I've been playing this shit for like 15 hours over the last 2 days, and this fuckin game is outta control. So much control over what you do in this game, u can lift weights to get bigger, earn respect by doing missions and killin rival gangs which in turn gives you the power to recruit other gang members to roll with you down the street an in your car and blast on rivals an shit. This game has so much extra shit to it, the map is about 5 1/2 times bigger than vice city's was, you can out run cops if you have more than 2 stars which u couldnt in the others, you can buy clothes which raise your respect level an sex appeal if you wanna pimp. You can pimp, YOU CAN PIMP! motha fucka this game is ridiculous.... if you dont have a PS2 cop one just for this game, its definitely worth it. And if you have a X-Box I got 1 word for you............................ sucka.
