Even though San Andreas has been rated Mature, it didnít occur to me to find out how violent it really was. After playing it for a couple of hours, it got me thinking; almost all of the activities and actions performed by the character can be done in real life. For example, hacking a person to death seems so easy just as much as killing a cop in just one shot using a shotgun. I just hope nobody goes around trying them as I, myself found it very much addicted to the game. Letting children play this sort of a game should not be allowed, unless monitored.
An interesting feature I find in San Andreas is where the player has to maintain the fitness level of the main character (Carl Johnson). Eating at a fast-food revives his health, but on the other side makes him put on weight. And yes it does affect his performance. A bigger CJ wonít be able to run as fast as a slimmer version of him, nor will he be able to climb higher walls and so on. Thatís where the gym comes into use, running on the treadmill or riding the stationary bike should get him back in shape in no time. The part I like most about the gym is being able to build muscles that he could knock down a person in just one punch. Or run away from the cops, faster.
