fun to play but rockstar makes online life such a drag. low payouts on missions...and hackers galore roaming with god modes and tanks. lame some sessions are ok but trust me you will end up in a lobby with god modders and they will give you money and then u get sent to the cheaterpool. wow.

the campain was short and lack a point.i think that a game with there different caracters could of had a longer campaign. after you beat the game it kind of ends realy nothing to do to keep you playing I thought that the hipe did not stand up to the game there was a lot of things that you could not do in the game, like the number of propretys you could own or how many cars you could have a lot of details where left out don't get me wrong the graphics whetre great but the ovaer all of the game sucks

Make no mistake, GTA 5 is a crime simulation first and foremost, which means care must to be taken to keep the kiddies out of the room while playing a game like this. The profanity flows as freely as the animation of the characters and the exaggerated gang banger antics of Franklin's friend Lamar can at times produce a roll of the eyes. This could of course garner the attention of a politician or two looking to reignite the debate on violence in video games, and one could hardly argue with them on the "violence" part since GTA 5 is indeed a violent video game that should be kept from those with impressible minds.

That being said, the game is an impressive technological feat, and it's sometimes hard to believe that it could been done on 6+ year old hardware. Physics and lighting have improved substantially over GTA 4.

However, since Rockstar has decided to return to its San Andreas roots with RPG style character leveling, the movement and controls of your character can feel a little sluggish at first until you level them up and increase their endurance, running speed, strength, etc. This will of course make those that still have GTA 4 fresh in their minds feel that GTA 5 is a slower paced game, but as stated early this is only temporary.

All in all, GTA 5 is a great "swan song" for current gen systems, and I'm pretty sure people will still be playing it even after the next gen systems hit the market.
