5.0 out of 5 stars over a month of pure entertainment, 25 Mar. 2002
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto III (PS2) (Video Game)
I bought this game on february 6th, and only just completed the central story last night (march 24th). Thats pushing 2 months. I played it almost every day, and some days more than made up for the days i didnt have time to play it. Since buying GTA3 i also bought SSX tricky and devil may cry, both are (in my opinion) some of the best games on the PS2, but i keep finding myself coming back to GTA3. Thats how addictive it is.
If you are reading this, considering buying GTA3, try to play either GTA or GTA2 first, then you will really appreciate the jump from 2D to 3D. And what a jump it is! From the top-down view of the first 2 games, to the crazy taxi style view of GTA3. Only Metal gear solid 2 rivals the graphics of this, and in my opinion, it beats it, considering there is about 5 seconds loading time between cities, and only about 30 seconds loading at the start.
GTA3 is the first game in the series with a proper storyline. It may be a clichéd mafia story, but there are many unique twists which keep it alive.
If you have played GTA or GTA2, you will know how exciting the police chases are, but you havn't lived until you have experianced a GTA3 police chase. Because of the 3D graphics, many new escape routes are available, and now helicopters chae you too, and if you have a rocket launcher, you can shoot the choppers down too.
The sounds of the city are amazing too, as everr car makes some sort of noise, as well as the pedestrians, who come out with random quotes. when you get in a car, there are 8 (i think) GTA radio stations, ranging from Hip-hop to Classical and the hilarious phone in station Chatterbox.
If all that wasnt enough, there are many mini-games & Sub-Missions: Taxi driver (basically crazy taxi round the GTA cities), Vigilante (get a police vehicle and kill Criminals!), Paramedic (rescue people in an ambulance), and, to keep those hardened-gamers happy, there are 100 hidden packages dotted around the 3 cities. There are many more, but i wont spoil the surprises.
Buy this game! trust me, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!
