Decisions

During the Main Story you will be asked to make a number of decisions, most of which will significantly affect gameplay later on in the game. WARNING: There are major spoilers in this guide; this list has written in chronological order, so be sure to only read down as far as you have been in the game.


Mission Encountered: Ivan the Not So Terrible
Options: Either Spare or Execute Ivan.
Spare Ivan: Mission ends; Ivan appears as a Random Character after the "Actions Speak Louder Than Words" mission.
Execute Ivan: Mission ends, Ivan does not appear as a Random Character later on in the game.


Mission Encountered: Ruff Rider
Options: Either Spare or Execute Cherise.
Spare Cherise: Cherise appears as a Random Character after the "The Holland Play" mission.
Execute Cherise: Cherise does not appear as a Random Character later on in the game.


Mission Encountered: Holland Nights
Options: Either Spare or Execute Clarence.
Spare Clarence: Clarence appears as a Random Character after the "Blood Brothers" mission.
Execute Clarence: Clarence does not appear as Random Character later on in the game.


Mission Encountered: The Holland Play
Options: Execute Playboy X, Execute Dwayne.
Execute Playboy X: Unlock Playboy X's loft apartment (complete with pool table, parking spaces and the outfit from GTAIII), unlock Dwayne's friendship.
Execute Dwayne: $25,000.


Mission Encountered: Blood Brothers

Execute Francis: Attend Francis' funeral in "Undertaker".


Mission Encountered: That Special Someone
Options: Either Spare or Execute Darko.
Consequence: There is no affect on gameplay, you simply hear a different dialogue as you take Roman to Brucie's place. The Execution scene is worth watching though, and besides, you've come this far, so why would you waste the opportunity?


Mission Encountered: Finale (just after That Special Someone)
Options: Take Jimmy's Deal, or seek Revenge.
Deal: The Finale mission strand will take place as follows: If the Price is Right => Mr. and Mrs. Bellic => A Revenger's Tragedy.

You're missing a few minor ones. I know there is one in "Portrait of A Killer" (Your target is a choice), and "Late Checkout" (Old Rabbi dude). A few others exist as well, I think.

I've checked the two you've mentioned and as far as I can tell you have to kill the targets to complete the mission? They don't affect gameplay at all anyway do they?

wait, francis will only clear your wanted level once?! that sounds worthless... maybe i will date kiki then in my second go-through...

I walked away from the guy on 'portrait' and that passed the mission, but I don't think it makes any difference at all to anything. Just depends if you want to be generous or not.

No, you can do it multiple times. Well, I've done it multiple times. I think Duffers is wrong on that one v.gif

I didn't even know you could spare Clarence, I just insta-shot him as soon as I saw him

Oh well, I don't have time to not kill people

Oh, I thought you guys were listing all of them. Nevermind, then.

earn one-time ability to call Francis


I think he means that you can only get one chance to getting this ability from Francis..

meaning, you don't have to build a relationship with him in order to get the ability... that's makes a ton more sense, lol... well good then, i didn't want to date kiki again...

It's a one-time ability as in you can only do this ability once. As soon as you ring Francis to get rid of your Wanted Level, he disappears from your phone... In other words, you can only do this once.


Comment by Deesai posted on 05th Nov 2008:

no thats not true, you can call him whenever, just like you can with kiki, its actually a good idea to have them both just in case. i remember lots of times when im being followed by cops i'll call francis and get his voicemail so i call kiki instead. its best to use their abilities sparingly, like once every few in-game days to avoid them turning you down. kiki does this to me every so often even when i only have a three star wanted level, but as i said earlier you can call francis multiple times that would be stupid if you could only do it once.

It's true, Late Checkout does allow you to spare the Old Rabbi in the kitchen. However it doesn't affect anything except your own morality. biggrin.gif


Comment by Vastet posted on 13th May 2009:

Francis can be called infinately, until you finish the game. Then he vanishes forever. So you're still going to have to date Kiki if you want that ability after the story is over.
