Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Considering how massively popular the last two GTA games were Rockstar could’ve 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 can’t 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). --David Jenkins

Product 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 filmstars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers. Now, its 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank the lord for Rockstar North 30 Oct 2004
Quite simply, ITS MASSIVE. I played it non-stop the day i got it and i've covered an area i would reckon equivelant to the size of Vice City and 60% of the map remains undiscovered! You know all the details, your CJ your back to revive your gang and avenge the death of your mother, so no need for more of that. Anyways, i don't have the time or words!
There are bikes, street cleaners, Choppers, motorbikes and i believe aeroplanes, helicopters. TRACTORS, there are so many vehicles in this game you could probably waste a good couple of days messing around with them, thats without going into the customising. You can add alloys, bumpers, colours, nitro, hydraulics. Plus the handling is a damm sight better than in vice city, and since it was pretty ok this is a revelation.
Talking, as i was, about customisation, you can have beards, Elvis hair, B.A HAIR ( y'know B.A Baracus ). AWESOME. tatttos are there for the choosing, chains, tracksuits, jeans. The possibilities are endless.
Then there is the 'keep fit' element. Its strange at first, having to keep and eye on your muscle and stamina, but the excercises that you complete are so intuitive that you can't help but feel they add a certain 'something' to the game.
The visuals are awesome, the sounds are impressive. Pop-up's present but in a game of this size that streams off the disk you can allow some 'minor' flaws. Loading times are vastly improved.
I could go on but i won't since i'm off to play this awesome game some more!
Buy this game, you won't regret it. Just make sure you get it when you've got plenty o spare time.

5.0 out of 5 stars GTA: San Incrediblus!!! 31 Oct 2004
By A Customer
This is amazing. If you like the previous gta's you'll be in heaven with this one.
- Three huge cities to explore - built-up areas scattered among vast countryside.
- The visuals and landscapes are amazing.
- The fact that you can swim and climb adds a whole other dimension to the gameplay. Just running about simply isn't enough to get the job done.
- You can go to the gym and work out, making CJ more athletic. The more you work out, the greater his stamina and power.
- Similarly, the more you use weapons / vehicles, etc, the greater your accuracy / reloading / handling becomes.
- The police are smarter, as are gang members.
- Great new vehicles! Bikes - chopper, mountain bike, bmx (with amazing bunnyhops), police bike, forklift truck, campervan, parachute (!), loads of new cars, etc.
- Two player gameplay!! You can activate the second controller for some double-team mayhem.
- Fight against other gangs to gain territory across the city. When your land comes under attack you must go back to guard it.
- You can buy car upgrades - body parts, nitrous oxide, etc.
- Take pictures and save them to your memory card!
- Great music ranging from Alice In Chains, Ice Cube, Billy Idol, James Brown.
- Unlike in Vice City, when you reach a blocked bridge at the beginning of the game simply jump off and swim across! You're under police instructions to not leave the area so when you get to the other side you'll have a 4star wanted level! Try exploring new ground prematurely with a few cop friends!
- I don't think there's quite as much humour compared to vice city, but it's still really funny.
- Some of the blue 'blip' markers on the map are hard to spot when you're trying to speed across town.

4.0 out of 5 stars More of the same, only better 30 Oct 2004
The first thing that struck me with this game was the voice acting. I sat there wondering - "Is that Snoop Dogg?" - "Is that Samuel Jackson?" - yes it is. So, on the acting front, the character voices are really tops, Rockstar having pulled out all the stops to make their characters sound good.
But what about looks? Well, I bought this game along with my first PS2 console on its release date, and being a veteran of Xbox and Gamecube, the graphics were initially very underwhelming on my big TV. However, it is clear when you venture further into the game, that this game has a certain sheen that graphically gives it the advantage over the previous two installments.
There is less popup, which means that the massive (and I mean MASSIVE) environment looks all the more beautiful than that of its two older brothers. San Andreas is not a city, but a *state*, containing three entire cities. I found myself driving around having fun for over an hour, only to check the map and realise that what I had seen was but a quarter of one city, and that I had yet to see not only the other three quarters of it, but ALL of the other two cities, and ALL of the massive expanse of lush countryside that connects them all together.
Luckily, the mission stucture is intuitive and leads you gradually into the game, which has been a strength of the entire PS2 series so far, so you never feel lost, even when you drive out into the country and lose your car. The same "bridge under construction" mechanic has also been used to stop the player from getting lost miles and miles away from his initial set of missions.
