The graphics may not be exactly state of the art but who cares. This game will have you playing on it for months. You get the opportunity to nick any car that you can see. This includes lorrys, tanks and police cars. You get to drive in three different levels all of which are totally different. You have to get a gang to trust you by killing other enemy gang members. The gangs that are available to join are the Loonies, Russian Mafia, Krishna, Yahmata and Zibatzu. They all give you different missions to do for money which you have to get a certain amount of to win the level. That, thought, is not the only way of winning money. You can also commit crimes which gets your credits up. There are many different crimes you can commit which involve running over people to stealing cars. You can also steal a taxi. When somebody then yells 'taxi' and gets in your taxi your credit meter will start going up. Unfortunately if are too violent a driver your customer will get out. All in all a great game and well worth the money.
I was very excited since I had every single copy of Grand Theft Auto on the PC at home. It was Saturday morning, I walked into GAME with a great big smile on my face and purchased a Game Boy Color, Battery Pack and GTA2! When I got home, I turned on my Gameboy and got ready for the ride. First I chose my character and then I was off. I then realised that i had to press A to move. Strange! I had great difficulty getting into cars at first. Stupid thing!! I was not totally impressed. I did one or two missions with difficulty then switched the Game boy off. What had i done? When I let my friends play, I tell them they won't like it, but they play, and are dissapointed! So much expectation and so little delivered. I would not recommend this game to anyone. Ahh!!
This game is a big improvement on its younger brother. Firstly it is only available for the GB Color unlike GTA 1. This means that the colours are greatly improved. The game has more of a plot to it. You are a freelance criminal and must carry out missions set by gang leaders. If you do well your rating with that gang goes up. If your actions annoy a gang you rating goes down. This is an improvement on 'do all these missions' in GTA 1. I must admit that this makes it harder. I managed to complete GTA1 but GTA2 is much harder. Any gang members around will shoot if you have a bad reputation. Now the physics models (sounds like a nerd I know) are improved. The cars actually accelerate and just don't start and stop speed straight away. This also makes it harder.
GTA is just simply the best game that I have bought off a friend, It has simple controls and great graphics. You only have one view tho which is the most dissapointing thing about the game. You have a range of cars to choose from, from slow to fast. You can also play the game as a driveing sim and ignore the missions compleatly. You wont be able to turn away from the game when you get started, with its compulsive need to be played. one day last month I started playing the game at 11:40AM and didnt get away from it until 6:00PM. ITs a very good game! It has okish graphics which will run on any dos based PC. It uses the sound and music cards to their fullest(I think) and playes CD while the game is being played. You have many weapons to choose from and many ways to play the missions. Cheats are optional but are avalube at my site (http://www.javagames.com-1.net) As I said before the controls are easy to figure out and easy to use, but if you dont like to use the keyboard then you can use the joystick or gamepad. The game is ment for the older people on the planet and dose contain bad language but hey its nothing you can hear standing out side the school staff room when the teachers are talking about there last lesson :) Well thats all that I can think of, I hope that this helps you choose the game. And please leave a message as I do read all of them and respond :o)
