Excellent footage, but it just leaves me wanting more. :D The car handling looks much better than previously, just jabbing the handbrake to go around corners was too unrealistic previously, but now it looks like they have real weight. I don't know what else to say, it just looks incredible. A few other points, when Niko smashed through the windshield, I thought it was cool, but it looks like high speed collisions are a no-no now. When the pedestrian started on Niko, that was great as well. I guess different pedestrians will react in different ways, and I only saw a little bit of the new radio stations font, but it looked pretty classy.

This HAS to be re-posted as news.

I have to admit I have never heard any of the songs that are listed above but I am sure they will be great, R* are really good producing soundtracks, I cant think of a bad one they ahve created really.

I must somehow get that Nas song! And if anybody suggests buying the soundtrack... fat chance of that happening. :lol:

Aw, my first post. You may call it "arrogant". I prefer "foreshadowing".

u knw that the rapper cj was the voice 4 cj rite?

i think he was

yah im glad they finally got decent rap Nas is the best

in San Andreas all the rap was kindof gay cept the nwa and too short

.

xcellent footage, but it just leaves me wanting more. The car handling looks much better than previously, just jabbing the handbrake to go around corners was too unrealistic previously, but now it looks like they have real weight.
