Summary: This review is for the PC port of the game, the original PS2 version is easily a 5 star product. The controls for the PC are so terrible that it goes beyond a simple lazy port, I think it was an actual joke by Rockstar on the PC users. Not since the early 90s has a default pc key configuration been literally impossible to use.
Summary: I am in love with this game I've been playing this game every since I was 16 (I'm 23 now). I've mostly played it on the PS2 console, but then it started messing up and wouldn't play the disc anymore. So I decided to get the game for my PC and when I saw it on here that you can download the game I was very ecstatic, but after I downloaded it and started playing it, it tends to lag and skip a lot, which at first didn't bother me too much, and then very recently it started...
Summary: Had to get a refund from amazon because I could not play it on my computer. They were nice and understanding that I had just bought it and was unable to play it for whatever reason, and refund me.
Summary: I was hoping for an interesting simulation of "real life" in this game, with its world open to be explored. But I found the graphics poor (I have free games that look better), and the missions were really boring, like looking for and erasing some 20 graffitis all over one area of town.
Summary: I was having problems recently with my CD/DVD drive and it would not load any games from CD ROM Disk. So I purchased GTA San Andreas so it would be installed on my drive. After several hours of downloading and the installation I booted up the game. The first thing I noticed was the game was lagging and shaky. At times the screen would freeze for a moment and then continue to run. This caused me to uninstall and re-install I believe, to correct the problem yet it didn't.
Summary: If you are a keyboard/mouse gamer then you wont have too much of a problem playing this game. But if you're like me and like connecting a game controller to your PC and playing your games on it then you'll have a problem. I bought both a xbox 360 wired controller and a normal game controller for the PC but it doesnt recognize the left and right triggers. I tried every little software program on the net to get it working but still no success.
Summary: I bought this downloadable version of the game cause I didn't want to wait for the disc to come. plus it was easier to play. This is a great game and I love the GTA series, but they didn't have what I really wanted it for. I got it so I can download the MTA (Multi Thief Auto)to play online with friends. But the downloadable GTA doesn't not acknowledge the code file to downgrade the game to make it Multi-player usable.
Summary: The GTA series has been going strong for a very long time with the new one coming out soon (GTA 5) it's been my favorite game but I was very disappointed with this one, Each mission is tedious and it's all the same, for example your given a mission to pick up a package simple as that, so you go and pick it up and then a butt load of enemies show up then once you killed them all you have to return the package.
