    Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life. The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world ever created, Grand Theft Auto V blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game’s three lead characters, playing all sides of the game’s interwoven story.

      GTA V returns with a vengeance!

      GTA V is back and this time on next-gen hardware. I have to say, and I've never done this in my 30+ years as a gamer, when I installed t he game and fired it up and played the opening prologue, I started to smile and grin ear to ear with excitement. Make no mistake, this is not just GTA V with better graphics, this is GTA V at it's full imagined potential. If you were pulled into the game last year on the old consoles, this one pulls you in deeper. It's the most immersive and cinematic experience I've ever had playing a video game. This next-gen version goes far beyond just eye-candy, the entire single player campaign has so much life to it now that it's almost overwhelming. When I finished the first mission with Franklin and was allowed to do what I wanted for the first time while playing, I simply started walking around Los Santos to take everything in. Buildings and billboards that were blurry and fade off into the background on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are now razor sharp and highly detailed... for miles! I was looking around at things I had never noticed before because the hi-resolution graphics command you to pay attention. And speaking of looking around, I switched to the new first person perspective and immediately noticed how as I walked past people on the streets of Los Santos, they would make eye contact with me, making the world even more immersive. There are new pedestrians too, with all new things to say and funny conversations to listen in on, which was a welcome surprise. The physics of the game have been rebalanced as well. It's difficult for me to express this in writing, but everything feels like it has a more realistic gravity to it. For example, run into a street post in your car and instead of it feeling like it's made out of paper mache, it actually has some weight now (and can severely damage your vehicle). Some people have complained that the cars are slower in GTA V, I disagree, it feels like everything has a more realistic weight to it, that's all. You can still fly down the street in your ride if that's what you choose to do, but now it actually feels like your in a car and not a toy. I'm barely a few missions in with Franklin, but I'm amazed. Add in the new songs (which are better than the original selections for the game), first person mode and not just enhanced graphics but also enhanced particles, character models and gore effects and you have what feels and looks like a whole new game. I feel like the last year I've been playing GTA V Beta and this game is actually the true finished version of the game Rockstar envisioned. A word about GTA Online: I was able to smoothly transfer my old character into GTA V for the Xbox One with no problems. The new character creator is amazing and offers and large amount of customization options for your character. I spent over an hour tweaking mine, it's a great feature! While the servers have had several issues at launch (I was expecting them to, this is the most popular game series of all-time by the way) I have been able to play a lot today and wanted to say some things about it. To the people that say this game is just a port-over with better graphics, read this carefully: my favorite activity in the GTA Online are Survivals, so I joined a game and played with 3 other people. Within the first minute of playing I knew I had spent my money wisely on this game. The enemies came at us quickly and aggressively. One guy died almost immediately from behind a popular hiding spot on the map because he probably wasn't ready for it. The Survival was intense, fast paced and very realistic. Did we have to wait in hiding spots for several minutes for the enemies to come to us like on the 360 and PS3? No.... oh no we did not. The enemies were coming at us heavy and hard to kill us! Plus, when the helicopters appeared, I took out my minigun to take it down and Rockstar has added new lens flare effects to the gun, new particle effects to the helicopter as it was being shot... it was tremendous, visceral, fast paced and intense! Plus, little things like after winning a race your shown posing in your garage are nice touches that weren't possible on the old consoles. I have yet to experience a 30 player lobby, but as server issues get fixed they'll happen and when they do it will add a whole new dimension to freemode.

      Great Game - NOT for kids - Boo Microtransactions

      As a male in the 21-35 age range, I am the target demographic for the Grand Theft Auto series. And like previous GTA titles, GTA5 is a quality game with an interesting story, great gameplay, and plenty of replay value. If you are someone who isn't easily offended or shocked and enjoy games where you get to do things you're not allowed to do in real life, then you may very well enjoy this game. It is a fun escape from reality and one of those games that can really help you relieve stress and have fun. Like the title of this review states, the game is not at all intended for kids, due to the at-times excessive violence and profanity as well as nudity and adult themes to the story. As required by the ESRB, the association that ensures games are given age-appropriate ratings, the game's packaging clearly states why it is not for kids in a very similar fashion to how I just did. It is amazing to me that, despite how clearly it is stated that the game is not for kids, when you play GTA5's online mode, you find an overwhelming majority of kids playing the game. Luckily, I find the single-player mode to be much more enjoyable, plus the online mode has been designed and modified in such a way that the game developers "strongly encourage" you to utilize their micro transaction system in order to acquire new cars, weapons, or other items. I say strongly encourage because while you can sit there and play missions to earn money literally for hours in order to buy that cool car you've got your eye on, it is so much easier to just spend $60 on in-game money in order to buy that cool car and a new apartment, etc. The micro transaction system in online games is a growing trend, and an unfortunate one as well, since it applies a "pay-to-win" dynamic to games, where casual players with more money to spend can buy rewards that other more dedicated gamers spend time and effort working towards. But you can completely avoid that whole system as I do, and still enjoy the game. Plus those cool cars are much easier and cheaper to buy in the single-player mode, where game money is much more easily attainable. All in all, it's a good game. With hindsight, I could have easily convinced myself it was not worth $60, but as a $30 game, I think it's a good purchase. But not for kids.

