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.
In a nutshell:
The best selling game on the PSP arrives on the PS2 and at a surprisingly generous budget price too. Return to the original city from Grand Theft Auto III, but with all the subsequent enhancements to the series including motorcycles and computer controlled allies.
Its easy to see why this is so far the only gaming to be ported from the PSP to the PS2, since this is basically a whole new Grand Theft Auto game, even if it does take place in the same city as one of the previous games. The missions are exactly the same as in the PSP version, which means theyre slightly shorter than usual originally so as to be better suited to a portable format. The graphics have been improved though with a new silky smooth frame rate, a better draw distance and more cars and pedestrians on the streets. The only problem is that the multiplayer modes from the PSP game have been completely removed, which is a shame, but then Rockstar probably dont want this to steal Grand Theft Auto IVs thunder.
Most exciting moment:
As ever with GTA the best bit of the game isnt the missions but just exploring the city and getting into trouble. If you ever get bored of just random mayhem though there are tons of side quests including the usual chances to be a vigilante and paramedic, as well as pizza delivery man and even a dustbin man!
Since you ask:
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories has already been announced for release this October on the PSP. So far a version hasnt been confirmed for the PlayStation 2 and nor is there any word of a possible San Andreas Stories. They do seem like safe bets though.
The bottom line:
A miniaturised GTA adventure at a miniaturised price.

Liberty City itself is still fantastic; you can spend hours just exploring, enjoying the visual gags of which there are many, and doing side missions, again of which there are many.
I don't think you can complain about lack of depth, when you take into account the free-roaming fun this game gives. It also contributes to GTA continuity, which is cool as well.
The missions are a bit shorter, but the game was developed for the PSP, so I think thats a silly complaint; at the money you pay, you cannot get a better value game.
milking a cash cow? perhaps. pleased they did it? YOU BET!!!!!!!!
The missions on Portland Island, the first of three islands, are simple and easy-to-follow, great for getting used to the game, or the GTA Franchise if you haven't played before. If you have, the Staunton Island missions (the second Island) are a good base for more experienced players. Then you have the Shoreside Vale missions, the ones which are challenging but really give the game an epic finale.
The game sees you with Mafia goons, night club owners, mayoral candidates and the Yakuza. Familiar faces include Salvatore Leone and Donald Love, with brief appearances from others. You can drive a total of 70 driveable vehicles, including gang cars, buses, trucks, sports cars and motorbikes. You can also take the ferry between Portland and Staunton islands, the EL Train around Portland and the Subway beneath the city.
But what really makes this game worth it is the odd jobs. For a PSP Title (there is little difference between the PSP and PS2 title) there is an amazing amount. Not only is there the classic R3 missions; ambulance, police, fire fighter and taxi; but there is also noodle and pizza delivery, car salesman, race tracks, RC races, assassinations, car collections and more, including a unique feature which I feel is truly superb, Avenging Angels, were you participate in a crime-fighting gangs and must, with another Avenging Angel, get rid of gang crime in the area.Read more ›
Surprisingly, this doesn't really feel like a scaled up hand-held game, more a scaled down console game. Everything looks and controls in more or less exactly the way that you expect. The series has always benefited from an amazing core game engine, and fundamentally it's no different here. Yes the compromises are certainly there if you go looking for them - the scale is pretty restricted, the radio stations loop more frequently, the colours are muddier, the effects more basic and the streets less populated, but actually the whole thing stands up pretty well alongside the other games in the series.
Liberty City is less interesting as an environment than Vice City or San Andreas, but it does have a certain mafioso charm. The story and missions are pretty basic, but there are plenty of them and you still get the same tingle of satisfaction as you complete them - the game is pleasantly addictive. The bottom line is, if you haven't played GTA in a while, and are just itching to cruise the streets blowing things up, stealing cars and shooting things in a familiar ironic postmodern setting, then you may just enjoy this.
As far as the storyline, I personally Love the organized crime background better than I did the Boyz in the Hood style of San Andreas, and better than the more Scarfacey mob style of Vice City. It has you doing the same stuff as before; Kill this guy, run this package, blow up this truck, kill this guy.... But they keep you interested, and the storyline is decent. I'm only 30% done the game, but it's not completely horrible so far.
The combat is the same as always... lock on, fire, never miss. Unless of course your target is partially obstructed. In which case you ALWAYS miss. Once you get the Shotgun, Revolver, or heavy MG type weapons, combat is easy. Even when there's a million enemies on you in certain missions, it's really very simple. Only one mission has been hard combat-wise so far, and that was easily solved by getting into a jeep and running over the enemies. Or you could just hop on a motorcycle, gain some distance, and then turn towards them. They'll usually run directly in front of the bike, so just spraying the machine gun takes out everyone in the general direction. It works great on Avenging Angel missions as well.Read more ›
