Breaking necks, throwing people, just better in general...

The most in depth one for sure. IV is probably the only other GTA I can think of that could compete with it. Too bad VCS doesn't have counters.

VCS combat system is nice, brutal and can be vicious. I agree with Pastry on the fact that GTA 4 melee system is the only one that could compete with stories, to me these two are the best of the series.

Both VCS and IV close combat systems are easily the best in the series, but both could greatly benefit from the feature from the other system. VCS could use counters, while IV would be better with grapples.

Definitely. Only problem is the fact that you can't move while using melee weapons. Some is the rampages were insanely difficult because of this.

VCS' combat system was one of the greatest surprises in the game. I mean, except for In the Air Tonight, in the game there is almost no instance where you have to fight hand-to-hand against someone, yet the dev put their effort into this functionality. It's always welcome, of course.  :lol:

Disagree, IV had the best combat system.

They had all of these cool features in San Andreas, Vice City Stories and V yet failed to keep any of it around in V. It makes absolutely no sense how much they dumbed just about everything down in V.
