Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Rockstar Games / Take-Two Interactive Software 2005

The follow-up to the immensely popular Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City draws upon a conceptual style reminiscent of the popular 1990s gangsta films like Boyz in the Hood and Juice. Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas...a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where filmstars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers. Now, it's the early 90s. Carl's got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster. On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets. The game will be about 5 times the size of Vice City and features a 50% increase in polygons. There are actually three cities in San Andreas based on real life locations like San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas. They are all interconnected with miles of interconnected freeways, deserts, mountains, rivers, and more. Communities are a lot more believable; civilians go around with purpose. You'll notice customers drive up to a pizza shop, park (and sometimes crash), enter the Pizza place, order some food, eat it and get on with the rest of their duties. It's entirely possible to drive from one end of the county to the other without ever seeing a loading screen (only a slight one whenever you enter an interior location) thanks to enhancements made to the streaming technology. Riding a bike in GTA is going to provide a lot of fun, whether it be nipping down a tight alley to avoid pursuers or hurtling down the infamous mountain range that apparently takes close to 30 minutes to cycle up. There is now the ability to customise CJ through the food he eats, the clothes he wears and his choice of haircut. There are consequences if you don't eat or eat too much. Additionally, CJ can now swim, has improved hand-to-hand combat skills, has the ability to recruit NPCs to follow him in his gang, can wear various new outfits, and can work out at a gym to become stronger. CJ can even improve specific player attributes and skills. There will be on-rails shooting segments where we have to gun people down while literally riding shotgun in a car that someone else is driving. There are also gambling mini-games of unknown type that apparently makeup a fully operational casino. More cab-missions (pizza deliveries, ambulance driving stuff, vigilante stuff, et cetera) will also be included. Side-missions also now help develop "skills" for use in later plot-critical missions.
Due to political uproar over a user-made Hot Coffee mod which allowed hidden simulated sexual scenes in the game to be viewed, the video ratings board forced the removal of all copies of San Andreas from stores. A 2nd version was then released on September 20th which complied with the M rating and had the offending code removed.
