San Andreas Crime City is an open world crime simulator game where players play the part of a gangster in a crime-ridden city. The object of the game is to build a criminal empire, eliminate rivals and climb to the top of the criminal hierarchy without attracting the attention of the cops.
San Andreas Crime City has a main storyline - players take part in criminal activities to make money, this can be spent on guns and knives to combat enemies and take over new parts of the city and unlock missions. In addition to the main storyline, players can take part in mini-missions where they can steal cars, helicopters and jets. The environment allows players the freedom to act as they like, however, the more players rampage uncontrollably, the more determined the police become to curtail their activities. The city environment has a minimap which allows players to navigate from one mission to another, success in these missions adds to the player's overall progress in the main mission.
San Andreas Crime City is a reasonable attempt to produce a crime simulator in the vein of similar paid games. It is playable, but it does not have the scope of many games in this particular genre. The storyline is interesting, and the variety of missions is good for a free game, however, the graphics are extremely basic.
