I keep trying to play it more because when I complain people defend the game and it makes me think If I play it more it will get better. The more I play it the more I realize how it is completely downgraded from GTA IV in terms of physics,damage models, sounds,gfx etc. Without the right physics, the game doesnt even exist. There are many bugs as well. The city doesn't look that polished, like the ROADS look like they are ps2 graphics, the city looks great though. Also at nighttime, does anyone else think the lighting effects on the BUILDINGS look too poorly textured? It looks like in one of those old ps2 games how the buildings look at night, it has no natural look to it.
One of the easiest way to see how baddddddd the physics/driving is, is to spawn/steal a motorcycle. ANYONE WHO DOESNT BELIEVE THE PHYSICS SUCK, I DARE YOU TO DRIVE A MOTORCYCLE! Drive the motorcycle and try to do a wheelie, try to take it into the mountains. The physics are unbelievably bad its almost worse than san andreas. The bikes are glued to the ground, there is no such thing as drifting in a bike anymore like you could do in GTA IV. You can literally reverse up a vertical mountain. You can do 45 degree turns back and forth without losing ANY control whatsoever. There is no such thing as suspension on the bike.
Before you defend anything, TRY IT OUT YOURSELF! Use the motorcycle spawn cheat if you have to. Also, after you do that, try drive the NRG 900 in GTA IV, and tell me the difference. GTA IV was 10000x more fun because the physics allowed fluid stunts..In GTA V the stunts seem like a scripted arcadey game its unbelievably worse than what I expected.
Please Rockstar, can you just recall the game or include some really heavy patches that reworks the entire driving experience, I am 100% fedup of the game right now and Ive only played around 9 hours total from midnight launch. Also why arent the medium planes operable if the 747s? Also the 747s blow up if you hit the TIRE on anything?
also when you hit a car and fly out of the roof, you die almost instantly, not only this, but this also shows how ragdoll effects have been downgraded as well. In GTA IV you wouldnt fly out like a bullet, but you would have time. In here you fly out like a bullet and die, which makes it unenjoyable. Also when you die you cant look around/zoom in, it just says wasted and your done.
