    Ulitmately very addictive and entertaining

    When this game hit the shelves way back in 98’, it certainly didn’t come with all the controversy the later games did. Nevertheless, Grand Theft Auto started a revolution, so many copied what this game started. One of th... Read Full Review

    An original, probably not enough to be called "the best".

    Yes, indeed, this was the origin of the ever-so-famous series invading the homes of many. GTA has left a reputation of not only being available on consoles, such as this was on the PSX, but also left a mark on the PC ali... Read Full Review

    Such a great classic that started it all.

    When I first saw GTA I thought to myself "Wow, those are some terrible graphics and that over head view just seems annoying!". The reviews that came in certainly weren't that great either. It just so happened that I ha... Read Full Review

    Nothing special here. Boring gameplay, horrible graphics, and just plain boring.

    Graphics: 6/10 Too pixely. Explosions suck. Gameplay: 7/10 Kind of simple. Walk around, drive, shoot all in a bird eye's view. It gets very repetitive though and you'll find yourself bored. Lasting Appeal: 7/10... Read Full Review

    A Pioneer In Sandbox Gaming

    These days, the original GTA doesn't really live up to some of the other action games out there, but it's hard to imagine any of them being around without its success. It's believed that this was one of the first real sa... Read Full Review

    It relies more on shock value rather than good gameplay, and in comparison to the other GTA's, shock doesn't cut it.

    ... ...Well now, I think we all know about Grand Theft Auto. At least, when most people think about GTA, they think about the Grand Theft Auto III Era (GTA 3, Vice City, San Andreas, and the "Stories" series), but thi... Read Full Review
