-"Over 1,000 car customization options" (Bulletproof tires, armor, etc.)

- Car will turn up in an impound if left in the street. Must pay a fine to retrieve it.

- You can't directly "weaponize" your car, but there are a lot of little options. (Car leaking petrol and light em up, sticky bombs)

- Guns will be with you throughout the whole game.

- Customized guns will broaden range of options during missions. (Stealthy vs. loud, Scope, etc.)

- Moved from static fights to free focus. Quickly switch your focus to other enemies. No longer need to lock on to enemies, although you can lock on if you wish.

- "Hits are much more satisfying"

- Each character has different animation. Strength stat has a bearing on each mele/capability

- Expect really cool destruction/carnage/damage

-Combat AI much more advance with more knowledge of environment.

- Enemies will behave different by who they are (SWAT is organized, gang members are more "gung ho"

-You can Add turbos to cars

-Horns can be customized

-- 3 protag will feel natural and will not feel like a balancing act, allowing the game to feel more natural. (ex, if Franklin and Michael are in a car, you can drive as Michael, switch to Franklin, and Michael will continue driving)

Yeah but will the cars handle better and Will my car do a back flip when I run over a crash can?
LOVE GTA but not a fan of there last title.

You must have been pretty terrible if you back flipped by hitting a can.

GTA IV has a great driving mechanic. But it requires skill top master.
SirKilla  +   872d ago
I guess i'm not as good as you.
neverless: I enjoyed the other GTA titles and do not like the driving mechanic that would allow a car to back flip when I run over a trash can.

Yes! I lack control! Yes! I like the other titles when the conrtol was more like a fun video game and not a lame flight simulator.

2 people feel the same as I do.
Maybe they like cars that handle more like video games too.

maybe they should put in a gas guage and make you run out of gas.. Or rush hour traffic.... take you 20 minutes to go one block. how real would that be! whoo who. omi25p i gave you a bubble... Thanks for reply...

I didn't read any of it. but i don't understand why people do. don't people rather find these things on their own while playing the game? I'm a huge gta fan I've been buying them since the first one in 1998. when gta4 was announced, i didn't read no preview, didn't watch no gameplay video, the first time that i saw what it looked liked and the first time i saw a gameplay video was me playing it. it was worth the wait.

Why post an article from some under heard of website, rather than posting a link to the people who actually did the interview (CVG) and recorded it in video form.


But its the official source. Also they summarize it in the article on their website

*** Whatever guns you pick will be with you throughout the game **** no no

I liked how in GTA if you died you had to get your guns back, it was sort of motivation to not die during a mission. I mean obviously they are going to take your guns off you at the police station

I don't mind if you kept them but you had to get them from your safe house but keeping them even when you die...come on

*** There are a lot of possibilities due to the ability to control three protagonists. You will need to switch to a certain character to save another from trouble. ***

I hope this dosen't get annoying, I'd rather stick to one character and I know for a fine fact everyone else is going to be the same. You'll find a character you like more and you'll stick with him, when the game forces you to change you'll not want to because of you growing closer to your chosen character. This is the problem I think with having three characters.

I know for a fact I'll be sticking with Trevor.

You always kept your guns when you died. The only time they took them was if you were arrested
Mr_Nuts  +   873d ago

If you died they would take your weapons.

In GTA San Andreas however, if you date Katie Zhan (who is a nurse) you are able to keep your weapons upon getting wasted.

I think GTA4 was the only one where you could keep them and I never really liked that to be honest.
omi25p  +   873d ago
Yes but then you spend most of you're time going to a gun store.

If you get arrested you lost them if you died you kept them.

Also if you buy you're weapons legally through a gun store why would you lose them if you got put in hospital?

Terrible. You're telling me that we are keeping all of the guns we've earned throughout the game? Thats so stupid. It should obviously be like previous GTA's where we lose everything, and then either buy it back, or kill people to gain weapons.

Nah just kidding , it sucked ass. I'm glad we'll be keeping all of our weapons. Now I wont have to use cheat codes to get them all back. Or have to go through stupid idiotic processes(buying them, killing gang members, etc) just to get back my guns. Thank you Rockstar for not pandering to idiots.
