  • Summary: Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their ownLos Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.

    The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world ever created, Grand Theft Auto V blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game's three lead characters, playing all sides of the game's interwoven story.

    All the classic hallmarks of the groundbreaking series return, including incredible attention to detail and Grand Theft Auto's darkly humorous take on modern culture, alongside a brand new and ambitious approach to open world multiplayer.

    GTA 5 is still a masterpiece. The open world is fantastic, the presentation is brilliant, the characters are well-written and the varied gameplay is still a lot of fun. Thanks to the technical improvements of the remastered version for PS5 the game still feels fresh and the gameplay is even better because of up to 60 fps in the two performance modes.

    With this third release on PS5 and Xbox Series, Grand Theft Auto V has never looked so good on consoles. 4K resolution, framerate at 60 frames per second, Ray-Tracing... This port effectively uses the technical capacities of next-gen consoles to offer the most pleasant rendering possible, in particular with greatly reduced loading times. Beyond that, GTA V remains what is, namely an incredible open-world filled with activities, but which dates from 2013 and which therefore shows the number of years on certain points such as facial animations. But more than the single-player mode, it's above all GTA Online that stands out as a winner from this arrival on PS5 and Xbox Series with the addition of a tutorial for new players, exclusive content and all the game's graphic and technical improvements. based. A port which is therefore intended for players of the online mode rather than those who finished the adventure of Michael, Franklin and Trevor years ago, for lack of major novelties.

    GTA V is the high-water mark for the developer as a whole. Playing it feels almost as new and refreshing on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 as it did when playing it on the console’s grandparents. The upgrades are gorgeous, the city is alive, and this game is still fantastic.

    Picking up this latest installment of GTA 5 can only mean you either haven’t played the game yet or want to start it over on a faster, more powerful console. Either choice is fine and means you will be in for a real treat as this is the definitive way to experience its 30-some hour story by far. GTA 5’s graphical improvements and even current gen features like haptic controls somewhat update the game to today’s standards, but it does show its age and makes the case that this should be the last time it gets released again.

    The faster loading times and graphical bumps still make this a good-looking game, despite the age of the assets. The solo campaign still has some allure, and the online component has proven its staying power. If you've already played the campaign to death, then you might be tempted to grab this because of the ridiculously low, temporary intro price. If you're an avid GTA Online player, then you may be on the fence given the segregation of online populations. This version means that the wait for GTA6 is going to be painfully long, but what's here is solid enough to tide one over until that finally arrives.

    With the next-gen version Rockstar has brought us the ultimate version of Grand Theft Auto 5. The graphics have been improved a lot, the loading times are much faster and the PS5-version even has a couple of features for the DualSense controller. The question, however, is whether you want to replay the same adventure again, as there is no new content, nor any improvements or additions to the gameplay. A version purely made for newcomers or true fans of GTA 5.

    GTA 5's enhanced next-gen port is definitely the best way to experience the game, and it's still every bit the enjoyable experience it was in 2013. However, with almost a decade having passed since then, Los Santos has started to show its age. GTA 5 lacks the detail or cinematic presentation of Rockstar's own Red Dead Redemption 2. Animations look less fluid, melee combat feels antiquated, and gunplay - even with the addition of haptic feedback on the PlayStation 5's DualSense controller - lacks weight. RDR2 is still without its own next-gen upgrade, while Red Dead Online continues to languish without new content. Together with the official confirmation that GTA 6 is in development, this new port feels like a step backward when Rockstar should be looking to the future. It's still a great way to play Grand Theft Auto 5, but even with the visual improvements and new multiplayer content, it feels less like a necessary return, and more like an aimless jaunt.

    Okay this review bombing is just pathetic at this point. Yeah they didn't add insane amount of new features. Sure they could have done more.Okay this review bombing is just pathetic at this point. Yeah they didn't add insane amount of new features. Sure they could have done more. BUT. This is still GTA 5. One of the best, most innovative open world games of all time. It's still this same amazing game and for consoles 60fps patch is great.

    Overall, reading these comments it has become very clear that lost of people here claiming that this release isn't as good as it should be, are actually GTA haters in general. They never liked this game. So i think this kind of review bombing is actually very bad, because it attracts lots of people who want to hate this game no matter what.

    It's still more fun, more polished, more innovative and just overall more professionally made than some new open world games like Cyberpunk2077 or Elden Ring.

    If you have never played GTA 5, i'm highly recommending it, it's phenomenal, even in 2022.

    What is there to say. It’s grand theft auto 5 again. The graphics are quite something. But other than that it’s the same old same old.

    GTA 5 on PS5 is a laughing stock!! I've never seen such a trashy attempt at deceiving since Cyberpunk 2077.. First of all.. It is simply a PS4GTA 5 on PS5 is a laughing stock!! I've never seen such a trashy attempt at deceiving since Cyberpunk 2077.. First of all.. It is simply a PS4 port that has higher frame rates and (VERY poor) haptic feedback support.. Thats it ..

    It brings nothing new that we havent already seen on PS4... Its a joke... Why it was delayed is anybody's guess... But don't support game companies who lie and produce trash or repeat content..

    Mais uma vez é lançado um game capado e a única diferença nos consoles novos é a taxa de atualização em 60 hz
