Wow, looks worse than before xP

Oh well, game'll probably be great though

Looks a lot better than the newest screens for 2Days2Vegas though.

I think for a game of this scale, it looks very good.

Dont know why they would release these screens, or any of that matter, they just look horrible, the videos on the otherhand are where the graphics really come through.

First pic looks great. I really don't know anything about this game so I ask if thats some kind of filter you can use while playing? Photo mode? Looks kinda weird :S

I'll do my best not to comment on the visuals that I see here. Instead I'll just say that I hope the game goes in a different direction than the past titles. The whole thing with the irrelevant missions have become tired. Give me a reason to want to finish this game from beginning to the end and kill the whole mauling pedestrians as the bread and butter of the game. It's become a little long in the toothe. I'd prefer a mix of rpg/action.

Looks awesome. The 1st pic is just a bad pic, the others look much better.

I'm super hyped for this game.

And seems to me that people trolling this, never cared for GTA and are just hating for the sake of it, get your head checked.

When are people going to realize why the visuals look so terrible?? the game isnt made to be played up close, and its in a free roaming city...
Commented on 2008-01-23 21:20:10
The visuals are far from terrible. Open world games have to make compromises and it really sounds like GTA4 more than makes up for them if you read the latest previews.

I think the graphics look amazing for a GTA game

What do you expect, Final Fantasy / Metal Gear Solid graphics?

We all know GTA is about gameplay, and not once have they failed to the majority of people, which is proven as each sequel sells more then the previous

just watch the movies and you see that in action it all looks brilliant.. so stop whining about the graphics.

Amazing? The screens are average at best... and by how is saying how poor the game looks whining? If everyone kissed arse constantly nothing would get better.

i assume it's like halo 3 ---> still fine graphics but not mindblowing ... as for in the open world and extra options and customization it will stand out .

I think : )
Commented on 2008-01-23 21:39:06
Read the previews... they say it looks stunning graphically. Stills cannot do a game justice. But I don't think you're gonna find uber high res textures in such a large world with this gen's 256mb texture budget.
Commented on 2008-01-23 21:50:59
doesnt look amazing, but it doesnt "terrible" or "horrible" like some people here have stated. but as long as it plays as good or even better then it did last gen and as long as it looks better then san andreas (which it does) then i'm happy.

it'll be amazing. i have no doubts.

Since I played Crackdown, when I see a game with a big city I just think: "Damn! Look at all that big buildings, and I won't be able to jump and climb them!" Then I get sad and I think: "I don't like this game :("
Commented on 2008-01-23 22:00:42
I think it looks perfectly acceptable for a next-gen game, especially given the scale that it's going to be at.

The main character seems to look a bit like manchester city and bulgaria football (or 'soccer') star martin petrov, don't you think?

For those not familiar with him:

Am I looking at the same screens? For a GTA game these look amazing.

Haha me too, I think I'll stick to the likes of more interesting free-roaming open world titles like Crackdown, Just Cause 2, Mercenaries 2 and Prototype. I'm a little tired of the gansta/er scene with these games and want something a little more interesting. Even Mafia 2 looks better/more interesting.
Commented on 2008-01-23 22:52:37
release it already damn it! I need my fix!
Commented on 2008-01-23 23:00:10
It'll look far better on my HDTV :)
Commented on 2008-01-23 23:28:03
I don't see any problem with the graphics, it looks fantastic, especially considering the size of the world, and the fact there are no load times.

What I find amusing though, is how many features it seems to be "borrowing" from Saints Row, after SR was heavily critisised as being nothing more than a GTA clone. ;) It's also getting suspicious that they still haven't shown anything from the PS3 version. I'm guessing there was some truth to the rumours of it being the cause of the huge delay?

What's wrong with you people saying it looks bad? In these shots you can see the stylization more than ever before. It doesn't look mindblowing in single shots, and even the full game in motion probably won't be mindblowing graphically, but it looks good, especially considering the scale.

[edit : just to be clear, the game is supposed to look like the box art of all the 3d GTA games (take a look at it and you'll see what I mean)]

People who make statements like "wow, this looks worse than before" and "this looks terrible"are ill and need to take a few tablets.

only the ps3 has a 256 mb limit on textures, the 360's ram is unified so if they wanted to use 400mb on textures they could. I doubt they would but..they could.