      Definitive Edition of Game of Decade

      GTA V was already a masterpiece. The new gen version (Xbox One, PS4 and PC) is simply the definitive edition of the game of the decade. I'm not one to replay games, but since announced, I refrained playing GTA V on Xbox 360, saving it for this next gen version. Improvements Incredibly better graphics, first person mode, some extra content. How is first person mode? It took me a little while to get used as it is not FPS-COD-HALO like. Driving is also little less arcadey but not even close to something like Forza Horizon. Once you realize that all you have to do is control the accelerator and get the timing of the steering you will be zooming in glorious dashboard view throughout Los Santos. Once I got the hang off driving FP mode, I don't want to drive in 3rd person at all. About the shooting in FP, I still use auto-aim but feels like that with some training and tweaking on cursor speed free aim can be fun as well. Problem is the huge dead zone on the aiming analog. Hope RS patches it soon. Should I buy it? If you never played GTA V, its a no-brainer: GET IT NOW! If you played before but never finished the story, PLEASE get this version and do finish the story. It is really an awesome story mode and this version is the perfect way to experience it. If you already finished the story mode before, you may wait a little bit if you have a backlog now (and you should, with so many great games release last 30 days only!). What about online mode? I can't tell about online mode as I grew out of online competitive play. I started online gaming back circa 2002 and played a LOT online. Around 2010 I could not stomach online play at all. All I play now is offline modes and some mega rare co-op with friends and family. So I'll be owing a quick review of online mode.

      Opportunity Lost; Spoiler alert: it's not going...

      The game feels like an opportunity lost. The missions are just strange, the intuitiveness of the camera in 3rd person mode and the artificial feeling of the player characters walk and the inability to efficiently switch from walk to run to back again. It often time feels robotic and just all in all unnatural. It feels less like you're playing AS the player character and more like you're playing WITH a puppet the unnatural way your character moves in 3rd person mode. Target acquisition in FPS mode is horrifying, and makes COD:AW look good. Which it's not. When compared to the gold standard velvety butter-rich smoothness of Destiny it just feels terrible and again decidedly last gen. Your guns don't progress in the story mode, you can be sniped by any rogue player at any time in online mode (or ran over by a pickup truck while posing with co-op friends on the beach in beach wear as I was), there are an infinite number of cheeses, so there in absolutely no competitive balance In the online game. Literally a person of the highest skill who has played several hours each day since launch and doesn't cheese anything can have hundreds of times less loot and cars and condos than some 12 year old kid who bought the game 3 days ago who did all the cheats. Spoiler alert... If you're already playing Destiny...and you're wondering if this game would provide a little comic relief or just spice it up a bit with some variety in your life, You have attempted to cross the wrong bridge. It will gather dust wherever you last set it down after you play it MAYBE 5 hours total. If you haven't played Destiny yet, and you want a real game, buy Destiny. Treat yourself don't cheat yourself. #gameofthecentury

      Haven't played a grand theft auto game since San Andreas and those who know... That was PS2. A looonnggg time ago but I scooped this game up since lots of ppl were talking about it and man it's just a blast from the past. Going on missions, doing simple side jobs, killing people, buying property man!! This takes me back!! Killer graphics on the Xbox One and definitely fun to play. Controls are easy to learn but I never had 1st person shooting in a grand theft auto game so that was new to me. Definitely feels different than a dedicated 1st person shooter. I'm black ops savvy so it does feel a bit different when aiming and considering you have all attachments available to customize a gun in call of duty games, it gives it a bit of a different feeling. GTA Vice City & San Andreas(again old times) had automatic targeting with guns so all u had to do was hold the aim button and shoot. Now it's 1st person so you really have to aim and shoot!! however, I'm addicted again so let's go!!

      GTA Is Not Bad!!!

      Posted
      AmateurReviews

      While many people are quick to argue that this game ranks among the worst in recent memory in terms of content for young children, this is not entirely true. As far as the potential worst fear that parents have for their children, the bad impressions that the content this of game has to offer, this can be entirely bypassed, and never come into contact with throughout the entire duration of the game, whether in the story portion, or the amazing online service Rockstar offers, GTA Online. Another potential fear that parents have of this game, is the drug content, and this can also be entirely avoided. The potential for violence, can be found throughout the game, and is hard to avoid, although can be done. However, if you do slip up with avoiding the violence, it is not bad in the least, and in fact is very similar to that of Call of Duty or Battlefield, and isn't any worse than can be found in either of those games. If you trust your children with this game, and the responsibility that comes with it, then this game can be one of the most entertaining and enjoyable games out there, which can be the most fun when played with friends. If you found this review helpful, then let me know down below. Thank You!!!

      I haven't been "into" a GTA game since GTA3. There was something about the disconnect of characters and player that I couldn't submerse myself into the game. With GTA5 I decided to give it another shot. It being on next gen and with not a lot new out I thought why not? Needless to say, I'm glad I did! This game is HUGE, with so much to do around the city it is easy to get caught up causing chaos for no good reason instead of playing the actual campaign. The character development is a bit slow but once you start playing you get to know them and actually like a couple of them (or at least I did). Even though they are nothing but criminals! I would recommend this game to anyone who is prepared to play tons of hours on a single game and feel like you have barely scratched the surface. In a way it can be overwhelming but for the money this game is a must try as long as you're ok with adult language, humor, etc. (Definitely not for children to play or to even be in the same room while playing). One feature I was really looking forward to was the First Person mode that they introduced. Unfortunately, I feel like it is impossible to aim at anyone with a gun from a distance in this view and driving a car is very hard because you can't see the environment around you very well. It was a nice attempt but I keep it in third person view.
