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.

    It is the best GTA on the best possible plattform.

    Way way better port then part 4. Adding first person to GTA is pure brilliance. Getting knocked off your bike jumping red lights never ever get's old in first person.

    For the game itself: it's a GTA. You do GTA things, you meet GTA characters. Wether or not you mind the story depends on what entertains you. It's more then enough though to contextualize the action. The sheer unmachted brilliance is Los Santos though. 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.

    As usual the soundtrack alone is a reason to buy the game. heard the online part is a lot of fun as well.

    just get it.

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.

    How can somebody even like this? It is terrible, unpolished, unoptimized and it deserves to be put down not praised.... Geforce driversHow can somebody even like this? It is terrible, unpolished, unoptimized and it deserves to be put down not praised.... Geforce drivers up-to-date on GTX 970, does not matter if it is installed on a HDD or SSD i see no difference - takes 5-10 to load into a singleplayer, then you have to choose join friends which takes about 10 mins to load up, then fails to connect to session and disconnects you from online services. How dumb do developers have to be, to release such a bad game? Finding a mission and actually starting it also takes some time... Loads of cheaters giving you money (and you can be banned for it - they cannot). Get a grip Rockstar games. Expand
