I so hope they've improved the melee combat in this one.

While GTA has never been specific on melee combat, every game improved on the fighting, then GTA IV took a step back. I hope they at least brought the fighting back to San Andreas level, with a few different moves and attacks you could do.

I'd love if they ever went with how The Warriors game did with melee. You could do a good number of attacks and could use the environment around you to beat the crap out of someone. There were also special moves, plus the ability to run and tackle someone.

The Warriors also kinda had a wanted system, and when you fought cops you could resist arrest and avoid being handcuffed. If you were cuffed, you could unlock the cuffs if you happened to have a key.

These kind of features seem perfect for a GTA game. The Warriors also being a R* game works too.

You were able to pick up small items off the streets and throw them in GTAIV, so I guess there's a small glimmer of hope, haha. I wish there were more beat-em-up games in general like the warriors; it's a dying genre.

I really miss The Warriors. Definitely one of my favorite games on the last gen. I loved the modes where you could choose an area and have a big gang war. I remember throwing people in front of the train on the subway level, and throwing people off of rooftops. Oh man. How I wish it was backwards compatible on the Xbox. I suppose I could just buy it on the PSN, but eh...

Man, I would absolutely love melee like The Warriors in V complete with those stealth executions. I was surprised that IV didn't have that grapple system when even Bully had a version of it. It's such an obvious addition to the game.

Not only that, it was awful in Red Dead Redemption as well.

Man I need to try out this The Warriors game. :l

I agree with you TC.

One thing for me, if there is a fight club, I would like an exclusive mechanic in the cage. Something like UFC would be cool.

This. I actually felt the IV melee brought a sense of weight to the punches. You could really see and feel the impact when jabbing someone in the face or kicking their sides. The RDR melee looked and felt outlandish, the whole thing was laughable.

Hope the combat is something like Sleeping Dogs.
