Being a long term fan of the GTA series, I bought this both on psp originally, and PS2 next. Make no mistake, this is a great game. Some people are moaning that its a little lightweight, but this shows how much expectations have risen since the original came out.

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!!!!!!!!

It's very hard to rate game that's part of a series, without comparing it to the others in the series. LCS has a smaller map, fewer missions, fewer vehicles, fewer features, and a worse story than San Andreas. In fact, it doesn't even come close. BUT, comparing the game to any other similar title, it does better in almost all those categories- it's certainly better than the Godfather. Bottom line, this is a budget game. If you havn't got San Andreas, get that. If you have got San Andreas and can lower your expectations bit, get this. If you want another big GTA title, this isn't it.

You may remember Toni Cipriani from GTA3. He was the Mafia capo that gave Claude jobs destroying the Triads. This game is set two or so years beforehand and you are now playing as Toni. You have to help get the mob back on its feet after Forellis and Sindaccos, two other Mafia families, threaten its base in Liberty City.

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. If you have read about the Avenging Angels glitch, that has been fixed in the PS2 Version.

I was a little bit concerned before buying this game but I certainly wasn't disappointed it upon playing it. There is a wide variety of weapons, cars and jobs, and the differences between this and GTA3 truly impressed me. Although the last mission is quite a toughie - it is meant to be - and this shows that just because it is a PSP title it does not have to be a walk in the park, but it is a superb game, one worth buying.

This is a straight conversion of the first ever GTA game to appear on Playstation Portable. The first thing to say is that if you haven't yet sampled the neon excess of Vice City, or the mindbending scale of San Andreas, there is absolutely no reason to buy this as you can now easily pick up either of those games at a budget price. If, however, you're a diehard GTA vet looking for the next fix, this may just fit the bill, provided you don't come at it with expectations raised too high.

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.

I must admit that I really enjoyed GTA: LCS, it was just a lot of fun. Yes the graphics are grainy, dull and generally piss poor but the gameplay is hugely rewarding and very addictive. Most importantly the missions are set at just the right level, always challenging but never so difficult as to drive you up the wall with frustration. Even I (with a little help from the internet) managed 100% completion which is first for me with a game from the GTA series.

There are a few negatives, the story is dull and predictable (but aren't they all? if you want a good story buy a book!), the music disappointingly poor (so unusual for a GTA game) and there are a few missions that are just so dull (100 taxi fares? WHY!).

But overall this is a solid, fun and challenging addition to the series and is recommended.

I really enjoyed GTA III and GTA Vice City. Didn't enjoy San Andreas all that much- there's two things you can do in GTA- Steal and ride vehciles and kill people with a weapon of choice. Most of the missions in San Andreas I had alread done in GTA III and GTA Vice City, and it was getting kind of boring. Furthermore, I really like, and find hysterical the way GTA parodies America, but the black ghetto culture scenario in San Andreas was just depressing... anyway I completed this game in 3 days, being pretty much a walkthrough after playing the previous games. The one thing that makes this game worth buying is the stories, comical dialgoue, and hysterical radio shows.
