    I hate it. It's SO overrated. All u do is run around and kill people. The developers just packed a lot of violence in this krap and shipped it out.

    Ahhhh, sorry...that STILL sounds more like a port then a NEW release. Sorry, but GTA games are for mindless fun for about 5 minutes till you discover all you can do is drive around and shoot people and steal there cars. The game's levels are to messed up anyway, so whats the point? The streets are filled with people that do everything you do, it's more like a every man for Ahhhh, sorry...that STILL sounds more like a port then a NEW release.

The streets are filled with people that do everything you do, it's more like a every man for himself, then a real crime game (EVERY ONE IS DOING CRIMES) it makes the person feel so unimportant to the city. Thats why True Crime well blow this game out of the water. Expand

  1. Both games' inherent brilliance remains intact. As playgrounds, they're marvelous. As experiences they're undeniably powerful. [Mar 2004, p.77]
  2. GTA's go-anywhere, do-anything gameplay design is something that truly shouldn't be missed by any gamer. The GTA Double Pack is a must-have for any console gamer.

    It's everything a videogame should be; innovative, compelling, challenging, long-lasting. And spiked with controversy and a wonderful wit, it's also something that so few videogames can ever be - cool.
