GTA 3 is believe it or not, a pretty crappy game. I've a friend with a 2Ghz system, and a Radeon video card, and it runs kinda slow and the graphics are pretty crappy as well.

Game play isnt that good either. Of course the slowness and the crappy graphics could be a by-product of running it under Windows XP. I've not heard from anyone whos tried running it under Windows 98/ME, but I would assume although they might fair better with video, the game would still be quite choppy.

Seems like they wrote this thing for a supercomputer or something. I know many people who are greatly displeased with GTA 3.

On a side note, GTA2 (also a piece of crap).. but GTA the original is still a fun little game, even though the graphics might be somewhat elementary, its still a fun little game (I just run around killing all the cops.. ahh) :P

I run it under XP Pro without problems. You need to update XP with a patch. The info on this is available on GTA3's website.

I don't have a "supercomputer", but, I do have an Asus P4T-E with i850 chipset, 1gig RIMM and the Asus 8460 Ultra 128mb graphics card. The Audigy Platinum and Inspire 5.1 digital 5700 series speakers don't hurt either.

No slow or crappy graphics. Check the patch, I DID have a problem at first, but, after installing the patch, no probs.

Yeah we tried the patch, it improved game play a little bit, but not really too much, system specs far exceed minimum requirements, and after playing the game for a few hours... its not really that good

Internet is frustratingly slow today out here in the boonies. Don't know why.

'Slow' is the speed the loco collective adopts new facts. Please update your use of that term to reflect that speed.

Internet is very fast today. I suppose yesterday was an upgrading day for Bell.
