The Grand Theft Auto 2 wiki last edited by ka_tet19 on 01/29/14 03:03PM View full history

Overview

The top-down view that GTA was once known for.

Grand Theft Auto 2 was the sequel to DMA's " Grand Theft Auto" which was a PC and Playstation title. Grand Theft Auto 2 would have a similar top down style to the original game, but with enhanced game mechanics and graphics. This was the last of the Grand Theft Auto games to use a strict top down camera. The game was first released on the original Playstation in October 22, 1999 and then two days later for PC. Grand Theft Auto 2 was also ported to both Game Boy Color and Dreamcast. There has been some criticisms of all versions that the storyline was lackluster and that the rewards for completing missions was disproportionate to the cost of items in-game.

Multiplayer

The PC version of GTA2 included IP to IP multiplayer. This means that there were no server browsers and that most games were privately hosted in an era when broadband connections still had relatively low market penetration. The multiplayer had severe lag due to this networking model and was called "unusable" by most users. It should be noted that once someone is in Multiplayer, the map is drastically reduced, and most AI features are turned off.

Free release

On December 23rd, 2004, Rockstar announced that it would give away both Grand Theft Auto and Grand Theft Auto 2 as freely downloadable packaged from their website. The core game remains unchanged, but it has been tweaked in order to natively work within Windows XP and Windows Vista. There have been isolated reports that the game intermittently crashes, but many users find it to be fully playable without any issues at all.
