I'm planning on picking up a PSP sometime soon, and when I do I'd like to get one of the GTA games. I've checked reviews and for the most part these two GTA games on the PSP are about equally-well-reviewed. So I'm curious: which game do you all think is better? Thanks

I'm actually 24% into GTA:LCS and so far, no control of gangs or something yet. I've played Vice City before. I tell you, Vice City Stories is better than GTA:LCS.

Gah...indecision! How about this, then: what are the significant differences between these two games? Or are there really any?...

significant differences are: VCS has more minigames, and more vehicle types to control, including helos, speedboats, quads, bikes, etc. And you can swim. I thought the graphics were slightly better too.

Vice City Stories is better. It has a more involved storyline, better gameplay mechanics, and a much better sound track.

Yeah, you gotta love the soundtrack. Love Fist, anyone? And it's Tommy Vercetti, man.

I miss VCPR. Lol.

Liberty Cities for sho, the missions were much better and sure it doesnt have as much things as VCS such as jetski or whatever but its still more fun.

You cant go wrong with either game, but IMO Vice City was more fun in the fact that you could swim, fly airplanes and helicopters and dont forget the Phil Collins concert!

Liberty City was my first and favorite game on the PSP. The missions rock, the story is awesome, and I love running around the city (which is in both, but LCS i like more)

The missions in Vice city stories are better and the free-roam is better for a short period of time, but gets repetitive and bland in VCS.

The missions are mostly boring in LCS but some are extremely fun. The free-roam lasts alot longer that in VCS, but doesnt have as much mini-games or fun things to do in VCS.

I'd put it this way seeing as they are so evenly matched.. which would you like to explore more, New York or miami? a City setting or a Tropic setting?

P.S. they both own

I would get them both, but if you gotta choose one, I would say Vice City Stories. A lot of extras like owning businesses and attacking enemy businesses.
