Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
Game Over Online
10 July 2015
Excerpt: Considering the next full-tilt GTA is not due until late 2007 and the entire industry is shifting its focus toward the next-gen consoles, a short, side story visit through Liberty City proves to be just the thing to tide fans over.
Excerpt: “What’s the quickest way to earn several million dollars?” -“Well, releasing a Grand Theft Auto game always does the trick.” “How’s GTA 4 getting along?” -“I’m afraid it won’t be out until 2007, sir.” “Damn, it figures. How about that PSP game we released last year?
Excerpt: GTA: Liberty City Stories was released in October last year, and has since gone on to be the only clear killer app for Sony's handheld. A new GTA game was always going to be popular, and there could hardly have been a better way to spur PSP sales.
Excerpt: Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories is the latest iteration from immortal (and now infamous) developers RockStar Games. Like many folks out there, I proudly hold the honor of purchasing the original, top-down GTA .
Excerpt: When it comes to analog sticks, two is always better than one, especially when it comes to 3rd person titles. If you hadn't already guessed, the PS2 controller indeed features two of these babies, while the PSP only has one lousy nub.
Conclusion: Going back to Liberty City made me realize how much time I’ve spent there – heck, I think I know my way round its highways, streets and back alleys better than my home town, and I certainly drive and ride around it faster… you see, I’ve made so many enemies that I daren’t hang around in some...
Pros: It’s good old GTA – a sizeable new story, Loads of freedom to do what you want, You can ride bikes around LC now
Cons: The bad old original targeting/ lock on system sucks, No choppers and even the Dodo has gone missing
Summary: Liberty City Stories is a great PSP game that didn't need to be ported to the PlayStation 2. If you're in the market for a Grand Theft Auto game on Sony's current generation console it's better you stick with Vice City or San Andreas.
