Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) Review
After first being released in 1997, the Grand Theft auto franchise has risen from strength to strength. The latest release comes in the form of Grand Theft Auto V and promises to be larger, more powerful and more complex than any of the previous releases
The latest installment of the series incorporates the original concepts that made the game so popular in the first place. You play as a criminal that is trying to rise through the ranks, by completing missions that reward money. The city becomes like a big playground where anything is possible.
Grand Theft Auto V also brings in a selection of interesting features that will please fans of the previous titles. In this version, more than one character can be controlled in the main story line. The player may switch between different characters, who end up actually meeting one another as the game progresses. Like in previous versions of the game, one can purchase properties. There is also a built internet and stock market within the game. There are also many mini games throughout the game, including tennis, motor cross and sky diving.
The graphics and the physical engine in this game are far better and more realistic than in previous versions. The action in the game is also fluid and enjoyable throughout. There is also a complex multi-player game built in, and offers a selection of different games where payers can work together or battle one another over the internet. These battle modes can be accessed when the player has a Wi-Fi connection. This is certainly the most advanced version of Grand Theft Auto to have ever been released, and possibly is one of the most in depth games available at the moment. Players will have a hard time getting bored with this game, as there is so much to do.
