I did was hijack a cab while working for Vlad and he called me.
