Trivia

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 »

Goofs

If you get in a train in Los Santos and derail it near North Rock (the easiest place to do it) you will only find two train cars, yet there were three on the train: The locomotive, and two passenger cars. See more »

Another successful GTA game is here and it's great. What more can I say? From the Liberty City to the streets of Los Santos San Andreas, CJ must find out his mother's killer at the same time, bring the gang back together and bring the streets back to the Grove. Wow, they depicted California and the West Coast in the early 90s, and it was cool, no to mention the city that is supposed to be Las Vegas. Speaking of which, I was one of those who believed that this game was to be in las Vegas. Those old rumors regarding 'Sin City', hence the name, and it would mostly include gambling. But those rumors were just rumors. But hey, this game is just so hard boiled and great. There are new features, an eating system, where you have to keep your energy up, and at the same time making him full, and an exercise system, where you have to keep him buff, so he will develop strength, and so you can give people a hard punch. And now, you can develop driving skills too, and the weapons you use, the skill will also be upgraded too. And everything else from the previous GTA games are in it, the gameplay, the driving, it's here. Great. Marvelous. Keep it up Rockstar. Recommended for the fans of the games.
