It only gets better...my advice (after having just finished it) is to indulge more in the minigames and side missions instead of completely focusing on the main misions to beat the game. I feel like I missed out on some of the game by just focusing on main story progression.
Just my .02
Agreed - Take a break and do some other things. I've sat and watched the tv, surfed the web, and did side missions. The only annoyance is the constant phone messages that you should go do this or that - which throws you back into the main story again.
My only gripe about this game is the lack of gas tanks. My fav thing with SA was to get a bunch of cars together and hit one of the gas tank filler doors and watch the show.
i got to about 15% completion and am bored of it now. I havent popped it in for over 3 weeks now.
^ How do you turn off the phone?
I got to about 22% and same. Boring as hell, repetitive missions, storyline that is not one tenth as compelling as the reviews made it out to be. Hey, chase down another guy driving away from you on a train/car/motorcycle! Yawn.
good article...havent touched the game in almost a month. too repetitive.
ill take san andreas > iv any day.
its all the same "go here, pick this up, bring it here"..."go here, kill him"..."go here, steal this car, take it here"
probably THE best mission i felt broke that mold was the "bank heist" mission. that was definitly fun. but other then that,every mission follows one of those. after awhile driving across an entire city (ik you can take cabs) gets really boring. i should mention i have about 55% of the game done.
dont get me wrong, its definitly a decent game, but i dont really feel its anything more then that. its time rockstar did something new and refreshing with gta.
LOL...just wait until you clear the 4th mission of AC. That game's the king of giving you the same mission over and over.
