4.0 out of 5 stars The first slice of (3D) sociapathic mayhem..., 3 Aug 2007

= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto III (PC) (Video Game)
GTA 3 shows a lot of rough edges when compared to Vice City and especially San Andreas, but since it was the first outing and there seemed to be hidden links between this first one and San Andreas (it felt like I was supposed to know some people i.e. Salvatore), that I decided to get it.

It feels like Rockstar dipping its toes into new waters, with some features (such as the radio) not quite yet fully developed, or the imagination behind mission structures. It may be a case of do this, take that, kill the other, but you can still be as subtle or as devastating as you want to be within your imagination. From this point, you could also see that it wouldn't take much to take the whole game and turn it into a RPG (see Fable) or into a Deus Ex 3rd person wannabe (see Just Cause). It's just that Rockstar got there first. They let the media furore blow over and then made another two that took care of the glaring faults, but above all - even though it requires a bit of luck sometimes - it's still fun.
