Grand Theft Auto San Andreas set new standards for modern sandbox gaming. You start out as Carl Johnson (CJ), a guy who is returning to Los Santos after a few years away. His return, however, is far from a happy reunion, and he comes home to find his mother murdered and his former gang, the Grove Street Family, a shadow of its past glory. Not long after living in Los Santos, Carl finds himself being extorted by two dangerously crooked cops.
Immersion in San Andreas
Grand Theft Auto has always been known for its fully immersive worlds. You have over eight radio stations, and San Andreas will take you through the worlds of more than eight different gangs. The game has what were fresh and innovative features for its time like allowing you to recruit gang members to your missions. After they are recruited, you can take up to seven different members into battle with you. However, the number you take with you will depend on how much respect CJ has gotten. Throughout the game, you have new opportunities to build up your skills and qualities like swimming, fat, stamina, lung capacity, driving skill, flying skill and muscle.
Tons of Missions
San Andreas will take you through over 100 missions in total. Rockstar Games never does anything without going all out, and it can take between 20 hours to 30 hours of gameplay before you complete all the missions. As you progress through the levels, you will access new states of San Andreas like San Fierro and Las Venturas. You start the game in Los Santos, and you will slowly move through the states as you progress in the game. What's new and interesting about San Andreas is how Rockstar Games also incorporated some of the more rural parts of Los Angeles. For example, you have Red County, which is inspired by Orange County. The game has a rich diversity of both the missions and the areas in which you run them. You will never feel like you have done the same mission twice.
Many Opportunities for Mayhem
Throughout the game, you will have apt opportunities to cause mischief and mayhem. This feature of the game increases its gameplay longevity. In fact, while the missions can take you over 30 hours to complete, it's not surprising that people have clocked in more than 200 hours of gameplay on San Andreas. For example, you can wander around in competition with your friends to see who can get the most police stars.
The game is well-made, and it has a rich and diverse style of gameplay. If you've never played a Grand Theft Auto game, you owe it to yourself to try it out.
