Discuss.

It looks damn good to me, though the player models are pretty sucky.

Yeah, seen it. I'm a tad disappointed they couldn't give us a whole new city (I was hoping it would be London), but I suppose as long as they recreate it from scratch, it'll be a fairly new experience.

I believe there's a lot to be revealed yet.

I don't think player models have ever been the strong point of GTA (the civilians were always butt ugly), but I think the other aspects of the game make up for it sufficiently. At least the models have higher resolution textures now.

You kidding? Liberty City is WAY smaller than San Andreas was. About one third the size, probably smaller. Assuming this is a recreation of the original, with no additional cities added on, it should be about the same size as the original, albeit with much more interior room.

Someone from Rockstar said in an interview a while ago that it was their goal to make the environment much more compact, as they felt San Andreas was too spread out to move around easily. I can't say I feel the same way, but that doesn't change what Rockstar is going to do.

Let's hope they make a PC version a li'l sooner than a year from the console release now, eh? Damn PC-haters at Rockstar. Never the less, one of the best game series of all times.

Anyone else noticed?;

Who knows, we could finally gain the ability to travel between cities on totally different islands in this one. Looks alright, but the big lead up to that trailer made it suck.

Looks good, I didn't expect anything less but nice visuals. Still it brings back memories of games that are improved visually due to a new console etc...Now all Sony has to do is input a Wii feature.

Thank god for those defined shadows. That game needed lightmaps so badly. Of course, that's no easy feat with dynamic weather and changes in day time.

Looks really good. I don't mind if it's smaller than SA as long as it's fun to play.

Looks hot.

Like the idea of going back to NY. They needed to do it right with the new graphics engines.

Im gonna come when i'm able to go around New York and its districts wthout any loading screens.

I wasn't waiting for any trailers and therefore wasn't caught up in any hype. I think this looks awesome.
