I've been having performance and various other crashing and graphical issues ever since I bought the game (when it was released). Like many of you, I spent countless hours and days trying tweaks and driver updates and game updates to get things fixed but to really no avail. Then finally, as of a few days ago, the 9.1 Catalyst drivers came out. No more graphical problems, a slight boost to performance and apparently it helped with the memory leaks and stability problems I had with previous drivers (freezing, crashing, BSOD, etc). I could finally enjoy the game without worry.

As of last night, I finally beat the story and all I have to say is I watched the credits with a huge, giddy smile on my face. It was so incredibly worth it. I tip my hat to you Rockstar, I havent felt this satisfied beating a game in ages.

This is a wonderful game. smile.gif

It is indeed a wonderful game, lucky you got it going properly. I'm still having serious stuttering issues after playing for 30 minutes. I just don't want to continue playing like that, it gives me a headache looking at it.

Havent played since i beat story mode at about 75%...
Great game as in great city, graphics, sound, peds but poor story and missions, even with the diferent decisions it doesnt touch the epicness of Mafia (missions and story) and i dont see myself replaying this crappy story anytime soon (if ever). Only the MP keeps IV installed here.

Mafia was a great game and I was ridiculously addicted to it back in the day, but I never played through the story more than once (I tried countless times but I just couldn't get back into it).

Honestly, I think this game matches Mafia or comes pretty damn close when it comes to the story and missions. I felt for Niko at the end of it and with some of the decisions he had to make/I made for him, much like I felt for Tom in Mafia. The graphics and the incredible physics engine and the large, realistic city are just bonus.

Just my thoughts though.

Lucky guy. If only I didn't get the stupid random crashes here I would have beaten it for the second time.

Yea, awesome game, but it's still nowhere near Mafia IMO.

Its funny Im experiencing the quite opposite, for 2 months I have been tweaking and turning every knob in this game, well it has been 2 months of interrupted intercourse, just when I start slapping its arsle and putting my johhny in the honney, Im interrupted by stutter and bugs.
I have it up and running fine now, but I just cant be bothered tickling that old skank again, I will play it in half a year, start a fresh and hope for a little uninterrupted gratification.
