The setting is what I hate most, but really I can get past it. I kind of forgot about it. Then the music comes on.

I wish that when you saved a game, it saved your options with it. Because I hate having to either a) go to the options>audio menu and turn the music all the way down, or b) flip through the radio til it is off every time i get in a car or something.

The Tec-9 is awesome, you can run around while locked on a guy and shoot him. Getting a tec-9, then killing a cop at an intersection is a good way to start the fun. After you run out of Tec-9 bullets I suggest using the cop's handgun because you can also run around with it. I heard your endurance goes up as you progress, i don't know about it though. If you tap X alot you can run pretty fast, and it is easy to escape the cops even if they are in cars, just don't get run over. If you run out of ammo, run around near their cars and hit them alot for their guns. Or steal a car and drive off til you can get a gun.

That is just something I like doing, I don't own the game so I just screw around when I play it.

GTA Vice City for PC will kick some serious ass. As for hitman 2, another really c00 game. Like what was said of just having fun and blasting everyone, or silent gameplay... Tiz tru. What I am curious about is what is next for the GTA series? Now the question is compare GTA 3 to Vice City... Is one better or are they equal? :+)

It is the same with Halo and Splinter Cell on XBOX. I like all three games.

I think the next GTA should be in the future, not too far, just like 60 years. I think there should be a few secret cars that hover and go really fast but can't take much damage. No lasers, none of that gay movie future stuff. Just like a dark grungy future. Have things like streets 2 stories higher than the streets on the ground, and over population and all the cars that came out within the past year.

GTA3 was present, Vice City was past, next will be either the future or another country (anyone remember that one set in britain?).

I just hope they add more features and stuff.

But it is really annoying when people say that VC is just like GTA3. First off, it isn't just like it. Second, it isn't supposed to be some huge improvement or something. Those people are idiots.

GTA3 was fun for alot of reasons, so they kept the core game and gave you new things to do in a new setting.

well i dont know = ) Xbox is more then just Splinter Cell and Halo
Personally i hate Halo, Its gay, Killing little Green men = (
Wait till Halo 2, It would be way Better
Anyways Splinter Cell is a great game, Its like Metal Gear Solid is the same thing, But Splinter cell has better Graphics and for Fun

I also agree Splinter Cell is what is hyped out 2 be, Got the highest gaming score with a 9.6, Halo i agree with u, Its way to over rated

I think that Halo is OVER rated and that Unreal Championship is under rated

Could someone explain how Halo is overrated?

Yes, the AI i think was overrated. I expected alot more, but it was still better than most console AI.

Ice- you didn't give any reasons why Halo is overrated. Personal preference doesn't count.

CN- no. Sega can make games but since the Sega Genesis they have been pulling hardware out of their ass. XBOX's hardware specs clearly show it is a better system. The games of course decide what system is worth a buy. Microsoft has plenty of money to put into getting XBOX on top, not to mention all the contracts game companies signed.

All the usual complaints about the XBOX are just stupid. "It's too big, it weighs more than my sister, the controller is so big I can't swallow it, it has a built in harddrive so I don't have to use those nifty memory cards." And it keeps going.

They made a smart move discontinuing the Dreamcast. They couldn't afford to keep it up because not enough people were buying it, so they stick with what they do best- games.

Do I think the XBOX will go the way of the dreamcast? No. I had a sure feeling that dreamcast would fail and it did, but I have the opposite feeling about the XBOX.

im not gonna get into a arguement about the xbox, but if you want a system like the xbox just go the extra step and get a gaming PC same difference except for a few games that never come to PC...i really just dont like the xbox's games and i've also heard some things about the companies they signed on with, and many japanese developers that pulled out...that may just be a rumor i heard i dont really have a strong opinion on the matter

LOL. There is no right or wrong answer. You can love Age of Mythology and I can hate it, is it exactly overrated or is it that I THINK it is. What ever the majority of the public thinks is what sets the rating, standards about that game... Yet to you personally it sux! (Age of Mythology is c00 just not my type). See the sides here. Anyway now now kids, play nicely. So that can apply to GTA:VC, Splinter Cell, etc. But to finish this all consoles suck, hail the best... The computer! :+)

Yeah I told my friend sam I want a new computer more than an XBOX, he thought I was crazy but that's because he isn't a nerd.

Really, I do prefer computer over consoles. But I prefer XBOX over the other consoles. The XBOX itself is not overrated. Bent- j00r a newb.

We should probably stop posting this nonsense and close this topic. or go back to the topic...if only we knew what it was.

GudLars, try your isp's homepage for gaming servers, for example my isp is iprimus (www.iprimus.com.au) and they have a gaming section with servers, and if that doesn't work try google.com
