I have been playing GTA from the beginning and I have to say this is by far the best one yet. The 3 protagonists are a welcome addition from the standard one character perspective. GTA IV was good but Niko got very boring and I wasn't really a fan of his character. So this gives you a very much needed break when you need it from a character. So if you are getting bored with Franklin, switch it up. Tired of Michael go to Trevor. Love this feature.
The missions so far have been outstanding. A good mix of intense fighting and police chases yet still the sort of "take a breather" type missions where you just go here and get that.
Pacing has been great. They allow for missions to get to know each character before tossing you into the fire. Also gave them special focus abilities which is nice for driving and shooting.
The open map from the start was also a nice change. How annoying was it to get stuck on that last mission before opening another section? No more. Just go wherever you want from the opening scene.
Vehicle selection has been awesome. In GTA's past you had to open a section to get the good cars. This game offers them up from the start.
Expanded property purchasing system which is nice however I wish they would expand the activities you can do in these homes. Right now you just save the game. It would be nice to shoot pool, sit and chill but still not much to do there. Dont get me wrong, there are some things. Michaels house you can watch tv, Franklins you can do bing hits etc.. But more would be better.
Graphics are amazing. I see people knocking to but a game of this size, you have to expect that there may be some graphical issues. The amount of testing to cover every square inch must have been tedious and near impossible to cover every leaf on every tree.
In short, this is light years ahead of all other GTA's. I could go on for hours but just got buy it and have fun. You won't regret it,

By Far the best Action and Adventure I have ever played,
Other then the dissapointment in the story being so short, all the activities, or game play in general is just amazing, the graphical engine they used is outstanding especially for a game this big. Don't expect too much from the story line, because they mostly focused on the Online, which is amazing and more and more is to come to the Online, (can't wait) I believe this game beats all other rockstar games as the controls are easier, the steering and the Physics engines are perfect. some bugs on the online, but rock star is working hard on fixing them. If you want this game don't think twice, it's amazing in every possible way, and there is much more to come to this amazing action and adventure game by Rockstar!
