Said By Dr. Nick RiveraGood game, though I was too lazy to beat through it.
Said By NachoKingPI recently got this game for both X Box and PC and I have to say, I was completely surprised by how good it was. Not that I don't like the GTA series, I absolutely loved the last two. I was not excited about this one because I have never been a fan of the whole "gangster" theme that was popular in the 90s and I wasn't looking forward to playing as one in the game, but it was surprisingly not as bad as I was expecting. Rockstar thankfully kept the levels down to a reasonable amount and they made the game appealling to all types of people, all while turning the "gang life" into a typically fun GTA experience. I have completely decimated the X Box version, doing all of the story missions and a majority of the side stuff as well. Now I am taking on the PC version (playing with my X Box controller I might add) and cheating a bit just to give myself some fun because I've already gone through the entire game without cheating and I don't feel bad doing it.
I also feel I should give my two cents on this whole "Hot Coffee" scandal that has been getting major headlines lately. First of all, I think the fact that Rockstar even considered putting this into their game at any point is really irresponsible on their part. The fact that they actually DID code this and put it into the game, even if it wasn't activated, is downright shameful. But for all of that angst, I don't think Rockstar should be held accountable for it, only for the fact that it was not a readily available portion of the game through any means other than cracking the code. It has not been unlocked in either of the console verions (yet) by any form of code, and it took somoene creating a patch on the PC version (kudos to the guy who actually did it) for it to come to light. I have seen the video of the mod and it really is incredibly graphic and should NOT be in a video game that is intended for the masses. I know I might sound contradictory, but I feel strongly both ways. I feel that Rockstar should not have let the game ship with this code in it, but I also feel that legally they shouldn't be held responsible because it wasn't an intended part of the game as it was presented.
