Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
5 Star Review  GameZone - Nov 9, 2004

By now you think you’ve heard everything that has been said about the Grand Theft Auto series. You’ve heard about how the last two ground-breaking installments changed the face of video games or--for the most part--how it took us off the beaten path and freed us from a forced linear path. Everything you heard about the series, however, just doesn’t come close to describing the overall grandness that is Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. So allow me to forgo my usual opening introduction and get right to the review of a game that’s a work of lawbreaking brilliance.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (ps2)
5 Star Review  GameSpy - Oct 29, 2004

The only way that Rockstar could have outdone the expansive, liberating experiences that its flagship series is known for is by exponentially increasing their scope and breadth. This is precisely what happened with San Andreas. You're already familiar with the mathematics behind it: three cities, each roughly as large as the previous games' settings, comprising a entire state, as well as an expansive stretch of countryside connecting them. It's huge, and feels like it, and if you're susceptible to fits of fancy, rest assured that you could very easily lose yourself in these enormous, feature-rich environments, 'cause there is a whole lot to do in them. A compelling, convincingly delivered story will keep you interested all the way through, if you chose to pursue it, but like every GTA before it, San Andreas can be just as satisfying if forgo all the narrative stuff, and go buck wild in its environments. But also like its predecessors, the game mechanics can be frustratingly loose at times. I guess that's the cost of implementing so many open-ended systems into one product: no matter how cohesive the result can be, it's going to go haywire at times. Yes, you're going to get frustrated. Probably a lot. But if your experience is anything like mine, you're going to be motivated to soldier on anyway.

GTA: San Andreas, Best PS2 Game Ever?
5 Star Review  about.com - Oct 29, 2004

Let's cut to the chase. Unless you are offended by the mature themes presented in the game, this is one you have to have. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is everything that has ever been promised in videogames. It presents an amazingly detailed, massive world, compelling story, variety of gameplay, great voice overs, and a killer soundtrack. The crazy part is, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is actually fun to play. This game will own you.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (ps2)
5 Star Review  IGN.com - Oct 25, 2004

I'm not going to beat around the bush. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the single best PlayStation 2 title I have ever played. It's larger than the biggest RPG, has more story than the heftiest adventure game, and has almost as many mini-games as Nintendo's Mario Party series. Additionally, it has a production value that's second to none, boasts a faithfulness to its '90s source material with an eerie accuracy, and provides more hours of entertainment than all the previous Grand Theft Autos combined. In short, it's a terrific unending masterpiece of a game -- and one that will never fall victim to an over-exaggeration of its lofty status. It's the defining piece of software for Sony's successful sophomore system, and it's almost impossible to imagine a PlayStation 2 library without it.

Grand Theft Auto game that pushed PS2 to the max
4 Star Review   By member drakula - Dec 29, 2007   

Strengths: Largest environment ever! Massive choices of transportation and weapons. Allow player to customize the character to the liking.

Weakness: Tedious side missions results in long gameplay time.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is one of the PS2 games that push the Playstation 2 hardware to the max with its large environment and massive amounts of transportation and still able to run smoothly. It is probably one of the most accomplished Playstation 2 game ever made. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas offers one of the largest environment ever seen in the Grand Theft Auto games and similar type of games. Reaching the "edge", unless already there, would take some time. The game also offers massive amounts of transportation and weapons that players can choose from, including trains, jets, jet pack, and parachute, which were not available in the previous installments. The player can customize the character to the liking by giving the character accessories like sunglasses, jackets, and hats, or give them tattoos and hairdos. The player can also make the character distinct figure by different stats the character acquires overtime, it would result in a muscular, fat, or skinning character. The tedious side missions results in long gameplay time and are what makes the game from finishing too quickly. The side missions have its own pros and cons, but time consuming is definitely one of the biggest problem. The Greatest Hits version takes care of the biggest controversy with Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Despite of the controversies that it sparked , overall, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is one of the most accomplished Playstation 2 game with its massive choices and customizations, it is what Grand Theft Auto games should be.

Improves on the GTA Series in Every Way
5 Star Review   By member jwong71 - Aug 30, 2007   

Strengths: Gameplay is ginormous in scope. Three cities to play in. Character customization. Skill building. Much improved targeting system. A multitude of side missions / mini games. Great voice acting and 90’s

Weakness: Sketchy graphics. Annoying graphical glitches. Frustrating RC plane side missions. 90’s soundtrack.

