New York City meets Munich

Go back, Jack, do it again

In the first hour or two of playing Grand Theft Auto San Andreas I could do the following things in the game: play two different video games (alas, I would hope one of the games would be an early version of GTA, but sadly no), shoot hoops, lift weights, ride a bike (even a stationary bike), drive a car, get a haircut, climb and vault a chain link fence, buy and wear different clothing, take pictures with a camera, order and eat food, get lucky with a hooker, spray paint some graffiti, perform a drive by shooting, beat up a crack dealer, rob a gun collector, and evade the police.

The amount of things you can do is staggering. The one thing you cannot do is free up space on a memory card to save your damn game once you’ve started. So perhaps Rockstar might think of adding this warning for Grand Theft Auto Mos Eisley (or whatever it is that comes out next): “There isn’t enough room on your memory card to save the game. Do you want to start a game any way?” Other games do this, and now I really understand how important it is.

But, that minor nit aside, GTA:SA is rocking my world. It’s like Vice City turned up to 11.
