IGN seems to be slipping, either that or this really is the best PS2 game ever.

I'd have to judge for myself >.>

If they had not of been bribed, I'm sure it would of gotten lower.

Edit : Look at the hands of the characters! They're solid blocks like in Vice City!

no it aint. They upped the polly counts and added new effects for the xbox version. It is a definate improvement over both the ps2 & pc versions... not to mention that the coding of the PC port was VERY sloppy. I guess if you had a monster PC it was ok (and it will probably run fine today) but you'd still get better graphics on the xbox.

off to read review.... (though i'm currently playing GTA3 and have Vice City waiting once i finish, so i don't need it just yet and can wait for the xbox version...) :D

This is a f*cking ****, now im really starting to hate xbox. Anyway i like the thing that if you dont move your character will get fat and all that things that give the game a little of rpg.

Yes it is, GTA: San Andreas is better on PC, customizable resolution, modify it, Xbox suks because it copies all the other system games(only Halo is Xboxs trademark) and MIcrosoft wanted to join the fun and try to make lots of money and what not:p

is it as glitchy as VC because I can not pass one level very early in the game because of the way the it is. I swear...if someone passed it they were damn lucky...

So basically....gun control and the ability to effectively control the weapon without it sucking from jerkyness..


and no....its not me without the steady hand :)

Just cos xbox sucks doesn't mean the xbox version of the first two gta games isn't the best out there. Ok, you may be in a lower resolution than the PC version, but the graphics are much better (new lighting effects, high polygon models, etc..), the framerate is smoother and the car controls are better. I will admit that the on foot controls are better on the PC though, but this isn't really a huge factor.

As for GTS:SA, who knows what will be the best version.... probably the one that gets released last.

PS/ I have a 2nd hand modded xbox that i use mainly as a video/audio jukebox... so microsoft isn't making anything off me. So you don't have to go off on another anti-ms, anti x-box rant... :D
----------------
As for the game, it seems most people love it, but a few hate the fact they are forced to go through the RPG missions to unlock all the content, as they really just want to roam around freely and have fun.

I like the Double Pack for XBox than the PS2 version. Graphics somewhat better, and polished. And EBGames have still not shipped my game!

I saw the Double Pack at Target for $25.
And saw the strategy guide for Andreas, ITS LIKE 300 PAGES LONG! Its as big as the big Morrowind S-guide

Well, I had the Xbox DP, but sold it. It's at Gamestop for $20, and I got it today, it was tempting. I didnt finish either game yet, so I figure I wanted em.

Same here. I'll get it once it comes to Xbox. I like the PS2 controls better, but I like everything else about the Xbox version.

Hey everyone! 10 min till I head home - can't wait to try this game out...though ...I may have to with-hold because I could end up playing it all night.

still havent' bought an X box.....

Ps2 baby

From what I'e read, PC version is coming out 2005, and XBox isn't listed. I don't see the logic in not releasing an XBox version because the Double pack solds lots of copies...

Not yet achieved for the 3d series what gta2 achieved for the 2d series.

The game is much as you would expect. All the gimmicky additions are cool for the first day or so but the coolness wears off pretty soon. I have to say though that the gym idea is good and well executed. Like I said the game is as you would expect, still not much improvement over GTA3 (for me and many others, GTA3 is still the best of the 3d, mainly because of atmosphere etc.). Bit of a cashcow but the change overfrom the previous 2 is enough to keep you playing forever and have a great time.

I sound very anti-gta but i love it as much as anyone does, just don't like this cash-cowness of vice city and now san andreas. :P

9.2 from me ;)

Pretty fun game. Haven't had a lot of time to play with it though. :(

I think its pretty hard. Not much of a difference from the last one. I returned the game and will persue my Vice City game. I didn't see too much different than the last GTA that would make me shell out another 49.99.

My copy gets in today!

But I've been watching kmy friend play it, and it's awesome. He's been playing for about a week now, and he's just now about to leave the redneck countrysides. I can't wait.

From what I've heard the difficulty adjusts to your level. Or something like that.

balony --- some of those missions are pretty tough!

I've been playing it for hours. It's pretty awesome. The missions weren't that hard.

I just wish the radar wasn't so small in the corner...

And Shan... I'm sorry I disagreed... that Beach Party mission is a major f**king pain in my behind. Whoever put in the DDR idea in this game should be shot.

I just hate the damn blips that they want you to follow. Sometimes when they are yellow or white I can't see the darned things on my 27 inch screen :). I'm blind..... I found I had an easier time passing the missions if I did a dry run after I screwed up the first time so I could memorize the paths to go. I also hated when you go to either do a drive by or what have you and the darned cops happen to be right there! errr!

i hate how the ai's still dumb. i walk down the street and a bunch of gangmembers start shooting me in front of a cop and the cop does squat, then when i shoot back, the cop goes after me! wtf!
