For those playing Vice City on a PC, you "steer" the camera with the
mouse while driving, much like walking around in VC. This allows you
to looks around corners without waiting for the lag of the "auto"
adjust. It is also useful for looking up and down hills, of which SA
has plenty. It's just another thing to fiddle with. More total
immersion or something. It becomes sort of automatic after a while, so
yes, it gets easier. I've noticed that "tilt camera up", "tilt camera
down" is reversed betweeen GTAIII and Vice City. It is also reversed
between Vice City and San Andreas. Well, at least GTAIII and San
Andreas seem to be consistent. The only real bummer is that I got used
to using my "mouse hand" to control Wheelie/Stoppie/Handbrake in VC
when on a motorcycle. I can't do this in San Andreas as I have to
steer the camera.

Luckily I've haven't talked to any black people who weren't video game
characters after playing San Andreas all day. Even I'd want to smack
the white off of me :)

I mastered it last night (the camera that is, not the whole game). Part of
my problem was that my old graphics card wasn't quite up to the job, so as
soon as there was a bit of action everything slowed down so much that the
camera seemed to get way out of control.

I'm a convert to the new camera system now, it's good to be able to see
what's around the corner when driving, and the cinematic view is brilliant,
especially when flying a plane.
