Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
4 days ago
Conclusion: Rockstar has gone to great lengths to ensure that GTA: San Andreas supports updated textures, draw distances, and lighting that live up to the potential of Retina displays, but many elements such as character models and mission structures can't help but show their age. Still, this mobile port's every bit as fun as playing the original if you have the gamepad to support it, but the touchscreen control, while competent are not the best way to play.
Pros: Improved graphics, Touchscreen optimization, Supports mobile gamepad, Hours of open-world content
Conclusion: It is basically impossible that you have never played a MK title if you frequent TeamXbox.com. But in the case that you haven’t messed with the Fatality crew before, Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks isn’t a bad place to start. The story may not make total sense, but the action is fresh and furious. Gamers well versed in the ways of the Flawless Victory should get a kick out of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks as well.
Conclusion: San Andreas, in a word, is alive: a complete, living, breathing, enormous world that seemingly has no boundaries (and no load times as long as you remain outdoors), filled with weather patterns, an active populace and thorough infrastructure. It does a disturbingly realistic job of recreating California and Nevada; I’ve actually been stuck behind one of those massive traffic jams in Santa Monica that happens for no reason.

Of course, there was a little title known as Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero, but did anyone actually play that? I suppose Mythologies' biggest downfall was that fans knew what it could have been, and what it clearly wasn't.
Conclusion: GTA ever, with plenty of the amazing GTA sandbox-style anti-hero gameplay that the series has invented. Without a doubt, Xbox gamers will be just as arrested as their PS2 counterparts by the stellar, most-definitely Matured-rated (and now, because of some "Hot Coffee", Adult Only-rated) gaming adventure that GTA: San Andreas is.
Excerpt: search looking for car alarms or something along those lines. And even if that is the case, chances are you have still heard of the series mentioned by various congressmen and sensationalist news reports condemning the highly-popular "virtual prostitute murdering game". Because truth be told, the GTA series has had a large impact in the gaming industry and society alike, re-examining what the limits of a videogame are, and pushing them to the extent where you control a...
Excerpt: As sure as eggs is eggs, Rockstar’s GTA games have to sell well – more copies faster than any other game on the market with each iteration made. The release of last October’s GTA: San Andreas was no exception, indeed it was months before anyone owning a PS2 was heard to talk about anything else.
