I think SA's graphics are pretty amazing on a powerful PC.

Yes. In my opinion, it's the best game in the series. I bought it the day it came out and I still play it to this day. In fact, I'm working on beating it for xbox again.

gta sa is one of the best games of all time, but apparently rockstar games doesnt see that so most likely it always will be the best game of all time, until rockstar games makes another san andreas and they make it better then the first one, gta sa will hold the record, and its the best selling game for ps2 colgate.gifbiggrin.gif

I find GTA SA to have the most replayability, freedom and fun factor out of all the other GTA games

Is San Andreas better than IV?

Honestly speaking? No.

 

I find the core gameplay better in GTA IV. I even enjoy the side missions more in GTA IV.

 

To me exploring Liberty City is alot more fun even though it's not as big as SA. SA is most certainly worth it (all GTAs are), but after playing both extensively I think GTA IV is a way better game, even without as many features.

Dude GTA San Andreas is THE Best. Yet some people say VC is better. A matter of personal opinion i guess.

 

If you're still thinking about it, try checking out ign.com and other game review websites. GTA SA got a higher overall score than IV (OMG!!!)

And get a cheat device like CodeBreaker or Action Replay Max (get

the CodeBreaker if you don't mind less features like the regional

free DVD player, and more codes, get ARMax if you only have a PC,

no Mac will do best with it, and less codes). San Andreas is fun with codes

like spawn FBI Trucks and zero gravity when holding L1, etc.

I'm sorry if your PC, but if you got an XBox, they all exist.

Wait, did you just say you're sorry if he's on PC? The PC is the ultimate platform for cheating/modding/hacking. Not that it's always a good thing, but you get what I'm saying.

I find it the best platform for a GTA as well, once you're done with it you'll always have modding.

Yes. I heard there's a PC cheat device as well, but when compared to modding,

it sucks. It's just me who can't touch the PC (hence why I mentioned "Mac"),

so my opinions always differ.

I prefer San Andreas because of the huge highways and countryside. And because Claude Speed is featured in a mission in the game. But my favorite GTA game is GTA III. inlove.gif

Yeah, san andreas doesn't have as good as graphics as they once seemed, but the missions are still hella fun.

 

I'm just now tying up VC and now moving back to SA (i've beat it like 5 times, but it never seems to get old[sA])

 

I'm hoping that compared to VC, that Sa will seem alot better... As opposed to IV, which I was doing previously. ph34r.gif

 

Overall I still think SA is my favorite GTA.

Maybe due to the countryside, I just loved the enviroment, for some reason. rolleyes.gif

I never realy loved san andreas as such but i played it again after about 2 years without playing it and it kinda Relived and brought back some good memories of san andreas, now that im older i think i liked it way better then i did when i was younger.

If ive got nothing else to play i usualy play a bit of san andreas, it just never gets old for me.

SA is definitely worth purchasing. There are endless things to do in this game. Also, the map is huge. As for the storyline, most people don't find it that great. That's not to say that you won't, though. I say go ahead and get it. It'll keep you entertained for a really long time. I still play it to this day, and I've had it for years.

 

If you have any more questions regarding SA, feel free to ask them.

Story line? Vice City.... Tommy Vercetti is true gangster... like I love CJ but I feel like he is just trying to fix his situation the whole story.... getting into the gang sh*t, his brother... officer Tenpenny (Tho you may want to get SA just for Tenpenny... best GTA antagonist ever...)

 

Anyways... unlike CJ Tommy is in it for himself... its HIS empire and HIS rules... you are no bitch in Vice City... perhaps the only GTA where your character isnt somewhat of a bitch.

Try to contribute more than 2 words next time. Not trying to be an ass, just saying. Posts consisting of few words could be considered spam in most cases.

 

OT: If you can, just get both games. They can be picked up for pretty cheap prices these days.

if you play the game like I do, then yes.. Don't just go from mission to mission, don't just run around going on killing sprees.. Use ur imagination theres alot to do in this game

 

If you like Sandbox games, well... This is the grandaddy of sandbox games and you should definitely get it , but.. If ur the kinda 'go from mission to mission' sort of gamer, then.. get it anyway!

This is very true, and actually goes for every GTA game. There is so much that these games have to offer. :inlove:
