Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories PS2

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories PS2
Settle down, kids — this ain’t a sequel to the sprawling San Andreas but a port of last year’s killer bestseller for PlayStation Portable. Until a next-gen GTA arrives in fall 2007, this budget-priced revisit will have to do, though it’s not nearly as impressive on your TV. Liberty City Stories’ graphics look particularly shoddy and it lacks the handheld’s multiplayer mode and custom soundtrack, though you can now control the camera, which was a PSP sore spot. Still, this return to the cityscape of GTA3 (albeit earlier in the timeline) remains a fun way to while the hours as a fresh-from-prison mobster with a gat and a grudge. But if you own the original Liberty City, don’t bother — the game remains the same. (Rockstar)
