Storyline

A sequel to Grand Theft Auto (1997), this game once again puts the player in the role of an aspiring thug hoping to climb to the top of the criminal world by completing missions and terrorizing the citizenry. In this version, however, each city has been divided by rival gangs that will gain or lose respect for you based on your actions. The police have also beefed up their forces, and will call out the SWAT teams or even the National Guard should the regular beat cops prove insufficient.

GTA2 is fun, but full of enhancements to the original game.
31 August 2001 | by Michael_PilkingtonSee all my reviews

So-called sequel to "Grand Theft Auto" is fun, but this game is full of enhancements to the original game and that is not necessarily good. There are more missions, more gangs, more weapons, and more cops. The soundtrack is sillier than ever. The Atari 2600-like graphics are only a slight improvement, if not better. The foul language has been toned down a little. Like the previous game, the camera angle looks straight down on the action. The only good thing about this game is that you get complete freedom to do what you want when you want to. As a criminal, you can manipulate gangs by turning them against one another, work for any gang that you feel like working for (as long as you have enough respect that one gang), steal fancy cars and go on a killing spree using heavy artillery. If you love the first game then give "GTA2" a shot but don't expect to see much improvement. My evaluation: 6 out of 10.
