GTA III is an inovative game, it started the concept of "open worlds" in video games. I love it even more than some of the newer installments of the franchise. It's atmospheric, a little dark and really entertaining. The protagonist rarely speaks - he just goes and does the job. The world is not just open - it changes as you progress through the story. Some parts of the city get unlocked and others get hostile. After you complete a specific mission in Portland a group of local gangsters become your enemies and whenever they see you, the'll do everything they can to kill you. The amount of side activities you can do is enormous for a game from that time. You can easily get lost in its vast universe. I liked the characters, the atmosphere, the plot, basically the "feel" of the game. One of the best experience in video games for me was getting through the last mission in the first part of the city - Portland (after several weeks of trying to complete it) and finally getting to see the Staunton Island. If you have never played this game, I totally recommend it, it's a must play.
Oh boy this game brings back memories. Love the fact that Rockstar did not take out the cheats because there is only two cheats that I care about: pedestrian have weapons and pedestrians attack each other. Makes the game totally chaotic but hella fun. Wish they had some achievements but it's whatever. Oh yeah and thank god for the controller mod. I can not play this with keyboard and mouse controls so thank you for the modder that made it so you can play with full controller support.
This game is not that good now that we have other sandbox 3D experiences to play, but the importance of GTA III back when it was released was so huge we can even think about it. If you were there when GTA 2 was released you probably thought how fun would be to have a GTA made from a third person shooter point of view. GTA III was like a dream come true, and it was the game that changed everything in the series. Right now the game feels really arcade, with bad racing controls and improvable physics, but it still has all the fun the game offered when it was released. Anyway, have in mind that if you play this after playing San Andreas or even Vice City you won't enjoy it as much as if you come from playing GTA 1 and GTA 2. The game that set the standards for a whole new genre just by changing the point of view.
First of all I have to say I played this game in 2014, after playing VC, SA and IV.It was a great surprise. The story is simple and your character is mute, but it works well enough .From start to finish you're basically getting revenge on Catalina, your ex girlfriend that shoots you right in the first cutscene. To do that, you must deal with many criminal organizations like the Mafia, Yakuza and the Cartel. There are also side missions that you get in public phones. The gameplay is what we expect from a GTA game , there are many vehicles to drive (including a tank, and a non-flying plane), a good weapon variety and the controls are simple. This is the only GTA game that I didn't need a controller to play, since you dont have bikes or helicopters. I only have two problems with this game, you can't control the camera while inside a vehicle and there is no map, only a minimap. Not having a map made me use a walkthrough in some missions where you have to travel through all 3 islands of the game.
GTA III is, quite simply, an incredible experience that shoundn't be missed by anyone mature enough to handle it.