This game is the pinnacle of sandbox play for the PS2. There is so much to do in this game that it is difficult to write a review that can capture the enormity. You start out as a 90’s gang member who evolves into something so much more by the end of the game through your travels and adventures in San Andreas, similar to Tommy Vercetti’s rise to power. The game improves on the series in almost every aspect possible. For me, it was the improved targeting system and the ability to better wield a weapon through constant usage. Gameplay is the same as the other GTA games. You can perform the main missions or waste hours doing everything else. What I liked about the game was the ability to customize CJ. Unlike Tommy Vercetti’s wardrobe change, CJ can physically get muscular or fat, which had a material impact on the game. With the size of the landscape and multitude of things to do, it is amazing that the PS2 was able to handle this game so well. Do not be deterred by the gangster lifestyle at the beginning of the game, otherwise you will miss one of the best games for the PS2.

GTA is amazing!
5 Star Review   By member SvR2006 - Aug 4, 2007   

Strengths: The whole god damn game

Weakness: Um, let me think... NONE

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas must be the best PS2, X-Box and PC game of all time. it is the best (if i am wrong, please say) selling game of ALL TIME, and probably cannot be beaten, and if it is, most likely by GTA 5. The graphics, if a bit glitchy at times, are amazing. If you have played any other GTA games then you will be used the graphics by now, so it really doesnt matter. The way Rockstar have split up the 3 areas is truly outstanding. But the thing that most impressed me was how you can play the game. By that i mean you can, and will, play the storyline, but you can just go on a killing spree if you like, or drive around, pretend you work, have a girlfriend, there are so many things you can do. It beats every other great game because it can do what they can do and more (well, almost) I think the only improvment they could make would be to get licenses for the cars, so we could drive around San Andreas in Lamborghinis, Ferraris and maybe even a Reliant Robin!!! Thank-you for reading Written by SvR2006

GTA San Andreas
5 Star Review     

Strengths: HUGE world, great storyline, Best PS2 game ever made

Weakness: How can there be any weaknesses on such a great game

I have never played a game that is so amazing, so addicting, then Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. Being based on Los Angelos (Los Santos) San Francisco (San Feirro) and Las Vegas (Las Venturas) you can tell by the landmarks which city is which that makes it more real. Its like a Driving, Shooting, Platform, RPG all in one game. Last Note: Buy it you wont be dissapointed

5 Star Review   By member MoneeBigz - May 3, 2006   

Strengths: Just about everything.

Weakness: After playing the game for awhile, it might start freezing up and on the screen will appear "error reading the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas disc"!!

This is the best GTA game yet. No, wait... actually the single best game ever made in HISTORY!! The amount of things you can do is endless, and the environment of the game couldn't be better! I wasn't too thrilled about the "Gangsta" theme though, but the overall funness of the game makes up for it. The game contains excessive violence, language, and sexuality, so WATCH OUT! Wouldn't want to fall. The copy of the game I got stopped working about a week after buying it, so unless I get my hands on the game soon, I'll go insane. It's that good!

5 Star Review   By member pokeeto2 - Jan 15, 2006   

Strengths: Honest

Weakness: Can't think of one

My game seem to of came with the original seals and wraps but I find odd that my game didn't come with a manual. It only had the disk and the Map. All other GTA games had maps and a manual. I like having it because it shows all the listings of all the soundtacks and oldies songs of each radio station in the game.

New GTA really good
4 Star Review     

Strengths: The new vehicles like the bycicle are cool and so is the parachute and the city is 10x bigger and better.

Weakness: The graphics are basically the only weakness in this really impressive game.

GTA has been around for years and all of them are great and this is no dissapointment.As I said the graphics are the only letdown in this game.The movie graphics are the best graphics in the game in my opinion.But the weapon system is great with so many weapons.The new gang territory takeover is also a great improvement in the series.Overall this is a great game to get.

5 Star Review     

Strengths: It's really interesting, fun,funny(sarcastic and dry humor), good graphics,and adventurous.

Weakness: Should be more realistic;Also, graphics are the same, incertain situations.For instance, the outside of houses differ from each other, yet the inside has the same layout inside every house.More effort should have been used to create a better game.

I advise people under 18 not to get this game. The game is very gory, and very violent. There is also a lot of sexual content, and offensive language.Use of drugs and alcohol is depicted.If bought for kids under 18, just remember that it is not for kids, and if kids areto play this game, the parents are the one to blame; not the manufacturer. That being said,I, myself,love the game.I would play this game allday, every day, if I could.

Just Amazing
5 Star Review     

Strengths: Good graphics, amazing game play, very realistic life of a gangser, captures the true aspects of a person eg feeding, drinking, girlfriends, haircuts, tatoos etc.

Weakness: There are some lags durinf the game. when travelling at high speed the other vehicles seem to lag. But nothing too serious

An amazing game . Rockstar have definately outdone themselves. the voices are amazing. there is a wide varity of cars, bikes, trucks and 16 wheelers. there are some very extensive missions which help gain respect and help with recruiting gang members etc. there are some cash missions as well. but the genre or the stories are somwat copied from gta 3 and vice city

5 Star Review   By member branboy - Jun 26, 2005   

Strengths: This game has a little bit for every gamer it has shooting, driving, stealth, and very good story elements.

