Ok so I got the game a few hours ago and have been playing it for 3-4 hours, and I'm extremely shocked that I've already grown bored of it. Immediately during the first mission the car handling seemed okay. But once we got into the main world and started trying different cars, I realized this was it. I tried accepting it for what it is but it doesnt make sense. How  can rockstar go from a game like GTA IV to this. Here are some things that greatly disappointed me. (One thing that might have led to more disappointment for me only is that the graphics on my tv are jagged and the edges of things are pixelated, I think its a problem with my resolution and I have to adjust via the ps3.)

 

-The city doesn't seem that packed, though this isn't THAT much of a problem.

-The shooting in this game doesnt feel as "crunchy"...It feels less intense & more "fluid" when shooting a pistol in this game than gta iv.

-The CAR handling is pretty bad. The only good handling are with those large suburban looking SUVs- That really feels like a tightened GTA IV handling. But the normal cars and the super cars feel wayyy too light like an arcade game. There is no sense of mass when driving those vehicles. The cars turn too sharply and unrealistically  and drifting isnt possible for more than 2-3 seconds. You go by things soooo fast in this game that the world actually feels pretty small. I have no idea what the reviews were talking about honestly. If it had gta iv physics the world wouldve felt more real and big aka hard to travel in which would have been euphorically challenging.I also noticed that the damage over time is somewhat as good as GTA IV... BUT the immediate damage isn't as good as GTA IV... like when hoods fall off it looks like how it did in san andreas rather than a realistic gta IV animation.

 

-Physics aren't even close to gta iv. When I was driving and going over bumps, the cars would fly like an airplane, and when landing it had an unrealistic feel and sound to it.... Everything was just so shocking in its presentation because its not that good. GTA IV was so realistic that you can expect what would happen in a crash or a jump while driving. Here it is so arcade and game-like that you have no idea what your car will do in any situation, and you have less control because it is further away from reality and  you expect different outcomes. Its hard to describe.

 

-The planes/helicopters have horrible arcade controls. Again, no one had a complaint about helicopters in gta iv. They were perfect. In this game however, oh boy, the camera feels so stiff and the helicopter feels so unrealistic. It doesnt have any sense of mass either but acts as if it one of those dragonfly remote control planes, it can stop at any point in middle air in a fraction of a section, and it cant push its nose down realistically like if you want to shoot something, the arcade controls only allow the nose down for a few seconds...

Don't agree at all. I f*cking love it. Half of what you mentioned are positives to me. And the world is loaded far more than GTA IV with so much more to do.

This is a TROLL. Look at everything this troll has posted since a few days back. All he does is trolling, trolling and more trolling.

You think just the same as me, i agree with every word, i have that sharp edges and pixilation problems on my 360 too, even the GFX was better in IV..  ive been so hyped for this, a huge letdown, HUGE

OP, I think I know the answer to your problems...

 

R* is a company. Companies need to make money. How can you make good money with so many years of development?

  1. you develop for next gen and pc
  2. you dumb down the graphics and release it for current gen
  3. once the buzz goes down you sell it for next gen
  4. and you will sell it again to EVERYONE for PC as you can install mods there to bring back the 'realistic' car handling.

And all you lovely people who say there is no problem with car controls: have you ever tried to drive a car? Have you tried driving it fast? GTA IV was much much closer to reality than V.

That's because the shooting mechanics are that of Max Payne 3.

nah this dude is right. i completely agree. a minor change like the driving and damage can change the entire feel of a game. it feels fast and arcady leaving u buzzing by the world. also the nice cars off the start of the game leaves u not caring for cars at all since they are easy to get.

You overdosed it with the "realistic/unrealistic" stuff. Easy to stop taking you seriously after the 3rd time you reiterate it because it's obvious you're just saying it to get to people. It's too cliche at this point.

 

Other than that, fairly decent attempt.

 Although I can't comment on the game yet, I find it amusing you believe everything you read on Metacritic. And although it may not be true, there is a user review of 7 out of 10 from a private account saying he actually reviews for a magazine and was told he couldn't give it a score below 90 in the magazine.
