Shotguns - I shot a cop who was running towards me and he flipped over the hood of my Vigero and was laying wounded on the ground. I never seen someone flip like that in V, they just tumble down and flop like cement.
The animation for flying through the windshield is better in IV. Its too f*cking fast in V its like they just got launched out of a f*cking jet.
The thunder sounds more realistic in V but in IV it has a more powerful boom to it, sounds atmospheric. Perfect for a sh*thole like LC, I like the flash it makes as soon as it starts to rain. Streets have a gloomy reflection and lights look better.
Better car handling, muscle cars have a bouncy feel, plus they can take a lot of damage. Unlike V if you hold the gas and brake the front wheels will lock up and you can powerslide for a while, you cant do this in V, its completely impossible.
Weapons have recoil, I like to use the basic weapon reticle, I dont like having a huge circle on the screen and it makes using an AK/M4 even better, gives you a reason to stop moving and time your shots, or fire in bursts.
Better rpg, the one in V feels like the old 3d era style where they fire like toys, maybe its just me but i prefer being able to knock down helicopters and seeing the smoke from the rocket spin, sometimes they'll shoot it and it'll fly back towards Niko lmao. Never seen that in V.
Motion blur, I dont think V has it, never bothered to even check. Speeding on a bike or in a car feels like your flying on the road, makes you feel like you can f*ck up and crash if you make one mistake.
Blueish tint at night, sometimes it will be clear but I like the blueish look as well, feels like the weather is capturing Niko's mood.
Tire smoke looks awesome, there's something cool about peeling off in a Sabre GT(unlike V this one has a turbo installed) and seeing the car shift its weight as you speed away from cops.
Niko will actually grab onto a f*cking ledge, its stupid trying to climb sh*t in V only to see them smack their f*cking head into a wall and die. And Niko has a better falling animation, he tries to land on his feet rather than instantly falling back first, jump out of a helicopter in V and they instantly shift their weight and fall on their back, you can actually toss Niko out a heli and see him get launched 100 feet.
Industrial vehicles like the packer or yankee have weight and you can smash vehicles and keep on going until the engine either shuts off or catches fire. Cant do this in V, and if you somehow manage to do it it'll be rare.
Daytime is too short in V, might just be me but it feels like the time cyc is all f*cked up. Its better in IV.
You can change the "Sniper Aim" in the controls menu, choose between left stick or right stick. Aim sensitivity is leveled perfectly. I think V tried to make it like MP3 but they failed at it. Changing the sound output makes certain weapons sounds heavier/lighter. Cars have a better sound. Switch it from "Stereo" to "Surround Side/Rear" and it'll change gun sounds. Makes the AK sound lighter for me, you can hear more of an echo when firing it on the street.
Edit: Cars have a better metallic look when its raining.
