GTA4 Xbox 360 Vehicle handling

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Is it just me or does the way the cars handle annoy you?
It feels way to hard to turn a corner, you have to practically slow down to 2 mph to take a corner, it's kind of getting on my nerves. If I hit RB it drifts but overcompensates. I dunno, maybe it's supposed to be this way and I'm making a big deal about nothing...

Played any other GTA games? The cars have always handled loosely. Makes for easier hollywood-style stunts and or crashes. =D

Use A/RB and LT.

Makes it a lot easier I find.

Yeah since GTA3, I've been playing San Andreas for the past few days and the handling feels superior to this version.

IMO San Andreas seemed had a lot better handling then GTAIV.

the handling in GTAIV is what you'd call 'realistic' to a degree. The reason why you like the driving in san andreas is because its so easy to drive fast. In real life you cant take a corner at 90 miles an hour and expect your car to maintain traction.. it just doesnt happen. Thats why you've got to slow down to take a corner. You can still pull it off, use the brake and handbrake to really control a car and you can become pretty adjusted to it. GTAIV places the center of the traction to whichever wheels the engine is powering (obviously) and that means either rear wheel drive or front wheel drive cars. If you take a corner in a powerful RWD car the back end slides out and you have to maintain control until you can shoot off down the road. I find it brilliant. They actually spent good time and effort trying to get the car physics and handling to behave properly. Past GTA games just centered control and power on a pivot and you could drive like a pro no matter how fast you were going. GTAIV doesnt exactly require you to be a Gran Turismo pro driver but it definitely hits the surface of proper car behaviour. If you like arcade racing then you shouldnt expect it from GTAIV, alot of things are meant to be more realistic for this game

The whole psychics system has changed and thus the way cars feel. Have you tried driving super cars because the muscle cars and old cars have a lot of body roll. I suggest driving bikes, or the blista compact.

Beat me to it Hellisforheroes, but your so right thats one of the first things I noticed is how realistically cars felt, from how a big old caddy will glide around and roll left and right, and how a supercar will just rip through everything.

Yeah it's weird since I've never viewed GTA as a realistic type of game.

Well said. I think that some are taken by surprise by the large change in physics to the game. It is much more realistic and now that I am used to it I love it

its a "semi-realistic free-world action game". In other words its an artistic interpretation of New Yorks organised crime society. Its not promising itself to be ultra-realstic because that would just be impossible. Yet its far more true-to-life than GTA has ever been. It is new york, but with an arty tint to it. Can you seriously imagine GTAIV having ultra-arcadey driving physics? its actually be silly.. maybe it suited Vice City as you balled around rocking to Guns 'n' Roses in your bright yellow infernus and your hawaiian shirt.. but if you havent noticed, GTAIV has stepped on new ground. Its grown up. Pretty much everything has changed to a degree for its next-gen makeover and I can honestly say I like it a whole lot more.
