Title
It took the best advantage of the DS for gimmickry expected of GTA, tied it all to a pretty neat drug trading system and made everything just compelling enough to distract you from how much simpler the game really is. The story of a belligerent youth being torn between legacy and personal desire does the job, and to be honest, I have no real complaints besides it all feeling just that little bit B-grade.

    Huh, kinda surprised at the rating here. This goes toe to toe with mainline GTA games, I'd argue.

      seriously after being done with iv's campaign (aside from easter egg hunting and collecting rare cars) i just played this instead, man i fucking love the dealer system
    • SMZXW 2021-07-23 08:42:08.707499+00
      which reminds me this game's got very few easter eggs and basically no rare cars to collect so that's a downside

    PSP version is the best version besides touch-orianted mini games

    It'a a bit alarming that they made the drug merching minigame THAT addictive lmao

    Played this to completion on a DS emulator in the past, I should replay this with the PSP version
