Now, back to set things straight, he meets up with the city's mafia Don, Salvatore Leone, who needs Toni's services, in order to control the streets of Liberty. Now, Toni must rob, steal, and murder in order to take the Don's word. It's a dangerous world out there. Written by sadhu_navarrete

Trivia

Frank Vincent (Don Salvatore Leone) is the only prominent actor to reprise his role from Grand Theft Auto III (2001), aside from Sondra James (Ma Cipriani) and Guru (8-Ball) who return in small roles, as well as returning radio characters. Other returning characters from GTA III were voiced by different actors. Vincent is also billed first in both games, despite the protagonist having a voice this time, unlike in GTA III. See more »

Goofs

During the mission "Overdose of Trouble", Maria asks Toni to drive to "the diner at Callahan Point" but in 1998 it's a doughnut shop. It's not until 2001 that it becomes a diner. See more »

Warning: Do not buy this game if you enjoy having fun.
28 March 2009 | by sinisterdrecc88See all my reviews

I was hoping for a nice, solid portable Grand Theft Auto ever since I first played Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas a while back. Well, God must've known this and have been against me, because this is the terrible portable Grand Theft Auto I get. It is not at all fun to me, and is only worth buying if you really want a portable Grand Theft Auto, but in that case, you should buy Vice City Stories, and not this crummy game. It's more dull and boring than anything, and makes the Grand Theft Auto franchise look stupid. It is a terrible game that even the most die-hard fan of Grand Theft Auto will despise.

1/10
