GTA V vs San Andreas - Comparsion

Recommended Posts

Freezer89

 

These are very nice comparison pictures! You can really see the progress Rockstar has made since 2004. May I make a suggestion? I think we could have an even more "accurate" comparison if we compared these pics to similar ones using the "IV: SA" mod. Is that possible?

 

The mods here made SA with current generation graphics, so we could see how their work stacks up with Rockstar's work.

Good Idea! The problem is just, that i currently haven't installed GTA IV.. and it won't run very smoothly on my low-end pc.

But after you mentioned that.. maybe i will give it a try. Maybe.

Yeah, i did it.. but it runs really low on my PC.. and with medium settings/details. Anyway here are four different shots:

Love looking at these pics, an insight into how gaming is fast evolving, San Andreas pushed the technical barrier of the PS2 to the limit and we are still in relatively early days of today's generation of consoles. It's interesting how the SA graphics looks poor now in comparison but in a few years time we'll most definitely be saying the same about GTA V.

I actually think SA still looks pretty good. GTAV is an obvious improvement, but other than the pointy textures and lack of shadows, the ol' SA don't so bad.

This is one of the best threads on this forum. It shows what a HUGE improvement the current visuals have made. I don't see much more they can improve on graphics wise. I don't understand all of the bashing some have given Rockstar, some of these shots are a work of art.

Those pictures are irrelevant because of mods, at least to me.

Ways to compare it:

 

GTA V & IVSA² - Same engine.

IVSA² & SA - Same models.

 

I must say the difference between V and IVSA is a lot bigger then IVSA and SA, unfortunately, but expected.

I mean it's good to see it evolve:

 

We have SA on Renderware (2004)

IVSA (RAGE , 2008)

and V (RAGE, 2011)
