Was LCS as good as other GTAs?

Honestly, I wasn't that big a fan of Liberty City Stories. It was good but I didn't think it was nearly as good as other GTAs. I thought it was a bit boring. What do other people think?

I personally really liked playing this game, the storyline was immersive, characters were awesome, cutscenes weren't too long-winded and it had a lot to do in terms of side missions. I don't think it was any worse than some other GTA Games.

 

Also, you could have just used this topic :^:

LCS is not the best GTA, yet it's not the worst. I enjoy LCS a lot, but it doesn't have that magic feeling that III did. However, the game is still amazing to me.

I'd say its a good example of what a GTA game should be - a dude from the bottom rising his way up the ladder. Sure, it didn't have the best graphics of it's time, nor did it have half the gimmicky features San Andreas had, but to me, LCS produced a fun story in a classic location.

LCS was my first GTA.

 

This game got me to like GTA, I found the story quite immersive and also a lot of fun at the same time.

I enjoyed it more than Vice City Stories that's for sure, not to mention it was the first actual one that I owned in the series.

 

From all the games in the series this one easily goes in my top 5

LCS is my all time favorite GTA.

This is what the game should be.

No melo-drama storyline, protagonist does not get humanized and made into a sympathetic character. Game has plenty of things to do that is fun.

I enjoyed it more than I enjoyed SA, honestly. [not lying rly]

There's just something about it's atmosphere and game-play that I liked a lot more than the other GTAs.

It's my favourite GTA. GTA IV and V are tying in at second place. It was also my first GTA I owned (not played but owned for myself) so it's got a very special connection to me in an emotional way and nothing can ever beat that.

Somewhat inactive thread but meh.

 

I liked it. Except from the fact that the protagonist wasn't like past ones, I liked it a little more than GTA 3. Much better than VCS too. I suppose it's because the protagonist actually looks similar to how he did in the past game, and Liberty was nicer than Vice for the PSP imo.

I liked it. I think it had some of the best stations, characters, etc.

 

Especially the talk station, and the fact we played as toni.

For a PSP game? it was great and well done.

 

For a PS2 game?

 

There was a game called SAN ANDREAS released 2 years before this game, and i think this game made by another company. otherwise, no one can explain 64x64 textures on PS2 while SA had 512x512 ones..

Well it was only a port, it wasn't necessarily intended for release on PS2 anyway.

 

I love GTA LCS and enjoyed playing through it many times, It's definitely not the worst in the series so in answer to the original question, In my opinion, Yes, GTA LCS was as good as other GTA Games

It was a good game but the complete lack of aircraft was really bad, and there is no excuse as hackers were able to spawn a Maverick, Hunter, Police Maverick, VCN Maverick and a Dodo and the Maverick was obtainable via an exploit. GTA Vice City Stories was much better.

i don care if it was only a port, it was 2006 and they just couldnt port psp version directly to ps2 thats not ethic.

Well, they didn't have to put it on PS2 at all - I guess they just did it this way, quickly, so more people who don't own a PSP would be able to play it.

Plus, it is the case for me. I've never owned a PSP, but I've always had a PS2. Thanks to R* porting it over, I was able to purchase and play LCS and VCS. R* made more money this way, and more people were able to play this wonderful game. Works out on both ends. :^:

I liked it! It's bad you couldn't swim, and only fly a helicopter with a glitch, but it wasn't worse than other GTA's, especially as a PSP-port. And i liked the characters like Tony & Salvatore.

It was my first GTA and I think it's one of the best ones. I didn't really mind that you can't swim since there is pretty much nothing you can do at sea. The vehicles were probably the best ones in 3D Era.

 

If the disc wouldn't be so easy to break now, I'd be currently playing it.

One of the hardest imo. But it was great III was still a bit more special. VCS was one of the best ports i think. Cant really compare them they are all great in their own ways. (sorry for my spelling)

For its time, as a psp game? The game was f*cking amazing. But I think Vice City Stories did it a lot better. It feels like a mobile version of III tbh while VCS feels like a mix between Vice City and San Andreas on a psp.

Not an amazing game but not terrible either. Overall I'd say it's the weakest GTA along with VCS however.
