Rockstar Games has released the 1999 game Wild Metal as a free download on its official site. The game joins 1997's original Grand Theft Auto in its free classic downloads section. Wild Metal is a vehicular combat game, which was developed by DMA Design before it became Rockstar North. The game has been optimised to run on modern PCs and work with up to date graphics drivers from Microsoft. The game was originally available for the Sega Dreamcast (now defunct) as well as the PC. The download weighs in at 170MB and can be accessed at www.rockstargames.com/classics. To be eligible for the free download you must sign up to Rockstar's mailing list. Wild Metal is a 3D strategic vehicular combat game set in a distant land, in which you command armed roving vehicles to disrupt dangerous automated military units that have overtaken the Tehric planetary system. While it flew under the mainstream radar when it was originally released, it was critically acclaimed for its unique yet intuitive control schemes and its massive open world to explore. Force fields, sentries, mines, and other tanks all do their best to stop you from achieving your goal. The other game currently available free on Rockstar games at the moment is the first installment of the Grand Theft Auto series. This criminally minded cars and guns centred action game proved revolutionary addition to 2D gaming. The first 3D version, Grand Theft Auto 3, made as big a splash on its arrival a few years ago. If you are a new fan of the series, perhaps you will be interested in sampling the original version. Grand Theft Auto puts you in the role of a small-time criminal who is looking for a way to make a name for himself in the crime business. He does this by getting on the good side of the local crime boss by stealing cars and carrying out contract killings. There are over 200 different missions like these, taking place in three different cities. The game made headlines on its release because of its innovative use of music and DJ banter. It also innovated by employing free roaming gameplay
