Conclusion: Grand Theft Auto 5 was years in the making, I was pretty much ready to play this game as soon as I was done with GTAIV and when Rockstar unveiled the first trailer I knew I had to have it. This game is a masterpiece and truly displays the talent of the folks over at Rockstar Games. The voice acting is amazing and I guarantee that you will laugh your butt off plenty of times while playing the game.
Excerpt: The Grand Theft Auto series is perhaps the seminal franchise of adult gamers. Sales now exceed 30 million units. Grand Theft Auto V is just the latest in the cultural phenomenon, managing nearly a billion dollars in revenue on its first day alone. Commercial success aside, GTA V has also garnered rave reviews. Some have hailed it the best game of the current generation of consoles. This is a bit of an overstatement but it is indeed a good game.
Excerpt: Grand Theft Auto V deserves accolades for its innovative triumvirate of antiheroes, its many and varied missions, and the sprawling depiction of Los Santos and the hillbilly outbacks. But to rip off what an erudite author once said about Oakland, there is no "there" there. I can't imagine any scenario in which a literary icon like Gertrude Stein would be critiquing a video game, but that legendary putdown can also apply to the Greater Los Santos Area.
Pros: Great script and most fully structured game in the history of the GTA franchise, Los Santos has been brought to life with its incredible size, scope, and realism, Brings back the gleeful comic-book nihilism of earlier GTA games
Cons: The overwhelming Los Santos lacks a strong sense of place, Open-world play lacks the unfettered thrills of earlier games
Excerpt: Grand Theft Auto IV was a disappointment in my view. True, I felt it was a very good game, although it wasn’t the strongest entry in the series. Released over 5 years after that game, Grand Theft Auto V has certainly been a long time coming, and it’s bigger and better than GTA IV in every conceivable way.
Summary: Grand Theft Auto V is a giant undertaking. There’s so much to do in Los Santos it’s almost intimidating. That's not a bad thing, especially since everything offered is a blast. If ever there were a proper sendoff to a magnificent seventh console generation, it's Grand Theft Auto V.
Pros: Huge world bursting with life and activities, Three-character dynamic works incredibly well
Cons: Texture popping throughout the game, sometimes in crucial spots, Repetitive dynamic events sometimes break immersion
Conclusion: The franchise returns with even more gratuitous violence and grimy perversions of the American dream. All this adds up to the best GTA yet, in every way possible. Smash, steal, and shoot your way through what could be the biggest open-world game ever. The gripping narrative will keep you on the edge of your seat or feel free to spend countless hours doing whatever the hell you want to—to whoever the hell you want.
Pros: Gorgeous graphics. Fun to play. Engaging storyline. Open-world mayhem. Lets you switch between the three major characters on the fly. Fantastic music.
Cons: iFruit app not available on Android at launch. Online servers slow or inaccessible during test period.
Excerpt: Devenue très imposante au fil des épisodes, la franchise Grand Theft Auto ( GTA ) attire toujours plus de joueurs. C'est ainsi que GTA 5 était très attendu par une grande majorité de fans, d'autant plus que le dernier né de Rockstar North promettait de nombreuses améliorations aussi qualitatives que grisantes. Et pourtant tout n'était pas acquis, puisque le développeur avait déjà bien exploité les capacités des jeux open world et des histoires de gangsters.
