Ask any GTA fan what their favourite mission of all time is, and Three Leaf Clover is guaranteed to rank highly. The heist mission from Grand Theft Auto IV encapsulated everything that was great about the series in 15 minutes of gaming nirvana. It had everything: a bank robbery with hostages held at gunpoint; a shootout against SWAT teams on the streets of Liberty City with police helicopters circling above; and a last-ditch attempt to escape the cops by fleeing along the subway tracks on foot. It was action packed, was bursting with variety and was superbly paced. It was the perfect GTA mission.
Protest reveals bad reviews of the Grand Theft Auto series, which is particularly noticeable in the production of GTA V and GTA IV. It is with these titles in mind that the Take-Two tool developed by OpenIV to create modifications. Changing the ratings on Steam is really noticeable.
Importantly, the action spilled all over the internet and critical voices can be found in many places. Fans create even short films about the whole situation, and some examples can be found below. There has also been a petition in which users demand Take-Two’s withdrawal from its fashion policy, but it is certain that it will not affect the change that has already been made.
Heartbreakingly, Rockstar is not quite ready to show off the heists in Grand Theft Auto V just yet. However, the first mission unveiled is just as explosive and, more importantly, it perfectly demonstrates the dynamic between the game’s three protagonists.
Before the action in the GTA V review column we were able to see that the notes were “Overwhelmingly positive”. Currently the overall rating is “Mixed”, and this is based solely on the latest reviews “Overwhelmingly negative”. In reviews, there are a lot of nasty words directed to the publisher as well as Rockstar itself. Players are blaming companies for damaging the modder community and duplicating lies about OpenIV.
Even the cops are more prevalent and when we switch over to Franklin his drive through Los Santos is interrupted by the shrieking of police car sirens in the distance, shortly followed by three cop inceptors cutting through the traffic in pursuit of an unseen felon. Obviously, we’re all used to feeling the heat on our backs when we’ve broken the law in previous GTA games, but the presence of the boys in blue feels much more evident in everyday life in GTA V.
A post, that can be found on the official Open IV website, says that the cease and desist was received on June 5th. Open IV creators said the problem stemmed from the claims that the program allows third parties to violate the security features, modify the software and therefore work to Take-Two disadvantage.
Open IV creators added that they have carefully considered all options and settled around the decision that there was no point in trying to disapprove of Take-Two statement. Open IV representatives considered the option of taking legal actions against the above claims with the aim of proving that modding was fair use. However, they decided that going through the lengthy legal procedures was a waste of time.
