    This game was the beginning for a great saga, I had been expended several hours in this game on my childhood. For the one who didn't play this game yet, believe me, you have to!.
    You can feel the same game mechanic, the spirit is there.

    This game really reminds you just how far the series has come! GTA III was the major milestone for the franchise (and possibly my favourite of the lot) but I’d forgotten how aggravating this bird’s eye 2D stuff was from the originals… Constantly getting stuck under bridges and arches because you can’t see your character, crashing into every vehicle in sight and of course not being able toThis game really reminds you just how far the series has come!

    Answer the phone, drive, run over people, steal cabs, kill cops, sell said stolen cabs. Repeat.
    15 years and half a dozen games later, this game still manages to entertain the player.

    Grand Theft Auto... This is one of the most bizarre games I have ever played. It is neither good or bad. The gameplay is very straight-forward and simple, but it lacks even the most basic of a story line, it just throws you into the game, to kill cops, innocent people, and steal cars, among other things. I do enjoy the fact that the game is so basic, no strange shooting mechanics, noGrand Theft Auto... This is one of the most bizarre games I have ever played. It is neither good or bad.

Its worth a play, but be ready for the strangest experience in gaming. Collapse

    This awesome game was mindblowing when it first came out. You could walk around killing people.... AND drive cars. WOW. Micromachines was a fun game but this is like micromachines where you can get out and blow up a cop car with a rocket launcher. The radio stations were the awesome homemade stuff that you got until Vice City came along. The humour was the best of all the GTA's in myThis awesome game was mindblowing when it first came out. You could walk around killing people.... AND drive cars. WOW. Micromachines was a fun game but this is like micromachines where you can get out and blow up a cop car with a rocket launcher. The radio stations were the awesome homemade stuff that you got until Vice City came along. The humour was the best of all the GTA's in my opinion. Just straight up rudeness with none of the social commentary of later games. The gameplay was so much fun.. In GTAIV you can jump your car and flip it around in 3D and get stats on how far you jumped and bla bla bla.. that is NOWHERE NEAR as fun as jumping that broken bridge with the cones on it in a crap car in GTA1 was, knowing that if you did it slightly wrong you WOULD be instantly wasted.The missions were cool, and you got liberty city, vice city, and san andreas all in one game. God remember how much fun getting the tank was. Or finding a kill frenzy, or achieving your first gouranga.. now that's an actual achievement. The graphics.. well in hindsight the graphics sucked but when this game came out they were not a problem, you were looking at something completely new so they were setting a benchmark for the genre. An easily defeatable one, but who was to know. So if you are some kid that is considering paying for this on steam you should be prepared for that.. coz teh grafix r retrded. And maybe the gameplay is outdated for you. I'm rating it based on how I enjoyed it when I was a kid, definitely gets a 10 and makes skyrim seem as fun as peeling a potato. Expand
