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.
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
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.
GTA 3 is the first 3d game in the series and it shows. Aiming is hard, and in fact, even your character moves veird, just like every character in that era. The graphics are a little dated, but mostly fine, and the car mechanics...well...the norcar cars handle finje-ish, but the big ones are like they were ballons! The slightest collision can turn the on their side! Ok, by slightest i mean slight by GTA standard....in real life, sure...you should never ride those trucks at that speed on the streets, but you know what i mean :) The Story is simple, yet entertaining. As usual, you start at the buttom, but gradually fight your way up to the to the top, fighting with every crime family in fiction. Also, am i the only one, who thinks the protagonist here is the same one as in the first 2 games?
After going bankrupt, the developer of the GTA has returned as Rockstar and made one of the most relevant and revolutionary game of all time - Grand Theft Auto 3. It's one of those games, where graphics, while looking dated by today's standards, it is not ugly as say early 3D/N64 era of games, but it's mostly thanks to how stylized this game is. Funny trivia about this game is that Driv3r publisher wanted developers to rush out the game to release it before this - and they sadly failed and GTA 3 was the first in the genre of... open world grand theft gangster gameplay. Game is pretty long, weapons are fun to use, music can be whatever you want if you don't like what is on the radio, and plot and voice-acting are stellar. Good game, but in my opinion one of the weaker in 3D series, mostly because the series progressed and had gone to do better things with time. For this price it is strongly recommended, because there are tens or even hundreds of hours worth of gameplay.
