Grand Theft Auto: Geoshea Edition is a 2000 open world action-adventure video game developed by DMA Design (now Rockstar North) in the United Kingdom and published by Rockstar Games, along with Universal Interactive Studios and Konami. It is the third installment in the Geoshea series and a spin-off to the Grand Theft Auto game series. Originally released for the Universal Odyssey in May 2000 as part of Universal's initial wave of Odyssey launch titles. It was re-released in Europe only on April 13, 2005. The game has since been released for the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo GameCube in December 2001. A Xbox port was announced, but it was cancelled. A PC version was released on December 19, 2001 and as a downloadable freeware on February 23, 2014 (A Japanese version of the downloadable freeware was announced to be released in fourth-quarter 2014 but the production stopped). The game was succeeded by Grand Theft Auto III in 2001.
GTA: Geoshea Edition is similar of that GTA: San Andreas. The game is set in the semi-fictional state of San Andreas (based on California and Nevada) and its three metropolitan cities: Los Santos (based on Los Angeles), San Fierro (based on San Francisco), and Las Venturas (based on Las Vegas). Set in 1992. Like other games in the series, Geoshea Edition is composed of elements from driving games and third-person shooters, and features open world gameplay, in which players can interact with the game world at their leisure. The game introduced several gameplay elements to the series, including gang wars, car tuning, and extensive player customization.
This game received more universal acclaim than 666 The Street, and was actually, at first, the best selling Universal Odyssey game until the bundled game for it in the US, Frantic Mayhem Royale, was released, with more than 21 million copies sold as of September 2005. After this, a planned sequel, titled Grand Theft Auto: Bikini Bottom, was cancelled. A CGI-animated film, titled Geoshea Theft Auto, was released in theaters in 2009 and was announced in 2000. A sequel was released in 2012. A Brazilian video game by Olivira (known as ressubd on YouTube), GTA SA Evolution is similar to Grand Theft Auto: Geoshea Edition, but unlike Geoshea Edition, Evolution has all the CLEO mods, and skins (except for Stuart the Minion, Crash Bandicoot and others). A high-definition remake, titled Grand Theft Auto: Geoshea Edition HD, is in the works and set to be released for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U and PC in 2015.
The gameplay is similar to that from the next game, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The core gameplay consists of elements of a third-person shooter and a driving game, affording the player a large, open world environment in which to move around. On foot, the player's character is capable of walking, eating, running, sprinting, swimming, climbing (the first GTA game in which swimming and climbing are possible) and jumping as well as using weapons and various forms of hand to hand combat. Players can drive a variety of vehicles, including automobiles, buses, semis, boats, fixed wing aircraft, helicopters, trains, tanks, motorcycles and bikes. Players may also import vehicles rather than steal them.
The open, non-linear environment allows players to explore and choose how they wish to play the game. Although storyline missions are necessary to progress through the game and unlock certain cities and content, they are not required as players can complete them at their own leisure. When not taking on a storyline mission, players can free-roam and look around the cities, eat from the restaurant, or cause havoc by attacking people and causing destruction. Creating havoc can attract unwanted and potentially fatal attention from the authorities. The more chaos caused, the stronger the response: police will handle "minor" infractions (attacking pedestrians, pointing guns at people, stealing vehicles, manslaughter, etc.), whereas SWAT teams, the FBI, and the military respond to higher wanted levels.
The player can partake in a variety of optional side missions that can boost their character's attributes or provide another source of income. The traditional side missions of the past games are included, such as dropping off taxi cab passengers, putting out fires, driving injured people to the hospital and fighting crime as a vigilante. New additions include burglary missions, pimping missions, truck and train driving missions requiring players to make deliveries on time, and driving/flying/boating/biking schools, which help players learn skills and techniques to use in their corresponding vehicles.
Not all locations are open to the player at the start of the game. Some locales, such as pay 'n spray, gyms, and shops, become available only after completing certain missions. Likewise, for the first portion of the game, only Los Santos and its immediate suburbs are available for exploration; unlocking the other cities and rural areas again requires the completion of certain missions. If the player were to try travel in locked locations they would end up attracting the attention of SWAT teams.
Unlike GTA III and Vice City, which needed loading screens when the player moved between different districts of the city, San Andreas has no load times when the player is in transit. The only loading screens in the game are for cut-scenes and interiors. Other differences between San Andreas and its predecessors include the switch from single-player to multiplayer Rampage missions (albeit not in the PC version), and the replacement of the 'hidden packages' with spray paint tags, hidden camera shots, horseshoes, and oysters to discover.
The camera, fighting, and targeting controls were reworked to incorporate concepts from another Rockstar game, Manhunt, including various stealth elements, as well as improved target crosshairs and a target health indicator which changes from green to red to black depending on the target's health. The PC version of the game implements mouse chording; the player has to hold the right mouse button to activate the crosshairs, and then click or hold at the left mouse button to shoot or use an item, such as a camera.
In addition, players can swim and climb walls for the first time in the series. The ability to swim has a great effect on the player as well, since water is no longer an impassable barrier that kills the player (although it is possible to drown). For greater firepower, players can also wield dual firearms or perform a drive-by shooting with multiple gang members. Due to the size of San Andreas, a waypoint reticle on the HUD map can be set, aiding the player in reaching a destination.
Same as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
The game has you control Carl "CJ" Johnson from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas by default, while all other characters are the CLEO skin mods for the "Skin Selector". For example, Stuart the Minion from Despicable Me is a playable CLEO skin mod.

