Adds the challenge of snow driving to the rogue racing game
Windows 8 / Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows XP
Because driving around like a jerk in Grand Theft Auto isn't enough, let's add snow! The Snow Edition mod for Grand Theft Auto IV: San Andreas is just all kinds of awesome. If you've never driven in snow--or driven at all--you're in for a face full of smash if you're not careful.
Why would we be careful in Grand Theft Auto anyway?
Before I talk about the driving, let's talk about the atmosphere. It's beautiful. We're not just looking at some random powered that covers all of the ground with ugly textures, the snow looks nice. Yes, even after Grand Theft Auto V and its wonderful graphics, the snow still looks nice.
The night lights of San Andreas are simply splendid, casting a warm glow over the passing powder as you navigate the city in a helicopter. Why not? The effects of the snow aren't as responsive as a fully integrated snow effect; snow doesn't flicker and fly as much as it should when you're skidding or landing an aircraft.
I'm mostly nitpicking, but since it's the Internet, that's normal. Skid marks and tire drag happen, but the important part is the wild driving and sliding that comes from going way too fast. Sometimes into other people.
Installation wasn't really a problem. If you have issues with the mod itself, try reinstalling or checking your system specs. The minimum requirements from Grand Theft Auto IV may not be enough, and the mod runs your installation up 4GB. Not bad if you have at least a mid-level gaming rig (quad core over 2.4Ghz, at least 4GB ram and more than 40GB of hard drive space left. Delete something!) for handling the game.
The cons are really more of my wishing out loud. It's a great mod from a great developer, and I'm sure it'll be an enjoyable addition to anyone looking for some extra mileage out of GTA4: San Andreas.
