Grand Theft Auto V
Disappointed to say the least
I got caught up in the hype and bought this for XBone even though I 100%'d the game on X360. I've seen it on PS4 and the graphics are a giant upgrade there, but have seen it play on XBone and have found that it's not graphically as good as the PS4 version. I haven't opened it, and think I'll be returning it, as IMO, it doesn't justify paying another $60 for a game I've beaten already. The online for XBone is a mess right now and isn't working as it should. With the amount of new releases in Oct-Dec there are too many other new games out that I'd rather play. I don't consider this a new game, as there just isn't that much more to do in story mode to justify keeping this game. There are still no online heists and no significant new story mode content to justify playing this again. Hopefully they will add something like the Lost and Damned or Ballad of Gay Tony in the future to give me a reason to play this again, but in the mean time there is nothing that makes this a must play again game.
Not Enough Ca$h
GTA 5 is a rewarding experience in your beginning hours, exploring its massive world with a surplus of things to do and explore. Whether you play its campaign with good-scripted missions or its online mode where you build a sum of cash and flee from cops with your friends, you will be stuck on earning cash and buying more and better things. Buying all the cars and guns are some examples. Yet, with the endless amount of fun the world offers, you can't help but run out of things to do. And it begins to become work, not fun. Its slow rewards system and lack of a easy way to earn achievments turns you off, and away from the screen. Infact, GTA 5 hits its highpoints while playing with friends, running around jokelessly killing at random and playing with glitches, simply joking around. But then, when you come back into singleplayer you feel lonely and discouraged. But, in the end, everything to do and it's early dawn of fun and encouraging to gather with friends overrides almost all trashtalk about the game. It is almost perfect, almost.
If you want a game that gives you a gift then takes it away. its right here. Every holiday they give you cool cloths masks and cars. witch you spend 4 days earning money on missions to buy these items. then when you buy them. rockstar takes it all away after the holiday is over and doesn't give your money back. waste my time. they say graphics are better. duh its expected. 30 people in one lobby, cool, how about you fix the lagy problems to where 10 people lag out every 2 mins. and on Xbox one its about friends gaming and TV. if you snap a app or go to your friends list for more then a min, it kicks you from online play. woooooohoooooo. all my friends have same issues. my friends friends have theses issues and much more. I played 48 days worth before switching to the Xbox one. now, none of us play it. we don't like to be controlled, and we like to stay connected. we have played it 27 hours since switching 4 months ago. we used to play that in 3 days.
Trade in discount?
Are we going to be able to trade in the older gen game for the newer gen game for a smaller fee? Like when I had the Battlefield 4 360 version, for the xbox one version. I only had to pay $10 for the trade. Is gamestop going to do this again ?
gta 5 is amazing
this game is really good the story is awesome and the multiplayer is so awesome i wish heists was a little easier to set up though you have to wait a long time for people to join and it takes away from the game when your just sitting there waiting for players this game is really good though
Great with friends
GTA hasn't always been my favorite series and I really didn't enjoy GTA IV or any others as much as I know a lot of gamers did, but GTA V is fantastic! It has a stellar singleplayer if you're a lone wolf or if you have a group of people online it's the perfect game to play together and have some laughs.
Some Great Improvements
This game has seen a good amount of good improvements with this addition. The graphics are highly increased, compared to most "HD improved games" it's a masterpiece. The multiplayer was decent until the heists hit. With those the gameplay increased tenfold when playing online. The story is pretty weak but the characters are amazing.
If I am to give any advise to you it's to NOT PURCHASE THIS GAME IF YOU HAVE A STRONG ENOUGH PC TO HANDLE THAT VERSION. Trust me on this.
Discount for last gen owners
I'm glad GTA 5 is coming to next gen and PC but I don't think I should pay full price for this even more so when I bought the special edition of GTA 5 for my 360.
This game was amazing on xbox 360 and im happy that it will be coming out on the xbox one. It will be even better than the previous gen version. Cant wait till the official release date.
Guns, Cars, Girls...?? I think YES!!
If you've ever played a GTA game in the past, or even a Rockstar game for that matter. You'd know about there always satisfying quality gameplay. I've always thought they lacked a little when it comes to graphics. But considering that GTA has almost the largest free-rome map of all time, they did pretty darn good with the graphics. In my opinion it lacks interest when you're playing by yourself, so I usually only play with some friends. But if you like to take control and not rely on stupid people, then go right ahead. The sky is the limit in GTA 5, ...literally. It definitely doesn't lack in stuff to do. Also, no one ever actually does half of the things Rockstar says you can do in the game. Most of it is rhetorical, so just stick with the killing, smashing, screaming, murdering and you'll have lots of fun. So, to summarize it, DEFINITELY buy this game! It's actually one of the few games out there that's worth $60!!! Good luck.
