4.0 out of 5 stars a very good game at a very good price 18 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
when i first got this game on the pc, i thought it was one of the best games i had played in a long time. it had everything a young adult wanted: mob killings, drug traffiking, hold-ups, hijacking, hit and run, and of course murder one. unfortunately, i had to sell my pc, so i got grand theft auto for the playstation. i found that it had lost nothing from the transition from the pc to the playstation. it still had the mob killings, hit & run and murder one, but it still kept it's amazing musical score, including the amazing "Grand Theft Auto". not only this, but it has an amazing range of cars that you can steal, which is basically the point of the game: the bulldog, the penetrator, the tanker and the amazing tank, complete with firing turret! the basic story of the game is this. you start as a lowly street punk, stealing cars to make some cash. as you progress the HUGE levels, you climb through the ranks of organised crime, making friends in high places. although the game is free range, there are missions which you can undertake by visiting the various payphones scattered around the cities. these missions range from being a getaway driver to hijacking a fuel tanker, fitting a bomb to it and parking it outside the headquarters of a rival gang. the only trouble is that it does suffer from slow-down if you are doing too mqany things at once. for example if you are tailing a car with a four cop rating. but this minor imperfection aside, this still remains a classic... My advice is simple: BUY THIS NOW, KAPISH?!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Timeless Classic 28 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Video Game
This game is one of the all time greats made by the people at Sony, the idea of this game is to ride around the backstreets commit crimes to get cash (and points) without getting "Busted" or "Wasted". Due to the immense popularity of this game a sequel, fittingly named GTA2 hit the streets, the 1st edition is essential to play the 2nd. This game involves stealing nice motors in order to avoid the cops. You will find you spend most of your time completing missions for cash. This involves relatively simple gameplay and the control of your character is also very easy. Unfortunaely the only flaw with this game, is that you can't progress anywhere, the whole game is based around the same city, but the city is very large and believe me even though it is only one level you won't find yourself bored with this timeless classic that I keep going back to. Much better than the spin-offs.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A great game now but revolutionary at the time for its open world game play and fun multi style sound track. Bear in mind you can put the disk in your CD player and play the sound track songs for the game and the in game sound effects!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Classic That Started It All! 27 July 2012
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Arguably, this is the title that started it all. Kids of today, pay attention because this is the game to play! This is the 'Classic That Started It All' - Grand Theft Auto on the PS1.

Basically, the game puts you in control of a small-time criminal who must rise up the ladder by completing jobs (known as Missions in-game) for various criminals. Completing these missions earns you Cash or Points that ultimately allows you the push on to the two other cities within the game.

That brings me on to the cities of the game - the player has 3 major American cities to explore and/or get lost in. You have Liberty City (your starting point), Vice City and San Andreas, each city plays in that order, respectively. The 3 cities contained in this game seem fitting to me, given that the spin-off games afterwards would be set in these 3 locations. Another thing to mention (although it is fairly obvious now, due to the spin-offs) is that the cities are based on real locations: Liberty City is New York City, Vice City is Miami and San Andreas is either Los Angeles or San Francisco in this game (it is NOT a state in this game, in comparison to its' 2004 counterpart game).

In terms of playing and completing the story (the Missions), you (the player) have full creative control, so to speak. 99% of the time, you are free to complete jobs the way YOU want to... meaning that this classic title really started it all - this classic title 'defined' open-world, free roaming gameplay.

That leads on to my next, and final, point. If you are not happy to just float around the map completing missions, there's no worries there! You can simply smash crates on city streets that provide the player with weapons and Bob's your Uncle... you can shoot/kill/blow up 'anything' in sight, literally!
