Back of the Box
GTA III is set in modern Liberty City, a fictional metropolitan city. The game follows a nameless criminal who was betrayed by his girlfriend in a bank heist, and is required to work his way up the crime ladder of the city before confronting her. GTA III is composed of elements from driving games and third-person shooters, and like its predecessors, implements sandbox-like gameplay, where the player is given the freedom to explore a large city, complete missions, commit criminal acts, or complete side missions.

There is a fix, something that had to do with the audio options. I had Intel HD Graphics 1st gen and an Intel Pentium and it ran somewhat okay.

Dont liked that game much.
You cant jump from car when it catches fire.
No two wheelers.
Missions intersect with each other. So I dont played that game much.
But GTA 4 is better than this game.

I know bro but remember vice city san andreas.
We can jump from car in previous games.
And they both have 2 wheelers two.
So I was kind disaapointed at that time.
I've played that game in 2004 after playing vice city an san andreas

This is actually my all time favourite game!!! It came out when I was at college, and I played the hell out of it. At the time of release, there was nothing else like it - it blew my mind. Obviously subsequent GTA titles have built on and improved the formulae - but GTAIII had the biggest impact on me personally.
Back in 2002 I ran out and bought a GeForce 4200 ti so i could run this at 1280x1024! Cost me over 300 bucks - worth every penny.
To this day, I still do a play through about once a year.
