Warning, great game but with cautions.,
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto V - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
TO ALL PARENTS!!!. Please be forewarned. Please consider this game the same way you would an extremely violent and sexual R rated movie. I wouldn't recommend allowing anyone under the age of 17 or 18 to get this game. If you would allow your kid to go into a strip bar (yes, they have strip bars in this game that has everything that goes along with that, lap dances etc),cuss up a storm and kill without regret, then get this for your child. If you are a parent and you do get this, you should probably turn your parent card in.
NOW, with all of that being said and all of the warnings and disclaimers made, this is one hell of a game. For adults (18+) there is a lot of value and bang for your buck with this game. What is great about this game, I believe, above some of the other games is the story mode. The story follows and jumps several different, but related characters on different story lines and different missions. But at the same time allows for the free form flexibility to explore the city, reek havoc or try out some of the different vehicles available. If you ever wanted to go hog wild by driving a semi truck through the city, smashing everything in your wake, with very little consequences, then this is your chance. In the real world we would get locked up or killed. In the GTA world we just get released or reborn.
There are boats and jet skis to ride, planes and helicopters to fly and tons of different types of cars and trucks to drive.
The replay value on this is huge. I spent one night just going to the shooting range (yes it has that to) and taking target practice. It also has numerous mini games within the big game as well that can each be played hours on end.
With all of the warnings and disclaimers being acknowledged, this game is a great escape and provides hours and weeks of entertainment and I didn't even get to the potential online element of the game.
If you get one game this year, for your adult kid or yourself, I would highly recommend this one.
