Okay so I just got it for the ps3, and first off I have to say I was a little pissed off because when you first load the game it takes literally 10 minutes to load. I guess it loads a crap load of files so the in game action plays more seamlessly. But man it blew because i just wanted to jump in and play.
Okay on to the game. First off the cars are hard to drive. Really erratic, but after an hour I am getting used to it. Saw a Banshee but I was in the middle of a mission....man I was pissed about that. Drove some funky convertible, looked like a BMW, had a ton of high end torque, but the ass was all loosy goosy, could be a good car to use for a fast get away.
One quirk for me that has not been fixed is the in-car driving noise. Personally if I am in a car I want to listen to the radio, not the roar of the engine. I know you can turn it down, but it is really annoying to have to do this...again. Why not have the engine as a faint background noise, with talking and radio as the priority.
Funny thing is, I went to the apartment to save the game, ended up turning on the TV and watching like 30 minutes of TV..... then I realized...wtf am I doing. Here I am playing a game and I am watching Liberty City TV. So freaking odd....BTW- Bas Rutten is a hoot. Went on a date, I think I pissed her off. Oh well nothing new there.
Overall this game is keeping my attention way more than San Andreas was. I will not give this any type of rating until I am at least 25% through. I figure at that number I will be at least 15 hours into the game.
