Added info on mobile release of the game
== Storyline ==
Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in his hometown, Los Santos, San Andreas. Now, it's the early 90s, and he's got to get back home. His [[Beverly Johnson|mother]] has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster. On his return to the [[Grove Street|neighborhood]], a couple of corrupt cops frame him for the homicide of a [[Ralph Pendelbury|police officer]]. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and take control of the streets.
== Gameplay ==
San Andreas is similarly structured to the previous two games in the series. The core gameplay consists of elements of a third-person shooter and a driving game, affording the player a large, open environment in which to move around. On foot, the player's character is capable of walking, running, swimming (the first GTA game in which diving is possible), limited climbing and jumping, as well as using weapons and various forms of hand to hand combat. Players can operate a variety of vehicles, including automobiles, boats, airplanes, helicopters, trains, tanks, motorcycles and bicycles. Players may also import vehicles rather than steal them. CJ is Grand Theft Auto's most customizable [[Protagonist|protagonist]] due to the possibility in-game to change his clothes, tattoos, hairstyle and even his body mass in which he can be fat, skinny or muscular. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas also reintroduces over-the-top-gameplay seen in games such as [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[The Ballad of Gay Tony]], and [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]].
