Story progression occurs when the character accepts missions for the various NPCs within the game. These missions are typically associated with the main story, however there are a few instances of minor story arcs also within the game that can add to the overall storyline.
The game also incorporates a new feature where the main character's physical traits such as body type, hairstyle, clothing, etc. can be altered in game. It provides for a more visual approach to character stats such as strength and speed. If you keep CJ fit throughout the game you’ll have far less trouble with missions where you’re on foot.
The controls for this game are quite simple and straightforward which allows the game to be easily accessible. As the game continues the control can even become easier. CJ is capable of gaining experience with various weapons and vehicles so that when he uses them he is far more efficient. He can aim better or even handle a car smoother at higher speeds.
Numerous unlockables are available throughout the game, some of which can be purchased without having to complete any difficult task. However interesting these unlockable may be none ever feel too complicated or necessary for completion of the game which really allows the player to feel more in control of CJ and his world.

In GTA: San Andreas the player assumes the role of Carl "CJ" Johnson fresh home after his mother's death. CJ plans to reorganize his old gang, the Grove Street Families, and uncover the truth about his mother's murder.
The GTA series has come to be known for its highly interactive environments and San Andreas is no different. The free range of movement and camera angles creates a sense of realism for an unusual setting. Committing acts of debauchery has never felt so right as when controlling CJ and seeking revenge on the people who have wronged your family.
Soon after starting the game I have already found myself gleefully exploring the city of Los Santos while trying to avoid being arrested or dying in the all too common car chase with the local authorities. While it might not be all too realistic it makes for a far more interesting experience to have this sort of gameplay within the game.
