You Won't Believe How Mind-Blowing GTA IV Looks With Custom HD Texture Packs & Mods

DSOGaming writes: "GTA V is almost upon us and while the PC version – alongside the Xbox One and the PS4 versions – will feature better visuals than its original version, it’s still unclear whether GTA V vanilla will be able to beat GTA IV modded. And today, we bring you some new images from GTAForums members that will leave you speechless."

Looks great. I want to see this on GTA V. IV was so terrible, all the polygons in the universe couldn't save it.

I really enjoyed GTA IV, I completed it twice :O

BattleReach1186d ago (Edited 1186d ago )

Me too.

Great story, fun shooting and driving, realistic graphics at the time (except for the animations and NPC models).

AliTheSnake11186d ago (Edited 1186d ago )

The game didn't come out yet (on PC).
Brace yourselves. Remember how many annoying articles about GTA 4 and skyrim's texture packs and skin mods we've been getting ? well, they're coming back, big time.
The funny thing is that every time one of these article pops up, which still happens every week. The title is usually very similar to this.

"You won't believe how many articles on GTAIV mods dsogaming has posted since they have nothing else to talk about."

I found the animations in IV to be fantastic, thanks to NaturalMotion's Euphoria engine. I think IV was one of the first games to actually use it.

As for the mod, the texture quality and water shaders are fantastic, but it's lack of proper lighting and shadows makes it very flat looking.

Ballad of Gay tony was worlds better than nico's story.

Alex_Boro1186d ago

I loved GTA V but IV was okay. Missions were annoying and repetitive in IV.

Dang 6 years later and we're still going on with this game? Yes it's a much prettier same game.

All the mods in the world couldnt make GTA IV good.

Psychotica1186d ago

Doesn't need them, it was a great anyways..

@ Back-to-Back

Mods are not what make a game great. A good game is a good game no matter what. Garry's Mod is great. But Half Life 2 is not great because of Garry's Mod. Far Cry 2 had a far more expansive creation kit and didn't have nearly the success. Why? Because Far Cry 2 wasn't as good as Half Life 2. It’s like saying Star Wars is the greatest series ever because George Lucas keeps putting out new and "improved" editions.

Yet it's still ridiculously hard to get over 30fps with this game. Rockstar really did a disservice to the pc community.

AKS1185d ago

This isn't the first time a Rockstar PC game has had some problems.

Max Payne 3 was fine, but most of the GTA games are disproportionately demanding. I had a lot of bizarre resolution problems with some of the older GTA games as well. It seems like there isn't much effort put into optimizing the PC versions of many of their games.

Talk about photorealistic.
