GamePlay in GTA 5

Like all the recent GTA games this one is played from the third person view in an open world environment based on parts of California and Las Vegas.

GTA features auto aim to help you shoot your weapon more accurately. Also, the game has auto cover to help you evade enemy fire.

A new addition to the game is a Rottweiler who will attack if you point to an enemy. And of course, swimming, driving, swimming, flying, punching, kicking and jumping are a major part of the gameplay. And you can always use the vast array of weaponry to handle your business.

The gameplay is ultra smooth and your character moves around with such ease that it's hard to stop playing. You can jump, crawl, climb and fight with weapons or use your hands and feet. The movement remains as smooth as ever in the car, air, water and especially on foot.

GTA 5 Graphics

The graphics are very detailed in GTA 5 and they are very similar to the graphics from GTA 4. The biggest improvement on the graphics in this version compared to the others is the background. Especially, faraway backgrounds such as buildings and the water. The people in the game also have much clearer features than they did in past Grand Theft video games. The cut scenes are very crisp and clear.

Grade: A-

Music and Sounds

The music in Grand Theft Auto 5 is fabulous. Just like the other GTA games this one allows you to change radio stations in vehicles which lets you hear all types of music. Hundreds of tracks are featured in this game. Most of the tracks in the automobiles is hip hop or rock music.

The sound effects in this game are very realistic and all sounds happen in real time.

Grade: A+

Skydive or Parachute in GTA 5

In GTA 5 you can jump from airplanes and fly in helicopters. This allows you to see the city from above which along with the sounds, graphics and story line, make this game one of the best of the series.

The Plot

After seeing his wife with another man you decide to eliminate the man. After burning his mansion to the ground you realize you just destroyed the home of a drug lord.

Also, The FIB (F.B.I.) makes you work for them in order to remain a free man. Besides the law you encounter the outlaw motorcycle club, meth dealers, the Chinese Triad and other criminals. You are basically working for the good guys and for the bad guys.

A major part of the storyline has to do with robbing the gold bullion reserve from the depository. Heists are the central theme of the plot in this edition of GTA.

Grade: B+

Take To The Water!

Weapons, Cars and a Rottweiler

This version of the GTA series features even more cars than GTA 4 and of course boats, helicopters and motorcycles. You can also, steal a cab or you can pay a taxi driver to take you places.

The weapons in this video game are unbelievable. It's a massive increase in weaponry especially with guns and explosives. You can sniper from the roof top or you can set time bombs that go off at a designated time.

This is the first video game ever to feature a Rottweiler which will attack if you instruct it to. The dog follows you around the city and if your character points to someone the Rott will bite and subdue your enemy.

Final Thoughts.......

Being able to play between three different characters while completing missions is a very nice addition. The Rottweiler is a new feature that really makes the video game seem realistic.

Overall, I would say this is the best Grand Theft Auto game ever made. The open world is almost twice as big as it is in previous games. Not to mention the missions and the weaponry which are top notch to say the least. The sounds and music are amazing as usual.

Grand Theft Auto 5 has many more characters, weapons and cars than the other video games. Also, the city is very realistic with malls, gas stations, hospitals, police stations, homes and banks that you can enter at any time.

Grade: A

Living It Up at The Mansion.
