Did You Know?


The "Cluckin' Bell" franchise in game, may be a reference to the popular British Historical comedy 'Black Adder Goes Fourth'. During the episode "Goodbyeee", the titular character 'Black Adder' (Rowan Atkinson) attempts to call in a favour to avoid 'The Big Push'. After his idea falls through, he claims "I think the phrase rhymes with 'Clucking Bell'". See more »


The game is set in 1992 and features the Stone Temple Pilots song "Plush" on radio station Radio X, but in actuality the song was released to radio in 1993. See more »

BEST GAME EVER. 10 out of 10
26 October 2004 | by (nowhere special) – See all my reviews

I Got A Copy Of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Last Night At 6:30 P.M. A Day Early. And I Must Say This Is Hands Down The Best Game I Have Ever Played. I Only Stopped Playing Because I Had To Go To School. But When I Get Home I Will Be Back Playing It. There Are So Many New Features. Like Swimming, Playing Basketball, Riding Bikes, Shooting Pool, There Are Too Many New Features To Type Here Not To Mention That The Game Is 5 Times Bigger Than Vice City And NEVER Loads Outside. I Give This Game A Perfect 10 Out Of 10. Nothing Can Beat This Game Except Maybe A Sequel.
