  • Summary: Grand Theft Auto is back. The cars are faster. The streets are busier. The bad guys are nastier. The police are angrier. And now, the FBI and the Army are getting involved...
    Seven ruthless gangs are involved in a ruthless power struggle and it is up to you to make a name for yourself.

    This, combined to other titles, is the game that made me excited about the world of video games!
    I think I've replayed at least 20 times in

    quite a blast yet 100% completion is required for the good ending
    the driving is fluid (as much as a top down gta game could be, and obviously some cars are less fluid than others) combat is better than grand theft auto 1 and a one of a kind mission system based on "respect" killing rival gang members and beating missions can help raise this respect but fail these missions and kill too much of one gang and you'll loose that gangs respect but you'll gain their rivals respect, GTA2 (if we're talking getting the good ending) is VERY VERY HARD this game felt like it was made for people who always finish a game 100% with no stone (or in this case cars) left unturned, to me its quite similar to super mario the lost levels which was a sequel to super mario but with the difficulty ramped up (except GTA2 is a completely new experience and doesn't recycle much of anything from GTA1) but of course not everyone's here for the story no you're here for mayhem! and you can partake in a lot of mayhem! wild weapons, cheats, fast cars and a wanted level system that goes from 0-6 (4 in downtown and 5 in residential) it's wild and a bit wacky and takes itself somewhat seriously and sometimes doesn't give a piss at the same time, if you can get this game for cheap i would recommend doing so but i wouldn't pay much more than 20$ for this game in the modern age.

    It's a free game (you can get it from the Rockstar website) and actually quite fun to play even today... but only as an arcade game. TheIt's a free game (you can get it from the Rockstar website) and actually quite fun to play even today... but only as an arcade game. The rampages, gang missions and the 'karma' style gang relations with the tripartite of gangs is quite interesting. One minute you'll be working with the yakuza, the next you'll be killing them. There's no real story- it's just an arcade free-raoming rampage mayhem. It's not too easy so it isn't boring. The game is pretty long given its arcadish feel, and the only way to finish it (aside from doing all the missions) is to gain maximum amount ofm oney to unlock bonus levels. That will take hundreds of hours. The intro kinda sums up the game really... or at least the context anyway. Definitely worth checking out if you're bored. Expand

    This game was quite some fun back in the days, but did not inspire the same awe that every subsequent GTA game managed to do.
