Amidst the turmoil, three very unique criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for tangible opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is less rosy than he figured it would be; and Trevor, a violent dude driven by the opportunity for a cheap high and his next big score.

    After the long wait, PC-gamers get what they have been hoping for. We cannot deny it; the PC is the best way to experience GTA V. Rockstar optimised the game perfectly, and we are happy to start our third and forth play-throughs.

    Sure, the Rockstar Social Club is an annoying hoop to jump through, and hardware fragmentation poses problems for some. But for those with the hardware to run it, GTA V serves as a testament to the PC platform's superiority, and a reminder that good things come to those that wait.

    If you hadn’t had a chance to play it yet at all though, and your computer can handle it, the PC version does definitely feel like the definitive version.

    GTA V PC is the ultimate version of one of the greatest games in history and the best open-world game that you will play until the advent of GTA VI or RDR 2.

    GTA V on the PC is graphically beautiful and runs like half-melted butter.

    Rockstar told us the PC-version would be the ultimate version and they were right. GTA 5 on PC looks incredible and it works almost perfectly. Sadly you might still encounter some bugs and glitches in GTA Online that you already saw on the consoles.

    If GTAV was more fully devoted to being either a comedy or a drama, its narrative may have been more successful. As it is, the most fun to be had in the game comes almost entirely from the moments when the player breaks away from the mission structure and enjoys the world without worrying about the context of its plot.

    Finally, I get to play GTA V on PC!!! I have been waiting a long time for this game, and I can't say I was disappointed.
    This game is one of the best I have played, I am more encouraged to play this game more because I have it on PC... (Don't know why), but I am loving every minute of it.
    I am loving 1st person and how you can hear every little detail of noise that is going on around you, if you are drinking from a bottle, to in the car or just walking outside in a busy or non-busy place.

    This game has made it to one of my favourite games of all time (on PC).

    I just can't wait to get back playing it when I come off.

    I give GTA V on PC a 10/10!

The game was definitely worth the wait. In terms of performance the game looks absolutely incredible at max settings and five hours in I have yet to experience any kind of glitches or crashes.

    This is a refreshing PC release in that there are no major glaring issues right out of the gate at launch. Rockstsar definitely took the extra time to polish this game nicely as it has completely blown me away.

    Finally a pre-order I didn;t regret.

It took me almost a year to complete, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Some have said it has plot holes and story issues, but I personally don't mind. For me, the journey was fun. The world is amazing. I love going to the hills at night and just watching cars drive through the city from a distance. The radio stations, always one of my favorite parts in GTA games, are excellent. They characters are diverse and interesting.

    BUT stay far far away from multiplayer. I hate it. I hate how much everything costs and I hate that Rockstar charges such **** exorbitant prices for their special currency "shark cards". **** Rockstar for that. And **** them for releasing the game THREE separate times just so they could milk it as much as possible.

    Car handling is RUINED! Handling is worse than that of "watch dogs". And watch dogs got a very bad vehicle physics. Very arcade,Car handling is RUINED! Handling is worse than that of "watch dogs". And watch dogs got a very bad vehicle physics. Very arcade, going-on-rails steering, no inertia, braking from full speed is momentary, and there's no way keeping vehicle in a drift. Compared to IV it's a huge step backwards. A whole game feels like it's gone backwards to arcadish-style gameplay like Vice City and San Andreas. Along with the return of planes, bikes, tattoos and leveling the stats of your character. Too bad because otherwise the scale of the game is huge and the world is very thought-out and detailed. Well optimized in comparison to IV. Looks awesome too. Until there is a mod that brings back IV's physics, this is a no-go. Expand

    Heavily delayed game, starting off with downloading problems with the Rockstar Download Manager (forces to download gigabytes of patchesHeavily delayed game, starting off with downloading problems with the Rockstar Download Manager (forces to download gigabytes of patches again and again | Download Errors). This was then followed by server problems.

    After two years of development GTA still has the same bugs as the PS3-Version, including a huge amount of unnecessary loading screens combined with crashes.

    The games lobby-system is really bad, considering that friends who joined your matches are constantly placed in different sessions after playing one match.

    The first heist preparation mission always ends in a white screen error, even if replayed.

    Mods are not supported and singleplayer-modifications will lead to a ban in GTA Online.

    In contrast to that the singleplayer experience and gameplay feeling overall seem to be good.
