    This game is frustrating and repetetive.

    Grand theft auto. it has gone so far from this game, this is probably the worst one apart from the first and maybe also because all the others are so much better. this game is just so boring. You pick a character and ... Read Full Review

    It takes the structure of the first games and greatly improves upon it.

    I know I'm biased to say I like this game, because objectively, it doesn't do anything new compared to the original (other than the somewhat weak incorporation of respect and gangs). However, the first game had a lot of... Read Full Review

    Good, but it's no Vice City or San Andreas

    Granted, this game came out a LOOOONG time ago. But the overlying flaw is the gameplay. In Vice City, there are many many many places to find "jobs" to do for various gang lords in the city. In GTA2, however, t... Read Full Review

    GTA II Coasts on the Success of Predecessor

    If you played the original Grand Theft Auto, prepare to be surprised by the lack of surprises in its sequel. Grand Theft Auto II (GTA II) looks and plays identical to its predecessor. In the original, you take phone c... Read Full Review

    This game was the precursor to what we love about GTA to this day. It's a shame hardly anyone remembers it.

    Alright, let me start by saying that Grand Theft Auto games are normally best played from a 3-D perspective. However, GTA2 is indeed the exception to the rule. Set in an all-too-real near future, GTA2 has all the stuff y... Read Full Review

    So everyone had that one game they cant put down, this was mine.

    Why so underrated? Far better than the 1st installment.

    The big difference from the first GTA is that you're doing jobs for different gangs. The graphics and gameplay also got powerful revamp. When you've completed this game once and learn all the fun tricks, you'll enjoy th... Read Full Review
