PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Andrew Scott  "This Game Has It All, After A Long Wait I Finally Got My Playstation 2 Just 6 Days Ago. Like Most People Who Get New Playstations, I Took Gta3 And State Of Emergency(which Is Not As Bad As Some People Say It Is) After The First Minute Playing I Was Absolutley Hooked! It Has It All, Guns, Gangs And Violence.this Game Certainly Is Violent, Shoot Someone In The Mouth And Watch As Blood Spurts Out Of It In A Fountain As They Collapse To The Ground, Shoot Them In The Knee And They'll Hop Around Clutching Their Leg With Blood Spurting Out Of It, Now What Sort Of Game Has That Sort Of Unbelievable Fun! It's Great Stress Relief, I Can Clearly See That Rockstar Went To A Lot Of Trouble To Make This Game, Every Little Detail Imaginable(warning: Slight Spoiler Ahead)for Example Is When You Do The Level "dead Skunk In A Trunk" For Joey Were You Have To Take The Dead Body In The Car To The Car Crusher With The Forelli Brothers After You, If They Ram Your Boot Just Hard Enough It Will Fall Off And In Any Other Game It's Just An Ordinary Boot Despite The Fact Theres Supposed To Be A Body In It, But Not In Gta3 You Can See The Dead Body Dressed In A Suit In A "traditional" Death Pose. Also, In The Last Level In Portland With The Car With Brains In It, Go Right Up To The Boot And Use The Sniped Rifle To Aim In And Sure Enough, There Are Brains Scattered Everywhere.this Is One Of The Best Games Ever Made If Not The Best Game Ever, Amazing Lastability, The Best Soundtrack Ever(in The Car There Are 9 Radio Stations, Chatterbox Is Definatley The Best But All The Rest Are Great As Well). Amazing Graphics And... Buy It Buy It Buy Iy Buy It Buy It!"

I'm Trying To Finish Ac3, But I Keep Coming Back To This. It's A Masterpiece. The Complete Freedom You Get In Gta3 Is Amazing. It's Even Fun Just To Watch.

Nathan  "Reasons Why Gta3 Is Sick And Twisted: You Have The Free Run Of An Entire City To Commit Consequence Free Violent Crimes Including Car-jacking, Hit-and-runs, Drive-by Shootings, Assaulting Police Officers And Performing Tasks For The Mafia And The Yakuza. And All That Is, Of Course, Exactly What Makes Grand Theft Auto 3 So Wonderful. Beginning The Game As A Wannabe Criminal On The Dirty Streets Of Liberty City, Gta3 Documents Your Efforts To Become Someone Breaking Every Moral Convention. A Vast Array Of Weapons Including Rocket Launchers And M16s Causes Destruction In Every Way. A Number Of Weird Fictional Vehicles Take Their Position Making Hijacking Comical, Throwing The Owner On The Road If Necessary, Including Fire Engines, Ice Cream Vans And Your Average Ferrari Like Sports-car."

The Way You Can Shoot A Guy In The Head With A Sniper, And See The Blood Come Out, And Even Pulling Them Out Of The Car, The People Say Things.

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Rivaldo16  "Gta3 Is Undoubtly The Best Criminal Simulation That Has Ever Been Created. I Was A Good Fan Of The Driver Series But When The Character Got Out Of His Car The Game Lacked Graphics And Even The Controls Were Slicky.
Surely Gta3 Has Improved This A Lot. You Are Provided With Three Large Ares To Explore And Apart From The 73 Missions Availble There Are Some Awsome Bonus Ones, Like The Stunts And Rampages. One Must Even Remark That The Game Boast Excellent Sounds And Even The Car's Radio Was A Fantastic Idea.
Apart From This The Game Has Some Flaws. One Of This Is The Fact That Missions Are Too Much Repetitive And Sometimes Get Boring. Even The Shoting System Needs Some Improvement."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Lilgoku  "Grand Theft Auto 3 Is Just About The Best Game Yet Released On The System And One Of The Most Impressive Console Titles We've Ever Seen. And I Ain't Blowing Smoke Up Your Tailpipe.

The Game Takes Place In The Wonderfully Corrupt World Of Liberty City, Armpit Of America. You Take On The Role Of A Criminal Who Was Recently Framed By Your Girlfriend During A Bank Heist. Luckily, Your Transportation To Prison Doesn't Go As Smoothly As The Authorities Would Prefer, And You Wind Up Freed From Your Chains With Only 8-ball, A Demolitions Expert, To Give You Some Hope. He Hooks You Up With A Local Mob Bigwig Named Luigi, Giving You A Chance To Make Some Bread, Earn Some Respect, And Eventually Track Down The Bitch Who Turned Traitor In The First Place.

Sound Brutal? You Have No Idea. Grand Theft Auto 3 Is As Mature As A Video Game Comes, Filled With Foul Language, Ruthless Violence And Very Adult Subject Matter. So For The Record, Kids Shouldn't Be Playing This Game. And For Perhaps The First Time Ever, I Sincerely Mean That.

But The Rest Of You Should Be Playing This Game, Because It's Incredibly Fun. Liberty City Is A Technological Marvel, A Living, Breathing Environment That Captures The Essence Of Gritty City Life In Amazing Detail. The Game Is All About Freedom, And I Don't Just Mean That In The First Amendment Sense.

You Can Go Anywhere And Do Anything. Though The Game Comes With A Whopping 73 Missions, You Can Play The Game For Hours Without Ever Attempting One. Instead, You Can Fill Your Time By Carjacking Vehicles And Running Amuck. Hop Into A Cab And You Can Toggle Mini-game Missions Where You Pick Up And Drop Off Passengers In Crazy Taxi Fashion For Money. Nab An Ambulance And Save The Injured For Dough. Grab A Firetruck And Put Out Blazes To Earn Some Quick Cash. Or If You're Ballsy Enough, You Can Even Grab A Cop Car And Run Some Very Hard Vigilante Missions Where You Catch Other Crooks.

The Combination Of On-foot And In-car Action Is Unrivaled - This Is The Game Driver 2 Was Supposed To Be. The Car Physics Change For The Different Vehicles (and There Are Tons Of Cars), But Control Remains Tight And Responsive The Whole Way Through. It's A Seamless Transition From Foot To Car; Simply Stop A Car By Walking In Front Of It And Jack The Poor Sod Driving It.

But Grand Theft Auto 3 Provides You With More Ways To Travel Than Marvin K. Mooney. You Can Hop A Train At The Various Train Stations, At Which Point The Camera Cuts To A Cool Cinematic View Of You Riding Through The Massive City. You Can Eventually Take The Scary Subway As Well, Though You Better Be Packing Heat. Very Nice.

People Complained About The Top-down Cheapo Graphics In Past Grand Theft Auto Games. Well, Rejoice As This Version Is In Full 3d Glory. Played From A Third-person Angle, Things Look Much Better Than The Past, Though Occasional Clipping Errors And Weird Character Models Stand Out From Time To Time. Considering The Enormity Of The Programming, However (there Are Millions Of People In The City, As Well As Tons Of Moving Vehicles), It's Really Not A Big Deal. The Damage Modeling On The Cars Is Great And The Framerate Is Rock Solid. The Game Looks Fine.

It Also Sounds Terrific. Grand Theft Auto 3 Features 9 Preset Radio Stations That You Can Listen To While You Drive. Reggae Fan? Try K-jah. Want Some Local Talk Radio? Try The Chatterbox. In A Mellow Mood? Then Double Clef Fm Is Your Classical Answer. The Variety Is Great, The Quality Is Top-notch And There's Really No Reason Any Other Driving Game Should Ever Not Do This.

Rockstar Went All Out Hiring Superb Voice-talent. The Game Features Stars Like Michael Rappaport, Kyle Maclachlan And Even Joe Pantoliano From The Sopranos. Might Not Be A Real Mafioso, But He Plays One On Tv, Which Is Pretty Cool.

I Can't Stress Enough How Open-ended This Game Feels. While It's Necessary To Carry Out Certain Missions To Keep The Story Moving And To Open Up Two Other Parts Of The Enormous City, It's Really Not At All Required, And You Can Have All Sorts Of Sick Fun Just Wreaking Havoc. You Don't Really Die In Gta 3 - You Simply Respawn At Either The Hospital Or The Police Station (depending On If You Die Or Get Busted) Minus Some Cash. The Game Ends Up Playing Like These Short, Twisted Vignettes, These Mini-stories That Begin When You Respawn And End When You Finally Get Shot By A Gaggle Of Cops In The Middle Of A Massive Firefight.

Speaking Of The Fuzz, They're Very Determined. You Have A Little Arrest Meter That Starts To Go Up As You Break The Law. I Have Yet To Actually See The Thing Get Over 4 (there Are 6 Slots)...and At 4, I Was Being Chased By About 6 Cops And A Helicopter.

There Are A Few Mildly Annoying Issues, Such As A Generally Difficult Aiming Device For Shooting Guns. The Targeting Is A Little Wily And It Makes Running And Gunning A Bit Hard, Which Can Spell Certain Death In The Middle Of A Gunfight. Better Auto-targeting Would Have Done Wonders.

But For The Most Part, This Is About As Cool Of A Game As I've Ever Played And Earns The First Game Revolution Ps2 'a' With Flying Colors. I Could Go On And On Trying To Explain The Plethora Of Intricate Details - The Realistic Gang Rivalries, The Things You Can Do With Prostitutes, The Hysterical 'rampages' That Allow You To Go On Mass Killing Sprees - But I Simply Don't Have The Words Nor The Space To Convey The Fun. Just Go Drop 50 Bucks On This Gem And Cherish Your Inner Criminal."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Adam Bollands  "Gta3 Is An Action Driving Game Along The Lines Of Driver 2 But It Is Also A Third Person Shooter Like Die-hard Or Blade.

During The Introduction You (donald Love) Have Successfully Carried Out A Robbery Only To Find Later That Your Girlfriend Has Left You For Dead And To Take The Blame. You Later Escape From The Back Of A Police Van Then Start To Plot Your Revenge. The Graphics Look A Bit Blurred At The End Of The Intro And When You Go Down The First Hill But Then They Are Clear For The Rest Of The Game.

The Graphics Are Phenomenal And I Donít Think They Can Be Beaten. No Matter How Small The Object Is A Great Amount Of Detail Has Obviously Been Put In To Make It Look As Realistic As It Can, Even The Trees Are 3d Unlike Most Other Games Where They Are Very Flat. The Trains Look Realistic Too So Why Not Jump On And Take A Tour Around Portland Island. There Are Lots Of Different Kinds Of People Wandering Around The Streets From Hoboes To Mafia Guys And Robbers And They All Have Their Own Identity. Buildings Are Other Things That Appear Quiet Often Yet There Are Hardly Two The Same.

The Gameplay Is Just As Outstanding As The Graphics. There Is One City Called Liberty City And It Is In The Usa. This City Consists Of 3 Islands And In Those There Are 9 Different Mafia Families, Which You Will Either Love Or Hate. You Have To Carry Out Missions For Most Of The Mafia Families And Work Your Way Through The Islands But Watch Out For The Mafia Gangs Who Hate You Because They Will Kill At Any Opportunity They Get. There Is No Set Amount Of Lives So When You Die You Will Go Back To The Garage That You Last Saved It At. There Is 1 Garage In Every Island, Which You Are Not Supposed To Store Anymore Than 2 Cars In At 1 Time But If You Put A Car Under The Door You Can Fit Lots More In.

This Is One Of The Best Games I Have Ever Played And I Hope That There Is Many More Grand Theft Autos To Hit The Charts."

Bought A Ps2 The Very Next Week So I Could Play My Very Own Gta3. Only Problem Is No Time To Play With A 2 1/2 Year Old Running Around. (guns & Bang! Bang!) Many Sleepless Nights.

The Best Game I Have Ever Played To This Day!

You Can Either Work To Complete The Missions, Run Around Killing People, Or Just Enjoy Stealing And Driving A Wide Array Of Cars. The Attention To Detail In This Game Is Absolutely Superb. There Is A Wide Variety Of Characters On The Street, Each Have Their Own Personality. I Bet That You Will Not Be Able To Resist Picking Out One Type Of Character As Your Least Favorite And Making A Point Of Killing That Character Every Time You See It (my Most Hated Is The Gay Construction Worker). Beware Though, After Playing This Game It Will Affect Your Real Life Driving. It Sure Has Affected Mine!"

As I Played The Game More And More Progressing Through The Islands I Became More Addicted To It Finding Many Extra Features On Top Of The Standard Missions. This Game Has A Good Lifespan Because Even After Completing It You'll Come Back For More. Little Touches Such As The Brilliant Chatterbox Radio Station Make This The Best Game Of All Time."

For Example U Can Kill People, Steal Cars, Run From The Law, Or Do Missions For Other People And Get Paid. But There Is One ?uestion Does Any Body Know If There Is Going To Be A Grand Theft Auto 4 (gta 4)."

