1.0 out of 5 stars Mind-numbingly awful, 9 Aug 2000
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto (GBC) (Video Game)
GTA on the PC and Playstation was a great game (even if the sentiment behind was a tad suspect).
Take one villain, scores of car-jacking incidents and a part-time job with the mob, wrap it all up in a top-down mission-based driving game and you've got a fabulous game.
Sadly, whilst this may have been true onthe PC and PS implementations, the GameBoy version is the plague-riddled second cousin who chews with his mouth open and belches in front of granny.
The streets should be teeming with vehicles to steal as the player attempts to complete their mob-related acitivites the problem is, they aren't. It seems to take an age to locate a car before the laborious process of getting in it and driving about begins. Entering the vehicle requires a press of the Select key - never easy at the best of times - which is followed by the tedium of trying to control the flipping thing.
The cars go too fast which means there's no flow to the driving experience and frantic tapping of the speed key is required to keep the thing in motion - poor indeed.
The rest of the game is totally marred by this lack of motor/lousy driving experience making it more a torture than anything else to play, after less than half an hour I wished I'd never started, since then, GTA has never been out of the box.
Avoid this like you'd avoid the second cousin ...
