4.0 out of 5 stars Only the best, 3 Dec 2004
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PS2) (Video Game)
You get a lot of people saying that this GTA is the same as all of it's predecessors. I can tell you that in part it is but then it has to be. For example: Fifa is always football, Gran Turismo is always racing. This game is doing missions for people, only this time they're your homies. As has been said in a lot of the other reviews, this game is a lot bigger than GTA: Vice City. Each island is around the same size as the whole game on VC. A lot of new cars are also involved and in particular cars you can do pimping missions as you could and still can do the vigilante missions in police vehicles. There are also new weapons such as the spray can which can blind opponenets for a while, enough to kill them while they're covering their eyes, and there is the shovel and also the fire extinguisher which can suffocate people. As well as new cars, there are new planes. From previous games, there is still the Dodo but now there are others such as skimmers (float on the water) and Shamals (private jets). You can also do pilot lessons where you learn how to do a clean landing instead of bouncing back up and how to keep control when tilting for a more effective turn. What does annoy me are Big Smoke's missions. Most of them are on motorbikes where you just drive while a guy on the back shoots and when the enemy gets away, he blames it on you because he can't shoot. Some good features (which are not in the previous games) are eating to improve fitness (eat too much and CJ (the main character) will get fat), Going to the GYM for a workout, going to the tattoo parlour, and getting a haircut. An improvement on what you could do in the last game is the ability to choose what you wear by going into a shop and the clothes that you were wearing before go back to your house in the wardrobe. The main thing that you can do this time is (once you've received enough respect) recruit your own homies which you can tell to stay where they are or to follow you. They can come in handy for particular missions. I only gave this game 4 stars because it just takes too long to get from A to B.
