      Disadvantages

      Great fun

      The Grand Theft Auto series have always been a huge success amongst most and I think that this particular version Liberty City is no exception to that rule. This game also takes place in Liberty City (The same place you are in Grand Theft Auto III) and it takes place before Grand Theft Auto III. This game is loads of fun and you won't be disappointed.

      You are Tony Cipriani and have to perform a lot of missions for Salvatore Leonie. The game is pretty long and just as long as the other Grand Theft Auto games. It is great that you are driving around a big city and have the freedom to do anything you want.

      You can pretty much do whatever you want from stealing cars and killing people, running from cops etc. Some games have limitations but this one there is no holds barred fun. I think that is why they are so popular.

      There are some great graphics in the game too. The texture of the people and the cars is very smooth and in great detail and the cut scenes are great as well.

      The game is particularly fun to playwhen you are on plane or riding a car. The missions are great fun to do because there are certain ones where you have to kill a limousine driver, steal his clothes and act as him for the mission. There are so many crazy missions that come up that you won't get bored with it. The game is very challenging but not hard enough to make it not fun.

      In addition to driving about you can walk and run places as well. The controls whether you are driving or not are easy enough to use and you should get used to it fairly quickly.

      The game deserves it's M rating as there is a lot of violence, sex, language and drugs. This game is not really for children except for the roaming around free mode.

      It's brilliant though for any Grand Theft Auto fans

        Brilliant game for any GTA fan!

        This is a suprisingly good sequel to the excellent playstation 2 game: I have to admit that i wasn't expecting the quality, e.g frame rate, picture quality and game storyline, to be anywhere near as good as it is!
        Admitedly there are a few to many loading screens, but this is no more than can be expected.
        The storyline is NOT the same as the ps2 version, which had been rumoured. This is another classic in the GTA series, and i would recommend to anyone who is a fan of any of the previous GTA games. It's faced paced gamely twinned with the more than satisfying storyline can not be faulted.
        As well as the storyline missions, a series of 'side-games' can also be played, which can be very fun to do if you are bored of driving around shooting people!
        The visuals are astounding, considering what you are playing it on, it is truely an excellnt technical acheivement from all the game makers at Rockstar. I would recommend this game to any fan of previous GTA games, or anyone who just enjoys causing mayhem on the streets of Liberty City!

        well worth buying compliment to the psp and sony

        This game was certified 18. I bought this game when it first came out for around £30 pounds through a site on price runner, and I still believe now that it was worth that price because it delivers hours of addictive entertainment. First of all it is a shooter, strategic and free rome first person came which causes the player to complete missions for various underground villians and corrupt politicians. The Graphics are very good quality and complament the psp, as the game is made more realistic. I took around 12 hours of gameplaytime to complete the game. You can make use of the psps wireless compatible functions and play mini games with up to 6 players. I would not give this to a preteen though as the game at some points can get somewhat violent, as at one point you have to beat a man to death with an axe.

        An brilliant game that has so many great features available, well recommended!

        When I found out that the Grand Theft Auto series was comming to the PSP I was very excited and I couldn't wait to see what it is like. I really was very impressed with the game in general and I thought it deleivered an excellent gameplay experience. I felt that the main advantage of the game was how much they have managed to put on to it! It is fantastic to be playing this whislt out and about and really is great fun.

        My favourite feature of the game was the multiplayer feature. For me being able to play with my friends on a long journey in a deathmatch was just superb. The graphics considering it is on a portable device is just exceptional. I was also very impressed by the vareity of cars and weapons that are available for the game. The game of course goes back to the original GTA 3 and is rather an adapted form of the game with some improvements that have been made. I really liked how you could ride motocycles on the streets of Liberty City which previously could not be done and be able to use planes was just umbelivable.

        The character is really easy to control and I found it very easy to setup etc. The steering whilst in different vehicles is also very good and I liked how if you have played on the game before your skills can be transferred with easy. Considering the gaem is available now for just ove £10 from Amazon it really is a great buy and I would though rally recommend it. I hope this was useful and thank you very much for reading this.

        Recommended

        As a follower of the GTA series on 'big' consoles I was worried about how it would transfer to the PSP but I was very very pleased! Obviously the graphics aren't as good and the small screen limits the amount of information which can be displayed such as the map. However, you soon get over this and get drawn into the gameplay.

