Driving is much better than in GTA IV, feels less stiff, more natural and I feel like I'm really in control, expect when I got the wrong car at the wrong place or terrain. (Comet in rain or in the desert, that turns just...freaking horrible)
yeah, lack of suspension feels real natural. as well as the fantastic, natural feeling collisions. like doing a 100 into a traffic jam and barely denting the front bumper. oh cant forget the inconsistent windshield ejections. all feels very natural
This is a game. Not a simulator.
Do people want driving to be so realistic you have to spend 5 minutes picking the egnition to start... perhaps a mini game where you have to cut some wires under the wheel and twist the correct ones together.
Then, manually shift the car into drive... manual or auto... have options to check rear view mirrors before exiting drive ways etc... have to stop at red lights or face getting tickets in your sms every 2 weeks along with your income. The option to put on your seat belt or not. Adjust the seats for comfort. Use your indicators when going around corner. Press something to activate the windsheild wipers when it rains or too much mud is on the windsheild. Spin the sticks of the controller around to wind down the window instead of break it. Have a spare tyre in the boot for when you get a flat. Stop the car, park it, put the hand brake on, exit the car, open the boot, pull out the jack, pull out the tyre, place the jack, jack the jack, undo each nut of the tyre.... you get the point by now.
How realistic do you want it in a game where the moment you are killed, you are released from hospital 6 hours later with a bump on your head, but fully working vital organs and you have regained usage of your legs. Man, the doctors and surgeons in GTA games are miracle workers.
