Trivia

Rockstar Games denied claims made by 50 Cent about him being asked to voice C.J, but turned it down because if he was ever to voice a character in a video game it would be as himself. See more »

Goofs

The sign on Mr Grant's bike shop in Dillimore shows a freeride mountain biker, a style of mountain biking that didn't reach prominence until the late 1990s. Furthermore, the bike that is on the sign is a Specialized Big Hit - a model that didn't come out until 2003. See more »

BEST GAME EVER. 10 out of 10
26 October 2004 | by 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.
