GTA IV TOTALLY DISSAPOINTED - ONE


tomasse

Recommended Posts

OK,firstly i'd like to say that this is my personal opinion for the game,that was burning my chest and i had to spit out these things that totally dissapointed me with GTA IV,and not to start quarreling with anyone (After all,thats what Forums are for...

discussing for good or bad things,likes or dislikes on a topic).

 

Maybe i was expecting too much from rockstar and finally i got even less than SAN ANDREAS offered me (OH,yeah! i trully mean that!!!).

 

OK,the GRAPHICS and the STORY are new and better than any other GTA game,but weren't they SUPPOSED TO BE like that,after all its the PS3 we're talking here.It would certainly have better graphics and of course a new story (what would they do?stick to an old one?).

So BEYOND this,everything else Dissapointed me.

 

1. Where are the :

- Tanks?

- Fighting Airplanes?

- Different Helicopters? (Anihilator..sh*t!Where's Apache)

- Civilian Airplanes?

- Hovercrafts?

- Bicycles?

- Parachute & Jetpack?

- And tons of other vehicles i dont remember right now.

 

2. Why didnt they put more guns? (All the same & the same!) (e.g. Where's the KATANA sword?)

 

3. Where have all the Sub-Missions gone? (Finish the game and thats all...then what?)

- Tons of different clothing?

- San Andreas vehicle boosting? (Nitro, Soundsystems etc.)

- Different area types? (San Andreas -> Cities,Desetrs,Mountains,Forests)(GTA IV -> Cities,Cities,cities...oh and more Cities

- Even small details like,the character having the ability to dive into the water,going to the gym,or eating and having your

status being affected by it (doesnt say much,but says a lot about everything else missing in GTA IV,its the small details

that make the difference).

 

Beyond the graphics,story and general system engine fixes,that are different and should be different,as its the least the PS3 sytem can offer,the ONLY! trully new thing about GTA IV,i find,is the ONLINE game system AND ONLY.I was totally expecting from rockstar,that GTA IV had all the above San Andreas good stuff and a lot more to keep my interest for the game in the highest levels...but nope...nothing (Was that gonna make the game lose its "Maturity"...nope i dont think so).

 

4. My little story abou GTA IV:

- Bought the game (Was expecting "Divinity" itself!!!)

- Good first impressions (said to myself,i'd find more as advancing deeper in the game)

- BORED in the first 3 hours

- Dissapointed in the first day

- Tested CHEATS (oh yeah,after bored this is the next step)

- After a day exploring,didnt find anything to keep my interest up and high

- Totally dissapointed by game (End of story)

 

Finally, i hope that in a future GTA IV game upgrade,i'll lookup again this post and laugh at it.

This whole speech delirium,its due to the fact that i'm a freakin GTA FAN,godammit...and i want freakin MORE!!!

When the game designers have the ultimate power of creativity (playing GODS in the game world)...and watch them,hold back so much stuff they could do,it makes me godamn CRAZY!

 

(Out of Topic but Important)

I had a same disscusion,with a friend of mine,about how the hollywood studios,do exactly the same in their movies (hold back,in what they trully can do).

And after reading Hideo Kojimas interview,about how the Bluray disc (50GB!!!??!!) isnt enough for the MGS4 (what?) (Hire some better game designers,game engineeres and write down the game code in a more simple way for less game size...godammit!!!),and after that saying to cut out of the game a lot of stuff (This is what i say...I WANT EVERYTHING YOU ORIGINALLY INTENTED TO PUT IN THE GAME...CUT DOWN THE HORSEsh*t AND EXCUSSES...SIT YOUR ASS DOWN AND DO THE JOB AS A PRO..AND DELIVER ME AND THE ENTIRE WORLD WITH A GODAMN FREAKIN EPIC GAME!!!)

 

5. A few Games am a FAN of:

- GrandTheftAuto Series.

- MetalGear Series.

- FinalFantasy Series.

- Soulcalibur Series.

