Review by Brian L.
"Fun for all ages above 14."
Grand Theft Auto 2, which will be called GTA2 from here on in, is a game based on you committing illegal activities for other people. You steal cars, run people over, shoot people, avoid the police, blow up buildings, blow up cars, and do many other things that will sufficiently annoy the cops. Sounds fun, doesn't it?
Although there are many plus sides such as those things which are just plain fun, there are some bad things about the game. First of all, the control is absolutely terrible. Why can't you just push the arrow button in one direction, and go that way? Also, there should be some sort of music when you're just walking around outside of your car. Instead, there's just silence, which gets annoying.
Other than those things though, GTA2 is a somewhat unique game. Listening to the radio in the car will often crack you up, and some of the missions you get are pretty funny. For example, you are asked to blow up taxis for a gang leader because none of the them will give him a ride. In another one, you bomb a pizza company because they keep messing up the guy's orders. With a unique brand of humor and excellent gameplay, GTA2 is an excellent buy for anyone who's old enough to handle the violence.
