Within the gritty real world of urban street crime, rival gangs and gangsters battle it out for ultimate dominance. However, in the virtual world of city street crime, only one brand reigns supreme: Grand Theft Auto.
Now, with the new instalment planned for September 2013, the series is as sound as ever. GTA V will feature an artificial world so great that the expansive worlds of prior instalments GTA IV, Grand theft auto: San Andreas and even Western adventure Red Dead Redemption possibly will all fit comfortably inside its boundaries. As if that was not sufficient, the virtual world of Grand theft auto V even has its own ecosystem and the entire ocean floor can be mapped and explored (if the gamer fancies a bit of a break from murdering people, specifically). The amount of detail and craftsmanship that Rockstar Games has gone to this time around is simply wonderful.
Grand theft auto 5 follows the nefarious misadventures of three characters, each of whom can be operated through the player at any time. When you select a brand new player, the screen zooms upwards; ‘Google Earth’ mode and plummets back down toward the location of our chosen ne’er-do-well.
Aside from that, roughly every aspect of Grand theft auto 5 is overhauled. A vastly improved combat technique (which includes amazing new aiming and shooting features) joins a complete retooling of even the most simple GTA functions. Do not fret though, they haven’t jettisoned the series effortless playability or comfortable gameplay, they have just built it better.
As an example, at anywhere in the title, now you can ‘flip off’ passers by (or your own allies). The NPC on the receiving end of this rudeness will react in a variety of different ways, depending on the stipulated character data and the area that they happen being in.
However, for all those of you murderous tyrants around, do not despair. GTA hasn’t become a sensitive feely virtual nature documentary, or some type of socially aware cautionary tale about not flipping people off in public. Oh no (far from it, in fact). The Grand theft auto series has always been about the dark side of city drama, the grim and gritty truth of life in the mean streets of the world’s immense urban expansion projects (well, that and running grannies over in Land Rovers, anyway). GTA 5 isn’t different, inside the latest instalment, you will find all the blood, guts, gore, massacre and wanton destruction you have come to demand from this franchise. All that and far, much more…
