Squeezes every GTA nuance into a portable game; Stunning audio; Not bogged down by long loads
Liberty City and mob theme getting old; Missions don't stray from standard GTA formula.
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.
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 new trailer showing off the mutiplayer mode is available in Windows Media and Quicktime formats as usual, as well as the PSP version. There are also plenty of new screens on the website, which you can now see on our screenshots page.
Thought I'd let you know that we updated the official Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories website . There is also a new multiplayer trailer.
Thanks to OG_Loc87 on the IGN boards for this.
Like all the GTA's before it, LCS has many problems. Some of them are caused by the PSP, and some are the same ones that people have been waiting years for Rockstar to fix. Since the game relies so heavily on running and shooting, you'd think that it would be polished to perfection, but it isn't, and the driving mechanics are the same we had in GTA3 and Vice City.
You can now fine-tune your aiming by tapping down on the D-pad and then holding down the L button. But even so, it's the type of feature you'll forget is there, because it's unessential. Many missions require you to wander into a crowded area and pick off specific targets, while everyone around you opens fire, but you can tap R to lock on to a target.
You often have to be quick, because you'll either struggle with aiming or you'll use all your ammo wiping everything out. It is a hugegame and will likely take you 40-50 hours to complete and even then, there are 33 other "games" inside it, that could take a further 5-10 hours.
Karmageddon: Steal a fire truck and then cause as much chaos as you can.

FirstCom Music has announced that "March Popakov Remix," a FirstCom-licensed track written by John Cacavas and produced by Danger Mouse, was selected as the theme song for the video game Grand Theft Auto—Liberty City Stories. "We are very excited about this placement," says Sam Kling, vice president, Film and TV music for FirstCom. "We believe that FirstCom can bring a lot to the table in the way of quality music for the gaming industry. We are looking forward to expanding our presence in this market over the next year." In addition to theme placement in the video game, the remix will be featured in all television advertising for the game worldwide.
This "PSP" edition will feature 10 radio stations, including the return of the hip-hop Playback FM, featuring '90s stalwarts such as Mobb Deep and N.O.R.E. spun by New York's DJ Clue. Also on the dial are the franchise-familiar reggae-fest KJAH, stations for world music, classical and drum and bass, along with one devoted to the works of Giorgio Moroder, an influential electronic-music producer who also composed the soundtrack to 1984's "Flashdance." Two stations feature music entirely composed by Rockstar North, the developer of the console "GTA" titles. Another frequency is all talk, which will likely be the game's funniest.
