The first ever 3d game from rockstar games !! Gta 3 started this rockstar era. This is the first gta game ive played and it blowed my mind the very first time.It felt awesome in stealing cars and free roaming since i was a child.But as i grow up, i came to know about it is full of missions..outstanding missions.I guess all of you had completed this game just like me.Even though its a old game i just want to keep on playing it even after completing it again lol. If this game is no hit..probably there will be no base for rockstar .

I adored this game as a kid, and it's still fun today. The world and characters are still enjoyable, and it's still fun to cause acrade-style mayhem. When compared to later games though, it doesn't stack up. The graphics are horribly blocky even for a PS2 game, the controls are floatier than later games, and there's just not as much depth in most aspects. It's still fun, but the later games have more to them.
First GTA to offer 3D and much, much more!Ho0pz4sho | April 26, 2015 | See all Ho0pz4sho's reviews »
Released in 2002, GTA III is the 5th installment of an already acclaimed series. The novelty it offered was the 3D graphics. And boy, let me tell you, the graphics were amazing. You're Claude, a bank robber who gets caught during a heist and is left for dead by his girlfriend. After you manage to escape prison time, the fun begins. Making acquaintance and working for different criminals (from Italian mafia bosses, to Yakuza leaders, and all kinds of different sorts of people that inhabit Liberty City). All of the action takes place in Liberty City, a somewhat interesting depiction of New York. The city is quite large, offering hundreds of hours of gameplay, making sure you never get bored. There's also a large variety of cars and weapons to choose from, and also there are a lot of secret locations and hidden packages that add to the overall completion. The game's main missions are mostly linear, but they offer you a whole lot of liberty. The only real advantage the main missions bring is that they uncover new areas of the city (3 to be exact). Other than that, you're free to do whatever you like (you can drive around, kill people, be a taxi driver, be an ambulance driver, etc.) One of the greatest aspects of the game is the carefully picked radio stations. Each radio station has it's own vibe, own songs, and own commercials. I give it a 92/100 mostly because it doesn't offer multiplayer. But don't be fooled, the single player itself is so vast and amazing that it will take hundreds of hours to explore and complete.

First of all, I'd like to say thanks for the sale earlier these days. Grand Theft Auto 3 has been released in 2002 and was the very first GTA game that went to 3D. When I first opened the game (after a very long time) after I bought it here, I was about to cry. That intro video with its music, the old classic opening, made me very sad, not because I hate it, but because it looked really awesome. Brings so much memories from the very old days. This game, in my personal opinion, is definitely the best GTA game (for me at least) for now (not sure how GTA5 will be). All those epic (and sometimes easy and annoying) missions make me feel like I am in 2002 or so. It all smells on the old days. There's a good reason why people say "Old, but gold." which is true and everyone who has played this game years ago will gain some wonderful experience the game did feature from its release day. Even tho the game has no in-game map (you can't take a look at the whole map from the menu like in other GTA games, which is a disadvantage. But hey, the game got released 13-14 years ago.), Liberty City still looks very awesome and if you happen to use some cool mods, you're golden. What is worth a mention here is the protagonist (called "Claude") who also appeared in San Andreas as well. He's known to be one of the only protagonists (if not the only) that never spoke a simple word. There's a good reason why this game has been remade for the modern smartphones and it also got a remake on GTA4 as a mod which looks wonderful. This game will bring old generations' memories and will show the new ones where it all begun (of course, I am not referring to the GTA series only, but Open-World games in common). It's definitely worth every cent you spend to buy this game.

Before this game was released, I was really hyped about it. I was waiting for it to come out for a really long time. I used to play GTA 2 a LOT. When GTA III finally came out, it was even better that what I expected it to be. The game was real deal. Like in every GTA game, you had two, invisible, paths you could take, depending on your personality - the mass murderer, where you just run around the Liberty City shooting everyone for fun or the more serious approach - game completionist, where you don't do crazy stuff and focus on completing given missions. For that time, when the game was released, it had great graphics. Everything looked quite realistic, except when you ran around the town shooting everyone down. Even these days, whenever I turn this game on I am not disappointed by the graphics. I didn't have any problems with controls on both PC and the PS2 - true gamers adapt to any controls. Although at the start it was a bit hard to get used to those controls. I also loved the storyline. It was really in-depth. Also the missions were catchy - couldn't stop playing for hours (this is a good thing)! But problem that dropped the game's score down is that, personally, I thought that the map was rather small, but it couldn't be bigger - game was released in 2001. I'd recommend this game for everyone. A really amazing oldschool experience.
