Pros
~Full 3D Grand Theft Auto
~Large city
~80-100 hours of gameplay
~Many missions
~Downloadable content
~Snow weather effects
~Memory Stick Pro Duo in-game music
~Graphically beautiful
~Not long missions
~Handheld :yup:
~Many old faces, and some new!
~Perfect time of year in-game to make sense
~New, enhanced game engine
~Better targetting system
~Semi-transparent hubs to view more of the road
~This is amazing as it is on a handheld

Cons
~No interior environments
~No flying
~Different controls :'(
~Hush hush about the game thanks to R*
~Some people expect it to be like the consoles, which is virtually impossible with a handheld.
~Other than these few things, LCS should be an amazing game.

Does anybody else have any suggestions to add?

That is actually a good thing. It's portable-missions. They are like that to make the game a better portable experience.

I have some things to comment about your cons. The latest issue of PSM did mention interior envrioments. Some magazines have said there will be some and some said none, we will just have to wait and see. Also, in one mission a magazine described, you had to fly a helicopter back to Salvatore's mansion. It can have the same visual graphics as on PS2 as the PSP has the exact same processor, memory and graphics chipset. The controls are worked out and you are also correct about the quietness of R*, we should at least have one official screenshot that is not washed out from a magazine. Furthermore, where in your pros list is there mention of the hot new cars and motorcycles?

Nope, actually that was mis-read. It said a CHOPPER. Never said helicopter. Or even copter. It said chopper. It also CLEARLY said you had to dodge the fish vans. Why the HELL would you be dodging vans if you were in the sky? It was talking about a motorcycle.

Aye, but the word "Chopper" can be slang for both so I assumed it was a Heli.

Yes, that is a seller point of the game. As there won't be helicopters, motorbikes more than make up. I have seen a VC-style PCJ600, Freeway motorcycle and something similer to the FCR-900 from San Andreas. We can only pray for the Sanchez to return.

I suppose I should have worded this better. Speculation is that there will be new motorcycles, as well as the fact that the "shiny" style of the Vice City PCJ is new. In Vice City is was sort of dirty but in the LCS screenshot, it has reflections. Also, the new cars have been seen, namely the Dukes of Hazzard style muscle car. Finally, I said that motorbike that looks like the FCR-900 just looks like it. It has some differences and similarities, and it also could have been the NRG-500 or something like that, or something new altogether. Sorry for any confusion regarding motorcycles.

It is used in a mission so it will definitely make a return
