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.
This is a fun game for both its' shooter and driving aspects, although I enjoy the driving more than the shooting. This game will let you take down lamp posts and things like that, but there are more consequences for hitting them than many other games from this era. I really enjoy just driving around. Shooting can be fun as well, but basically I just use auto aim most of the time and shooting without holding the aim button is very difficult. I don't like most of the mini games because a lot of them have to do with pushing a button at the right time and that is not really my thing, but some people enjoy them. Still, I thought there were enough good things in this game to give it an 85.
Even gta 5 released but im unable to delete this game form my mind!! Especially while talking about carl johnson,the lead player in this game...man that game play with cj is amazing !! Wonderful flight control which is might as well started from this game...many extra features like swimming, and one awesome thing is MOD customisation. Gta sa mod customisation is one hell of a thing to try. Are you a modder? then this is definitely your game...i used to love modding this game with new cars,roads,characters,maps and lot more !!
San Andreas is the first game that feels like the GTA we know nowadays. A massive open world, customizable character features, barbers, workouts, a personal story, different cultures within different segments of San Andreas, great characters, and a massive arsenal. San Andreas brought the series to the next level, and is still an amazing experience.
