    If you’re an action gamer like me you will probably play every last penny of this AWESOME game!

    The perfect gaming experience. Anyone who doesn't like it is a pansy wuss who needs sense beating into them with a baseball bat, and that's a fact. Capiche?
  3. A stunning, involving experience that, though not for everyone, will appeal to both the gamer looking for a long, structured action/adventure game and the one looking for loosely organized chaos.

    One of the very best things about this game is its almost total lack of any visible interface. [July 2002, p.56]
  5. 90
    What started out as a 10-minute compatibility check turned into an all-night rampage, after I got past all the bugs that is.
  6. The number of different ways you can play GTA III is astonishing.
  7. 80
    As shocking, unsettling, and addictively compelling as a viewing of HBO's "The Sopranos." It's just that brilliant of a game. Capiche?

    I first played it on PS2 and couldn't get enough. When I saw it on PC, me being a PC gamer, I *bought* it without hesitation. At first, I first played it on PS2 and couldn't get enough. When I saw it on PC, me being a PC gamer, I *bought* it without hesitation. At first, I was sorta flustered about the lock-on system, or, rather, lack thereof, but after a while, I came to find the aiming system was far better. Rockstar made the right move. And with the option of skins, mods, and the very cool mp3 radio station, it makes the PC version better than even its PS2 counter-part. Expand

    I really loved the transition to 3d after playing some the previous GTA II. I spend countless hours just messing around the game world.

    The cars are fragile the slightest touch even with pedestrians and the car gets severe damage and some cars flip around on the slightest turnThe cars are fragile the slightest touch even with pedestrians and the car gets severe damage and some cars flip around on the slightest turn get on fire and blow up, aiming with weapons is the most ridiculous thing here the accuracy and shooting range is almost non existante except for sniper, you have to be close to the enemy and try your luck aiming blindly or use M16 and zoom then try to shoot one or two bullet and see if they get hit, rocket launcher has a low range and the AK-47 is useless it does little damage to enemies if you manage to hit them and slight damage to cars compared to the M16 that can blow up cars and trucks with a single magazine. When finishing a mission and you're on your way home to save it happens that some mad guys will shoot at your car with a single bullet and set it on fire leaving you on a empty street with no car around and you end up in hospital losing all weapons also all weapons i had get vanished on the last mission, no map plan view some roads access in the airport region are not that clear on the round map with some misleading target points.
    The weather effects are beautiful and changes in real time.

    Return the game to Steam!
    I loved this part with all my heart and soul, but you just take Rockstar and take it out of the store. I absolutely don't care about your remaster! How do you even know if my computer will pull this new trilogy (no)?! The third part was and remains one of my favorite parts of GTA, but you spoil that too! (appeal to Rockstar)
    My personal rating of the game is 10/10
    But until the game returns to the store, I can only put 0
