Good, but nothing special

Summary: I played it thinking it was gonna be another San Andreas, but i was surprised. To be honest i thought i was another Gta 3 (not in a bad way), i though this game hardly evolved from San Andreas(which i was expecting).However it's a gta game, and any real fan would like this release.
Summary: this game is alright. its by no means as good as GTA San Andreas but the missions are nice and easy, perhaps a bit simplistic at times but its a change in scenery. its a pity you cant swim in water in this one and the map isnt so good but overall its ok.

Summary: Overall, Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories (PS2) is an addictive game with many great moments of gaming action whether it be racing cars over cliffs and up ramps or completing criminal missions, but on the whole it just isn't original enough. It's a game that just carries on the series filling a void until something huge comes along. The graphics are basic and at times appalling mixing with a very sluggish feel.
Summary: This game was designed for people with psp's to be able to play GTA on it. It was obviously not meant to be the next main GTA. Reading some of these comments says to me that most people were expecting something bigger than San Andreas. The story might not be the best but Rockstar didn't spend loads of time on it. Also for the price its being sold at, what did people expect.
Excerpt: "...notable one – a new Grand Theft Auto game, which no doubt will have softened the blow somewhat. The fourth PS2 instalment of the mega-successful GTA franchise sees you controlling Toni Cipriani, a man who has returned to the Leone crime family after a time in exile, where he finds a chaotic struggle developing between crime syndicates over control of the city. The location in question (as you might well have guessed from the title) is Liberty City ...
Pros: New GTA missions and storyline, good design, great driving sections, cheap
Cons: Old GTA problems - combat, no helicopters, few in - door locations, technically dated
Summary: Whenever, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas came out, it was probably one of the best games I had ever bought! It would take a lot to beat it. GTA Liberty City Stories tried to, but failed. The fact is, GTA Liberty City Stories was designed for the PSP, it should never have been launched in the PS2! It was too much like GTA 3 and it wasn't as good a quality as the previous GTAs. It was obvious that Rockstar just didn't put as much effort into this one.
Summary: This was the first game I bought with my PSP and I loved. The idea of being able to play GTA on the go was brilliant. So after it was released on PS2 I thought great. Went out and bought it. Came home and invited my mate down to have ago, put it in the disc drive and waited on it loading. When it started we just stared at the screen shocked. The graphics on it are bad since all the other GTA games had amazing graphs, the controls where a bit "wonky".
Summary: Having worked through the GTA world and becoming more impressed this is a bit of a let down San Andreas is the must have as it is paacked full of everything. This doesn't even feature some of the nifty little bits like climbing over walls and on houses which after doing so long in San An makes it a bit awkward at first and also don't be too used to swimming as i realised after plunging head long into the water it still kills you.
