    On a visual level, the game looks simply awesome. It's not quite as detailed as "Vice City" or "San Andreas," but it absolutely destroys the original "GTA 3."
  2. One of the best handheld games I have ever played, hands down... This is the type of game that changes the definition of a handheld.
  3. Rockstar has cut no corners in crafting the game for the PSP and it shows. This is the real deal... A few control issues hold it back from getting a perfect score, but we'll save that for "Vice City Stories" (we hope).

    Whilst the game isn't as impressive as San Andreas, it's still incredible and some aspects that were missing from "GTA III" have been included in LCS like motorbikes and more aggresive police.
  5. Everything you loved about the original games is in here, in glorious, put-in-your-pocket color. This is a must-have title for any portable punk.
  6. While the game is definitely a fine technical achievement and one of the best PSP games to date, the dull storyline and basic mission design do bring the whole thing down a bit.

    An amazing technological showcase for the PSP, but makes the biggest series in gaming feel small. [Jan 2006, p.86]

    I Know its been said but this is a handheld game not a full console, it does have console quality graphics the controls are fine after a I Know its been said but this is a handheld game not a full console, it does have console quality graphics the controls are fine after a quick adjustment(they can be customised) and to those who moan about the missions, save points and shallowness remember this has never been achived before, they have already announced a second GTA and things can and will improve, GTA III wasn't perfect but we loved it. A year ago you wouldn't have believed this at all.... Expand
