5.0 out of 5 stars GTA 3: Fun, Fun, Fun, 2 Feb 2003
Grand Theft Auto 3 is the third instalment in the addictive Grand Theft Auto series. Except this time it is in full 3 dimensions. GTA3 keeps the same non-linear gameplay as the other two games, but it feels even better with the 3D touch. I would describe it as a third person driving/shooting game.
The game is set in Liberty City. Liberty city is divided into massive well-designed islands; Portland (The Industrial Zone), Staunton Island (The Commercial Zone) and Shoreside Vale (The Residential Zone). You start in Portland and work your way to the next island by doing jobs for Gangs and bent cops. As you progress through the game you discover more weapons of destruction and faster vehicles. But be warned...Liberty City has a strict Law Enforcement System. Organised crime will be met by an organised response. Cops, SWAT teams, the FBI and the army will eventually become involved in bringing you down. Liberty city is not a pretty place.
There are over 80 missions for you to work your way through in GTA 3. As well as loads of side missions in ambulances, taxis, fire engines, police cars, SWAT vans and Tanks. You can car-jack over 50 vehicles, each with their own physics based on real life versions of that vehicle. Take my advice...don't attempt a sharp corner in an ambulance! In each vehicle you can listen to over two hours of music from a variety of radio stations.
GTA 3 is a revolutionary game. GTA 3 is totally addictive and the missions are well thought out. You feel like you are part of a living breathing city that never sleeps. Liberty city even has its own weather system. No bit of detail has been left out in this game. You are in a city where not everything is as it seems.

In each vehicle you can listen to over two hours of music from a variety of interesting radio stations. The radio stations alone will keep you amused for hours.

Sure, the PC version has some bugs, but that doesn't prevent GTA 3 from being classed as an excellent game that will keep you engrossed for hours.
