    One of the best PC games ever made, graphics are still stunning and overall it's way superior than mediocre games like Cyberpunk 2077.

    GTA 5 is absolutely amazing and one of best games I've played. There's a metric f*ck ton of content, the world is huge and looks fantastic. The game is very well optimized for PC, there are options for everything you can wish for and the controls are great. I've never seen such a good console port and a game that is technically so close to perfection. The graphics are stunning and I get 60 FPS on a high-mid range PC.

    The story shows in an entertaining and satirical way how f*cked up the U.S. intelligence services are. Switching between the main characters offers a nice change of pace. There are also a lot of side quests, some with their own story and some generic, but all fun.
    GTA Online offers just as much content as the single player. Coop missions, races, PvP, side activities and now also heists, which are awesome if you can find a good team.

    ---

    It's a pity you can't choose your own car for the story, as the default cars are very unspectacular. You can of course use another one, but you risk losing it during the missions, along with all upgrades - even if it was stored in the garage.
    The other thing that distracted me a few times is the weapon selection: Hot keys don't make sense, because instead of equipping the selected weapon, they cycle to the next weapon and equip that. Your weapon choices also aren't saved properly.

    GTA Online sometimes has connection issues and doesn't have any kind of cheat protection. Heists were a great addition, but unfortunately only the host can progress his heist quest. Rockstar Social Club is pretty bad all around (UI flaws, not enough server resources, lack of functionality).

    Sadly, the game also has DRM which forces you to go online every so often.

    ===

    Overall GTA 5 is an outstanding game that sets the bar higher for the quality of all future games in most categories.

    Worth the wait!
    In this era of poor quality ports, it's refreshing to get something on PC that has had a lot of work put into it to let the advantages of PC gaming shine. The game looks spectacular, playing at 65fps @ 2560x1440 everything maxed (except grass & AA), it almost looks photorealistic at times. At least the city, environment, and cars. The people still look like rubber. Edit:

The game looks spectacular, playing at 65fps @ 2560x1440 everything maxed (except grass & AA), it almost looks photorealistic at times. At least the city, environment, and cars. The people still look like rubber. Edit: My specs are core i5-3570k @ 4.4ghz, AMD R9 280x 3g VRAM, 8GB RAM, SSD, Qnix 2560x1440 monitor @ 120hz.
    Gameplay is a blast. I've put in over 100 hours - on single player. And still haven't finished. I've been taking my time, exploring, enjoying the activities and adventures. The level of detail, quality of models and textures, care put in, is all amazing. Take Dying Light as a comparison -- there are about 4 different building types, and about 10 different objects inside buildings, all looking the same (chest, basket, drawer, closet, first aid cabinet.) Still a fun game, but in GTA V I don't see models and texture being reused over and over. The massive, sprawling world is full of unique little nooks and crannies.
    The Online portion is fun, but sessions are often ruined by hackers. It's best to just play with friends. It loads painfully slow (on my SSD no less), and starting heists, the best activity, can be difficult and time consuming to get people invited and successfully started. Same with the random jobs. Even if you get someone to join you, it loads painfully slow, and if they glitch out, you bomb back to Freemode with yet another long load time. Sadly it seems most people in Freemode are just running around death matching.
    I didn't buy it for the online, but I consider it a huge bonus. At its best, GTA V Online, doing heists with competent friends WITH MICROPHONES, can be a totally wild gaming experience. Unfortunately only about 10% of people seem to have microphones, and they are crucial for coordination. Not to mention the goobs who bail halfway through a heist and bomb you back to Freemode. At its worst, GTA V Online is still somewhat entertaining; driving around and shooting at people and ramming them.

    Despite some people having problems (which is inevitable on PC as everybody has different rigs on different operating systems), Rockstar have been very quick to fix any bugs that managed to slip through on release. This is a beautiful game, and the fact that PC gamers get the added bonus of a movie maker mode is a really tasty bonus that Rockstar did not have to throw in.

