Grand Theft Auto 3 lets you explore the fully realised universe that is Liberty City, and complete gangland missions. You can steal any car you see, from sports cars to taxis, and even boats. There are over a dozen ways to take out other characters, including fist-fighting, baseball bat, handgun, Uzi, rocket launcher, and Molotov cocktail. The game world has unpredictable weather, a variety of pedestrian types who act in unique ways, changing times of day and night, and a multi-tiered, fully corrupt police force. The revenge plot offers strong story elements that are balanced with the game's non-linear freedom-of-movement.

The game that practically started the 3D sandbox genre.

Well detailed and full of life at the time of it's release, the game was a hard, blood-soaked romp through a pseudo-New York City at a time where America and much of the world was experiencing untold Paranoia and Anger the likes of which the world hadn't seen since the cold war.

Reception from gamers was staggeringly positive and the negative response from rights-groups, politicians, parents and big-brother alike was out of this world.

GTAIII officially kicked off the GTA series as a best-seller with new methods of gameplay and atmosphere not many folks had seen before and a level of exploration that kept players glued to their controllers and PC's for hours on end.

But has it aged well?

After playing the previous games, coming back to GTAIII was a punch to the gut. I simply forgot how hard the game was and how wonky the car physics were!

And while the game offers a lot to do, the player is given buckets of money with not a whole lot to spend it on.

These little cons don't change that fact the game is a blast, even though most players today will be begging for a break from the hard difficulty and the wonky physics can ruin a mission at the last minute and incite rage in the most hardened GTA fans.

One hell of a blast down memory lane!

I am always like GTA series. :P

Yeah not bad but it doesn't have that much ease of editing.

Well, ┬┐what i can say of the grandfather of the Sandbox genre in 3d?. was very impresive to me see than the map was more bigger than the sucesor Vice City. Maybe because Vice City has bikes, helicopters and others vehicles than make tha map tiny in comparation.

Very good game back then.
So realistic graphics(i don't jk)still looks good compared to others.
Still good soundtrack and sounds.Realistic radios play all time but are looped to some point.
Sounds effect's are good as voice-cast of main characters.
Shooting,driving,atmosphere are very well done.
Car psychics aren't so realistic but are so-so.
Vehicles have pretty designs(Sentinel and Cheetah) where others are ugly (Manana or Perennial).
Almost every vehicle in game is based on something in real world.
Weapons aren't too balanced.Shotgun is insta-kill where pistol is only to make crowd running.
Overpowered M16 with funny sound is deadly in close and long combat.
Also you can run with UZI or Pistol,but you can't with baseball bat.
Peds are losing parts of they(you can shoot out hand,leg,head etc.).
Missions are also interesting and non-replayed.
You do everything! Yes everything you want.
Overall
9/10

Excellent and classic. Pretty much defined a new age in 3D 3rd-person games.

My most favourite game ever.I will never get bored of it.Even now 12 years after its release I still play it and enjoy it.

GTA 3, the game that took the GTA series to another level.
Claude the strong silent protagonist. Gets betrayed and is on a mission for revenge, and in the end he even gets the girl.

GTA 3 is a fun and satisfying game.
Some of the missions get frustrating and you have to do them multiple times but when you beat each mission and then the entire game without using cheats, thats a good feeling.

There is something i didnt like though, there is only one main mission on the 3rd island Shoreside Vale, a little disapointing.

love love love claude speed best player ever its nice to have a player who don't talk and its a great game
