Which 3D GTA title feels low budget ?

Recommended Posts

Mr_Long

Now I'm not saying which game is the most limited, but things that say the game is low budget. Overall I'd say Gta LCS feels pretty low budget, cause I mean it uses the same engine as Vice city. Everything feels like Vice City except the running/walking(borrowed from San Andreas). The game also lacks a lot of interiors. The graphics also look worse than Gta San Andreas. Lots of cutscenes aren't even motion-captured and use in-game animations. 

 

But the game definitely suffers quite a bit. 3 years ago when I first heard of the game I thought it was Liberty City with Gta San Andreas features, but after I watched a walkthrough I became disappointed that it was just a slightly improved GTA 3. Rockstar should've put San Andreas features in GTA LCS, then it would be worth playing.

LCS, no contest. Although I like this game but it really feels very low budget. Lack of interiors, the buildings and like you said some of the cutscenes aren't even motion captured, they just use simple in-game animations. Overall, one can feel the low-budget while playing it.

LCS.


As good as it was and despite it being my favorite of the III era, I'm willing to bet it had the lowest budget of all the III era games.

I have to say that LCS and VCS are probably the closest to 'low-budget' we're gonna get. Loved both titles, though.

 

Not easy to say which one was more 'low-budget' than the other, although I'm sure LCS had more glitchiness due to the devs being less experienced with handheld stuff, I guess.

LCS had a low-budget soundtrack as well, compared to VC and SA.

LCS. If you ever played Vice City, you should easily notice that LCS feels like a TC mod for Vice City. Same engine, same gameplay mechanics and sh*t (with some changes here and there, ofc). If you count Advance as the part of the 3D universe canon, then LCS doesn't have to be considered the most low-budget feeling 3D era game.

Seems like this thread should've just been which feels more more low budget between LCS and VCS, but I'm not going to jump on that bandwagon since both of the games were developed for a hand held device so of course things like the game engine, mechanics etc had to be compromised.

 

I'm go out of field to say San Andreas (I can hear the tears flowing already). Compared to GTA III and Vice City it doesn't feel like a big budget AAA title. Weapons sounds are complete garbage, character models can look hideous, the graphics were one of the things that left a bad taste in my mouth the first time I played it and I remember vividly saying to myself "this looks worse than Vice City". 

 

The 360/PS3 "remaster" only makes things worse since it's a sh*tty IOS/Android port. No. I'd would rather play LCS and VCS thanks.

I'd say LCS as well. The game's Color Pallette and sound effects is a copy/paste from SA. the map is a Copy/paste from III. The overall game is a copy/paste from VC. what sets VCS apart is the soundtrack and Phil Collins.

I'm pretty sure LCS and VCS were only made to keep fans occupied while that were waiting for GTA 4, It isn't so much a bad thing because they were both great games, but that was probably why they feel low budget.

Yeah, LCS. On the plus side, it has the series' most unique mini-game, SlashTV.

My favourite radio station for Liberty City Stories is Rise FM. A good mixture of house and dance music. 

 

But LCS looks more low budget than most of the primary GTA games, excluding the 2D era games. The lack of interiors besides safe houses and gun shops, lower quality graphics and less market exposure.

Well, I'm not a fan of those genres. So, I always skipped that station.

VCS, when you do the "empire building" the business buildings look so fake and cheap and out of place all over the map. It was so silly and low quality it took me out of the game, didn't feel like GTA.

 

Overall I didn't mind the lower quality graphics in LCS and VCS though because they were designed for PSP and really didn't look bad playing on that small screen. They look awful on a TV screen but they weren't originally designed for that so I don't really fault them there. Other low quality aspects of the games are what spoiled them.

GTA Advance,since it wasn't even made by Rockstar,it was made by Digital Eclipse;for me it's just a GTA that shouldn't exist;lt WAS RELEASED THE SAME DAY AS SAN ANDREAS and it was the only GTA of the 3D universe you can't travel on water(no boats),also the only GTA which story wasn't writen by Dan Houser
