    GTA San Andreas
    Carl Johnson muss weg... auf eine Reise, die ihn durch ganz San Andreas führt, um seine Familie zu retten und die Straßen unter seine Kontrolle zu bringen.

    Liberty City. Vice City. Jetzt wird mit San Andreas ein neues Kapitel der legendären Serie aufgeschlagen. Vor fünf Jahren hat Carl Johnson es geschafft, den Problemen von Los Santos zu entkommen - einer Stadt im Staat San Andreas, die in Bandenkriegen, Drogen und Korruption zu versinken droht. Einer Stadt, in der Filmstars und Millionäre so gut es geht versuchen, den Dealern und Straßengangs aus dem Weg zu gehen. Doch jetzt - wir schreiben die frühen 90er - muss Carl zurück und sich seiner Vergangenheit stellen. Seine Mutter wurde ermordet, seine Familie ist auseinander gebrochen und seine alten Freunde sind drauf und dran, auf direktem Weg ins Verderben zu schlittern. Doch kaum zurück in seiner alten Heimat, hängen ihm einige korrupte Cops einen Mord an. CJ muss weg... auf eine Reise, die ihn durch ganz San Andreas führt, um seine Familie zu retten und die Straßen unter seine Kontrolle zu bringen.

Game's page at 1C website:
    Пять лет назад Карл Джонсон бежал из Лос-Сантоса (штат Сан-Андреас) — города преступлений, наркотиков и коррупции, где даже кинозвезды и миллионеры вынуждены любыми способами защищаться от вымогателей и бандитов.

    Начало 1990-х годов. Карл возвращается домой. Его мать убита, семья распалась, друзья попали в беду, а против него самого выдвинуто сфабрикованное обвинение в убийстве. Чтобы вернуть близких и восстановить былые связи, Карл отправляется в опасное турне по Сан-Андреасу: он должен во что бы то ни стало завоевать улицы городов штата.

    • Огромный, детально проработанный игровой мир — штат Сан-Андреас, знаменитый тремя крупными городами, каждый из которых обладает неповторимым стилем и достопримечательностями: Лос-Сантос, Сан-Фиерро и Лас-Вентурас.
    • Элементы ролевой игры — возможность изменять внешность главного героя: делать татуировки, менять одежду и прическу; необходимость следить за состоянием его здоровья, в частности, регулярно и правильно питаться, заниматься спортом, чтобы он сохранял хорошую физическую форму; возможность развивать некоторые навыки, например стрельбы и вождения.
    • Более сорока видов оружия — бильярдный кий, кастеты, дубинки, бензопила, катана, автоматы, пулеметы, гранаты, миниган и многое другое. А также некоторые довольно необычные вещи, которые можно использовать в качестве оружия.
    • Около двухсот различных транспортных средств, которыми можно управлять, в том числе велосипеды, автомобили, мотоциклы, квадроциклы, катера, лодки, вертолёт, самолёт и даже комбайн.
    • Большое количество всевозможных мини-игр: бильярд, рулетка, покер, аркадные автоматы, уличный баскетбол и другие.
    • Любители острых ощущений смогут заняться бейс-джампингом – прыжками с парашютом с небоскребов или, например, совершить восхождение на гору Чилиад.
    • Возможность попробовать себя в разных профессиях — дальнобойщика, таксиста, швейцара, машиниста поезда, пожарного, вора-домушника и даже полицейского.
    • Великолепное музыкальное сопровождение — несколько часов музыки на одиннадцати радиостанциях в исполнении звездных коллективов разных музыкальных направлений, в числе которых Faith No More, KISS, Soundgarden, Rage Against the Machine, Guns ‘N’ Roses, Ozzy Osbourne.

    Summary

    Americans like things 'big' - cars, burgers, waistlines - and games don't come much bigger than Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The GTA series is arguably the hottest thing to hit gaming since Space Invaders and this latest instalment turns the thermostat up to 11.

    The free-roaming, car-jacking, 80's action of Vice City is brought forward to the early 1990s and expanded from a mere giant city, to fill an entire state - San Andreas. As small-time hood Carl Johnson, it's up to you to kick off your one-man crimewave, recruit a gang and climb the scum-encrusted ladder of criminal success until you are (crime) lord of all you survey.

    Details

    This time you have three whole cities to pillage - Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturra - and all the expansive countryside in between. As well as the cars, bikes, boats and choppers of Vice City, San Andreas expands your transport options with bicycles (you couldn't 'do' the 90's without BMXs, could you?) and the much-demanded swimming ability.

    But a bigger lawless playground demands more than just new ways to get around. San Andreas features a whole host of new ways to challenge budding virtual criminals, including burglary and fencing stolen goods.

    Of course, there's loads more stuff for you to blow your dollars on too. During the lean years, head over to budget store 'Binco' to get all your cut-price clothing, but 'SubUrban' is the place to be for any self-respek'in gangsta to get his bad threads.

    Ensure Carl remains the best looking gangster by getting a haircut from one of SA's best hairdressers. Afros, corn-rows and creative shaving are all on offer and the better Carl looks, the more respek he'll earn from his homies.

    But as 'bad' as San Andreas is, developer Rockstar has its tongue firmly in its cheek, and while Carl's activities may be reprehensible, there's still a thick vein of black humour running throughout - just check out the name of the top sports shop, ProLaps [snigger].

    Since GTAIII, the series has become synonymous with a kicking soundtrack and San Andreas is no different. With the whole back catalogue of the 1990's to choose from you can be guaranteed to find some rap legend, rock opus or Mad-chester, shoe-gazing classic on that in-car radio dial.

    Welcome to San Andreas. Population: Fun.

    Features

  • Latest in the astronomically popular GTA series

  • Not just a city, now you have a whole state to 'play' in

  • Recruit gang members to aid your crime spree

  • Customise your anti-hero with clothes, hairstyles and bling to earn the respect of your 'crew'

  • Stellar soundtrack made up of the biggest hits of the 1990s
