GTA 4 With iCEnhancer 3.0 Looks So Much Better Than GTA 5

One Angry Gamer "Anyone can say what they want about Grand Theft Auto V, the 2013 release for the geriatric twins, but it just does not hold any kind of visual candle to Rockstar’s 2007 outing of GTA IV. Why? Because Grand Theft Auto V doesn’t have the iCEnhancer (not yet anyway). And Ice Laglace’s iCEnhancer 3.0 has just dropped, showcasing some jaw-dropping visual upgrades for the PC version of GTA IV." (Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto V, PC)

@Trywizardo. Nice try way to just make up stuff

1. Gtaiv with ice mod is a graphical delight and what makes it so great is that you can combine it with many mods plus real cars so having the hulk or spiderman wreck a mustang or camero or bmw550gt is really nice.

Gtaiv ice mod is great but i already know that gtav pc will be equal to it or pass it.

How do i know this? Because rockstar put in a lot of work fixing the Rage engine. Same engine that powered max payne 3 with high texture pack that really looked awesome so google it if you forgot

But then again icenhancer on gtav will take us to another level of graphics for such a large game.

Thank you to all the modders for making a horrible pc port (gtaiv) into something i still play today and thats what gaming and pc gaming is all about

lets compare GTA4 and GTA5 when both are on PC and both modded, shall we?

i dunno... there some things that look better, but dunno why there other things that are too much glass-like which result in a graphical improvements BUT look very unrealistic. IMHO

kinda like the Skyrim mods how every female avatar looks like a plastic doll with a crap ton of lip injections. haha
yezz  +   304d ago
Agreed. Most of the time these mods look very unbalanced because the "base" is so old. GTA V has low textures and some reflections aren't that great but everything just blends together quite nicely.

Even though I don't really care using them myself I'm interested to see what modders can do with GTAV..

Those high poly cars in a low poly environment will never appeal to me.. no matter how pretty you make the lighting and rendering.

*1 year later* GTAV mods look stunning *amazing *fantastic *next generation spin it all you want no one gives 2 poops. polishing a turd until GTAV comes out on PC.

As gorgeous as it is, I'd still much rather play GTA V. Props to the whole team though. This looks phenomenal.

Hopefully GTAV ends up being a better port then 4, excited to see what the modders come up with.
Bodge  +   304d ago
Hopefully they surprise everyone and make an incredible port. Also there's a DEV testing GTA V on STEAM right now. He's been doing it for a few hours now, maybe he's getting the PC trailer ready? :O

It should be considering they've been using the Rage engine (name of the engine, not the game) for a while now, and it's coming to the PS4 and XBO.
weirdo  +   304d ago
nope. gtav looks the best imo
T1125P  +   304d ago
Just imagine iCEnhancer for GTA V ...will be just stunning. This is why I love the PC, we get to see how far the modders will push the limits of the graphics, and get the best possible playing experience.
XiRockLee  +   304d ago
No you're wrong mario , have you played uncharted , or lets say mario kart ? stunning visuals.
KwietStorm  +   304d ago
You really just compared Mario Kart to a fully modded PC game, and GTA with ice at that.
XiSasukeUchiha  +   304d ago
Yo Mario not to *stomp* on your parade or nothing but PC modder could easily make GTA V visual mod that surpass GTA IV's Mods and look at the Uncharted 4 demo!
XiRockLee  +   304d ago
You know ,sasuke is right !
TheOnlyMastrx  +   304d ago
This is the kind of stuff that makes me want a good gaming PC. Looks great!
ABizzel1  +   304d ago
This is why I have a good gaming PC. Oh and AV recording, plus dabbling with other programs, but modding a game to the max your GPU can handle is like nothing else.

Also price and freedom to do what you want

All the pretty FX in the world can't make GTA IV's single player experience better than GTA V.

lol @ all these saying GTA V looks better.. git out..... GTA IV has Anti Aliasing, an insane amount of draw distance and higher resolutions, higher than the consoles running it in sub-HD.

just look for yourself, here have an eyegasm...:

GTA V's draw distance in last gen looks better than GTA IV on PC.
tachy0n  +   304d ago
sure, with those microscopic amounts of VRAM...... /S

Not even close. I have GTA5 on 360 and GTA4 on PC. Even without any mods PC GTA4 is easier on the eyes.
S11m  +   304d ago
I'm sure that GTA V draw distance on PC and new consoles has better than GTA IV.
The old consoles not be able to more.
Rock-Lee  +   304d ago
LOL. Sure the textures and lighting look great, but everuthing else just sucks. Did you even notice pedestrians popping in the screen? GTA IV had a lot of texture popping, this mod now has FULL PEDESTRIANS popping in your screen. So bad.

Look at 0:57. Also a the daytime video of ICE has a LOT of shadows popping in. Really ruins the experience.
tachy0n  +   304d ago
never go full retard, ever.

the guy who made the video has the game all maxed out but has the draw distance set to 0 and pedestrian/car density set to 0 in most of the video,imagine making that video with taxis and stuff getting in the way....

Obviously GTA IV modded looks better than GTA V on LAST GEN consoles. Definitely will look better than GTA V on current gen whenever it releases. That's what high end PC's are for
S11m  +   304d ago
IC3 has so much bloom.
PersonMan  +   304d ago
I much prefer the lighting in GTA V. It truly is stunning.
Razputin  +   304d ago
I modded the shit out of my game and it looks better, but no where near to that.

Whats up with this? Anyone know what mods would be best to get this quality of level?
