12 images of GTA IV

Rockstar organized a press event to showcase GTA IV in England a few days ago, where they released a new bunch of screenshots. We weren't invited, but here are the images. No question, this game is gonna be all kinds of awesome.

I dunno, seems really underwhelming to me.

wow, i didnt think you could get this kind of graphical detail with a game like GTA. Looks good.

Seen them other day looks great got to consider scale of game also and going to take a hit graphically.

GTA always been gameplay and im sure its going to be a hit in this department bring on E3 hopefully get some gameplay videos. :)

i hope the gameplay will be the same as all the other GTA's....love going around killing people and then getting mowed down by the army

this game looks horrible and it has nothing to do with scale...the models are low poly, textures are low res, short draw distance with bad blurring effect, and ugly/boring art style.

Saints row and Crackdown both look far better than this game, and i dont think this could ever come close to being as fun as Crackdown is, especially in co-op.

So it isn't just me. Hopefully, this is the struggling PS3 version, or 360 doesn't get downgraded so that it isn't just the PS3 version that looks poor (it was actually Rockstar that said they feel that graphically the game on both systems has to look equal).
Commented on 2007-05-26 04:52:08
And the game is not done.. Graphical polish is always one the last things that gets done in gamedevelopment, so I wouldn't be surprised at all if the finished game has better textures on the playermodels etc..

It already looks pretty good imho, lots of detail and stuff going on in the city.. It looks alive and real, I like it..

Actually, not to incite some flame war, but it was Rockstar who said the dvd restriction of the 360 was holding back the game.

edit: The also said the ps3 has its own challenges as well...

GTA has never been known for amazing graphics. I remember seeing GTA3 for the first time and thinking "wow that's ugly," especially when I compared it with MGS2 (both games released at around the same time). So if you're expecting amazing graphics, you don't even know.
Commented on 2007-05-26 05:18:45
Scale, scale. Yeah, I know about scale. Look at Crackdown. You could see the entire city, including the cars and all of the little people from what seemed like miles in the air, and yet, it looked fantastic. Maybe I'm just jaded, but Rockstar has yet to impress me with this game. Poor textures, poor animation, and poor models. I wouldn't even care if they stylized it, just please don't let the final game ship looking like this.
Commented on 2007-05-26 05:24:00
^^What he said. ALL the GTA games have been ugly. They have always been low poly , low res textures, bad draw distance ect... I'm shocked some people are saying that this game looks good, GTA has always been about gameplay. If you ever played this game because you thought it looked good and it was fun then there is something wrong with you.

Crackdown doesn't have great scale just cause you can see far from the top of a building. Saint's Row either or past GTA games. Judging from the footage released so far this game is closer to getting the scale right of the buildings and bridges than the others.
Commented on 2007-05-26 05:28:09
gentlemen, scale doesnt necessarily mean the size of the character to his environment. it means the breadth of the game as a whole.
Commented on 2007-05-26 05:40:33
Damn GTA IV, you alright? You look like you feeling sick graphically today:)

So even though you've got a gigantic area to explore in Crackdown, one arguably larger than in any other city-bound free roamer ever, it isn't large in scale?

Okay.

as someone else pointed out, we arent talking about person to car to building size, but overall size of the game...as in if it had 5 islands each bigger than oblivions entire world.

Considering how big this game is and no load times, I think it looks pretty damn good. They still have a little over 5 months to work on the game. I'm sure thing will be polished up nicely by the time it hits stores.

shame on them for not inviting you guys :P

looks great though
Commented on 2007-05-26 09:10:43
I'm looking forward to it. The graphics aren't the best but still pretty decent.

About the game


What's up?
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 6 should incorporate all the halo species to date. Humans, covenant, brutes, flood, forerunner & also introduce a new species (5 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: halo 5 was a disaster storywise. Only way they can fix halo 6 is to drop that other spartan and focus only on master chief (5 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Tiz: i love the anniversary mockups. For the true fans to enjoy the classics with a modern feel. (5 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Anyway, it's early days. The next time we hear about Halo after Halo Wars 2 will be E3, and it will either be H3: Anniversary or a Halo 6 trailer and my money is on H3: A. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz The H6 campaign I meant. (8 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @amerakindesi: I liked 4's campaign as well, 5 was a massive misstep and while Joe isn't necessary for the H5 campaign to be good, I think he is necessary for it to be epic. (8 Hours ago)
  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi To be frank though I loved halo 1, halo 2, halo 3, halo 4 campaigns in that order. 4 was my fav. (8 Hours ago)
