2.0 out of 5 stars GTA falls on its face, 11 Jun 2005
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - Limited Edition (PC DVD) (Video Game)
If you are reading this, chances are you are looking forward to this game.
I know. I was in the same position until today.
Now, i feel 30 could have gotton me so much more.
Let me give you my specs
2.1 Ghz Processor, 128Mb RAM, Geforce 4 graphics- Pretty mid level
What I had to set SA to to lose jerkiness;
Draw Distence: Low
Resolution: 725x520x32
Anti-analising: off
With all that talk of better graphics and draw distence since October, this has left me angry.
Sound is worst.
I can't get my character to talk other than in Induction cut-scenes, and the radio stations consist of rap, rap, and more bloody rap.
Even if they would talk, dialogue consists of F- you, F-that, and shut your effing mouth. Hope eldery relatives aren't staying over.
Gameplay is best left forgotton. After a frustrating hard level, very early on, a person you are meant to protect, leaps out the car, and starts punching the bonnet, while the occupants are shooting her.
Restart.
After that appalling mess, it's a low-rider competion, something less fun then a parents funeral. It never explains what your meant to do, and a zero point score. That pile of rubbish caused me to die a little inside.
It's been 9 months since GTA was released on PlayStation 2, and it's difficult to see what's been improved other than a nicer instruction manuel.
If you have a high-spec machine with a joypad, get this.
If not, go for the smaller, but easily superior, Vice City
