Grand Theft Auto: New Zealand
Grand Theft Auto: New Zealand (Aotearoa, in Maori, pronounced: Mouldy), also known as Grund Thuft Aito, Niw Zieland, is a computer and video game created by Rockstar Games and published by the Catholic Church (USA) in 1997/1998. It is the first in the extremely popular Grand Theft Auto series that has thus far spanned eight standalone games, and one expansion pack for the original.
The game portrays John 'Fail' Key, a once successful MP for the Fail Party, who has been forced out of the party hierarchy. Most of New Zealand seems to want John dead. His only option is to fight back and take it himself(at the expense of the NZ Tax Payer).
The game kicks off after John has just been investigated by the police and kicked out of the party for corruption. You start doing missions for local South Auckland street gangs, eventually working up to do jobs for the Mongrel Mob, and finally the most powerful criminal organisation in the country-The National Party.
John's early missions include protecting police officers from rape convictions,distributing anti-Green pamphlets at the behest of the Exclusive Brethren and selling hemp for uh, clothing purposes to Helen clarke.
Game activities largely involve carjacking. The player may use various strategies and methods, to break into to vehicles, although by far the preferred method by players is simply brute force (BBQ tongs) and extortion ("If you don't give me your car, I'll read you the Auckland Regional Council's draft annual plan - in full. WITH Appendices"). John can find the draft annual plan in the mailbox of his dingy 350 dollars-a-week-appartment in the Auckland CBD, right at the start of the game, giving him a powerful weapon for the early part of the game.
Once a vehicle is obtained, the player may choose to use the vehicle as one's own, add light bars and dash lights to it or disintegrate it and use the parts to modify one's original car. Players may get rid of a car at any time by giving it to a scrapyard, driving it into the Avon river (for Te Reo), or burning it in Manakau City (for Rubin). Due to the fact that the first option allows the player to be caught by local authorities it is not often practiced.
John - John is the main character. Originally a successful MP for Mangere for the Labour Party, a dodgy deal (not actually his fault or doing) with some illegal immigrants found him framed for corruption, and relegated to being an independent MP. Taito has since become a mercenary and hired gun, willing to take on whatever job the powers that be give him. Nonetheless, he is haunted by a burning desire for revenge against Helen Clark.
Helen - The (EX) Prime Minister of New Zealand and the Don of the Labour Party. Fearing John's popularity, she had him framed for corruption. She later blackmails him into doing odd jobs for the party against his will. She is completely ruthless and shows no compassion, though she has a soft spot for Winston.
Don- Original leader of the National Party, he was character assassinated by John, on orders from his underling Key and Helen. Was rumoured to have some connections with the the exclusive Brethren.
"The Key"- A lieutenant in the National Party gang, a deal with John and Helen sees him manuoevre to the top, removing his old boss, Don. Howver, he proves to be equally ruthless, and by the end of the game, Helen and him are locked in a deadly struggle for the future of the nation.
Mafu Whaka-A south Auckland Gangster who supplies john with weapons at the start who later dies from john killing him.
Kalao Whaka - the First person you date in the game.She is mafus sister

Kayla Ramer - the 14 year old you date who is the 3rd

During the game, John will face various gangs. One of the first gangs faced by the player is the Mongrel Mob, a brutal gang full of the toughest Maoris and Half Castes in New Zealand. They are known for their treacherous gang activity and are a force to be reckoned with. Often seen roaming around with bulldogs and wearing their patches (Except in Wanganui where they're banned). They are enemies of the Black Power though they have some ties. A similar gang is the Black Power, however they are seen more often on bikes, they normally wear black glasses and have dreads. John got in a rakus with them over a Rugby game and they are not too fond of him but currently don't care too much to be bothered.
Other gangs include Exclusive Brethren - A ruthless gang with a vendetta against the Labour Party. John does a few missions for them, including delivering pamphlets smearing Helen Clark.

The White Hands - Made up of Uruk Hai leftovers from the filming of the Lord of the Rings movies, these extras were flown in and left here to starve and fend for themselves after principal filming ended.

Several landmarks exist throughout the game, including some unique ones. One Tree Hill, for example, allows the player to take a chainsaw to the tree. Another landmark is the "Hobbit Town" area and the Constantly erupting national park. It smells as bad as the name suggests.There is also the Wasp Nest Which resembles the bee hive and The Sky Tower
Food and drink
During gameplay, John must eat and drink to replenish energy. There are several supermarkets, including Pak N Sava (spelled "Pakansaahfa", after the Maori word for "Burp") which is the liquor store for the characters in the game. ("Oh god it's so yellow"). The second most popular is Food World, which while it claims to be "First in Food", it isn't in prices. For those quick liquor stops, the most convenient is usually LiquorWorld drive through liquor stores, designed for times when customers are too drunk to leave the vehicle.Also Far-car is a great car shop.
The most common fast food chain in New Zealand is, of course, McRonalds. Georgie Pie, on the other hand, claims to be "Your Favourite Family Restaurant", but most of them have since closed and been converted into McRonalds themselves. Other favorites, such as Kenfucky fried Chicken and Pasta Hut can also be found all over the country.And other stores like subzero.
Retail stores allow the player to buy other supplies, such as weapons,Clothes,Food and drugs and more. There are no Wal-Marts in New Zealand, so the closest alternative is The Wharehouse. For the cheapest drugs in town, few places beat Uncle Hemi's House.There are Ten Westfields which is called Eastfield in gta.
If you want to rob a bank in GTA NZ try little towns banks instead of National bank in Auckland and wellington.Unlike other games you can put money in the bank and take it out.
