However, all lauded the level of freedom of action in the game, as well as the soundtrack, these aspects later became traditional strengths of games GTA series. After the release in Europe, the game was released in North America, after  personal computer - on Play Station, and then on the Game Boy Color. Gold mine was found, now it was necessary to develop.

And Rockstar Games have coped with it - one good game in 16 years has grown into a cult series! Modern gaming world cannot be imagined without the Grand Theft Auto it is a unique series of games last (yet) part of which, GTA 5, can be considered a socio-cultural event.
