GTA: San Andreas review — June 2005, UK edition
2 weeks ago
Conclusion: Minor graphical scars left from its painful transformation into a PC game do nothing to dull San Andreas’ inner beauty. The best of the series, and already a contender for game of the year.
Excerpt: System Requirements: Windows 2000 or XP 1GHz Pentium III or equivalent processor 256MB RAM 64MB video card with DirectX 9 compatible drivers 4.7 GB of hard disc space Developer: Rockstar North Rated AO (Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language, Strong Sexual Content, Use of Drugs) Rockstar Games\' flagship franchise, Grand Theft Auto, returns once again to outdo itself several times over in the massive Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
Excerpt: After reading Scott's main review for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas , I wondered what I could possibly add. Scott's writing is always a tough act to follow, and he covered it all— gameplay, story, sociological aspects, role-playing elements, and even the optional cornrows. I agreed with everything he touched on, so I sat down looking for words I could say that he didn't. It was tough, but eventually I did come up with something—"ten.
Summary: Parents need to know that this game is raunchy and violent and portrays just about every deviant act that a criminal could think of in full, living 3-D graphics. Players participate in drive-by shootings, deliver prostitutes to their johns, kill mob bosses, hijack vehicles, and learn to operate within the criminal world.
Excerpt: Who on this planet have not heard about Grand Theftt Auto: Vice City, especially after its successful debut on the Playstation 2 last year. So it's not surprising when Rockstar Games announced they are porting San Andreas to the PC and Xbox. And now, the PC version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is finally here! Grand Theftt Auto: San Andreas takes the series back to the early 90's, set in the fictional California-ish state of (what else?) San Andreas.
Excerpt: It's without a doubt the most clichéd of all hardboiled crime story clichés: the low down, dirty double-cross. The two previous games in the Grand Theft Auto series each began with a double-cross—my girlfriend referring to me as "small time," then shooting me during a bank heist in GTA III ; Tommy Vercetti taking the blame for a bad drug deal in Vice City.
Excerpt: Back in October 2004, Sony PlayStation 2 gamers were blessed with another installment in the already highly successful (and sometimes controversial) Grand Theft Auto series. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas ripped through the sales charts and received rave reviews from game critics everywhere.
Excerpt: Having played through the entire game of Grand Theft Auto San Andreas on the PS2, it is only natural that I wanted to see how the PC version fared. In general, I enjoy the PC version of the GTA series more than I do the PS2 ones. Not that the PS2 games are bad or anything, but having grown up as it were playing PC games, the controls are generally easier for me to pick up.
