It's not perfect, no. A couple of missions, like the infamous Demolition Man, are teeth-grindingly bad--there should be a way to just accept failure on non-crucial missions, not get any reward for it, and just move on to the next mission, but I found that if I avoided completing Demolition Man long enough, eventually I ran up against a brick wall and couldn't progress, so I had to go back and do it. Since I'm playing an a notebook PC with no keypad and no joystick, I actually had to go out and buy a cheap gamepad just to complete that one mission! Pretty annoying.
But other than that, I love the game. It's a great way to get rid of a long day's frustration. And I love loading up my favorite 80s tunes into the "MP3" station so that they'll play while I drive around town, with just a little hiss of static like a real car radio. So in spite of some less-than-perfect moments, I still give it 5 stars.
By the way, this game will run fine on a 1.4G, 256MB Centrino notebook (which has a 64MB "virtual video card" that steals memory from the main RAM)--a bit slow loading, and the graphics are probably not at their best, but it runs with no real problems.
Mouse Fix: If mouse won't click on options in game just right click shortcut, then go to properties, then compatibility, check disable visual themes, then apply.
The best part of this game is the cutscenes, which present very colorful chracters and quite silly predicaments. This game is not as epic in scope as the other games in the gta series. I tend to spend a large amount of time getting to know every detail of a game, and for the most part this game is very solid. most importantly, its a fun look back to the 80's, while staying true to the core of gta. Its a bit less fun to drive in this city than in other games, perhaps because its not as big or as complex as the others, however there is still plenty to do and see, and a great soundtrack. The AI drivers perform a bit better in this game than in gta 3, and overall its worthwhile to play if you want to go back and explore the gta series. Many of the characters in this game you will meet in future gta games.
