Default Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Who jacked their copy yet? I am a sucker for GTA. Vice I didnt want to end and now they say this is better and longer. I cant wait for the PC version so I ordered it and the new PS2.

9.6 (you can stream the review.)

9.9

October 25, 2004 - I'm not going to beat around the bush. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the single best PlayStation 2 title I have ever played. It's larger than the biggest RPG, has more story than the heftiest adventure game, and has almost as many mini-games as Nintendo's Mario Party. Additionally, it has a production value that's second to none, boasts a faithfulness to '90s source material with an eerie accuracy, and provides more hours of entertainment than all the previous Grand Theft Autos combined. In short, it's a terrific unending masterpiece of a game -- and one that will never fall victim to an over-exaggeration of its lofty status. It's the defining piece of software for Sony's successful sophomore system, and it's almost impossible to imagine a PlayStation 2 library without it.

Looks mighty tasty but I am still waiting for the PC version, plenty of other games to keep me occupied until then.

I hate you... just because I want that new PSTwo :\... I already own the original PS2 (this Wednesday will be the 4th year I have had it )... but I want internet and the newer one is much smaller which is nice... and I don't want this one to break down.

Don't care about the IGN score since they give out high scores like candy but gamespot (Hardest Reviewers I have seen) giving it a 9.6 means alot... I might actually have fun with this GTA game... the other ones bored me after acouple of hours.

I've been playing GTA:SA for the past 2 hours and I LOVE IT. There are so many things that you can do right from the start . . . it's crazy. I've done a few missions, rode bikes, stolen cars, eaten food, and worked out. It sucks too cuz I get lost real easy. (I'm trying not to use the map so I can memorize where everything is) Overall, this game does deserve a 9.8/10.

No, but drive-by's happen all the time in my neighborhood and really don't have the shock and awe you suburbanites get from them...that still gives me a 9.8 lol j/k

Shock value of a drive-by is nothing if you're used to hearing it down the street or on the news. But the shock value of a drive-by happening to you is a different story. That deserves a 10.0 (Yes, I've experienced that, was at the wrong place at the wrong time, but very lucky).

edit: Oh, and any word as to when San Andreas is coming out for the PC? I heard like next year or something...
