Did You Know?


In the Horse Racing mini-game, there is a horse with the name 'Henriks Jaw' in reference presumably to the former Celtic FC striker Henrik Larsson, whose jaw breakage saw him sidelined from football for a period in 2003, during the time San Andreas was in development. Considering Rockstar North is based in Scotland, it would seem likely that some of their employees working on the game could be Celtic fans. See more »


The name of the Turismo sports car is misspelled on the packing for the miniature version of the car in Zero's RC Shop. See more »

best game i've got yet !
11 February 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

when i got this game i was so excited and i couldn't wait to play it once i played it, i was in the zone i really enjoyed it and now is the only game i play, i also like the characters in this game especially the crooked cop Officer Tenpenny who is voiced by no other than Samuel L Jackson who i thought suited the character very well and some of the cinematic sequences was almost like a real movie with the characters attitude towards each other.I found this game very amusing because the cities remind you of America itself even though i haven't been there yet.Who ever gets this game should thank themselves for getting it i give this game 10/10 this is a good upgrade from vice city.
