Grand Theft Auto V
Grand Theft Auto V review
Grand Theft Auto V (aka GTA 5 or GTA V) is the fifteenth game in the Grand Theft Auto series in the Action / Sandbox genre made by Rockstar Games in 2013. After nine years, we return to the sun-drenched streets of the city, where tight-fitting bikinis are preferred to jackets and hoodies, the coast is strewn with golden sand, and every second person is ready to get into your house and rob it.
Welcome to Los Santos, the city of the American Dream. 2013 was supposed to be remembered by millions of players around the globe by a huge number of high-profile games and the announcement of a new generation of consoles that will remain in homes and apartments for many years to come. Instead, everyone will remember 2013 as the year Grand Theft Auto V was released.
The story starts in North Yankton and continues in San Andreas. All three main characters have their own goals, but fate and a series of bad decisions lead to the fact that their paths intersect. They must not only confront several hostile factions but also deal with power struggles in government between large organizations and work together to carry out a series of robberies that will secure their freedom.
Unique features of GTA 5
- Three main characters;
- The huge city of Los Santos and the even larger state of San Andreas - this was the largest game world in the class AAA at the time of release;
- 65 story missions, three endings, unique quests;
- Extensive gameplay opportunities: shootouts, chases, robberies, stealing cars, showdowns with gangs and the police, skydiving, flying the F-22, and more;
- Other pleasant things: customization of cars, buying armored vehicles, healthy food for a dog, talking with a personal psychologist.
To assess this game, of course, you need a powerful computer. We used an Intel Core i7-3820 processor, Sapphire Vapor-X R9 280X OC graphics card and 4 GB of RAM. The maximum settings with a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels (at least 30-40 fps). However, you need more RAM - 6-8 GB just right.
There was an experience of launching GTA 5 on a weak system. The dual-core Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 and graphics of the level of GeForce GTX 650 did not allow enjoying the game even at 1680x1050 pixels and medium picture quality settings (average fps below 25-30).
One of the reasons Grand Theft Auto V is worth the time is its budget. The developers spend $266 million for the development and marketing of a video game. Even Cameron's Avatar cost less to its creators. As practice shows, Rockstar's games will be bought in two, three, and even five years after the release, and no one will remember Avatar. At the end of the life of the current generation consoles, which are already 7-8 years old, the authors decided promptly to release GTA V to make it the flagship.
- Huge area for wondering;
- Extensive gameplay opportunities;
- Game design.
- Badly constructed plot;
- High system requirements.
