Un jeu vraiment original et accrocheur qui nous change de l'ordinaire. Avec une meilleure réalisation, il aurait atteint des sommets !

Grand Theft Auto may not be the best looking game I have seen, but it sure packs a punch with the amazing amount of controversial gameplay that has been crammed onto one CD. The city's are enormous and you really have to drive around for quite some time before you get your bearings. Each mission is put across in such a 'tongue in cheek' fashion that I cannot see too many people getting upset at the content, although planting bombs in busy shopping malls may bring out a few placards. If only the handling of the cars had been a little more responsive then the value of the game would have matched the potential created by the subjects mass of advanced publicity.

Grand Theft Auto puts you in the role of a small-time criminal who is looking for a way to make a name for himself in the crime business. The quickest way to do so is by getting on the good side of the local crime boss by jacking cars, running drugs, and the ever-popular contract killing. In one of the game's most notable missions, you pick up a big rig loaded with explosives. Your task is to drive the rig into the police station, get out, and get away before taking out the pigs where they live.

In the end, we have a game that is a great idea, but not very well executed. With mediocre graphics and repetitive gameplay , some gamers might be disappointed. Like Postal, Grand Theft Auto is depending a lot on controversy to sell the game, not gameplay. While this works for sales, it tends to upset many hard-core gamers . However, if you are just looking for a fun, goofy, immoral game, than Grand Theft Auto should definitely be on your list.

En definitiva, que este «GTA» personalmente no nos ha gustado mucho y no entendemos muy bien porqué ha alcanzado tanta popularidad por tierras británicas. Pero, en fin, si te pica la curiosidad, pruébalo. A lo mejor a ti te encanta...

Incarnez la mauvaise engeance va bien deux, trois minutes quand c'est intéressant, mais là franchement c'est tellement laid et vide, que personne ne fera le tour des 200 missions.

Grand Theft Auto is a fun game, but you may find yourself saying to yourself outloud, "Hey, why didn't they fix that?" Not a good sign for a game that has so much potential.

In Grand Theft Auto, you're a goon on the lam, pulling jobs such as bombing or drug runs as you avoid the police either on foot or by hijacking any car in sight. GTA's violent nature, complete with abundant cursing, is sociopathically chic... but the game's just not any fun.

The Video Game Critic
In light of the frustrating gameplay, the blood and profanity seem more silly and gratuitous than offensive. GTA2 was a slight improvement, but the series didn't grow teeth until its third installment.
