GTA2 has been completely optimized for play on modern PCs, but it keeps the same graphc environmnt. We will not find those marvellous graphic environments we enjoy when playing San Andreas, but we will have lots of fun in this 2D one.
Blood, action, robberys, cars, motorbikes, gangs,... all these ingredients make of GTA2 a great choice nowadays, mainly because it's totally free.
You're a street thug who does jobs for various gangs. Doing certain operations for certain gangs will get you respect from the particular gang, and killing off members of rival gangs could help too, so don't wait for more time, download it and enjoy.
