Grand Theft Auto is a legendary action game that's famous for being violent and action packed. If you've played the more modern installments, the original will come as a bit of a surprise. If you played the original, Grand Theft Auto (GTA) is about to bring back some serious memories.
Since the original Grand Theft Auto, Rockstar Games has gone from strength to strength, with the GTA series exploding. This partly due to the game's fantastic sandbox approach, giving players an incredible feeling of space and control. The game takes place in three different cities: Liberty City, San Andreas and Vice City and you earn points by causing damage, car sales and cashing in your criminal activities. Anyone who knows their cultural references is also going to enjoy Grand Theft Auto's subtle references to Miami Vice and Scarface.
At first Grand Theft Auto seems a bit superficial. After a while playing, you notice that the game is addictive, with bunches of clever little touches that make it really fun. If you listen to the radio while driving, for example, you'll find 7 radio stations with really professional-sounding - but invented - hits.
Although it looks dated now, Grand Theft Auto is a classic game that you absolutely can not miss.
