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 gangbangers. Now, it's the early 90's. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A game that will forever be one of the greatest! 14 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well where do I begin? A game that was initially released as a Playstation 2 title in 2004 Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is considered, by many, to be the greatest Grand Theft Auto title to date. This game was revolutionary in many ways; it contained a map of such a size that it would embarrass most current generation games, it had a voice acting list that has to be seen to be believed and it had a hugely compelling story-line with in-game mechanics that took all the best aspects from the previous two GTA 3 games and made them better. If this was not enough there are so many extra things that you can do whilst not following the main story, this can be anything from visiting the gym to increase CJ's muscle stats, entering a shooting range to increase your weapon skills or going to a driving school to improve your skills in various modes of transport. As introduced in Vice City you will find yourself flying helicopters, driving a huge variety of vehicles and riding on sea in speed boats, there is literally so much that this game has to offer.

I was one of the many that had this game on the Playstation 2 many years ago. After recently purchasing a high-end multimedia computer I was told that the PS2 version cannot be compared to the PC version as the latter is so vastly superior. Once I installed the game I went into the settings menu to find many settings that were fully adjustable and naturally I maxed them all out to see what would happen, this customization included everything from 1080p video to full render distance (something the PS2 suffered GREATLY with). When I went to start a new game I was blown away by how fast this game loaded.

5.0 out of 5 stars All time great? 6 Sept. 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game must be one of the all time greats. From a seemingly confusing and humble start, the game just grows and grows as Carl Johnson gets involved acros a huge landscape of amazing locales and imaginative situations. An excellent teaching experience in ghetto culture while, at the end, all the story comes together in the final showdown. A game to play and play again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes time to get used to. 3 April 2012

The game is exactly like the ps2 version apart from, different controls which take time to get used to and better graphics. It's easier to play if you use a joypad or a usb xbox360 controller.

5.0 out of 5 stars it's easy peasy, even on Windows 7 64bit 14 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase
I don't know how so many folks had trouble installing this, it's easy peasy, even on Windows 7 64bit, if you go into Properties before you install it and tell it that you want it on Windows 7, what could be easier. You do have to have the disc in when you play the game, and a Windows pop up does tell you that the colour tone gets changed whilst you play the game, but, it changes back again when you're finished, so, no problems really, I don't know what all the fuss was about.
I can't give it anything less than 5 stars, the sound is brilliant, the graphics a bit ropey although it is 10 years old and I'm playing with a 2GB card installed, so, I can't expect everything, but, the game is just how it was all those years ago, absolutely fantastic, now I just have to remember how to ride that bike.......lol

5.0 out of 5 stars A well made PC port. 4 Feb. 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you have even a Medium to low gaming PC, this game has the potential to look so much better than its
ps2 or xbox equivilant.

Its runs a lot better on my dads Athlon x2 processor and Nvidia 250 graphics card very smooth and pretty, and if you dont know what that means, those are some old PC components.

I'm very much looking forward to what it'll look like on my
i5 2500k + GTX550ti gaming rig when its assembled. I've already run vice city in HD on max settings on a little Dell Optiplex 745 combined with a low profile GT610 to help out and a large HD monitor, and it looks gorgeous and like a whole new game to make up for
the massive disappointment that was GTA4.

Of course Modding is also 100% easier so you can pick and choose cars, textures, themes or character skins you wish to add which is always fun when you've finished the actual game.

I don't think it ever crashed or even slowed down, well worth it if you have a PC with a medium power graphics card (a GT640 would easily run this, and that's not powerful by any stretch of the imagination)

worth noting that it also comes in a very cool "book like" case with a much bigger manual inside and map background.

5.0 out of 5 stars GTA San Andreas PC 18 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is not just a awesome game. It's almost a whole new world to immerse your self in.
Even if you don't want to attempt any of the missions just yet there's still plenty to do.

At the beginning when you get on the BMX Cycle down to Roboi's Food Mart and do the asset mission, switch BMX's to start. Even if you fail to complete all four levels it won't be to long before you acquire the £10,000 to purchase the safe house next to the airport, now you've got a safe house with a garage.

Get a car, it doesn't matter which. Now go the airport gate and park it by the security cabin by the gate. Clime on the roof of the car, clime on the roof of the Cabin and you're in. Get inside the Dodo, fly around a bit, get you licence so you can enter anytime you like. No for some real fun

Fly over to Las Venturas airpost by jet, get a car and go over to the small parking lot top left, go to the lower level and get yourself a minigun, back to the airpost then back home. It's fast, furious. Or Las Venturas airpost by jet and get the RPG
