I mean, fine, GTA wasn't ever really that serious before GTA 4, but this game takes it a little too far in my opinion. Normally, it wouldn't bother me one bit, but the core story is actually about something serious, so amidst all the drama, of a young Black man, who tries everything to break out of the hood, and still maintain a good relationship with his family and friends, who feel betrayed by him, having a jetpack, and stealing a military fighter plane is just way too stupid. Don't get me wrong, All of this is really fun. Even, or maybe especially the silly missions, yet the story is just weird. I mean, blackmailing a GTA character? Really? It's hard to worry about being framed for a murder of a single cop, when i Ran over 3 with my bike on the way there! And come on! A hun, that has CJ's fingerprints can keep him on a leash? What about a Bazooka, that's used to blow up a highways worth of cars, with their passangers still inside? I really hope he used a glove when operating that....
What can I say about this game? One of my first GTA... and one of my favorites. I will always love this game. It has a great storyline,a very large world and a lot of opportunities and freedom of action. Lots of interesting missions, as well as many other interesting places. I could continue to describe this game... but better to play it and rate it. Thank you RockStar for this wonderful game!
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
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the best of the 3D GTAs, with its compelling storyline, a great soundtrack, and a huge map to explore. The map features 3 cities (Los Santos (based on Los Angeles), San Fierro (based on San Fransisco), and Las Venturas (based on Las Vegas) with huge deserts and mountains to explore. The story is chilling with bits of plot twists that you never expected. Also, Big Smoke's order. There are many things to do while not on a mission, you can also eat food, customize CJ's clothes, hair, tattoos, etc. Highly recommend.
