Its easy to see why this is so far the only gaming to be ported from the PSP to the PS2, since this is basically a whole new Grand Theft Auto game, even if it does take place in the same city as one of the previous games. The missions are exactly the same as in the PSP version, which means theyre slightly shorter than usual originally so as to be better suited to a portable format. The graphics have been improved though with a new silky smooth frame rate, a better draw distance and more cars and pedestrians on the streets. The only problem is that the multiplayer modes from the PSP game have been completely removed, which is a shame, but then Rockstar probably dont want this to steal Grand Theft Auto IVs thunder.
Most exciting moment:
As ever with GTA the best bit of the game isnt the missions but just exploring the city and getting into trouble. If you ever get bored of just random mayhem though there are tons of side quests including the usual chances to be a vigilante and paramedic, as well as pizza delivery man and even a dustbin man!
Since you ask:
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories has already been announced for release this October on the PSP. So far a version hasnt been confirmed for the PlayStation 2 and nor is there any word of a possible San Andreas Stories. They do seem like safe bets though.
The bottom line:
A miniaturised GTA adventure at a miniaturised price.
There are a million stories in Liberty City. This one changes everything. Once a trusted wise guy in the Leone crime family, Toni Cipriani was forced into hiding after killing a made man. Now he's back and it's time for things to be put right.
The streets of Liberty City are in turmoil. Warring Mafiosi vie for control as the town begins to self-destruct under waves of political corruption, organized crime, drug trafficking and union strikes. No one can be trusted as Toni tries to clean up the mess of the city's chaotic underworld. Deranged hit men, morally depraved tycoons, cynical politicians and his own mother stand in his way as Toni tries to bring the city under Leone control.
Forced to fight for his life in an odyssey that will shake Liberty City to its foundations, Toni must use any means necessary to secure his place in the leadership of the Leone family in a town up for grabs.
