GTA SA missions' variety appreciation


Recommended Posts

This game has different and unique missions without taking the fun and challenge from them  and actually every mission has its different challenge

I only wish they had more shooting since I remember the first time I played the game And reached the mission "You've had your chips" it was hard I totally forgot that it's a shooting game lol and since you can't go stealthy in this mission and that was my style in most of the missions

So I wish the game had more shooting 

Anyways my favorite missions are

_Cleaning the hood

This mission has the perfect 90s gangs Atmosphere going with my homie Ryder to our friend's house who became a dealer and has our other friend as his slave then we beat a dealer ( I try searching for more) together then we enter one of the ballas members crib and beat them all

_Just Business

I had so much fun playing this mission  . the dialogues , the cutscenes and of course drive by against the Russian Mafia

_End of the line

What can I say about this one this mission is by far my favorite mission in the series. it had everything 

_New model army

I always found this one fun and interesting I hope we had a side mission were we can replay it not replaying the one from supply lines

Anyway I will stop here because if I continued I will talk about every mission  in the game since they're all fun 

_Breaking a bank at Caligula's : everything about this mission is perfect it has shooting and it has variety and everything and the moment when there's a Heli chasing Carl is cinematic asf and we punch zero at the end name a better mission

_Saints Mark's Bistro : a mafia themed mission where we travel to LC and kill Sonny's brother And the mafia actually has shotguns which makes it harder = more fun

What are your favorites and why?

I appreciate the diversity of missions and woud even more if the difficulty wasn't dosed like a bipolar's mood.

TBH after playing the game dozens of times most of them became very easy

Also I always go stealthy in most of the missions and don't get involved in gunfights a lot in this game so it makes Missions easier

Great variety in this game; from gang wars to countryside robberies, from infiltrating a secret military base to freeing refugees from a ship, from taking down a loco syndicate to controlling an RC plane, from street racing to hijinks in the sky San Andreas had them all. It really contributed to the popularity and perhaps replayability of this game too

 

I love the shootout  and taking on gangs type of missions but my favourite missions were generally robbery based and stealth based missions. So I'd like to mention

 

-Breaking the Bank in Caligula's. My favourite heist in the series

 

-Black Project. Felt very much like a heist and liked infiltrating the secret base and the stealth involved. Alternatively going guns blazing once in a while had its own fun.

 

-The Da Nang Thang. Infiltrating the ship felt cool af and I felt like a proper hero freeing those refugees

 

-Catalina's countryside robberies. Liked them all,  my favourites were  chasing the redneck robbers on a quadbike and robbing the betting shop

 

-End of the Line. An incredibly satisfying final mission. Infiltrating Smokes crack palace level by level and the boss fight with him felt like a classic. Also chasing Tenpenny through the streets of LS with 'Today was a good day' playing felt pretty cool man.

-Reuniting The Families.

This mission is just action on top of action. It's amazing.

 

-Breaking The Bank At Caligula's.

Possibly one of the greatest heists in the entire series.

 

-A Home in the Hills.

It was just so badass jumping out of a plane with a group of Triads,parachuting,then taking out a bunch of gang bangers,then getting Dogg his mansion back.

 

-End Of The Line.

Busting in a "crack palace" with a SWAT tank,going through waves and waves of Ballas,Vagos,Rifas and Russian Mobsters,finally coming face to face with the fat bastard that betrayed your crew and then escaping in one of the coolest drive-by sequences.

I too wanted more shootouts. Especially ones with gangs. The house party mission and Reuniting The Families in particular. Doing the home invasion stuff on the side, some horse race betting and some low riding. So much stuff to do, and that's just Los Santos.

One of my favorite missions would be the Mountain Cloud Boys. It's very simple in design, very fun and the location is just perfect. Those small Chinatown alleyways have a special atmosphere to them.

House Party is another good mission, it has some cool 90s LA gangwar atmosphere to it.

 

Breaking the Bank at Caligula's, as others have stated before me, is another brilliant mission. Lots of planning went into it and it is overall well executed. I love it.

This doesn't make sense at all but it's so true. Always takes me back to Chinatown in Portland in GTAIII.

What do you mean it doesn't make sense?

The mission variety is why I love Sanadreas so much. It's not a shooter, it's an adventure! My favorites are:

  • Catalyst
  • Life's a Beach
  • Supply Lines
  • 555-We-Tip
  • Learning to Fly
  • Cut Throat Business

 

I could go on and on how much the variety does for Sanadreas. These instances genuinely make the game come alive and feel so much bigger as well as a hell of a lot more fun. I agree there should have been more shooting in the game but that all should have been relegated to side content. The overreliance on shooting is what makes the GTA5 campaign so hard to get through.

  • Breaking the Bank at Caligula's
  • Black Project
  • Just Business
  • Pier 69
  • The Da Nang Thang
  • N.O.A
  • End of the Line

I personally loved the fact there was less shooting.

Exactly, and I wished future R* games did the same thing, but every game since how devolved into 'go here, shoot these people, ride back' bullsh*t.

And its such a shame because they have such great game worlds that could provide all kinds of different and unique missions, but they are hell bent on making you commit acts of mass murder for very little reason for asshole characters. What made GTA SA stand out is because the characters are actually likeable (and aren't annoying stereotypes like Manny, Brucie and pretty much every GTA V caharcter), and despite having the same mechanics of driving and shooting, they made every mission different, and the missions actually evolve with the map:

- Tagging turf, gang wars, funeral shoot-outs, stealth missions, dancing missions, lowriders, hood rat GF's , burglaries in Los Santos

- Roleplaying as a scrappy outlaw committing varied heists and utilizing farm vehicles, with open world coming together with the missions.

-Progressing the story and becoming a businessman in San Fierro, and listening to K-Jah.

-Being a secret agent in a Sci-Fi mini-series and all kinds of whacky stunts in the desert.

- Gambling in the casino's in LV.

Just an all round masterpiece. Lacked a lot of polish and the vehicle side missions were a bit tedious, but the RPG mechanics, the interactivity, the gambling, the pool and lowrider minigames, burglaries and racing was just a masterpiece.

The first few missions of 4 open your eyes to a world of possibilities that they fail to capitalize on.
