THE BEST PS2 GAME EVER!!!!
8 December 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

And the best of the GTA series by far. It just has so much more to do than Vice City and GTA3. In fact, there is so much to do, it's impossible to everything I think! I think it has a better story than the other GTA games, and of course there is just so much more you can do like to your character.

The first time I got this game, I didn't think it was anything special, not at all. The missions got me cursing at the PS2 and had in a fit of rage because of how frustrating they were. But now I'm really enjoying the missions and everything else about the game.

I have been playing on this everyday since I first got it, and will likely being doing so throughout the year 2005.

Rating: 10/10
