As announced last week, today marks the release of Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories on the PSN Store, completing Rockstar Games' PS2 Classics collection on the PS3 - at least for the Grand Theft Auto franchise (other classic Rockstar titles are apparently forthcoming). Both games were originally released exclusively for the Sony PSP in 2005 and 2006 respectively, but were ported to the PS2 the following years.
 

From the dark, seedy and bustling streets of Liberty City's concrete jungle to the glamorous and hedonistic metropolis of Vice City in the 1980s. Two towns, each brimming with limitless delights and degradation, where anything can happen...

If you missed one of these two Stories when they first came out, or are ready to revisit Toni Cipriani's '98 rise to glory and Victor Vance's '84 tale of Vice - you can now pull them down digitally to your PS3.

IGN Review Vice City Stories for PS2

IGN have today given us their thoughts on Vice City Stories for PS2, they seem to pick up on the fact that many of the bugs which plagued the PSP version are still apparent, though there are a few technical improvements, namely the framerate and graphics. Having said that, the game doesn't really take advantage of the PS2's stronger hardware.

IGN's review seems to take quite a negative stance on the game, however it concludes with more positive points, which thankfully outweigh the drawbacks. They gave the game 7.5 out of 10. In addition to the review, IGN also posted about 12 in-game screenshots which you can view by clicking the links below.
