Power Unlimited (Dutch Magazine) Preview

Recommended Posts

ETB

Hi all,

 

Just received my magazine and there's a 4 page preview in it.

No new screens but it has some nice info.

 

- You can't take most corners full throttle like in previous gta's, you have to ease on the throttle.

- Getting into the subway and entering a train, then getting out after a few stations will not have any loading times at all.

- Mobile phone will have a camera and allows to play music.

- When an enemy has been shot and the gun drops on the ground it is possible that the gun fires one time.

- When you give a ped a headshot when he/she is in a car, there is a possibility that the head will activate the horn.

- When youre in a cop car, you can call for backup. If you are in a dangerous situation you can let the cops do the dirty work for you.

- No bulletproof vests will be in the game.

 

Don't know if it is all new info, guess not...but leave a comment if you like smile.gif

 

Scans:

Excellent, thanks for your effort!

 

The cops back up thing sounds awesome, I guess that hints to disguises?

 

Im also glad to hear theres even more driving realism too. Hopefully this doesnt cancel out the insane stunts though!

Now that's an interesting fact. Armour has been confirmed as part of the HUD, so what will the armour be if not bulletproof vests?

f*ck, all my effort for nothing, isn't that pic with niko with his shotgun new?

also, you forgot this>

-Every police car has a system in it where you can track down criminals.

You can do this by searching for his name or by entering the photo you made with your mobile phone of the criminal.

- If you need health you won't find a hart, but first aid packages

- Chases are more spectacular, thnx to crashes and 18-wheelers who lose their stuff.

- And yes, it is possible to drop handgrenates from your car during a chase....

The things you've listed are already mentioned in other topics, no need to put it down again.

And no...the shotgun pic was first seen last week or so.

I dont know.

The magazine literally says: There will be no bulletproof vests in the game due to the cover system.

Now, I dont know if bulletproof vests and armor are exactly the same things in english (cause english is not my mother language tounge.gif ) and I can't recall if some kind of armor has been confirmed for the game....

The fact that you can call in for back-up is a nice touch. Thats gonna make the game a lot easier for me. I'ma just ride around in a cop car through the whole game and play as a dirty cop. haha

it's not really new, cause it was in III but cool nonetheless:

 

if you throw molotovs into a group of people, they run away burning, setting fire to everyone they bump into..

and

copcars don't bump into you like kamikazes anymore.

Selected only the ones I found interesting and, by coincidence or not, are new. Very good! cookie.gif

I just read the four page hands-on in the March edition of the monthly magazine Power Unlimted #171.

 

I'm Dutch, fifteen years old and I can't write English perfectly. So I hope you can read these information details below:

 

- GTA IV gives you the feeling that you're playing a GTA game and not a Saints Row or something else.

- You have to get used to the way Niko walks and runs.

- Driving a car will become much more difficult. It's hard to drift through curves, for example.

- The shootouts are improved in many ways. It looks much more like in a movie. And when you lock-on to someone, it does not stand still. You can move it a little with your left stick so you can make a headshot or somewhere else.

- The lightings when bombs explode are impressive. Besides, people who are on fire can put other people on fire.

- When you're driving you can smash the window by pressing the bumper on the right side of the Xbox 360 controller. You will hang out the window and you can fire at your enemies. There is here no lock-on system, so you have to aim very carefully.

- Police won't stab into you like kamikaze pilots. It's also fun to drop grenades at your chasers.

- The more wanted-stars you get, the bigger becomes the search on your radar. Luckily, you can check your map if there are any police near you.

- GTA has made a natural evolution since GTA III.

- You can travel by tube (without seeing a loading screen).

- If you hold a taxi cab and put your destination point on your map, Niko will tell the driver where to go and he will bring you there.

- Mobile phones are very important. If you need weapons, you can call Little Jacob for a deal on a safe location. He will come up there with his car and the gear. If you need a police vehicle, a fire truck or an ambulance, you just have to call 911.

- Friendships make the game a lot easier for you. Little Jacob can give you rebate on his weapons and Roman can offer you free taxi rides.

- Jack Thompson is not in the criminal list in the police computer.

- First-aid packages replace hearts and there are no body armors anymore.

- When you walk up to someone who is wearing something (bag, cup, etc) he will drop it.

No, it's not.. but neither is being able to take 20+ bullets. As long as Niko takes realistic damage and goes down fast if proper tactics aren't used I'm happy. The new cover system will prove very benefitial to tough firefights and would make up for the added challenge. I would welcome bullet proof vests but tbh they are not really needed.

But we're told there would be (half of the radar is circled by the health and the other half can circled by armour on the HUD).
