This game was revolutionary to the sandbox genre as a whole. It took the open world gameplay of GTA3 and Vice City, but throw in a bunch of other new things to do such as flying jets, using flamethrowers, attacking people with dildos and chainsaws. It also gave players that feeling of being a west-coast gangsta straight from the 90's. This was also the last GTA game to have a good rock radio station (Radio X) it does have some problems and difficulty spikes which can be annoying, but it's still a timeless classic regardless.

This is a fun game for both its' shooter and driving aspects, although I enjoy the driving more than the shooting. This game will let you take down lamp posts and things like that, but there are more consequences for hitting them than many other games from this era. I really enjoy just driving around. Shooting can be fun as well, but basically I just use auto aim most of the time and shooting without holding the aim button is very difficult. I don't like most of the mini games because a lot of them have to do with pushing a button at the right time and that is not really my thing, but some people enjoy them. Still, I thought there were enough good things in this game to give it an 85.

Even gta 5 released but im unable to delete this game form my mind!! Especially while talking about carl johnson,the lead player in this game...man that game play with cj is amazing !! Wonderful flight control which is might as well started from this game...many extra features like swimming, and one awesome thing is MOD customisation. Gta sa mod customisation is one hell of a thing to try. Are you a modder? then this is definitely your game...i used to love modding this game with new cars,roads,characters,maps and lot more !!

San Andreas is the first game that feels like the GTA we know nowadays. A massive open world, customizable character features, barbers, workouts, a personal story, different cultures within different segments of San Andreas, great characters, and a massive arsenal. San Andreas brought the series to the next level, and is still an amazing experience.
This GTA will always be THE GTA for mePlayTyrant | May 8, 2015 | See all PlayTyrant's reviews »
Replayed it from start to end several times on PS2 and PC, this game proves to be a masterpiece. The music, the ambientation, the 'minigames', you can do everything you want, you're free to go to the gym and get stronger, you can be thin, you can be fat if you eat too much, you can choose your clothes, your hairstyle... and that's just a minimal part of this gem. The story is great, you won't have time to get bored because there's always something to do. Also, the side missions are very enjoyable, and I'd say they are meant to be played as main missions. Check it for yourself, the graphics are not the best of course, but you will get used to it and you'll experience one of the best GTA games out there. 100% recommended.
