recently had the opportunity to preview Liberty City Stories on one of Rockstar's developer's kits. From what I have read, they are very impressed and is certainly a great preview to read.
Some interesting bits from the preview:
• The main areas of Liberty City (Portland, Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale) will be just as recognizable as GTA3, but have some tweaks: different short cuts, alleys, buildings, and some interiors have been thrown in for good measure too.
• Character customization is not as extensive as in San Andreas, more akin to that seen in Vice City, with certain outfits required for specific missions.
• The ferries system will work much the same way as the subway and the El-Train system.
• Quite a high level of detail on buildings.
Kikizo also says that the streets of Liberty City appeared to be a little quieter than GTA3. They were also highly impressed with the loading times. View the preview <a href="http://games.kikizo....lank">here</a>.
On a side not, <a href="http://www.pro-g.co....Pro-G.co.uk</a>
says that the UK release date for Liberty City Stories has now been confirmed. That it will be in stores Friday October 28th.
