    Anybody else playing it yet?

    I am not much of a PS2 person at all, but this game is funny as hell. I am pretty hooked.

    Never in my life have I owned a video game thingy, just games for the computer. And I put maybe hours of effort into trying to complete that game. But i got to mad and frustrated so I thought it wasn't worth it if it's just making me mad.

    Well, my wife got me this for Christmas.. I'm having a blast with this game. That is one freaking huge map.. and I thought Vice city was a big map.

    Anyone gotten the big Ford monster truck yet? (you get it for winning the race at teh dome near the grove street house) I love driving over cars & stuff with that sucker. Too bad it's not a Chevy :frown1: . I also love that little rail buggy over in the other city (SF) that's parked near the beach, called a "bandito" .. (or something like that) that sucker has some good suspension.

    So far I have all the lower area of the map unlocked. I'm doing the missions over in San Fiero, or whatever it's called. LOL, I have over 400 million bucks from betting on the horse racing... quick way to make a little "mad money" :grin: .

    the game is fun....quite annoying at times i must admit...tonight (now actually) unlocked the last section of the map. The monster truck is actually parked in a trailer park outside san fierro...so it IS available if you don't complete that mission someone said. (i've only been able to complete 1 of the driving/race missions out of 5??) I went to the San Andres airport and stole a plane (jet is best cuz it doesn't loose altitude as fast)....it takes frigin forever, but you will get your pilot licence...my recommendation-don't fly over town! fighter pilots will shoot you down!! Just fly south....35 mins or so...I have a link to a FAQ website if your interested...PM me if u want it. (I didn't buy the $15 book...)

    off track betting....look at the map that came with the game, its downtown. Buy the closest property to the facility...bet as much as possible on the worst pony (lose, reload!) I bet 600K and 12:1 over 6 million....it just takes awhile..I haven't worried about$$ since, one less worry and getting thru the freakin missions is stressful enuff w/o worryin about $.

    The horse racing is under the big clover leaf in downtown Los Santos. look at the map that is on the back of the poster-map that came with the game. I believe that it shows it there and w/ the icon, in the icon legend at the bottom of the map.

    If it does not, it will be hard to explain. When you look at los santos, there is a large clover leaf, if you look closely, you can see 2 streets that pass under the clover on the south side of the clover. The upper, more northern street of the 2 is where you will fine the horse track place, right under the northbound highway. It is right across from a parking area. It just looks like a regular building, as the horse races are a video game betting deal. You can bet a max of 999995 per race if you have the cash. Bet on the 11/1 odds, and if you loose, reload and try again. To bet a lot, keep clicking the 5000 dollar amount.

    Yeah, most of the cars can be found in some location somewhere. I completed both of the stadium events, and both of the races that are missions.

    4 stadium events total

    There are three monsters, the ford for winning the 8-track race, the one in the trailer park(s10 or new f150) and the one you get from Michelle

    thanks for the tip. i've never worried about money , i just use a cheat.
    the same code for vice city that gives you body armor gives you body armor plus $250k. im always refilling the armor so the money just keeps rolling in

    Well, I just finished the story line missions last week. I have about 100 hours into it. I like the harrier jet, that thing is fun. I also got gold on all the flight training missions, so I have an attack chopper at the airfield now.

    Horse Racing, you actually rob one of the betting houses in the Catalina missions. That's how I found the first one. And it's not too far from a save point. bet load repeat until you win.

    The Monster truck is in a trailer park just south of the freeway intersection as you enter the second island.

    I still have not done any two player missions.
