Did You Know?


On one of the talk-show stations in the game (VCPR), Jeremy Robard, a "motivational speaker" names a few of his treatment tapes. All of the titles, when abbreviated, are names of drugs. "Motivate, Demonstrate, then Motivate Again" becomes MDMA (Ectasy), "Think, Hold that thought, Complete" becomes THC, and "Learn, Start, Do" becomes LSD. See more »


In the Mission "Two Bit Hit", the game tells you to drive to the clothes shop "Rafael's", but the store the game leads you to is called "Little Havana Streetwear & Tattoo Parlour". See more »

Keeps up the fun
22 June 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

(This review refers to the PC port.) This game is a much needed breath of fresh air. It's incredibly fun, and like Grand Theft Auto 3, it's very easy to pick up and play. You can easily play this game for hours on end, but you don't hours to be able to play. From the moment you start, it's seamless to start doing your thing and simply have fun.

The missions are quite fun. They're better than before, cooler, and just plain entertaining. I thought not being the nameless thug would be annoying, but it's better than ever. The story is perfect for a game of this type, and the game's atmosphere is flawless. Don't be surprised if you find a love for 80's music after playing this game.

The only downsides are like GTA3, there's bugs left in that really should have been taken care of. Also, it's rather obvious it's a PS2 port as the game's memory is rather short. You can clearly see a car coming, turn around so it's out of sight, and poof... gone. "Out of sight, out of mind." And like GTA3, after awhile the fun may wear thin and things may get repetitive depending on your tastes.
