Is this game any good or is it the same as Gta 1?

Don't buy it unless you don't have a PS2 or XBOX or whatever it came out on; if you do though and plan on travelling a lot and already own a GBA I would advise it as I can only think of a few titles worth playing on GBA. Also, the only other real instance I would recommend it in is if you are a diehard GTA fan - but remember, it is only a GBA game, do not expect too much of it. I played it, and didn't really like it. That's just me.

 

It is based off GTA3, also, and it is a top-down view. The characters are based off of the art of certain characters from the PS2 version, but names are changed here and there and missions are different. It is a refreshing experience mission wise, but it is hard to get quality on a portable system. Unless you think you can deal with the odd controls and top-down, I would not recommend it.

Like GTA1 and 2, the view is top-down, however the missions are played in the style of the 3D games in which you move from one boss to another as the story progresses, rather than just finding a pay phone. There are also side missions/goals, such as Vigalante, finding 100 packages, rampages, and the races, etc.

 

There's more information on GTANet's site:

No, it is not based off of GTA3. It's a new game with a new story that takes place in Liberty City one year before GTA3.

No, there are new characters and there are some returning ones, such as 8-Ball and Azuka, which obviously are dressed differently because the game takes place at a different time. None of the characters were renamed, as it is a new story in the same world that falls in to the same timeline as 3, VC, and SA.

Hm, maybe it is a good game, but there are 2 problems:

1. No informations. R* gave us 12 screenshots and one trailer. That's it. Ok, something about the place and the maincharacter, but nothing else. Maybe it would be bought by more people if they had made more advertising or such things, in germany yu can buy it only at Toys 'R' us, and we haven't got many of them.

2. We are not in the year 90s where 2D games are not up to date, ok, the maybe the GBA isn't good enough for 3D games, but why created R* at all such a game for GBA? blink.gif

 

I hope they do it better when developing the PSP GTA whatsthat.gif

 

 

 

No, it is not based off of GTA3. It's a new game with a new story that takes place in Liberty City one year before GTA3.

It's one year before GTA3? Are there some parts of the story or some characters from GTA3? Like in San Andreas, the guy at the mission "Farewell, my love", or is it a complete new story?

SPOILER

8-Ball is arrested at the end of GTA Advance, he escapes with Fido at the begining of GTA3

 

Asuka, 8-Ball and King Courtney are all in GTA Advance.

 

Overall I liked it, however I say this as someone who has a four hour commute every day, and find anything that doesn't involve amature rappers demanding money or teeny boppers having loud sexually explicit conversations pretty f*cking entertaining. The GBA does have limited 3D capabilities, as demonstrated by Driver and Need For Speed Underground, however GBA Advance is top-down.

 

I think the map was much too large, and a lack of real landmarks made it very difficult to navigate, especially portland. I think a smaller, but richer map would have improved the game dramatically.

 

That having been said, I really did like it,

For what it was, I liked it, but only because I downloaded the ROM (**COUGH**ROMSAREILLEGAL**COUGH**) and was able to use a controller. biggrin.gif

 

I never could beat that one final mission where you need to get all the checkpoints in a specific amount of time.

 

But, yeah, if you can find a used or cheap copy, I'd say get it.
