Grand Theft Auto(GTA): San Andreas (Highly Compressed)

Two years after the release of the mega-hit “Vice City”, Rockstar Games presented us with a new chapter in the Grand Theft Auto book, “San Andreas”. Set during the 90′s in the pseudo-California state, we hit the streets of three cities with Carl Johnson, our newly met gangster.

The title was surrounded by enormous hype during its development, and is widely recognised to have passed the expectations set upon it. This addition to the Grand Theft Auto series was warmly welcomed by the general public, and strengthened Rockstar Games’ position at the head of the industry. It has sold over 20 million copies to date, no small accomplishment.

Boasting partnerships with leaders of the entertainment industry such as Interscope Records and Universal Music, Rockstar aimed to compliment their game with one of the strongest soundtracks ever in a video game.

In a press release ending the fiscal year of 2004, Take 2 Games announced the success of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The title alone brought in 54% of the fourth quarter sales of 2004. The latest sales numbers have passed $300 million, and the title has set records in the UK for the fastest selling video game title. According to NPDFunworldSM data, San Andreas was the top selling PlayStation 2 title in the United States in October and November 2004, and has so far brought in close to 30% more revenue than its predecessor Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

In an attempt to maximise exposure and bring the game to a wider market, Rockstar Games released PC and XBOX versions of the game in the summer of 2005.

Story & Orientation: “Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas… a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where films tars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers.

Now, it’s the early 90s. Carl’s got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster.

On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.


PC Specific Features:

  • Save your player stats to an HTML file, which can be put on the internet and shared with others.
  • Photos taken with the in-game camera can be exported as .JPG screenshot files.
  • Support for the modding community.

A great part of the PC version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the possibility to modify it: Rockstar left important game data files unlocked and in text files as opposed to hard-coding them in the game. Although Rockstar listed “player modifications support” as a feature prior to release, Rockstar did not provide any game editors with the game.

It was decided that the PC version of San Andreas will not have an inbuilt 2-player mode as “the dual keyboard and mouse set up proved too unwieldy for players and didn’t work with the PC version of San Andreas’ greatly improved free camera mechanics. Rockstar North decided to focus on maximizing the single player experience.”
