Unlike the other people who give definitions for this game, who give wrong information or none at all, this is what its about. You play Carl Johnson(CJ), who returns to the state of San Andreas after 5 years in Liberty City. To make a long story short, CJ and his brother are betrayed by Smoke and Ryder, and CJ rescues his brother from jail and gets revenge on everyone...While doing TONS of other things and meeting TONS of other people.
The State of San Andreas has 3 cities;Los Santos,(Los Angeles)San Fierro,(San Francisco)and Las Venturas(Las Vegas).
In this game you are able to do tons more stuff than before; like lift weights, buy clothes, get tatoos, get hair cuts, gamble, and do tons of other stuff that would take all day to list. But they also made it gay by forcing you to eat or else youll starve.
AND FINALLY!!!!, You can swim instead of drowning upon contact with water!
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is great, but its fun to go back and play GTAIII and GTA Vice City as well.
the best video game ever
I went to the store today and bought Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
Released in late October of 2004, GTA: SA is a video game for the Playstation 2
(PS2). You take the role of a protaganist who goes around jacking people from their cars and performing missions on the streets of a fictional city called "San Andrdeas".
The great thing about the game is that there is so many things you can do besides follow the main story. Like be a taxi driver, paramedic, pimp, valet parker, street racer, truck shipment driver, pool shark, gambler and so on.
The game is a whole lot of fun if you're into action games with driving. NOT recommended for young audiences. The game is rated M (mature) for a reason.
Carl: "Don't take this personally, but you gettin' jacked."
best. game. ever.
best. game. ever.
the guy doing this definition is so right!
This massive game spans the entire state of San Andreas, with visits to three major cities patterned on real-life counterparts. There's Los Santos (based on Los Angeles), a gritty blur of smog and violence; San Fierro (based on San Francisco), and Las Venturas (based on Las Vegas), a midnight wonderland crawling with money, sex and corruption.
There are dozens of missions, hundreds of secrets, tons of vehicles and weapons, and all kinds of stuff to do.
Stuff like recruiting gang members, swimming, building property, riding bikes, eating, working out, getting a haircut, attracting the ladies and much, much more.
-Welcome to San Andreas
Welcome to San Andreas, possibly the largest console game ever made. Veterans of the series will marvel at the fact that SA feels about five times larger than Vice City, with enough core missons to keep you busy for dozens of hours.
-What's to Do?
As always, there are a series of missions dedicated to forwarding the expanisve story of San Andreas--the story of you, Carl Johnson. After being away from the hood for five years after the death of your family members, you've returned. The problems that plagued you are still there... and have gotten worse. It's up to you to set things right, gain respect, and deliver the hood from evil. As you progress through the game, you'll drive and steal countless numbers of vehicles. You'll notice that when you get in certain vehicles, you will be able to push a button and trigger special missio...
