GRAND THEFT AUTO V

Grand Theft Auto V was released on March 14, 2015 by Rockstar Games. The game was developed by Rockstar Games. Grand Theft Auto V is a driving game with first/third person action.

An account is required with Rockstar. We discovered a cybersquatter had illegally used our trademarked name and the publisher has not responded to inquiries.

When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.

Grand Theft Auto V for PC offers players the option to explore the award-winning world of Los Santos and Blaine County in resolutions of up to 4k and beyond, as well as the chance to experience the game running at 60 frames per second. Rockstar worked hard and the PC version has exceeded expectations.

This time out the same missions and action adventure are simply presented with better graphics than ever. Rockstar made sure the PC version of this game would shine.  This game has been available for consoles for 2 years but this is the PC version being reviewed. The PC version has the option of being played from the third or first person perspective. We note more games are now offering this option as consoles and the PC are played differently.

Players use melee attacks, firearms and explosives to fight enemies, and may run, jump, swim or use vehicles to navigate the world. To accommodate the map’s size, the game introduces vehicle types absent in its predecessor Grand Theft Auto IV, such as fixed-wing aircraft.

In combat, auto-aim and a cover system can be used as assistance against enemies. Should players take damage, their health meter will gradually regenerate to its halfway point. Players respawn at hospitals when their health depletes. If players commit crimes, while playing, law enforcement agencies may respond as indicated by a “wanted” meter in the head-up display (HUD).

GTA veterans will recognize how the game underneath it all works. There is a backbone of narrative missions that gamers must complete in order to progress, but beyond them is a vast range of dynamic encounters, side-quests and money-making ventures.

The single-player mode lets players control three characters: Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips and Franklin Clinton criminals whose stories interconnect as they complete missions. Some missions are completed with only one character and others feature two or three.

A lot of the game play is rather outlandish, such as riding a motorcycle along the edge of a concrete roadway etc. While its possible to travel like ordinary people GTA5 encourages crazy driving in the extreme.

As money is earned the player can then outfit their cars etc. The game is rich with options to pick from.

The campaign can take over 200 hours to complete. Which is one of the reasons that the GTA series has become so popular–many recent games have such short campaigns.
