Following the tradition of previous Grand Theft Auto games, Grand Theft
Auto IV has cheat codes that restore your health, change the weather,
and spawn weapons or vehicles. The Xbox 360 version also features
achievements, Easter eggs, and glitches that make carjacking more fun
than it should be.
Note: These cheats apply to the Xbox 360 version.

- Repeat this trick as many time as you please.
To see the "heart" of Liberty City:
- After you have access to Happiness Island, find the helicopter tours and take a helicopter.
- Fly the helicopter to the Statue of Liberty and jump out at the statue's feet.
- Go around the platform until a door appears with signs on both sides that read "No Hidden Content Here."
