Fantastic game though a little dated nowbritishlad | May 11, 2013 | See all britishlad's reviews »
This game is probably the most fun game I (and most gamers) I have ever played. Driving through the city, shooting innocent pedestrian as I drive by, running over hookers and stealing their money, speeding over a bridge with the cops on your tail. It doesn't get much better then this. There are many people for you to kill, cars to steal, and missions to be completed. But this one is not for people who are stupid or young enough to think you can do all of these things in real life, because you can't. But, it's good for a laugh and to help you relax after a long day.
The game starts off with a scene of three people robbing a bank. As they're about to get away, the girl shoots you and you're arrested. Then, you escape when the convoy that was taking you to prison is attacked by a gang that wants to break out one of their members. They then bomb the bridge and you're free! Then, your friend helps you get some work with the Mafia, and the rest is history.
When the game was released on the PC there was a few bugs and glitches though I never had any problems myself but I can't say if these bugs were fixed in a patch or not
This game is great and like most gamers probably got plenty of hours out of it!
Best GTA Out ThereNuxaider | April 24, 2013 | See all Nuxaider's reviews »
GTA 3 has a place in my heart as the best GTA ever made. It has a serious yet at times humorous tone, great graphics (when it was first released), a fun sandbox world to explore.
Graphics: Though obviously outdated, it was great at the time. Though the quality isn't as good, it has a very nice aesthetic.
Sound: While GTA 3 doesn't have a noteworthy original soundtrack, its selection of songs on the radio are excellent and very nostalgic.
Gameplay: The game manages to create fun missions that are still somewhat serious, which is a major accomplishment for any sandbox game. And of course, there are the sandbox elements. Various vehicles and weapons make it fun to explore the world and destroy everyone in your path.
Overall, this is an amazing sandbox game that may be outdated, but is still a blast to play.
