  Grand Theft Auto V - Review

  • Innovative three-protagonist structure leads to loads of amazing moments  
  • Outstanding, multilayered heists and other missions  
  • Huge, gorgeous, varied open world packed with things to see and do  
  • Trevor is an unforgettable character  
  • Great vehicle handling makes traveling the world a joy.

  • Politically muddled and profoundly misogynistic  
  • Character behavior is sometimes inconsistent.

GTA V is an imperfect yet astounding game that has great characters and an innovative and exciting narrative structure, even if the story it uses that structure to tell is hobbled at times by inconsistent character behavior, muddled political messages and rampant misogyny. It also raises the bar for open-world mission design in a big way and has one of the most beautiful, lively, diverse and stimulating worlds ever seen in a game.

No other world in video games comes close to this in size or scope, and there is sharp intelligence behind its sense of humour and gift for mayhem.
