Pretty darn good

I love this app! but Grand Theft Auto III IS about the other side of the law. When not playing the missions, (Some of which can be hard to complete) one can have sex with a prostitiute for more life points.They just sit in the car while the car bumps up and down. (Nothing explicit, it's only implied) The player can go on random killing rampages, though there is almost no blood in the app version. Rough language is peppered throughout the game. I haven't heard any F**ks yet though. You can steal cars, drive boats, and fly a plane. The player can commit suicide with grenades, or by jumping into water that's over the head. All in all, this game is for teens, but they should know that not everything in GTAIII is for the greater good. This game is just ENTERTAINMENT.

Grand Theft Auto

Common sense media is saying a lot of crap. I have watched my 13 year old daughter play this game many times, and I have even played it many times myself. It has no sexual content. There are NO strip clubs. People often confuse this game with GTA 5 which does have strip clubs.

Down with drugs

If you follow the storyline, you work for criminals trying to take DOWN A DRUG COMPANY. Spoiler alert in the end you massacre the entire drug cartel, and rid liberty city of drugs. That's not so bad now is it?

AGE RESTRICTIONS AND REASONS!

This game is rated an 18+ due to Strong Bloody Violence as the main reason. It does also Contain Moderate Language, Mild Sex References and Some Drugs! I am a professional at age ratings and I personally think that the game only deserves a 16+ as nothing in the game is awful! The Violence can seem a little bit disturbing to some but it is not gory, only moderately bloody. The language is suitable for a 12+ and the sex 12+ and the drugs references 12+ but the Violence is okay for 16 maybe even 15+, If your child is 14-18 and wants this game I wouldn't disagree if you are worried about the Violence!!
