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.
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.
Very promising remake of a favorite of mine.
the rage engine makes an already great game look like pure eyecandy, and you know it's gonna be a fuckload of fun to trash the whole of Las Venturas.
i'd like to see some gameplay improvements implimented, just to make it a bit more refreshing, the only other thing i have an issue with is that some of the main character models could look a lot better with newer textures, but i'm sure that'll get fix'd/modded.
well done to all those working on the project, this is what gta fans like to see.
