Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created.
PC Master Race Release Update
It functions well, the few heists I've played are damn good, and I can only assume singleplayer is not much less interesting. After all this time... at least the game is what it ought to be for once.
I detonate this ratings bomb in the name of the PC Master Race, HD Textures, and SSAO! Down with the ******* at Rockstar who denies PC such greatness!
LET NONE SURVIVE OUR GLORIOUS WRATH! DOWN WITH THE HERETICS!
DETONATE MORE RATING BOMBS MY BROTHERS!
LONG LIVE THE PC MASTER RACE!
Stupid "PC Master Race Rating Bombs" are a bunch of ******** from day one.
But now to get that out of the way; the Review...
The game is fantastic and runs GREAT compared to GTA 4 when it was released and it deserved those rating bombs until they Finally patched it. This game however, DOES NOT.
-Fantastic Graphics and environment- Great Textures, and other important graphical details (lighting, modules, etc.) well designed and beautiful landscape. Big and fun cities to drive and explore. Wonderful.
-Fantastic Performance- On all Max Graphics, 60 FPS constant, little to no lag, CPU and GPU performance does not have to crank at all to run the game.
-GTA Online Servers are not as **** at launch compared to the console release. Thank you.
-Gameplay- Single Player; Uber awesome- it's just wow, great characters, fun story and side quests; a living city. Wonderful.
-Gameplay- Multiplayer: Uber Uber Awesome-
+I love it. Driving around with your friends, killing poor innocent players that are new to the game (like myself) that are at a low level while my friends are like level 80+. (as they played the hell out of the console version and transferred their character, lol.)
+The jobs are super fun, but are more fun with friends.
+The Heists; well designed, fun with four people, can VERY challenging, but awesome payout and really fun with good teamwork.
+Housing and Garages; Many to choose from around town, you can buy them, invite friends into them, most if not all have garages, can store a Max for the most expensive 10 vehicles. Fun to mess around and get "high" in-game with your friends in your apartment.
+Vehicles; Planes and Cars- they are awesome, easy to drive, look wonderful, able to have much variety and steal most cars, put them in your garage! They become yours for essentially forever! (if you don't blow those up) Vehicles you buy are more or less permanent with the insurance ability.
+Playing with friends in Free-mode: Drive around the vast city, encounter other players almost at random (and have huge fire-fights) to either kill each other or play together to control the server!
-Only 32 Players in one server? (What?)
-Server connection issues; They are not as bad as release on Console, but wow, I have had some issues myself and so have my friends when it comes to staying connected with the server during Free mode or heists. (it sucks even more when doing a Heist and your friend disconnects)
-Social Club: Damn it game devs, you got to stop it with this ********. Uplay, Battlelog and now this? AGAIN? It can be a hassle, its was terrible in GTA4 and thankfully its much improved, but is something that is forced on to the player. Why not just integrate steam's community system? The invite system is much better, the crews could be related to steam groups and it would provide us no need to create a external account to just play the damn games online ability.
I honestly don't hate it as much as its not to bad in this GTA; but this sets an example for other devs. It just provides another roadblock in playing the damn game.
I still give this game a 10 out of 10 as the cons are not a serious issue in the major factor to the games ability to be played or enjoyed. 32 players is suitable, but I wish there were more, server connection issues are almost resolved at this point and social club is honestly not that bad for someone who has used it before.
Its a fantastic game and is totally worth the 50-60 dollars on steam. The pre-order bonus was really nice, with the 1,000,000 dollars you get for Franklin in the single player and your GTA Online character. Its a big helping boost without being detrimental.
Its so fun to play with friends or by yourself. GET IT.
I loved Grand Theft Auto V. It was a really fun game with amazing gameplay.
Honestly, I've been excited for GTA V ever since the day they released the FIRST trailer. Most hardcore GTA fans like me should remember the countdown Rockstar set up at their website. We all were flooded with anticipation at that time. And I WAS one of the people who saw the trailer FIRST among all the other people. I even saw the Michael/Trevor/Franklin trailers and I considered it amazing.
But then it's just that GTA V has the most painfully bad fanbase a game can ever have. The GTA Fanbase was actually going really good until the dumbasses dominated the fanbase and continuously saying "OMG GTA V IS DA BEST" "WATCHDOGS SHUD GO SUK A DIK" or "SAINT ROWS 4 IS SHET". They never learn from other games.
But GTA V is just so beautiful. The landscapes and interiors are well made, but the character detail is weird (sorry Rockstar). But the gameplay was sure fun as hell. I was glad that Rockstar enhanced the Weapon Inventory system and now you can carry as much guns as you can. And they fixed a lot of stuff from before.
GTA V is a great game, and it will remain a great game.
It deserves a BADASS 12/10.
