This is the time when reviews of Liberty City Stories, start pouring in. IGN kick us off with their review, with the subtitle "A full-fledged criminal underworld ready for all to explore. And hey, it even fits in your pocket."

Few games actually change the way you feel about a platform. They take the established standard and tear it to pieces. Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City (LCS) Stories is one such game. It takes the preconceptions about what a handheld can do and totally ignores them. It provides an experience so large and so complex that it's a wonder that it actually runs at all. The GTA series has always succeeded in sheer scope and complexity, and thankfully, it's no different on the as a handheld. There are no hardcore sacrifices, either. LCS uses the same kind of intricate 3D engine that put the series (and the developer) on the map with GTA III.

The review also contains some new screenshots. IGN rated the game 9 out of 10, while the average reader score is currently at 9.3.

1UP.com have also posted their review in a peculiar artistic format, giving it 9.0. Its user reviews are rather mixed though.

Won't take months for cheats, probably a couple of weeks.

I love that new plastic smell. I love smelling the inside of my cases when I buy them. My PSP box kept that new smell for a long time, doubt it's still there now, though.

I have LCS in my hands. I hope to play tonight as long as I can, but my PSP is at my Dad's so I have to wait about an hour from now. Also, I'll post a multiplayer review once Xlink/XBConnect update to support the game.
