Incredibly smooth driving
Yes it is - the one and only Grand Theft Auto by BMG is on the site. If you don't know what GTA is, let me just say that it is the first part of most sold game series in the world. After the initial GTA, 5 more sequels were released.
In GTA you play a small time crook that can either do jobs for the bosses in the underworld or just act kamikaze crazy and kill everyone in sight. In order to complete the game, and advance to larger cities with better opportunities, you have to complete tasks such as robbing cars, blowing up police stations or killing someone. The list is endless.
To complete each level (city) you have to collect a certain amount of points which you get by accomplishing various missions. So, if you want to be quick in completing the game, do the missions. On the other hand, killing a lot of people and stealing cars is much more fun!
Every crook's worst nightmare is being chased by the cops, which you certainly will be if you kill every moving thing. However, this is one of the most fun parts in the game. Stealing a car in front of the cops, followed by a sick car chase is so much fun, you just can't believe it until you have tried it. If you stay alive long enough, doing as much harm as you can do, you will end up with the National Guard on your tail.
Now, the best part of the game, which is totally sweet, is the multiplayer option. In the multiplayer death match option you play against the other players, and gather points. The amount of points needed to win can be modified and any city can be chosen. In the death match option you can either just kill innocent people who are taking Sunday walks, or start a "Gang war" against the other player(s). You don't get much more points for killing another player, but you can brag about it here on the Abandonia.com forum, in the multiplayer section ;)
The graphic in the game is great. For example, when you make a 180 degrees handbrake turn over a dead body, the brake marks will be red. There are lots of colors which make the game look really alive. There all kinds of different cars that you will encounter. You can steal taxis, fire-trucks, police cars, motorbikes, sport-cars, and so on. The sound effects are really good. Brake sounds and a police-radio hum in the background all the time. The Interface is filled with bad language which is just downright funny. The only downside of the game are the controls which are pretty hard to master. This is mostly due to the bird-perspective view, which is somewhat irritating. That is the only reason why this game got a four out of five mark!
