My main gripe is that the controls are SO sensitive and the cars just dont seem to have any weight to them.
A couple of examples:
- Using the brakes when cruising puts you in reverse in the blink of an eye.
- Slamming the brakes at high speed doesnt even cause the car to lock up.. in fact there arent even any skidmarks even though you went from 100mph into reverse within 10 metres..
- Over and understeer is not portrayed correctly, in fact you cant really slide into corners mixing up the braking and accelerating to powerslide..
- Hard breaking isnt portrayed in the suspensions. Slamming the breaks doesnt push the front of the car down like it did in four. In fact weight distribution is all wrong..
Im really trying to like it, but i cant I cant help thinking that the driving in 4 was much more fun(and much more realisitc). The amount of damage the cars can take doesnt really bother me, but in gta4 i even used to enjoy the long drives from mission to mission because the drive felt realistic. That element just isnt there anymore.
(This is just my honest opinion..)
