Excerpt: The Grand Theft Auto (GTA) series gave birth to the open-world game, and although we've seen plenty of open-world games since, each new release in the series continues to raise the bar for the genre to a whole new level. GTA V is no exception. The game is huge - in terms of world size, gameplay, and inevitable impact on games to come - and all gamers owe it to themselves to experience it all.
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.

Excerpt: I can think of a handful of what I consider perfect movies. These aren’t literally perfect movies, of course. I don’t believe in some Platonic ideal movie made manifest. Instead, these are movies where a uniquely talented writer, director, and actors understand each other completely, and they have something relevant to say, and they somehow advance the medium or tell a story that connects with me.
Excerpt: After three solid weeks of exploring Los Santos and Blaine County, after more than a thousand driven miles, after more than 50 hours of story-based gameplay, 20 hours of random sandboxing and goofing off, and after more than 12 hours playing online I am finally ready to offer my review for Grand Theft Auto 5. It’s pretty cool. What?
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. Tweet This product was submitted by the publisher for review.
