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: Single Player It's a Cynical World The world of Grand Theft Auto V (GTAV) is a busy place. Developer, Rockstar North, has crafted a world so heavily populated with things to do and events to experience, that its world becomes a game in itself. The result is much the same as for all of GTAV's predecessors: uninhibited chaos and fun. The difference this time, is that GTAV feels like the premium edition, the culmination and epitome of those before it.
Summary: " GTA V " is in some ways the best game ever made. The huge and expansive world brings a level unparalleled realism, size and scope that most developers wouldn’t even try to build. There’s also an enormous amount to do, with content from the serious to the hilarious, as well as more mundane stuff that’s still as good as many games in that specific genre.
Summary: Grand Theft Auto V is fast, vast, and vile—but it’s also a lot of fun. It might be my inner Terrible Person talking, but I had a great time causing mayhem in Los Santos and the surrounding area. I also found myself doing something I have yet to in any GTA to date: role-playing the characters.
Summary: You already know that Grand Theft Auto V is a big sequel with dozens (if not hundreds) of hours of gameplay, but it turns out that the game's best assets isn't its size at all. Instead it's the focused story about friendship, loyalty and what to do when the past comes back to haunt you. Rockstar Games has managed to exceed my expectations and create one of the best games of this generation. This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
Conclusion: All in all, Grand Theft Auto V is pretty easily the best GTA yet. You could argue that other entries had more interesting worlds to explore or better stories, I suppose, but GTAV just plain plays better than the rest of them. Compared to the rest of the open world crime sandbox genre, there are elements that perhaps other games have handled better, but no other title comes together into a complete package the way that GTAV does.
Excerpt: The series that popularised the open-world sandbox action genre is back after a notable five year absence, but Grand Theft Auto V now lives in a world where inFamous and Assassin’s Creed are real and exciting alternatives, while Saints Row has carved out an identity of its own. What has Rockstar Games created in order to once again stomp its authority on the videogame world?
