Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Postby DJ_Velocity » Thu Jun 09, 2005 12:21 pm

Being an xbox gamer primarily, I have been waiting for this for MONTHS! Has anybody else gotten a chance to play it yet? Or at least the PS2 and/or PC version? The game is AMAZING! It does to GTA III and GTA VC what they did for GTA I and II. A cool new feature this time around, is the mini games. It has a few differnt mini games this time around, simular in concept to the vigilante missions from the previous games. Included in the mini games are, pool, old school arcade games and a few more (I think, not too sure though, as I have only had it for a day). It seriously is the best game ever made for xbox in my opinion. I know people argue back with the Halo series and the Project Gothem series, saying that they are superior, and graphic's wise, they are... but seriously this game is DOPE! If you havn't gotten a chance to try it out, I highly recommend doing so soon :D

I've got a copy pre-ordered: I'll go collect it tomorrow. Yeah, it's supposed to be pretty good. I like the way that peoples reactions to you change as you change your apperance, and that people have diffrent tastes: so at the begining of the game, being buffed and tatooed to the earholes is good, but towards the end it becomes a liability, and you would be better off with a good suit and a smart car. Clever.

And KOTOR and Outrun2 are both better. :lol:

GTASA on the PC wipes the floor of the PS2 version. Hands down. The graphics are crisper, cleaner, the draw distances better.

Not that surprising, PCs are far superior to consoles.

I'm going to pick up a copy this weekend, I'm not entirely sure if I'll like it. Some people I've talked to said the extra RPG-like content they've added really doesn't work and spoils the game, but I'll see.

Which game is that?


I like the added depth of San Andreas. GTA 3 was fun and all, but after a while I got board of doing missions and stealing cars and wreaking havok can only entertain me for so long. :)

I installed SA today and thought it'd be great but I got a little disappointed.. I don't really know why, I guess it's the missions, they're not that fun.. you ride bikes and spray tags.. not really fun :( so I just drive around eating and training :P trying to get physichally better first and then learn to play well and get to the more fun missions

You get to play games in the army though! Granted they hit you with a taser if you get shot, but still... it's all fun

Small scale delinquency seems so trivial when compared to taking over the world (Civilization), saving a world from evil -over and over again- (Neverwinter Nights and Baldur's Gate I and II), or actually doing something productive in the real world. :)
