- Added Time of Day. Some missions have to be performed at exact times during the day.

- Weather and Handling Changes - thunder, lightning, for, rain - makes road slippery, affects car handling, and also visibility.

- Streets are populated with workers and businessmen during the day and people dressed for the clubs, drunks, criminal seedy types at night. Streets are obviously more dangerous at night.

- Players work their way through gang hierarchies

- Wanted Levels 1- 6 - cops, swat teams, FBI, the army

- Drive-By Shootings

Vehicles:
