Reviews from

in the past

it's got soul and it's pretty nostalgic since i used to run around doing missions a lot on ps2 and pc, but it's not really worth your time unless you want a time killer or you played it as a kid

Fucking iconic. Spent too many hours on this and honestly its still charming to this day. Saving system was a bitch though you need $50k to fucking SAVE the game lol

um jogo bom
mas limitado pela camera de cima
Historia chula
mas é bem divertido

Rockstar went from having a dedicated fart button to having horse testicle physics. A logical progression if there ever was one.

I liked playing this game and doing missions in it, it's got soul. I couldn't memorize the city layout and kept getting lost.

has a soul at least but the review here is the same as og gta

Remember downloading this and the first one as abandonware on my school laptop in middle school. There are so few games in this style, where you get to just run around a whole city in topdown 2d graphics. I love that about these early GTA games.

I bought this as a kid thinking it was GTA San Andreas. I played quite a bit, especially the first city.
I think that to advance to the next city there was a shortcut where you could just find a tank and blow things up?
I think every man that wore a red shirt was a thief? Interesting choice.

very fun and simple. main objective is just collect money to advance to next level

This game has a dedicated key to fart and burp.
I just liked to grab the tank and blow up cop cars for hours.

A huge improvement over the first game. It solves so many of its issues, from fixing things like bugs, frame rate issues and adding quality of life changes.
The lack of a map is still a bit of a problem, but this time around the locations seem more forgiving as far as dead-ends and the like go. At least until the third map, that thing had so many boxed off areas, that you'd take ages finding a gap to get in, and then once you've navigated around the labyrinth inside, you gotta find your way back out. The sheer amount of these often means you'll be driving along a few miles across a fence while you look for a bit of access to keep following the arrow.
Gun combat was improved significantly. No longer did my bullets seem to just pass through the heads of NPCs, everything felt very on-target and much better overall to play, meaning the more combat-based missions in this game weren't a problem.
I did like the inclusion of each stage having 3 gangs that you can build up loyalty to, to unlock harder missions for that gang, or piss off one of them so that not only are you locked out of their missions, but they'll attack you on the street, with increasingly dangerous weapons. It really adds something to the player experience as you choose a group to partner with and an area of the map belonging to their rival gang becomes dangerous.
Although the missions themselves all seemed pretty similar regardless of the gang you chose, it does help add a bit of personality to them, instead of just being random phone calls as they were in the first game. Each gang even gives you their own nickname.
The game was a lot shorter this time around however. While it still has 3 maps, you only play each one once, as opposed to twice like the original game. In this game you only need a total of 8 million points to beat the game, while in GTA 1 you needed, I think, 15 million.
Getting points also feels a lot easier now for one reason: The tank. I easily racked up millions of points at a time when I got into a tank. I'm not saying this is a problem with the game, as its completely option if you wanna cheese it this way, but it's a thing in the game, and one that I used and found myself shocked by just how buffed it was.
However all that's not to say this game has less replay-ability though. While the minimum amount needed to beat the game is less (which admittedly, is all I did), I'm pretty sure there are more missions and kill frenzies per stage, so if you wanted to 100% it, it'd probably even out.
They also added bonus stages, I only tried out a couple of them - I was only in this to get a good feel of GTA's history, don't judge me - they were essentially just standalone missions you could do for fun.
So basically this is just taking the first game, fixing most of its issues, and adding a bunch of little extras. The only problem I have with this version is the lack of a map still, and the third map (which I guess is 1/3rd of the game, or technically more since it's the level that needs the most points, but still)

Küçükken ne olduğunu anlamamıştım. PS1'de oynardım BTW.

this game is doo doo.
but it's one of the first games i ever played so it has that special vibe fr hope it gets a remaster one day but rockstar is too busy toning down the series now that sam houser left

Melhor que o primeiro e o mais estranho da série devido ao seu estilo retrofuturista, ainda assim tem elementos imperdoáveis como vidas e pouca energia, espero que um dia retomem esse ambiente em um jogo futuro.

I mean, it was alright. I played it when I was much younger, still remember the sounds and the weird sounds of the phone calls. A decent classic in the GTA series.



Spaßig, brutal, aber auch komplett hirnlos. Nett als Stück der Videospielgeschichte, aber deutlich schwächer als die folgenden Teile.

Thank god for actual health and 10 armor.

Fun game, with top down action.

Soul making
Sound shaking
Earth quaking

Top down isometric wasn't the most fun thing ever but it got the job done back inthe day.
