Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas User Reviews
Range of weapons
completely customisable character, clothes, hair, tattoos etc
loads of cars
loads of diverse and enjoyable missions
excellent sound track
excellent voice acting
loads of humour
will take ages to complete
Some annoying glitches, i.e, stops you from working out in the gym after a certain amount of time.
Game can seem too big at times and overwhelming
The whole hip hop gangsta theme is not everybody's cup of tea and it's hard to escape from that in the story missions.
Sometime the fade-in of objects is too slow, especially noticeable when driving at speed.
This game is brilliant. The map is breathtaking. There is so much to do. It would literally take weeks of playing to complete everything in this game and see everything it has to offer.
This game has something for everyone, although it's not for kids!
Just some of the great features include:
The ability to take over gang territories,
some excellent new vehicles,
no loading screens when moving around the city,
Some of the new features are not that great though, for example the eating feature. It's really annoying having to stop playing just to go and find a fast food restaurant and eat a few meal...

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the PS2 is simply the best game I have ever played on the PS2. Everything about it is superb and nicely done. Mainly everything is good in this game, with the odd couple of exceptions. Glitches are, I am sorry to say, at its worst. It can cause a major problem during storyline missions and I being a person who hates glitches, was very annoyed. Graphics are not bad, but they could have been improved.
You won't take any notice of the graphics that much, though, because the gameplay is just spectacular. You can (deep breath): skydive, fly a plane, drive over 7...
- HUGE map: this map is absolutely HUGE. Even if you finish the game, you will still have at least one area that you have not fully been to/covered.
- Weapons: these weapons are total badasses, there are lots of them - and to name a few are: Silenced Pistol, AK-47, M4, knifes and katanas, Tec 9, Rocket Launcher and even a Minigun.
- You can mod your vehicles - that's right, you can now mod your ride and put in various paintjobs, nitro and many more things.
- Vehicles: these vehicles are amazing. There are lots of them, with there own style.
- No long load times between each island.
- A great 90's soundtrack which will keep entertained.
- Clothing: unlike previous GTA games, you can now wear WHATEVER you want and select from a wide range of clothing.
- Storyline: the storyline is very interesting as well as most of the other characters whom you meet.
- New features are built in like swimming, parachuting and much much more.
- A hell of a lot of easter eggs (so you won't get bored after you beat the game.)
- The graphics are a bit of a letdown.
- Glitches are at their worst.
Well, in my opinion, I think that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the one of the best games I have ever played in my life. There are lots of new features added and tons more stuff to do. The missions are great, challenging but fun and leads a very interesting storyline with some surprises along the way. You will be able to meet previous characters from the past GTA games and you even get to race with one of them - but I am not telling who! Also, the map is humongous, with lots of land, sea and air to explore. You will never get tired of travelling, whether it is in the desert with your Mon...
Huge environment, lots of extras. Good story line.The bad:
Bad traffic glitches. Bad aiming system.Summary:
You play as Carl Johnson, going back to the hood for your mothers funeral. As you try to avoid getting back into criminal life, too many problems show up. You do a lot of missions, and move from Los Santos to San Fierro. Then to Los Venturas. The environments are pretty good. You'll find yourself just driving around at 100mph for the fun of it. The aiming system is a lock on aim. So you get instant shots at people. I would have liked to see manual aiming, or at least a switch from auto aim to manual aimer option. You have many little extras to keep you entertained. You can go to the gym and...
Completely detailed customization, tons of weapons, good targeting system, a nice 90's soundtrack featuring over 100 songs, the list goes on and on...The bad:
Street Racing missions suck on this game.Summary:
This game has caught a lot of attention from the media. The explicit f-word language, the strip clubs, prostitution, brutal violence, drug usage, bad cops, and innapropriate/dark humor. But, despite all the controversy, this game is EXCELLENT. Where do I begin? It's like having your own gangsta virtual pet. You can dress him up, feed him, work out, and recruit your own gang members. The weapon system is incredible. The soundtrack is superb. Newer weapons make for more brutal deaths. Good graphics. Huge cities. Get a girlfriend, take her on dates, and HAVE YOUR WAY WITH HER. Steal cars, truc...
Where do I start? This game is probably the greatest I have played in my video gaming life. Lets start of with the variety of things to do. The game play and free roam. It has everything in it. From base jumping to exploring, from transport to side-missions... it's all in here. Most people (including me) still play Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, even though we have had it since it came out. This just proves that we cannot get enough of this superb game. You will not be bored of this game as it has anything you can imagine. When I first opened up the map, I was in brilliant awe when I realized the sheer size of it. I guessed that each city would be the size of Vice City altogether, so I was fascinated by the game although I had just opened the cover. Also, the lasting appeal is incredible, I've STILL not completed the whole game 100% and I have had it for a long time. This game is enough to keep you going through your gaming YEARS. The side-missions are packed with lots of fun things to do, there are also stadium events, where you compete in challenges etc. The story mode is also super, with lots of twists and turns and a great ending. But that's not even half the game. You've still got collectibles as well, which will keep you going for quite a while. Then you can go on an exploration for easter eggs, which I love, but be sure to take your CAMERA to take some pictures of them! Also, the transport is astonishing. A new variety of transport can be available including military jets, fast cars, boats and the introduction of the BMX and Mountain Bike. You'll never get bored of the transport of this game. Some vehicles have weapons attached, like the Hydra which shoots out missiles. The weapons in the game are phenomenal. You can now raise your weapon skill to the max and the more weapon skill, the better. A wide range of weapons including a Minigun, Dessert Eagle, AK47 and M4's and even little environmental ones like spray paint, baseball bat, chainsaw, knife and even a *bleep*! San Andreas has a great selection of clothing and accessories. I laughed out loud at the crazy haircuts the main character, CJ, could have. Also, I was amazed at the tattoos and most of all, the clothing. There are shops scattered around San Andreas, from the cheap Binco to the highly expensive designer wear, Didier Sachs. Rockstar also introduced RPG elements to the game. So now, the main character can eat, build up muscle and stamina, have *bleep* appeal for your girlfriends and the main one - respect. CJ can also SWIM, which is also new to GTA gaming. Last but not least, the soundtrack is great. There are plenty of radio stations to choose from, including country music, hip-hop, modern rock, the chat show WCTR and many more.The bad:
There are only a few bad aspects to the game. The graphics could of been done with a little room for improvement. They ARE very good, I must say, but if Rockstar spent a little bit of time on this then it would of been most definitely perfect. The glitches are very big in this game, it can happen a lot which is rather disappointing to me. Some of you may like seeing glitches, but I do not.Summary:
Well, I could tell you heaps and heaps of things to do with San Andreas but now, YOU take it from here and buy this absolutely extraordinary game that Rockstar have created. YOU explore the different paths in San Andreas, discover and most of all, enjoy it. As my review title says, this is Probably One of the Greatest Games Yet. I'd give it a 9/10. I rarely give anything a 9 or 10 out of ten, mostly an 8. But I just HAD TO give this a 9, as it is truly an amazing game. If it wasn't for the two bad points then I would of given it a straight 10. But still, 9 is just as good, so I want you...
