An Ever Expanding World of Crime: Grand Theft Auto V Review

An Ever Expanding World of Crime: Grand Theft Auto V ReviewScore 92%Score 92%

Grand Theft Auto V is one of those titles that somehow remains to be just as big, if not more, in comparison to the day it was released nearly 5 years ago. Nearly 5 years ago was when this game got originally released and it quickly became close to one of the top selling video games of all time, and considering that it’s a GTA title, it should come as no surprise why that is. This game’s age has no boundaries whatsoever on just how good Rockstar’s latest GTA game truly is!

Even though a lot of this sandbox game involves stealing cars and committing copious amounts of murder, there is in fact a story, a story that quickly becomes more enjoyable and in-depth the deeper you go. The story revolves around 3 different characters, all of which eventually come to have their lives intertwine in some way or another. Before too long they realise that their collective skills can be used to gain a serious amount of cash, to finally live the lives they’ve always dreamed of. As the story progresses, their lives quickly become wrapped in a lot of different problems that aren’t going to disappear overnight, causing them to find some unique ways to get out of trouble.

While the story is definitely interesting and enjoyable from start to finish, it’s the characters that truly make this game’s writing shine. Each character has their own strengths and flaws (not only in gameplay) and with each new scenario or cutscene, you’re never quite sure what they’re going to do next. Despite the fact all of these characters become mass murderers by the end of the game, you quickly find yourself caring about them and the inner workings of their lives, and that’s what makes them so engaging to be around.

In terms of the gameplay, Grand Theft Auto V plays just like any of the other modern-day GTA games, such as GTA IV and San Andreas, but with less of the realism of IV and more of the ridiculousness of San Andreas; a game many people consider to be the best in the franchise. Playing just like a 3rd person shooter, you take to the streets and can pretty much do whatever you feel like, whenever you feel like. Do you feel like driving a car or a plane to your next mission? That choice is up to you. Maybe you want to feel just how quickly you can get to maximum wanted level instead. Hell, you can even rob a convenience store, commit grand heists, or pop down to the local pub and play some darts. There is so much to do in this game, and that’s all before you even jump online for the first time.

Overall, Grand Theft Auto V is one of those games that’s still managing to go strong after nearly 5 years now, and it has no plan on slowing down by the looks of things. Story and characters in this game will have you laughing and keeping you engaged throughout the entire ride, and the gameplay won’t let you go once you’ve started. By any chance you don’t already own this game, do yourself a favour and just get it, it’s one of those titles that really doesn’t disappoint.
