A full-fledged criminal underworld ready for all to explore. And hey, it even fits in your pocket. By Juan Castro

In the Beginning
Few games actually change the way you feel about a platform. They take the established standard and tear it to pieces. Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City (LCS) Stories is one such game. It takes the preconceptions about what a handheld can do and totally ignores them. It provides an experience so large and so complex that it's a wonder that it actually runs at all. The GTA series has always succeeded in sheer scope and complexity, and thankfully, it's no different on the as a handheld. There are no hardcore sacrifices, either. LCS uses the same kind of intricate 3D engine that put the series (and the developer) on the map with GTA III.

With LCS, Rockstar managed to include just about everything fans would come to expect from a console title. The narrative in LCS revolves around Liberty City, the same location from GTA III, so you can visit the same three islands as you could in the PS2 title. And not infinitely-less detailed versions of these islands either. Virtually every alleyway, sidewalk, and structure from GTA3 makes an appearance in the handheld version as well. The only real differences as far as gameplay goes are due to the game's story. The events in LCS actually take place before those in GTA III, so certain structures such as bridges and tunnels are under construction.

Hotter than an Italian Suit
It's been said before, but LCS runs damn well on the PSP. The framerate remains steady throughout most situations, even with scores of civilians roaming the streets. It's not perfect, of course, and it never really exceeds 30 frames per second, but it's still mighty impressive. Occasionally the game pushes so much on the screen at once that slowdown is inevitable, but it's not too bad. Even at its worst, the PSP manages to keep things running well enough to keep you playing relatively unhindered by the burdens of portable technology. As for the load times, well, they're impressive as well. The game only loads on start-up, when loading a save or during cutscenes. Apart from this, there's absolutely no loading when driving around town. Of course, when going from one island to the next there's a five-second pause, but that's very understandable. Battery life is also impressive and clocks in at around four hours.


A Tale of Toni
Most everyone following the development of LCS knows the game stars Toni Cipriani, a hotheaded member of the Leone crime family. The Leones act like the quintessential Italian mafia. Their influence reaches from the lowest street dealer all way up to city hall. At the start of the game Toni has just returned to Liberty City after finishing a job for Don Salvatore, head of the Leone family. Salvatore places Toni under the control of one of his captains, Vincenzo Cilli, who gives Toni his first set of missions. And while the first couple of jobs help orient the player with the city and the game's control scheme, things heat up in LCS rather quickly.
