Rockstar Games went into detail earlier this month about the new shooting mechanics in its upcoming release, Grand Theft Auto V. At the time they said that GTAV will borrow heavily from Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3.

"A massive amount of work went into overhauling animation systems, targeting, and camerawork to really open up new opportunities for the player in the kind of freeform, open-world action shootouts that are the heart of Grand Theft Auto V. We wanted shooting to feel more precise and satisfying while supporting multiple styles of play." Rockstar Associate Producer Phil Hooker told GI.

Now YouTube user datarace1 was good enough to deliver a visual confirmation with a side-by-side gamplay video. Max Payne 3 featured a highly realistic but sometimes-awkward shooting system, but was definably a giant leap forward from when compared to Grand Theft Auto IV.

What are your impressions of Max Payne 3's shooting mechanics? If it ain't broke don't fix it?
