GRAND THEFT AUTO: SAN ANDREAS - XBOX® & PC REVIEWS
All across the globe, legions of Grand Theft Auto fans are traversing the massive state of San Andreas - discovering and revisiting the West Coast epic on its all new platforms. In the meantime, we're proud to announce that the Xbox and PC gaming press has spoken with definitive critical praise.
PC Gamer - 95%
"San Andreas bodysnatched me for two weeks of 12-hour marathons.
It consumed me so thoroughly that I seldom put down my gamepad to eat or shower, let alone write the thousand words here.
Buy, borrow, or steal a copy today. Gaming doesn't get any better than this."
GameSpy - 5/5
"I played through the game when it came out for the PS2, and I can honestly say that I'm having
a blast playing it again...
If you've been searching for the best Grand Theft Auto experience around, look no further:
San Andreas is the real deal."
TeamXbox.com - 9.7
"San Andreas is about total gameplay immersion; an intangible that is rare to encounter and hard to categorize. Pick this one up and play it for an evening - you'll see what's up.
Good luck putting the controller down...
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a must experience, must buy title for the Xbox. Even if you've played the PS2 version, do yourself a favor and play Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on the Xbox - it is different enough in a good way to warrant the time investment and purchase."
