Storyline

Liberty City, USA. The worst place in America. You've been betrayed and left for dead. Now you're taking revenge, unless the city gets you first. Mob bosses need a favor, crooked copes need help and street gangs want you dead. You'll have to rob, steal and kill just to stay out of serious trouble. Anything can happen out there.

Goofs

When the player enters the airport notice that there is a fire station with a "street version" fire truck. That is strange because in reality airports have their own fire trucks which are massive size trucks with six huge tires, not the ones that you see on city streets. See more »

Quotes

[Reed Tucker is about to destroy a desk live on Chatterbox]
Lazlow: This desk is made of 2-inch thick composite wood and has a mahogany venear finish. It has three drawers and knowing this station, it cost $100. In his own words, Reed Tucker is about to smash it into two half desks. Take it away, Reeve.
Reed Tucker: Ladies and gentlemen, I've already visualized the desk in two half desks, and now I shall make it so... dragon stance... hii-YA! Ohhh, ow, oh Lazlow, Lazlow, I think I hurt my hand... my pinky's all bent...

Liberty justified!
9 June 2005 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most entertaining and controversial, yet wonderful games out there. Though it received heat from parents everywhere and other countries tried to ban it, it is without a doubt one of the best, and one of a kind out there(Do they think younger ones would play this? This is for older ones). Well it may not be for everyone, due to the violent content, grammar, and sex, but hey it is a satire of everyday life, but mostly depicting a grimy, rough city, supposedly this is supposed to be New York, where you control a nameless(we shall learn his name in GTA:SA!) and speechless gangster who's been wronged by the gang he worked for, now he goes freelance in the Pulp Fiction-esquire environment of Liberty City, where you work for different gang factions, just to do their dirty work. But that's not it, you can also walk around steel a car, and do whatever you will, it's non-linear! And because it is, you don't have to do some of the missions, though most of them are part of the story. This is one of the best and it is the first game of it's kind I played. If you like this play also Mafia(more like a 1930's GTA to me), GTA Vice City, and GTA San Andreas, thank you Rockstar, it's good, see.
