    It’s just a great game tying to be even better. In some cases it works, in other cases it doesn’t. But, ultimately, if the idea of playing a superior version of one of the best games of all time appeals to you (and why wouldn’t it?) then this is a more than worthy excuse for a double-dip.

    It doesn't matter if it's your first time visiting Los Santos or if you're thinking of booking a return flight, we give GTA V our highest recommendation. This is simply a marvelous game.

    So good that it almost seems deceitful: like a CG trailer of what the highest level of fun might look like. After 17 years, it's incredible that the series still has such power to astound and excite.

    Grand Theft Auto 5 on the new platforms is a great comeback for the already impressive game. The first-person view mode, the enhanced visuals, and the many different smaller alterations transform the game into an even better experience. However, lingering problems with the gameplay and a few visual issues keep it from achieving perfection.

    Rockstar did not have to try hard – GTA V would sell on new consoles even it was the same game as before. It’s hard to underestimate both their ambition and effort to make their latest offering something more than a simple reissue. The new first person view really changes the gameplay and alone is worth your money. [01/2015, p.36]

    The real draw to return to fold, or jump in for the first time if you missed out on GTA V over the course of the last year, lies in the updated graphical prowess current-gen systems hold. Most significantly, the draw distance in this updated version is absolutely outstanding.

    This is more than a “definitive edition”. With all additions and improved visuals that didn’t leave a stone unturned even frequent visitors of past-gens Los Santos will find something that will make their return trip worthwhile. And if you didn’t play it yet: Welcome to open-world heaven.

The best GTA now enhanced by the Xbox One is a delight to play. Given that the Original GTAV was close to a 10/10 imo, this version just finalises any doubts in my mind.

    I am very surprised that upon playing 6+ Hours of the game already the framerate was indeed very smooth. Great job by Rockstar, their game developers obviously know how to code video games before release unlike cough cough UBIFAIL.

    Coming from playing ACU last week to this was a real pleasure and I’m glad some game developers still know how to optimize video games.

    Thanks for a great game Rockstar.

    The xbox One version of this game is essentially the Xbox 360 version scaled-up with some touch ups and improvements, For someone to buy thisThe xbox One version of this game is essentially the Xbox 360 version scaled-up with some touch ups and improvements, For someone to buy this game for the first time I definitely reccomend purchasing it, but if you have bought it before on a previous gen you're not missing out on too much.
    The online seems to have some issues with connectivity, and overall game play, it is pretty much a sad micro transaction grab online.

    If you're buying it for the first time, a definite 10, but if you're considering buying again on xbox one, I would give it a 8/10 recommendation, as there was not enough added to make it really worth 60$.

    I feel as if Rockstar could have done a lot more in terms of gameplay.

    A little over hyped to say the least, but still an amazing overall game. Huge, wide and diverse map as you make your way through the GTA worldA little over hyped to say the least, but still an amazing overall game. Huge, wide and diverse map as you make your way through the GTA world surrounding you. Great detail in nature and cars, but Rocksteady fails to deliver its long promised heists mode that many people purchased the game for in the first place. Story is solid, but gameplay lacks certain things to make this game near to perfection. With that still said, it is a major upgrade from the last game in the GTA series. Expand

    everything is GROSSLY priced in their in game economy in favor of the m0rons that buy shark cards and induce this kind of lame gaming. Ifeverything is GROSSLY priced in their in game economy in favor of the m0rons that buy shark cards and induce this kind of lame gaming. If there weren't shark cards I'm sure everything in game (cars,planes,weapons,etc) would be priced reasonably and obtainable without either having to grind until your fingers fall off or you fork over $100 usd for 5 digital vehicles. As it stands they remove cool concepts from development (casino) and repeatedly nerf the best ways gamers use to obtain in game currency. This game is trash, rockstar is trash, F red dead redemption 2 (and I wanted to check that out and may still USED off EBAY so they do not get anymore money directly from me). Rockstar makes me want the gaming industry to crash and burn...die you greedy ********! Expand
