Rated 9 out of 10 by WWE Fan Extremly Satisfied
GTA LCS is a great game overall. The storyline missions are quite challenging, but a determined and dedicated gamer can finish them in maybe a week or so. But finishing all the story line missions only completes about 30% of the game. The amount of side missions and unlockables is almost overwhelming. You will be hooked on this game for ages, especially if you want to complete it 100%. The controls are fluid, whether you are on foot or in a car, and if you really want a challenge try not to use lock-on when shooting at things. The graphics are pretty good too, could use a bit more fine tuning but it's all good. Sounds are fine, some voices don't sync with animations, but overall the game sounds great. I would say the most appealing thing about this game is its length and ability to entertain. Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories is a long game, but you won't get bored with it along the way. You will be hooked until you finish it 100%.
Rated 10 out of 10 by BUKKET just a few probems
Honestly i would have to say that this is an amazing game even for a psp. Even though this game is a continuation in the long running GTA franchise and is expected to be good there were some problems that got me pretty mad. For starters the graphics are pretty good even for a psp game. Sound effects are nice and you can pretty much destroy anything that moves. Although i do wish that I could have interacted with other civilians more (by interacting I don't mean killing). When i say interacting I mean talking to them. One of the most irritating is that your tough guy italian character forgot to learn how to swim. That's right, he can't swim, which is a shame because swimming is the most fun in GTA. But i didn't say that not being able to swim was a bad thing. You can still get a good chuckle out of watching citizens walking off of an edge and into the ocean. Anyway this is a pretty good game and i would definitely recommend it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by psp player man 123 Great Game!
GTA LCS has to be one of the best games out for the psp system. The graphics are GREAT. In fact they are better than the ps2 version of the game. The story line is good and not only that, after you've fully completed the game, you can roam free just like any other gta game. If you are a parent reading this and your son or daughter wants the game, let me say there are many bad words but usually only in missions. They will occasionally use the f word but very little. It says sexual themes but there are really none. There is no nudity and besides, every gta game has said that. I think its the best game for the psp out yet. I must say i've never played gta vcs but this is a great buy. Definitely worth paying the amount it is. Also it is okay to buy the games used because the psp games are covered by plastic which makes them hard to scratch unless you actually tried. Overall this is a game worth getting.
Rated 9 out of 10 by From Me A must have GTA for the psp!
When I got this game I was surprised how good it looked. It looks about the same or better than GTA3. The graphics are great and pushes the psp to its limits. The length is long so it will take a while to beat. There are many missions and side missions so it will keep you entertained for hours. There are many things to do in this game that I haven't reached 100 percent completion. The game is separated into 3 cities(islands) which will be available to you while you progress through the game. There are many weapons, but again not all are available at the beginning until you progress far into the game. The storyline isn't deep but interesting enough and with humor. The challenge of this game varies. Some missions are easy and some take a while or trying more than once. Overall its a great game and it will keep you glued to your psp for hours. 4.5/5
Rated 8 out of 10 by Mr. Asian Persuasion Read me
Ok to start off, this game takes place in Liberty City, and is almost the same thing as GTA III. This game has its challenging moments, and easy-to-beat moments also. The controls are pretty straight forward. But one flaw that bothered me about this game was the camera view controls. Drive by's are a little harder because you have to hold L, then hold the direction that you want to aim. You also can't look up. The graphics aren't as good as GTA 4 of course, but another flaw was mouth snycing. Sometimes the words don't sync with your mouth. The length of the game is excellent, keeping you busy for about 1-4 weeks. If you complete all the missions, you can always do races, rampages, side missions(ex.- Vigilante, Paramedic, Firefighter, taxi garbage truck, car dealer), hidden packages. And if that doesn't keep you busy you can always go around and kill people, and pick up hookers. The voiceovers are pretty good, and the soundtrack music while in a car is good. The story line is excellent. It's about an Italian man who comes to Liberty City, and ranks up one step at a time. The game's price is not overpriced, and you will definitely enjoy this game.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Silverkite Good game with a stupid glitch that holds it back
While this game is a very good game it also has a very annoying glitch. The glitch is the menu where you select if you want to go to the home page pops up. Once you go back you have to wait for it to load and if you were being attacked you while die. Other than that the plot is good the length is long but the missions are VERY hard and annoying. The city is very realistic and it is awesome to be able to explore a whole city on your PsP. There are many cheats to the game but i don't use them. The Graphics are very good for a psp game but the animations are just lame. The way you run while shooting, the way you fall off a motorcycle are bad. The controls are very good and well mapped out. You won't have trouble getting used to them. All in all there are some things that hold this game back mainly that stupid glitch. 8/10
Rated 10 out of 10 by GTAmasterofpsp42597 Why I like GTA LCS
This game is a really good buy for many reasons. The main reasons I love this game is because it is a really long game, and I usualy finish games really fast. Another reason is that I don't always like games that are only missions and no free roaming, but this game has a lot of free roaming and when ever I get bored I just play the missions. Another reason is that you can play in many ways like you can be a mega criminal or be a rebel good guy. Another reason is because it's just a really fun game and it gets really addicting after you figure out how to play very well. One more reason I love this game is because it is kind of realistic. It has a NY kind of theme and it is about a maifia person who goes on a higher and higher level of the mafia family. That is why I love this game and I would defiantely recomend this game to people.
Rated 10 out of 10 by THE Female Gamer One Of My Favorites!!!
I bought this game a while back and I held on to it just for the heck of it. But when I got back to playing it I couldn't stop. I actually finished the game in a couple of days and was surprised when I finished it, lol. I thought GTA series were never ending lol. Its a very fun game and I suggest anybody to try it out. Next off is GTA Vice City stories. The only thing I really need to worry about is trying not to let the game affect my driving lol. The only thing I don't like on the game is those certain missions where you have to race or chase after somebody. I HATE to chase or race after someone. And one of the harder missions to do is the one where it says something about "False Idols" that was my most troubling mission because it was a go find, chase and kill and I hate those kind, lol. I finished it anyhow, best of luck to all.
Rated 8 out of 10 by skilover a good game
the game is pretty good. it could've been better though. some missions are like really hard, but some are really easy, most are in the middle. the storyline's great. at first it's a little boring, but the more you go through the story, the better and more exciting it gets, not to mention the cars, wepons, and side missions. the plot is pretty long, but it couldve been longer. the graphics were ok, but could've been better. one problem is that the game gets boring really quickly after you finish the story, even with all the side missions and everything. i was also disappointed when i found out that you can't fly helecopters! also, you can drive boats, but there's like almost no room to drive it. all in all, great game, i think you should by it if you like action stuff, even though this game has room for improvment.
Rated 10 out of 10 by datboyscotty great gta for pap
gta for psp is great!!as with any gta game there is all the blood and gore for you guys here and its not like the first 2 gta games with the camrea as a top down veiw the view is like the ps2 or 360 gta games and for a handheld game it looks amazing but this was releashed in 2005 so the graphics arent as good as they would be if they made it now but its decent for a psp game then and i did notice some occacial pop in but nothing to hurt anything and it will take u awhile to beat the story depending on how focused you are on it it took me 2 weeks to beat it bcuz i played it wen could but it was fun and i still played it after i beat it bcuz its that darn good u will love this game even if its on a portable system the sound is great for a psp game and the gameplay is like any other gta game killing people
