GameBoy Color : Grand Theft Auto Details
Somehow, Take Two Interactive managed to squeeze the controversial Grand Theft Auto into the tiny confines of a Game Boy cartridge. Unfortunately, most of the elements that made this game fun on other systems were lost in the translation.
The basic premise remains intact: you play the role of a hoodlum trying to work your way up the ladder of crime. This is accomplished by committing hundreds of unsavory acts, from simple carjacking to complex missions assigned by the city's crime lords. Eventually the cops become wise to your evil deeds and hunt you down, which adds an extra layer to the gameplay.
The problems with this conversion are numerous. City streets that should be teeming with traffic are mostly bare. It's difficult even to find a car to steal, and actually driving the ungainly beasts is even harder due to poor turning-radiuses and a terrible control scheme. Die-hard fans of the original might like this, but everyone else should opt for the superior PlayStation or PC versions. --T. Byrl Baker
