^Plus, Rockstar stated pre release that the driving in V would be ''the driving of GTA IV with a couple of tweaks and fixes''... yeah sure, my ass. If by tweaks and fixes, they mean completely ignoring and leaving out of the game essential things like suspension and body roll, weight shifting, on road/off road conditions, than yes that makes a whole lot of f*cking sense. Things that you know .. make you feel like you're in an environment with some damn gravity and air, to make you feel like your pushing the machine you're driving to its limit. Sure yeah its fun weaving through traffic at 200 mph in a supercar, but it requires no f*cking skill at all. It's not just about ''turning easier'', but also having a different feel to all cars. In GTA IV, you knew the Sentinel was light as sh*t, you knew it could turn easily, you could feel it in the joystick. Same thing with the Patriot, you knew that motherf*cker would plow through everything in its way, no f*cks given. But you can't do this in V can you, huh ? If you get surrounded by police cars in a Sandking XL, no matter how big your truck is and how much it weights, you're f*cked. Nothing will move. And you call this an improvement ? Hell, even Saints Row has more believable physics than that ! Its just a shame Rockstar listened too much to the whiners, they'd be better off acting like EA and showing a golden finger to those complaining about the wrong stuff.
Eeeeeeexactly. Having a single cop car ram into the back of my Patriot sending it sprawling across the road only to be magically boxed in by an immoveable car (of any size) can be game ruining. There is no good reason that this should happen and it sucks the fun out of so many different aspects of the game.
In previous GTAs (and every other similar game for that matter) If I saw someone taking cover behind their car I would just ram into their car so it crushes them against something or knocks them to the ground, giving me time to either shove the car on top of them or shoot them. Now If I try the same thing, my 6,500 pound Patriot is stopped instantly by their 3,400 pound sports car and they can pop up and shoot me in the face. What kind of bull sh*t is that?!?
I should have been able to shove that little car right on top of your even littler body, that way its a fair fight at least. The guy on foot could take me out before I get close to him with some well placed shots but if I get close without being shot I should be able to use my 6,500 pound Patriot as an instrument of death and put myself or other heavy things (like cars) in the area on top of him. Not just get f*cked over because instead of pushing the car on top of him it just brought me to a halt allowing the guy on foot to shoot at my now slowly reversing head.
I don't get how people can't see the problem with this...
