Classical game that everyone desired back in the days.


Grand Theft Auto III was a game that revolutionized the gangster game genre and widely introduced the concept of a sandbox into the gaming market. Players who knew previous versions of the game were amazed how much it had changed but all of the novelties were for the better, considering you had a good PC to run this title. Even after all this time, it is a great game you should try, although I would advise getting the smartphone version. It looks a bit better on a smaller screen.

The game that took over the world


Grand theft auto III was the game that was in every corner of the news when it was released a long ago, it started a beast that we know and love today: 3D open world Grand Theft Auto. Love it or hate it, this franchise has gone big since Grand Theft Auto III and it's innovating mechanics and vision of the future that now seems dated, but back in the day, was something shocking. It doesn't have a deep story, engaging characters, pretty graphics, but the game itself stand strong as one of the pillars of the gaming history that we know today. You should give it a try. Recommended.

The Grand Theft Auto that truly started it all


The difference between Grand Theft Auto 2 and 3 are astounding, Grand Theft Auto 3 has mostly "kill that guy", "steal that car" and "bomb that car" missions but the game was still the best open-world game out, and is still among the early 2000s classics, controls are great, action is amazing and car music is good, story doesn't hold up very good nowadays but the game is as fun as it was back in the day.

not as good as the other GTAs


GTA III isn't as great as GTA San Andreas, GTA IV or GTA V but it i still great for one purpose: GTA III was groundbreaking when it first came out. An open world third person shooter was not really a thing before GTA III. If the game has been pushed to the side by GTA SA, GTA IV and GTA V, then why do I still like this game? Because: This game runs on my laptop. Bored at school? Just open GTA III ON YOUR LAPTOP. Wanna kill a ?????????? between your history and chemistry lessons? Go right ahead. A solid 30 FPS experience. One downside though: I don't have a mouse for my laptop so shooting is a bit of a problem. :P But this game wasn't made for laptops. Laptops weren't really a thing back in 2001. GTA III doesn't have the great storyline of GTA SA. GTA III doesn't have the great map of GTA V. GTA III dosen't have the great hand to hand combat of GTA IV. But GTA III works somewhat as a replacement of GTA SA and GTA V when you are bored. It doesn't take 3 hours to load to every menu like GTA V and it doesn't call you a "BUSTA! STRAIGHT BUSTA!" all the time. The story is okay and the graphicsa are okay considering that it is 16 years old. I just wished that the FPS lock of 30 FPS would be released on the PC so that I can get 60 FPS but it is 16 years old so ofcourse the support has been ended. Damnit. It is a fun GTA SA/V mini when you aren't around on your main computer and just have to go out and kick some low resolution

Great Game, Better With Mods


This was a great game to lose hours of my free time to, but it was even better when I discovered something really fun; mods. So many things you can do by downloading a few files and following some simple directions. Changing the way your character looks to getting to drive around in some pop culture related vehicles just for the heck of it. And oh yeah, there is the story and graphics, both still holding up pretty decently today. I highly recommend this game.
