Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is set in the early-'90s gang culture of "San Andreas," a fictional U.S. region modeled after California, the adventure plays out across the entire virtual state, with action centered in its three main cities: Los Santos (based on Los Angeles), San Fiero (San Francisco), and Las Venturas (Las Vegas). San Andreas strives to provide a wide, deep foundation for its free-form criminal gameplay by setting the story in a slightly exaggerated representation of a familiar (if not glorified) American subculture.

Grand Theft Auto has been around for several years and it was a bit disappointing that the great game was only enjoyed by those who had game consoles. No longer the issue here, with the PC version dropping in and surprising everyone with the effective shift. But with the good news, there is always the bad, something to be expected in all thing man made and developed. Fortunately, the bad is not too bad and can be overlooked. Nothing's perfect, right? That would be asking too much.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for PC comes in DVD and a book which serves as a manual. A bit daunting when first looked into but it definitely makes a lot of difference getting familiar with it. This version of the thrill ride format can easily be seen as the best version ever developed. The display is incredible, the characters look so much better and the sound is simply fantastic.

There are some problems here and there and some of the characters are a little on the dumb side. The music could have been improved but in the end it really doesn't matter. There are a lot of things to do, the dialogues obviously went through a lot of reading and improvements to make them sound well and logical, the cast is good, there are so many unexpected surprises along the way. In short, this PC version of GTA is strong and thrilling.

Full options come with the controls in the PC version. The player can customize the gamepad to make it play like the console does or the player can choose to use the standard mouse and keyboard control. Whichever method is chosen, they work, although there are times when the ALT-TAB had to be used because the keyboard refused to respond. This may not be a good thing to experience in the middle of the adventure but it's okay. The mouse control has been refined as well, and can pose a bit of difficulty for the unfamiliar. It can be slick and the control can run amok.

Overall, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas PC version is at par with the previous game console versions. There are the usual minor issues, but nothing is perfect and no game is perfect, those that I have played at least. For fans for the thrill ride, this is the PC version you do not want to miss out on. There are so many things that you need to discover on your own, just as the thick manual implies when you first get to look at it. My recommendation? Isn't it obvious? I say go and buy it, there would be no regrets. This way you not only get the chance to play an incredibly developed game, but you get the chance to go back to it several times once you are done with all the level. This is a good addition to the library or collection.
