Rockstar Games once again invites players to "explore their inner criminal" with the release of Grand Theft Auto III for Windows-based home computers. This violent, mission-based driving game has the player resuming the role of a cold-hearted street thug making his way up the ladder of underworld gangs and organized crime. With over 50 different types of vehicles on the busy city streets, sports cars to SUVs, taxi cabs to 18-wheelers, and even ambulances and cop cars all there for the taking, a wide variety of outlaw adventures awaits.
The setting of Liberty City is made up of three districts and in all, Grand Theft Auto III offers over 80 different missions that need not be solved in any particular order. As the player completes jobs available to him in one part of the city, other areas open up to him. Along with this purposeful design of a non-linear story, many other features made popular in earlier versions of Grand Theft Auto return in this release as well, including a diverse variety of deadly weapons, busy streets full of self-involved pedestrians, and different radio station soundtracks for vehicles of different types. ~ T.J.