    It was a 10/10

    It was a 10/10 game on it's original release on the 360, and I'm grateful that they took the time to work on improving the game to make the most of PC hardware. It has the best physics engine of any game I've played, there is so much attention to detail in the city, and the AI pedestrians really make the place feel alive. Stellar voice acting and writing (if a little puerile, but that's part of the charm). My only complaint is the loading times between multiplayer jobs, but the single player alone warrants 10.10, it seems silly to mark something down for having extra features.

    The most beautiful thing about GTA V is that YOU WANT TO LIVE IN IT!
    All game's aspects made at the ULTIMATE LEVEL (except character development, but who cares?)

    Rockstar once again proved us that they are real "rock-stars" of game industry. You just have to buy it.

    Preordered on Steam, no launch issues, I was playing right away when the game activated. What a great port, luckily the Rockstar guys learned their lesson from the catastrophic GTA IV launch. The performance is really good, the game looks insane on highest settings and 1080, and I'm really enjoying the story. Really worth the wait.

    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 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!

    Polished, beautiful, funny and just plain fun, GTA V rekindled the love I felt for the franchise when I played San Andreas. I found the player characters diverse, comical and endearing. Switching between them kept the experience fresh and engaging.

    This is the first game that really tested my rig, though I still managed to stay north of 60 fps with nearly all settings maxed. Graphically
    Polished, beautiful, funny and just plain fun, GTA V rekindled the love I felt for the franchise when I played San Andreas. I found the player characters diverse, comical and endearing. Switching between them kept the experience fresh and engaging.

    This is the first game that really tested my rig, though I still managed to stay north of 60 fps with nearly all settings maxed. Graphically GTA V dropped my jaw and gave me several "The future is now!" moments. Even my artist wife would stop to gawk and admire what was on screen.

    A great balance between mostly linear plot and sandbox rampage, I found driving and combat to be smooth with the right amount of challenge. My one game-play gripe is the clumsy-feeling pedestrian experience, where it is all to easy to accidentally jump face first into a wall that I intended to scale.

    I found the plot to be engrossing through the final scene, and can see myself retreading the story in a month or two. I originally was going to wait for the first price drop to purchase, but a couple videos of gameplay graphics at 1080p was enough to persuade my wallet to open. I have no regrets.

    I'm not sure if I can say that GTA V is my favorite game of all time, but I think its the best game I've ever played. Would score it as a 97 if I could, so rounding up to a 10.

    Then if you are feeling up to it, you can even change your make up, hair style, literally everything.
    The races are fully customizable, to however you want them, weather, cops, own vehicles or basic vehicles.

    There are events , like the $10,000,000 challenge if you complete all heists with the same team without dying once, you all receive $10,000,000.

    Some of the downsides include connectivity issues, there is a lot of loading, and sometimes you can load for 5 minutes and then get disconnected, or if you attempt to join a heist, and it's full, you have to wait a few minutes of loading. therefor, I say do your best to not mess up the mission when you are in one, because if you mess up, means more loading time, and it gets annoying.

    Also hackers, Rockstar seems to be on the ball with banning them, but there is a lot of them, only yesterday a guy was blowing things up, and everything he blew up, turned into money bags, was quite funny, but the day before, someone got angry at me and repeatedly killed me, I tried to kill her, but I did 0 damage, she even ran towards me unarmed as I shot her, and nothing happened, and she killed me with her fists, it was funny, but at the same time, very unfair.

    Grand Theft Auto V was already considered one of the best video games of all time, but on a technical level this is in my opinion the absolute masterpiece in video game history. Its 60FPS and 4K support makes it miles ahead of the PS4/X1 versions. If you have a good enough PC rig then really do get it for the 60fps and 4k. A true masterpiece

    Driving is better than the old one and there is much more depth in the missions. Object interaction is pretty awesome as is the world detail. I should note that I now have an Xbox controller I use for driving and mouse/keyboard when I need to shoot.

