Grand Theft Auto III (PC)
Advantages: Almost Everything!
Disadvantages: There aren't any bikes, helicopters, boats.
It's a great game, with a good storyline and gameplay. Altrough the bikes and boats are absent and the only aircraft is a half-winged Dodo, almost impossible to fly with. The Ammu-Nation is really limited, just like the range of weapons. There's only one weapons for each type, and for those who there's more than one, the player can take all of them, instead of replacing. There isn't the hability of buying properties, and there isn't a map on the menu either. Anyway, the game, for the first of Rockstar's 3D GTAs, was great.
The game was the first of the franchise to have a storyline, and it was a good one. In the game, you are Claude, who, during a bank heist, is betrayed and shot by your girlfriend Catalina, and left to death. Altrough, you survive, and is arrested by the local police (LCPD). While being transported to the prison, a Colombian Cartel car attacks the Enforcer, in order to rescue one of the three guys in it, giving you and your friend a chance to escape. You and 8-Ball(your friend's name) escape, and go to Luigi's club, one of 8-Ball's friend, in order find a job. Now you want to revenge Catalina's betrayal, while grow in the city's organizated crime, in order to become the king of the town.
The gameplay is close to Vice City's, altrough it doesn't have bikes, and only one boat, obtained only in one mission or trough modifications. The helicopters aren't enterable. The only aircraft is the Dodo, wich is hard, really really hard to fly with. The game has the hability of changing the camera's position, between Top-Down and 3D while on foot, and Far, Normal, Near, 1st Person, Cinematic and Top-Down while in a vehicle.
The player or pedestrians aren't able to crouch, that was only able after Vice City. The police is also in the game, trying to kill or arrest the player if he/she commits any out-of-law acts while in a cop's sight. The firefighters and paramedis are also in the game, coming when people die, of there's any fire.
GTA III's soundtrack is really huge, if compared with it's predecessor, GTA 2. It goes from a Pop/Rock radio to a Talk Show one, passing through Classical, Dub, Trance, Pop, Hip Hop, Drum/Bass,Old Pop, and even a User-Created radio. In Government vehicles, such as Cop Cars, the police chatter is played instead.
Summary: The first 3D GTA, and one of the bests!
