IGN Article on Fighting system

PS. IGN seems continuing the IV coverage for 2nd consecutive week, makes sense.

Thanks for posting this Asif.

in terms of combat GTA IV almost has more in common with Gears of War than it does with San Andreas.
This game is getting better every day.

Overall Rockstar have certainly put a lot of thought into the combat system.

The following are some of the main features stressed in the report:

Intuitive trigger-based lock-on system with the ability to move from target to target or make subtle changes to aim for different body parts (which can, of course, be disabled for a greater challenge)

Agile movement for quick reflexes ("Niko was able to turn in a split second to take out a cop that stepped out of a car right behind him," IGN reports)

Dynamic aiming while driving (aim for the tires!)

Pistols, uzis, and grenades can all be used while driving, albeit without the help of a lock-on system

Ability to slide into cover behind large objects, quickly move to and from cover locations, lean from cover to attack an enemy, and throw grenades from cover with relative accuracy
Thats a short discricption.

Nice find Asif! I always thought the combat was a little weak in GTA games (well in GTAIII I was alright with it because that was good at the time), but when it got to San Andreas, it was just a bit too outdated... I'm looking forward to this overhaul.

Also when you have news like this, if you don't want to write up a news post, PM somebody else on the staff about it so we can get it on the homepage

Lile23: that writing... it looks... ODDLY FAMILIAR! I think a brilliant man wrote it.

If you can use grenades while driving, does that mean that if we're chasing somebody in a car, with a vehicle of our own, that we can shoot out the window and throw a greande onto their backseat?

It certainly creates many possibilities in the realm of combat.

It's not quite as easy as you think...

Grenades! Understandably, however, there's no lock-on system for targeting while driving

And thanks for the welcome.
