I bought this game as soon as it came out on PS2 and it is still my favorite
game today. The graphics were good but the GTA series is all about game play.
The game is so open-ended that it can be played long after the missions have
The missions while very challenging at times are humorous and fun to replay a
couple of times. There are also little side missions where you can drive a
remote controlled car that explodes on impact when it touches a car, or if you
want a change from the story line then just jump in a police car and run down
The cops rule the city and you will see them on every corner you pass making
it hard to commit the perfect crime. If you mess with them they will mess with
you. Depending on the severity of your crimes you will face a single cop to a
full on army assault.
The music is the basis of the game. It has many radio stations with humorous
chatter and a good mix of tunes. There is so much variety that there is
something there for you.
I bought this game in Australia so I had the edited version so I came here
for the full version to see how Rockstar intended the game to be played.
If you like either driving or shooting game or both then this is definitely
the game for you. Five out of five stars.
