Rewrite the whole story and center it around some worthwile, well-written characters, not a wannabe, self-centered Italian gang with a fetish for poorly sewn suits and an exuberant ego.

If LCS had a PC port, should be like this

 

Storyline:

- More comedy, more out-of-style moments, more hilarious jokes.

- More Missions

- Restricting some missions till you meet some requirements like in GTA Chinatown Wars.

 

Game:

- More San Andreas Engine

- Toni's Ability to Swim and that there should be a barricade that prevents you to swim to Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale till you unlock them.

- Ability to buy Drugs

 

Gangs:

- Yardies not attacking Toni after completing "Night of the Livid Dreads"

- Toni being able to recruit the Leones after completing "The Made Man"

- Leones appearing at Shoreside Vale and Staunton Island

- The Sicilian Mafia appearing on the streets of Shoreside Vale and will attack Toni

- Bigger Role for the Southside Hoods

 

Vehicles:

- The inclusion of Greenwood, 

- Ability to use a Taxi to drive Toni somewhere

 

Characters:

- Luigi and Joey appearing in the game

 

Clothes:

- Leone Suit having a Black Tie

Bumping this thread ,here is few things I would have liked to see in LCS

-Ability to recruit Leone gangs as bodyguards after 100% completion (like vice city)

 

- A little more expansion to the map so like having countryside in upstate liberty 

 

-Make the dodo flyable like GTA III

 

-Have more interiors other than safehouses

(There were more interiors in VCS so hardware limitations weren't an excuse)

First thing that comes to my mind are better cinematics. This game barely had any mo capped cutscenes

Think the game is fine as it is, however I'd improve little things like the Leones not shooting at you if you shoot them, similar to how GSF works in San Andreas, and also better cinematics like the user above suggested.

I think this game could have been so much better if it has ability to swim, melee system of VCS or Bully, and ride helicopters.

A great improvement would be having this game use the San Andreas engine. Since this games theme is based upon the mafia, you should be able to recruit members from the street and take over neighbourhoods. Another improvement would be to have more interiors. I would’ve loved to have been able to enter clothing stores, police stations, hospitals, etc

Maybe I'm too much of a GTA3 formalist, but have someone other than Toni Cipriani as the main character. To me it makes no sense that a sedentary high-ranking mafioso was running around like Fido blowing sh*t up and networking around the city just 3 years earlier. In the intervening time it looks like he gained 40-50 pounds (plausible) and 20 years (not so plausible). It messes with the canon a bit.

 

You can even have it be Toni's younger brother or whatever, to keep the Ma Cipriani stuff in there if you really want. But the differences in the Tonis between '98 and '01 don't make a whole lot of sense to me.

I'd make it a full out new title instead of a PSP side-game, that would be based on the San Andreas version of RenderWare. I'd expand the map to feature more of the state Liberty is in. I'd change the storyline so that Toni is a caporegime that just returned from jail instead of an associate who just came back from a 4 year long vacation in Vice City and acts like he's entitled to something. I'd make Vinnie the main antagonist instead of Torini. I'd change the reason for their conflict to be Portland Harbor.

Not really vic and cj aren't from Liberty so they didn't have to deal with polluted water plus it seems weird to have a soldier who can't swim

GTA San Andreas and Vice City Stories being the only 3D era titles that featured swimming is very understandable to me, as by the time R* were developing GTA III and Vice City, they hadn't yet implemented it in the series. They did that with San Andreas, but what about Liberty City Stories? Well, being the first portable GTA title, their main goal was mostly to port an improved version of GTA III that can be played as a handheld title, with a prequel story, Vice City's engine improvements and some minor San Andreas assets (few animations, the ability moving the camera while in vehicles, and such). They didn't plan to make it that big compared to Vice City Stories, which introduced unique combat techniques and empire building, and of course reintroduced swimming.

To me biggest problems were cutscenes, even though i like the game so much, i'd rather have 50 missions instead of 70 with better cutscenes, this game coulda been better than gtaIII like really but no, it ain't

No.

BY MAKING A PC VERSION

I can't wait for the final version of that LCS PC mod that has its own thread in the modding section.

 

Apart from that I guess the music could have been better imo. It should have had more famous 70's disco and 90's pop songs instead of made-for-the-game songs (although those "fake" songs were kinda nice).

Helicopters of all kinds.

 

Swimming and climbing.

