Summary: This is not a GTA wanna be, so don't compare this game to GTA Liberty City Stories/Vice City Stories -- they're different games. I have GTA Vice City Stories and Gangs of London and I prefer Gangs of London -- it's just more fun, but that's just me. There are similarities, but they're still different games. In GTA, you control one person. In Gangs of London, you control about 3 or 4 other people (your gang) on missions, but sometimes you're alone.
Summary: A fun game very similar to the Grand Theft Auto series. It includes lots of options and mini-games to make it playable many times over. It has a comic book feel and for the PSP the graphics are decent. However, I found the controls to be a little arkward. Load times are minimal and the animation is smooth. For under $10, well worth it.
Summary: Gangs of London is a great game, and i believe everyone with a psp should have this game because of the fact that it's 10 dollars for used. But one of my favorite parts about this game is that you choose the gang you want to be in. It's not like grand theft auto where you have to follow the same storyline. The missions are ok. It has levels where you escape in a car, or you sneak around in an enemy gang's crib, or you can just start killing people.
Summary: The best part of the game is the story line. To add, the introduction before every mission is very captivating. This alone keeps you wanting to beat every mission and go on to another one. I however expected more blood and actually thought heads would fall off or at least be able to have head shots and see the blood spray out. However, all in all, its a good game.
Summary: I have played The Getaway and enjoyed that. I also am enjoying this. Granted it's not GTA but it definitely has its own thing going on. Apart from the main game which is basically the Getaway again, what gives this a fourth star are all the mini-games. There's a decent pool, darts, skittles, and the Gang Wars game which provides a nice break from all the running around. Then there's all the free-roam modes, which again provide add variety.
Great game for your PSP better then the bad game The Getaway

Excerpt: Gangs of London part of The Getaway series and I'm shocked with this game because its actually a great game. The other Getaway games i never liked but i love the way the story has been set up on this. Now reading other peoples reviews to you know don't listen to them if you like the look of the game buy it or at least try it. Gangs of London features 6 gangs only 5 are playable theres the Cockney Morris Kane Firm which is the longest-established of the London Gangs.
Fantasic game that you won't put down for hours. and the game play is different each time.

Excerpt: Gangs of London is a game i can't put down. Its been fantastic since the day i had it. its much like a grand theft auto style of game, where you can drive cars and you take up missions. Your one of five gangs fighting to take control of the city, Burgle, Defend, attact, do what ever it takes to be number one. Control up to 3 members of your gang on anyone mission at anyone time, ( much like a live action worms like game ) .
Conclusion: Really enjoyed this game.. Great graphics, gameplay, action ect.. But just lacked the edge to be fantastic.. The extra features are fantastic like the pub games, gang battle ect.. Overall DEFINATLEY worth getting..
Conclusion: Very good game. The driving and shooting are somewhat old ideas (without GTA this game would never have been thought up) but it is still very good. The mapping of Central London is uncannily acurate and the story, although unintentionally funny in parts, keeps things together. The sub-games are great and extend the shelf-life. Think GTA done London style.
