So much more than war...
By shandog137
Posted on 04/18/14
The recent blog, Peace in the Era of Call of Duty  really made me think about war games that dig deeper than simply a kill streak reward. The first game that came to mind was Spec-Ops: The Line and although I haven’t played it, I began to wonder if it did the war genre as...

A GANGSTER LIFE IS THE LIFE

Everyone dreams once in a while how much fun it would be to blastin some "motherf***in heads off", but know they're parents wouldn't allow such a thing. Plus, there would be lawyers, cops, the works. Provided they catch you, of course. Well, you don't have to do it in real life, but you can do it in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. But, your parents might also not allow you to play this game, even if it isn't real. ^^'''

This next installment in the GTA series takes place in the 90's. Old CJ is coming back to Grove St. after he heres his mom's dead after being blasted by some Balla fool. When he gets out of the airport and gets a taxi, it's stopped by some old friends of his. Unfortunately, they're cops, and CJ's a gangster, and those 2 don't mix that well.So they frame him for Homicide, take his money, and drop him off in Balla country. Your gansta adventure begins here.

Now you're probably thinking, this sounds good and sh*t, but what about controls, gameplay, etc? Well I'll tell you.

First off, graphics. Beautiful. Extraodinarly realistic, you gotta give Rockstar credit for working it's ass off for these beautiful pixels and polygons. It's all smooth, and the loading time is quick also, which is a surprise seeing as it's on freakin big game packed into one thin disc. Graphics get 9/10, for occasional blurrs.

Next off, sound. Gunfire's real, everything is voiced, and no written dialogue. ^^ Unfortunately the lip syncing could be better, and there's no music, but proper lyp syncing could've added more loading time, so i give sound 9/10.

Now, controls. Not much to say, really easy to switch weapons, stealking cars and motorcycles is a breeze, so i give controls 10/10

Story: not gonna give it away, but lots of twists and turns, really makes you wanna see the story to the end, 10/10

Overall: A
A superior game that makes others tremble in its wake. Great story, great graphics, great control, great voices, geat sound, great game. Now watcha doing here fools, go blast some motherf***in heads off, ya hear!?
