No Longer Alone In the Streets
San Andreas: Multiplayer turns Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas from a single player game into a Massively Multiplayer Online game. The mod still requires the original and mod-free game copy, particularly V1.0, in order to play it. It enables local area network or online access with more than 1000 players logged in. Players can either set up their own server or join one. Server themes range from free-roaming to strict role-playing. Every game mechanics of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is still retained. Players still control C.J. by default. They can still perform the basic movements, attacks, shooting and driving. The in-game HUB remains the same, except the upper-left portion of the screen is dedicated for the chat window. This game mod allows the creation of custom scripted game modes for a selected server. There are wide selections of game modes that players can try. These game modes are absent from the original single-player mode and can provide hours of fun. The player character model can also be changed from the default one so that they don’t look too uniform. There are also custom guns, vehicles, and even in-game HUD that are not found from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Players can also join the official SA-MP forums where they can discuss topics in relation with the game mod. They can read mod updates, ask for help and form groups with like-minded users.
Chaos and Hilarity Ensues
San Andreas: Multiplayer gives what players and GTA fans really want before Grand Theft Auto V existed: an immersive multiplayer GTA experience. Players can expect random violence and unexpectedly funny moments due to the ridiculous mods.
