Fight against gangs in San Andreas while driving some of the best cars in the city to earn money.

Those who have played San Andreas know the story of Carl Johnson. He travels from his home on the East Coast to the West Coast so that he can help members of his gang. If you plan on beating the game in one sitting, you should plan on spending several hours, as there is a lot of back story given and a lot of challenges to face. Once you start to understand where to go in the city and the fastest ways to get there, the game doesn't take as long to complete as the initial run-through.

Your goal in the gang, while playing as Johnson, is to defeat the other gangs in San Andreas. They will do everything possible to get in your way. There are also a few cops who will try to stop you from robbing banks and completing other tasks that earn respect from your gang members and rivals.

Some of the challenges that you face are on mountain roads while others are in casinos in Las Vegas. The tasks that you have to complete in the casinos are probably the hardest, as you have to use stealth movements to get past security. One of the changes in the game is that Johnson can be customized in any way possible. You can cut his hair, add tattoos, change his clothes and even give new details to his car. There are over 200 cars available, some that are faster than others, which is something to think about when trying to get away from rival gangs and when completing robberies.
