A lot of people are hyped like crazy over this game and i think that its gettin more credit than it deserves.
Although its still GTA and a very fun game there just are some things that make it not the best. The first GTA games to hit the consols were 3 and Vice City....both games gave you the rugged mafia feel that is always fun to play. I mean everyone would like to serve in the mafia but theyre picky......anybody can join a street gang.
After vice city i was expecting more mafia take over with Tommy Vercetti in the next game but they drop you in LA with gangsters instead. The graphics in San Andreas are good and the landscape is huge but it feels too different to switch from mafia to street gang. But it is GTA were talkin about so its still a definate game to play......but for people who like the story of the mafia for GTA id buy Liberty City Stories or even 3 again before id buy this game.
