Complete And Utter Bull Jobby!
4 February 2005 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

The only part of the game that is good is the size of the area's that you can drive in (the city in general), and car design. The rest of the game is absolute crud of the highest order. The characters look bad, they (at first glance) look like they have HUGE heads on little bodies. This is what i thought at first time glance at it, and still do really. The characters are heavy footed (lead foot syndrome), which is one of the major killers of a game of any kind. The whole control system of the characters is abysmal at best. Non responsive characters, leading to getting hit at the fault of the controls, not the player (even after 10 hours of "trying" to like the game, you still feel frustrated as flip).

Car handling is as bad as the first one, what makes GTA so enjoyable is the car handling in GTA 3, VC, GTA SA. Now you think the "muppets" involved in making this trash would learn from that...but no i guess you can't teach those chimps (Team Soho) anything. Like i stated about the first one, "I bet they spent 99% of the development time building the city. Then throwing the control system and car handling in at the last moment!". As there is no way this should be anywhere near as bad as the first. Not if the developers LISTEN TO THOSE WHO PLAY THE GAMES THEY MAKE. They are after all, making the games for us to buy, not for themselves. Or they wouldn't be in business and if they wish to stay in business. They had better LISTEN to us about what we say about the trash they are expecting us to buy. I say trash, because look at the quality of this game and the one before it, poor at best.

There is just so much that can be said about what is wrong with it, rather than what is good about it. Well it says a lot about the companies involved in it. That they are interested not in making a good quality product, for millions or even thousands to enjoy. But are interested in making any old piece of trash to make a quick buck from those who are suckered into buying this. It isn't even worth £5 let alone £39.99 that they are asking for it new, and i am deadly serious about that, it isn't worth it.

Utter trash, a poor mans GTA, always has been and looks like the series ALWAYS WILL BE. Due to the INCOMPETENCE of those who make this trash.
