    • The game itself is generally good but the graphics/framerate ruin it.

HABROMAN SAYS: Loved it. This game is very similar to the original GTA, and s great game. Not the BEST graphics, but who cares. Missions arent really worth doing either, they do work well as something to do when custom rampages are tiresome.

But, being the crazed GTA fan I am, I got all the packages, and boy thats worth it by far. If you can state somethin better than bombing and torching peds with a Flamethrower and 'Launcher on a GBA, A cookie to you! lol.gif:SAID HABROMAN

This is what this boils down to, if you loved and played GTA 1 this game is just fine. Its is plain and simple as that. If u started with GTA 3 then the game will automaticly suck for you. I personally loved GTA 1 so my oppion is skewed about this game. Overall game was good, but a bunch of little bugs/flaws is accually what hurt it. The only thing i HATE about it is the mission "Smackdown", it took me a while but I got it (If you have played you know what I mean suicidal.gif ) lol

Overall I would recommend this game and I give it 1.5 out of 2 thumbs up :-P

lol i laugh cuz I started with top down screen for GTA---and I'd be fine with another one(godforbid). Its funny how if u started with GTA 3 you can't go back to top down and If U started With GTA 1 ur fine. I guess I get to enjoy all GTA games :-P.

GTA PSP will be ausome!

Well the only thing I have to say about this game is that it is not very great but if you want to play Grand Theft Auto on the go then this is the game to get... enough said.

Eh, the game is so-so. One of the last missions is near impossible to beat and the only real useful gun in the whole game is the Shotgun. The game dosn't really have a good story, but when does a Grand Theft Auto game? The graphics are actually good (in my opinon) for the GBA, its like the old classics: Grand Theft Auto, GTA 2, Gta 1969. The Game play is "eh", Driving around can be fun but causing chaos is really hard to do when it takes only 2 hits from a cop to cause you to being "Busted". I would only recomend this game to a true die hard Grand Theft Auto fan, who didn't mind playing part 1 or 2.

I have it. Most people flame it. It's not great but it's not as bad as people say (in my opinion) and if your a GTA guru then go for it definitely.

The game is slightly better then OK, some aspects of the original GTA (like it always being sunny and happy and the music) have been brought back but they've tried to combine it with too much of GTAIII's stuff. It takes far to much to kill someone for the aiming system you open up with an UZI or an Assault rifle and half the bullets missing because either you can't aim or they go over the enemy as they drop breifly after each hit.

 

On saying that some things are pretty cool it's like the old gta, but the missions are too simple no ones with remote control cars or follow the bad guy missions mainly drive here shoot him drive there and smash into this. Also it's GTA but there are no mopeds or motorbikes that annoyed me slightly. My only other complaint really is stopping cars the brakes are crap half the time you end up reversing because you are trying to stop, though usually you have to reverse a bit anyway to get to where you wanted to be. Oh and I didn't like being able to flip cars it doesn't feel right in the top-down style they had.

 

But overall I would say if you love GTA buy it.

As a GBA fan and massive GTA fan, I say "It's Great, I love it"

I found the story great, even though I haven't completed it yet.

The controls are a bit, confused.gif and the graphics are ok for a GBA game.

 

Overall rating: 8/10.

 

If you're a GBA fan and GTA I sugest you get it!

NB: The whole point of having a poll is so that you can just vote if you have nothing else other than your rating to add to the topic. turn.gif

Well, if it were on the DS it would be much better. You can imagine driving cars using the stylus and using it also for manual aiming.

No NO NO No.> It's not worth getting.

 

Especially if you are at or above the legal age to get it... or unless you do a HECK of a lot of traveling and want to kill time but if not there's just really little point in getting it cuz it's too expensive anyways. Just pop in a 3-D GTA and have more fun.

 

I'm sorry but i just bought the game like a bunch of weeks ago.. went on two trips but only played it like 10 mins max. Just didn't find it fun/worth the money.

I got it in the January sales this year. I wasn't expecting much but it fully delivered.

 

Like other people on here, I loved the first GTA, but this one has really taken the first game, tweaked the look and feel and then put it into the more familiar GTAIII setting which more people will have played.

 

The controls work way better than the first game, with the walking (which was really awkward) improved by using a Smash TV style approach to directional movement plus a lock-on key for strafing and firing. Driving around also seems to be more fun and the cars seem more realistic somehow.

 

Weapon effects are great as well. Another thing that was weak in the first game.

 

This thing eats up train journeys for breakfast biggrin.gif

 

Yes, I miss the "GOURANGUA!" guys from the first game as well tounge.gif

I don't own a gameboy advance, I just a gameboy color.

 

I love playing grand theft auto on PS2, and I've played III, Vice City, and San Andreas.

 

But I don't think buying a gameboy advance just to play this game would be a waste of my time. I've never liked gameboy games anyways. The music annoys the hell out of me, and I just really hate the controls...

 

I really don't even know why they would put a game on a gameboy, but hey that's just my opinion.

It's average in my opinion.

Comparable to GTA 1, but doesn't have the same 'feeling'.
