GTA IV: San Andreas is a total conversion mod for Grand Theft Auto IV and The Episodes from Liberty City, which will bring back the good old San Andreas map into GTA IV, using the powerful RAGE Engine.
So it looks awesome. The bugs left are also pretty hilarious to watch. Cars have no traffic AI whatsoever. I've seen cars driving in both directions on both sides of the highways and trying to cross over, ending up on top of barriers. My own gang started shooting at me on approach. BMX bikes sound like dirt bikes. I'm finding random out of place vehicles (like quads and BMX/dirt bikes on the strip). Found a flaming jetpack next to a flaming NGR in the desert airplane graveyard. They were on fire for a solid minute before they exploded. It really is a good mod but I'm glad it is installed separately from SA because while it looks cooler (than SA) I was disappointed that I couldn't do missions. I know that's icing on the cake and this is really GTA IV with SA overlaid rather than the other way around but maybe version 4 or 5? And planes. Was so excited to fly planes around the redone world. Nope. All in all, solid download that any GTA fan who likes to **** around in the worlds (and what GTA fan doesn't) should try but can only give it an 8 until more bug fixes and missions (or at least **** to do) are added.
P.S. Not sure about that guy who found a trojan horse or w/e but he's probably a troll because I did a full scan after reading that and found nothing.
The Installer and Trailers are well done. However I did not like the game. It is not a beta, more some kind of an alpha. The low-res landscape does not fit to the latest version of RAGE which is also not optimized for long distance viewing. Also the car-physics were awful. When the streets are too steep it will collide instead of drive up. Sports cars kept rolling over landing on the roof all the time. Lightning was pretty weak. In the top north-west of the map there was grass on the street. Police cars did not move and had invincible police officers in it that did not react to the player. The gang wars where pretty boring and last too long. The parachute event in Los Santos did not trigger. Sorry, I uninstalled it. Waiting for Gritengine.com to mature.
