Algonquin Assassin

My trip back to San Andreas

Recommended Posts

Algonquin Assassin

Ok I think it's time to give my opinion of it so far since I'm roughly about halfway through it now and I'll also give an end game summary when I finally finish it..

 

The Story so far....

 

As someone who deemed the story as garbage in the past it's a lot better than I remember. It's still not as great as GTA IV (Then again very few games are), but on a whole I've enjoyed the story up until this point. I've always liked the initial Los Santos portion anyway, but never post-Los Santos.

 

It definitely has a change of pace, but not in a bad way. It introduces Toreno, The Truth and Woozie who are my favourite San Andreas characters so it's not as bad as I remember.

 

Onto gameplay. At first I found the shooting mechanics....well to put it bluntly kind of sh*t, but the more missions I've done it's started to become second nature. I avoid using manual aim as it feels too jerky with the PS4 controller, but auto aim feels fine when it locks on. Sometimes it can feel a little fiddly though and there was a moment today I crashed into harbor near the San Fierro airport and I was wishing for the ability to climb ladders and thought "Oh f*ck".

 

Anyway I haven't engaged that much with side missions and such. I've done a couple of trucking missions, a stadium race and things like taxi missions and stuff like that. They've been fun, but I feel like most of the side content I'll probably ignore as it doesn't interest me that much. So far I'm about 20 hours in..

 

In summary regarding positives and negatives...

 

+Story is a lot better than I remember.

+Exploring particularly in the countryside is so much fun and interesting.

+CJ gets my seal of approval.

 

-Some of the mechanics feel a bit dated and janky.

-I don't have much of a desire to explore content other than what interests me.

-Some of the weapons sounds still have a "cap gun" like quality about them 

 

That's all for now. Stay tuned for further updates and such.:)

I think you’ll like the heist. If you do play of course, it requires a bit of time.

oh, and just so you know, the PSP version of VCS has the best graphics and performance. not the PS2 version. so if you do get bored during quarantine and want to try it, either dust off your old PSP, or get an emulator. you can try an emulator for PC or android/iOS, and see which one runs VCS better 🙂

I made Toreno take his last flight. I was hesitant about this mission because it always gave me a bit of grief in the past, but only took a couple of tries.

 

I also finished the driving school. Not all gold though. Maybe I might come back to it as I just wanted to pass all the tests regardless of the medals 

 

I'll probably make another video when I get to Las Venturas or something like that.:)

LOL what's the point of that ? That is no good to him, there is no challenge if he cannot do it by himself !

Yeah. I prefer trying things myself as I like overcoming the challenge.

Just letting you guys that I've abandoned my save and thus wont be playing it anymore. Truthfully I haven't played it for a few days because I lost the desire to. However I did like it more than I have previously, but was kind of feeling like I was starting to push myself to play it and it was pretty much the same point in the past I started losing interest in the story.

 

I guess I needed things to be put into perspective. It's still a great game and I wont blindly bash it like I have in the past, but I guess it's just not my thing and I gave it the best chance I've given it in years. I dunno, but thanks everyone for offering tips and such.:)
