GTA IV Trailer Analyzed Bit by Bit

You’ve seen the trailer, now see the analysis. The folks over at GameVideos must’ve been prepared for the new GTA IV trailer since they put up a video analysis of it just a couple hours after it was released. If there’s one trailer that deserves to be picked apart for tiny clues about the full game, this is it. Here, they save all you crazed fans from picking apart the trailer yourselves. This analysis picks through each shot in the video, searching for clues to the story and to just appreciate certain moments even more closely. The physics for instance are looking spectacular for this new installment in the franchise. Wait, a Grand Theft Auto game that pushes boundaries graphics-wise? Who’d have thought?

its prety but pushes no bounderies save for scale. compare this to gears, uncharted, UT3, MGS, or Lair (Graphicaly) and it doesent stand up.

thats ok, gta is about content. i would have prefered to have passable graphics and a world bigger than San Andreas with much more minigames and side quests. the online sounds awesome, but a bit more co-op would have been nice. like an expanded version of the turf game in San Andreas. kind of like assault games with slightly randomised objectives.

Modding would have been nice but the 360 version caps that. still i always felt an easy level editor for the san andreas engine would have rocked if you could structure levels and add your own sounds. it had stealth, driving, gunplay and platforming. you could theoretically use it to make games from silent hill to metal gear solid to tomb raider. it would work quite well IMO the new engine would work better with new physics ai, online ect. you could even go for a fightin game with the combat styles. the game play was so versitile hundreds of fan mods would be released. people would buy the game just for the mods which translates into profit.

dammit, i realy want gta 4 modding now… maby next game…

Wow great analysis. Pause the screen every few seconds and point out the obvious. “they’re driving on the tarmac” “there’s a tv in the limo” “here’s a guy with a saw”

no kidding? you guys are so analytical.
