In 1997, a band of developers that would come to be known as Rockstar North and Rockstar Games released the original Grand Theft Auto on an unsuspecting public. The groundbreaking non-linear urban crime game shook up a complacent game industry with its irreverent gameplay, humor and style- and a phenomenon was born.

Comment: Grand Theft Auto is a singelplayer adventure action video game developed by the company DMA Design and it was published by BMG Interactive in year 1997.
It yea 1997 GTA and the gameplay was unique. This was the only game where you could drive a car, bus, bike, and walking in the street and shooting, fighting
other people. It was a combination from driver and duke nuke but just not with so good graphic. But it was just a first step. Now we all know how does the game looks like. But now we are talking about the old GTA. Like I say, the gameplay was unique, you could play the game as a criminal and you could free roam
in the big city. Or you can clear the different missions like kill some other criminals, stealing cars, or helping other gangs to robber the bank and other
different funny criminal missions. When you get bored from missions you could be such a normal person in a big city, you could for example transport people with taxi. I did it sometimes.

Grad Theft Auto is set in three different cities. In every city you need to reach a target point, by clearing the different missions. Each city got different quest that you need to clear. For every cleared mission you get the target points and reward in money or different weapons. But you need to care, you can be killed by the different criminals or you could be catched from police. Every time you get killed you lose one life and you begin your game in a hospital. WHen you get arrested you lose all your weapons and you start your new life at police station. When you was in the middle of a job
or quest you need to begin it again. Clearing the different quests brings you to the next city and you get the glory of the best criminal in the city.

I really enjoyed the free to do whatever mode. You could do whetever you want. Stealing and selling cars, fighting people, shooting people and lot
more funny thinks. Sometimes when you are in the mission, and finish it, you need to spend some time to be free and after some time you get a new job. And this was something unique in this game, and thats why this game was so popular. You could do what you want, or do some criminal jobs. I played this game a lot. I cleared all the missions and the different jobs. This was a new generation of game. Now we all know how popular this game is. Sound was cool to, you could change the different radio station, or just switch it off to hear how people scream. I rate grand theft auto with a note
10/10. The graphic was not so good but the game was fun, and the gameplay was unique. My memories come back. I didnt have my own computer so
I played this game a lot at my friend. Hope you enjoyed the reading of my Grand theft auto review

Comment: Grand Theft Auto ( GTA ) is one of best game ever what i played. I think to all people played or saw this game… I mostly love Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. That game is very old and avlibave to play on lower configuration Pc. I usually play GTA SA with friends and then we enjoy while playing that game… GTA have a lot of cheat and a lot of people use them for fun ( to go on highest building and jump with monstertruck, to go with helicopter on highest place and jump and a lot of more things ).. GTA have very good graphic if watch to this game realesed on end of last centaury.. You have a lot of good weapons. You can complete missions and when complete them all then you complete game. You can buy houses and in them you can savew your progress… I mostly use cheat ” Hesoyam ” for health and money. Also you have your friends and enemy and near them police. Your friends wear green clothes and sometimes they go with you on mission. Your enemies wear purple and they have their bands. Police wish to arrest you when you do anything bad. Max level of police is 6 stars and then helicopters, specials, tanks attack you and that is funny when have cheats 😀 I am finishing this review about one of best game and have to say ” If no tried this now is right time! “.. 10

Comment: As this game release it was something new on the market.
You could so so much in this game … Be a good guy or a bad boy. Stealing cars, bus, bikes, shoot random ppl, fight … or just cruising with a car, walking in the park. It was something like Driver, but you could do much more. Great graphic and cool missions. Rly nice game … I played it.
Old and good … 8/10

Comment: GTA is probably one of the best console games that I’ve tried. There’s one thing that I don’t like about the games though. It’s waaay to easy to cheat. I don’t get why they made the game that way. It’s like they want you to cheat in the game. But that’s probably the only thing that I don’t like. The rest is absolutely amazing. I really like the graphics. They are very detailed. In GTA you can drive all sorts of cars, helicopters and boats. It’s pretty easy to use all of them except the helicopter (at least I think so). It’s easy to control the helicopter except when to land. But I manage to land without making it explode at least lol. There is many missions in the games which is very good. It can keep you busy for a long time. The sounds are also very good. At least in the latest games. In total a great game that everyone should try (except people who don’t like violence :p).

