Gaming flashback – Grand Theft Auto
Grand Theft Auto 2 (1999)
Retaining the overhead view of its predecessor, the second installment in the series added dynamic lighting, cops that pursued you off-road and gang warfare to the series. A total of seven distinct gangs, ranging from the yellow Yakuza-like Zaibatsu to the red Russian Mafia set a host of devious missions for you to complete – and started shooting at you if you were too closely tied to their rivals. SWAT teams made an appearance for the first time, resulting in numerous bullet-riddled confrontations.
