A GTA V / Max Payne 3 Mashup.
YouTube poster, datarace1, posted a video which shows the glaring similarities between the game play in Max Payne 3 and the much anticipated latest installment in the GTA series, Grand Theft Auto V.
Rockstar Games hasn’t been shy about the fact that they have shared some aspects of gameplay from Max Payne 3 to improve the often-based combat elements of grand Theft Auto. It’s difficult in a game like GTA, which incorporate so many different small elements, to make each as polished as those of games with a more narrow gameplay focus.
Datarace1, commenting on his own video, points out several similarities and dofferences he has observed in the video:
“A few things that i’ve noticed through this comparison:
1 – Franklin’s crouched-walk approach to the car is much faster than MP3, it’s a little hard to tell here because the MP3 character presses the cover button from further away which smoothly automates to the car. This “fast crouch” was present in both Episodes From Liberty City and Red Dead Redemption, but not GTA IV.
2 – When Franklin is walking toward the building while firing from the hip, he is walking a bit slower than the MP3 character, but when he brings the gun up to his shoulder on the 5th and 6th targets, the walking speeds seem the same.
3 – The GTA V camera has been backed away from the character a bit so that you can see more of your surroundings at once.
Probably tons of other small differences as well, but you can count on great controls that you will learn to_ love (if you haven’t already).”
These details are minutia, but the fact that one has to look so deeply to discern any differences speaks to what we can expect to see in the gameplay of the upcoming GTA V, which releases this September.