    Optimisation is fairly good too they spent some time polishing it for PC which is nice to see. 90% smooth performance on an i5 with an ageing 2gb 7870. Only minor downside is the 60gb download since my DSL is just average so it took a while to get it down, plus good thing I just upgraded to a bigger drive.

    Overall it's a contender for best game of the year no doubt.

There were a few hiccups that I had to Google a fix for, but I'm not reviewing Rockstar's servers or Social Club, I'm reviewing the game. Play for just a few minutes, and you'll realize how much potential GTAV has.

    With huge content and top notch optimization, GTA V is the best game on PC atm! The graphics looks great, there are a s#it load of graphical options, to customize the graphics for your liking! The story is average, but long. Only negative in the game is that R* fighting against mods, latest patch disabled them all.

The game is great, from its story to its online, it brings excellence. Heists and all the DLCs that have been released for GTA V are available right out of the box, and are as good as expected. My only gripe with the PC version of GTA V is that the mouse & keyboard controls are not the best, although this can be fixed with custom configuration in the options menu, I do emphasize that this game is more relaxed and fun with a controller.

    So now you just need to multiply it by 10 and that is GTA V on Pc.
    Any one who thinks this game is bad, either has a bad PC or he has a problem with Rockstar!

    There is not one single developer left that cares about the gamers...ok, not one except for the people from Rockstar studios.

    Respect to every single person that was involved in creating this unique and excellent MASTERPIECE.

    I was just thinking today...if they would say to give them more money so they can create another title that is this good - I would give it to them.

    And I am certain I will NEVER preorder any single game after the experience with Ubisoft, EA...and those other companies.

    Can't remember a single game in the last few years that worked flawlessly on day 1.

    Did not encounter single bug so far, 33% into the game.

    Graphics out of this world.

    Optimization insane.

    Audio - great and YES, now I remembered there is a issue - 5,1 sound not working properly. Positional audio is great but no sound coming to subwoofer. I play in stereo now.

    Gameplay - GTA fans know what to expect.

    Controls - fluid and easy to learn.

GTA Online allows up to 30 players and doesn't lag at all (if the players are in the same part of the world, still not that laggy). GTA V is a must buy and everyone with a decent PC should get it. The graphics and overall gameplay is massively upgraded from the consoles including animations, textures, particles, depth of field, motion blur, shadows, reflections, cars and pedestrian density and animals, just to name a few. The game also feels supersmooth in 60 fps compared to the console fps at 30 fps. Expand

I feel blessed. in technical view, you don't feel like your playing a game from last gen. It's completely polished and feels like it's been built from the scratch for PC. The game is fluid and I didn't face any problem despite my modest hardware. Controlls are responsive and gameplay is really fun and engaging. The whole Los Santos and Blaine County look absolutely gorgeous. The story and the characters are really compelling and I fell in love with every aspect within the first few minutes. GTA V is an actual parody of the current state of the world with a focus on the U.S. and how corrupt the authorities are. I disagree with those who say it is sexist or racist or transphobic or homophobic. It deals with such issues in one of the greatest ways I have seen in a game and I'm a gaymer myself. The criticism of Hollywood and celebrity culture that is plaguing the world these days was really apropos. Every dialog had a meaning and was important to the plot. The satirical humor was mind-blowing. Grand Theft Auto 5 is a true masterpiece and a must-have for any gamer. That's why I'm giving it a perfect 10/10 score. Expand

    I'm truly feeling sorry for the folks that didn't/couldn't buy this game on Steam. I read the reviews and their experience sounds painful. I really hope Rock-Star is gonna iron out all those bugs quickly so everyone can enjoy this great game the same way.

    I was lucky and got the game through Steam. Other then the 14h download on launch day I don't have anything to complain about. It's running perfectly fine on my five year old i7 920 quad core with a two year old GTX 770 and 8GB Ram. Got almost everything on High (used Geforce Experience to automatically set the right options). About 20h in now and also none of the crashes others reported.

