I have alot of fun playing this game again. The last time i played it was 10 years ago and my English was, well missing. I play this game on my main laptop (Dell E6430 with i5 3320, 16 GB RAM, 1600x900 and a nasty integrated GPU). I have a blast playing this game. I left my PC collecting dust (i5 4570/16 GB RAM/GTX 770). So if you wonder what to play, its not a bad idea to try something old, and have a completely new experience.

This game works very well in my previous PC, a Dual Core 4000+ with a graphic board ATI HD1250, this card was very bad, but in this game was OK.

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.
