  1. When it comes down to it, stripping away the gameplay, all GTA2 brings to the table is foul language, gratuitous violence, and aging 2D graphics. Once my bloodlust was quenched, GTA became a monotonous and painfully shallow game.

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. The second GTA game. GTA II is perhaps the most strangest GTA in all of the series. II is set "Anywhere, USA" and its a retrospective game it is really strange, so if all GTA games are connected then II most be the last one since it is set in the future or something. I think the game is really cool and this is also the first GTA to be written by Dan Houser and he wrote the rest of the GTA'S after this and RDR and Bully and Max Payne 3. But is the game better than GTA I no not really GTA I is slightly better but that doesn't mean GTA II is a bad game. Also everybody says that the main character from GTA III is the main character in II but how can he be still alive since II is set years and I mean years after GTA IV, so I don't think its the same Claude. To finish this review I give GTA II, 7/10. Full Review »
