Map size is not what Rockstar told us.

It's because of how ridiculously fast most of the cars accelerate in the game. I feel like I drive too fast, almost. Even in average cars. I'm always bumping into the back of cars or dodging them, etc.

 

 

Very annoying.

It's your fault for rushing it. Did you go up the mountains, or did you take the freeway?

 

Stop trying so damn hard. Even in maps like Skyrim, if you took a fast ass car around the map, I'm sure it would look small.

 

The map is big enough, sit down.

This. :^:

It takes only six minutes to drive from north end to south end.in san andreas it took 10 minutes i think.i am dissapointed.

Actually i think their is a major difference with car speeds here. in GTA V some cars are dam fast, way faster than any from SA

no sh*t. They lied about so much stuff I lost count

 

Here's a list.

 

x5 Pendestrians

 

Interiors

 

Serial killers, bums, red necks in the woods

 

All of these were said by R* to be in the game haven't been. Will add to the list as I go on.

 

Turning out to be just another over hyped game like Skyrim.

I don't think many of you actually remember SA too well. Sure if you had a Hydra you could get across the map in no time and cause tons of pop in, but just driving down the highways did take a while.

 

I played GTA SA yesterday, and the day before, and the day before that.

 

As another brilliant poster has pointed out, you'd have to be blind with f*cking autism to have to take 10 minutes to get from one side of the map to another in gta sa. I did it in about 2 minutes with a turismo.

It takes less than 10 minutes to go around the full SA map in a train doing the freight missions while stopping at each stop. I did these missions last night.

It took 10 minutes in San Andreas if you were blind with down syndrome and walking slowly.

You are totally wrong.

In GTA SA it took me from north to south less then 2 min.

And if I circle the it took me about 4 min

In GTA V it took me 5 min from north to south and 10 min if I circled it

The whole map size is quite nice but the Los Santos is definetly too small. You can get from the ghetto to Michael's mansion is very little time.

Balancing a large video game map and realism is a challenge. Taking 30 minutes to drive to Michael's house from East Los Santos would get some people complaining. The map is pretty large and full for what 7 year old hardware can handle.

Its true, probably even gta iv's map is bigger.

 

f*ck the ocean floors seriously no cares about that. Rockstar took some balls decisions with this game.

 

Seriously they should have remade the whole san andreas not just los santos (which imo is very boring).

What? Los Santos is amazing, you can't just drive through it and expect something cool to happen.

The map may not be as big we want it to be, but let's be honest. If the map was too big, we'd be complaining on how big it is. Why? Because it'd take too long to go from point a to point b.

The map is very satisfying. Love it actually. And it is actually big enough.

That's the same thing I said, and that's my point.

I'm playing the game since Saturday and while the map is huge, the city area only equals to gta iv map minus the seas, bridges.

They said 5x as many pedestrians. GTA IV had 300 different types. I guess that means V has 1,500

 

Interiors are probably online, I don't think they specified either or. So much is fit on the disk. Their techniques have gotten better. I don't think the game is 10gb of code, and 8 of fluff. I personally would have liked to see a lot of other stuff taken out and more interiors. I want an arena, but they didn't specify whether it would be online or single.

 

Don't know about the bums.

 

It looks like an amazing game. I wonder what kind of rating San Andreas would get if it came out now......
