What do these ratings mean?

I like this game. That is the only way to describe it.

It is a beautiful example of what can be done on the PS2 hardware, though Rockstar never dissapoint.

I can't say much, but a game this contraversial has to be good. It has everything, bikes, cars, whores, planes, a character who knows how to swim, trains and even a tractor. TRACTOR!

Ahem.

So yes, there are some major improvments. The story, though never that vital to GTA, has changed from Mafia to Gansta, making it seem more original and fun. Which it is. When you get past the first mission, surpisingly difficult yet random, it's a whole can of joy.

Missions after that get harder slowly. You can use cheats to enjoy the gameplay, and even if you play without using cheats, the game is not impossible and almost satisfying to play without them.

Graphics, absolutly stunning. The radio, varied R&B if you can call it that, though if you don't like that sort of thing, the chat station is hilarious. The controls are similar to the old GTAs, so no real fuss there.

The only thing is... It's a little... Fussy.

The mission system has not changed. The missions are still boring at times and if you mess up once, bam. All over again. This can be frustrating.

Also, the story is a little thin and there is too many oppertunities to be killed or whatever. The multiplayer system is weak and should have been revised before selling. There are also frequent glitches. I think people would prefer a little loading time between cities rather than flying into a building that suddenly appears in front of you.

However, you cannot let those difficulties spoil this game that beats almost everything imaginable.
