Storyline

As an aspiring young thug, your mission in this video game is to perform odd jobs for the mob, picking up points along the way by committing random crimes ranging from auto theft to hit-and-runs to murder. After proving your worth on the streets of Liberty City, expert hoods can move on to terrorize the streets of San Andreas and Vice City. This game is notable for its free playing style, in which players don't actually have to complete any of the missions to win the game, instead racking up points by engaging in freestyle mayhem.

one of the best games of it's time!
7 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

this game is excellent and I just want to say that despite the graphics, it is still an excellent game. It's funny, fun, and well, entertaining. it's not as good as GTA 3 and GTA: Vice City, but who cares?? for it's time, it's marvelous! 8/10
