Product Details:

Crime does pay. The hugely successful, highly controversial Grand Theft Auto franchise moves into 3 dimensions in the dark and seedy underworld of Liberty City. With the freedom to go anywhere and jack anyone, Grand Theft Auto 3 puts the dark, intriguing and ruthless world of crime at your fingertips, if you have enough guts to take it.

You've been betrayed and left for dead. Now you're taking revenge, unless the city gets you first. Mob bosses need a favor, crooked cops need help and street gangs want you dead. You'll have to rob, steal and kill just to stay out of serious trouble. Anything can happen out here.

Featuring a fully 3-D living city, a combination of narrative driven and non-linear gameplay and a completely open environment, the game represents a huge leap forward in interactive entertainment. For the first time, players are put at the heart of their very own gangster movie, and let loose in a fully-realised 3 dimensional city, in which anything can happen and probably will.

With a cast of hundreds, 50 plus vehicles, ranging from sports cars to ice cream trucks and from boats to buses, 3 hours of music, including opera, reggae, house, drum and bass, pop and disco, a huge array of street ready weapons and some of the seediest characters in video game history, Grand Theft Auto 3 is a sprawling epic which will show you that sometimes, crime can payand sometimes it can pay you back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An addictive classic and a GTA breakthrough. For those who are fans of the GTA series, it's common knowledge that this third installment, set in the bleak location of Liberty City, astonished gamers as they were immersed in a three-dimensional world filled with compelling, free-roam gameplay. It grabbed the attention of everyone back in 2001 and perpetually rocket launched the rest of series with following installments that improved upon the initial setup of GTA III. The first thing that makes this game stand out is its location; the dark and grimy streets of Liberty City mimic New York City, perhaps taking it to an extreme extent in terms of relaying darkness, violence, and crime through prime examples of making buildings look run-down and having the homeless, poor, and cheaply-clad "working" women frequent the crowd of citizens you pass by. This bleak scenery, which is not as apparent in perhaps Vice City and San Andreas, gives it a sort of rustic charm and plays on the realism of violence in the Mafia-ridden setting. To me, it kind of compares to the grim take on Gotham City that we see in Batman: The Animated Series, which is carried on into its branching line of games including Arkham City, another game notable for its dark tones and overall feel and appearance. While we're on appearance, however, the graphic and sound quality of the game may not astonish you, but keep in mind this game is over a DECADE old. In '01, we'd have given the quality a 10/10. It just pales in comparison now to the advanced quality in graphics we see today. Gameplay, on the other hand, will keep you interested. The missions start off easy like any other game, but soon become increasingly difficult and prove a challenge any gamer will take. The violence that plagues the missions defines the game and fails to bore (you weirdly won't find any repetitiveness in the hundreds of murders you commit throughout the game). Cut-scenes are done remarkably well for their time and are often interesting/humorous; the cast of the game actually includes a few recognizable voices in terms of actors as well. The radio feature also links the player to over 3 hours of music as well as the funny K-Chat station and ludicrous commercials that run between songs on other stations. I would recommend this game easily to anyone, and those tempted to buy the PC version should know it's just as playable and addictive on your computer as it is the PS2.
