Product Description

Drive yourself back into the Grand Theft Auto world. San Andreas brings back the incredible action of the hit game series. Carl Johnson left the San Andreas neighborhood of Los Santos five years ago, when it was being ripped apart by drugs and gang violence. When he returns in the early 90s, his mother has been killed, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are criminals. When crooked cops frame him for murder, he decides to save himself and his family by taking over the streets.

Advanced role-playing elements -- Unlike previous GTA characters, Carl can swim and he needs to eat to survive Side missions help develop skills that come into play later -- from working out at the gym to gambling in a casino Windows 2000 / XP

To start out: GTA SA is one of the best games I've ever played. I beat the game years ago and STILL play it on a daily basis.
I recently got a new computer with Windows 7 on it and had a few problems getting it to start. After hours of googling and tons of dead-end leads and failed atempts I finally got it working:

It is important to run BOTH the setup.exe AND the game launcher in Compatibility mode (Windows XP SP3).
(I had been problem-solving with an install that wasn't run in an Windows XP shell.)

I hope this helped someone.

This has to be one of the greatest games of all time.....I made a mistake when I sold my xbox and this game...I never knew that years later I would be at it again. GTA:SA is very broad; the map is broad and the game is long,you can learn new fighting styles, get haircuts, buy clothes, mod cars, race cars, have gang wars and fight for turf, make your own radio station with songs from your pc, ride almost anything from bicycles to four-wheelers to airplanes to tractors, go skydiving, run in marathons, and much more. There is a pretty nice selection of weapons to choose from. Multi-player is awesome. This game is also compatible with pc controllers so have at it!

What a great game. Between the music and the storyline, you can't get board playing this game
To make it work on Windows 7, this is what I did-
Right click on "Play GTA San Andreas"
Go to properties
Go to compatability
Run program in Windows XP service pack 2
Check "Disable Visual Themes"
Check "Disable Desktop Composition"
Run the progam as an administator.
It works for me, hope it works for you

I bought this the day it came out for the PS2 and I played it nonstop for weeks. When the PC version was released I picked it up right away as the PC is my preferred gaming platform. After all these years I'm still blown away with everything they crammed into this game. There are very few games that have the longevity of this one. Yes the graphics are outdated by today's standards, but for me fun is more important than graphics any day. This is a game you can feverishly play day in and day out then put it away for a few months and come back to it only to discover new things. I can safely say I've seen every pixel III and Vice City have to offer but with San Andreas there's always a nagging doubt that I haven't seen it all. Months will go by without playing it then I'll take it out for a spin yet again and discover some Indian ruins in the desert, a parked vehicle that triggers a race, A funny poster in a tavern, ANYTHING! IV (and probably V) will never find a home on my hard drive unless they remove all the crapware that comes with it so for now and for always (probably) San Andreas is the ultimate GTA experience for me. Going on eight years and It's still as fun as the day I bought it. If you don't own it yet grab a copy. It's in the bargain bin now, why not?

Update 11/2014:

Here we are folks. 10 years! A decade I've been playing this game and I just discovered the rusty wheelchair on the pier. What other secrets will I discover in the next decade? Who knows?!

Like I've been doing since 2004; I won't play for around 4-6 months, decide there's no new games that excite me, pull out San Andreas for yet another play-through and get blown away with the sheer magnitude of the game. I discover new things every single time!

After a decade of pondering I can now claim without hesitation that 'Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas' is the greatest video game ever made.

I have yet to play the game, but I notice that it kept two grandsons occupied for the duration of their visit - apparently, the gameplay is considerably expanded from the previous version (which I have played). I have the PC version, they have it on the XBOX, I'd guess, and they say the experiences are nearly identical (OK, shouldn't they be? It is, after all, supposed to be the same game...). Still, I am looking forward to getting some time with the game in the near future - I'm not that much of a gamer, but I'm told that this one can be "absorbing" - they mapped out all the "missions" for me, and it looks like it could keep a player like me occupied for months...

Awesome game... Took me forever to beat it but I finally did... Love the fact that you can create your own music station from songs in your PC. That is really cool! The cities are huge. I'm glad they included a map with this game because it is hard to find everything without one. Great story line too. Trying to avenge the murder of your mom and brother in a city filled with corrupt cops, racial hatred, and gang violence.

You are Carl Johnson, framed for a cop killing gone wrong, and dropped off in the heart of your hated rival gang's territory with limited cash and no weapons. What will you do?

Not a game for kids... Includes very strong language, graphic violence, drug use, and sexuality.
