Summary: I played this game back in the Playstation days and I thought I would buy the PC version since I missed playing this game. After leaving the game first time my mouse stopped working. I couldn't move it anywhere, and despite disconnecting the mouse & reconnecting it did not work and it forced me to restart my computer. I checked for solutions and I wasn't alone. It's not fully compatible on the Windows 7 OS.
Summary: Between the slow loading time on win7 and the weird keyboard mouse controls (and lack of logitech controller support) I have to give this great game a 3. Love the gameplay but a little more work on the tech side would have made it much more enjoyable without a console.
Summary: At the ridiculous price this is going for I downloaded it. Unfortunately, I doesn't work well on my computer. I have a big fast system so there shouldn't be a problem but it is an old game. I have GTA 4 and love it so I can't really ding it's older brother.
Summary: The game is awesome, but I just didn't like how the helicopter controls work. The cussing ia a bit much - could do with less of that. You can't do trigger finger at all, can only just hold down the left mouse button to shoot.
Summary: Sometimes when I play online for more than 30 minutes it crashes my computer. The game just suddenly crashes, and ctrl+alt+delete doesn't work, so I can't manually close the game. My specs far exceed the recommended requirements. I play this on highest graphic settings no problem. Everything else is great, though, but I really like playing online and this makes it difficult.
Not Great on Windows8 (as usual. U suck microsoft)
26 September 2007
Summary: It's always a pain to get even some Windows7 stuff to run on Win8 but, older games and software are even harder. I got it to play but the screen flickers with double image shadows too and no enhanced customization options as steering. I would have programmed the little extras into it.
Summary: Bought this for a steal (under $[...]), but quickly discovered a possible reason for the price. The audio in the Mac version is really messed up. The sample rate conversion of the audio files is executed poorly, so it aliases like crazy (an awful buzzing noise that changes with the audio signal). Not sure if it does this on all Macs, but you can read up about the problem - Search for "gta trilogy mac audio". Lots of people experienced it.
