Hi I was looking through an American forum and found these very convincing pics supposedly out of the November OPM of 2 player in action, take a look your self. I have taken them into paint and I canít see any signs of cutting and pasting so I am convinced. What do you lot think? The thing that makes them more believable is that there not screenshots never realised.

Thanks for proving my point.
I take it you've never actually played a game in your life, and have no concept of what's actually enjoyable.

"maybe it goes into split screen once you are a certain distance from each other"

Ahaha. Slap your mother for me.

looks like we are getting a 2 player mode...

Publisher
Rockstar Games
Developer
Rockstar North
Genre
Third-Person Action Adventure
Origin: U.K.
Number of Players: 1-2
Release Date
October 25, 2004
ESRB Rating: M

But that's only a smidgen of the different kinds of missions that players can look forward to. San Andreas does offer more than 100 different quests and challenges after all, and boasts everything from the scenarios mentioned above to escort missions, stealth-oriented home robberies, on-rails shooting situations, traditional car races, and lots, lots more. There's even an unparalleled selection of mini-games to undertake in your spare time -- including a Dance Dance Revolution-type rhythm game to play when in clubs, a small collection of arcade games that play exactly like Tempest, Asteroids, and Defender, and a fully-realized pool game that has its own physics system and betting option. And don't forget, you can also travel into town and bet on horse races, gamble at practically every known game inside the Las Venturas casinos, and even team up with second player for two-person rampages.

A bit like how player 2 could control Tails Sonic 2+ then?

Sounds pap, but you could pull off some sweet two-sided drive-bys...

Well there is indeed a 2-player aspect to the game.
Want to know more then read below


SPOILER

In one of the missions you save a girl from a burning house, she becomes your girlfriend, you take her to bars and stuff and perform drive by shootings. If you go to her house there is an icon, press any button on the 2nd controller and she is now playable with the second player.
You can room around together but the area is limited, can't go to far of the screen before you stop.
Can drive around and preform drive by's etc but all in all its a bit pap and I guess most will just ignore it altoghether.

I dont think you'd be able to get 2 players unless its simply one player drives the other shoots.

It couldn't work without it being split screen or on two compeltely different screens. The reason it worked with old games is because you either had a set path to follow, or had nowehrre to go, with a free roaming game like GTA, it just wouldn't work.

Oh and also, the best RPG is Zelda, not Final Fantasy where they dragged it way on and had a poor concept and everything. What a loser game!
