Still plays very well on my average laptop !
on 16 April 2012
This game really takes me back a few years ! I have lots of fond memories of playing this on the old machine that was the Playstation 2.
I wanted to pick this title up on PC for something to play on my laptop when I am away from home (can't take my Xbox 360 everywhere!). I'm running a very average spec laptop on Windows 7, it's not a gaming laptop by any stretch of the imagination. I'm running an Athlon II Dual Core 2.1GB processor, 4GB ram (memory), 64-bit operating system and an ATI Mobility Radeon HD4200 graphics chip.
There was no question of buying the game, only how it would run on my laptop. Got the game, installed in minutes and runs very nicely indeed ! I have to run the draw distance quite low and I haven't had any hectic moments in the game yet but it's all running smoothly. I have a feeling that it may slow down on the bigger fights but that's a small price to pay for playing this amazing game.
I was prepared for the game to look very dated but I am very surprised to see that it still looks pretty fresh. I'm sure that I have hours of fun ahead of me. If you have enjoyed any of the other titles in the GTA series, you need to play this game. If you're an old fan and are making a return to the game, enjoy and dive straight in !!
I hope this review helps a few people who are worried about the performance of their PC's or laptop's, if it's any higher spec than mine then you're golden.
