Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas review

Explore a state and enrage your parents

GTA: San Andreas is possibly the most ambitious game ever attempted, but that doesn't make it great. What doesmake itgreat is that it actually delivers on nearly everything it promises while still being fun to just pick up and play. Packed with enough stuff to keep even hardcore gamers busy for months, San Andreas is the ultimate time-waster for those old enough to play it.

After graduating from college in 2000 with a BA in journalism, I worked for five years as a copy editor, page designer and videogame-review columnist at a couple of mid-sized newspapers you've never heard of. My column eventually got me a freelancing gig with GMR magazine, which folded a few months later. I was hired on full-time by GamesRadar in late 2005, and have since been paid actual money to write silly articles about lovable blobs.
