Grand Theft Auto V
Grand Theft Auto V review
GTA5 or Grand Theft Auto V is the video game that belongs to an action-adventure genre. The game was released in September 2013. GTA5 was developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. Despite the appearance of several different spin-offs, this release is considered as the main entry since GTA4 was released in 2008. GTA5 describes the story of three criminals, and the main events are set in a fictional city named Los Santos.
GTA5 refers to an action-adventure game. Although the general gameplay is linear, which means that you should complete all missions step by step to pass the game, there are also many side missions completing which you can discover the whole GTA5 world. There are three main characters, all of them are the former criminals: Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips, and Franklin Clinton. Each protagonist has a set of eight skills. You can improve them by using these skills in the missions. Also, the criminals have one unique ability that they can o the best.
For example, Franklin has time dilation while riding in transport. The usage of this ability can give you an advantage in maneuverability during passing the missions. Michael, another protagonist, has also the time dilation ability but during shooting, not transport riding. You can use it to make the aiming easier. The last main character, Trevor, has rabies. It allows you to inflict twice as much damage to enemies, and receive half as much. Do not forget that similar to the skill set, you also train these unique opportunities to increase the chances to pass the mission.
GTA5 game has realistic graphics. Similar to all previous launches in the GTA game series, the developers use the real American city to create the game fictional city where the main events happen. In the fifth release the fictional city is named Los Santos, and its landscapes were taken from Los Angele. In addition to urban landscapes, the developers from Rockstar North also implemented other locations, starting from mountains and ending with forests. If you are an attentive gamer, you can notice that there is one more state in GTA V, North Yankton. Most probably, it is a parody to the real North Dakota state that is near the Canadian border. Totally, the game contains 39 locations.
What about audio, GTA 5 has 18 music stations. Players can switch between them anytime. By the way, it is not something new. If you have ever played the previous GTA game before, then, you will be familiar with this feature. What’s new, is that the developers added the opportunity to listen to one of the radio stations during the mission.
You can download GTA5 on the following platforms: PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. The controls are very similar to those used in the previous GTA games.