- AND More!!!!!!

 

When i see somethin i dont like in these games...i'm just going SUPER crazy! (as i always know that it coul be better).

Now i'm freakin ready to hear you all...SPIT IT OUT...you might be heard (who knows)...and make a difference.

 

P.S. I wont leave the game, i wont sell it on eBay, i wont die...but surelly i'll wait for a more promising Upgradable Content.

you're right about the game. But youll have to accept the fact the game went main stream.

Well, there's your first problem.

 

Secondly, buying into all the hype with no basis in reality and then running with assumptions and wild speculations about what the game will offer is priming yourself for disappointment. Had you listened and paid attention to every--no-- ANYTHING being said about the game leading up to release, you WOULD HAVE KNOWN the focus was being tightened from SA.

 

Want all that f*cking stupid crap?

 

GO F*CKING PLAY SAN ANDREAS.

Your complaing about everything that was in SA and wasn't in this, great. It's not SA it's a next-gen GTA, it's got plenty to do. I'm glad they got rid of most of the stuff from SA, I personally hated it. If you don't like it that much just don't play it, take it out of your console, put it back in the case, take a picture and list it on eBay I'm sure there's someone out their that really wants to play it and enjoy it.

so many things that's so much better then san andreas... and I'm also glad they left out sh*tty features like the gym, one thing that dissapointed me was that YOU really don't have anything to spend money on other then cab rides health cost and weapons... and all you do in this game is being greedy for more and more money when you won't have much of use for it, you get a overflow of money in the end. Maybe they did this cause they want to add it later on in the DLC, who knows... we maybe waiting for a big surprise with the DLC... or a dissapointment.

Why its not more sand in the sandbox in IV, ask Dublin... i take a speculative shot at they had problems getting it run as smoothly as it should...it got delayed and they did what they could...Maybe going with there RAGE engine was difficult, i dunno...

 

IMO they ended on the wrong side of the fence, just slightly over the edge, on the "realistic" side that have nothing to do with realism but anyway..Sa vc were fast paced arcade style games esally accesible with tons of gameplay content glitchy and buggy but still huge sellers coz the fun sandbox elements made player forgive alot shortcomings...

 

Making a game good is about balance, i believe they got it slightly wrong and should speeded it up abit.driving-onfoot into arcade land...nooot much but abit.

 

Then to play content..yea theres a Black hole compared to Sa, we knew it was gonna be less then Sa still its so many missing pieces in the pussle why its so empty.

 

lets blame time and tech problems for now and see what DLC or V is gonna give us.

 

still, good game though(for what it is)

9/10

You know, I love IV exactly because they got rid of unnescesary (Oh, my spelling) stuff from SA. IV feels perfectly polished. True example of art it is not when you can't add something, but when you can't take something out of it.

Hovercrafts? . . . Bicycles? . . . KATANA . . . San Andreas . . . Nitro . . . Soundsystems . . . San Andreas . . . gym . . . San Andreas

Go play San Andreas.

 

Remember GTA III? Compared to San Andreas, the game was practically featureless. But it was still the most influential game in probably the last 20 years (Doom comes to mind). The only part of your post I agree with is this:

 

 

its the small details

that make the difference

 

But you've missed your own point! GTA IV is packed with details, you're just not looking hard enough or looking for the wrong things. I don't know, but I do feel sorry for you. If you want San Andreas, return your copy of IV go play San Andreas.

Tanks?

Fighting Airplanes?

Different Helicopters? (Only Anihilator..sh*t!)

Civilian Airplanes?

Hovercrafts?

