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.

This game makes full use of the PSP's hardware and is excellent, both visibly and audibly. There is plenty to do in this open world of New York (side missions etc.) and as such I have not come anywhere near to completing the game yet. Highly recommended!!
Such is the depth and scope of the game. Its always got something to do. There are always between three and four "bosses" to give you jobs to do. From gangster bosses, to their wives, old friends, and even your mother, have jobs they want you to complete. Everything from taking the Don's wife shopping to blowing up large buildings belonging to rival gangs.
A lot of the missions have conditions or time limits imposed to make the action fast and intense. But the missions are never overly hard. The balance is just right that although a mission may get you stuck on it from time to time, you can always overcome it with a little work.
And if you do get stuck, and you don't fancy picking a mission from another boss, you can always spend some downtime taking work as a cabbie, doing street bike racing, or just going on a homicidal rampage.
The storylines, such as they are, wont win any awards. There's no real storyline or character development as such, the cutscenes are more there to keep the humor going and give some kind of plausible reason to why you're doing what you're doing.
IMPORTANT POINT: There are many adult themes, lots of effing and blinding, drug and sexual reference and large wodges of violence. This game well deserves its 18 rating. Do not buy if you are under 18. And parents, if your son or daughter is under 18 and asks you to buy this game for them then they're trying to slip one past you! Do not buy it for them!
That having been said there are plenty of weapons to buy and plenty of outfits to unlock. I always play a game until I complete it or I become bored of it. And by the looks of this game it will be a long while until I start on the next game in my list!
This being a PSP game LCS was always gonna have its work cut out in the graphics department (PSP's graphical powers are weaker than PS2's). Fortunately Rockstar did a very good job cramming as much graphical detail as possible onto the little screen. You can make out the text on shop signs; smaller objects such as lamps and chairs in buildings can be seen perfectly; and the characters' mouth movements match up with the dialogue pretty well. The graphics do have some down points. Sometimes walls of buildings will develop detail after initially showing up blurry; and they stutter occasionally, but only occasionally.
The control layout is excellent given the PSP only has two shoulder buttons and one analogue stick. You can move your character by moving the analogue stick around, and when you hold down the L shoulder button the analogue stick controls the camera, allowing you to see the world around Toni. Left and Right on the D-pad switches your weapons whilst on foot, and switches radio stations whilst in a vehicle.Read more ›
