Ok here is my list of things that i hate the most in GTA 3;
-terrible crap cars with no weight at all and when someone bumps you you just fly like 2 blocks away like a damn paper box, I`m sure you all know that feeling when you have 3, 4 or 5 star wanted level and they just keep bumping you like a freaking bowling bowl until you are wasted.
-not being able to bail out of vehicle
- terribly annoying cop car sirens, i mean that noise is realy realy annoying it goes all the way to your brains
-crazy and unrealistic gang hating on you, especially those fu*cking mafiosi with their shotguns and 1-shot blow up. I mean if i want to get blow up a car with a shotgun i need at least 2 if not 3 shots from close range, but they somehow need only 1 and that from long distance
-retarded and limited vocabulary of gangs, especially colombians and triads it gets on your f*ck*ing nerves when they are like 7 in group all repeating the same sentences. (I know it`s a 2001 game with limits and all but what could be so hard to give them a few more things to say)
-unrealistic voices of gunshots, especially from m16 which sounds more like rattle snake than fully auto gunshots
-mute character. I mean i just can get into a Claude like i could identify with some other protagonists who talk.
-dull and depresive athmosphere of LC in this game altough in LCS wasnt much better either.
These are some of the things that i hate in this game but i still find it good game especially when it was huge break to fully 3D game.
But it is very important which game you started play with. If GTA3 was your first game in 3D era than you will probably love it forever because of all nostalgia but if you played VC, VCS and SA before GTA 3 like myself then you will have really hard time to love it.
I remember when i first started to play GTA3 after SA, VCS and VC, i was like WTF??, that camera angles, first person view and vehicle handling seemed like a disaster for me back then but if you think of it`s release day you got to know that it was a true masterpiece, an unforgetable game for someone who have started 3D era with this game.
Well, i kind of liked it after i forced myself to play it. For the 3.rd and 4.th time i have played it i finnaly started to like it.
