A fun concept for the rebellious teenager

Pros:Large map. Non linear play style.

Cons:graphic violence required to play.

The Bottom Line: I don't recommend this game. The basic premise, the graphic violence, gets old and repetitive very fast.


Grand Theft Auto Three has been available for several years now. I am currently 26 and ashamed to admit that I actually bought this game when it first came out. As a young man in my late teens, I found enjoyment in the games premise. The basics of the game are simple. You beat people to death and steal their money, use the money to buy guns, use the guns to kill more people, steal cars to move around, stay away from the cops, and complete missions for crime lords that generally consist of some combination of the above acts. Oh, and did I mention that you can regain lost health by picking up a prostitute then killing her to get your money back?
Every aspect of this game is designed around the juvenile, sophomoric humor that only teenagers can understand. At the time when I owned this game, I played it incessantly and thoroughly enjoyed myself. Now, I look back on it and I'm not quite sure where the draw was. I believe the game has done as well as it has because it allows the ability for teens to be rebellious, and to act out just about everything that is bad in a controlled environment that we could not get in trouble for. As much as I enjoyed the expansive map and non linear play a few years ago, I must say that I just get bored by the repetition of it all now. It just doesn't appeal to me anymore.