Comment: Rockstar really makes nice game. I like the whole aspect of you can drive around the whole city and do crimes and stuff and blow up things. The mission makes it exiting to. Cheatcodes help the game out a lot to.

Comment: Grand Theft Auto is probably one of the most known games in the history of games. You can do everything you every wanted to do (illegally) in this game! You can basically rob people of their cars, shoot people, and do all bad things known to man. It’s fun to just play Grand Theft Auto when you’re bored or mad because it’s a stress reliever(For me atleast). Who doesn’t like shooting pedestrians? Some people may not like this game for its violence and crudeness but it’s a great game overall. If you like shooting people and robbing people, this is the game for you. =P

Comment: any rpgs are the best ever


  1. GTA is first part of franchise that started it all , really good at that time even tho I didnt like camera prospective that much ( watching from above ) .

    Septera did not rate this post.
  2. grand theft auto is a game with a huge history.First gta was from 3d person but now is 1st person game.
    my best are:
    Gta San Andreas in Los Santos
    Gta IV
    Gta V
    Everyone has very good story.My best from this list is Gta San Andreas it is old but has very very interesting story.It has many missions but when you finish them you can make fun in city with cheats.You got many different cheats like Rocketman for:machine for flying,Kjkszpj:for weapons,Oh dude For helicopter!Later you can go to gym develop your body and improve your fighting skills.You can buy new apartments,houses,villas,cars and other.If you are poor you can use cheat Hesoyam,it gives you much armor and money :P.

  3. Comparing this game to the current ones would be too much but this game was awesome when the current GTA games is not out yet it was fun the graphics is old the gameplay might not be fun anymore if you play it.

  4. Ahh the original GTA game. Some would say this is too outdated which I do agree, however, it’s ‘Ancient’. This game game cannot compare with the newer version that are released today mainly because of the graphic and horrible dialog, however, the game itself is the founding game that created this series. Therefore, I suggest trying to see the improvements Rockstar has made from the past years.

  5. Okay. This game might not be “good” in any aspect now adays but this game has proven its worth and is the pillar of the GTA games. It’s classic so its still worth playing c:

  6. Grand Theft Auto, the first open world action-adventure game of the Grand Theft Auto series, is a relic to be appreciated. Although this game is old by today’s standard, it is still gold to those who grew up playing the older Grand Theft Auto series. The concept of Grand Theft Auto is still present with elements like missions, crime, and violence, but the main difference between the original Grand Theft Auto and the newer versions of Grand Theft Auto is primarily graphics. Although this game does not have a first-person perspective, it is interesting to see what Grand Theft Auto is like in third-person. The game’s graphics does appear old and outdated, but that is expected for a game that came out in 1997. Overall, I would rate this game a 4/5.

    Snowy did not rate this post.
  7. This game hasn’t aged as well as the other GTA titles but it’s nonetheless a classic and it set a cornerstone for proceeding games. Without this game they probably wouldn’t have any knowledge to pull from in order to make San Andreas and GTA V as great as they were.

    Rex did not rate this post.
  8. Played it a lot when i was younger, i still would consider playing it, not a big fan of new versions because the old ones are the original and much better even tho the graphics are bad.

  9. The original game that started it all, wow. This version is absolute crap when it comes to the new ones. Though this game was a gem back in it’s day. Some people I’m sure would still like playing this game. The graphics ain’t good at all but the game play isn’t that bad. I rate the game 4/5 because it used to be such a great game.
