Things in GTA IV that don't get appreciated enough

Recommended Posts

Osho

The serious approach made the narrative feel more immersive, it was the first thing to strike me the most in a good way and was consistently maintained throughout the campaign. It was largely a scripted affair and turned me off for its linearity, with minimal polish, but it still manages you to immerse very well, and the story still stands out, worth playing alone for that who simply enjoy a great story in a GTA game, and to see how the series made a big shift.

Algonquin.

Best Borough IMO, and I think I may be the only person who frequents the GTA IV section to say that.

Of all of NLC's Boroughs, I like Dukes the most. It's the most similar to Westdyke, and Leftwood.

But Algonquin is literally the center of everything. You've got all the iconic sh*t down there, varied neighbourhoods, skyscrapers, it's amazing.

I prefer the 'Suburban' Areas the most. Patrolling is easier there. :)

I love to patrol (vigilante missions) through Bohan. Police Cruiser or FIB Buffalo, sunglasses from the russian store, grey jacket from Perseus, stonewashed jeans and brown slippers from Modo. Aaand my good ol` reliable combat pistol.

Clothes. There are some really cool outfits you can create, my favorite being the Modo brown leather jacket with Modo jeans (they look kinda stone-washed) and black moccasins.

...it has to be the cover system. I've heard everything from saying it's broken, clunky, unresponsive etc and whilst there's no denying it sometimes has a mind of its own such as placing Niko in positions you don't want him to I don't feel it's this monstrosity people make it seem.

From my experience it does its job more often than it doesn't. IMO it was a great addition to the series considering how much it changed gunplay, but it seems to get judged too harshly on its technical performance compared to newer games without much consideration for the fact it was the first time the series had an actual cover system implemented.

Well then, try to explain these.

 

1. I tried taking cover on a barricade near a doorway, Niko just slid past the barricade plonked me into the doorway, where I was very exposed and very dead.

2. I took cover on a pillar near a dock, couldn't blind fire. Went to the complete edge, still couldn't blind fire.

3. Took cover on a car, car was knocked out of my way, and Niko took cover on nothing.

4. I tried to take cover on some boxes and the game pinged me into the wall behind me.

 

Meanwhile in V I can't crouch, the controls are often clunky and laggy when I hop out of my car and have some place to be. That annoys me the most. Also not being able to climb up a hill or onto objects sometimes which results in a very poorly animated impact and fall.

 

Also:

1) It's clunky at times and everybody knows it, you've got to pay a little more attention. 3) Glitches happen. 4) Same as #1.

 

Neither of their cover systems are that great. V is better in some ways but also worse in others.

Lol you're actually defending the cover system? It's total crap. There's no getting around the fact. A simple comparison to V's system shows how sh*tty IV's cover system is.

 

F*cking obviously. Everyone would bash on V if it didn't improve upon IV's cover system. Doesn't mean IV's total crap. Cover in V would f*cking suck ass if IV ain't got any cover system whatsoever.

 

It's like V's first person mode, clunky and slow as f*ck being R*'s first venture into it. IV is the first game to include cover.

 

TL;DR: The f*ck is with the ignorant bashing on IV cover system?

In topic of the first page. I never found IV's cover system to be a pain in the ass, not once. I actually quite liked Niko's transitions into them, like the drive roll, and the knee slide. I wished V had different ways to take cover for the 3 protags. Like franklins should have different animations than Michael stuff like that.

I agree with shooting though, I really liked the shooting in IV. The guns had recoil, and they were loud and just looked nice. guns felt like they had impact. Shoot a guy with a deagle in IV and compare it to V. One feels a lot more dangerous than the other. (V doesn't compare)

Ahhhhh the knee slides. They had slick covering animations back in the 'ol days. They don't make 'em like they use to 'lil Jimmy.

What about PLR, they bashed Liberals pretty much with this station. They didn´t bash them on the ingame TV though.
