I've been playing that game for the last 4 days straight. Just wait until you buy the "adult entertainment" movie studio. Your mom will love that...

Anyway, I love it. The helicoptor makes it soooo easy to just snipe people and if you have a rocket launcher the helicopters aren't an issue. Ahhh...Theres nothing like dropping a remote contolled grenade in the middle of about 10 cop cars and starting a chain reaction of explosions. This game is much cooler than GTA3...The motorcycles and helicopters are the reason to buy this game...But getting to own parts of the city is way cool too.

There is no release date for this game on the PC. Rockstar Games signed a contract a little while back saying that Sony has the rights for the game i think until 2005 if not mistaken. This happened shortly after the release of GTA III for the PC.

I do have to say that game kicks ***. The graphics have changed and the textures look better then in GTA III. I love the doing wheels with the motorcycles and beating people with my golf club. Its worth to buy because 1) More weapons 40 total compared to 15 in GTA III 2) Move vehicles to drive 100 total compared to 45 i think it was 3) Damn the city is much bigger and you can do so many things 4) Did i mention you could street race :) 5) You can buy houses, apartments, and strip clubs. Need I really say more this game is at least 2 fold better then GTA III, If this came out a couple months after GTA III I would of waited for this masterpiece.

From what i know about the street racing is that you can check a list somewhere in the city. I've heard people racing but im not that far in the game to do that.

Wasn't GTAIII licenced for PS2 first? It came out on PC eventually (although crappily). I wouldn't be surprised if we see VC on PC eventually.

yea, i own the condos there but it takes too long to drive there.

i should have one on top of my estate on star fish island
but it is never there. i had it once and crashed it, never saw
another one there again.

but on my condos up north, there is a chopper always there.
