This is just a port of the psp version. It is not as good as the original GTA III. The graphics are updated and a new story is all this title offers. They took out all the new features from San Andreas, like swimming, exercising, and eating. The controls seemed a little choppy and slow. I would not recommend this for a first time GTA player. Check out San Andreas for your first time. If you are a fan then you should at least rent this and check it out.