    The game looks absolutely gorgeous. There's so much detail around every corner. After the first Heist I spend easily two hours just walking around in 1st person admiring all the little details Los Santos has to offer and another hour taking Chop the Dog for walks or just randomly running into pedestrians until they start attacking me and then watch Chop bite their heads off. The Tennis mini game is not half bad either if you like Tennis. You can even use your phone to call a Blimp and then go sightseeing from the air.

    The missions are.. well they are original GTA. Really well written dialogue good mission design, a lot more fun than GTA IV for sure. To me they are on the same level as San Andreas and Vice City were. Over the top action and not as serious and dark as IV was (not counting the IV DLC, Lost&Damned and the other one with the gay guy, those were great too). Speaking of which, you meet some characters from the old games again in this game.

    Like I said I'm about 20h in now and the stats tell me I've completed 16% and did 17 of the 69 main missions. Then again I spend a lot of time just running around or riding a bike (they are as fun as they were in SA). There's just so much to see and I've only uncovered about half of the map so far. Although a lot of what's still missing is probably ocean or country side.

    The only thing I'm somehow having a problem with is the Cop's behaviour. For some reason you can't just outrun them by driving away in a fast car like in past games. You have to somehow get out of their range and then hide behind buildings preferably putting your head down (there's literally a button for putting your head down). It takes some getting used to and leads to strange situations where sometimes I can try to escape from them for minutes, driving half way across the map and they're still tailing me. And sometimes I just drive around one corner in a narrow road between two buildings and they've lost me.

    That being said I can easily overlook this one strange behaviour with everything else being as fun as it is. I'm heaving a great time playing the game and these past three days the reason for me to put down the controller always was the clock showing 2am.

The industry is full cheaply produced, unfinished and generally boring games. Some of them may be fun sometimes, but you can clearly see developers more and more caring about things like graphics instead of good stories or many details. GTA is - even though the graphics are great - the opposite. Never have i ever seen a game script so carefully written, with so many logical cohesions, details and great humour. Witty dialogues, a huge, open but yet fairly detailed world in which you can truly feel the passion and effort that was put into it. Nothing about this game resembles the current industry which is so great. Also, it's full of elaborate features and techniques which make the experience of Grand Theft Auto even more fun. Also, probably no developer except rockstar is able to kid american culture so well, and in a way that is not only relatable, but understandable. You clearly understand what is being teased, but yet you're not pelted with puerile and obvious jokes.

    Generally one of the greatest game experiences ever, and a true longtime-runner in my library, thus a solid 10!

    The world is huge, everything feels right, the physics, the animations, the graphics, the detail, the sounds.. Every little bit feels in the right place.

    The characters are quite unique and have their own story that the game tells you in a great way, the transictionbetween every character is flawless and innovative.

    The missions are extremely good, an easy 10, they're not rage inducing, they're extremely well designed, they barely have any flaws and the dialogue in missions is like it always was in GTA.. Amazing and mostly sarcastic funny.

    The story is probably the best in the franchise, with a decent ammount of choices and lot of explanation given so you don't miss any detail.

    The guns feel good, the world feels alive, the cars feel real, the NPC's feel alive and not for one second this game felt nothing less than a true masterpiece.. Easily the game of the century.

    An easy 10/10.. Probably one of my few 10/10.. Probably the first one since GTA San Andreas. (And that tells you something)

    About the PC Port.. Ye, it's simply quite amazing, the definite version of GTA V is on PC, either 60fps or 30fps, it won't matter.. The game is good both ways, it scales extremely well and has almost no issues. (Some small issues like some stuttering at the most) This game will also run in almost any PC, be it a cheap laptop or a old pc with a dual-core and a 9800gt or even a 5670.

