The game featured fleets of space-faring warships which were moved about on a strategic map and led by powerful hero characters with special abilities."

Design Lesson 101: Grand Theft Auto III

GamaS - April 1, 2008


Submitted by Refreshment (33) at 7:50PM PST on April 29, 2008


"Grand Theft Auto III is considered by most to be a landmark in video gaming history. It was one of the first, and certainly the most successful, 3D open-world action game at the time of its release in 2001. By moving away from the 2D world of the previous games and moving to full 3D, Grand Theft Auto III ushered in sets of new interactions that could not have occurred in a 2D setting. It also ushered in a complexity in navigation, which would not exist in a 2D setting."

joystiq.com - April 30, 2008


Submitted by grimlock49 (549) at 9:55AM PST on April 30, 2008


Given the flood of perfect review scores for Grand Theft Auto IV, observant gamers were justifiably surprised when a score of 9.5/10 briefly appeared on Gamespot.com Monday. That surprise turned to confusion in some quarters when the score (which had no accompanying review) was quickly taken down and later replaced with the fifth 10/10 in Gamespot's history (complete with corresponding review text).
