You can expect Rockstar to push the envelope and again define this genre. Will be great. Don't sleep on Saint's Row though. It has some SERIOUS potential. I still think SR was a better game than San Andreas.... granted, it's newer, and is a smaller game (scale of city and things to do)... But SR solved the pesky issues that GTA has ben plagued with, like combat.

Since the trailer showed no gameplay you can't judge it to much but it is visually so much better than any of the other gta's has more of a realistic feel. I mean I know more powerful graphics but I thought gta always had a cartoonish feel a little not alot.

problem is gta has never been known for a great storyline so what could it hurt to add some customization. I mean within reason like since this is based around a russian you could make it so you can customize how he/she looks and keep the same storyline.

I still feel like this will be the greatest game ever made, up until GTA 5.

My only beef is the Russian character, but surely, I'll get used to it probably the same damn day the game comes out, lol. I'm a GTA fanatic, admittedly. One thing that would be nice is if they bring back the San Andreas customization, which I'm sure they will.. like hair cuts, facial hair, clothes, etc.

Btw, this may not be an NY-based (Liberty City) game. It may include Vice City (Miami) and San Andreas (LA) as well. What we know of now that it is modern day, and part of the game is NY (Liberty City)

If they can have another area on PS2 like San Andreas had Vegas, then they can have 2-3 more with next-gen. I honestly wouldn't mind an all out NY with a ton of space, but adding to it would be fine as well.

03-29-2007, 11:13 PM
I'm suprised they are going back to Liberty City, but this looks like is might be a full representation of NYC instead just having some elements of NYC in Grand Theft Auto III.

Also, none of the GTA games have ever been showcases for graphics, so I'm not sure why anyone would expect anything mindblowing. It looks very good for a next-gen GTA.

Regardless, we're all gonna buy it, so it's not like it matters what any of us think anyway. :lol:

IGN Editor's first Impressions of the Trailer


Jeremy Dunham, Editor in Chief, IGN PlayStation Team
It's good to see that the location is now a proper New York (or Liberty City, or whatever they're calling it). I was really impressed by the lighting and the level of detail in each of the buildings; the animations and activity shown by the passers-by was great too, and the new Jean Reno lead character certainly looks different from past protagonists. Of course, he's not really Jean Reno, but it definitely looks like him... only with a Russian accent. It's great to hear that everything shown in the trailer, according to Rockstar reps, is all in-game as well. I'm left highly impressed.


Hilary Goldstein, Chief News and Features Editor, IGN .com
The problem with building month-long hype for a trailer is that each day leading up to the trailer grows fan expectation. There's no way the GTA IV trailer could give fans everything they wanted or reveal too much about the game. But I liked what I saw. Seeing a Liberty City revealed to look almost identical to NY (it fooled me!) with numerous identifiable landmarks, including the Chrysler Building and Grand Central Terminal gave me a bit of a charge. It's about time Rockstar gave up on *****footing around the idea of real places, buckled down and gave us free reign in over as close to a representation of NYC as possible. What better place to debut a true GTA adventure than in the city that never sleeps (or its closest representation)?

The trailer showed a day/night cycle, some swanky next-gen graphics and revealed one character who apparently belongs to the Russian mob. If Rockstar uses real gangs, as Erik Brudvig suggested after seeing the trailer, GTA IV could be pretty brilliant. I expect nothing less than a full-scale New York City replica with functional subway system, a true blue Yankees-esque Stadium and lots of innocent pedestrians to endanger. Since the gameplay remains a hidden secret, I am still slightly apprehensive about falling in love with GTA IV. So far it looks fantastic -- but if Rockstar doesn't fix its controls and give me something more than what's come in past GTA games, I'll be disappointed. That said, following the trailer debut, GTA IV is definitely a game that is high on my wish list.
