5.0 out of 5 stars Thank the lord for Rockstar North, 30 Oct 2004
Quite simply, ITS MASSIVE. I played it non-stop the day i got it and i've covered an area i would reckon equivelant to the size of Vice City and 60% of the map remains undiscovered! You know all the details, your CJ your back to revive your gang and avenge the death of your mother, so no need for more of that. Anyways, i don't have the time or words!
There are bikes, street cleaners, Choppers, motorbikes and i believe aeroplanes, helicopters. TRACTORS, there are so many vehicles in this game you could probably waste a good couple of days messing around with them, thats without going into the customising. You can add alloys, bumpers, colours, nitro, hydraulics. Plus the handling is a damm sight better than in vice city, and since it was pretty ok this is a revelation.
Talking, as i was, about customisation, you can have beards, Elvis hair, B.A HAIR ( y'know B.A Baracus ). AWESOME. tatttos are there for the choosing, chains, tracksuits, jeans. The possibilities are endless.
Then there is the 'keep fit' element. Its strange at first, having to keep and eye on your muscle and stamina, but the excercises that you complete are so intuitive that you can't help but feel they add a certain 'something' to the game.
The visuals are awesome, the sounds are impressive. Pop-up's present but in a game of this size that streams off the disk you can allow some 'minor' flaws. Loading times are vastly improved.
I could go on but i won't since i'm off to play this awesome game some more!
Buy this game, you won't regret it. Just make sure you get it when you've got plenty o spare time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicam on a portable!!!!!!!, 13 Jan 2004
Having spent 10 years with a standard mono portable, this was a revelation. I had been planning on going budget to replace my old set but was attracted by the list of features on the Philips set, i am not dissapointed in the slightest. The picture is a good as you will get on a portable and the sound is top notch. Having said that the 'incredible surround' feature is a bit disconcerting and not all that pleasant to listen to. The radio is great and simple to use. On the box it says 'plug and play' and it means it. I had it out the box plugged in and was flicking through channels within five minutes. This is worth every penny, no question.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheer genius, 13 Jan 2004
I was after an MP3 player, thank god i ended up with this little cracker. For the price you get everything you need to get listening within half an hour. It really is that easy, the sonic stage software takes a few minutes to install and its not as hard to use as some make out. In fact its simple to take tracks from different discs pop them onto the 'music drive' copy and paste them into one playlist and transfer them all onto the mini disc player via the supplied USB cable. The sound quality is top notch, though i would reccomend investing in some headphones , the cable between the phones and the in line remote is stupidly short rendering the clip on the back virtually useless. I have had the player a month and have listened to it endlessly from two and half hours worth of charging.
All in all i cannot reccomend this player enough, it does what it says on the tin. Excellent Sony, well done.
