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.

This is by far the best GTA game I've played since San Andreas. There's just nothing negative at all to say about GTA V, really!

    The story is downright epic (yes, I play through the story in GTA) and Rockstar pays so much attention to the small details it's amazing! The graphics are even further improved from the PS3 version and the first person mode is very well done. Having the DLC's pre-installed on it is great too (since my internet is too slow to play/update online), and it's just overall an even more impressive experience.

    The Rockstar Editor (create your own movies using the game engine) is absolutely stunning and is by far the best editor of any kind I have ever seen in a game! I could go on and on about how great this game is, but I want to keep this review to the point.

    I would *highly* recommend Grand Theft Auto V to any gamer. It doesn't matter what kind of game you are into, GTAV excels in every way possible and I think any prospective buyers will find hours upon hours of excitement in this game!

    Grand Theft Auto V is a really good game, an interesting story and characters, fun open world and funny dialog. I like how grown up this gameGrand Theft Auto V is a really good game, an interesting story and characters, fun open world and funny dialog. I like how grown up this game is and how its not afraid to be controversial, but after a while it does become stale and boring but that's probably because iv'e been playing it since it was released on the PS3 in September 2013. Overall its a ton of fun. Expand
