Oh god that mission was awful. Why did Tommy need an RC Helicopter to place the bombs? He could have used his hands and legs ffs...
But those RC Helicopters control just like a regular Maverick would control...Thus, if you can fly a Helicopter, the RC Chopper is no different. I still can't see how this was trouble for some people. PC is a different story, never played one single PC game ever for 1 minute of my life, so I can't speak. But PS2 is so easy with this mission. If you can fly a helicopter, you can pass the mission. It's that simple...
I was joking.
But that mission is/was terrible and whoever designed it should never be allowed to code a video game ever.
SA's missions were pretty hard too although I suppose that's mostly to do with the fact that they were poorly written. (I'm looking at you Wrong side of the tracks).
Wrong Side of the Tracks? You just drive the AP Sanchez (That's right, the Sanchez is BP, DP, EP, and FP) a bit away from the train. The closer you are to the train, Smoke or Ryder, or whoever the f*ck is riding with you, can't shoot the guys on the train. The farther away you are, Smoke easily can kill those guys quickly. It's all about finding the right location and distance away from the train, that's all. Nothing to it, really...
San Andreas is the hardest GTA, imo. (without cheats).
Hard missions, gang wars that needs some caution, CJ's health bar could be depleted easily in Los Santos chaos.
But the hardest mission in GTA history is in GTA VCS. (Domestobot in Menendez Mansion). Oh, man this mission drives me crazy!
That mission with the Robot is "unique" but it's not really special or hard to say the least. You just click a few buttons on the controller and you pass the mission. It's very easy. I won't lie, though, but for every GTA game and missions etc, I view a Youtube video before doing it, but by doing that, I do everything first try.
VCS overall, though, gave me some trouble here and there. Since April I re-did all 5 3D Era games (III, VC, SA, LCS, VCS) over to 100%, so I am used to all this stuff now a days. I always have 0 Cheats, 0 Deaths, 0 Busted, 0 Missions Failed. The games themselves are easy enough, so I gotta challenge myself or I'll fall asleep basically...
I beat IV, TBOGT and V without too much trouble. It's the controls of the old GTAs that make them difficult for me. I think if I had played the PS2 GTAs when they came out instead of a good ten years later, I would have found them easier.
IV does have some missions that aggrivated me at first, but they became a lot easier on my second playthrough.
LOLOL...I hear ya. See, I started with III. So I am so used to the 3D Controls and actually HATE the HD Controls. Luckily, GTA IV + Episodes allows me to change the Controller Type back to "Classic" so it makes is very similar to the 3D Controls, at least for driving vehicles. V forces everyone to get used to the stupid new controls. I don't like them at all. Try going back and forth from the controls and you'll have a problem. I didn't play V in 6 months now, since March and the 3D Era Controls and Classic Controls on IV + Episodes is all I know pretty much. I am dreading going back to V and hitting X for the gas, meanwhile it's the f*cking handbrake. Rockstar flip flopped everything. Logic? None.
I'll never understand what makes this mission so hard for almost everyone.
That's what I am saying. It's not like the RC Monster Trucks in LCS which are impossible to handle. The RC Chopper in VC flies like any ordinary Maverick, basically. Can't fly a Helicopter?
