Grand Theft Auto III was the first move into true 3D for the Grand Theft Auto series, providing a sandbox game experience in the fictional Liberty City. Essentially focusing on a life of crime, stealing cars and shooting people while taking on various missions, this game marked the expected movement from the previous 2D games of this series, while staying impressively close to their format.

The game's improved graphics over its predecessors and apparent freedom of gameplay made this one of the PlayStation 2's highest selling video games - the series remains incredibly popular to this day on the back of that popularity. It was later released for the Xbox as part of Grand Theft Auto: Double Pack.

Storyline[edit | edit source]

You've been betrayed and left for dead. Now you're taking revenge, unless the city gets you first. Mob bosses need a favor, crooked cops need help and street gangs want you dead, you'll have to rob, steal and kill just to stay out of serious trouble. Anything can happen out there.