King Courtney  "This Game Is The God Of All Games, I Understand How People Say: But It's Only Three Levels I Can Finish It In A Day. So I Ask All Of Them If They've Played It And They Said No. See If They Had Played It They Would Realize The 74 Missions To Complete And How Much Fun And Detailed Each And Every One Is. I See How All The Other Commentators Are Writing Full Paragraphs About How Good This Game Is When As I Look At This Game I Can Describe It In One Sentance.this Game Is The God Of All Games. -king Courtney"

Joseph Balderas  "The Game Is Unmatched As Far As Contemporary Ingenuity Goes For A Ps2 Game. I Have To Say I Have Never Been Addicted To A Game Like I Have With Gta 3, It Is Really That Amazing. I Find Myself Thinking Of New Scenarios To Act Out In The Game When I Am Not Playing The Game. I Also Like How There Is An Underground Core Of Gamers That Are Very Excited About The Games Innovative Touch To An Actual 3-d World."

Eric Lane  "Rockstar Has Come Up To The Plate Swinging With This Amazing Game. Not Only Is The Game Amazingly Deep, But It Retains It's Lastability Factor With A Myriad Of Missions. Gta 3 Is The Most Enjoyable Game That I Have Played In Over 10 Years. I Cannot Get Enough Of This Game. I Rented It For Over A Week, And Then Bought It. I Even Find Myself Going Home At Lunch To Play For A Half Hour. If You Have A Social Life, Do Not Get This Game. My Girlfriend Still Wont Talk To Me. Gta 3 Rules!"

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Richard Kershaw (rickersh)  "What Can I Say? I've Only Had My Ps2 Since September And The Best Game I've By Far Is Grand Theft Auto 3.

This Game Was Highley Anticipated When I First Saw Screenshots At The Start Of The Year And Then I Was All Over The Internet Looking For News On The Game.

The Game Hasen't Left The Console Since I Bought It. Some Friends Of Mine Are Going To Buy A Ps2 Just Get This Game.

The Gameplay Is Best In A Game I've. Where Else Are You Gonna Bash A Cop With A Baseball Bat And Not Get Thrown In The Big House. The Graphics Are Great, You Can See Locations From Far Off And Not Popping Up With 6 Feet Of The Object. Great Sound, Chatterbox Fm Is A Riot. Buy This Game If You Love Both Driver And The First Two Gta Games.
It'll Be A Miracle I Garaant It. "

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Nick Rees  "A Masterpiece. The Ability To Basically Travel Where You Want, Do What You Want Promotes The Ps2 To New Heights. What I Find Excellent, Is The Differences In The Vehicles And The Pure Depth Of This Game. I Have Spent 4 Solid Days On This And Yet Only Completed 11 Percent Of It And I Wonder What Else There Is I Have To Do! Obviously Loads!
There Are Very Few Flaws In The Game And If I Am Going To Nitpick Then It Would Be On The Targetting When Involved In A Street Fight With Rival Gangs. It Can Be A Bit Tricky At Times. Also It Would Be A Good Touch If The Central Character Could Swim. But Hey Beggars Cant Be Choosers And I Am Glad I Have Been Blessed With This Game. "

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Badboy 3223  "Man This Is The Game To Get! I Love This Game Because There Is A Unlimited Things To Do In It. There Are So Many Hidden Things Also, Witch Makes It Even More Fun. Every Time I Play It I Figure Out Something New! Im Not Going To Tell You All The Secrets You Can Do In This Game, Youll Just Have To Figure It Out For Your Self. But With 80 Missions I Am Possitive You Will Not Beat This Game On A Weekend. Also The Radio In This Game Is Great! There Are So Many Diffrenet Cars To Steal Also.

The Cops In The Game Are Preety Stupid But It Makes It More Fun! The Gang Members Intelligence Is Alot Better Making it More Challenging Against Them.

The Gun Targeting For Some Weapons Is Pretty Weak But None The Less You Get Used To It In Like 10min.

Well I Love This Game! To Anyone Looking To Buy A New Game This Month I Suggest Grand Theft Auto 3. You Will Love It!

(rated: M For Mature) And When I Say That I Mean It!"

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Gamepro  "Right Here's The Deal. When I Was A Kid Playin' My Delightful Version Of Grand Theft Auto I Was Thinkin' To Myself Damn I Wish This Game Was 3d. Now My Dreams Have Been Answered.

This Game Is Amazing. Probably Not A Parents Favorite But Amazing None The Less. It Starts In A City With Violence, Cops, Gangs, Hookers, And Other Various Fortitudes That Teenagers Love. Then, It Moves On To A Bigger City Then To The Suburbs. It's A Long Game And Hard To Beat So You Don't Really Get Bored With It Until Like The Last Couple Missions. Plus, You Don't Even Have To Do The Missions You Could Sit Around And Just Mess With People And Have All The Fun In The World. I Do Agree That The Controls Could Be Better With The Gun And Stuff But Other Than That This Game Is Golden.

