Trivia

One character was removed from the final version of the game. Yet the character names are left in the book, and in the game's credits, named Darkel. There is nothing left of him in the game except for Darkel's character skin, who appears to be a hobo / homeless person. Two popular ideas about Darkel's removal are: 1) He gave terrorist like missions, and were removed due to the 9/11 attacks. 2) He gave you the rampages, but the company decided the traditional skull icons would be better. Darkel was voiced by Bill Fiore. See more »

Just awesome
21 April 2002 | by (California) – See all my reviews

To put it simply, Grand Theft Auto 3 is one of the very best video games, or any form of entertainment for that matter, ever made.

You've probably heard about how graphically violent this game is, and there's certainly no denying it. People (criminals, gang members, cops, pedestrians, etc.) can be murdered in a variety of entertaining ways, but GTA3 isn't about mindless mayhem. The game is actually story driven, and that, combined with awesome gameplay (driving being a main factor of course) is what really puts it over the top. It's quite an experience as you rise through the ranks from petty Jack-of-all-trades thug-for-hire to a millionaire. Chock full of tons of fun missions, from carjacking to assassinations to body disposal and anything else your employer needs you to do.

Enough of my pretentious praise though. If you haven't played Grand Theft Auto 3 yet, what are you waiting for?!
