About Grand Theft Auto III

Grand Theft Auto III introduced the third-person 3D game perspective to the game series in 2001 with its release for the PlayStation 2. The game is based in Liberty City, which is modeled on New York, and it follows the character Claude, an ambitious low-life criminal. The game is rated M for mature audiences because of the level of violence depicted.

The world is traversed on foot or by vehicle at the player's preferred pace, and players can travel freely in the three islands of Liberty City to complete missions. Some of the missions are difficult to complete and that is where the cheats come in handy.

Grand Theft Auto III is a hybrid game that includes elements of role-playing, exploring, shooting and driving. It has humor too—dark humor. The characters are well developed and the story lines are enticing. There are hundreds of possible missions, amazing cars and plenty of weather effects to deal with.
