Grand Theft Auto: Loose ends

Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
2005 | PSP, PS2

This offshoot fleshed out characters like Toni Cipriani, who on the surface appeared to be as one-dimensional as Jean Claude Van Damme’s movie career. In GTA III he’s nothing more than a walking homage to Tony Soprano, juggling his time between running his family restaurant, ordering hits and having control issues with his overbearing mother. But he didn’t fall into favor with the Leone family simply because his name sounded a bit Italian; Liberty City Stories follows Cipriani as he seeks to find favor with the Don, which he achieves by - hold onto something! - shooting up cars and assassinating people.
