Grand Theft Auto V review
Grand Theft Auto V
Grand Theft Auto V, the fifth installment in the Grand Theft Auto series, was released on September 17, 2013, for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A Windows version was released on April 14, 2015. The game is played from a third-person perspective and its world is navigated on-foot or by vehicle. Players control the three lead protagonists throughout the game, switching between them both during and outside of missions.
The game is a satirical take on modern American society. It contains 17 open world environments to explore, as well as a wide variety of vehicles. The game focuses on many activities, such as gunfights, car chases, and other illegal activities. The game is very violent and explicit. It has been criticized for its depictions of violence and sexual content. Grand Theft Auto V is an open world, action-adventure game that allows players to roam around the game's world freely. The game is set within the fictional state of San Andreas, which is based on Southern California. The game world is larger in area than the worlds of Grand Theft Auto IV, Red Dead Redemption, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas combined. The game can be played from either a first-person or third-person perspective.
Players complete missions—linear scenarios with set objectives—to progress through the story. Outside of missions, players can freely roam the open world. Composed of the fictional city of Los Santos and the surrounding area, the world is much larger in area than earlier entries in the series. It may be fully explored after the game's story is completed. Players can swim and dive in bodies of water, and fly helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft.
The game features three playable protagonists: Michael De Santa, Franklin Clinton, and Trevor Philips. Michael is a retired bank robber who lives under the witness protection program with his family. Franklin is a young man working for an Armenian-American car dealer, repossessing cars of people who cannot afford to pay. Trevor is an erratic criminal and former member of a biker gang who suffers from mental instability.
The game's main story is linear, but players are able to freely roam the open world after completing the game's initial missions. Each character has a unique set of skills: Michael is a skilled marksman and heist planner, Franklin is a gifted driver, and Trevor is a demolitionist and experienced thief. The game features a variety of optional side missions, which can be played at any time. The majority of the side missions are accessible after completing specific missions.
The graphics are amazing. The game is in high definition and the colors are very realistic. Grand Theft Auto V's graphics were significantly upgraded from those of its predecessor. The game uses a new engine, called RAGE, which allows for a greater degree of detail and interactivity. The game's lighting system is new, and allows for a wider range of lighting effects.
