Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a successful episode of the GTA (Grand Theft Auto) series from Rockstar Games. Originally released on PlayStation 2 in 2004, it has gradually been transposed to many platforms: computers, consoles (PS3, PS4, Xbox), mobiles and tablets.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas uses the 3D engine that made GTA III so successful. The player must take control of Carl Johnson, a young bandit who lives in Los Santos, a city inspired by Los Angeles, part of the imaginary metropolis of San Andreas.

In this opus, it is possible to take control of cars, planes, trains, and helicopters. Gyms allow you to strengthen your character to improve his physical abilities. Dozens of missions, almost all outlaws (theft, trafficking, violence, threats, murders, kidnappings ...), are to be carried out to complete the intense scenario of this game.

It is a violent game that should not be put in everyone's hands. It offers videos and explicit sensitive content (violence, sex), it is also classified PEGI 18, that is to say prohibited to under 18 years.

Why play Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas?

GTA is a timeless and ultra-well-known license that hits the mark every time it releases or re-releases a game. Although it is geared only towards adults, it is always a great success and its games always obtain very high marks in user reviews. San Andreas therefore remains in this lineage. Fans will find the worlds they are used to there: gangsters, car theft, shooting at anything that moves, etc.

Grand Theft Auto : San Andreas is a third person shooter, that means you are taking a character on the screen. But it is also a driving simulation game, where the user can find himself on board a whole list of vehicles of all kinds.

In this opus (the eighth of the license) you lead a gang member, his name is Carl "CJ" Johnson. The biggest fans will have recognized it since it is the main character of the GTA III trilogy (of which this opus is the last). Five years have passed since Carl's last appearance. You are back in your (fictitious) hometown of Los Santos (city of the fictitious state of San Andreas). You came back after the news of the murder of your mother, that you will, of course, want to avenge. In passing, you will take the opportunity to restore the image of your gang, and fight against rogue cops who have decided to blame you for a murder (which for once you did not commit). Welcome to the 1990s!

So much for the story. The game world is therefore the state of San Andreas (very inspired by the states of the American West, in particular California and Nevada). Your playground is over 36 km², in open universe, that is to say that you will be able to explore every nook and cranny, which promises long hours of play in perspective. In particular, you will find large cities (each with its own identity), a coastal region, rural areas (farms, mountains, forests, desert). Very many playgrounds so where the player can have a blast with vehicles of all kinds.

The gameplay has been, as always, improved from the previous version. So Rockstar Games has made sure that the loading time when moving the character from one area to another in San Andreas is as short as possible. You therefore have the impression of moving forward in a linear fashion without having to wait for each chainring change. The combat features have also been given a facelift and you will be able to use techniques such as infiltration, taking advantage of smart aim points (changing color depending on the character's remaining lives).

The user will be able to direct his character in the game's settings by making him walk, run, roll, crouch, jump, but also swim and climb! And, of course, since we are in a game of the GTA license, you will also be able to steal a whole series of vehicles of all kinds ranging from cars to trucks, including the less common ones: boat, plane, helicopter, quad, motorcycle, bicycle, tractor, train or even golf cart, luggage rack, combine harvester. Is that not enough for you ? Then you can also fly an airboat or an army jetpack! To fulfill your missions, you will have to find weapons, steal all kinds of cars and escape the police forces in anthological chases. You may even work for rogue cops like Franck Tenpenny, who threatens to indict you for a murder you did not commit. 

The game offers many missions parallel to the main story. Some will take you forward in it, others will allow you to earn points, equipment, etc. As always, you will need to be wary of law enforcement and not get caught when you commit an offense. The more serious the offense the more the police force increases, then it goes to SWAT, then to the FBI, then to the National Guard, etc. With each time more sophisticated and powerful vehicles to stop you, the palm going to the army with its fighters equipped with missile launchers.