 

Better ways to earn money. It seems so far I've earned more  money delivering cars than by doing missions!

After Love On The Run, there should be walls around Fort Staunton and a few entrances to get the hidden packages in the destroyed area and the tank, also around the destroyed neighborhood, cars would drive around and pedestrians would walk without any danger, like in GTA III:

 

Spoiler

fortstaunton.jpg

 

 

After Munitions Dump, Yardies shouldn't be hostile towards you.

 

I'd change Diablos quotes from Afroamerican to Spanglish.

Spoiler

Examples of quotes:

  • Let's get some chicas, tio
  • Diablos hasta la muerte!
  • Imma kill you, parguela
  • Don't f*ck with the Diablos
  • Give some of that porro (weed) you have
  • Hey do you have some perico (coke)?
  • Let's get borracho (drunk)

 

Maverick spawning in the Francis International heliport (west side).

 

Make Hellenbach, Thunder-Rodd, Angel and Avenger spawn on the streets (mostly on middle-class areas).

 

Add Stinger and Cheetah to the Car-Azy Give Away list.

 

Bikers' riding Angel bike on the streets of Liberty, also Avenging Angels riding Avenger' bikes as well.

 

Make shoppers drive vehicles (like in GTA III)

 

Spoiler

shop.jpg

 

From the left to the right

 

Fat shopping girl:

  • Vehicles: Sedans and hatchbacks (Manana, Kuruma and Sentinel)
  • Radio station #1: Head Radio
  • Radio station #2: Flashback FM
  • Spawns in: Newport, Bedford Point and Torrington

Old shopping lady:

  • Vehicles: Low class vehicles (Idaho, Esperanto, Moonbeam, Stallion and Perennial)
  • Radio station #1: Double Clef FM
  • Radio station #2: LCFR
  • Spawns in: Fort Staunton, Newport, Bedford Point and Torrington

Blonde shopping girl:

  • Vehicles: SUV's (Blista, Patriot and Landstalker)
  • Radio station #1: Rise FM
  • Radio station #2: Lips 106
  • Spawns in: Fort Staunton (at day), Newport, Belleville Park (at night), Bedford Point and Torrington

Black executive girl:

  • Vehicles: Upper class vehicles (V8 Ghost, Banshee, Cheetah, Stretch, Stinger, Infernus, Phobos and Deimos) and SUV's (Blista, Patriot and Landstalker)
  • Radio station #1: Lips 106
  • Radio station #2: LCFR
  • Spawns in: Newport, Belleville Park, Bedford Point, Torrington, Francis International and Cedar Grove (at day)

 

 

Improvement on LCS soundtrack, especially Lips, Head Radio (using real-life artists) and Flashback FM (I don't have nothing against Giorgio Moroder' music but I believe Flashback would be good with more variety of 80's artists), the other stations would have a small addition of songs. Also including new stations as well; a station like Radio X but focusing on Brit, Indie, Noise and Shoegaze, a classic rock station, a soul/r&b station (probably Liberty Soul FM (beta station in III) appearing in LCS) and a latin station to Diablos and Cartel.

Rockstar should’ve released this game on PS2 first so it could have more features than it did on PSP. That’s why there’s nothing in this game, the PSP can’t handle much whereas the PS2 could handle a bit more. It could handle San Andreas couldn’t it?

Make the Sicilians more memorable antagonists. outside of that, nothing! Liberty City Stories is a masterpiece & shall remain the same.

 

Exactly this. Almost 14 years later and the complaints about this game are as unreasonable and uninformed as ever. Seeing people after all these years still crying that LCS isn't like SA is a reminder of why I love this game so much.

gang wars, having the ability to recruit gang members (at least being able to unlock it after you became a made man) and a better main antagonist.
(or at least make Massimo Torini a more recurrent character to the events of ther game)

I would change the story, I would make it more serious and more about the mobsters, the organization.

 

Well.. if that's too much, then... I would add a black tie to Tony's black suit.

Fixed that for you. Seriously, why do people always replace the "i" in Toni's first name with a "y"?

Because Toni sounds feminine and Tony sounds masculine.

Some great improvements to the game performance, improved vehicle physics, and crouching.

 

Helicopters would be cool and I would love to have them be accessable without a trainer or difficult trick, but what many people don't consider is that most of the rooftops in lcs are invisible and not solid.

So yeah I would love to see helicopters in this game but with fixed roofs.
