    I finally got me a 360 controller (the only way to play GTA is with controlelrs, the KB & Mouse feel wrong) so I can start really playing it. Tonight hopefully I will be able to get started.

    Just tried it, runs flat out on my 280, I think it's the most fun game I may have ever played! Next to left4dead, nah this beats it!

    Honestly I was extremely disappointed at this game..
    I don't even consider it a game..

    You can't buy anything at all anywhere..
    no houses, or any type of property.
    extended gameplay is useless.
    there is no reason to continue playing it after you beat it..
    you get no airplane or parachute.
    the only helicopter you get looks like it belongs in a tonka toy commercial..
    it looks and steers horribly..
    and you'll never get a different one.

    The only good thing in the game is the new physx.
    but after running over 100 people that gets old..

    I think this game sucked.. badly..
    I didn't even finish the storyline..
    It got so boring I didn't even want to play anymore..
    I quit just before the end storyline I was so disappointed.
    they took out virtually everything great about san andreas.. and made this crap fest.

    San andreas is better than 4 on so many levels it's not even funny..
    go buy that before you get this piece of crap.

    lol, ive played the game, and i think its better off, i wish that they allowed you to buy houses and all, but buying guns out the back dor of some run down building has this sense of wow.

    just ordered my 280 to see how the computer rolls with it.

    you've always been able to buy guns in gta.
    it use to be a little shop..
    I don't see the difference.

    well, since guns are outlawed in gta4 you can't buy them at ammu-nation anymore. but i can understand from the way the game roll plays why they don't allow you to buy tons of houses and everything. but i would like to though.

    outlawed? lol..
    there is not one thing in that game that would lead you to believe guns are outlawed..
    it definitely doesn't seem like it..
    theres no point in the game where it says "guns are outlawed"

    where did you hear guns are outlawed?
    story line?
    if so, they did a bad job of clarifying that.
    and even then.. the gun shop is so obvious only a retarded cop wouldn't notice it..
    so that's a fail in my book on more than one level..lol..

    also there should always be a place to park your helicopter..
    and you should always get a pimp house at the end..
    you get neither.

    The reason for that is that if they kept all the stuff from SA they for gtaV or whatever they wouldn't be able to add more stuff in and would almost be the same game. The next game will include more and be comparable to the additions in vice city and then the game after will most likely be like san andreas

    GTA3 - VC - SA
    GTAIV - whatever comes next

    lol well.. to each their own I suppose..
    I still think the game was a huge failure.
    the only thing that game consists of is this..
    go kill this guy..
    go catch that guy..
    go get money..
    go spend money on guns and end up with 10,000,000 you can't spend anywhere because there's nothing else to do with it..
    not a single thing..

    you don't take what makes a game great out of the next expansion of the game..
    you expand on it..

    so by your logic..
    5 should be like 3? lol..
    but 4 should not be like 3?

    it's ok, i understand you guys want this game to be as good as san andreas..
    it's just not..
    I'll stop raining on your parade..lol..
    but this game in no way what so ever deserves the 9 rating it seems to be getting.
    not in the least..

    eh :confused: I was agreeing with your point. I told you why they took more stuff out of 4 is so that when the next GTA comes out it has a selling point over IV.

    OOh I see what you mean..
    an underhanded method to increase sales..lol..
    make a crappy game..
    then make a better game?

    well.. I'll be much more wary about buying the next one, now that this one ruined my aspirations.
    I may very likely not buy it at all.
    my bad..
    I misunderstood what you meant.

    guns are outlawed in GTA IV, that is why you have to buy them out of borken down buildings. That's why if you go and shoot a gun the cops go after you. did you ever notice that only the criminals have guns? the normal people don't have guns, guns are outlawed in the game, thus why you have to buy them and the guy says "Stay safe Stay Second Amendment"

    Another way to look at it , gta 3 was good , vice city was better ,with motor bikes helis , SA was awesome and had everything , GTA 4 is now the graphic change over , GTA 5 will follow the same route , this time same graphics , more things , gta 6 will be SA all over with everrything including jets , which were FUC**** AWESOME!

    ok i think that makes sense :laugh:

    i agree. the amount of money and resources it took to code the game out like that must have cost a fortune, and i think gta 5 and 6 will be better then gta 4, but its a progression of time.

    D007-
    Of course instead of complaining that you wasted your money you should have done your research and then realized that the game wasn't what you were looking for.

    Maybe D007 was a fan of gta originally and like me , buys and expects to be good , however i must go against D007 , the game is actually not too bad :cool:
    i think we have all bought a game in the past thinking it would be good but turns out to be awful :cry:

    yep *turning Point* comes to mind with that. However i give kudos to rockstar, this was a beta launch for the next phase in computer games, i mean the game is so lifelike its sometimes scary the way the people look, or how much more advanced the physics are. the next gta game will hve this image system with more buy toys in it. im sure it will only take time.

    I was thinking of picking this up again since I have a GTX 280 on the way and I have a quad core now. Think I could run it maxed and get 60fps?

    easily, as long as the quad is overclocked to 3.4Ghz you should shine.

    My set up now gets about 45-47ish on decent settings. My GTX 280 is on the way. how do you like your GTX 280?
