Rockstar Games has now made Grand Theft Auto 2 available to download for free.
Rockstar made the original GTA available to download sometime ago. The original, and now GTA2, have been revamped and remastered to work with today's PCs. However, they do note that the game still may not work correctly, and they cannot take responsibility for any problems caused.
GTA2 was the final game in the series to be 2D for the PlayStation and PC. It was an excellent step-up from the original. Looking back on it now, Rockstar has performed quite an amazing feat by completely transforming the GTA series. It started off with a violent, bloody, exciting game...that had no 'Save' option. It then stayed loyal to its origins with GTA: London, before adding an amazing 3 islands with GTA2.
But then, GTA changed so drastically, it would never be the same again: it went 3D. GTA3 astonished all gamers, and it was a true success, especially for its first time under a new engine. Vice City proved to be even more successful, with incredible missions and tonnes more scope. And then we had San Andreas. The game of all games. The multiple record breaker. In six or seven years, could we see GTA: San Andreas freely available to download from Rockstar Classics? We'll have to wait and see...
