User Rating: 9.5 | Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas PS2
Without question, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the best game in the GTA III era, and arguably the best of the entire GTA series. You play as Carl "CJ" Johnson, who has escaped his pressures in San Andreas by heading off to Liberty City. After hearing the news that his mother has been murdered and that his family and friends are falling apart, CJ decides to move back to San Andreas with hopes of ending all of the bloodshed. His return was not what he had expected it to be. His brother, Sweet, and him still argue like children, his gang, The Grove Street Families are crumbling and his whole words seems as if it is collapsing before his very eyes. CJ, with his experience in gang life, must now put an end to rival gang members, corrupt cops and sinister crooks to save his friends, family, gang and most importantly, himself. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is an instant classic as it rightfully deserves a 9.5 out of 10.0 rating. CJ is a wonderful protagonist with an interesting background, San Andreas serves as a beautiful and huge map to choose from, and GTA: San Andreas is one of the best games I've ever played in my entire life.
