Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is a sandbox-style action-adventure
computer and video game developed by Rockstar North. It is the third 3D
game in the Grand Theft Auto video game franchise and fifth original
game overall. Originally released for the PlayStation 2 in October
2004, the game has since been ported to the Xbox and Microsoft Windows,
and has received wide acclaim and high sales figures on all three
platforms. It is one of the highest selling PlayStation 2 games, with
sales estimated around the 14 million mark. San Andreas was preceded by
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Set in 1992, the game revolves around the main character, Carl “CJ”
Johnson returning home to Los Santos after learning of his mother’s
murder. CJ finds his family and his old gang, the Grove Street
Families, in disarray. Over the course of the game, CJ gradually
unravels the plot behind his mother’s murder while reestablishing his
gang and exploring his own business ventures.

Much like the previous entries in the Grand Theft Auto series, San
Andreas’s critical and commercial success has not been without
controversy; explicit hidden content in the game resulted in the game’s
re-rating and subsequent removal from many retailers’ shelves.
