Amidst this madness, three unique criminals plan their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street-level hustler in search of opportunities for serious money; Michael, an ex-con whose "retirement" is a less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent dude driven by the chance for a quick high and the next big score. Nearly out of options, the crew risks it all in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life - one way or the other. Expand

    Grand Theft Auto V for new-gen is without a doubt the best way to experience one of the biggest releases of the last half decade.

    The best game on PS3 is now the best thing on PS4. A loving, comprehensive remaster of such quality, it's damn near as essential as oxygen. But it. Yesterday. [Jan 2015, p.91]

    I can’t stress just how much fun it is to experience Grand Theft Auto V again from a new perspective. The impact it has on the series is huge, but is somewhat muted from it debuting in a re-release and not a new entry in the series. I went into this review expecting to play the same game again, and I did, but Rockstar made it feel new.
  5. If you didn't play GTA V on PS3/Xbox 360, don't think, just play it. If you have played GTA V on PS3/Xbox 360, again don't think, just play it. Because San Andreas calls all of us once again.

    Grand Theft Auto V on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is still a better game than most of the other games released on the new consoles so far. A must play for newcomers, and a great reason to return to Los Santos for veterans.

    It’s funny, well written, good looking, has great music and will keep you busy for months. It is an essential purchase for those who haven’t played it before and a huge recommendation for those who have.

    Rockstar have done it...again! GTA V has endless amounts of content to access and endless amounts of great fun to be had with. The open worldRockstar have done it...again! GTA V has endless amounts of content to access and endless amounts of great fun to be had with. The open world is the best one yet with a vast array of things to see ranging from the streets of Vinewood to the crime ridden streets of Strawberry to the beautifully detailed terrain in the countryside and the enormous mountains. The characters and story are great, although not entirely the best of the series. GTA online is one of the best multiplayer experiences available with hundreds of jobs, death matches, races and missions to participate in with your friends. An amazing package of greatness once again from Rockstar Games. Expand

    The graphics are amazing. The open world is really living. Sometimes you will find yourself driving in highway through the desert listening toThe graphics are amazing. The open world is really living. Sometimes you will find yourself driving in highway through the desert listening to your favorite radio station, chasing UFOS, customizing your favorite car, enjoying a private dance in a nightclub, killing enemies or just might happen to be in a beach at night and met a cool guy playing some beautiful chords with his guitar. Its really big game.

    Graphics, sound and presentation are superb.

    The story mode starts really well, but gets repetitive after a while. Pace is a problem, since there are so many different plots, and the game don't let you choose where you will focus your attention. Its not easy to get involved in what is going on.

    Some of the games controls are also problematic, specially when we talk about airplanes and helicopters, sometimes you will spend a good amount of time trying to not crash your plane while landing. Gun fights rely heavily on auto aim.

    Online mode is pointless and is a stripped down version of the whole thing.

    Despite pace problems with the main story, Trevor, Franklin and Michael are easily one of the most remarkable characters ever seen in a video game, even if you don't like some of them.

    Rockstar games also deserves credits for creating truly new experience on PS4. The new graphics are more than just better textures. Its unbelievable how detailed this world is. PS4 is yet to see a better looking game.

    A classic.

    Had this on PS3 and decided to re-purchase for PS4. Mostly happy that I did. If you waited for new gen console releases, it's a must buy. IfHad this on PS3 and decided to re-purchase for PS4. Mostly happy that I did. If you waited for new gen console releases, it's a must buy. If you had/have it on previous gen consoles, then you might want to give it a miss. The visuals are improved but not so far improved from the excellent PS3 visuals that it is outstanding.

    The game itself though is outstanding.

    I also just want to say I'm sick of false reviewers who did not buy this edition of the game but come on throwing 0's 1s and 2s because they feel they have a right to throw mud at something. Useless people who probably get grumpy when the sun shines.
