Mayhem in the big city!
The best part of this game had to have been the free-form helter-skelter. How could someone not find the random violence entertaining? Unlike the later GTA games, this one actually included multiplayer so you could cause havoc and kill your best friends at the same time!
There were two downsides to this game, one made the other worse. The biggest problem was shooting those guns. You had one option...a straight line...if you didn't hit, you were screwed when the cops busted you. The second problem which wasn't helped by the first was that the missions became really long and drawn out without the ability to save the game. You had to aquire up to 5 million points without dying or even failing missions because then you lose potential multiplier. These factors could have been touched up for a more enjoyable game
The Bottom Line
You absolutely have to try this game at least once in your life to understand where the gaming industry went! Violence Violence Violence! Not too shabby!
