Storyline

I was wondering, what was the storyline about mainly? Was it good or just left a bad taste in your mouth?

Actually, the storyline is quite in-depth and satisfying. Mike, a small-time criminal, is the student of a mentor, who is also a criminal, called Vinnie. It seems that they have been saving up some money, enough to leave Liberty City for good, at least. The game starts when they have gathered enough cash, and are about to leave Liberty City. Vinnie insists that he and Mike do a few more jobs for the local Mafia (a familiar gang from GTAIII, like all of the gangs in GTA: Advance) so they can scrape a bit more moolah together and lead the perfect lifestyle, wherever. But just as they are about to leave, their getaway car blows-up, probably sabotage, with Vinnie and all the cash inside. The rest of the game follows Mike's quest for revenge, and believe me, all is not what it seems.

 

SPOILER ALERT!!!:

 

It turns out that Vinnie faked getting his brains blown all over Portland, and Mike kills him. It also seems that Vinnie was working with King Courtney, leader of the Yardies, and he wanted to get rid of Mike once and for all. You also kill King Courtney, but this is counter-acted by the fact that King Courtney is alive in GTAIII, which is set after GTA: Advance.

That doesn't hold water either since Asuka is alive and well in GTA Advance.

Then how come 8-Ball's hands are unbandages and unburnt? And why isn't Catalina leader of the Columbian Cartel? And why is Tony's Portland Safehouse still intact?

 

As for the King Courtney plothole: It's either a very stupid mistake on Rockstar's behalf or King Courtney is the name given to all leaders of the Liberty City Yardies. I believe that the Liberty City timeline goes something like this:

 

Liberty City Stories (1998)

Advance (1999-2000)

GTAIII (2001)

I wrote up the plot as part of my GTA Storylines page. I've not actually played it but based it on a script at Gamefaqs. The script made it sound like King Courtney begs Mike to not kill him and then survives, so that's how I wrote it.

I wouldn't put be surprised if R* did kill him off though as they did the same with Miguel in LCS.

Right, reading the script it seems like GTA Advance takes place just before GTA3 as 8-Ball is arrested at the end of GTA Advance, leading up to his prison transport at the beginning of GTA3.
