A sequel to the hit video game Grand Theft Auto, this game once again puts the player in the role of an aspiring thug hoping to climb to the top of the criminal world by completing missions and terrorizing the citizenry. In this version, however, each city has been divided by rival gangs that will gain or lose respect for you based on your actions. The police have also beefed up their forces, and will call out the SWAT teams or even the National Guard should the regular beat cops prove insufficient. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

Not as good as I had hoped
23 May 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

Back in 2001 I bought a used Playstation from someone I knew for like thirty bucks. It came with a bunch of games. I bought two more -- "The Italian Job" (which I hated) and "Grand Theft Auto 2." My other friend already had a PS2 and we had played "Grand Theft Auto III" on it, and I had hoped the "GTAII" version for original Playstation would at least be fun. I knew the graphics would be terrible, but figured the gameplay would be equal.

Unfortunately, it wasn't. This game is really poor. First of all, as I expected, the graphics are bad. But the gameplay isn't fun at all! The controls and movement are hard and never natural. The entire method of the game is annoying and you can't really do very much at all. In order to save you have to get to the starting point which is quite annoying.

People don't talk in the game, when you get mission instructions there's a static image of a man's face and then this squeaky mumbo-jumbo dialogue that is supposed to substitute for the audio... it just sounds silly and out-of-place.

Overall, this sucks. Get "GTAIII" or "Vice City" or "San Andreas." Skip this.
