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.

    Honestly, this is pretty much the game to end all games, until the next installment comes out at least. As a combined single & multiplayerHonestly, this is pretty much the game to end all games, until the next installment comes out at least. As a combined single & multiplayer experience, this is the best game ever made, and I can't imagine how anyone other than the puritanical or biased couple think otherwise.

    I still haven't heard one good argument against this game being the best of all time.

    This is complete and fulfilling as video games get, unless you're looking for a tearjerker ending.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. GTA games seem to get a 90+% review score by default, but what has really changed within the franchise since GTA3 came out on the PS2? The core gameplay (although much more refined in later versions) is very much the same as ever. This is the main problem with GTA these days. Apart from the odd spike (in gameplay) it suffers from being far to familiar in the gameplay department. Drive from dot to dot in order to advance story. Repeat. Great production but time for Rockstar to stop repeatedly polishing the franchise before it becomes a turd. Expand
