Well, redx you sure are showing your San Andreas fanboyism to the fullest extent well done.
See? You are blinded, every true GTA fan knows that Vice was a step-up from III, you fail to see that because you are a San Andreas fanboy.
III had planes try again
Was the plane easy to fly in III? Did III have helicopters? I think not.
Improved physics? Really? It was the same. Felt the same and moved the same. SA improved the physics so you can't take fall damage from a 1 foot drop.
San Andreas fanboyism. I'd bet a fair amount that you have never played Vice City.
Graphics don't make a game. Why do you see all the hate for IV?
You asked us to state an improvement and we did, and now you're saying that graphics don't make a game, pathetic.
Property Management was the only thing but was only for a few missions.
What the hell are you talking about? You have clearly never played Vice City and continue to show your pathetic San Andreas fanboyism. You could buy properties in Vice City any time.
SA bought something that we use in every GTA game since. 360 camera angle and swimming. Fighting was way better, shooting was way better, a huge map and not a city smaller then Liberty City ( III ). Yes VC is smaller then Liberty City. Take away the beach and you'll see.
I'd never consider SA a revolution despite it having a lot of content, why? Because III was the stepping stone for San Andreas. III is a revolution, we use all the features in III in every GTA game, Did we use SA's RPG character development in IV? No.
Also again you have not played Vice City. Vice City is bigger than III's Liberty City, as you said 'take away the beach from the map' I can take Portland off the map, does that make any sense?
And what about the tons of other improvements I stated which you failed to counter?
