5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, 11 May 2002
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto III (PS2) (Video Game)
For the first time I can say I have played a perfect game.
This takes the concept from its two predecessors on the PSOne and betters them. Instead of the previous "2D" view we are offered Driver-Style 3D interaction in a New York style city; Liberty City.
The graphics in this game are impressive, very impressive, it took me a few minutes when playing the game to realise that it wasn't an FMV I was staring at. The entire city is full of colour depth and high resolution. And unlike predecessing similar games (Driver 2 for example) things don't fade out of view as soon as they're in view. Explosions, guns, blood. It all looks very real in GTA3.
Onto the gameplay, and yet again GTA3 blows you away. You can do just about anything in Liberty City. Blow up a car, mug an old lady, beat a prostitue to the ground and steal her money, hi-jack an aeroplane. The initial concept for gameplay is to complete a series of missions in succesion which eventually propells you to becoming the city's most violent and notorious gangster. Should this not intreague you or, whilst playing GTA3, you just get bored of it... there's an infinite amount of other attractions in the city to keep you occupied.
Onto sound, usually with graphics this good sound is sacrificed as a result; but not with GTA3, you're offered top quality sound with a very "stereo" feel to it. And the 'In Car Music' offers entertainement and builds upon the realism factor in the game.
All this said people who aren't fascinated by infinite posibilites in a game may not find this game does it for them. Anyone else I guarantee will want to play this game...
