Grand Theft Auto V Review
Here comes another franchise of the renowned game Grand Theft Auto V. It does not fail the spectators’ high expectations; also it has set a mark that future generation won’t be able to compete with! It was released last September 17, 2013 by Rockstar North and Rockstar Games as publisher. It is one of the highly awaited for games of the decade! Grand Theft Auto V is indeed a very huge game; as installation requirement is 8.4 MB of hard disk space!
Grand Theft Auto V is full of action and adventure and can be played from a third person’s point of view. What makes this game fun? The player gets to fight with the use of firearms, weapons, melee attacks, and toss explosives to the enemies. Also, players can swim, run as fast as they could, and even use vehicles to navigate the game’s open world setting. Just like any other games, the main objective of Grand Theft Auto V is to level up and complete missions to be able to advance and achieve progress in the game.
The game owners have made the game a complete improvement, which is rather obvious especially to those who are experienced Grand Theft Auto players. Every level has undergone an overhaul, but not on the negative side though. Much better experience and increased level of fun and excitement is provided especially when it comes to the animations, characters, and the whole game itself.
Playing this game has allowed the players to get connected to the game, compared to the previous franchise where you will feel a bit lost and wandering at certain points. However, there are some minor disturbing scenes in Grand Theft Auto V. Like for instance, the mechanic looking rag doll that they use in giving the bodies a more realistic approach especially when the character is hit or shot. This could lead to ridiculous moments especially in the instances that the rag doll jumps into an object unknowingly.
The details are well attended for, makes the game looks very promising. Wherever game’s world takes you, there will never be a moment when you will feel lost. They have done a great job in that game factor! Grand Theft Auto V has a lot of interesting places to be, like cities that are nicely lit, beautifully landscaped mountain regions, deserts and even under the sea setting!
Grand Theft Auto V’s innovative open world storytelling and not even a single moment of boredom concept made the structure of the gameplay flow and move on nicely. The three game characters that were interconnected by their individual stories are:
Michael De Santa – early 40’2 and he is a retired bank robber who is based in Beverly Hills. He lives with his unfit family in an upper class city. His story has come to an end and he is trying to adjust. His unique ability is getting time slows down during gun fights.
Trevor Phillips – Michael’s previous partner in crime lives in a trailer by the desert all by himself. A drug addict, displaying mentally unbalanced and fidgety behaviours. He is the supporting character recast as a protagonist. Trevor’s unique skill is that, he can get a damage boost while the reducing time is taken.
Franklin Clinton – makes a living as a repo man in a shady Armenian Car Dealership. He used to avoid life of crime but to no avail, later succumbed and thrust himself into it. Slowing down time when he is driving is Franklin’s unique skill.
The players are given the ability to have the full control of these 3 characters’ lives. Get them chasing while riding a dune buggy cross mountains and deserts. Nothing in these scene feels like repetition, and that is what makes it really interesting enough to get the players engaged. The developers of the game has managed to improve the missions and done a fantastic job of mixing up changes that keeps boredom out of bay.
Mission types vary in every mission level, but robbery ones are the most prevalent. The robbery success chance would be great depending on the character of your selection. His abilities and decision making capabilities will be required in order to get the preparation done. The skills would go up if you use the same auxiliary staff, but cut will stay at the same level. Jobs being done vary, but all of them offer a lot of fun and excitement.
The individual stories of the three characters are fantastically well written and well thought of. It seems like they will let you feel as though you are the one living their lives out that is how engaging they could be. The players’ ability to build the skills in the game has retained and that is something the fans will be glad about. Everything will progress naturally even skills, get into fights as often as you can and you will witness how your punches change for the better.
Rockstar North’s most obvious improvement to the game will be the shooting mechanic, which does not only allow lock-on, but free-aim targeting as well. Players will feel a great relief shooting smoothly, and naturally like they are not shooting at all! The fights felt forced however, like the one on one punch, counter and dodge. Updated and interesting unlike the other games’ settings.
Grand Theft Auto games’ trademarks are vehicles to be ridden and car napped, fly around in and chase fights that never failed to give adrenaline rush to the players. In this game franchise, cooler cars are added, with more detailed body parts, one could enjoy riding nonstop. But the ability to drive these cars depends on the damages taken and the overall condition as well. Indeed, Grand Theft Auto V has again proven that attention to detail is really essential. Another thing, you need a great deal of skill and practice to be able to manage flying an aircraft. This way, it could help the player to level up the skill and advance to the next mission level.
When it comes to the dialogues, voice acting and all between characters is pretty amazing. That is something to look forward to by the new players who have not experienced playing Grand Theft Auto V. The overall soundtrack is superb as well. The team of producers of this game collaborated to create a 20 hours music scores to cover all of the game’s missions. About 200 + songs were licensed and used in the game.
Grand Theft Auto V’s developers are looking forward to seeing this game as a very successful franchise of their previous projects such as Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption. Shortly after the game’s release, it was given very good reviews due to its amazing storyline, open ended gameplay and presentation!
