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.

I really enjoy the story even though I've played the game on Potato Station 3. Everyone should get into that story because it's funny, well written and the whole San Andreas looks great! Expand

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.

    Despite all these "polishing" and bunch of delays, all we got was a console ported version with no difference i graphics, nor gameplay. YetDespite all these "polishing" and bunch of delays, all we got was a console ported version with no difference i graphics, nor gameplay. Yet it confuses me that GTA V has again failed to make its users understand what the hell was their delays for. Lots of bugs and issues, somewhat good but not expected from a should-have-taken-weeks-with-delays game.Overall I am damn disappointed. Expand

After rejoining I amI have played this game for 2 hours and the moment I go online some cheater teleports me to him and makes my PC crash. After rejoining I am forced to leave passive mode for the introduction missions. The moment I try to leave and have to wait for the cooldown to end, a bunch of players come and keep killing me again and again for no apparant reason. I feel no desire to play this game again in my life. Expand
