* CompleteMonster: [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Donald Love]] somehow manages to reach a special level of evil despite living in a Crapsack World populated with gangsters, serial killers, and psychopaths. Introduced in ''Grand Theft Auto III'', and having a cameo in ''Vice City'', Love at first seems fairly standard for the series, arranging a gang war between the {{Yakuza}} and TheCartel just to lower property values. Though, at the time it was hinted he had [[ImAHumanitarian more sinister appetites]]. This is eventually confirmed in this game, where he's shown feasting on corpses and sending Toni Cipriani to collect bodies for him to devour. Aligning himself with [[TheMafia the Leone crime family]], Love runs in the race for mayor, sending Toni Cipriani out to murder his rival's campaigners. Losing his fortune in his failed campaign, Love makes plans to regain his fortune, with his first step being to [[BastardUnderstudy murder his mentor]], real-estate tycoon Avery Carrington, in order to steal his city development plans. He then has Toni recover Carrington's body to cannibalize later. Love's worst crime, however, is masterminding the deaths of thousands of people through the bombing of the heavily-populated Fort Staunton city district, just so he can make money off of redeveloping the district. A thoroughly depraved man, Love would stoop to any low imaginable to [[{{Greed}} fill his pockets]] or [[ItsAllAboutMe glorify his ego]].

Added DiffLines:

* GameBreaker: [[ItMakesSenseInContext Selling scooters]]. There's a bike-selling minigame in the middle island, and once you've sold 10 of each 4 bike variant[[note]]They won't respawn infinitely before it's beaten once[[/note]], you can replay the mission to sell infinite amounts of any bike. The "Faggio" is easily sold by driving around in small circles. Each 5 sold gives you 2500$ ''in addition to the previous reward''. Repeat this long enough and eventually you'll start earning ridiculous amounts of money. It's even easier on the PSP, since you can just put the system in sleep mode if you get tired and continue later.


Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: A common complaint about the game is that Massimo Torini, the BigBad, doesn't really do that much and barely even appears.

** The PS2 version suffers from severe framerate issues. Yes, even the digital [=PS3=] version. It's playable, but notable since the PSP version came first and runs much better on a significantly weaker system.

* ThatOneSidequest: The game ramps up the difficulty for obtaining some of the hidden packages to an almost insane level. One hidden package is located on top of a gas station roof in Portland is considered particularly difficult to reach, and even GuideDangIt assistance is unhelpful. Another is located on a steal beam supporting the suspension bridge, only reachable by a perfectly-time motorcycle jump.

* TheScrappy:
** Ma Cipriani, Toni's domestic mother is this to some fans. Mostly in the early of game berating Toni for not being fearless like his father even though he killed countless enemies to accomplish goals. Her scrappiness reaches to [[UpToEleven extreme levels]] when she decides to call hit on her own son wanting Toni to die like "real man". On bright side, when Toni becames made man she calls hit off and she is never seen nor heard ever again.
** Vincenzo, who is heavily implied to be GreenEyedMonster. At first, it's ambiguous whether he really set Toni up to be arrested by police or not, causing Toni to be pissed off at him and crushed his car. Then, because of this, he tried to kill Toni. He failed.
** As if she wasn't bad enough in GTA III, Maria is worse in this game. Some of Toni's problems are because of [[NeverMyFault her screw-ups]].

* MoralEventHorizon: Paulie Sindacco intersects the horizon with the attempted murder of Salvatore, sending his henchmen to take him to the crusher.
** Toni's mother has probably crossed the line with the attempted murder of her own son for not being "man enough".
** If there was a point where Donald Love had crossed the line, it was when he planned and executed the bombing of the Fort Staunton city district, killing potentially ''thousands'' of people, just so he can earn a buck over its redevelopment.

* HilariousInHindsight: Donald Love's ridiculous mayoral campaign became is a lot funnier now that [[UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump the man he's based on]] has been elected President of the United States.
