After a long wait and some very interesting advertisement, the GTA IV trailer is now out.
So what can we see?
First of all it does feel a little bit disappointing. The actual game images are only about fifty seconds of it and mostly consist of random flybys. Graphically it does look impressive, however, it’s a trailer, I’m basing nothing on that. It will be set in Liberty City [although it could always involve travelling to different locations], GTA’s equivalent of New York and feature a Russian protagonist.
Life is complicated. I killed people, smuggled people, sold people. Perhaps here things will be different.
Human trafficking? Illegeal immigrants? Very strange choice, but I am glad that they are moving away from the whole ‘Gangsta’, ‘Homie’ stuff….
There are some great adverts on the buildings though. Keep an eye out for the ‘Getalife’ building or the adverts for ‘Top Hooker’ and ‘Sprunk’.
Overall it does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s a teaser trailer. We know of the location, the main character and that it is set at this point in time.
We will see, we will see….
Edit: Just seen that Becky has also posted her views. Have a look over at Sprites and Bites. :)
