Grand Theft Auto (GTA) Liberty City Stories is one of the franchise's most underappreciated titles. Unlike other mainstream GTA games, it was initially released for the PlayStation Portable before being ported to the PlayStation 2 and 3, iOS, and Android devices.

When it comes to storytelling in GTA games, Rockstar Games never fails to impress fans. The developers have expertly crafted a number of games that explain the game's lore, whether through a contemporary narrative, a prequel, or a sequel.

Liberty City Stories is a work of art that tells fans more about Liberty City's lore. With so many other games and platforms available right now, it's understandable to be unsure about investing time in the game. This article will explain why fans should play the game on Android devices.

Complete information on GTA Liberty City Stories - Characters, plots, gameplay, and more


Liberty City Stories is a prequel to the events of Grand Theft Auto 3 and Advance and a sequel to GTA San Andreas. As the title suggests, the story takes place in Liberty City. The game depicts Toni Cipriani as the protagonist and his story of how he tries to restore balance in the underworld prevailing in the city.

The underworld is reigned by mafia families who control the city through corrupt politicians and authorities. Toni Cipriani is also a member of the mafia called the Leone Family, which Salvatore Leone rules.


The plot is set in 1998, three years before GTA 3. Rockstar pays close attention to detail, which is also reflected in the game. Although the general layout of the map is the same as in other Liberty City-based games, as a prequel, it provides an early glimpse of several iconic locations in the city.

Fort Staunton, Porter Tunnel, Callahan Bridge, Tw@ Internet Cafe, and many other structures are shown under construction in the game. This gives players a genuine feeling that the game was a precursor to other events in the city.


The game features many important characters from other games. Toni Cipriani is also a significant character in GTA 3, which perfectly connects both games.
