Might Have To Go Back To The Ps2 Version
Posted 08 June 2005 - 04:11 PM
Xbox version has better graphics, framerate, sound, and of course custom music.
But dear god the CONTROLS are shit. I know some of the reviewers complained about white/black changing weapons... but that's easy compared to the rest.
Most of the problems are while in a car - I haven't even gotten in an air vehicle (though I'm thinking of cheating just to see if I can tolerate the controls). For instance, looking behind you requires you to press BOTH Bl and W buttons. Both. To look to the left you hit W, to look to the right you hit B. To Fire to the left you hit BOTH A and W, to fire right you hit Bl and B. Not fun. When we got in our first drive-by I felt neutered. Sure I was the one driving so I could kid myself that I was preoccupied, but it's never been a problem before
Anyone else feel the same way? I'll give it an hour or two more, but despite all its advantages tech-wise, it's kinda a pain to play it.

Do you realize how difficult the flying missions are going to be? Like the one where you gotta fly the plane close to the ground so that you don't get picked up by radar.

The flying thing is why I want to cheat and drop in some planes. If they're not easy to control I'm most certainly done. As it stands now I'm not happy about drive-bys sucking balls. It'd be ok if you could configure the controls like in the other one, but you're stuck with their (IMO Shitty) default.
I think the only way I'd buy the game (rented it) is if they update it somehow so you can reconfigure things. I quit playing the PS2 one for nothing I'm starting to think

At first I liked the lack of the orange glow/haze, but it's kinda like a neat characteristic of the first city. It makes it look like crap and gloomy, but that's what the city really is, right? San Fiero looks fine, and it's so gay and happy it should be that way

There are plenty of reviews that back my comment up. Just read the first page of the gamespot review. It looks fine in 480i, but when playing in 480p it looks the way I said. I know I could play it on 480i instead of 480p, but have you ever played a 480i game on a 52 inch HDTV, its not fun. The image looks like crap and leaves "trails" everywhere and will remind you of first gen PS2 games.

Ugggh.. Don't mention "EDTV"... all it is is a crappy rip off of High definition...
Posted 08 June 2005 - 07:55 PM
EDTV isnt even close to HDTV, so how can it be a rip off?
SDTV: Standard-Definition Television supports only 480i (interlaced)
EDTV: Enhanced-Definition Television supports 480p (progressive)
HDTV: High-Definition Television supports 720p (progressive) and/or 1080i (interlaced)

No, you mean it was just a horrible movie.....

im not sure how the ps2 controller could be consider better suited for that game, i mean really i dont ever use the second L/R buttons so it doesnt matter. for driving the xbox should use the triggers as gas break for a better driving setup and the face buttons for other stuff opening up more buttons cause you dont have to hold a button for gas. but oh well they should have at least gave the option to reconfig the button layout.

On xbox now you have to hit w/bl to look l/r AND hit A or B to fire. Quite a distance there. And of course to look back you have to hit bl + wh, which isn't easy on xbox, but is easy to hit L2 and R2 at the same time on the PS2.
The stick is friggin worthless as a camera. who cares? I wish they made it look like in hte double pack
