Grand Theft Auto is the first installment in the popular and controversial series of action games in which the players may abandon all moral norms and simply loot, steal and kill without any limits.

The action takes place in three big American metropolises: Miami (Vice City), New York (Liberty City) and San Fransico (San Andreas), where our job is to perform all sorts of tasks commissioned by the mafia bosses. At first, those are easy missions, such as stealing cars, but with our progress, measured in wealth and prestige, the difficulty level will increase, and so we will eventually take part in bank robberies, murders and other audacious crimes.

Our basic working tool is a car. It is essential to effectively move through the street and perform quick robberies, as well as getting away from the furious police. The car is our only "true friend", so we have to learn to drive it, take turns at high speed, use handbrake and make the most of all its capabilities.

Grand Theft Auto uses 3D graphics (with aerial view) and allows for both single- and multiplayer gameplay for up to four players at the same time. The developers gave us almost unlimited possibilities – we may steal, drive and destroy every car we see and beat up or run over every passerby we meet. All of that “earned” the game the “adult only” rating.

Game score 7.3 / 10 calculated out of 1972 players' votes.
