I honestly believe Rockstar hit the top with GTA San Andreas. It is by far the best GTA they made to date. The creativity the storyline writers have is amazing. They only focused on making it interesting, instead of going down the realism route. Even after finishing the storyline, the game, being open world, gives you complete freedom to do whatever you want. You can mod just about every part of the game to make it fit to your liking. And there're even multiplayer mods made by third parties that'll offer years of fun. Spent nearly 6 years playing multiplayer myself. If you haven't tried GTA San Andreas yet, definitely give it a try. You'll regret not getting it sooner.

It was my first GTA experience and oh boy was it good. The freedom, to be able to do anything with an open world with thousands of possibilities just makes it the best of the best in the GTA series. The story itself is quite intriguing and often hilarious which will keep you hooked and make you play more of it. Most importantly, it's so much fun! All the things you can do in this game is crazy! Pulling off stunts on your Dirt Bike or just your car is just extremely fun and something that will have you hooked for hours. I did play the previous GTA titles after this and they were very nice and showed just how much the GTA title has evolved with each title and to that extent,the perfection that is San Andreas.
A genre defining title of its time!sas41 | Feb. 10, 2014 | See all sas41's reviews »
My countless hours in this game were all worth it, and I will never forget it!
This is perhaps the best grand theft auto game, the reason being that after San Andreas, all the GTA games focus on realism, while San Andreas Focuses on fun instead.
There is not much to say about this game really, it includes a great ( by that I mean 2004 award winner ) soundtrack and countless hours of gameplay, it has a strong modding community and even a Multiplayer Moddification for it!
This is a MUST HAVE!

I've been playing San Andreas on PC for over a year now. The game has a fantastic storyline within it with a ton of exciting twists. You meet some great characters within the game and control one of the greatest protagonists of GTA history (imo). You control Carl Johnson (CJ) as he returns to San Andreas following the death of his mother, after the funeral Carl decides to stay around and help out his family/gang which are the Grove Street. The story becomes from small-gang wars to the insane to create some mega-money.
100/100 - Best GTA ever.
Old but great.Fleexie | Feb. 7, 2014 | See all Fleexie's reviews »
Grand Theft Auto San Andreas is a pretty old game however it is perhaps one of the best games Rockstar have ever made. When it was released the graphics was the greatest at it time, and it was a visual pleasure to play the game. Even now so many years later the graphics are still good. It is maybe the GTA game with the most features and the longest story. It takes a lot of time to beat the story and then you have a lot of other great things you can do in the game. A lot of mini games, stunts and side missions. In Grand Theft Auto I have always enjoyed doing stunts, and this game is the best to do stunts in. You can do so many sick/awesome stunts that it is unbelievable. By having such a large open world as San Andreas has you can find a lot of places to do your stunts, in the cities, mountains or maybe the dessert it is your imagination that limits you.
There are a lot customization possibilities. Both cars and your character. You can tune your car but also do some great visual improvements so it is your personal vehicle. As for character customization you can change clothes, hair cuts, tattoos and you can change the looks in term of body type. If you overeat you gain wait and it is noticeable if you train in the gym and get musclemass then it is also noticeable.
All in all it is a great game if you haven't played it then hurry and buy it and play it. You have missed a lot.
