Grand Theft Auto: Orient Express

I’ve never played a sandbox game before, where you have a giant virtual environment that you can drive around mugging grandmothers and running red lights, so last night I started Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. I wanted to experience its mix of non-linear gameplay and vehicular mayhem.

In the first hour of play, I’ve watched a lot of cut-scenes, interrupted by five-minute interludes where I ride a bike while following someone.
