Turn the virtual city of San Andreas into a winter wonderland with GTA IV: San Andreas Snow Edition.

Grand Theft Auto is one of the top racing franchises of all time. Since its first release, the developers kept coming up with new and innovative ways to race against virtual worlds. GTA IV: San Andreas turns you loose in the city and asks you to race against competitors generated by the computer. Completing certain objectives within the game will help you unlock new vehicles and weapons, but you can also earn cash that helps you advance.

GTA IV: San Andreas Snow Edition is a popular mod that transforms the game and makes this large city look like a winter wonderland. If you thought racing in crowded city streets was hard, you won't believe what the game is like when you race on streets covered in ice and snow. Though this mod does require that you already have the game on your computer, installing it is a snap. Once you download the file, you unzip those folders and follow the simple instructions to add the mod to your existing game.

Drifting is one of the aspects that players love most about the original game. As you drift around corners and curves, you'll increase your speed and work your way past other cars on the track or road. With this snow mod, you need to rely on your skills to drift around those same turns without slipping on the ice and sending your car right into a hazard. It adds a level of play to the game that is completely unique.

Though the winter effects are nice, you might feel like something is missing. This mod simply adds white snow and ice to the existing graphics without adding too much to the game. Some players dislike that the effects don't move or change as they race, and others don't like that the mod just shows snow on the road and other objects without actually showing the snow falling. The file of this mod is also pretty large and requires that you have a good graphics card.

For those who play Grand Theft Auto IV: San Andreas regularly, this mod is a great way to change the look and feel of that game. You'll have fun racing against competitors and exploring the city with the snow and ice all around you.

Pros:

  • Turns the GTA San Andreas world into a virtual winter wonderland
  • Adds ice and snow effects to all objects in the game
  • Download and installation takes mere minutes
  • Easy to install
  • Makes sliding and drifting in the game more fun

Cons:

  • Requires a good graphics card
  • Takes up a lot of storage space
  • Does not really change the way you play
