I would say yes esp if you are into modding. I loved the game and still play it every now again
post #3 of 20
Yes, but only if you get it super cheap. Like around the $5-7 mark. I only say that because it came out in 08' and they are always on sale everywhere and not because it sucks because it is awesome. I still play it, modded of course.

dude, yea, especially when you mod in real-life cars. Nothing beats driving around a Bugatti Veyron through Liberty City.

also, the Gay Tony episode is the best, it it just hilarious how often poor Luis has to babysit Gay Tony.


and be warned, i'm not sure if a hyperthreaded dual core cuts it for this game, this game demands fast quad cores to even play smoothly. It is often 30 FPS with spikes of 60 FPS outside, constant 60 FPS inside.

I would say no baring an upgrade to your system. I just don't think it's a good game. It's got lot of problems.

For the PC version it wasn't when it came out but now I think it is certainly worth getting.

IMHO, I would say no. I haven't beat the single player or the expansions.
I think it's because of the lack of variety from the game.

San Andreas is probably still my favorite, followed by Vice City.

it's moments like this that make me like GTA IV:

Rockstar were always good at making cutscenes and characters.
