Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a game for older consoles that has been ported to mobile devices like the Android, and this game has stood against time to provide an engaging experience that even modern games have a hard time matching.

This was the third game in the Grand Theft Auto trilogy that released on Playstation 2, so many younger players will probably have no experience with this game. It was quite an accomplishment when the game was released because it was so much larger in scale than any other open-world game at the time. The story is simple enough, and follows Carl Johnson, or CJ, on his quest to become a mafia boss. The main storyline alone takes up to 30 hours to complete, and there are tons of side quests along the way.

The game is something like Sim City, but for players who want to cause destruction and mayhem wherever they go. The player controls a single character through an open-world, and the area is ridiculously huge. The true genius of the game is in the details, and there are a ton of details. For starters, players can customize their character with a number of tattoos, hairstyles, and clothes. It's even possible to change the character's physique by making him work out or learn new fighting skills.

Vehicles are abundant in the game, and they are essential to reaching certain locations in the allotted time. There are 240 vehicles that the player can use, and those include everything from standard bikes all the way to fighter jets. Players can learn how to pilot these vehicles through training missions, which are basically side quests.

That is only the beginning of the side quests. The player can also play arcade games, go on dates, steal, fight gangs by assembling their own gang, and much more. There's so much to do that it literally can not all be detailed in a short review.

Those that have no interest in the main story and don't really want to complete the side quests will enjoy the rampage they can perform on the city. One of the biggest appeals of the GTA series is that players can enter the game and start destroying everything as a means of blowing off steam or venting frustration. This game provides the exact same freedom with tons of weapons and a huge map for destruction.

One of the downsides to the game is that the controls are a bit complicated on certain missions. Most of the game is fairly intuitive, and it gives tutorials on how to control things that aren't obvious. However, some of the missions that require unique tasks circumvent these standard controls and require some luck or extreme inherent skill to complete on the first try, but that's a relatively minor issue.
