Well, it has happened. We finally got another Grand Theft Auto after almost six years of waiting. There are many things that can go wrong with such a great game, but Rockstar has somehow managed to develop a game that is near perfect. That said, there are a few minor issues with the product overall that leave it very close to being one of the best video games of all time.
To call Grand theft auto v an ambitious game would be totally underestimating it. This is the first game that truly feels like a living world that breathes. It also implements mechanics that make games like Obligations and even The Sims it works so well. Grand theft auto v it’s like the Rome of videogames; It merges the best features of other games and puts them in a delicate game package.
One of the great features of Grand theft auto v It is the new concept of playing as three main characters. This caused some confusion as gamers were concerned that the writing was not as sharp or that the game simply did not fit well as a whole. Fortunately, this is all fully resolved and the way you switch between the main characters is groundbreaking both from a technical point of view and from a game perspective.
With the three main characters of Grand theft auto v, you are getting different experiences. Franklin is the youngest who focuses on his driving skills and Michael is like a washed up mobster who now lives the family life. Then there is Trevor. Trevor is basically a time bomb whose strap has been completely removed and almost fits into Grand theft auto v very good. Think of him as the Joker with a drinking problem, only even more murderous.
The story was very eventful and at times it was one of the best mission builds I’ve seen in a game before. In order not to spoil anything, but you will fly helicopters, steal bulldozers, and from time to time you will fly out of windows. With games these days only lasting 8-10 hours, it was great to play a game that was a marathon length. There were so many character specific missions to participate in in addition to the true story; Needless to say, this game will keep you busy.
In my opinion, there are actually four main characters; the fourth is Los Santos, the city where all this happens. Los Santos is based in Los Angeles and tries to replicate the craziest aspects of that area. You’ll have beaches to run, military bases to infiltrate, fancy mansions to invade, and even wildlife to shoot. The best part of this world is that it will move on with or without you. For example, I saw a high-speed chase and eventually the perpetrator stopped and got out of his car and there was a mass shooting between him and the police. The game is downright fun.
With such a large game, it would be hard to imagine them focusing on images, right? Rockstar is pushing the aging PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 to their limits. As you play, fly over the ocean and marvel at how beautiful it is and how the waves roll in. However, not everything is rainbow, graphics come at a price. There were many times when the frame rate dropped quite significantly, especially when you’re in a heavily populated place full of NPC characters. The worst seemed to be when he was driving in the middle of Michael’s exclusive neighborhood.
With so many things to do and experience, this game really doesn’t seem to end. Even after beating the game and all the main side missions, I am still busy with other tasks. For example, I’m trying to run a bar with Michael and even play bag with all of my characters. And nothing is more fun than jumping out of your burning plane and opening your parachute to enjoy the view. Heck, you can even customize your vehicles and weapons.
It seems the best is yet to come Grand theft auto v. In October, Rockstar will release the online portion of the game titled (of course) Grand Theft Auto Online. This will be almost entirely your own experience and the game is very ambitious. If they can achieve all the things they say are possible, we will never abandon our televisions.
Grand theft auto v it is the game to get; It is an incredible value for what you are paying. It’s hard to justify spending sixty dollars on something else after this game. This could even carry over to Xbox One and PlayStation 4, so fingers crossed that Rockstar could implement a way to transfer saved information to new consoles. Even with its flaws like falling frame rate, and sometimes character switching doesn’t live up to its potential, GTA Vit is absolutely one of the best games of this generation. You’ll really miss it if you don’t at least play this, but you should probably go in and buy it from your local Slackers today.