    I played at 1080p on a 560ti.. You can easily achieve 60fps in a 560ti at 1080.. That's how well optimized the game is.. At medium settings btw.

The amount of detail on every single corner in this games simply blows every other game maker out of the water. Even a hall of famer like skyrim tends to look like a sterile alpha compared to rockstars world building. just stand at a crossing for a couple of minutes and watch this world being alive.

    Everything runs smooth as buttocks for me as I get constant 60fps on high settings. I tried to max everything and I run at an average of about 40 fps with frame drops, which I hate. The Nvidia driver probably did the job on optimizing the game for my 770m GPU. I expect to run this game maxed out on my desktop. I have no idea how this game runs on Radeon cards; but from reading other people's reviews, I think its not fully optimized, yet.
    Overall, this game is basically GTA V version 3.0 (1.0 Xbox, 2.0 Xbox One/PS4, 3.0 PC... etc). It has everything that has been released on consoles and brought to the PC.

    Yes, there are server problems, which I hated too. However, I just bite the bullet and let it download, slowly. Eventually, I got it to run. Although there are server problems, I haven't ran into any connection errors.

    To me, the game is optimized, so I have no idea why people are saying it isn't. Compared to Assassin's Creed Unity, this game is silk while ACU is sand paper.

    Please disregard people who is rating this game lower than a 3. Its because most of them are troll "reviews". Hey, you can't be successful without haters.

    Surprised by the low reviews. This is an UNBELIEVABLE game. Maybe even better than Portal 2. It's THAT good. Remember. This is my subjective opinion. You are entitled to yours. I previously said I was surprised by the low review. I am not saying they are wrong. So goes the Internet.

    I was not going to write a review but after seeing so many people rating this game with a zero only for not being able to download the patch on day one, which is by the way a reasonable issue that any game can have, I decided I would write one.

    First of all I would like to say that I managed to download the patch before the servers supposedly went down. When I got in the game it was a bit laggy at the beginning but that is because my PC is not amogst the strongest machines out there by far. The game has very in depth graphical settings so after tweaking some, it felt incredibly smooth. What surprised me was the fact that the game seems to be running smoother with vsync on which is not the case with most of the other games but then again it might be only me and my PC.

    The controls might feel a little bit wonky. Especially having the special abilities set to caps lock might get very annoying. So I would recommend looking in the key bindings and playing with the for a little bit till you find something that works for you. Or you can play with a gamepad.

    GTA V is a very well made port. Which is a nice change after GTA IV. The optimization is great. And although it still has some elements from the console version that might not feel too great, the gameplay is amazing. I would maybe make some small improvements the driving model. What I also like about the game is that they brought back some stuff that was lacking in GTA IV like car customization. That was one of the best things to do in San Andreas and I was really sad when I found out it was not going to be in GTA IV. They also made some really big improvements to the multiplayer which is a blast with friends. One more thing I would like to point out is the first person mode which completely changes the way the game is played and it feels a lot more immersive.

    I haven't gotten far enough in the story to be able to fully review it but so far it is pretty intriguing.

    With all that said if you are wondering whether or not to buy this game I would recommend that you do. without any doubts. It is well worth the money.

    Ignore all the idiots marking the game a 0 just because they had to download a patch. It looks fantastic and runs flawlessly. Brilliantly optimised for PC, unlike GTA IV. An absolute triumph, and one of the best games ever released on PC. Well done Rockstar on getting it right this time.

    Great optimization. Single 970 and I can play on Triple Screens (1080p each, never below 55fps, on settings that give visual similar to PS4/XB1)... or Single 1080p monitor at almost maxed settings. Well worth the wait.

    This game is awesome. Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC is the first version of Grand Theft Auto 5 I've played. That's one of the reasons I've been assigned to the review—I'm coming at it as an open-world action game released in 2015, not a long-awaited port of a game everybody rinsed clean a year ago.

    Will people stop reviewing a game based on petty launch bugs, if you cannot get into it yet, wait until you can, play the game, then review it.

