* 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.

* JerkassWoobie: Salvatore Leone.

to:

* JerkassWoobie: Salvatore Leone.Leone is a paranoid wreck of a Mafia Don in a strained relationship with his wife who later is barely rescued from an assassination attempt involving the crusher in the junkyard. He considers Toni to be the only person he can count on and even then his paranoia drives him to pull a gun on him before putting it down shocked by his own actions.
** Toni Cipriani too when you consider the verbal abuse he gets from his [[AbusiveParents mother]] and his [[AxCrazy extreme]] [[WellDoneSonGuy reactions]]. Not to mention, in the game's backstory Toni was a high-ranking member of the Leone Family until he was forced to go into hiding in another country after performing a hit on a high-profile rival on Salvatore's orders. He returns to Liberty City only to find himself stripped of his rank and forced to work for [[{{Jerkass}} Vincenzo Cilli]] who constantly disrespects him and has him perform increasingly dangerous jobs.



** The mission "Shoreside Redemption" isn't very popular either. The mission itself is fairly standard, if a bit difficult. You are tasked with escorting a newly aqquitted Salvatore to the courthouse in a police car while goons try to ram the prisoner transport van off the road. What makes this mission so notorious is the fact that using cheats can make this mission unwinnable, since Rockstar implemented a unique fail scenario for players trying to take the easy way.
** "False Idols" is another one. You have to locate and kill three different characters, (one of them in a ''helicopter'') before any of them reach their destination. What makes this one especially hard is that all three of them come from different islands, and killing them all requires memorising their routes, not to mention the fact that one enemy is in a bulletproof car, which forces you to waste precious time trying to ram the car off the road.

Added DiffLines:

** 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. A hidden package 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.

* CompleteMonster: [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Donald Love]] somehow manages to reach a special level of evil despite living in a CrapsackWorld populated with gangsters, [[SerialKiller serial killers]], and [[AxCrazy psychopaths]]. Introduced in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'', and having a cameo in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity'', Love at first seems fairly standard for the series, arranging a gang war between TheYakuza 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]].

** 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.

* PortingDisaster: Continuing the trend of mobile ports of GTA games being inferior to console & PC counterparts, ''Liberty City Stories'' on iOS & Android is an extremely nasty port, because apart from having the same problems as the previous games, it also has very limited graphics settings & compatibility issues with some phones & tablets, where the game refuses to work anywhere past the main menu. The fact that the port of Liberty City Stories was made by a different studio, Lucid Games, instead of the usual War Drum Studios, doesn't help. Possibly justified, considering this game was only released on the PSP & the Playstation 2 beforehand.

* [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter They Wasted A Perfectly Good Location]]: Considering you could steal helicopters & fly them in some missions, the lack of helicopters and/or rideable small planes make Francis International Airport is kind of glaring.
