Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories - Multiplayer

For the first time in GTA history, an official, multiplayer mode will be bundled with the game. Although it is only in Ad-Hoc mode (local), this new step for Rockstar will greatly make use of the PSP's capabilities, setting it apart from the rest of the handheld competition. Multiplay will allow up to six players, and it will contain seven different modes.

When you first begin playing, there will be a total of nine characters to play as - "mobsters, hookers and a friendly-looking old lady." As you progress in single player mode, you will be able to unlock new characters - " there are over 60 in all, and you can earn new outfits for them too, but they all have the same abilities." Also, when you first being playing, only Portland will be available for your multiplay disposal, but unlocking the islands in single player also unlocks the maps in multiplayer, so at least you have some motivation!

The map in multiplayer mode will sport some icons of various boosts, powerups, and other goodies scattered across Liberty City. Read below for more detailed descriptions of the mode.

Liberty City Survivor

This mode is basically like "Slayer" of Halo. Every man for himself tries to kill off the opposition. The first player to reach the Kill Limit or have the most kills when the Time Limit has been reached wins the game. Just as Halo, killing an enemy earns you a point while committing suicide takes one point from your own score. This mode also allows for teams. You can team up with a couple of partners and create your own miniature gangs against each other. As the free for all mode, any team that reaches the Kill Limit or have the most kills when the Time Limit has been reached wins the game.

Protection Racket

The goal of this mode is to destroy four limos at the opposing gang's base or defend the four limos at your own base from the opposition. The game is played in two rounds. Each gang will automatically be assigned in the Defending or Attacking roles. A timer displayed onscreen will measure the time it takes for the Attacking gang to destroy the limos in the first round. Once all four limos in the Defenders' base have been destroyed, the roles of the Attacking and Defending gang will switch and the second round will begin. The time it took for the limos to be destroyed the first round will now be displayed onscreen and will be counting down. The new Attacking gang must now destroy the limos within this time limit or the other gang will win the game.

Get Stretch

Rather than Capture the Flag, this multiplayer mode is more like Capture the Limo! Each gang must steal their opposing gang's car and return it to their own base while protecting their own gang car from being stolen. You can return your own gang car by driving it back to base or by destroying it. Your gang car will automatically be returned to your base after a short period of time if it is unattended by the opposing gang. You must have both gang cars on your base to enable a successful capture. The first gang to reach the Score Limit or make the most captures within the Time Limit wins the game.

The Hit List

Kill the Marked player as quickly as possible. Survive as long as possible when you are the Mark. In the first round, one player will be chosen randomly as the Mark, all other players must try to kill the Marked player as quickly as possible. Once a Marked player has been killed, a different player will be randomly chosen to be the Mark. Making a successful kill on a Marked player will award you with extra time that is added to your survival time at the end of the game. Once all players have been Marked and killed, the player with the longest survival time wins. The Marked player's vehicle will take damage over time.

Street Rage

Players must drive through the checkpoints to get to the finish line first. Players are allowed to change vehicles and shoot other players to win the race. Players will be automatically re-spawned in a vehicle on the track after a short period of time if they do not have a vehicle or if they have been killed. The player that finishes the race first wins. Sticky Tires - Improves vehicle handling for limited time. Instant Repair - Instantly repairs vehicle.

The Wedding List

This is a free-for-all game where players must collect cars scattered throughout the city and deliver them to shipping crates. Only players in the vehicles to be collected will know the destinations of the shipping crates. Cash is awarded based on the condition of the cars when they are delivered. Once all the cars have been collected and delivered, the player with the most cash wins this game mode.

Tanks for the Memories

Be the first to the tank and try to survive the target Tank Time. Other players must try to destroy your tank before the Tank Time is reached. If this happens the player who caused the most damage to the tank will now occupy the new tank and you must destroy it as quickly as possible. First player that hits the Tank Time wins!
