GTA 5 Review: Living the Game
So, do you think you know everything about revamped video game versions? GTA 5 is going to kick your stereotype book, hijacks its wheels, and then run the remains over just to be sure. In other words, Grand Theft Auto V will turn your view on remastered video game releases upside down. And here’s why...
GTA 5 is the latest version in one of the biggest budget and most acknowledged video game franchises in history. The revamped version gathered immensely positive user reviews for its huge, dense, enigmatic sun-kissed open-world environment, its dynamic plot, charismatic humor as well as its multiple sub-quests, missions, and mysteries which made the gameplay feel endless and alive. In fact, upon playing Grand Theft Auto V, you will feel as if you’re living the game, not simply playing it.
Graphics / Sound
GTA 5 boasts mind-blowing graphics. You will love how significantly face animations have improved in this version. Combined with the already perfect voice performances, they make the game feel even more alive and real. A longer view distance in GTA 5 allows you to carelessly dive into the astonishingly alive open-world which now feels even more solid and magnetic.
Interface and Controls
You can control the game with a mouse and keyboard as well as a controller. Navigating through the menus is simple and intuitive. Where the mouse-and-keyboard controls feel really cool is shooting. No matter how many enemies attack you, a mouse makes it really easy to shoot them down. If you prefer playing with a controller, the game seamlessly adjusts the controls so you can just sit back, relax and knock yourself out pillaging your favorite gangster adventure.
The entirely new first-person mode allows you to see things through your character’s eyes. As a result, you get immersed in the game like never before. What’s also impressive about the graphics of GTA 5 is the incredible level of detailing. The visual details are so beautiful and meticulously recreated that even your car interior is an absolute feast for the eye and the senses.
In some missions, GTA 5’s multi-dimensional interface provides several alternative versions of completing the same mission. For example, in one version you can play one character with a gun as they sneak onto a boat. In the alternative version, you can play the opponent character who’s already on the boat turning the game from an action shooter to a stealth mission.
Grand Theft Auto V has expanded significantly, transforming Los Santos into a gigantic immersive playground. You will enjoy the missions like never before. The characters are fun and believable. Each of them is created charming, fun to play and appealing. Changing instantly between Franklin, Trevor and Michael is something you won’t be able to get enough of.
Grand Theft Auto V is an absolute treat to play. Each gameplay detail is so incredibly alive that, combined with the stellar beauty of the open world, it gives you the amazing feeling of being the character, instead of playing it. That's GTA V at its best - totally immersive and addictive.
