    Eigentlich hätte es ja der letzte Job sein sollen, den Sie und Vinnie für die Mafia erledigen sollten. Danach würden Sie beide genügend Geld haben, um endlich aus diesem Teufelskreis – und damit auch aus Liberty City – zu entkommen. Doch dann geht Vinnies Fluchtwagen in einem Feuerball auf, zusammen mit der ganzen Kohle. Plötzlich macht jeder Polizist der Stadt Jagd auf Sie. Sie müssen um jeden Preis aus Liberty City entkommen, aber nicht, ohne vorher Vinnies Mörder zu finden und den Spieß für die Leute umzudrehen, die es auf Sie abgesehen haben.

    Diesen Herbst wird die Serie, die die Konsolenwelt im Sturm erobert hat, erneut Geschichte schreiben – für Handhelds. Die Freiheit und das nahezu endlose Gameplay, für die Grand Theft Auto steht, gibt es demnächst auch für Game Boy Advance.

    Pressestimmen:

    "Durch eine riesige Stadt zu düsen und mörderische Aufträge zu erledigen, macht auch auf dem kleinen GBA richtig Laune. (...) Untermalt wird die Verbrechersimulation im Taschenformat von cooler Funk- und Rock-Mucke, wobei das kleine Modul sogar mit einer Sprachausgabe überrascht."

    Wanna be a gangster? Start on the streets of Liberty City.

    The godfather of nonlinear games makes a splash on the Game Boy Advance.

    Features

    • More than 300 missions
    • Original storyline
    • All the elements from the GTA series
    • Three save slots


    Liberty City might be a nice place to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there. That's the mantra of Mike, a mob flunky trying to get out of Liberty City and leave his skull-cracking past behind him. However, greed keeps Mike and his pal, Vinnie, working for the underworld.

    Vinnie, however, isn't long for Liberty City, or the rest of the world for that matter. Mike gets framed for his murder and sets to find out who framed him and murdered Vinnie. You'll need to complete your dirty deeds, avoid the fuzz and discover who killed Vinnie if you want to find a way out of Liberty City and the life of crime.

    In classic GTA style, Mike muscles his way through the mean streets of Liberty City by carjacking sweet rides, avoiding the cops and running over pedestrians who get in his way. Too many bad deeds will up his most-wanted rating and make him a man on the lam.

    Grand Theft Auto Advance crams a lot of information onto the Game Boy Advance's screen. Along with the overhead view of the game, a radar and map of where you're headed occupies the top left corner. Mike's stats display in the top right, including ammunition remaining, health, money and most-wanted stars. The bottom right corner tells you what part of the city you're in.

    Despite all this information sharing the screen, Grand Theft Auto Advance isn't a difficult game to learn to play. Mastering the controls is easy, but that's not to say the game is easy or quick to finish. Grand Theft Auto Advance features more than 300 missions, including vigilante and fire-and-rescue missions.

    Bottom Line

    One of the few M-rated games for the Game Boy Advance, Grand Theft Auto Advance shines with its open-ended gameplay.
