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. With options at a premium, the crew risks it all in a myriad of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life. Expand

    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.

    This is an update of a previous review.
    I Bought the steam version and my steam social club id has the dreaded underscore so no go amigo. I got a refund and bought it on DVD used a different social club account and it's all good. My last score was 5 as I couldn't actually play which wasn't great.
    I now can. Challenge my 10? how? this game is amazing. How could it be improved? To my mind as we are now it couldn't. I has a gaming beast and nothing touches this. Nothing!

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.

    Offline is alright. The only issue I ran into offline was that the game didn't detect my headset and I had to go into the options and go downOffline is alright. The only issue I ran into offline was that the game didn't detect my headset and I had to go into the options and go down to the voicechat option and just move the cursor off the option to somehow fix it. Rockstar's website has a collectables tracker. It is a nice approach to collectables that other games should consider implementing. Trevor is a great character.

    That's where my praise ends for the most part. Online is a buggy mess worse than a Bethesda game. I basically can't go through a session without running into bugs. My cousin notified the game that he wanted to skip it. He still had to do the tutorial. Another example was that I had to rob a store as part of the tutorial. The store that the game sent me to didn't have an npc manning the cash register. I ended up going into another session to respawn the NPC. One bug my cousin has run into is that he cannot buy properties because a character in charge of reselling stolen cars hasn't called him. Not being able to buy a property means he can't host a heist or store cars in garages. Trying to search Google for fixes to this issue has been unfruitful. At rank 20 my cousin and I could no longer invite each other to missions after entering free mode. We thought it was another bug. It turns out that we were being forced to do a survival mission in the middle of the map before we could invite each other to another mission. I dubbed it the rank 20 tutorial mission. Our friend got to level 20 and wasn't forced into doing said rank 20 tutorial mission. That same friend has had the road texture disappear while he was driving. My cousin has had the minimap display as a blank box. We did the mission Repo - Burn Rate and after defeating all the enemies the mission refused to complete. My cousin said my character had an enemy marker on him on the minimap after this refusing to complete bug happened. In our most recent attempt at playing the prison break heist together a car refused to allow my cousin to drive it. It had to be driven by our friend. During the first part of said heist could no longer run, no longer eat snacks or enter cars. I ended up having to walk away from the area to complete the mission. Then while loading the post heist area my game was stuck on the loading screen. It started slowly showing the GUI over top of the loading screen. This is all after we waited about 10 minutes to get a fourth person to join us as the game mandates that 4 players must be playing said heist. I didn't get the rank 25 achievement until I logged in later at rank 26. Just a wide variety of bugs for 12 hours of online gameplay.

    Then there's the things that you might think are bugs but are actually gameplay elements. Like not being able to steal and save high end cars online in free roam. You have to buy them with your phone. For the longest time we were trying to figure out how to host a mission as driving to the mission point on the map simply puts you into another person's mission set up. It turns out we had to navigate the menu system in order to host a job. Or someone flying a hover bike while shooting rockets at you. Is it a hacker or is it part of the game? Getting set on fire while water shoots you into the air during freeplay mode. Is it a hacker or is it a bug?

    And then there's the annoying things. You can press a button to "like" after a mission. Its not clear whether this means you like the map or whether you like the players you are with as it doesn't let you specify which player did a good job. It does things like muting Discord while taking 5-10 minutes to launch into online mode. The game has a mission where you fly helicopters to repo cars. The mission sounds great until you realize that 3/4 of the cars are in a garage and need to be driven into the driveway in order to hook the crane onto them. Oh and the properties will have trees around which can damage your helicopter blades. Then you get annoyed with just how finicky the hook is at latching onto cars after your 10th attempt at hooking the car. The online tutorial doesn't consist of telling you how to queue up a job through the in-game menu or how to deposit money through the phone instead of wasting time trying to locate an atm in freeroam. It instead forces you to do things like participate in a race. Why you need to have your hand held to do something that you could do in offline mode isn't clear. Lamar then sends you to steal some drugs for Gerald also as part of the tutorial. It does this before sending you to a gun shop to buy ammo. But don't worry you'll likely just die before you run out of pistol ammo.

    If it was just me having a buggy online experience I could chalk it up to having a weird computer set up they hadn't anticipated however all these bugs happening to 2 friends and myself leads me to believe the game is to blame.

After rejoining I am forced to leave passive mode for the introduction missions.

I feel no desire to play this game again in my life. Expand
