    I will say that I know for a fact this game has a bad ass story line and functionality is very good but without a PC release I will probably never play it unless someone let me borrow it for the 360.

    nerf the physics? ... no, it will be the same only with extra setting like vehicle density or something. They will probably go crazy with SSAO quality (HBAO or similar) and number of lights casting dynamic shadows.

    Graphics are actually fine, good detail, big improvement over GTA IV, but far away objects tend to look ugly and have very noticeable jagged edges especially if you are a PC gamer who is used to seeing Anti-aliasing and high draw distances. It is similar to how it is in GTA IV, Red Dead, and L.A. Noire. Never noticed any texture pop-ins aside from the Main game intro which transitions to a lot of places very fast.

    Other things I noticed:

    Game runs smooth, never had any slowdowns yet. It feels like 30 FPS all the time. Although I am not in that part of the game yet where there's alot of kaboom going on.

    There are no loading in between missions. You just enter the house and it just transitions into a cut scene. Like the game is one big story mission. Not mentioning you can switch characters almost any time and then you'll pop in right into them while they are doing something on their own, Characters also change clothes too every time you see them. It feels more realistic.

    In past games when you get one car, then suddenly all the other cars in the streets are the same as yours, In GTA V it's fixed now. you'll see alot of different cars on the streets at the same time now

    The missions are varied and fun now. and includes more "Grand Theft Auto" type of missions, unlike in GTA IV where most of it is just chasing someone, shooting someone and then escaping the police. The things you can do in this game are just insane.

    Very smooth on my ps3, better looking than iv but i wouldn't say by a whole lot. awesome story, awesome mechanics. they really did put a lot of effort into making shooting, fighting, etc better on their own, which makes a better experience. I like the character switching, specials, and stats are back. a lot of minor details that make a big difference.

    Overall I'm very happy with it, and will probably get a discounted copy at some point on pc, but ps3 eases my cravings since shooting is fun with a controller for me now :)

    you do know that people won't shutup about the GAMEPLAY, not the graphics. the gameplay is awesome. so much to do. twice as much as GTA IV. this game can't be beat. :nutkick:

    I'm nearing 30% into the game and still it blows me away. Awesome game with so much to do its crazy. So many mini games to play with good mechanics. When I get home tonight I have a marathon run to do before heading back to the main story. The run isn't required buts its just one other thing you can do that helps build stats.

    I'm spending a lot of time doing yoga, swimming, biking, dirt track racing, tennis, etc etc...

    Visually the game is stunning when you think about everything they filled the world with but the visuals are not up to todays standards. WTF cares though when the game is so much fun.

    When I say stunning I'm comparing it to GTAIV.

    I doubt he was saying the game wasn't fun. Just that he's waiting like others here. Life doesn't end if we aren't playing GTA right now. Graphics don't make a great game, but they do make the game more enjoyable to look at.

    i kinda hate GTA :)

    For sure this game is not for a kid.
    When my kids playing it, i KEEP telling them "this is only a GAME, n you should not go out there n go kill a police or hit anybody using your car and etc etc etc etc"...
    I had enough, uninstalled it... and installed the latest mickey mouse adventure game!

    LMFAO, there is many obvious signs that it's not for a kid even games with magic you have to be careful.

    My question did you buy it for your kid(s) ?, Then your the one at fault not the game and lets face it if it was game like mickey mouse they were playing they got ya REAL good if they asked for it..

    I had it on order from newegg. I went to sleep, woke up and worked as normal. it came at 3pm release day and i stopped working ;)

    she was a little snarky sure but the guy was being a douche. they were both looking for a fight it seems. she is more in the wrong as an employee but as a person he is imo.
