when i first got this game on the pc, i thought it was one of the best games i had played in a long time. it had everything a young adult wanted: mob killings, drug traffiking, hold-ups, hijacking, hit and run, and of course murder one. unfortunately, i had to sell my pc, so i got grand theft auto for the playstation. i found that it had lost nothing from the transition from the pc to the playstation. it still had the mob killings, hit & run and murder one, but it still kept it's amazing musical score, including the amazing "Grand Theft Auto". not only this, but it has an amazing range of cars that you can steal, which is basically the point of the game: the bulldog, the penetrator, the tanker and the amazing tank, complete with firing turret! the basic story of the game is this. you start as a lowly street punk, stealing cars to make some cash. as you progress the HUGE levels, you climb through the ranks of organised crime, making friends in high places. although the game is free range, there are missions which you can undertake by visiting the various payphones scattered around the cities. these missions range from being a getaway driver to hijacking a fuel tanker, fitting a bomb to it and parking it outside the headquarters of a rival gang. the only trouble is that it does suffer from slow-down if you are doing too mqany things at once. for example if you are tailing a car with a four cop rating. but this minor imperfection aside, this still remains a classic... My advice is simple: BUY THIS NOW, KAPISH?!
