5 Star Review   By member antucd123 - Jul 2, 2010   

Strengths: Everything

Weakness: Game could freeze up and be buggy

Haha, I remember this game .. I remember when all the politicians protested so much against this game, they made me want to play it so much more. When I finally got to play it at the young age of 15 (great job, again, politicians!) I was blown away by the graphics, the large environments, and the almost humanitarian things that I could do - such as rescuing people with a stolen ambulance van. This is a game that I would honestly play all the way through again if I still had my PS2 and lots of time on my hands. Great buy

Strengths: Should I name them all?

Weakness: More vehicles

I think that gta3 is the best action game there is. It has a variety of weapons and it is fun fighting and killing people. You have to go get it.

5 Star Review   By member DillDoe - Aug 15, 2002   

Strengths: Very open-ended, nice cars, very interactive world.

Weakness: Sometimes there's a graphics glitch, can get nerve-racking and send you smashing things when you mess up.

This game is really great. I really didn't like the first 2 GTAs, very boring with a horrible view, but nice concept. I always dreamed of an actual 3D GTA2 instead of 2D and this does just that.. but improves upon the game a lot. In the first game stealing a cool car had no real meaning.. the car looked bad, etc. This game really does a top-class job of giving you a good feeling about stealing a Banshee, which is an awesome sports car. It goes fast, the hookers flock to it, and things like that. The only two problems with this game would be that sometimes the graphics will give out and give you a bluish-type coloration to the road and it will fix itself almost immediately, nothing major. The other thing is sometimes the missions are really fast-paced and rather nerve-racking. I hated the missions where you have to get Ray to the airport in like 3 minutes thru the traffic of a tight tunnel. This game is a must-buy, go out and get it!

Strengths: This game is hot man, flame grilled super hot. I especially enjoyed seeing "sweeney general hospital"

Weakness: There was no coon alley. Whats with that? Where are the superbikes?

Excellent game. bloody brilliant! credit ot take 2 and rockstar! i think the only way to improve this game is to incorporate a 2 player mode or at least letting you shoot while your in the car. ANyway for more reviews check www.bummingaround.iwarp.com

5 Star Review   By member ReviewReviewer - Apr 6, 2002   

Strengths: to many to name

Weakness: not enough pedestrian types, not enough hooker types, and not having the ability to choose your own color in the One-Stop Autoshop

This was a great game. I like the cars, the things pedestrians say, the overall gameplay, the shooting and screaming, the kill gang members over and over until your gang member kills go over your pedestrians killed. GREAT GAME

5 Star Review   By member DoleisN1 - Apr 3, 2002   

Strengths: Great Game Play, as a programmer I am very proud of the job done as to comprehensive freedoms.

Weakness: Needs more pedestrian types. And they could have given you a chance to swim when you fall in the water.

I recomend this game to EVERYONE(14+ yrs of age), and anything I don't mention here I loved too. They need to address the ability to always run from burning cars, more pedestrian types, and no swimming. They shouldn't make a new GTA4, but make addons making it harder and harder, with more and more cars,wh*res,guns,pedestrians, and cop AI. The cop AI is a little weak but i think it may be intentionally so, as it is fairly entertaing to slam into a cop and one time he'll do NOTHING but the next he will, bust you(or try anyway). They need to add more realism as to a cops vision, you can kill a pedestrian(something a cop will ALWAYS bust you for, when they see it) and a cop around the corner will see. Which tells me it is proximity check not line of sight. Outside of these complaints the game is GREAT!!! And the good easily overshadows these bad things which should tell ya something, well anyway happy killing sprees!

Strengths: Absolutely NONE

Weakness: How much time have ya got?

Well, im sorry... but removing the "prosties" was a big mistake.... the lovely killing, smashing, crashing and maiming, all seems worthless if at the end of the day, you can't retire into the care of a nice young wh**re and crank your health..

Strengths: This is the best game ever made!!!!! Everyone go buy this!

Weakness: NONE this is the best game ever!! I am looking forward to GTA 4. Not like you need it. This is the ultimate game.

Go buy this game because it rules. This is a awesome game. the missions are detailed. cars,people,guns,everything. it is challenging though. but it is well worth the $55 i paid for it.

5 Star Review   By member bbz - Feb 1, 2002   

Strengths: incredibly immersive gameplay, car physics are fantastic, graphics adequate, cop behavior very entertaining

Weakness: controls for running and shooting are poor (driving controls are good though), not enough types of pedestrians

this game is NOT recommended for children. this is one of the greatest games. you can do the missions or better yet, ignore them and go search the city--learn the shortcuts, find the hidden packages, jump the stunts, do the rampages. the violence can be intense if want, since you can choose your level of destruction--drive on the road like normal or choose the sidewalk and see whether pedestrians tends to go under or over your car. you can go crazy at any time and take a few people out for kicks. the missions progress the game--opening up new areas so you have something to look forward to.

5 Star Review   By member Drloveless21 - Jan 12, 2002   

Strengths: Driving skills, First person shooting.

Weakness: Evading Cops

Although this game is not for a younger audience, it will certainly intrigue the older players. With many types of missions from the regular story mode to vigilante missions this game has it all. It's a perfect blend of both role playing and racing games. Think of all the things your morals and the law prevent you from doing, and those are the things you'll need to do to win this game. You even have to bag a few hookers to regain your health. By far my favorite game ever.

5 Star Review   By member dwood1999 - Jan 9, 2002   

Strengths: Good game play, great escape

Weakness: Violent, criminal content

This game is not for young people, it has hookers, drug dealers, fast cars, bats to beat people with, carnage!! Lots of fun to become a crook, car-jack people, shoot people, buy a prostitute services, etc... I even think that this game is banned in some countries. One of the more interesting games that blend many genre of games into one. If the subject matter doesn't turn you off then you'll love playing this game.

5 Star Review   By member mycanon - Jan 5, 2002   

Strengths: GRAPHICS, SOUND, CONTROL, FUN FACTOR, FREEDOM, and GRAPHICS (i know I put "Graphics" twice, but that's because they are GREAT!)

This game is GREAT...I would recommend purchasing it, I enjoyed it very much....and I still do. I will never get tired of this game....it's got over 70 missions (all very fun and challenging) . Lots of different types of cars....you can get cars with Hydraulics and bounce up so high you can flip the car. Tons of different weapons, good pay for your services (missions). You can drive a boat, and fly an airplane, (just get a gameshark 2 for PS2 because it will help you a lot). I love this game. It is awesome, I love it. Just BUY IT! it has everything....you have a ton of freedom, you can go almost anywhere, the freedom is excuisite. EVERYTHING IS. GO BUY THIS GAME! It is PERFECT! No issues, nothing wrong with it at all....unless your disk is scratched up which most games don't work right with tons of scratches!
