Grand Theft Auto V's Gameplay Heritage Spans Manhunt and Midnight Club

Last week we saw a side-by-side comparison showing how the combat in Grand Theft Auto V compares to Max Payne 3. Another YouTube video examines other components and finds the DNA of titles ranging from Midnight Club to Manhunt.

The video, by FunWithGuru, points out the obvious similarities with Max Payne 3, but goes on to note how the driving will be more like a racing game, comparing it directly with Midnight Club Los Angeles.


Weapon selection is done by bringing up a wheel, a la Red Dead Redemption, and some mini-map/radar features were also seen in Manhunt.
