GTA: San Andreas, Xbox VS. Computer  

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
The fifth GTA came out about a month ago for computer and I plan on buying it! I am trying to decide if to buy it for my xbox or computer, I assume it will work decently on my computer with my specs (see below) I Played this game at my friends house on PS2 which in truth looked like crap and am hoping the computer/xbox version looks better. These two things are holding me back from buying it. Any suggestions?

The only differences with the PC, PS2, and XBOX versions are that the PS 2 and XBOX versions offer that special co op cheat. other than that, I would get it on PC.

It got a 95% on PC Gamer.

Good chance of that with medium res and quality, but if you set the res and all the aa, af, and quality settings max i dont know if 50fps all the time is possible.

I have always enjoyed how GTA translated to the PC over the console versions. Aiming and stuff is easier it seems, especially sniping.