        As it is set within locations which will be familiar to regular GTA gamers, you'll probably find yourself feeling quite at ease with the setup right away. This is good because it leaves you time to master some of the trickier elements such as the vehicle controls which can be a little sensitivie.

        I'd seriously recommend this title to anyone with a PSP (either GTA gamers or otherwise). I've played this as much as the 'big' games and I have to say it is one of my favourite PSP titles.

        VERY GOOD"

        GTA Liberty City Stories is one of the most heavily lauded games on the PSP, and certainly one of the most popular. A free world game on a handheld is certainly an amazing technical achievement, so the game's popularity is no big surprise.This is a must have for the PSP console. Small problem is the loading times from the UMD disc which is very annoying as you have to wait a min or so just to get to a new level. I havent completed the game but one improvement is the controls which are much more responsive compared to the older versions of GTA PSP. The game features interactive wireless play via the PSP's infrared wireless-B module, so you can have up to 6 players playing at once. The game was rated M+17 for blood and gore, intense violence, strong language, strong sexual content, and use of drugs. Overall a great game.

        probably one of the best psp games on the market!

        Yet another Grand Theft Auto game for us to play! And once again its just as fun as the first!

        Grand Theft Auto: liberty city stories allows you to roam the streets of Liberty City once more (after GTA 3) with some brand new areas for you to explore. Whats great about this game is that you can pick it up for around 10 miinutes, maybe if your on a bus or a train and complete a few more missions, or just go on a giant killing spree.

        This game will have to playing for a while as it is in no way short and the missions don't get boring. As you progress through the game you will end up being given bigger and more powerful weapons to play with which is always fun.

        the only bad point that i found was that the controls can be a bit fiddely and this can hinder gameplay.

        deffinately worth your cash

        A remake of the original PS2 version of GTA. Absolutely worth the few quid this will set you back. And more importantly, it will give you hours of fun whilst you travel to and from work on public transport! The actual game can be played by completing the story by doing missions, or you can pick the game up and drive around just causing absolute carnage, which is fun when you use the cheats to get all the weapons etc! The missions in the game are at a level that means most gamers would be able to do them after a couple of attempts, some are obviously harder than others. I can do them, and i would say im an average gamer at best. graphically the game looks great on the psp screen, and the controls seem natural, and are similar to the ps2. i prefer this over the second psp GTA release, vice city.
        Although rated 18, no doubt kids will play this game, but i'd say its not suitable for anyone under 15.

          PSP GTA Liberty city stories is a well based game for travelling GTA fans. A good storyline and cinical humour that Rockstar provides so well for each of the previous version on other platforms are still present.The good:to have a GTA game on portable consoleThe bad:the controls, some time should be spent on practicingEnjoy it like I did

          It's brill

          Liberty City Stories is a really good G.T.A game worth getting and now you can take it around with you on your PSP!!

          This game is a great game in every way, it has really good game play which is the best bit about this game.

          Basic Storyline...

          This game is completely gangster and is set in 1991 in a town called Liberty city. An american gangster called Toni who is supplied to work for different people, has to complete missions such as being a hit-man. In order to become the owner of Liberty City Toni must complete loads of missons and become higher ranks.

          (This takes ages! So the game can last for a long time, this could be bad or good.)

          I would recomend definitely getting this great game. At the moment it is availible from as little as £12.99! ($19.41).

          Enjoy

            Disadvantages

            A fantastic game

            The origional LIberty City was a great game and then this version of it was even better. Now its even better.

            When playing Liberty city stories, it was like you were actually there, and you were part of the game which not a huge amount of games can do. The graphics are very impressive to say the least and on the PSP its still a very good image. There is never adull moment in the mission stage because you are constantly being challenged but if you do want to do something else you can get side missions such as rampages and you can just go around and slaughter everyone if that is where your mood takes you.

            One bad thing about it, is it doesnt have the freedom of san andreas because you cant go into shops and there isnt as much variety with things like clothing. You cant get into planes and there arent any infinate cheats for health and ammo.

            I think this is still a fantastic game and it is a joy to play on a psp
