This started all the "open world" 3d games. And this is just the beginning of greatness, as each installment in the "Grand Theft Auto" series gets better from here. The story and crazy amount of missions are top notch. The music and voice acting is superb. If you enjoyed this on your console, you'll enjoy it even more in native 1080p graphics. Even with the "not HD textures" this game, to me, stands the test of time.

Ah I can remember these good old times, when GTA III has been released! It was so amazing, that new effects and these Graphics! I bought it on steam because my CD isn't working any more. But these 9,99 $ had been investigated in a great game! For fans of the GTA Series it is not Possible to 'forget' it, because it is the beginning of all! It is great that you can switch between the perspectives and the controls are simple, not so difficult like the controls of today's GTA's. I would recommend it to every person who is interested in the GTA series! I'll give the game 20 Points for the Story, 10 points for the Graphics, 20 points for these possibilities ( 2001 they were completely new features ), 30 Points for this great Open world and 5 Points for Rockstargames :)

For those, who may not ever heard of the Grand Theft Auto series, well the third one is a tps. And even more. The player can steal and drive any vehicles, which he/she confronts. This means different cars, trucks, buses, even a small plane.
The story is about a small thief, who wants big money, but gets easily caught in a sticky situation and ends up in a prison truck. On the way he manages to escape with a fellow prisoner, via an explosion, caused by the columbian cartel. This is how the player’s journey begins.
Despite GTA III was released 12 years ago, enjoying the gameplay can get you over the fact, that it isn’t so pretty nowadays. The physics are it’s own (12 years!), but this game still holds onto that feeling. Obligatory.

Oh boy I can remember the day I first played this game in 2002. (in 2002 i would rate 9.6) It was such a groundbreaking game, the first time i entered a virtual world that felt like a real world. To have do freely whatever you want, have fun on wheels, kill (innocent)people, f*ck hookers and just wreak havoc in a convincing realistic world.
The world was very well detailed and the size of it was huge. The missions were absurd, hilaric, sadistic, diverse and fun to play. The story was about how you got lucky and escaped during a prison transfer and fight your way up to be the biggest Badass in Liberty City. But the thing i remember best, is the Soundtrack. (like most gta's)
On the downside, the world was pretty empty besides the main missions and controls (like al GTA's on pc) were at best mediocre.
I have completed the main story a few weeks ago and most side-missions. To 2013 standards this game is pretty crap. The game hasn't aged well and now i would rate it a meager 6.1. The graphics suck, and also all the other good aspects have been done better. However it still is my favorite GTA after Vice City and SanAn and nostalgic feelings are priceless.So if you had fun with it in 2002, you are likely to have it again. I sure did for 20 hours in the last few weeks. Average rating 7.9

GTA III is a great open world game wit varied gameplay and a cast of interesting characters who help to progress the interesting storyline and add to the overall feeling of the sandbox city. You can do lots of things in Grand Theft Auto Three. If you want to drive fast and run over civilians you can! Or do a bank heist or just muck around in the vast city. GTA III offers you the chance to do all these things and more. The only limitations of the game is that the graphics are dated and the control system could be better but these don't drag away from the brilliant core experience.
