Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas delivers a complete experience with depth in detail and an entertaining experience in gaming. This game became a paragon of achievement in sandbox gaming for the time, and you have a story about a rags-to-riches character who starts his story in the 1990s. His name is Carl Johnson or CJ, and he has returned to Los Santos to help his old gang.

The primary story takes between 20 to 30 hours, and it starts you in a story where you face off with some of San Andreas's most notorious gangsters. You ride on the trails through the hills and mountains, and you will even pull off heists that Las Vegas inspired. The first thing that you notice about San Andreas is the rich variety in the landscapes. You have different cities in Grand Theft Auto, and there are no two cities that are alike. For example, you have the San Francisco inspired San Fierro. Los Angeles inspired Los Santos and Las Venturas was made as the game's Las Vegas.

CJ's appearance has total customization with haircuts, clothes, and tattoos. You can also bulk him up for fighting techniques and training. When Rockstar Games makes a game, everything that they do has a lot of depth for total immersion. From the 12 radio stations to the 240 vehicles. You also have a rich selection of speed boats, fighter jets, and bikes. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas also has a lot of side missions that can develop the backstory. You can go on dates, burglarize homes, fight enemy gangs over turf and play vintage arcade games. With past games, the biggest problem that plagued these games was how you might die and get stuck at the start of a tediously long mission. San Andreas includes checkpoints to stop that.

The biggest lure for a lot of gamers to San Andreas is the massive level of replayability in all their games. The game gives you total freedom to do missions, but if you choose, you can also just cause a lot of havoc. You have a gigantic map with a ton of different weapons and unforgettable characters. The driving missions that require drive-by shootings is needlessly overly complicated for the computer. Most people recommend a joystick for Windows 10 because it makes this aspect smoother and less difficult. While it doesn't hurt the overall experience, it can annoy you on a small level. In general, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas was a groundbreaking title for the time, and it inspired a lot of great sandbox games of the future. What you have to remember is that this game is over ten years old, but it still has a lot of potential to be a fun and entertaining game.
