Driving Handling

So we see how the cars handle now. I noticed a lot of you think it looks bad, and some think it looks good.

I for one like it. It's supposed to be realistic, and I think they're trying to persuade us to not just speed all over the town like we used to. I'll drive as fast as I can without losing control, but with the controllers now, you can drive as slow or as fast as you want. (I don't know if PS3 has this)

Maybe the guys were just new to the game so they were get used to it, but I'll still cruise around the city just to listen to music and take it all in.

I do recall a magazine talking about a mission where you have to drive a car across town with two bodies in the trunk and if you hit bumps or whatever, the trunk might open and you have to pull over and shut it without being noticed. Simple solution to this is to just drive like a normal person. I remember another article saying that in free roam multiplayer, you can see other people on the map but once they get closer they disappear until you can actually see them. So you could blend in with regular traffic once this guy is getting close, and once you see the car speeding and weaving through traffic, you can easily take advantage.

Yeah, the cars seem much heavier in this game unlike in the previous games where the cars would just take corners relatively quickly and tightly. I guess it's for the best though, just will take time to adjust to it.

I'm all for the new handling. Driving missions were piss easy in previous titles.

The guy still sucked at it though, but who wouldn't when they first play the game?

I for one think it looks great, the way the physics come into play and many of the vehicles look to handle very differently from others.

I think you can't really judge it yet until you drive yourself for a bit. Like many cars once you get used to it's handling I think you'll be driving a lot better.

Right now all we are seeing are people's "first attempts" at driving many of these so of course they are going to be sloppy, over-turning/under-turning, fishtailing, etc.

I think it will be fine, they just made them handle more like real life. Plus the people playing rushed to play the game so they could film it, and they havent had time to learn yet. I think everyone will get the hang of it rather quickly.

lol well heres the thing, cars that are on a race track generally are race track worthy... take a full size suburban, or heck even an economy car and try to drive that like a race car, i guarantee it will drive much like what we've seen. Everyday cars do not handle like racecars!

reason it was wobbily was because A: he was hitting curbs B: its a top heavy SUV C: he was turning the front wheels left and right.

that and the leaked video driver cant drive lol

hehe anyone remember the first time they played GTASA and got in that picador (elcamino) go it up to speed and tried to stop? yea you slid alot further than previous GTA's but thats the only car...

They're "realistic" in the sense that they're not simulation (GT, Forza), but they're a huge step up from arcade (NFS, Test Drive).

It just looks very good, and very realistic, it will be odd playing because as with most of you I'm use to flying everywhere and not stopping, now it seems that the slower the better, depending on the car.

leaked video drivers don't know how to drive, they are hitting corners at like 60 mph and expect to make the turn.

Exactly. The car handling is not so arcade anymore. You can't take turns at 100 mph anymore by just pulling the handbreak at the very corner.

Now you have to time it, break before taking a corner, like in most simulation racing games.

I think it looks great! I love how the weight of the vehicle shifts and what not. Makes driving much funner! I cannot wait to play.
