This game is terrible as a console title plain and simple. On PSP this game was really good and an example of what can be done with the PSP but on PS2 it doesnt hold up at all.
Graphics- The graphics are idenitcal to the PSP version complete with insane jaggies, low res textures, low poly models and a terrible frame rate. It doesnt make any sense, this game looks worse then GTA3 and it has a worse frame rate.
Sound- The sound is good, classic GTA but the radio stations dont have the same kind of effort its console cousins do. Voice acting is decent.
Gameplay/Control- If you have played GTA you know what your getting into. The only problem is the horrible frame rate interferes.
Overall- If you own a PSP get this game and play it on the go, you will love it but we all expect more from our PS2 even for $20.

This was a good one. I liked how it was a revisit, it was nice to see liberty city again. It seemed to have better graphics, and textured than gta 3. It still is the same thing as the other gta's, with the same elements and engine. This one doesent have a good soundtrack, i think vice city has the best soundtrack out of all of them.
The thing is, the story missions are very good, but after you beat it, there is nothing to do at all, but just drive around. I like all the nice costumes you get.
I think this one is more humorous and funny than the other ones, for some reason. I like all the different kinds of characters you work for, and i like all the revisiting ones too.
This game is all pretty good, but there is nothing to do after you beat the storyline, its almost like your finished with the game right then. And all the payphones dont have missions, they are all just racing, nothing more. And just blowing up cars, and killing pedestrians, and causing some destruction gets very old. Like it has been from the past few sequels, the same old stuff.
For such a good franchise, Liberty City Stories is a terrible game. It's got the replay value I love about GTA, but the storyline was so weak I wouldn't want to play it again. Rockstar could have easily added more missions to this game which would have made it instantly better. I'm sorry but this game was terrible. 5 for replay though.
