GTA 4 is not a **** around do what you want sandbox game like GTA SA.

Why is this game so hyped and popular when you can't do these things.

Game starts at night with a macci in the car talking to you about stupid stuff unlike other games where you start out and skip the mission and just **** off like what i enjoy doing with this game.

I don't do any missions or anything, just unlock maps and have fun.

Sorry but im not so happy with the beginning but its alot of work to get the sandbox enjoyment i found with previous GTA's.

And even during the first part if you **** up something, the missions restarts game at same point.

Can you list what specific things you don't like? Every game like this requires you to at least go through some short basic steps to get started.

If anything I think the game motivates you to explore less as there's less useful things just lying around, and the area is much bigger, so finding the pidgeons is incredibly hard.

There are many things lacking from SA but alot of it is for the better. You can still just goof around and not do missions but like the originals you can't unlock more of the game world without doing missions.

I don't do any missions or anything, just unlock maps and have fun.

All GTA games have been the same: you complete missions to unlock more of the city.

Dislike the fact they cut tons of stuff out that SA had:

you can't go to the gym
more better clothes options
fly planes, parachutes, jets gone
tanks, bicycles, atvs gone
can't swim under water
no tattoos, haircuts
no coop 2 player option
gambling at casinos for money
the layout of the map was better cuz gta4 is all a city, and in san andreas its a city/desert/forest(hillbilly area).
when you go to the beach in san andreas theres actualy people there and stuff,
in san andreas you can actually have a garage where u park ur cars in, where in gta4 u park it outside.
you can't customize your car in gta4
no flamethrows, chainsaws, revolvers, (crossbows woud be cool)
can't buy houses
i dont think theres any steath missions (unless i havent got that far).
you can't rob stores

Don't blame the game for your suckiness Bigman. It's unbecoming.

Every GTA game not only needs missions completions for the new areas to unlock, but also has a lengthy starting mission... why are you surprised by these things?

Given the non-popularity of other recent games that are simply open (spiderman, superman, etc) I completely understand and agree with the direction rockstar took with gta4.

On a completely different note, I can see why so many people are complaining about the graphics in GTA4. The graphics really are not next gen in any way. What GTA4 does do very well is provide extremely large environments to play in, and no loading screens between the different parts of the city.

note: yes, I broke down and bought the game :(

ps: bigman, a shorter signature would be much appreciated. Maybe two items per line?

I know all cities aren't unlocked until you complete messions but they were sandbox based starting out doing anything you want.

This game is very awesome once you get going but i just want to start out and have fun withought the timer going off.

They could add some mode when you customize how many police, pedastrians or cars. Just like in mafia.

I'm LOVING GTA. Play multiplayer GTA it's the best. Just go to your mobile phone and select multiplayer.

I love the fact they cut the gym crap. I dont play games to have to work out there too. I just wanna play and have fun, making it too much like real takes the fun outta it. Next you will complain that the character doesnt have to go sit at work for 8 hours a day.

You can't rob banks! You got my hopes up but then I did some searching and found out you can't. You can rob stores like the clothing store by holding up the cashier but that's it.

What I really miss is the burglary mission in SA. Breaking in and stealing people stuff in the middle of the night was a lot of fun.

But the better controls, driving, and cover system and city make up for all those missing things. But it's true SA had a lot to offer.

I think he was reffering to the mission in which you rob a bank, Heat-style.