Weakness: The graphics are the only low point but i am still wandering around the huge city that was crammed into this disc so you get what you pay for.

Overall if you were a fan of the first two GTA games on ps2 this game is a must. And if you are new to the GTA series and you are of age this is definately woth checking out becasue of the innovative gameplay and compelling story.

5 Star Review   By member lionheart4life - Jun 20, 2005   

Strengths: Hours and hours of fun gameplay. Great soundtrack. Great storyline. Massive game.

Weakness: Some of the gameplay and missions can get repetitive.

This is one of the most immersive and fun games you will ever play. The landscape of this game is absolutely huge, several times bigger than its predecessors. There are tons of things to do in this game, from randomly fighting, gang wars, missions, taxi driving, firefighting, flying, swimming, BMX riding, this game has it all! If you liked GTA 3 or Vice City, you will love this game. Even if you didn't, this game improves on them in every way. It also has a great early 90's environment, in which you will be able to explore cities replicating Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas, and all the small towns in between. I highly recommend this game to everyone 17 and up.

5 Star Review   By member galvatron2k1 - May 24, 2005   

Strengths: Free-roaming gameplay, great storyline, good controls, diverse soundtrack

Weakness: Graphics look a little dated

One of the best games for any console in 2004, GTA San Andreas tells the story of an ex-drug dealer/gang banger that returns to LA because of the death of the main character's (CJ) mother. What ensues is a free-roaming adventure filled with car-jacking, violence, and drugs. The game draws similarities to Hollywood movies, such as Menace II Society and Boyz 'N the Hood. Another excellent feature of this game is its soundtrack. Divided by radio stations, the soundtrack includes various games of music (hip-hop, rock, heavy metal, R&B, etc.) from the 90's. With an excellent storyline, branching side missions, and free-roaming gameplay, this is one of the best games for the Playstation 2.

Strengths: EVERYTHING

Weakness: NOTHING

This is the best Grand Theft Auto game to come out so far. This game is perfect, you can be a gangster, cruise the streets, or just agitate the cops (Very easy to do). The vehicles range from dirtbikes to private planes. No matter what your into, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas is the game for you.

5 Star Review   By member CrashSpyro123 - Apr 9, 2005   

Strengths: Tons of things to do, great story, fun gameplay, tons of customization, good graphics.

Weakness: Almost too much to do, little bits of slowdown, textures loading slowly when moving fast.

The next iteration of the GTA series arrives and promises much more to do than ever before. With estimates of time to complete every being in the 200 hour range, you'll certainly not have enough to do for most of the game. Many new vehicles, weapons, clothing, hairstyles, and more to customize and make your own. The new environments are ertainly huge with three new cities that easily dwarf Vice City and Liberty City as you can explore the state of San Andreas. I've noticed some small bit of slowdown, though nothing that ruins the game at all. When you're moving very fast via cars, planes, or whatever, you can notice that textures don't load up quick enough as you smash into some invisble wall only to see that it turns into a huge building. These things aside, it's a very fun game that lets you tackle it in any way you want. Make sure to set aside a large chunk or free time for this game, because you'll definitely need it.

5 Star Review   By member mcgavin27 - Mar 18, 2005   

Strengths: Free Form gameplay, great length, more that great GTA gameplay.

Weakness: graphics, load times

This is just the best gta ever. If you have never played a grand theft auto game before you don't know wait you are missing. The gta formula lets you do anything at any time and everything form Jak 2 to ssx3 has copied this formula. San andreas involves california in the early 90's. You even have real music to cruise to. Just buy it, and say good bye to everyone you know until you finish it, it is THAT GOOD!!!

4 Star Review   By member flaprabbit - Mar 7, 2005   

Strengths: Great voice actors that this game has, James Woods, Samuel L Jackson, Chris Penn, and Ice T.

Weakness: The graphics, while certainly aren’t horrible, look pretty poor. This is probably due to the fact that Playstation 2 can't perform great Anti-Analising. The framerate is absolutely horrible.

The outstanding gameplay and audio features more than make up for the mediocre graphics and story. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a game that you will more than likely enjoy and be addicted to even if you only play for ten minutes. The graphical problems are still present but are not as bad, so they don't detract from the experience enough to make them a problem. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas is a game that is instantly a timeless classic, and probably will not be surpassed by any other game coming out this year.

5 Star Review   By member shaggyucla - Mar 5, 2005   

Strengths: WoW! Thats all i can say. This game has it all, basketball playing, haveing gang member join your cause, various weapons and missions. One of the best RPGs ever.

