A later section of the preview took place during a huge downpour of rain, which again, was absolutely beautiful, impacting the entire city. Driving past pedestrians on the street, I noticed them huddling themselves for warmth, running faster to get to their destination, and holding their hands above their heads to stop the rain from hitting their head. There is just so much attention to detail here that it is difficult to ignore.
I constantly found myself stopping whilst driving around to take in the scenery and visuals, to admire the authentic feeling 1930’s era clothing, accents, vehicles, and setting, it was astonishing to be a part of this world. The map of Lost Heaven may feel smaller at first than what we are accustomed to in open-world games, but with this amount of detail and character, I would hardly say this is a drawback. There are still plenty of areas to visit and travel to, keeping in mind the vehicles of the era aren’t exactly speed demons.
