Become a gangster with the 5th installment of GTA

A review by James

Grand Theft Auto V is an action-adventure game, developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. This is the first major title of the Grand Theft Auto series since the release of Grand Theft Auto IV in 2008, and a sequel to the fictional universe created by the GTA franchise. Tchnically, it is the fifteenth game in the series counting additional expansions and extra episodes. GTA 5 takes place in the fictional city of Los Santos and its surroundings, in the fictitious state of San Andreas, inspired by the real-life cities of Los Angeles and Southern California. A previous version of the city of Los Santos was already present among one of the three cities featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (2004) and in the original game of Grand Theft Auto (1997). According to Rockstar Games, Grand Theft Auto V is the second-largest open world after Red Dead Redemption 2. The game focuses primarily on “the pursuit of money”.

Choose one of three characters

Grand Theft Auto V has elements of previous games released in the series. It also features three protagonists that the player can play with: Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips and Franklin Clinton, criminals whose events bind each other during the game’s missions. During the missions, the player can alternate between the protagonists as they work as a team to accomplish their missions. Outside the game’s quests, the player can choose the protagonist he wants and explore the open world of the game, the fictional city of Los Santos, inspired by Los Angeles, and its surrounding landscape. In this case, a “Google Earth style” transition then gives the player a different perspective of the map.

Minigames in GTA 5

The player can engage in several entertainment activities, or mini-games, such as golf, tennis, triathlon, BASE jumping among others. In a similar way to Grand Theft Auto IV, these mini-games can be done with the friends of the main character. The character also has a range of weapons in addition to cars, bicycles, water or air vehicles (such as airplanes and helicopters) that he can use and drive.

Play multiplayer

The Grand Theft Auto V multiplayer was announced by Rockstar Games in a Q & A on July 5, 2013. It is called Grand Theft Auto: Online. The company announced that a video presentation of this multiplayer will be available later, during the summer 2013. At the end of the first gameplay video of GTA V, players are shown a short sequence of multiplayer mode. In multiplayer, up to 30 players (16 players for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions) can meet simultaneously online and have the opportunity to play freely, complete individual or team missions, do different activities or participate in events, as well as in classic game modes. It’s also possible to create your own races and custom deathmatches, using a new feature called Content Creator, or to play on the ones other players have created. The missions allow the player to get money and accumulate experience points, which respectively allow you to personalize and improve your character (hairstyle, clothes, vehicles and properties) and increase your charactre’s rank of criminal to unlock new missions. There were many bugs disrupting the functioning of Online play during the first few weeks of the multiplayer mode, however Rockstar games released a string of updates to fix these.
