GTA IV Modded & Rendered At 2K Will Blow You Away, Looks Just As Good As Next-Gen Titles

DSOGaming writes: "What? You still don’t believe that SweetFX can significantly improve a game’s visuals? If so, go ahead and take a look at the following GTA IV screens that were rendered at 2K. And while vanilla GTA IV may look awful for today’s standards, GTA IV modded is easily one of the most impressive titles, rivaling even upcoming next-gen titles." (Grand Theft Auto IV, PC)

as impressive as this may look I can say I got GTA4 with all the mods like the ice mod or whatever that apparently makes it look amazing when all was said and done I launched the game and I wasn't impressed at all in motion it looks like crap still in pictures it looks good.

It may look great but it's not like it's a new game it's just a prettier game.

Thank you, you took the words out of my mouth. This is why they NEVER show a real video of people screwing around in these graphical mods. Stand still photos look good but than once in motion is breaks apart and looks like trash.

Not really. Anyone is free to look at tons of Youtube videos featuring the game + mods and it still looks great.

With Ice Enchancer, HD textures, and a car mod package, it could easily be passed off as a next gen game and people would drool all over it. The only thing that is bad are pedestrians.

I missed GTA V. Can't wait for it to come to the Xbox One.

Now I wanna see SweetFX on my Borderlands and Skyrim. I love modding up GTA IV. Right now I have batmobiles roaming the street and I am Superman. Its pretty sweet to see ol Supes in a blue batmobile.

sweetfx is really limited in many ways over a good enb, enb presets use sweetfx at the same time sometimes.

this is aiming towards skyrim BTW :D

SweetFX has always been available on Borderlands works with most DX9 games...

A good looking PS3 game in 1080p looks like next-gen which is quite disappointing tbh.

"just As Good As Next-Gen Titles" well obviously all next gen means is better graphics

"Looks" just as good as next-gen titles. You conveniently left that first word out of your post.

I don't know it doesn't look all that impressive to me.
Look at the ground textures, look at the character models, look at the vegetation. Looks pretty standard even on consoles. It's nothing spectacular.

GTA IV also came out in 2008. Not too many games that I know of age this well.

its a limit of the engine in general. the engine is not optimized for 4k-8k textures to not have it crash or run to a crawl.
the game was never made to be run at that high res and with all the higher res textures and such.

a game like skyrim can handle 8k textures and it will look great with a good enb and such (if you have the processing power to pull it).
there is games out now that looks just as good or better than many up coming games.
PC modding will always be better than whatever the devs make.

on a side note, the grass and green in general looks like to be vanilla and not new modded textures.

It looks average. I think the contrast is way too high. I hope next gen isn't just high contrast like this.
