Summary

A good game, with everything a guy (or some females) could want. Guns, cars, troublemaking, women. It's all here, and it's all fun! (Don't try this at home).

The Good

The obvious is the action. Getting chased around by cops, the SWAT team, and the military has never been so entertaining. The depth of story was excellent, it felt as though you were actually a PART of the game, and not just some guy (or girl) playing it. The freedom to walk up to a jogger and beat them to a pulp, or to steal and drive any vehicle, or just go wandering around the city for a while is a definite plus.

The Bad

They need to add an option to talk to people. I wanted to go to the clubs to hook up, not just to kill everybody. Aside from that, I have very few complaints. This game is bound to be remembered for ages and ages. It's a classic, and a landmark achievement in video games.

The Bottom Line

If you're into action and crime, this one's for you. I have to say that this is one of the very few games in which the point is to be the BAD GUY, and to get away with it! Very fun, and addictive. A good rental, but a GREAT buy. I don't think you can even do everything there is to do in the game with a week rental.
