While you need not have ever played Grand Theft Auto IV before this to enjoy the fun, familiar users will no doubt enjoy the many tie-ins with the previous game (e.g. Luis, as it turns out, was one of the hostages during Nico’s hold-up of the Bank Of Liberty; the missing diamonds from one of Nico’s missions finally turn up; etc.). Both game’s main individuals take a bit of a backseat to their respective stories and (often outrageous) supporting characters, but there’s still a whole lot to do and explore in Liberty City.
The bottom line: Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City may have been a longtime coming to PS3 players, but it’s well worth the wait.
Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City is rated M (Mature) by the ESRB for Blood, Intense Violence, Nudity, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Use of Drugs and Alcohol. This game can also be found on: PC and Xbox 360.