    Games appear to be reviewed far too early which undermines the score of all user reviews. I refused to read any reviews until at least a month in, due to impatient morons. This game is easily a 9+ game but unfortunately the review status

    This game is easily a 9+ game but unfortunately the review status on here will never reach such status due to "off the cuff" negative reviews just venting in frustration.

    In my view, the game loaded first time. This is by far the best GTA game ever, very well optimised and fun to play. Don't be put off by the bad reviews!

    This game is absolutely amazing. I had it downloaded off steam and installed in about an hour and a half. I guess the 5gb release day patch was included in the steam version because I honestly don't recall downloading it. That aside, the game runs so well, it's incredible. I am running a 5760x1080p set up on dual 4gb GTX 770s, running everything on high-max with constant 60 fps.This game is absolutely amazing.

Considering how well the game looks, I'm surprised. The optimization was done so well. Driving in general is tons of fun, missions are hilarious and well thought out and the combat system is fantastic. The addition of first person mode is also a welcome treat.

    To the haters, time to upgrade your internet connection and start using steam.

    Now that that's out of the way, let's get on with the review. This is one of the most fun games I've played, and online is outstanding with a group of friends or even random people. The heists are a welcome change to the somewhat repetitive game modes/missions in Online. The graphics, if you can max them out or get them close to max, are jaw-droppingly gorgeous.

    If I had to point out a negative, there are some minor glitches in Online that I've noticed but that's to be expected. They'll patch it and everything will be fine as usual.

    Don't listen to the 0's, you're gonna enjoy the hell out of this game!!

    PC port wise the game runs excellent on my now 3 year old computer. I had half expected to be needing to upgrade for this title but Rockstar has done an amazing job getting the game to run smooth on a wide range of systems.

    The PC GTA V is hands down easily the best version with 60fps, 4k compatibility, technically the most sound, and with tons of flexibility and features that you simply do not get on the consoles.

    Rockstar is in a class almost exclusively of it's own. 10/10

    Respect, effort, and love. I applaud to you, Rockstar, for being a man(no sexism intended) and putting together this masterpiece of a game, Grand Theft Auto V.

    I don't care they took 1.5 years to make it to PC or delayed it for 2 month. It was well worth the wait, and I'm even glad I got a much better game than the console version thanks to that.

    I had some hiccups cracking open the game to play for the first 2 hours but that memory is long gone thanks to what was inside the game.

    In the sea of crappy AAA titles copy-pasted every year with gazillion DLCs to milk the gamers to death, this game shines like a diamond so I just HAD to make a review of it.

    GTA has been around since 1998 and a core franchise of Rockstar but there have been only 5 main titles yet, which says something.

    Thank you Rockstar, not just for the wonderful game, but for the respect you've shown to us. 11/10

    Technisch ist GTA5 auf dem PC hervorragend. kein anderes spiel hat eine so gute performance auf alten wie neues Systemen, mit diversen Einstellungen können selbst Alte Computer flüssig und ohne ruckeln oder anderem spielen. Auf Highend Rechnern geht es dann richtig ab. Die unglaubliche Sichtweite des Spiels giebt einem immer das Gefühl nur ein Winziger Teil in einer Grafisch sehr Schönen und Riesigen Welt zu sein.

    Der Online Modus ist Natlos, auch hier konnten die Entwickler ihr können demonstrieren, die Openworld funktioniert Lagfrei und selbst bei einem verbindungsabbruch zum Host geht das spiel Natlos aleine weiter, keine unnötigen "Verbindung unterbrochen" nachrichten oder dergleichen. Das Lobbysystem ist einfach und gut zu führen, lediglich die langen ladezeiten im Online Modus fallen mir störend auf, aber bei der Masse an Content nicht verfwunderlich.

    ich gebe GTA V definitv ein 10/10
    Dringene Kaufempfehlung für jeden Open World Spieler.
