The map seems bigger than LCS and GTA III...

The map on GTA IV seems bigger for some reason. Here's an example, in GTA 3 and LCS, there was no Statue Of Liberty on those 2 games, but on GTA IV, there was the Statue Of Liberty. Who else realized this?

Thanks Captain Obvious, we wouldn't realize otherwise.

 

No offence though, but it's totally different city, with only the name and location being common factor. There are different backstories, characters and boroughs. R* clearly stated that they remade Liberty City, because they felt they never gave it justice in its previous iteration, due to many factors including hardware power.

Personally, I did notice the similarity between the two Liberty Cities, especially when getting to Algonquin for the first time. I had that 'I've been here before' - feeling.

 

It is, in essence, the same city, just refined and expanded.

I'd call GTA V's Los Santos a refinement and expansion of Los Santos from San Andres since it was already pretty close to LA, but Liberty City in GTA III only vaguely resembled NYC (Hence the lack of a Statue of Liberty parody amongst other things). It was really just a bunch of East coast cities mixed together.

 

As Tycek said R* didnt feel like they gave Liberty City justice which is one of the reasons they revisited it again in GTA IV and it closely resembles NYC/New Jersey much more than the 3D era counterpart.

 

With regards to physical size IMO GTA IV's map is Goldie Locks being that it's not too small lacking detail or too big to the point of being uninteresting and dull. It's just right.

This is a meme phrase I know but IV is truly a boots on the ground experience. All the detail is in the density of the city, the back alleys, rooftops, side streets, and it's the best way to make an immersing city.

It's because Rockstar made a HD Universe and a 3D Universe. Yes, there are most things the same on both universes and even if Rockstar stated this i do not believe it, but whatever.
