From the Manufacturer

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 own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a former street gangster, now 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.

Developed by series creators Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V will be available worldwide on September 17th for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Having played a few previous GTA 3 and GTA Vice City, I can say that I had never been impressed with Grand Theft Auto. Often, the open world would leave me bored as I would not be drawn into the story enough to keep moving forward. Combined with the time necessary to travel, repetitiveness of the missions, I felt as though I would never play open world games again.

After much time though, I saw the trailer for Grand Theft Auto V. The trailer looked stunning featuring planes, scuba diving, and multiple playable characters. After reading about the improvements Rockstar, the developer, has made in other games (Red Dead Redemption, Midnight Club, and LA Noir) I knew that it would be unfair to write this off as "just another GTA". Upon putting in the disc (PS3), you are greeted with an 8GB installation. This took about 15 minutes on my PS3 Slim, your mileage may vary though. The game immediately begins with the characters in a fantastic tutorial that not only introduces some characters, but also gets you intrigued by the plot early. The tutorial is interesting and fun, though the tutorial text in the upper left of the screen was hard to read on my screen (1080i on a 42" Plasma TV). This was easily supplemented / fixed by the print manual or the iOS "GTA Manual" application but did lead to an unnecessary death rather early in the game.

Upon playing this, you immediately will notice that many of the controls have been refined in comparison to previous GTA games. The shooting feels much tighter (it's easier to aim clearly and quickly, switching weapons is simple and doesn't get in the way), the driving is better (cars and trucks feel as though they drive like the type of car they are.

Rockstar knows good games, and the Grand Theft Auto series just keeps getting better and better. The time and effort they put into GTAV to make a great game shows right from the opening scene. When you start playing, it feels less like a regular video game and more like an intricate story filled with action, comedic situations, and lots of real-world references and tongue-in-cheek parodies that all come together for a pretty entertaining and unforgettable story.

Gameplay is similar to the previous GTA titles, but one improvement I noticed was that the driving got a little easier. The driving in GTA4 was pretty twitchy and arcade-like, but in GTAV it's a lot smoother. Controls aren't difficult to master, and just when you think you might forget what button you need to push, an on screen button prompt/reminder keeps you motoring along without hesitation.

Graphics have also improved over the last GTA game. Granted, the facial renders, the character animation, and the whole game world itself does not try to look as realistic as possible, but the game still looks really, really good. The clouds in the sky move as they do in real life - something that when you're playing the missions you're likely to overlook - but it's there. The transitions from day to night and back look and feel like it would in real life - with not just the amount of people and vehicles on the road changing with the time of day, but also the type of people and vehicles change as well. The "simulation" part of the game is very accurate, and if you were to stop playing missions for a few minutes just to take a look around, you'll realize it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Was worried September 23, 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Special Edition|Verified Purchase
First off, this is NOT a game for anyone under 18! Honestly, I can be pretty crude myself, and this game was so shocking and so off-color at first I almost quit playing it. I had to remind myself that this game's intent is to shock and push the envelope, so I continued on and I am so glad I did. Once you get past the first two hours of the "shock" value, the story gets very good, the missions are fun, and even the crudeness dies down. (Mind you there are still parts that will make you cringe, however I think you need to be in the mindset that this game is trying to push your buttons (sorry for the pun). Once I got into the game, i played for 3 days, 10 hours straight and I am only 50% complete at this time. The game is HUGE, and you can always find something to do. I cannot warn you enough to not buy for your kids, even if they are mature; this is hard to take in even as an adult. Make sure you play where no one can hear you as if they don’t know the content of the story, they will think you lost your mind or get offended.
If your an adult gamer, and have an open mind, you will love this game.
