A total ground breaker!!
on 8 April 2002
This game shatters all previous concepts of playability. The game offers such an extensive arena to play in you are sure to never get bored of all this game has to offer. Assume the role of policemen, taxi drivers, hired gunman and much more. All you have to do is steal the appropriate car and adopt its role on offer. Pick up taxi customers, drive them, have them pay you... or you can just run havoc around the city.
The innovative prospective to the game allows you to take the first person viewpoint, something which the last two in the series denied you. The possibilities are endless. With the new viewpoint you become so engrossed in the game that time will seem to pass far too quickly.
With the old games, the missions didn't last very long, you ran out of missions to do and you had to make up your city total by selling cars or finding odd jobs. A problem overcome in the new game. This game offers the world and delivers the universe, all in the hustle and bustle of Liberty City. As the story unfolds, you become more and more involved in the dark underworld and you have crimes to your name you never even thought existed, the game doesn't lose its charm, but perfection comes to light. The game of games. Only one step away from the real thing. What in real life would keep you up at night out of guilt, have you slammed in jail for eternity and a day, in the game will have you captured to the screen, on the edge of your chair, and I guarantee that you will end up either screaming, laughing or crying into the computer screen as the intelligent policeman with impeccable AI bust your ass and throw you in jail or you complete a lucrative job adding three zeros to your bank balance.
A game of a lifetime. The only bad thing? Well you'll never ever get any work done ever again! This game last forever, I hope you've got the next couple of years free in your calendar, because you are NEVER going to tire of this game!
