Grand Theft Auto III

Grand Theft Auto III is the third game in the Grand Theft Auto series. GTA3 takes place on the streets of Liberty City, Staunton Island, and Shoreside Vale, where you're looking for revenge against your double-crossing bank-robbing buddies.


One player, eight unnamed savegame slots, requires 500K, vibration, analog and pressure-sensitive control.

Supports widescreen TVs by limiting the height of the screen (same width, not as tall).

Includes a map/poster to help you find your way around.

Rated M for violence, blood, and strong language.


You start the game escaping from a prisoner transfer after being shot and left for dead by one of your partners in a bank robbery. From there you crawl your way to the top of the criminal underworld exacting your revenge with a variety of weapons and vehicles.

GTA3 is a very open-ended RPG. You can use a variety of weapons (pistol, uzi, shotgun, AK-47, M16, sniper rifle, rocket launcher, flame thrower, hand grenades and molotov cocktails) and vehicles (sedans, sports cars, busses, trucks and tanks). Missions are varied, involving racing, timed missions, assassination, and assaults. How you accomplish these missions is left up to you. In between missions you can scout around for hidden packages, perform rampages, or just drive around and run people over.

You can also become a vigilante, firefighter, ambulance driver or taxi driver, which will earn you extra cash and power-ups at your hideout.

The vehicles in the game all have unique handling, and are modeled fairly well. After a little practice, you'll be sliding around corners and dodging oncoming cars with ease.

This is definetly a great game, and I recommend it to anyone who can tell the difference between reality and fantasy.
