The GTA4 objectively unbias game review from someone who care about gaming


Recommended Posts

For now I've decided that I'd rather be playing the game than writing a review, but I'll talk about what I can.

 

On foot

 

Walking and running ad sprinting. Those are the three modes you have. Without hitting any buttons and just moving the control stick, it's walking, and it's mindnumbingly slow. It's nice in the sense that you can realistically blend in with normal people becausse you're just as slow as them, but I'd still prefer how previous games were set up. Holding A lets you run, and tapping A is sprinting. Now, there's another cosmetic problem with the walking/running. Whenever you change direction Niko does this wierd lean to the side you're turning. I mean it looks more like he is walking on an angle, and it's creepy looking.

 

I haven't sene much combat being only two and a half hours in, and not going around just killing people, but when I was in combat, it seemed very sluggish. When I'd punch or shoot it seemed like there was a lot more time in between each punch and shot of the gun. I don't think that's a problem, the other games everything seemed unrealistically fast. I'll have to get into more combat for a better opinion, but Niko's sluggishness may be due to another issue I wanted to bring up.

 

Niko is fat. He isn't like, extremely obese or anything, but it looks like he has a bit of a belly. Or a lot of a belly really. Maybe it's just his clothes, because GTA games never really could make jacket look not fat.

 

Driving

 

Driving is different now, it's more realistic than previous games and the cars don't handle as easily. A nice feature I noticed was when I got into an old beat up car, Niko has trouble starting it, and when it is going down the road it will let out some smoke from the tailpipe and make a stereotypical car backfiring sound.

 

Misc.

 

Dating seems to be revamped, and I went on one date that I think was through the story, but I'm not sure. As they said they wanted to blur the lines between story missions and side missions, and they actually did a pretty good job of that, because side mission type things will actually call you on your cell phone, and seem to have an idea of the story and don't seem out of place.

 

I went on the internet for a little bit, but I didn't see much, I think I'll have to wait until I find out stuff online like secrets or something (read: porn), but I think it's a cool novelty that I might come back and visit later, like watching T.V.

 

Hookers a a little different. I only tried so I could give a better review though, and in no way rely on this gameplay feature to get me off. So, the hookers actually move in your car now, and you can choose between three priced jobs, $20, $50, and $70. My character was a chep bum, so got the $20 special, which turned out to be a clothed HJ. So, all you see is a hooker's hand going up and down over Niko's pants. I don't even want to think how crazy it will get at the higher prices.

 

I'm going to go play the game some more, I'll post more later today.

One billion b-balls dribbling simultaneously throughout the galaxy. One trillion b-balls being slam dunked through a hoop throughout the galaxy. I can feel every single b-ball that has ever existed at my fingertips. I can feel their collective knowledge channeling through my viens. Every jumpshot, every rebound and three-pointer, every layup, dunk, and free throw. I am there.

Yes, that matters if you're gay.

 

Which you're not.

It has made me the man I am today. A man who craves furry hentai.

I think I've expressed my feelings on playing a non-handsome character and how difficult it is for me to do that.

 

 

The story is good so far. It's also nice that you don't get sucked into some sort of crime world right off the boat like most of the other GTA games, and it's paced pretty nice to where the first few missions you don't really have an idea of where the story is going or anything, and there isn't really a heavy story at first so it's easier to get used to the enviroment.

Oh, and strip clubs work pretty similarly to San Andreas, only this time the strippers talk to you while you're getting a private dance, so it's easier to

 

nevermind.

Pfft. Average Joe Johnson trumps Pretty Boy Floyd everytime! At least, that's what I tell myself. Every single day.

Yeah I got it last night at around 12:30 but I've only played a collective like hour. Niko definitely is a fat sob like his cousin. I was trying on clothes and I was like what the hell is this crap and hes got this giant gut. I do like the game its just going to take a while to get used to the controls and definitely driving has gotten ramped up in difficulty. I played online and combat is fine. Auto-aim is a tad difficult...which is another word for kind of broken. We had friendly fire on and I'd try to switch to another target and I'm just sitting there jamming the stick to either side to change target while a cop is shotgunning me in the side of my skull. Then I got some grenades and murdered them. Melee combat is kind of horrible. I tried to knife some chick and it wouldn't let me lock on. Also you should be able to run faster than frightened pedestrians.

 

Can't really give this a review yet since I've played multiplayer within the first 45 minutes of having the game knowing nothing about controls and what not. But so far I'd definitely say once controls are mastered its going to be really good and I know the story is going to be awesome.

There was a time when I questioned the ability for the schizoid to ever experience genuine happiness, at the very least for a prolonged segment of time. I am no closer to finding the answer, however, it has become apparent that contentment is certainly a realizable goal. I find these results to be adequate, if not pleasing. Unfortunately, connection is another subject entirely. When one has sufficiently examined the mind and their emotional constructs, connection can be easily imitated. More data must be gleaned and further collated before a sufficient judgment can be reached.

No matter how frighten or how fast they run, they can't outrun a bullet.

They said the fitness stuff from last game wasn't going to be a part of this game, so I don't have any hopes for my big gutted slow moving character getting any less gutted and slow moving. And yeah driving is so much harder, and driving a motorcycle is completely ridiculous.
