Grand Theft Auto V Reviews
If you have not played GTA V for a while or not at all, this is the definitive version to play.
After almost ten years, Grand Theft Auto V begins to show its age. It's a remarkable video game though, but three new visual modes can't hide the fact that some of its game systems are beginning to feel antiquated. Still, this next-gen version is obviously the best way to play GTA 5 and GTA Online.

Grand Theft Auto V is a very curious case, a game that is still in the main rankings of the world as one of the best-selling titles despite having come out almost a decade ago (and having been given away by Epic), which leads to think that people have bought it on several different platforms and, in many cases, more than once. So, is it worth buying it again? I think that answer depends on each one, on their level of fanaticism for the game, on the economy of each one and on what they expect from production in this new generation.

Without any content additions for those who have already explored every alley in Los Santos, this version of GTA V may not be enough for veterans, but it remains a true masterpiece in the new generation. It also supports 60 fps or the ultra-high definition in 4k, making it the best possible way to enjoy this great criminal journey.

Into its 3rd generation and GTA V is still printing money for Rockstar. The new generation version is not as jaw-dropping as it was almost a decade ago, but it is the best way to play it if you are one of the very few who hasn't already; And even if you did, the current discounted price might tempt you to give it another try anyway.

It's somewhat unfair to compare the next-gen console versions to a PC as my video card costs more than both consoles combined. That said, what Rockstar has pulled off here is as close to a PC running at max settings, but with a slightly lower draw distance and less feature-rich anti-aliasing. On the other hand, if you are coming from the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One, the difference is staggering. Most of the time a next-gen native version of a game is just a higher-resolution minimal-effort wallet hug, but here it's clear that the developers are looking to deliver the best version of their most successful game ever, ahead of finally getting another proper installment in the series.
Grand Theft Auto V is a great game to anyone who enjoys a vast and expansive open world with lots of stuff do and having something for everyone.
In short, GTA V is still a great game, that hasn't changed, but the PC version doesn't add a lot and introduces plenty of new problems that you have to contend with. If you are graphics-obsessed or are a fan of machinima, then pick it up. Otherwise, the last-gen versions will do you fine.
It remains to be seen how smooth gta online's launch is, but other than that, Rockstar has made a better version of Grand Theft Auto V in pretty much all areas, and that's still better than almost all the other games on the market now in 2014.

Given Rockstar's reputation for creating controversial content with satirical tones and sharp social commentary, it should come as no surprise that GTA V carries all the classic hallmarks of this developer, and does it times better than before. Its graphic content might turn you away, but if you take the time to dig in a little deeper, you will find that GTA V is a worthy descendant of the previous games as it carries all the classic hallmarks - it is sharp, witty, intelligent, and just the right shade of nasty -, and is a true inspiration for future open-world action adventure games.
The next-gen variety of 'Grand Theft Auto V' is unequivocally a rerelease, increasingly common for the gaming industry. However, a notable amount of work and care has been put into its development, specifically with the first-person mode, and this makes for an even better 'GTA V.' As much as I appreciate the first-person mode, enhanced graphics, and other little things, this version is best for those gamers who missed last year's release. It's still one of the best games to be found on the Xbox One.
Fantastic visuals and enhanced AI behaviour makes the virtual world of San Andreas come to life, and the Rockstar Editor is a powerful tool for machinima creators. It really is the definitive version of a modern classic.
Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4 is easily the best version of the game available at the moment. At the end of the day, it is still functionally the same game as before, with most of the same flaws and strengths. Some new features expand the gameplay a bit, including a very cool first-person mode, but nothing here will change anyone's opinion of the franchise. Some minor technical flaws, including an inconsistent frame rate, drag down the game a little, but it's largely a step up from the last-gen versions. It's bigger, prettier and smoother, but it's still GTA5.
Rockstar delayed the release of the enhanced GTA V on the PC by several months, and now that it is released, it's easy to see why. In bringing what is essentially a flawless game to the PC, they have understood the most important aspect of porting over any console game to the PC: control. The ability for players to control even the most seemingly benign setting of their game is crucial to any decent PC port. Combined with its superior visuals, movie making tools and flawless controls, Grand Theft Auto V on the PC is with little argument the best way to experience this acclaimed title.
All in all Grand Theft Auto V is a natural evolution of the series, and it does indeed make it seem difficult to comprehend where exactly they can take it next. There's certainly a few areas that could do with some polish, but fans of open-worlds will find one of the most accomplished games in years, and, despite hours and hours spent prodding around, I think there's some many secrets still for me to find. One thing's for sure and it's got my appetite whetted for the PC version, because once the modding community gets their hands on this it's going to be a joy to see.
With a plethora of visual enhancements and quality of life improvements for GTA V and GTA Online leading the charge (60fps performance, ray-traced shadows and significantly faster loading times chief among them), there’s never been a better, easier or more affordable time to visit San Andreas on current-gen consoles, whether it’s your first trip or if you’ve been away for years.
Grand Theft Auto V is one the best games released in the last decade and holds up surprising well nine years later.
If you have never played Rockstar's work this is the perfect time to make it your own and, in case you have already experienced old gen, different incentives to buy this version too, such as new missions, new cars, new filters and new events could be the stimulus you were waiting for to jump on this next generation open world.

This is the best looking, best performing GTA game to grace consoles, bar none.
Rockstar's current-generation release of Grand Theft Auto V doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it does improve it to a state where we can definitely call if the definitive edition on consoles. Its graphical and gameplay improvements make the game a much better product overall, and Rockstar seems to have put a lot of work into this rendition rather than delivering a straight port. It remains to be seen whilst remaining players will want to upgrade to this version, but newcomers will definitely be in for a delight. Its only drawback is the fact that GTA Online seems a tad bit lacking at times and doesn't always perform as it should, which puts this game at a hair-length from a perfect score.
