Just to let you know, when you get the last mission where you have to storm the crack house...don't worry about the difficulty. The mission is cut into 3 parts just in case you die. I was really pissed when I died during it but when I realized the game skipped most of the mission the next few times around I really appreciated it! This GTA really knows how to make missions less frustrating..
thanks for the hint, because I always load a savegame when a mission fails.

Really? Why is that? Most mission have a "skip the drive" feature that will warp you back to the main part of mission once you start it back up again. I thought this was one of GTA:SA's best features compared to the other two.

am I the only one that likes OG loc's raps (like on that party?)? everyone in the game says it's terrible.
I like OG loc much more than all the other hiphop and rap you hear in the game and radio.

Can't say OG Loc is that good,but not as terrible as the game states.

Everytime before I save I make sure I have full health and full armour. I reload as well when I fail a mission so I don't lose all my guns and stuff.

I finished the mission where you and Big Smoke have to follow the train with the four ese dudes on top. Then after that was the most awesome mission so far, so I won't spoil it but just say it was the most fun I have had so far.

Playing this game for like three weeks now, and am learning the layout of the first city and getting a fair idea of where everything is. I've bought all the houses I can buy so far and almost 13% into the game. So yeah taking my time in finding all the little bit and pieces of the game. So much fun!

A couple of interesting little stats I've got: longest wheelie time 39 seconds.
Biggest gambling win - $1.8 million
Stripper money - $800

I finally beat grove 4 life!
but I'm disappointed, I see every mission is now about taking over gang territories
even worse, in order to be able to start the next mission, I have totake-over more hoods.

that's so boring

and while the idea of rioting is cool, and the background sound is cool, I feel it failed, not extreme enough

Need some help on a mission I think is called N.O.R or something like that.

I can't seem to keep the plain below radar view. When I do I always end up crashing into something right before I get to the drop off point.

Welcome to San Andreas!

I hate that mission....the best way I did it was to try your hardest to stay low and on the trip back I didn't care if I was too high or not, because avoiding those missiles isn't all that hard....just bank like crazy or fly low again to make them loose you.

Re: GTA: San Andreas for PC
that mission went like this for me:

*you're flying too high*
*flies under the radar level for a few seconds*
*you're flying too high*
*flies under the radar level for a few seconds*
*you're flying too high*
*flies under the radar level for a few seconds*
*you're flying too high*
*flies under the radar level for a few seconds*
*you're flying too high*
*flies under the radar level for a few seconds*
*you're flying too high*
*flies under the radar level for a few seconds*
*you're flying too high*
*flies under the radar level for a few seconds*
*you're flying too high*
*flies under the radar level for a few seconds*

...

then all of a sudden I get detected, but I don't care, they lose me again.

also, my thoughts on the ending:

<table><tr><th><font size="-1">Spoiler below:</font></th></tr><tr><td class="spoiler">
I never died on the first 3 floors, and also defeated the very easy boss.
but when the building gets on fire, I died, because my PC slows down to 1/5 times normal speed due all that smoke.
I didn't load a savegame like I always do.
anyway, the chasing of that firetruck was very cool, with all those molotov cocktails flying around.... they don't hit or damage you, but I still felt uneasy.
with all those molotov cocktails it was a real riot, I wanted to see more special effects during the general riot: people never attack me, and you only see the burning buildings if you are really close.
the only thing the riot managed to do good was the background sound and all the cars exploding
</td></tr></table>

just fly in the first person view - then its much easier to control the plane
same with the flyingschool missions

Really? Thats wierd....that riot was hell for me. Cars exploded within seconds of entering the area and people randomly attack one another and pull me out of cars etc.

I find it impossible that you didn't notice the riot? I got so annoyed buy the cars that would drive into me and explode for no reason...

I noticed the riot, re-read my post, because I said what things it did good.
it's only unfortunate they don't attack YOU (except if you are in a car), and I wanted more special effects.
it felt like a softy riot

more special effects wouldn't slow the game down, because the molotov cocktails in the final mission didn't slow it down too

Hate to say this, but it's something we as consumers better get used to because the average specs are about to do a jump to this level sometime to where most all commercial games that make it to a mainstream level will demand this type of horsepower and oomph from a computer.

I guess you haven't been able to play any 3d games released the last 2 years then. If you could play say hl2 then there is something going on with your setup and SA.

If you beat the firefighter missions, you become immune to fire. You could walk in an inferno and take nothing, but you're still prone to explosions.

Im sort of contemplating getting this now, what do you guys think? I already had it on the PS2, and loved it..but after I completed it I never went back.

But now Im sort of hyped about it again, and the advanced graphics and controls are appealing, also the mods. Think I should take the plunge and get it?

If you completed it I would pass on it. Spend the money on a game you haven't played yet instead. The experience is slightly better on pc then ps2 though so if you realy want to play it through one time it might be worth it if you have a fast enough computer to realy make a difference compared to the ps2 gfx.

Well you know what? The game is rated mature and those against rockstar need to realize this is an adult game. If they happened to let their kids play it then it is out of rockstar's hands. Its like a kid playing LSL:MCL.....they show topless women all the time...
