Grand Theft Auto San Andreas description
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, or GTA San Andreas, is the third 3D game from the Grand Theft Auto series. The game was first published in 2004 for PlayStation 2 and soon extended for computer and other platforms. The game also won many awards including the following: VGX – Game of the Year, Gamespot – Best action adventure game, Teen Choice – Best video Game and many others.
The game has been developed by Rockstar Games, while the map from GTA San Andreas has been inspired by the real zones from California and Nevada, including lots of real institutes, digs, architecture and structure, yet using fictional names. It also has a secret base which is similar to area 51.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Story
This time GTA will make its players go into the neighborhood, exactly in year 1992, playing Carl Johnson or, as his friends called him simply, CJ. After some years in prison, CJ is going back in the neighborhood, trying to reconnect with the band and other old friends, getting the bad news of his mother’s funeral. With every day that will pass by, he will hear and learn more about the things that have happened with the neighborhood and the gang. But trying to assemble the missing parts of the story, he will encounter deception, lies, drugs, and his life threatened everyday by characters from the rival gangs trying to take control of the hood.
The game will successfully manage to make you feel the vibe of the hood in those years, with all that it offered: both good and bad, by using words in their jargon form, by the bad habits of the characters he will meet, by the hip hop culture with large clothes, graffiti and, of course, music. CJ will try to stay away from any trouble, but in the hood and with the gang around him, this is not an easy thing to do. He will face many dangerous challenges, but in the end you will see which path he will choose.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Technical Issues
If you buy the game from an official partnership with Rockstar Games, there will be lots of updates and the majority of bugs will be fixed quickly. The game will become bugged when you play a pirated version or when you just try too many game modes in a short period of time. To mention some funny bugs, there is the Phone Glitch – this will happen when you answer the phone and you are underwater, on jetpack or parachute. The dialog will just skip quickly.
Another funny one will be the Paramedic Glitch – this sometimes happens during gang wars, when ambulance is coming: there are so many corpses on the street and they are just vanishing, yet the paramedic from the car will still be doing his job and move his hands on the ground like checking vital signs although there is nobody there.
