In Liberty City, a FictionalCounterpart to New York, you play a [[SilentProtagonist silent]], [[NoNameGiven nameless]] [[note]]later games reveal his name to be Claude[[/note]] protagonist who escapes from a prison transport and climbs the city's criminal ladder. You are hoping to get revenge your ex-girlfriend/partner in crime Catalina, who left you for dead after a bank robbery gone bad. It won't be an easy journey. Some will backstab you, and others will think you are in the way. But if you fight the good fight, this will be one hell of a ride.

Released on UsefulNotes/PlayStation2, then on the UsefulNotes/XBox and PC, and eventually got released on iOS and Android for its 10th Anniversary in 2011. This game was the first of the series to actually feature a full-fledged 3D graphics engine that took advantage of the state-of-the-art hardware of its time to render an entire city, thus creating one of the first incarnations of the WideOpenSandbox genre as we know it.
