The cars in GTA 4 look like they are rolling on ice! It's hard to control the car and it's annoying!
Of all the ones i think GTA 4 has the worst ice skating driving.
Does anyone has the same opinion, or do you like it like that?

For a while I thought you we talking about the player's ice skating-like movement if you time the controls right.

Driving a muscle car in the rain is hard but otherwise it's easy and fun just be careful

Driving is easy when you get used to it but hard at first

Not really, the driving in IV is more realistic than any of the others, and if that makes it harder to control so be it. Thats why we learn!

...Muscle Cars + Rain = Muchos fun!

when i switch to gta, the car movements doesn't seem ralistic to me. A 2 ton machine doesn't "jump" when it it crashes to a sidewalk lol
but i reckon that i must practice more biggrin.gif

It's more realistic, but I preferred it more arcade-y. Personal preference, I suppose.

Love the way only people who can't drive properly in the game complain about it.

I fell in love with the driving physics the minute I played GTA IV for the 1st time. I actually prefer it in all future GTA games (for the consoles and PC's anyway). I find the driving very easy. It is very fun to drive in GTA IV as well. Not hard at all for me.

Maybe it's just me.

You're just not used to the driving physics in Gta IV. I started playing with Roman's taxi (off the boat) and it was so hard. But I got the hang of it. I'm trying to drift but I just make small drifts. The best car for that is the Dukes. In rain, it's too slippery.

You just need to try different cars and test them in the city and on the highway. Or go online and try to find a game where people don't shoot everything and go to the Francis International Airport. Great place to practice your driving with no cops smile.gif

If you're used to Burnout Paradise (right?) physics, try fast cars...maybe? Turismo is good for that and Super GT, just to name a few. They're fast. I also got Burnout Paradise but i'm not much into "too fast and sharp turning" physics.

Just practice your driving and find a ride that suits your style. I recommend you try the Cavalcade. A look-alike Cadillac Escalade. One of my favorite with great suspension. The suspension system is unique, for me. I'll never get so much good driving from any other game, not even from Forza Motorsport 2.

Just keep on trying and don't get discouraged. If you get online, people think they're so good at driving they throw in 360's and 180's but they crash into something and that makes an easy kill. devil.gif

It's pretty hard at first, I wasn't too good at driving when I first had the game but after a few days, I got used to it and I'm good.

I have no problem driving... just because it doesn't handle like a box eg, Saints row 2... doesn't mean it's sh*t/ice.. it's realistic an fun or challenging and fun, how ever you want to look at it.. either way it's fun, realistic and despite what some gamers say, not too hard to drive.

You shoulda seen what I done to my real life car, admittetly I hit a telegraph pole in the process but when I hit the curb it done some real damage. I ended up flying through the air and landed on my roof.
Be glad your doing it in a game and not real life.

Oh and the reason I crashed in the first place is because the car basically started ice skating, without the ice.


Then there was my bro who flipped his car over the bonnet from hitting a curb, so yes a car can jump from crashing into a curb/sidewalk.

Niether of these was in a city or crowded area, they were on winding country roads.

I agree, only time GTA4 drving is slightly hard is while its raining. GTA4 driving seems so much better tan any previous gta and I now find it hard to go back to GTA3 series style of driving. At first in GTA4 I had problems but only cause I was driving like I did in GTA3, once I got used to it I loved it, if you have problems its probably your braking too much and trying to turn at the same time. Brake first, then let go of the brake and turn.

Maybe this is only slightly over dramatic, but if you have problems with the IV cars, please don't get your license and share a road with me tounge.gif hehe

Most realistic look and feel I've ever felt in a game, even better than gran turismo to me. Some things are a bit too strong, but mostly, it feels as it should, imo.

just played some more, probably still hours away from finishing the game, and i am more used to it.
it is very realistic. The only difference is, when driving in real life, everything looks faster.

the cars look more solid then the other gta's

The driving physics are lot more realistic.

I remember when I first took control of a car I ended up going straight into a wall, shows how easy the cars were to drive in SA.

Pretty hard at first but when you get used to how to approach the corners it becomes alot easier.
