Not, it's a different IP and it will no doubt a different feel

In fairness though, so was Read Dead Redepmtion. Heck in was in an entirely different setting and timeline, yet still managed to feel like a GTA game.

This is in no way a bad thing though as it was a major improvement over GTA in terms of shooting mechanics, graphics and overall story presentation.

GTA IV wasn't a bad game, but RDR was definitely one of my favourite games of last year.

for me RDR>>>GTAIV

i just had more fun in it

will prob pick up LA Noire way down the road. doesn't seem like the type of game for me but i know it'll be good since it's R*

rabidpancakeburglar2756d ago

I didn't think that RDR felt like gta

@ rabidpancakeburglar

Just me then? ;)

Same graphics engine, same physics engine, same open world gameplay, same mission structure, same A to B gameplay, same same same same same...

Granted my use of the word same is used lightly as technically they were all essentially updated and improved upon (especially the shooting mechanics).

Don't get me wrong there's no denying that it's a much MUCH better game than GTA IV, but it's still GTA in the Wild West.

Sorry if this doesn't make much sense but IMO, RDR feels more like GTA than Saints Row does.


I couldn't care less whether or not L.A. Noire feels like GTA or not. As long as it's a good game that can stand on it's on merits then I'll buy it.

Phew! :)

it's called GTH(orses) for a reason!

LA Noir however, from what we've seen, is no where near GTA at all. it's definitely a different approach

it's also being developed by a different team...

BiggCMan2756d ago

Yea but you could say the same with IW and Treyarch with Call of Duty. Different teams, same exact game. I don't think L.A Noire will be like GTA though, but this is only based off trailers, I haven't seen a whole lot of gameplay as I want to be surprised. I saw a small amount of gunplay footage, it looked good. I'm looking forward to this game, I hope i'm not let down by another GTA clone.

Focker4202756d ago

No, but that doesn't mean its a bad thing.

ct032756d ago

It better feel like L.A. Confidential meets Chinatown. GTA's style doesn't work for this at all.

solidworm2756d ago

Hope not,the last GTA sucked balls.

omi25p2756d ago

I hope it plays a little like GTA IV, i mean the shooting, cover system, driving ect. But i also hope the fact your a detective adds something much better. Like red dead redemption, It had the same merchanics as GTA IV but played differently.

VampiricDragon_2756d ago

no its linear. Gta is not
you can skip things in la noire, in gta you can not.