Grand Theft Auto: Geoshea Edition was originally exclusively developed for the PlayStation, under the title Geoshea n' Roll!. The game was first shown at the E3 1999 as a technical demo designed to show off the graphical capabilities of the Universal Odyssey. The full motion video footage had scenes seen in later trailers and commercials for the game, but never used. This includes Stuart, holding a rocket launcher, dancing. Soon after its creation, Universal decided to make it into a full game. Grand Theft Auto: Geoshea Edition was later shown at the E3 in 2000 with the Universal Odyssey console. Universal Interactive Studios, Konami and Rockstar Games offered a playable tournament of the games for fans in which a Odyssey and Grand Theft Auto: Geoshea Edition were prizes for the winner.
In March 2002, Grand Theft Auto: Geoshea Edition became part of the Platinum Selects, a marketing label used by Universal to promote video games that have sold more than a million copies. In 2004, Universal bundled the game with the Odyssey for $99.99.
On May 21, 2000, Universal released a 30-minute special tutorial video, titled Grand Theft Auto: Geoshea Edition - The Prefect Video, was released on DVD and VHS. The 30-minute video shows how to play Geoshea Edition. On January 4, 2014, a official website was made by Garcia, which includes download links, skins and more. On March 10, 2014, a quiz for Grand Theft Auto: Geoshea Edition was made by Gabriel Garcia, the creator of the game. Garcia made a Google Sites website about the game. There no pages yet, Garcia is working the site. On March 23, 2011, a user named "DAFFYDAFFY" posted a forum called "GTA GEOSHEA EDITION?" on CS.RIN.RU. He talked about the game that is a mod to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
On May 4, 2009, Universal Pictures and 2BIG3k Animation released Geoshea Theft Auto, a computer-animated film based upon the game. It was directed by Geo G. (credited as Gabriel Garcia in the game) and co-directed by Adam Fowler. It is 2BIG3k's second theatrical feature film and the studio's first film to have a PG-13 rating, it was also 2BIG3k's first computer-animated feature film. The film went on to gross $93 million worldwide in theaters, making it a box-office hit while produced on a modest $82 million budget. The film received positive reviews from film critics, It was a critical and commercial success.
A sequel, titled Geoshea Theft Auto 2, was released on May 25, 2012. It is produced by the same team that was behind the first film - along with directors Geo G. and Adam Fowler, writers David Jones and Mike Dailly, and it is based on an original idea, where Stuart and his friends are looking for a criminal called Amzi Mopplens (The Cheat Master) who makes people to have cheats. Most of the main cast will reprise their roles. The new cast also includes Gregg Berger as Amzi Mopplens, Charlie Bright as Corlyle Jones and Jake T. Austin as Red Pocket.
Faizon Love, the voice of Sweet for the first two films, said in November 2013 that a third film in the series is in the works. In June 2014, it was announced that Geoshea Theft Auto 3 will be released on May 19, 2017.
A sequel was announced in June 2000 under the title Grand Theft Auto: Bikini Bottom, and was set to be released for Universal Odyssey, PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube and Xbox in 2002, but it was cancelled in October 2001 due to development problems. As the title suggests, it would've taken place in Bikini Bottom, and possibly have featured more SpongeBob SquarePants characters. An early footage gameplay was leaked in March 2013. A build does exist, but it's very buggy in the graphics department, possibly because it got cancelled before they could fix graphic issues. It also only can come in Spanish and English (The English ones are more rare).
After the sequel was cancelled, Sam Garcia and Michael Wildshill (the programmers of the latter game) went on to create Frantic Mayhem Royale.

Garcia confirmed in October 2011 that a downloadable freeware of Grand Theft Auto: Geoshea Edition was in the works. The game was originally planned to release around Fall 2013, but it was delayed to 2014. It was going to be a mod for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
In March 2012, Garcia had downloaded the PC version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas with some CLEO skin mods with the "Skin Selector" like Homer Simpson, Crash Bandicoot, SpongeBob SquarePants and more.
12 videos were also made on YouTube, which uploaded on December 9, 2012 to August 4, 2013.

Please download it! It's Geoshea World! =D It had Spongebob, and more! CLEO included!", but there's no download. In October 2013, a user commented and said "Can you upload it at another GTA Website? Because in GTA Garage the admin is too lazy, heres other gta website: GTA Inside GTA Gaming". Now, the mod is removed by the admin because there is no download links for the mod.
In October 2013, Garcia announced that the downloadable freeware was not in development for now. On December 7, 2013, Garcia announced that the downloadable freeware would began production on January 1, 2014.

It was only released on PC. It wasn't made by the companies behind Grand Theft Auto: Geoshea Edition, Universal Interactive Studios and Konami.
In February 2014, Gabriel Garcia, the creator of Grand Theft Auto: Geoshea Edition, said that:
- "I thought it was a RIP-OFF to my game GTA Geoshea Edition. Olivira didn't had Crash Bandicoot and the Minion in his game! Isn't that weird? WTF with these people who liked GTA SA EVOLUTION? I saved one of the pictures of GTA SA EVOLUTION on YouTube and it was hidden pictures. Okay, I changed my mind. GTA SA EVOLUTION reminds ME of my game. I thinking that it was okay to me."

- The commercial is now said to be rare. It was secretly hidden in post-2000 models of the Universal Odyssey if you did "Left-Left-Right-Right-Up-Down-Down". This unlocked the Trailers menu, which included the trailer.
- In the American and European versions of the game, it had a 4 player mode, but in the Japanese version, it was replaced by a 2 player mode.
- The game is known in Japan as Grand Theft Auto: Geo! Madness Gone Wild! (グランド·セフト·オート：ジオ！狂気はワイルドゴーン！, Gurando· sefuto· ōto: Jio! Kyōki wa wairudogōn!).

- Goofy had turned into a blank Kirby texture (later he turned back to normal).