 

 

Are you serious? Hovercrafts? WOW this is not some scifi game, its a crime game. Civilian Airplanes, whats that have to do with anything, sure you can see private jets in the airport if you want to look at them in AWw. Considering the put more realistic speeds in the game in terms of vehicles and Helicopters. If you put true speed of a plane in the game you would be on the other side of the map within 10 seconds, so what is the freaking point. Also why do you need 100s of different types of helicopters, there is like 5 versions. Your post is a failure, sure some points are good but alot of the crap you did in SA very few did and only little kids who enjoy the cheesiness of the old GTAs would notice the smallest things nobody would notice

I think that GTA4 is the best game on the Xbox 360, but San Andreas is still easily the best game in the series,i like the state of San Andreas better than Liberty, like the charactes better in SA, like everything better about SA, except graphics. I don't care about multiplayer, and i don't like the new "mature and realistic" style that IV has, i prefer the crazy jetpack stealing, tank driving craziness of SA

Yeah, I can really agree with you, i really miss al the old features and stuff, I really don't get why this game gets 10s everywhere

You guys are just going to have to accept the fact that GTA is maturing. It's not a game for teenagers anymore. We adults don't care about jetpacks and hover crafts. We like the realistic gameplay and story-driven aspect of the game. It plays much more like a action adventure video game now, and much less like an arcade button masher.

Well said. This is why I find it kinda sad to go on-line and see kids under 15 asking "hot to get a ho in GTA IV?" dozingoff.gif

What have maturing anything about that casinos and car modding and other

optional gameplay features that is not there atm?

 

Dont mix the style and vibe in IV with gamefeatures...same features in IV would just be great. If Sa was a sim rpg, what do yu call all the dates in IV?

 

Whý is people against more interiors, more grown up mini games more cool content???

 

Im expecting a GTA release to sit in my console a long time and only cool diverse multiple gameplay sh*t will do that, now we have a camera to play with that dont capture photos of this next gen graphics...how f*cking hard was that too implement!! in Sa i can save gigs on my pc of jpeg and even the ps2 memory card did hold alot pics..so you have a camera but no use for it..f*ck this is so generally going backward as it could be. suicidal.gif

 

I hope for DLC to save this messy release.

Quality over quantity

um if ya say so. apart from a few minor details they didnt add that much quality. the games have always had quality little details they just added to them. quantity is important too. whats the point buying a new game that has less features of a previous game but has a graphics/physics buff?

You're wetting your pampers over the loss of ridiculous extra content like parachutes and jetpacks?

 

There would be no use for airplanes in an urban metropolis like LC.

No one parachutes off skyscrapers.

The jetpack was tied to the storyline of SA.

 

As many people who know what they're talking about have said time and time again, this is GTA IV, not GTA: SA 2.

 

If you want to spend three hours in a stupid freight train delivering nothing of importance, that's your prerogative. Don't be a whiner and drag the rest of us down with you.

2. Why didnt they put more guns? (All the same & the same!) (where's the KATANA sword?)

Yes, because a Immigrant who has just arrived in the worst place in America is going to start wielding a Katana and chopping people's heads off. sarcasm.gif

 

Sure, San Andreas added quite a few things, but they weren't that great, and they weren't polished, whereas GTA IV focuses on more polished content, so it actually looks and feels right.

Firstly, thats one side what a GAME is for...doing things you dont do in real life.

If i just wanted to drive a car,i would take my car and drive it as long i wanted.

 

And second who the f*ck drove you down to anything? (What are you?a 10 year old or something?)

I just said my opinion and asked for the others.

No..this is so silly sh*t that...snoop wanna tell you something:

 

 

It seems like you're good for making jokes about your jimmy

But here's a jimmy joke about your mama that you might not like

I heard she was the 'Frisco dyke

But f*ck your mama, I'm talkin about you and me

Toe to toe, Tim M-U-T

If you actually read his post you would see that he listed alot more stuff than jetpacks and planes.

 

I agree with him, they have taken so much out and not put enough new stuff in.

 

And to the guy who said that thing about 'true art', I guess GTA 4 isn't true art then as I would take out the relationship building, the new driving physics (yes they are more realistic but are less fun - crackdown had funner driving), you may aswell take the tonnes of stuff you can't even use (rollercoaster, minigolf course, more clothing shops etc.)
