What is GTA: Liberty City Stories?

GTA: Liberty City Stories, originally a console game, is a reworked version, made specifically for mobile platforms and is currently only available for Android devices.


Players partake in shorter missions, as Toni Cipriani (a main character in the GTA franchise) returns to Liberty City, after being in hiding for killing a man. Cipriani rejoins the Leone family, in a war to rule the streets of Liberty City. According to the developer:

Now, the streets of Liberty City are in turmoil, as warring families vie for control and the town begins to self-destruct under waves of political corruption, organized crime, drug trafficking and union strikes. Deranged hit men, morally depraved tycoons, cynical politicians and even his own mother stand in the way as Toni tries to bring the city under Leone family control.

The storyline and soap opera feel of GTA: Liberty City Stories comes by way of cutscenes, which are short animated clips that both provide background for the game’s storyline, as well as function to move the game forward.


As players successfully complete each mission, they’re paid, with their cash total serving as points as they progress through the game. Money can be used to purchase items, such as guns and other weapons, needed to complete missions as players progress through the game.


Interesting to note is the disclaimer the developers post in the Google Play store regarding GTA: Liberty City Stories: “Take Two doesn’t endorse or encourage engaging in any conduct depicted in game.”

Is GTA: Liberty City Stories safe for my kids?

With a mature rating, parents should be aware that GTA: Liberty City Stories is not safe for kids to play.

Part of the Grand Theft Auto family of games, parents should know that gang violence, graphic violence, profane language, illegal drugs, sexual content, blood and gore feature heavily here, not to mention that the game centers around illegal activities.

Parents unfamiliar with the Grand Theft Auto series of games should know that each game is like a soap opera, or crime movie, in which players participate.

Parents can expect the soap opera-like cutscenes to contain strong language, references to violence, and even sexual content and innuendo. Gang rivalry, the Mafia and corruption make up the seedy underbelly that is the backbone of Liberty City, where car theft (owing to the game’s name) is a tame offense, compared to the other action within the game.

Also important to note is that those parents allowing older children to play GTA: Liberty City Stories should make sure that the game is not played around smaller children, not only because of the sheer amount of violence involved, or the strip clubs and prostitutes featured, but also because of the vulgar language laced with profanities.

Parents should also be aware that GTA: Liberty City Stories permission requirements allows the app to read the contents of users’ USB storage, in addition to being able to modify or delete the contents of users’ USB storage.
