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.

También fue muy interesante la novedad de los tres personajes en el modo historia. Un GTA único qu eno decepcionará a nadie, ni siquiera a los amantes de San Andreas. La versión de PC mejora mucho con los mods y FiveM, cliente para servidores modeados, y su más atractivo, el roleplay. Expand

    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 playerPolished, 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.

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.

    Grand Theft Auto 5 is a good game, however it is more of the same. Rockstar did little to change the genre that it created with Grant TheftGrand Theft Auto 5 is a good game, however it is more of the same. Rockstar did little to change the genre that it created with Grant Theft Auto 3. GTA V is essentially a conglomeration of everything that came before it. The story and characters (Trevor, Franklin, and Michael) are compelling and interesting. The graphics are astounding on the PC. The gameplay is the same as all of its predecessors, which is exciting and fun.

    I feel like Rockstar could have done a little more innovation. Rockstar is a company capable of producing high quality, unique games. GTA V was a rehash of the company's old efforts in new packaging. The only difference in GTA V is the ability to play from 3 different main characters. There really is no "main" character, which is not a bad thing.

    All in all, GTA V is a good game with not very unique gameplay. It's more of the same that Rockstar has produced before, but it's still fun and offers many moments of enjoyment.

    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.
