Where can I download GTA2?

GTA2 v11.44 (Windows 8.1 compatible*) - [17MB]

I recommend installing to "c:\games" or your documents folder. Installing to "c:\program files" is not a good idea since that folder is often protected by Windows and may prevent GTA2 and GTA2 Game Hunter from writing to the folder. If GTA2 crashes on launch then right click on the icon and select "Run as administrator". The installer doesn't create any desktop shortcuts or start menu items, so you'll have to do that yourself until I update it.

If you want to play GTA2 on Linux, read this guide.

* May require running as admin, changing folder permissions or sacrificing a virgin

There are several mistakes in the manual. The multiplayer section sounds like they are describing GTA1, you can't select a character in GTA2. The error is mentioned on the Xplosiv support site and used to be on the take2games.com support site.
