    the graphics, although outdated, are beautiful for the year 2004, with some details that impress you today. Outside the story that is great and holds you until the end

    10/10, just like the PS2 version
    I am so glad that when I researched the PS4 version, it turned out to be an emulation of the PS2 version, only with widescreen option. Yes, the controls were weird at first after playing GTA IV and GTA V for so long, but after one playthrough I got the hang of it. Will always be one of the best games that was ever created.

    Great storyline except for the plane missions in all honesty. Music and gameplay done right and its everything I wish GTA V had. HighlyGreat storyline except for the plane missions in all honesty. Music and gameplay done right and its everything I wish GTA V had. Highly recommend picking it up if you havent played it yet. It's not a GTA game unless you spawn a tank out of no where and start blowing **** up. Expand

    Not as good as the original one for PS2. This 1080p version has slight v-sync problems and sometimes there's issues with the sound as well.Not as good as the original one for PS2.

The story and the atmosphere are still the same pure GTA: San Andreas that they were back in the day. Expand

    Great atmosphere, story, music, big map with variety of landscapes. Very well made characters and quite likable. Story based on real lifeGreat atmosphere, story, music, big map with variety of landscapes. Very well made characters and quite likable. Story based on real life events and blended in very well into this fictional world. Great content overall. The minus is the graphics because back then there were already open world games with better graphics. So we knew it's possible but rs decided to not invest much into it and tbh I doubt the people there knew what are they doing coding wise. Either way it's still a great game and quite enjoyable. For me the PS2 version had better sounding and atmosphere while the PC version was tech heavy back then and had tons of glitches and bugs. The tons and tons of mods are what kept this game alive for years so as the fanbase held multyplayer. Overall a really enjoyable good game. Expand

    The game is good, but controls for me was a bit weird, since I'm used to GTA V. The game was good, exactly like PS2, but HD. The only reasonThe game is good, but controls for me was a bit weird, since I'm used to GTA V. The game was good, exactly like PS2, but HD. The only reason why I don't like about the game is that when you are on a bike, and you sprint, It' s not that fast. And aiming wasn't good either. But good. Expand

    actually a very cool game. I love playing it on my ipad air. but I can't play a ps4 version. the graphics is much worse ios version, gameactually a very cool game. I love playing it on my ipad air. but I can't play a ps4 version. the graphics is much worse ios version, game looks very dark. different gameplay, for example after hospital you lose all your weapons, after mission failed you can't quickly retry, no cloud save, and so on. basically ps4 version looks like a ten years old game :) Expand
