There are some missions that feature your character in a first-person shooter format, which basically offers the same visual style of that in the third-person view. I only mention this to foreshadow the different modes of play (which Iíll get to in a little bit).
GTA: San Andreas also offers some big Hollywood names for the voiceovers. Actors like Samuel L. Jackson, James Woods, and Ice T give the game an added realism, as do many other voices. Other elements that keep things entertaining are all of the weapon sounds and explosions. All are pretty standard, but theyíre also a necessary component to the GTA series. But what would San Andreas be without the radio stations? Since the game takes place in the 90s, the music has a nice variety of all those classic songs from a decade ago. Songs from Ice Cube, NWA, and Public Enemy (to name a few) take you back to a day of old-school rap.
