One of the best games for ps2ryanpaul | March 2, 2014 | See all ryanpaul's reviews »
Although the graphics shows it age, it still one of the best grand theft auto games ever created. This is the first game which made the series popular and it made everyone want to play it. The audio is awesome as there are a good set of radio stations and many selection of songs which made driving a joy (and also running over pedestrians).
This game is a classic that everyone will still enjoy. Being an open world game you can do anything even if your not into missions you can just walk around and do plenty of stuff such as shooting people, car jacking, hitting pedestrians, jump off a helicopter / plane. and shoot people again. It never gets boring and should be played by every gamer out there.
A revolution in "open world" games.Pawlus | Feb. 10, 2014 | See all Pawlus's reviews »
Grand Theft Auto is one of the titles, that We don't have to introduce to anyone. Released in 1997 video game became popular on the world, same as it's sequel. But GTA III is a total revolution in "open world" games. Amazing graphics (in times, when it was released) in 3D, and opportunities of things we can do in game caused, that players can play this game all days. And the main thread of game often wasn't the most important. Nothing better than runaway from the LAPD Police and increasing "wanted stars", sometimes for long hours after a exhausting day. Great way of relax, so much popular that up to this day people play it, even on mobile devices.

...games of that era. Definitely a must play classic. It introduced open-world with a blast (literally), it's got awesome gameplay, good enough to keep you playing for hours and hours even after the storyline ended. There is a large number of missions and each vary from the other. There is barely any repetition which is amazing for a game at the time; they also made a lot of side/bonus missions that assured you wouldn't get bored of the game if you weren't feeling like doing any of the main missions.
There is a lot of variety in weapons and cars, as well as secret locations where you can reward yourself with the best car in town. This game is a must-have: if you've played other GTAs and not this one, it's a part of the experience that you cannot miss; if you've never played a GTA game before and are willing to go back in history and have fun playing a revolutionary classic then definitely get this one. It's a steal.
Classic of classics.Unbenannte | Jan. 28, 2014 | See all Unbenannte's reviews »
I said: one day this game will be a classic. I was totally wrong, today it is a classic. Lots of reviews, most of them just saying how great this game is. Really if you haven't tried a GTA title before, then start here, this is the beginning and some people say its also the end. Controls are simple, lots of cars, guns, great story, awesome dlcs, multiplayer for having a good time, open world, go crazy. Even people whit GTA V will have GTA III, maybe you could call them nostalgic, but sincerely this game marked a revolution, a new Era. Its a classic, and its as cheap as 9.99, its a steal, I would pay more for it. You should have this one if you think yourself as a gamer. Hope this helps.

One of the great open world games of it's time.GTA III takes place in Liberty City and you play as Claude, who doesn't speak, yeah.I remember playing this when it first released and i just used cheats and destroyed everything in my path.If you have played this before you know that graphics don't make a good game.The story is well a GTA story, you are given a mission and you have to complete it, but of course there is a real story.The game does have some bugs, i remember a mission where you had to go up on a warehouse and if you run on the warehouse you get launched hundreds of feet in one direction and die instantly and that was pretty hilarious.I'ts a classic that every gamer should play at some point of his life
