    Since the game is officially out now we should have a thread for it instead of the pirated copy thread.

    I've completed the game, and it's fucking awesome. We can use this thread to share tips/hints/online strats and such.

    Bought it today, I'm at around 5%, seems pretty good so far. Got it on PS3, graphics aren't as good as GTA, but so far in my few hours of playing it has a ton more customization and shit to buy then GTAIV. Haven't tried the online play yet. The last couple games I've bought I ended up wishing I rented them, no regrets buying this one so far.

    I've had it downloaded ever since it came out, and only just now got a modded XBox to try it out with. But now I have to give that box up since I was just modding it for him.

    Ok.

    Are you really into graphics? I mean to the point where if something looks great but lacks gameplay you're still happy? Then this game is not for you. It uses near enough the same graphics as the first just a bit more polished.

    However, if you like gameplay then holy fuck this game is for you. The customization of the character will get you impressed almost instantly (like many sports games).

    The story line is awesome. There's (I just seen you sign on lol random note) 3 main gangs at the beginning each having their own storyline arc, and then a final gang (sort of) at the end that will finish the story. I was more interested in these stories than GTA's (I know GTA4 has meant to have the best story ever blah blah(Don't get me wrong here ethier I like GTA4 and am not a hater))

    There is a shit load of activies which I haven't seen any that feel like a burden yet (some hard, but I still enjoy them).

    Alot of shit to discover like tags, cds, stunts, secret places.

    Alot of items to unlock when completing the game (Even some you won't even know about until you do something that you really wouldn't have though would unlock something.

    100% seems like a good challange.

    You could probably finish story in 20-30 hours if you're fast possibly less. I completed it around 25-30.

    I don't see me putting the game down for a long time. The single player will keep me going for ages!

    Co-op is :bowdown: apart from some lag issues with some people. I haven't seen a boundry yet like mercs 2. Do activites and missions with mates. Also you can help a friend out in co-op with a friend but it'll actually load your char/money/cars and stuff. so I was with a newb yesterday, his first time playing it and I was in my super rich car, and 450k on hand :p

    Dude it's just awesome.

    Ah well, Luckily it's not the type of game that once it's finished you've done with it. I can imagine myself in a few months killing peds with my pimp cane shotgun :p

    Never mind, they lumped it in with the plastic surgeon...that makes sense! :hsugh:

    Still a fun game though, but a bit disappointing car physics is so twitchy and they didn't seem to make an effort to improve the graphics. Gameplay makes up for it though.

    Pop the old one in. The graphics are substantially better than SR1. Still pretty muted in the color department though.

    But holy fuck this game is awesome. I haven't even started doing missions yet, I'm just running around discovering all the stores and shooting ATMs for cash. Also, I am wearing a tweed suit with Yakuza tattoos underneath. :bowdown:

    Edit: Also, you earn respect points for driving like an asshole. That's just awesome.

    Why are there not more people in here? This game is fucking rad. I'm going to trade in GTA4 now. There really is no reason to even bother putting it in the 360 ever again.

    I wish there were more tattoo options.

    Also...where can I find lip/nose/and other piercings? I can only find lobe piercings, and no gauges? :(

    Yeah, I didn't find any piercing options besides ears. As fas as tattoos go, I just went with the full pieces. There could be more options, but at least they have the big pieces instead of just little ones.
