GTA 5 game is launched: an epic masterpiece
GTA V launched on 17 September 2013.
It has proved to be the great epic masterpiece that gamers were anticipating! The vast open of San Antonio takes gaming to the next level with unprecedented realism and a profoundly immersive experience. GTA is the industry's most controversial brand, for obvious reasons. The game is such big business that it makes video game history and is one of the biggest events of all time in the entire entertainment industry worldwide.
Very few people will have time to experience everything that the game has to offer, but the game is worth trying even just for a glimpse of what state-of-the-art game development looks like. The fast cars and other vehicles are truly exquisite. I have always maintained the controversial view that GTA4 is the best driving game ever made, despite there being so much more to the game, and I now crown GTA5 with that title because it makes the previous game look as old it really is nothing else comes close to the quality of driving in GTA5. The attention to detail is exceptional, from the graffiti on the walls in places nobody needs to go, to background characters and overheard conversations. Like GTA4 which I played extensively, the multiplayer game is huge, rich and diverse, and players will be all over it for years.
Although I've completed the main GTA5 storyline I know I've only scratched the surface. But that doesn't matter, because at least I've stolen a fighter jet from the airbase and can now wage a one-man war on the whole city whenever I like -- and it's fun!!!!! As well as the Lazer jet which is now saved in my hangar, I also have Merriweather's Buzzard Attack helicopter (both have lock-on missiles) and plenty of other vehicles in my collection. Flying in GTA5 is an excellent experience -- and one of the most satisfying things in the game is the thrill and skill of a supersonic 180 turn by pulling back hard on the stick to turn backwards (but upside down) then nudging it left or right to get back the right way up.
This game has must-play status. What more can I say? Rockstar never disappoints. This will be the biggest game of 2013 and it will go down in history as one of the great classics. Trust me -- download it to your Xbox right now!
