Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories is the ninth part of the GTA series. This game is the prequel to Grand Theft Auto III. It was available on the PSP on October 24, 2005. The main character is Antonio “Toni” Cipriani. He had to live abroad for the time, due to his involvement in a murder case (Toni follows orders from Salvatore Leone). After that, Toni decided to return to Liberty City. Here, he returned to the crime’s life and actions which related to organized criminal activities.
In Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, players still control the character from a third perspective. The game has a multiplayer feature, allowing six players to participate in a battle mission (via wifi system). Besides, the multiplayer game has seven different challenge systems to enjoy. A downside is that it limits the ability to use the aircraft. You can only use the aircraft in certain areas. In addition, this version also limits some other features such as the ability to swim and climb. Removing them will make players difficult to experience but it also brings many interesting challenges. In case of falling into areas with deep water, you will surely be killed. Therefore, players have to be careful during the move.
In the single-player mode, players still have to participate in a task system that is similar to the game’s plot. Each will take place around Liberty City. To move to many areas, players can drive a car or motorbike. The left corner of the screen also displays a mini-map to observe and quickly reach the required location. In a mission, the game will set certain goals. You have to complete them to go forward. Besides, players also have to ensure their own safety, survive intense gun battles, and avoid being arrested by police. Completing each mission, the game will provide certain bonuses to pay for your life (buying houses, clothes, weapons, cars …).
We have also introduced another game version for Play Station 2, you can see here.
