The original release of Grand Theft Auto in 1997 sent the media into a frenzy over the nature of this title. Grand Theft Auto’s controversy factor, tagged with a BBFC 18 rating, spelled success. As unintentional as it may seem, GTA was marketed by the media. As they say, any publicity is good publicity. GTA’s success led to the release of GTA London, and finally, GTA 2 on PlayStation.

Respect is everything in this game. You are amongst seven gangs in a brutal power struggle, and your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to work your way to the top of the crime ladder. This can be accomplished by completing tasks and avoiding the police, thus earning respect from your seniors. There are literally hundreds of missions to challenge your crime abilities. Transport within these missions is of vital importance, so vehicles such as corporate Limousines and ice cream trucks have been provided to aid you.

There is little doubt that Grand Theft Auto 2 will receive as much, if not more media attention that its predecessors did. Almost a guaranteed success is on the cards for Take 2 Interactive.
