Product Description

Product Description

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.

Developed by Rockstar Leeds and series creators Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories is out now for PlayStation2 and PSP.

I got this game because I wanted a 3-Dimensional Grand Theft Auto game for the Sony PSP. Due to the fact that the recent Chinatown Wars (PSP) plays from a "top-down" viewpoint, it seemed to be a retrograde step compared to Liberty City Stories, hence my purchase to see the full flavour of Grand Theft Auto on the PSP.
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!!

I've done loads of missions in this game, and I'm only 10% of the way through it!

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!

GTA: LCS was released on the PSP (PlayStation Portable) in 2005 by Rockstar Games. Set in the New York-influenced Liberty City it's a prequel to Grand Theft Auto 3 which was released on the PS2 in 2001. It's 1998 and Toni Cipriani, an Italian-American tough guy who you did a few missions for in GTA3, has just returned to Liberty City after spending a few years away due to some complicated issues. Liberty City is in turmoil and several gangs are at war, vying to be THE number one gang in "The Worst Place In America." Toni and his boss, Salvatore Leone, must fight, scratch and claw their way to the very top.

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.

I've bought this game to play when traveling by plane (and I do it a lot). It's that kind of game that really entertains you (and the passenger sitting at your side) for a good amount of hours. It has a great script, where you're part of a Mafia family. Beside the missions you should accomplish, you just can be yourself and start driving around, being a taxi driver, stealing any kind of vehicle, hitting (or even killing) people - if you really want to. In fact you can do whatever you like, and the non-limited scenario provides you an excellent gameplay, graphics and sound, where everything is almost possible! I really recommend it, specially for the Platinum version, that even if it is not the latest GTA, you'll find a great value for money. I've also bought Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars (PSP) and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories (PSP), which is completing my GTA experience for PSP. Each one has different plots, graphics and characters, so you'll never get bored owning all. If you enjoy a mix of driving, free walking and mission based with a bit of crime, this GTA: Liberty City Stories will fill your desires!
