The game features realistic vehicular controls, a somber story, and more side missions. While some gamers were upset at first, these controls forced gamers to be deliberate in their driving, and they adapted a realistic mindset. The end result was a much more enjoyable game than the previous installments.
GTA IV has more missions
Unlike its predecessors, GTA IV is more serious and leaves more wiggle room for you to get involved in missions, even if they don’t have very big consequences. The game’s missions are structured to be more realistic and not punish you for minor crimes, which is refreshing.
There are 88 main story missions in GTA IV. Some of them can be played concurrently, while others will only unlock after they’ve been completed. The main missions are split into three categories: Broker-Dukes, The Lost and Damned, and Bohan. Each chapter in the game features a different set of missions.
The main storyline is much darker than the previous games. Instead of irreverence and over-the-top setpieces, GTA relies on a dark, gloomy backstory and muted colors. This means that the game can be difficult to finish. It’s important to make sure you’re up for the challenge.
One of the most challenging missions in GTA IV is called Snow Storm. It involves stealing heroin from the Angels of Death. It requires sneaking into the hospital, fighting Angels of Death, and escaping from the hospital. This mission is not easy, and will require the player to be an expert in stealth.
The most fun missions in GTA IV are the bank heist missions. This mission is a classic, and is definitely one of the most challenging in the series. The mission starts out cool, but the difficulty increases quickly after the money is stolen. This mission requires you to make your way through law enforcement and NOOSE agents while trying to escape.
It has a more somber story
GTA IV is a more somber game than the original San Andreas, but it has some humor, too. The protagonist, Niko Bellic, comes to America to start a new life and hunt down the man who destroyed his old life. The character is a complex one, with more layers than any of the characters in the previous game.
In GTA IV, Niko meets Broker and hangs out with Roman. Unfortunately, he gets arrested, and a witness notes down his licence plate. This leads to him being deported. Despite his efforts to evade arrest, Niko is ultimately convicted and is sent to jail.
GTA IV is not entirely without its flaws. One of the biggest concerns that gamers have about the game is its story. Rockstar tried to make the story more realistic by making it more serious and complex. The game’s storyline is about redemption and making a new start, but it feels a little too simplistic for the GTA series. It is not bad, but it doesn’t make for the most interesting game.
There are multiple endings to GTA IV. There are multiple ways to play this game, and all of them are incredibly different. You can choose to kill Michael or Trevor, or you can work with Trevor to take down Steve. The ending in GTA IV isn’t always happy, though.
It has more side missions
GTA 4 is an open world game with a great selection of side missions. While the game does have 69 Main Missions, there are also plenty of side missions available to complete. Side missions are random encounters you can have with residents of Los Santos. They are indicated with a “?” icon.
Side missions are optional but necessary for completing 100% of the game. In GTA IV, you can choose from a number of side missions, including random character missions, helicopter tours, games, bars, restaurants, and even a comedy club. Side missions are also incredibly realistic and feature unique stunts. Although GTA IV does not have as many as GTA V, it still has a decent number of side missions.
It has modern game physics
One of the most notable features of GTA 4 is its use of modern game physics. Before, Rockstar games had clunky physics that made pedestrians fall out of cars when they were shoved and cars fly out of the road during crashes. While the physics in GTA 4 have been heavily modified, the game’s full RAGE engine is still a stunning showcase for the technology.
The physics in GTA 4 are some of the best in the series. The game’s Rockstar Advanced Game Engine bolsters impressive use of gravity and dynamic objects in the environment. This is clear when a character like Niko falls from a building or a helicopter lands in the water.
Another impressive feature of the game’s physics is the ragdoll physics. This new technology makes falling pedestrians and enemies more realistic. The physics also allow players to spin before hitting the ground. One GTA 4 video shows a player falling off a mountain and flailing his arms before landing on the ground. The dynamic physics of GTA 4 make the game feel incredibly realistic, and make gun fights a more realistic experience.
While the game’s character physics haven’t been fully implemented in GTA 4, the developer has been working on them. Ubisoft has been testing prototypes of a character rig that is capable of reacting to player input. Batman’s cape is an example of this: it morphs according to the player’s movement.
The new game’s physics also allow players to engage in more realistic fistfights with NPCs. The physics in GTA IV are also more realistic and allow players to knock things out of people’s hands.
It has more collectibles
The new game offers more collectibles than GTA IV, and some of them are difficult to find. The Spaceship Parts are a prime example of a hard collectible. They are located in hidden locations, and are difficult to find. Peyotes are another difficult collectible, with no hints for finding them. But Nuclear Wastes are relatively easy to find, and they give you money when you collect them. You can also find the Epsilon Tracts, which give you a nice achievement, but only after reading an annoyingly long text.
But, if you’re a gamerscore addict, you might feel motivated to collect all the collectibles in the game. Unfortunately, most of them are pointless. For instance, killing 200 pigeons will give you an Annihilator helicopter near Star Junction, but this is only one of the game’s collectibles.
