To put a marginally less biased blessing on the game, I can HIGHLY recommend getting the Dreamcast version on GTA2. Just like the others it plays really nicely (and you can find out Brian's surname by reading the credits), but it combines the nice graphics of the PC version with the 'pop in the machine and play' convenience of the PS one.
LOL, Iain. Wasn't 'hyping' it or anything, I just know a few folk were after it here. Seems the eBay market for it has bottomed a little too, which is a good thing. Hate seeing good games go for inflated prices, stopping 'ordinary' people from grabbing them.
