Basically this.

VCS has a better, sunnier feel to LCS's surroundings. Sure, LCS does a great job with the gloom of Liberty City but it all comes down to personal taste and it was just a liftoff from the VC and San Andreas engine. VCS reintroduced swimming and flying but failed to bring climbing, redid the engine and overall improved and filled what LCS didn't.

Why not get both?-I mean the Trilogy Pack with BOTH LCS and VCS is only $19.82, which is the EXACT same as just one game is by itself(you are basically getting 2 games for the price of 1). Pretty common sense if you ask me.? confused.gif

That is ONLY true on the PSP version. The PS2 version was fine-no problems, unless you tried to put too many cars into them.

Personally I like them both, They are both very good for the PSP. The storylines are equally good in both games but if I had to pick one I would probarbly pick Liberty City Stories because I like the colour scheme a lot better turn.gif

I like Vice City Stories better than Liberty City Stories. In Vice City Stories, you have better gameplay options (e.g. Empire Building), more side missions and more vehicles, better missions and VCS has helicopters.

I found LCS a very dissapointing game to be frank, San Andreas set the bar quite high but going from:

Harrior jets to not being able to fly unless you jack a compor on a mission

Swimming underwater to not being able to swim

Car modding garage to having to reverse in and out a pay and spay trying to get that colour that everyone else seems to have but you.

Being able to crouch and walk about in that position to not being able to crouch at all.

Having weapon skills and being able to dual weild pistols and micro smgs to having awefull weapons with an exeedingly slow rate of fire.

Being able to buy safe-houses all over the state to, owning you own little section of slum on the first island, the most inconveniently positioned apartment of the second and a pink condo on the third.

Bing able to go to several clothing stores, tatoo parlors and barber shops to customise your look to being awarded a pair of under-pants for doing jump on a bike.

Being able to recruit gang members and take over terratory to being killed by your own family for accidently bumping into a Leone car.

Having extra modes of transport such as the go-cart, the hover craft, the BMX and the quadbike to standing infront of a bike sales room waiting to show some morbidly obese pedestrian how fast you can drive a faggio.

Having almost every terrain possible to explor to a bunch of hills on the Vale that don't seem to understand physics.

Being able to learn several different fighting techniques and being able to use stealth on enemy gangs with a knife to having one Cippriani punch and having it looking like Toni has seven legs when he sprints.

Being able to go on dates to unlock sspecial aspects of the game such as not loosing weapons when being arrested to running erands for for some drugged up Mob-Boss wife while being attacked by some minor biker gang.

Being able to go to betting shops and casino's to make a fortune or even get in debt and have the casino sned goons after you to having a deranged mother that not only calls the hit on you but also has X-ray vision to be able to see through a wall and see the photos you took of Casa.

Having multiple optional side missions to set up a Casino heist to collecting rotting bodies for some failed congressman to eat as he flee's the city.

I don't know if I missed anything, it wasn't a bad game but it's like Rockstar released it as soon as they'd finished the plot.

I mean lets look where they are now, CJ is seen on variouse bill boards round GTA 4 in a pressed suit. Toni is severly over weight and sitting outside his mothers house giving orders to a mute phyco.

LCS had a good plot but it was released to soon, San Andreas made it look bad.

GTA: Liberty city stories wasn't enough for me but GTA: Vice city stories is a better game to play on a PS2 or a PSP

I actually liked Vice City Stories more than Vice City because of the storyline, the entertaining missions, the Empire Buildings and all that stuff. I don't remember much from Liberty City Stories but I sure know that I liked that game too. I think I'm going to play the game again in the near future.

Anyway, both games are great. I think Vice City Stories was the best of them.

I don't know why, but I could never get into LCS which is strange because I love the mafia theme.

It's still a good game, but something is just off putting. Maybe because I wasn't a huge fan of GTA III's LC.

VCS is a better game IMO.

I have to agree with most of the others that lcs is a big step down, but the storyline and missions bring it right back up! The storyline is absolutely amazing (seriously, I play it over and over, I even bought it for my vita it's that good!) and the missions are action packed! Especially on the third island, whilst GTA vcs has enabled more things, such as planes, helicopters, hovercraft, more cars, etc. So it depends on what you buy a GTA for, lcs if you love storylines (or wondering around, there's more to see...), VCs if you like flying or fairgrounds, or glitchy ass graphics etc... I like GTA lcs! wink.gif

In my opinion, VCS had empire building which was an awesome feature. Upgrading your businesses, pretty much what others have listed.
Personally, I think LCS had a better storyline and a awesome mafia feel.

I'll choose Vice City Stories because it's in Vice City and the 80's.

In regards to this I think empire building would've been better in LCS. All those ugly buildings really clutter up VC's beautiful setting.

VCS should've had something like VC's assets IMO.
