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.

    A very good game! I didn't have the option of downloading it until I got home from vacation, so I missed out on any server overload issuesA very good game! I didn't have the option of downloading it until I got home from vacation, so I missed out on any server overload issues some users have mentioned. For me the game has run flawlessly, on my aging gaming rig. I run a i7 930@3GHz, 6gig ram, and a Radeon 7970 3GB card. Because of space restrictions I couldn't fit it on any of my SSD's, so this installed on my 750gb, 4 year old school Samsung drive.

    I am frankly quite astonished that the game runs perfectly smooth, with everything maxed out. It looks really pretty, and quite honestly much better than any console version I have seen.

    There was a small issue with the game crashing at one certain part of the map, but since I am not a moron, I understood this had to do with a corruption issue of one of the *.rpf files. I verified my game cache through steam, and it found two files which needed to be reacquired. After this, the game has run flawlessly.

    My gaming experience has been wonderful, and I really enjoyed the story. Now what I have left to do, is larking about, causing havoc. :-D

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.

    By GTA standards, the fifth entry has by far the WORST plotline. R* tried to incorporate 3 protagonists into the game keeping the same amountBy GTA standards, the fifth entry has by far the WORST plotline. R* tried to incorporate 3 protagonists into the game keeping the same amount of gameplay time as in previous GTA games, due to which the characters barely got the time to develop. Franklin's story started out in a great way that reminded me of GTA San Andreas but all fell apart when he met Michael. Rather than creating his unique personality, he became a more submissive character serving Michael. R* reserved all the over the top moments with Trevor , who itself is a psychopath and is the most annoying character. The bank heists were fun but again it didnt provide enough options to plan. Lamar was the most interesting character besides the protagonists, and his missions with Franklin was very well designed. Unfortunately, after a few missions he is thrown out of the story. And most importantly, there is NO proper antagonist in the game! The Stangers and Freaks missions were good but they werent great either. Expand

    Its overall really fun, the non online experience is lacking and its way better online; IF you join the right people; IE people who don'tIts overall really fun, the non online experience is lacking and its way better online; IF you join the right people; IE people who don't drive around and kill. If you're new you really have to work to get ANY money and get any good guns or upgrades. The updates are ok, but online seems to lose its novelty in the first couple of weeks unless you have friends. otherwise its just you doing random game matches with people who either rage quit, are over powered for your level, or are afk/afc, and or people just there to rank up as fast as possible. If you're not in a match you're just traveling around the world which as i stated before loses its novelty after awhile as its just filled with overpowered idiots just going around killing low players, or empty lobbies. It may seem like I hate it, but it is fun. Not as good as san andreas as it feels like there's less, but its still has the grand theft auto replay ability. IE shooting cops, flying planes, robbing stores, killing hookers, and now you can do it with friends. Expand
