GTA IV First Impressions April 29, 2008

Posted by Matthew in GTA.

Since I’ve managed to tear myself away to watch Manchester United v Barcelona, I thought I’d post my thoughts on the game so far.

  • The graphics are a lot better and character models a lot more detailed than the trailers showed;
  • Car physics are brilliant, each one handles differently to the next;
  • The Euphoria engine is a complete joy to watch in action, especially if you crash on a motorbike;
  • Targeting, while still a bit iffy, is better than previous games;
  • Classic GTA humour is better than ever, particularly the advertising boards and radio commercials;
  • Sheer sense of scale is astonishing;
  • Far too bloody dark in places!

I’ve yet to try out the multiplayer, will hopefully get some of that done tomorrow.
