back when the x-box and pc version were announced, there were a bunch of ps2 fanboys running around saying its going to a sub-par port of a great ps2 game, because its meant to be on the ps2, well this is here to adress them:

 

Magazines you can actually make out. is that even possbible in a video game? tounge.gif

 

mags0gl.th.jpg

 

 

Note the actual reflection of CJ in the floor of the resturant? do ya? huh? and 82 frames per second and 1600x1200 resolution, is that even legal?

 

reflect1eb.th.jpg

 

 

so for all of you who thought the pc version would be nothing special compared to the ps2 version, think again

No sh*t sherlock, of course the graphics are better on pc, what did you expect? Apart from the graphics, is there any other major improvement over the PS2 version? (Apart from mods)

For the (shameful) record, as I said in another post, I actually purchased a PS2 to play this game, but after days of frustration (couldn't get used to controller, couldn't make out anything on the mini-map, bad graphics, incredibly bad jaggies [i.e., no anti-aliasing], etc.), I finally give up and decided to wait for the PC version.

 

Man, am I so glad I waited! inlove.gif

 

I'm not knocking the PS2, and yes, generally speaking console ports are things to be avoided, but Rockstar always does right by us PC gamers. colgate.gif

 

The only thing I don't like about this game is its music and its heavy emphasis on rap and such. (I just don't like rap music. Sorry. sad.gif) But that's OT and for another thread I guess.

i guess i should start using my [/sarcasm] tags more often.

 

the main improvements:

1. graphics

2. modability

3. custom sound tracks

4. much better packaging. the pc version comes in a little hardcover book. very classy

5. customization of controls

Sip you do know that the PS2 also had reflections in most interiors of CJ? So that's not really a valid "new" eye-candy. Yeah it looks better but I'd suggest you turn your brightness up as that is extremly dark.

Heh, I'm actually quite disappointed with the way the game looks...

 

Been playing Half Life 2 for the longest time now, and have been looking at videos/screenshots of Battlefield 2 for just about as long...

 

I was, well, less than impressed with the graphical detail of this game... But then again, looks like they're using the same engine... And I'd rather have more game content that looks a little crappy, than excellent graphics and one mission to complete... smile.gif

 

peace.

Had you not looked at a screenshot of the game anytime... ever? It's been crystal clear from the first San Andreas screenshot that it wasn't that good looking.

Funny, just a few days ago I saw someone posting about 'whining people who where expecting graphics a la HL2 and the like'. Has it ever occured to you that the GTA map is insanly large and the engine has to process an immense number of things at the same time? And also, have you looked at the system requirements of GTA: SA and does of HL2?

 

Do you know why fighting games (DoA, Tekken) are the best looking games on the market? Because the engine's got freaking nothing else to do then render some guys doing some pre-programmed moves. It's got way much processor power left for graphics and backgrounds, even on the PS2 and Xbox.

 

I'd like to do a comparisson between what GTA does while running and what DoA does, but I'm too lazy.

I think GTA looks damn good for it's specs and for what it's doing all the time.

I agree 100%

If they made a game with the size and functionality of GTA:SA on the Steam engine of HL2, it won't be possible to play it for at least 3 years, when the CPU's and Gfx cards are powerful enough.

I have to say, that as nice as all these screenshots are, they still don't do the game justice when compared to actually playing it.

 

The world just flows so nicely now on the PC. Some of the things that I saw in the PS2 version and wouldn't think twice about, are now almost breathtaking in the PC version, especially with the awesome draw distance.

 

God I can't wait to get home and play some more. I didn't think it would be this cool to play again after I beat the game on the PS2 last fall. It's like I'm playing for the first time all over again!

Word, yo. High FPS + better graphics = better experience.

 

To set up that comment, let me say this:

 

I've been playing SA on teh PS2 for the last two days to be able to compare the two.

 

There's no comparison.

 

Even on a 65" widescreen, I was straining to find my way on the radar to blips. No problem with that anymore.

 

When it got "dark", all I could see was the clothes of some characters. It was like having detached retinas. No problem with that either, anymore.

 

Horrible jaggies? No, sir.

 

I f*cking love the PS2 version. It's great for parties, and has provided me countless entertainment over the past 8 months. But SA PC is like having your cake while f*cking a supermodel. It's just better.

Lovely screens sip, but im unhappy with the lack of aa. I thought you had a 6800 GT!

when i first started playing, it wouldnt allow me to adjust it, so i set the hardware to force it to 2AA. i guess that didnt do it. it allows me to though, so the future screens should look better.

 

i have noticed a few other new things in the pc vs ps2.

 

1. biker gangs. i dont think i ever saw one in the ps2 version. but in the pc version, i see them all over. its a big group of bikes all with biker looking guys on them

2. the train. you can ride it now rather than having to drive it, by getting into the passenger car rather than the engine.

3. road rage: if you hit a car, sometimes, it will chase you down and hit you back. i never noticed this in the ps2 version

 

i love the draw distance biggrin.gifuser posted image

 

 

 

EDIT: imageshack must hate me