Weakness: Can get a little old doing hard missions over and over and... Also the missions are a little repetetive.

Another great rockstar game! I am very impressed with the graphics (even on my 62 inch tv). More RPG like than the predecessors, you can nearly go anywhere on the city. You can improve your skillz in weaponry, girl friends, working out, what more would you want. Like the fact that you can have your own turf, and have to protect it with your homies, which you can drive with in your car. Hydrolics in the car is sick.

4 Star Review   By member AMurderOfCrows - Feb 25, 2005   

Strengths: expansive game.....the city map is just huge and well done. play control is tight, what you'd expect from one of the biggest names in video games

Weakness: The genere is getting old...

Another quality game from Rockstar....but the GTA series needs a bit of a shakeup after this game. The graphics have only slightly improved since the last game. THe play control is very tight and polished, though i found i'm too used to the analog style of control for driving games personally. The entire genre feels like it's getting old....not entirely sure if i'd buy the next one in the series, but this game, despite some minor annoyances, is a definete keeper

5 Star Review   By member dtsai24 - Feb 24, 2005   

Strengths: Everything

Weakness: Graphics

This is one of the best games for ps2. It improves by adding numerous things to the previous versions of GTA. The game is so long and the state is so large that it will take you around a hundred hours to beat it. It's well worth the money.

5 Star Review   By member bluster125 - Feb 4, 2005   

Strengths: Great graphics. Very user-friendly. Fun to play.

Weakness: None.

I got this as X'mas gift for my son. I ended up being hooked on it too. Graphics are mind-boggling. The action is super packed. Although there's a significant amount of violence, it is very entertaining to a mature person who understands this is just a game -- nothing more. This game provides lots of hours of fun. Well worth the price that I paid for it. Made at least two people very happy!

5 Star Review   By member chrisofsteel - Feb 3, 2005   

Strengths: You can swim!!

Weakness: None that I have found.

This games blows GTA: Vice City away. There are three huge cities to explore plus a roaming countryside. There are numerous, different planes, which fly much better than older versions and parachutes for bailing out. This game is loaded with extras, more mini-games, including a BMX biking challenge. Overall this games is well worth the time and money.

5 Star Review   By member mrtwo - Jan 21, 2005   

Strengths: Go anywhere do anything play. (after you complete many missions)

Weakness: Couple of odd bugs although nothing serious

I have been playing this game from day 1 and recently decided on purchasing it (along with several other games I like). This game has been great fun. Some missions more challenging than others but all very completable. I have had a great deal of difficulty with the last mission and must admit I had to use my Action Replay Max Evo to finish the level. I do believe I could have finished it on my own with enough patience, but it is a bit of a long level and starting over was getting to be a chore. Regardless of the last level, I have enjoyed MANY hours just flying around trying to dodge jets flying the “harrier like” jet. This game offers great replay value and is fun almost infinitely. I highly recommend this game to any mature adult who can deal with the violent content. It is really a great game.

3 Star Review   By member greeser - Dec 29, 2004   

Strengths: The 30 year old man I purchsed it from finds it very exciting

Weakness: I think it is very immoral

I do not understand a company that makes such criminal things and call them games. I would not have purchased it had I known the content. How about something that would be a positive influence.

5 Star Review   By member LinJP45 - Dec 23, 2004   

Strengths: Great action and graphics.

Weakness: There are none that I can see.

I purchased this game for my 17 year old son. He had rented it and loved it. It was cheaper to purchase it then to rent it over and over. He has the other Grand Theft Auto games and says this is the best one yet. He can't wait to see what they'll come up with next.

5 Star Review   By member Psyber14 - Dec 17, 2004   

Strengths: Swimming and climbing are new, sound track is awesome. You can have girlfriends in the game.

Weakness: The flying is really hard to pass. A tip: don't forget to raise your landing gear. I don't think the auto targeting is as good as Vice City. But the game is still way bigger and better.

If you liked Vice City you'll like this game. Its way bigger with three cities. If you thought Vice City was a challenge be prepared to be challenged even more. Worth the money!

4 Star Review   By member merwynp - Dec 7, 2004   

Strengths: Latest installment GTA series is a great game with a bigger city to move about. It is similar to SIMS b/c you now have to feed the guy.

Weakness: I do not like the part of the game were you have to feed teh guy to give him energy, this is not a SIMS game.

Overall I like the game a lot. You have a bigger city to move about in. Now you can ride bicycles and a lot of other vehicles. You can also go into a lot of building now. The only thing I do not like about this game is the fact that you have to feed him to give him strenght and he has to work out to get stronger. This is making the game similar to SIMS which I do not like
