Well, here's the old gem called "GTA: San Andreas". Years have passed, and this one is still one of the best ever. I still prefer San Andreas even after Rockstar released GTA V. It's an instant-classic. The map, the characters, the story, the places, the guns, the radio-stations, the cheat codes we used to put in the game back in the days, the graphics, the dialogues... that nostalgia! San Andreas is still the real deal. An astonishing game, especially for the year it was released (2004). You're gonna have a lot of fun with this game. If you're a fan of the series, this is a "must-have". 100/100 rating from me.
Completed it like 8times and i wont stop! Loving the fact its free to mod. I still remember making CJ ur favourite characters like Goku :D Vehicles are good. The thing that made the game brilliant is the CJ. Carl Johnson was the main character. Basically if i can chose any other gta or san andreas. U know the answer! :D
First of all, Grand Theft Auto is a title that is related primarily to virtual boundlessness and open game worlds. It has revolutionized the sandbox genre in many ways. GTA: San Andreas is not an exception. When it came out it was the best in the series in terms of limitless gameplay and variety of ingame activities. The missions have become harder and more memorable. A lot of new features are included. You can customize vehicles, add performance upgrades, you can change your hairstyle and even make CJ more muscular by going to the gym. One of the features that I missed in the previous GTA titles is flying an airplane. There is just one plane in GTA: Vice City and it's a seaplane - flying is not as good as in GTA: San Andreas. There are a lot of aircrafts that you can get and also flying is a major part in some missions. One thing that I liked more in GTA: Vice City is the atmosphere of the 80s and the soundtrack which perfectly matches it. But that's just a personal opinion. So, if you are new to the series and haven't played the new games yet, you'd be fascinated by GTA: San Andreas. It's not as good as the famous GTA V, but it's a must have for the fans of the genre.
This PC version plays just like the original version did, which is a very very good thing. It's classic GTA with good graphics and the funny story and gameplay that we all love about the series. Nothing new was added, but that's a good thing. If you loved the original version of this game, be sure to pick up this one! There were only two things I didn't like about the game. First, it does not natively support xbox 360 nor xbox one controllers. For those to work you have to download a hack and even then, the controller only works about 95% perfectly. Some buttons are in odd places and can't be reassigned. So if you are going to play this, you will probably end up just using a keyboard and mouse. Second thing I didn't like is that due to music licenses expiring, the game was updated to remove some of the music that was on the radio stations.
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.
