Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

I remember just before Vice City was about to come out there was a buzz on here about it, I just read a preview type thing for the new one, sounds awesome!

Game Description

Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas--a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption, where film stars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangsters. Now, it's the early 90s. Carl's got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster. On his return to the neighbourhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.


Considering how massively popular the last two GTA games were Rockstar couldve knocked out any old rubbish as their last GTA game this generation, but despite Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas not being a full sequel (it still uses essentially the same graphics engine as GTA III) it has more new features and ideas than the majority of official follow-ups.

For a start San Andreas itself is not a city but a whole fictional county, containing the San Francisco-esque San Fierro, the Las Vegas style Las Venturra and the Los Angeles inspired Los Santos. You can drive anywhere else you like in the countryside, between making the game four to six times the size of Vice City.

You can also now start up your own gang in the game, recruiting members and claiming territory--you can even build and operate your own casino once you get the necessary moolah. You cant just sit around and wait for the money to roll in, though--eat too much junk food and your character will grow fat and have to work out at a gym, as well as keep an eye on a new stamina meter.

The list of other additions and refinements are almost endless; above and beyond the usual claims of an improved aiming system for weapons you can now swim, ride bicycles, get your hair cut, take part in random break-ins and robberies... pretty much anything you were ever told not to do as a kid (except the getting a haircut bit).

New Features

.Based in the fictional state of San Andreas, featuring 3 cites

.Explore internal locations and the countryside

.Set in the 1990s

.You are what you eat--gain or lose weight to affect game physics and character appearance

Out 22nd October if you're interested...

No thanks. The only fun thing about GTA 3 onwards is blasting the fuck out of everything and everyone, therefore:

Attention span = 5 minutes

Game play = 1Hr Max.

I prefer the original myself

So he finds himself framed for homicide and then decides to make it a reality by driving over people instead. Eh?

Attention span = Not enough.

I'd rather be sweating all over a fast-paced ATB system than punching a bunch of people and getting chased by tanks
