      49
    • It'd be better if it had a better framerate but it's still good fun.
      34
    • The game itself is generally good but the graphics/framerate ruin it.

    • Average.
      35
    • It's not great and I wouldn't recommend it.

Yes, there's already another of this type of topic but here's a poll to keep track of the numbers. smile.gif

 

Obviously only vote / comment if you've actually played the game..

its average. If your a die hard fan you'll enjoy it but if your just a normal fan you'll be dissapointed.

uggh, this thing doesn't feel anything like i was expecting it to. i wanted the original on the snes. feels like a perverted mix of gta3 + gta, rather than a direct port.

Well, if this is like GTA 1 then it should be a true classic remade.

I'd say its above average, because I wasn't expecting anything spectacular but I was quite surprised when i first played it. 6.5/10

Yup, I guess so. Don't think I could ever get used to the game to be quite honest. Maybe if it was more 3D then it would be easier.

I received it as a Christmas gift, I am part way throught Staunton Island.

I probably would have bought it eventually, but not at full price.

 

I generally like it, but I find the lack of landmarks, especially on Portland, makes it difficult to navigate.

 

I also have alot of trouble aiming, by the time your lined up the target is already beating your ass with a baseball bat.

 

I would have prefered a smaller map with richer detail.

3d doesn't make a diff to me.

 

my fav gta in the series is the first one originally released on the super nintendo i believe?

 

i thought this was going to be a direct port (at least i hoped it was)

 

i was expecting monks, and all the awesome sound effects from the first gta.

 

the crowd going oohhhh! when you get run over, that intro voice going " graaaaand theft auto!" right as you first start running around.

 

game was the sh*t!

 

edit: gta advanced has a sh*tty ass frame rate, poor animation and just doesn't feel right.

Personally I think its great. Having the GTA3 formula in a top down version is way better than the lives system the the original had and its way easier to control than the PS1 games.

No, originally on PC and shortly afterwards, PSX.

It's not the greatest. But if you gon on like a long trip and your board and want to play GTA it can satisfy you for the most part.

I just got it yesterday for £20 (about $35-$40 I believe) and traded in some of my old PSone games for it. It's much better than I thought it was going to be. Has anyone else noticed that the majority of the soundtrack is from GTA2? music.gif

 

Also, you just mentioned the PSX. This is probably off-topic, but I just need to ask:

 

The PSX is the new Japanese version of the PS2, with the hard-drive and all that. But some people *cough*EmSixTeen*cough* refer to the PSone/PlayStation as the PSX. What's up with that? wow.gif

the psx was the old big grey playstation out in 1994 or 95, it was then made smaller(psone). the japanes thing you refer to is also called the psx...probably there to confuse people who had an old psx

 

neway on topic... the music in the game was cool... but it is to hard to aim your guns, except for shot gun at closev range, and the controls can be a bit buggy.. but its good for if your bored in school or a car journy or something

What the hell? I've been calling the first version Play Station 1 (The big bulky gray one that I still own) PSX even before people thought there would be a PS2.

Some people have different opinions, but most won't agree with me, because I actually like GTA: Advance, because it's a great time killer, and the frame-rate may be sloppy, but the Gameboy Advance can handle so much. It's good, but some things could be improved (adding driveby if you have an Uzi and press A and B simultaneously, have only certain gangs on certain parts of the island, not all gangs on an island).

 

So far, 8/10. The street races (it's a race with other people, not just you and people trying to run you off the road) and lack of radio hurt the score, along with minor issues. Good work, Rockstar!
