This may be the video game your mother warned you about. Rather than being penalised for each innocent pedestrian you hit, in Grand Theft Auto 2 you're rewarded. Like its predecessor, the game is viewed from a bird's-eye perspective, and you play as one of the little people in a vast futuristic city. The object is to prove your mettle to warring gangs by car-jacking innocent victims, assassinating rivals, stealing drug shipments and completing assorted other missions. But if you are not the type to take orders, you can do anything you want, thanks to the game's loose, non-linear structure. For example, you can commandeer a bus and take it along its regular route--the passengers will pay the fare without noticing anything different. But if you decide to plough the bus through the side of a building--and you know you eventually will--they will start jumping out of the windows. And because you are hopping from vehicle to vehicle, you get a good sampling of the city's radio formats--everything from techno to top 40, classic rock to country. Be sure to keep moving, though--the cops will always be on your tail.
GTA respect is everything. Grand Theft Auto is back. Seven ruthless gangs are involved in a brutal power struggle. Make a name for yourself, but watch your back. Respect is earned, not given.

There are three levels in GTA2. Each level is divided up into three areas of turf, controlled by a different gang. The gangs range from the ever-unpopular megacorporation, Zaibatsu, to the dirt-road mobile-home-owning Rednecks. But regardless of personal philosophies, the gangs' methods are roughly the same. You, as a budding young criminal always on the lookout for the next big score, need to earn some respect from the gangs in the city. Since the gangs are constantly at war with each other, the only real way to earn the respect of one gang is to roll over to their rival gang's turf and start smoking as many gang members as you can find. Once you've earned a little positive respect from a gang (an onscreen meter lets you know where you stand with all three gangs), you can start answering that gang's pay phones and going on missions. The missions are similar to those in the original GTA. They force you to blow up buildings, shoot informants, deliver narcotics, and all other types of ill deals. The better you do in one gang, the more that gang's rivals will hate you. The more they hate you, the angrier they will get when you roll into their area. Angry gangs will simply open fire on you the minute they see you. Luckily, you've got a health meter this time around, so you can withstand a few shots before going down.
The police are also a constant factor in GTA2.Read more ›
