5.0 out of 5 stars Where it all started for me., 16 April 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto III (PC) (Video Game)
This is where it all started for me, ten years ago !

I know it's not the first game in the series but this is the first game that truly blew me away. This opened up a whole new world of gaming to me, I was stuck in a football and racing game rut before this gem came along. Back then it was Playstation 2 all the way for me, oh how time's have changed.

I bought GTA III and Vice City for the PC as I would like something to play on my laptop when I am away from home. I was a little unsure at first because I don't have a particularly powerful laptop. There was never any question of the quality of this game, just the power under my fingertips. Since receiving the game, it installed in minutes and runs very nicely. I do have to run the draw distance a little low but that doesn't take anything away from the gameplay.

Let me just give you the spec that I am running so that you can make an informed decision if you're unsure about buying. I've got an Athlon II Dual Core 2.1GB processor, 4GB Ram(Memory), 64-Bit Operating System, ATI Mobility Radeon HD4200 graphics chip and I'm running Windows 7. If you have anything near this spec or better then you'll be sitting pretty.

I was expecting the game to look very dated by now, it's been many years since I've been to these parts. I'm happy to say that the game has held up very well indeed. Yes the graphics are a little dated but the gameplay remains intact and the experience is still thrilling as you go about your seedy business ! If you're a fan of the series or you've just not played this title, you need to give it a spin.

Just as an F.Y.I, GTA: Vice City also runs very nicely. Same rule as before, just turn the draw distance down and you're set.

I hope this review is helpful to anyone who's a little unsure of their PC's performance, if you have any questions please leave a comment.

Go on, buy it, you know you want to !!!
