To me (after buying the game) I realised it was totally not worth the A$15 (tightass?). Is this the worst game of the GTA 3 era?

The worst GTA III Era is GTA Advance.

Minor edit:Besides, LCS has a good storyline, why don't you like it?

Well, of course, not outranking Vice city and San Andreas but LCS(overall) has a good storyline. It(well in my opinion), it may have fewer features but it has a better storyline than VCS.(I'm not saying VCS is bad, of course it has a better storyline then gta advance.)

Liberty City Stories wasn't bad game and in terms of status it should take place similar to GTA III. GTA III was first TPP GTA game in the series (I can't say it was first 3d) and GTA:LCS was first TPP and 3d GTA game on portable console (not like these abominations made on GBC). GTA:LCS mixed well known city with better mechanics taken from GTA:VC, it has nice mafia themed (first in the series) storyline, nice soundtrack, nice new cars and interesting characters. Only things that could be better was voice-acting (lack of almost every voice known from III except Vincent) and lenght of missions (but they supposed to be short since the game was made for handheld).

 

Worst in the GTA III era is definitely GTA:A, which was an abomination in GTA series.

In terms of story, I liked it. I liked both LCS and VCS because they explain and elaborate on the characters and story of both GTA III and VC. Now, when you go back to play them, you have some insight. Plus, you have to keep in mind that this game was made originally for the PSP, so I'm sure there were some limitations that the developers had to work with.

No, the worst is GTA Advance.

 

The GBA can handle 3D in Third-Person View (although the draw distance would be incredibly small), yet, they badly-made the game in top-down view which is worse than the first 4 games of the series.

 

In the other hand, GTA LCS was a FTW, it had a pretty good story, vehicles (the goddamn motorbikes and helicopters were finally in Liberty City, yay) and etc..., however, LCS has it's flaws, due to the limitations of the PSP.

Of course, there is special script built in to the forums software, which will crash your computer if you post rant about any GTA. You can rant about any games though. Didn't you know that? sarcasm.gif

While LCS isn't my favourite GTA I don't think it's the "worst". On the contrary it's a good game for what R* were trying to do with it, but yeah not really my cup of coffee. smile.gif

Game is good, the story tell us, why they aren't bikes in GTA III, or why is construction site in Fort Stauton. And more. Game is better than GTA III, because LCS is mix GTA III with most features seen in VC and some features from SA like camera or waypoint on map.

monocle.gif Really though, SA set the bar pretty high:

Cj can swim above and below - Toni drowns on the beach.

 

Cj can crouch and move about - Toni looks like he has four legs during a sprint.

 

Cj can recruit 7 gang members - Toni get shot by his own family if he bumps into their cars

 

There's hundreds of things SA has that LCS doesn't.

Car modding

Rural Terrain

Flight

Weapon and driving skills

Customised clothing

Girlfriends

Turf wars

A normal looking tank

Dozens of interiors

Multiple Assets

Gambling

 

I would list all of them but I'd need to replace my keyboard several times...

@TPAM you can't expect too much from a game which is PSP-ported lol.

 

But yes, I agree with you on "Hostile Leones", I seriously don't know why the Leones attack you if you try to hit on them.

Liar, you can fly in LCS, the helicopter is available in some missions and/or witth the use of trainers(and using the trainer you can even get the Dodo).

Though the game would have been better with a readily accessible chopper or two.

 

LCS is by far NOT the worst game of the GTA3 era, however it does feel fairly recycled. It's kinda like GTA3 on a newer engine.

Nope. The worst GTA(nowadays, not when it was released) is III. Advance was pretty cool for a gba game.

The worst GTA is III.

TAKE THAT BACK! tounge.gif Personally, III was my second game favourite of the GTA 3 Era, only losing to San Andreas (my favourite game of all time), and I preferred III over Vice City (as you can probably tell by my signature). Although you were right about Advance not being that bad, I think they did a really good job considering the specs of the Game Boy.

No GTA3 was, this is an extremely biased forum!

LCS is pretty much an updated 3 with better features.

How so? And GTA III had a better storyline anyway... And to say that the game that revived the series is still worse than a crappy handheld gameboy game that, mind you, is still better than Liberty City Stories.

I liked LCS. It was a good portable GTA game, the first good portable GTA. Advance is the worst in the GTA 3 era. I also liked LCS better than SA TBH, I loved the storyline, not as many annoying as hell missions.

It's not that bad, portables just weren't my cup of tea. The lack of music by actual artists pains me as much as it did in GTA III, besides that it's my least favorite PSP GTA game but that's only because there was only LCS and VCS. I'm just a sucker for the Lance Vance Dance i guess.

I dont think so. I think it LCS is pretty bad. Due to its Maverick, Swim, and clothes.

 

You can fly in LCS but can't swin.

 

One mission provides a method to steal a Maverick (LCS only), False Idol by Ned from its church Bedford Point.

 

GTA III, it pretty good enough. I like Claude's anim and his clothes.

With that idea in mind VC is a piece of sh*t. Heck every GTA except SA is sh*t according to your logic.

 

VC was released before SA so you can't expect it to be so much better. My point is that SA made so many improvements to GTA that LCS completely ignored. VC is a good game in my opinion, LCS could have been better in my opinion. I did at no point declare my slef as the god of GTA and therefore my opinion is just as insignificant as yours.

 

 

Liar, you can fly in LCS, the helicopter is available in some missions and/or witth the use of trainers(and using the trainer you can even get the Dodo).

 

The helicopter was available in LCS yes, but do you think rockstar intended for the player to ignor the aims of the mission, jack a bike, drive to the bridge, do an awkward jump and land on the roof of a building with no ingame texture? The LCS helicopter model is clearly a "Maveric" from VC so why when you get in does no name come up on the screen? It was a mistake that players found how to jack the helicopter. If players managed to get a helicopter then rockstar would have to come up with some excuse as to why you can't fly over the hills in the Shore Side Vale.

 

 

Though the game would have been better with a readily accessible chopper or two.

I totally agree with you, I'm not saying the game was absolutely repulsive and its existance is an insult and all disks should be smashed up, burnt and buried in the desert of SA. I'm a Marketing & Finance student do you think I could have done any better? No, I'm not saying the game was rubbish, I'm listing ways in which it could be better, and how in my opinion it was a bit of a let down after SA.

 

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 helicoptor 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 is pretty good for its side missions. I have yet to play the game again till I can continue Shoreside Vale's storyline. I'm not talking about "Trash Dash", FYI.

 

And if flying was included, you would expect those same flying missions from VCS. Like flying the biplane in a limited amount of time to air paramedic (darn, paramedic missions). So its good that the only jackable copter in the game is a mission only one. Which makes no flying side missions possible.

The worst game in the 3 era is GTA Advance or Vice City Stories.
