I have to agree with most of the others that lcs is a big step down, but the storyline and missions bring it right back up! The storyline is absolutely amazing (seriously, I play it over and over, I even bought it for my vita it's that good!) and the missions are action packed! Especially on the third island, whilst GTA vcs has enabled more things, such as planes, helicopters, hovercraft, more cars, etc. So it depends on what you buy a GTA for, lcs if you love storylines (or wondering around, there's more to see...), VCs if you like flying or fairgrounds, or glitchy ass graphics etc... I like GTA lcs!
