Grand Theft Auto V review
Exceptional
by AutoDMC

Grand Theft Auto 5 is not my first Grand Theft Auto, but it's the first one I've completed.  I found the story to be very engaging, and the three characters all horrible people in their own way.  The driving is tight and fun, and I often found myself just stealing a car to go out on a drive, with no need to go on any specific missions.

The checkpointing system is pretty tolerant.  It keeps the difficulty curve for missions where it should be, but doesn't punish you too horribly when you mess up.  This keeps the momentum of the game moving forward in a way that previous installments of the game failed to do.

I love the colors and vibrancy of Los Santos, but felt at times that the depravity of this alternative California was played a little too over the top... almost to a Saints Row level. At those times I felt a little taken out of the universe, but it was all in good fun.

All in all I had fun playing every single mission in the game, and even some of the side content.  I'd recommend going through the campaign without becoming too distracted by the sidequests in order to get the most enjoyment out of the game.  There's always plenty of time available after the campaign to destroy advertisements and get naughty pictures with the paparazzi.

If you play the stroy you're going to enjoy it so much. The plot is very interesting and it maintains you hooked to the game. The secondary missions are enjoyable and they give you some more lore to the title. The online is not the best part at all but you can try it with some friends to be a little bit more fun. It gave me 44 hours of action and fun.

A must-play game for everyone. GTA 5 is so dynamic that will always feel yourself driving and chilling on roads.

The latest Grand Theft Auto game continues to have it's name driven further and further into the mud by it's online counterpart's predatory practices but the singleplayer remains as unapologetic and purely fun as it ever was. The game is an explosive heist movie that encourages destruction but knows when to tone down the wackiness and insert some real character moments. You can say what you want but the fact that I know Los Santos's downtown district and Bay Area better than I know my own city's streets despite living here my whole life is testament to its greatness.
10/10 - A MASTERPIECE!!
