How similar?


There's The Saboteur
Saints Row 2
Just Cause 2


That's it really as far as I know.

Don't overlook the original Saint's Row, either. It may not be as jam-packed with features as SR2, but the game is damned good, and can be had dirt cheap. Also, Crackdown is supposed to be very good, and Crackdown 2 is coming out this summer. Believe it or not JAK 2 and JAK 3 are very GTA'ish and sandboxes, though in the JAK games, you steal hover cars not cars with wheels lol.

Edit: Sorry! I forgot this was The Genital PS3 forum for a sec. Forget the original Crackdown and SR!

Sure, there's:


Yakuza 3(you can't drive but it has plenty of activities)
Episodes From Liberty City(Basically an expansion pack, the disc edition features both games on one disk) - Here's the site.
Simpson's Hit & Run - Nice game in my opinion.
Red Dead Redemption(Releases May 18)


That's all I could think of at the moment but I'm sure you could find plenty of sites that state GTA-related games on that secret little site called.... Google.

Oh, Lord! The Simpson's: Hit and Run!

I played about 20% of that game and gave it up out of sheer boredom. Technically, though, it is the GTA of The Simpsons.

Lol, I played it when I was like 10. I remember I sold it 'cause I didn't have a memory card back then and as you can guess didn't want to go through it over and over again. Brings back so many good memories though.


Also Luke, I forgot to mention Yakuza 1, 2, and Mafia. Mafia 2 is coming out August 24th.


Edit - The Godfather 1 & 2.

3 more...

Infamous, Prototype & Assassins Creed 2.

Infamous is awesome. Can't wait for Infamous 2.
Prototype sucked.
Assassins Creed 2 is a great sandbox game too.

I don't know Mnm, I think he's looking for the crazy, "Car stealing, hooker beating, gun totin'," over the top gameplay. Still, they're all good games Luke and sandbox so I guess you should look into 'em.

Simpsons Hit and Run is a PS2 game and he specifically asked for PS3 games.

I 100%'d it! I loved that game!

As for GTA-like games, I've played both of The Godfather games and they're both well worth playing. Very similar formula to GTA.

lol I actually have that as an XBox game. Maybe I should pop in in just for laughs and to see if I can get into it even though I couldn't a few years back.

I beat Simpsons: H&R, but never 100%'d it.

@OP: We'd be able to give you better options if you gave us more details. By "games like GTA", do you mean any open-world game or a game with car-jacking and shooting in it?
