Ok i know theres alot of post about this...
Ive played IV online religiously since its release, i have 1000+ races on leader boards ,Hundereds of Hours on Free Roam,And appreciate how awesome the damage and handling system was in IV like alot of you
The handling on V its self isnt bad, but what we can no longer do is peel outs ,you regain traction far to easy, on IV i could smoke the wheels up the whole road,But on V you just get grip as soon as you creep forward from burnout...
Same thing with motorbikes,what i love to do in IV is leen forward and could do a mean burn out up the road,you cant do these sort of things any more, every thing has way to much grip even grass
Even on a wooden surface you can hardly do i donut...
Pulling Wheelie on push bikes seems abit lame also,i have to practice some more
Aslo you can take out massive power poles and it doesnt even damage your car alot ,it kinda feels abit cheap
The handling is still fun tho and the damage is still good somewhat,but just those small things i mentioned really made IV fun,no more tapping up to get extra speed either
But the rest of the game makes up for it,the GFX are just insane !!!
Rant ovr back to V