The Sound Track Has Some Of My Favorite Artists On It Like Royce Da 5'9", Black Rob, And Guru. It Is Also Hilarious Just Listen To Chatterbox And Try Not To Laugh. This Will Definately Be A Classic On My Shelf For Many Years To Come."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Richard Atkins  "This Is Everything That Gta2 Should Have Been. Better Plot, Supurb (technically At Least, Altough Not To Everyones Taste) Graphics And Ai That Will Keep You At This Game For Longer Than Most And An Awesome Soundtrack, This Is An All Round Excellent Game And Will Appeal To Gamers With A Variety Of Tastes.

There Are Areas For Improvement However. The Contol System, On The Whole, Is Intuitive And Fairly Easy To Get To Grips With. In The Car. Step Outside And Get Involved In A Widescale Shootout, And Things Start Getting A Little Cumbersome. I Have Died A Few Times When The R1 Targeting System/camera Angle Has Let Me Down, Which Can Be Pretty Irritating. Also, Whilst The Radio Staions Are Amusing And Of A High Quality, The Adverts Do Begin To Grate After The Tenth Listen.

On The Whole, Despite These Niggles, This Is An Excellent Game And For Once Even Voice Acting Is Actually Very Good, If A Little Cliched. I Would Personally Recommend This Game To Anybody."

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
The Derek  "Holy Crapola Batman! This Game Is Amazing! The Graphics Are Not Only Visually Stunning, But The Environment Is Completely Interactive. And I'm Not Talking About Parts Of It.. Iím Talking About The Whole Bag. Anything You Come Across, (and There's So Many Little Hidden Goodies), Is Available For You To Play With, Steal, Beat Up, Murder, Or Destroy!

The Step Up From Gta1 And 2 Is Enough To Throw You For A Loop. A Game Like This Was Never Thought Possible On Psone. Imagine How Much More Fun The Twisted Metal Series Would Have Been If It Was Anything Close To This!

The Graphics Are Great And The Playability Is Wonderful. You Get Easy Controls, Easy For A Novice To Figure Out And Get Comfortable With Right Away. The Best Part Is The Diversity In The Automobiles. Every Car You Steal Handles Differently, Has Different Acceleration And Stopping Rates, And Accrues Damage Differently.

This Is By Far And Away The Best Game I Own For Ps2 And Probably The Best One Out There For Now. The Violence And Numerous Missions (tons Of Side Missions), Make This Game One That You Won't Get Bored Of Quickly. This Will Definitely Stay In Your Favorites Stack For A Long Time And Is A Recommended Buy! Renting A Copy Will Only Make You Want To Own It That Much More!"

PS2 Review SUMMARY and SCORE
Marcus Black  "Once In A Blue Moon A Game Comes Out That Absolutely Blows Your Mind. With So Much Hype Attached To Games That Are On The Horizon It Is Almost A Sure Bet That They Will Fall Greatly Short Of What Has Been Promised. It Is In Rare Cases That A Game Can Live Up To All That It Is Said To Be. Grand Theft Auto Iii Is That Rare Game.

This Was A Game That I Honestly Had No Interest In. Having Played A Little Of Both The First Installment And The Second One This Just Did Not Seem Like A Game That I Would "connect" With. I Am Employed At A Place Called Game Trader And As The Name Implies We Sell New And Used Video Games. On The Day That Gta 3 Was Released Another Employee Became Our First Customer To Purchase The Game. After Watching Him Play This Game For No More Than 10 Minutes I Became The Second Customer. This Game Is Unlike Any Other That I Have Ever Played. I Have Never Been As Involved With A Game As I Am With This One. This Game Has Everything Going For It.

The Sounds,enviorments,graphics And Most Importantly The Gameplay Are All There. Rockstar Games Has Come Up With What I Think Is One Of The Most Inovative Games In The History Of Gaming. It Expands Almost Everything Of What Gaming Has Been And Paves The Way For The Future Of Gaming. Weather A Company Makes Racing Games Or Platform Games There Is Something For All Of Them To Learn From The Good People Of Rockstar. I Will Leave The Details Of The Game To Other Reviewers And Just Close With Saying That If You Are Looking For A Great Game To Play Give Gta 3 A Shot!"
