Finally here, and it's great.SIERRA11789 | April 17, 2015 | See all SIERRA11789's reviews »
I originally played GTA V on 360, but could never really get into it due to me having issues playing with a low resolution on the telly, I liked the game, I loved the gameplay and I enjoyed the story. The game has now arrived to PC as the complete package including 60 fps, First Person mode, new weapons & vehicles and a functioning multiplayer (thanks for play-testing PS3, 360, PS4 & XONE owners ;) ) the game is perfect in every way imaginable, cannot recommend highly enough, even if you own a console version, as long as you enjoy the core concept of open world 3d/1st person shooter, then you will love this (again, albeit improved) 9/10.
It took a while, but it's awesome.Snotnarok | April 16, 2015 | See all Snotnarok's reviews »
I've never played GTA V on other devices, didn't really see much footage of it till the day before the PC release and it was everything from how solid the port was to how much they did right and how great it's gonna be. I'm a fan of GTA though I've avoided it since GTA IV, that was a mixed bag and just didn't give me the same fun 2,3,VC had. I've played a bit and I'll separate them by general and online. So, keep that in mind that I only played a few hours of SA and while I beat 4, I also would happily never play it again.
General: This port, unlike GTAIV is amazing, they have a lot of options to tweak and adjust, from very in depth graphical options, sound options, you can use mouse & keboard or switch to a controller- on the fly. So if you like driving/flying with a controller but shooting with a mouse and kb? Easily done! Everyone has always wondered what GTA would be like in first person, obvious from the mods some have made and installed, now it's in the game by default and they went ALL out. Get into a car and you're treated to- not some floating cam on the hood of the car but a fully modeled interior of the car! In first person you can run around and do everything as normal, and there's an option to switch to 3rd person if you use cover.
Graphically the game is wildly pretty, as stated car interiors are fully modeled and look great, there's a variety of areas to visit with different areas. The map is huge, it's not Just Cause 2 huge but it's impressively large. Runs at 60fps at 1080p with everything mostly on highest (exceptions being not putting every AA option on, PC specs at end of review)
Online: This is hit or miss, you start out making a character with a unique styled character creator which ...while neat, makes the process more complicated than it needs to be.
Here's what I hated: I played with some random people for a few hours and I would charitably describe them as lively. Being called several names over voice then attacked, then again more name calling- and you'll be defending yourself too because Rockstar thought it'd be in your best interest to point out all players actively on the mini-map and map. So if you want to just try and do some things and there's 1 jerk? He can hunt all players down. They DO mark people who do this by making their dot more and more red and 'good' players are encouraged to hunt them, but it's not any less annoying. They already have tactics where they will hit you to make you kill them, now they know you killed you once and now they will single you out and chase you down till you move servers. 20 minutes into online while I try and learn the game and 1 jerk decided to do this to me, unknown that I was now marked with a big 1 on my dot telling him where I was at all times.
Only made worse by how fast you die, I'm sure this was more geared how it was on console where using sticks was a bit harder to aim but with a mouse you can kill a player in a few bullets, a headshot being instant from what I could tell. So, guy power slides over, stops for just long enough to shoot you in the face, drive to where you spawned and try it again, while each death being followed by some uncreative insult or you blow his face off and blow his tires out.
Thankfully you can make private matches with friends or alone, you can even still have players online hop into events such as racing if you let them into the event/not your world. In events they tell what control scheme each player is using mouse/controller and you can limit the game to who can use what or not.
To put it simply, you can find a lot in this game because you can do so freaking much. Want to play story missions? Go for it. Death match with friends or randoms? Sure. Play TENNIS with friends? Pool? Race Jets? Arm wrestle? Race? Steal cars, hunt, shoot eachother on the street, hunt bounties, kill innocents, buy property. Yeah, a lot for you to decide, it's a top quality port to boot so I can't say enough about this game. Regardless of where you buy this game you WILL need the Rockstar Social Club, keep that in mind.

Best GTA yet!vishiousx | April 16, 2015 | See all vishiousx's reviews »
This game is by far the best GTA. With it now on the PC it looks absolutely amazing and runs perfectly on my gaming PC. I have never had so much run driving around the streets just smashing into random things, and thats only the least destructive thing I do. I cannot tell you how much fun it is to destroy everything. 100/100 would destruct again
It's finally here.Furrek | April 14, 2015 | See all Furrek's reviews »
Rockstar for sure made PC gamers wait for the newest Grand Theft Auto game. Was all this time to wait worth? I'm sure it was. First of all, optimization was done great - I'm sure that recommended requirements exaggerated. 60 fps with settings on max makes this game much more beatiful and fun experience than on consoles. There are many improvements made and added ęven more stuff and things to do, compared to previous in series GTA 4, like playing in first person view or doing some heists with friends online. Rockstar is one of few developers that can make great games while each next are even better and more fun. It's must play, worth every price.
Good Job Rockstar, well worth the wait!uberpoo | April 14, 2015 | See all uberpoo's reviews »
After delays, i started to get nervous about the game. After playing it last night for a few hours, im VERY pleased with the effort they gave the PC side. I will always be a supporter of Rockstar as long as they turn out GREAT games like this. MP was a blast, and no lag, SP is fun (runs great on my A 10 6800K and GTX 750 ti) hats to you RS!
