Added DiffLines:

* TheCartel: The Colombian Cartel makes an appearance here, doing business with the Leones.


Added DiffLines:

** Donald Love is a lot more depraved here. His taste for human flesh was hinted at before, but here we actually ''see'' what he's eating.


Added DiffLines:

* HowTheMightyHaveFallen: Donald Love wastes his massive fortune on the mayoral campaign, which ends up backfiring on him. When we meet him again he is sleeping in a bug-infested flophouse.
** The Forellis have gone from the most powerful mafia family in Liberty City to minor crooks, especially after the destruction of Fort Staunton, the only neighborhood still owned by the family.
** The Sindacco Family is about as big as the Leone family at the start of the game, despite the death of Johnny Sindacco in ''San Andreas'', and they, together with the Forellis almost took over Liberty City. By the end of the game, Paulie Sindacco is dead, the gang has lost all their influence, and Sindacco gang members don't even spawn anymore.

Added DiffLines:

* FatBastard: J.D O'Toole.


Added DiffLines:

** Salvatore is a lot more paranoid here, to the point of waving a gun in Toni's face which can probably ascribed to Carl Johnson's betrayal years prior and the intense gang war in the city.


Added DiffLines:

* NoodleIncident: Apparently the FBI searched J.D's hard drive for [[Squick something]]...


Added DiffLines:

* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Toni and Toshiko uses the Forelli family's views regarding mixed-race interactions to stage an ambush.
** The primary reason J.D defected to the Leones was the Sindacco family's refusal to have him made due to his mixed Irish-Italian heritage.


Added DiffLines:

** Miles O'Donovan, the new mayor is a puppet of the Forellis and is apparently no stranger to scandals.


Added DiffLines:

* WhyDontYouJustShootHim: The game provides you with a katana during the final duel with Kazuki, but you can use the quicker and more effective method of just shooting him and the mooks.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Luigi Goterelli, the Leone pimp is nowhere to be seen this time around.
** Salvatore's son Joey is barely mentioned, although it appears that he already owns the auto shop.

The first of the two [[GaidenGame "Stories" games]] in the ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' series, which were both made for the PlayStationPortable and later ported to PlayStation2. The story takes place in 1998, a few years before the events of ''III'', and follows a younger, slimmer Toni Cipriani's rise to power in the Leone crime family. And it's not easy. Things get messy, with uncooperative mayors and families from the Old Country wanting in on the action.

* AllThereInTheManual: To explain why there are no motorbikes in ''III'' while there are here, the manual explains that a pressure group is making up some statistics to ban bikes - and they're funded by a car company.

the game progress.
** Toni himself is this in "Dead Meat". Literally, with a meat axe.



* DarkerAndEdgier: Somewhat. Mainly [[VideogameCrueltyPotential because the level of cruelty in the game is quite high]], even more than its predecessor. Several missions includes doing atrocious acts: bomb the area of a city (Fort Staunton), shoot up a university full of student activists(!), stealing corpses for Donald to munch on, dismember a man with an ax and then carrying his remains to a butchery, etc.

* EvilVersusEvil: In case you have doubts, ALL the characters (protagonists, antagonists or minors) are villains, [[JerkAss jerks]] or [[TheSociopath sociopaths]], all. Toni is a ruthless and somewhat insane mobster who does not hesitate to commit atrocities for their own benefit or to satisfy their bosses, Salvatore is extremely vindictive and shows traits of paranoia and narcissism, and Donald is cannibal and corrupt.

* RecycledInSpace: The mission "Karmageddon" (the one given by [[spoiler:Ned Burner]], not the side-mission you can do after that) is similar with ''Vice City'''s "Messing with the Man", except WITH FIRETRUCK! Yeah, your main objective is to cause mayhem around the city and fulfill the "rating" meter by committing as many crimes as possible while you're driving the firetruck like crazy to pass the mission. Both are also done for petty reasons: while "Messing with the Man" is done ForTheEvulz, "Karmageddon" is done for GoingForTheBigScoop.

* TheReasonYouSuchSpeech: The mission "Hot Wheels" has Toni, having just evaded a police trap that Vincenzo ''conveniently'' forgot to tell him about, hit Vincenzo with a small but effective one of these while the latter rants about how, since he set Toni up with a safehouse and all that, he oughta be "grateful" to the stuck-up prick. Said speech also has a dash of BadassBoast about it.
