Grand Theft Auto

What do you think about it? Is it cool, or is it just plain rubbish?

Discussion of anything from all the games, such as mission, rampage, weapon etc help.

Re: Grand Theft Auto

I've always enjoyed the games. For me the appeal has nothing to do with the violence but with the many wonderfully executed parodies that are featured in each and every game. I could listen to the radio on those games for hours on end, in deed I actually have listened to them for hours on end.

Re: Grand Theft Auto

OMG!!! Great thread! I love playing this game!

However I am stuck at a point in San Andres. I completed every mission I could with each gangsta, but I couldn't get past the part with the hydrolic cars. Where you have to do the certain moves of the mouse to make the car jump and bop. Any suggestions or tips?

Re: Grand Theft Auto

Are you playing the PC version, then? Not that it matters, i was just curious. Try getting into the beat of the music, rather then trying to concentrate on the symboles.

No, I have the xbox version, meh I think it is because I can't get the beat of the music. I have no problem with the other missions but I am stuck at this one.

Re: Grand Theft Auto

I enjoy the Mafia-related games, but I didn't care for San Andreas' street gang theme.

Re: Grand Theft Auto

And the amount of language in it was just appuling. I mean, GTA III and Vice City managed to be tiough without all the swearing every 5 minutes.

The only suggestion I have is practice the minigame.
I'm not that good at it myself and I still manage to beat the CPU.


I still remember the first time I played a GTA game.
GAME: Grand Theft Auto:Vice City
WHERE I FIRST PLAYED IT: Friend of my mother's house, her son had the game
WHEN I FIRST PLAYED IT: Christmas Eve, 3 or 4 years ago
WHAT I DID: took the Sabre Turbo from the garage on Starfish Island, somehow ended up near the airport.
DID I GET THE GAME: I got it as a Christmas present that year.

Re: Grand Theft Auto

I agree with SecretAgentZero. My only advice is to keep practicing it. You'll eventually get it.

I've played all the GTA games since the original on PlayStation. The only ones I haven't played are Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories. I enjoyed all of them, but my favorite is San Andreas. Nothing like cruising down the Las Venturas strip past all the casinos at night.

Re: Grand Theft Auto

I tried out GTA 3 at a friends' once -- I drove better in that game, than I did in any racing game . Not really a fan of the game itself though, too violent.

Okay when are you suppose to click on the arrow that goes that way, when the symbol gets in the circle or before?

I passed the dance one with Denise with the letters, but I feel like the arrows are harder...

EDIT:

Nevermind...I passed it!! I was using the left joystick that locks the car, when I needed to use the right one... Now I am in the process of reclaiming my hood.

Re: Grand Theft Auto

I have the game for quite some time (GTA-SA), I got it from a friend as a present but I never gave it too much attention (since I'm kind of a RPG gamer). I played it for few minutes and droped. But now that I saw this thread I decided to try it again. I will probably come back here again with some questions too!

Yay! This is why I have been MIA for a bit I finally past the part that I couldn't for the longest time and it just opened a can of worms for me!

I am playing San Andres and I just have to work on the last of the four missions with that girl that swears a lot. She is pretty volatile! It is the mission where you have to chase the four four-wheelers.

But I have 100% territory back in San Andres and now I am just working the missions out in the boon docks. This game has me hooked

Glad to know that you're hooked on it, so this means that the game is good. I'm also happy that you are far ahead (, I didn't even started) so I can use your help later!!!

Yay! I would love to help! I still have a long way to go, but with all the missions and everything I feel like I am pretty far. If I don't know the answer I am sure there are others out there who can help .

ooo and I just unlocked the flame thrower!

I started to play it this weekend (after all the talk about it I gt a bit curious). I'm still at the begining, made I think only 6 missions. I got killed so many times at first that if all the bullets stayed in my character will have a hard time on metal detectors!! I'm at a part when I can go on a misson to with Sweet (Drive by - If I'm not mistaken) and one with Big Smoke (about getting a guy that go out from prision)!! The problem is that I'm still a terrible driver (a bit better with the motorcycle) so I will probably need like a bunch of tries till I get it right!! But I'm enjoying the game!!

Re: Grand Theft Auto

Good game, I liked the Gang theme more than the Mafia ones(overdone IMHO)

Myself and a friend would greatly like to see a GTA with an Irish Mafia theme, we're into the whole subculture of Irish criminal gangs in America although he's more into the modern gangs whereas I find the Prohibition Bugs Moran type gangs to be more my choice.

It could be set in a parody of Boston or Chicago or something

Ooo that one can be tough because you have to be good on a motorbike. I would suggest going to that area and just zooming around all the passages and rodes on a motorbike so you get the feel of it.

I am better on the motorcycle too. I only just started to up my driving skills

I am stuck right now on the Plane mission with Zero...I have to learn how to fly the toy plane...I suck and the other mission working for the club owner where you have to drop of a girl and then go take out um a guy... and then follow a precher in a limo and take out the limo and the jeep behind him. I seem to be doing more damage to the car I am in then to either of theirs.

That would be cool! It seems like it has been awhile since they came out with a new game.

That's a very good tip! I will do that so I can also drive around to increase my motorcycle riding skills too (if there's is one).

I don't have any that's why I keep killing people on the sidewalks on my corner turns!!! I think I will spend some time playing just to increase those a bit. I should improove the one with the bike too, but I lost mine and now I can't find a new one - do you know where I can get one?

Did you try to use something heavier to take then out, like a grenade?? I', still on the same missons that I mentioned, since I didn't have time to play since Sunday!

I can't think of right now exactly where one is sitting in San Andres, sometimes you will see them in parking lots or I just steal them from others

You know I have a missile launcher I could try that. I don't know for sure if you have to be in the car to take out the other two, you certainly have to follow them all over the place, but if I could jump out quick and missle them that might work. They do go slow enough at times for that...I will try it!
