Summary

Marrying gameplay brilliance to compelling characters and a world matched only in size by the number of things you can do in it, Grand Theft Auto V is a masterpiece--one of the greatest games ever made.

We like

  • Enthralling gameplay, with refined shooting and driving
  • Breathtaking world with hundreds of ways to occupy hundreds of hours
  • Thrilling story, with memorable characters and performances

We dislike

  • No custom music playback
  • One particularly gratuitous scene
