Grand Theft Auto - GTA comes alive,
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto III (PC) (Video Game)
I did not even bother playing the other two as when I saw how they were done I was not inclined to deal with the 'helicopter' overhead view (GTA 1 and 2).
However GTA 3 is something different. You really feel you are there - the gameplay is brilliant, the action is non stop. Some of the missions are 'easy' but it's whole 'freeworld' nature i.e you can take on missions or just wander around causing trouble which make it a great experience.
You can even decide to take on law enforcement where you begin with taking out the cops, then the FBI arrive, then the SWAT team with hellicoptors coming in on the act, take all of these out and then they send the army in after you with tanks which will blow you off the road.
Great game - forget GTA 1 and 2 and get this.
